Breast Augmentation

« Back to Glossary Index

Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure that involves using breast implants or fat from other parts of the body to increase the size of the breasts or restore their shape. The procedure is also sometimes referred to as breast enlargement or breast enhancement.

Breast augmentation is typically done for cosmetic reasons, although it may also be used to restore the size and shape of the breasts after surgery or other trauma. The procedure is typically performed by a plastic surgeon and may be done using general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation.

Breast Augmentation
There are several different types of breast implants that can be used, including saline implants and silicone implants. The choice of implant will depend on a variety of factors, including the patient’s goals, body type, and medical history.

 

Recovery from breast augmentation surgery typically takes several weeks, and patients may experience swelling, bruising, and discomfort during this time. It is important to follow the post-surgical instructions provided by the surgeon to ensure a smooth recovery.
