Breast augmentation or augmentation mammoplasty, is a surgical procedure to increase the size of the breasts in those cases in which the woman considers them small or because they have been reduced. It also allows correcting the asymmetry or size difference between both breasts.
It is done by introducing a silicone gel prosthesis under the breast to increase one or several sizes. The implant can be placed in front of the pectoral muscle, or behind the muscle, depending on each case. As for the incision, it is located in the submammary groove (in some cases this incision is made around the areola), performing the operation under general anesthesia.
