Breast augmentation or augmentation mammoplasty helps enlarge the size of the breast permanently. It also enhances the body shape.
The procedure can correct an under developed breast or a breast that has become small after child birth. The size of the breast can be increased depending on the size and loose skin of the existing breast. This usually involves the use of silicone implants placed deeply in pockets beneath the breast and chest muscle. The skin incision (cut) at surgery is placed usually under the lower breast fold to keep it least visible. Subsequent breast feeding can be done normally after breast augmentation.
