Breast Augmentation Definition
Breast augmentation — also known as augmentation mammoplasty — is a surgical procedure to increase fullness and projection of the breasts or to improve symmetry of the breasts. During breast augmentation, breast implants are placed under the breast tissue or chest muscles.
What Breast Augmentation surgery will do
A breast augmentation procedure is used cosmetically to:
- Restore breast volume lost following a pregnancy usually due to breast feeding or weight loss
- Enlarge naturally small breasts, usually the result of heredity
- Achieve better breast symmetry when breasts are disproportionate in size and shape
- Enhance a woman’s self-image and self-confidence
What Breast Augmentation surgery won’t do
Breast augmentation does not correct severely drooping breasts. For severely drooping breasts, a breast lift is in order. Often times, a breast lift is used in conjunction with a breast augmentation. Both breast augmentation and breast lift procedures are part of the Mommy Makeover.
Breast lifting can often be done at the same time as your augmentation. However, sometimes they may require a separate operation. MommyMakeover.org will help you find the correct plastic surgeon for your needs. Once you have a plastic surgeon, he will assist you in making this decision.
