Breast augmentation also called breast enlargement or “boob job”, is a plastic surgery in which the size of the breasts is increased by breast implants or fat injections to breasts.
The surgery can also restore saggy breasts and help achieve a more rounded breast look.
Breast augmentation may not be sufficient to correct drooping breasts. You may also need a breast lift surgery along with a breast augmentation for sagging breasts to look fuller. As an alternative method, endoscopic transaxillary breast augmentation makes it possible to treat the same deformities, with the same refinements, as the more traditional approaches. If you consider this method, you may talk with your surgeon about all possible approaches included this, to meet your expectations.
According to data released by The International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ISAPS), breast augmentation surgery is on the first rank among top 5 plastic surgery procedures with almost 1.7 million procedure performed in 2017. The following 4 procedures are Liposuction, Eyelid Surgery, Rhinoplasty and Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck).
