Breasts are an important symbol of femininity for women. Advancement in medical science has now given us the freedom to bring changes in how we look. We no longer have to accept the bodies we were born with. Now women who are not satisfied with their bodies especially breasts, have the option of breast augmentation, which is also known as breast enlargement.
From 1991 to 2003, the popularity of the procedure dropped due to concerns about the implants used during the surgery. Since then the science has advanced and now the implants used are proved safe. The safer implants have led to the increase of the popularity of this procedure.
Breast enlargement is a surgical procedure performed under anesthesia. The aim of the procedure is to increase the size of the breasts. Surgeons may use general anesthesia, or local anesthesia combined with a sedative. In this procedure, implants made from artificial materials are surgically inserted for the purpose of enlarging a woman’s chest. The procedure can correct the chest of different sizes, restore shape and reconstruct it following a mastectomy.
