Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure to enhance the size and shape of a woman's breast. The surgeon inserts an implant behind each breast. The breast implant is a silicone shell filled with either a salt-water solution (saline) or silicone gel.
There are a number of reasons for this surgery: To enhance the body contour of a woman who, for personal reasons, feels her breast size is too small. To correct a reduction in breast volume after pregnancy. To balance a difference in breast size. As a reconstructive technique following breast surgery.
