Breast Augmentation is one of the most popular and commonly performed plastic surgery procedures. Women seek out breast augmentation for a variety of personal reasons—some have always felt their breasts were disproportionately small for their figure, or simply for their personal preference, while others have found that their breasts have reduced in size over time, particularly after weight loss, or after pregnancy and nursing. The breast augmentation procedure may even be performed to correct a severe case of breast asymmetry (when one breasts is more than a cup size different from the other breast).
Breast augmentation is achieved through the use of breast implants that may be filled with a silicone gel or a saline solution. The decision to go with saline implants or silicone implants is largely a personal preference—there are pros and cons to both, so it is important to educate yourself to fully understand your options.
