Breast augmentation, sometimes referred to as “breast augmentation” or “adjustment function” by patients, involves the use of breast implants or fat transfers to increase the size of your breasts. This procedure can also restore lost breast volume after weight loss or pregnancy, obtain a rounded breast shape or improve asymmetry of the natural breast size
Breast augmentation is also referred to as breast augmentation. When fat from another part of the patient’s body is used to create the enhanced breast size, the procedure is referred to as breast augmentation by fat transfer.

silicone breast implants
Silicone breast implants are filled with silicone gel. The gel is somewhat similar to normal breast tissue. If the implant leaks, the gel may remain inside the implant shell, or it may leak into the breast implant pocket. A leaking silicone gel-filled implant will not collapse.
If you choose silicone implants, you may need to visit a plastic surgeon regularly to make sure the implants are working properly. An ultrasound or MRI scan can assess the condition of the breast implants.
Silicone breast implants are approved by the FDA for enlargement in women 22 years of age or older.
