Breast Augmentation

Breast Augmentation (Mammoplasty)

Breast augmentation, technically known as augmentation mammoplasty, is a surgical procedure to enhance the size and shape of a woman’s breast using saline-filled or Cohesive Silicone Gel implants. By inserting an implant behind each breast.

Surgeons are able to increase a woman’s bust line by one or more bra cup sizes.  It may also be done to balance asymmetry that may result from post mastectomy reconstruction.

Therefore, Breast Augmentation can enhance your breast size and shape, and give you the more proportional figure that you always wanted.

The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved both types of breast implants after determining that each are safe and effective options for women undergoing breast augmentation, reconstruction or revision surgery.
