What Is Breast Augmentation?
Breast augmentation surgery enhances the shape, size, and projection of the breasts using implants. Women who have naturally small breasts or who are unhappy with the shape of their breasts can greatly benefit from this procedure. There are many options with breast augmentation, and the procedure is customized to achieve the specific breast look and feel the patient desires.

Achieved With Breast Augmentation Surgery
Some people mistakenly believe that breast augmentation always produces overly large breasts that look obviously fake. However, there are many techniques that can be used for the procedure in order to achieve breasts that look and feel very natural. Results can be very subtle so that no one will know you underwent breast augmentation surgery unless you want them to.
Breast augmentation can enhance the breasts to improve not only their size, but also their shape. There is a range of implant types and shapes that can be used to achieve the rounder, fuller breasts you desire.
Many women go to great lengths to achieve their desired cleavage, from wearing extremely padded bras to taping their breasts together. Breast augmentation can help achieve breasts that exhibit your desired amount of cleavage.
All women have some degree of breast asymmetry, but it is usually unnoticeable. However, some women have one breast that is significantly less developed and smaller than the other. Breast augmentation can be performed with implants of varying sizes to produce breasts that are as close to the same size and shape as possible.
Pregnancy, significant weight loss, or just natural aging can cause the breasts to lose volume over time. Breast augmentation can restore volume to the breasts as well as improve a minimal degree of sagging. Patients with significant sagging can greatly benefit from breast augmentation combined with a breast lift.
Choosing The Right Implant Type
Saline implants consist of an outer silicone shell filled with a sterile saltwater solution. These implants are filled after they are inserted into the breast, so a smaller incision can be used.
Silicone implants consist of an outer silicone shell filled with silicone gel. These implants are said to produce a more natural feel because they are soft like natural breast tissue.
Gummy bear implants are a type of silicone implant with a thicker, more cohesive gel filling. These implants come in a variety of shapes to achieve specific breast appearances. Gummy bear implants are less likely to rupture, and if a rupture does occur, they will retain their original shape.
