Breast Augmentation

There is no perfect breast and every women will have her own goal and requirement. Some may desire only a subtle increase in size others may want it to be more noticeable. Breast enlargement is done by placing an implant behind the breast but outside the chest wall. The newer silicone gel implants feel like normal breasts on touch after surgery.

Breast augmentation may also be done using Fat Fill surgery procedure. In Fat Fill surgery your own fat is harvested from the abdomen and thighs. It is processed and filled along the breast to increase its size. One important drawback is that with time 50 to 70 % fat disappears and usually 4-5 repeat procedures are required over a span of two years.
