Breast Augmentation is one of the most commonly performed cosmetic surgery procedures performed in the United States. The decision to enhance the breasts is a personal one of a variety of motivations. Some women have simply always wished they had larger breasts than they were born with, and other women may have lost breast mass over time after weight loss or having children. Breast Augmentation can also be performed to correct a significant breast asymmetry, when one breast is a cup size or more different than the other breast.
Breast Augmentation is most commonly performed using breast implants. Breast implants are filled with either a saline solution or silicone gel. The decision to go with either saline or silicone implants is largely a personal preference. There are pros and cons to both options. In addition to traditional implants, breast enhancement is also sometimes performed using a fat transfer. A fat transfer takes fat from another area of the body and moves it to the breasts.
