Breast augmentation, also known as augmentation mammaplasty or “boob job,” involves the use of implants to enhance the size and shape of a woman's breasts.
It is typically done for cosmetic reasons, to achieve a more proportionate and attractive appearance.
During the procedure, the surgeon makes an incision in the breast and inserts a silicone or saline implant underneath the breast tissue or chest muscle.
The size, shape, and placement of the implant are customized to each patient's individual goals and anatomy.
Breast augmentation is a popular choice for women who are dissatisfied with the size or shape of their breasts, or who have lost breast volume due to aging, weight loss, or pregnancy.
It can also be used to correct asymmetry or other congenital breast abnormalities.
