Breast augmentation, also known as breast enlargement, is a cosmetic surgical procedure used to enhance the size and shape of the breasts. The procedure is ideal for those who are dissatisfied with the size or shape of their breasts, or who have experienced changes in their breast size and shape due to pregnancy, weight loss, or aging.
During breast augmentation, implants are placed in the breast tissue to increase their size and improve their shape.
The implants are made of silicone and can be placed above or below the chest muscle. The procedure is performed under general anesthesia .
After the procedure, patients can expect some swelling and discomfort. However, these can be compensated with the help of medication and aftercare.
