A breast augmentation, also known as augmentation mammaplasty, is a surgical treatment involving implants designed to either fulfill a desire for fuller breasts or to restore breast volume lost after weight reduction or pregnancy. Implants are inserted and are filled with one of two solutions: saline or silicone.
Breast augmentation procedures are a permanent solution for enhancing breast size or shape. A certain degree of maintenance may be needed in order to sustain the longevity of breast implants. Usually, maintenance consists of regular checkups with your doctor or periodic breast scans to detect any potential rupturing.
