Breast Augmentation is a safe and common operation, performed to enhance breast size and to improve breast shape. This is accomplished by placement of breast implant, either saline or silicone gel filled, beneath the breast and chest wall muscle. It is done through a small well hidden incision in the armpit.
Breast augmentation is done as an outpatient under general anesthesia in our office surgery center. Recovery is fairly quick and patients are happy. Women choose to undergo the procedure for a variety of reasons:
- To increase breast size in order to improve body proportions and aesthetics.
- To correct the loss in breast volume following pregnancy and breast feeding.
- To balance breast size when an asymmetry exists.
- As an adjunct to breast reconstruction.
