Breast augmentation is the insertion of implants to increase the size of the breasts, or to replace breast volume lost with childbearing, breastfeeding or significant weight loss.
Most women desiring implants find that their breasts are proportionally smaller than the rest of their bodies.
Breast augmentation can help restore a woman’s sense of proportion and in many women can improve self-esteem and confidence.
Both saline and silicone breast implants are used for women undergoing breast augmentation for the first time.

Breast augmentation is the second most common cosmetic operation in the U.S., second only to liposuction. Patient satisfaction tends to be very high. One study showed an overall satisfaction rate of 97%.
AM I A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR BREAST AUGMENTATION?
Any healthy woman who feels that her self-esteem or body image would be improved with larger breasts is a potential candidate for breast augmentation.
The most common types of patients who undergo breast augmentation are women who have lost breast volume after childbearing, and women who have always had small breasts in relation to the rest of their body.
Before any cosmetic surgery, you should be in good health, at a stable weight, with a regular exercise program and good nutrition without any major dietary restrictions.
You should also have the support (emotional and physical) support of your family or friends during your recovery so that you will have assistance with activities of daily living, and tasks requiring heavy lifting for 1-2 weeks after surgery.
