Breast Augmentation is an operation to increase the size of the breasts using implants. The implants have a silicone shell that can contain either sterile saline/water or silicone liquid/gel. Depending on the size of the breast, a pocket is surgically created either underneath the breast tissue or underneath the muscle underneath the breast. The surgery is performed under general anesthesia. Depending on the type of implant used, it can be performed either through a scar around the nipple, a scar underneath the breast, a scar in the armpit or very occasionally, through a scar around the belly button.
