Breast augmentation, or augmentation mammoplasty, is one of the most common cosmetic surgery treatments. Breast augmentation is typically done to enhance the size and improve the drooping of the breasts. They are also carried out to reconstruct the breast following significant weight loss, pregnancy or mastectomy.
Reasons to undergo breast augmentation vary from patient to patient. Some do it for personal reasons to boost their image and self-esteem, while some undergo the procedure to address conditions such as asymmetrical breasts, macromastia and other congenital chest deformities.
