Using either a silicone or saline solution filled implant this procedure increases the size and volume of the patient’s breasts. A breast augmentation improves the fullness and projection of the breast as well as making the body more proportionate. The incision can be made on the under portion of the areola, on the underarm or through the belly button. The surgeon then creates a pocket between the muscles of the chest to place the implant in. A breast augmentation serves to increase size not to lift the breast, in which case a lift would be needed. These options should be discussed with the surgeon to come to an informed decision.
