Augmentation mammoplasty is the medical term for breast augmentation. Also referred to as breast enhancement or breast enlargement, this type of plastic surgery involves placing silicone or saline breast implants either behind the breast tissue or beneath the chest muscle to add size, shape, and fullness to the breast. Breast augmentation can be performed to make smaller breasts appear larger, balance breasts that are asymmetrical, or restore fullness that has diminished with age or as a result of pregnancy.
The ideal candidate for breast augmentation surgery is a healthy adult who is well informed about the results and risks of receiving breast implants. An ideal candidate for breast augmentation will also have realistic expectations for the outcome of the surgery.
