Breast Augmentation

By Awinita Smith

Breast augmentation is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures in the United States. Known within the medical world as augmentation mammoplasty; breast augmentation refers to a surgical procedure in which the size and shape of a person's breast tissue are enhanced through the implementation of breast implants.

There are many reasons behind breast surgery. One may want to correct disproportionate look of the body or may be having problems with breast.

Breast augmentation surgery will not improve nipple asymmetry, move your breasts closer together, lift droopy breasts, or remove stretch marks.

There is no clear-cut answer to how much breast augmentation costs. Breast augmentation costs will vary from city to city depending on the availability of board certified plastic surgeons that perform this treatment.

Breast aesthetics are important to all women. In order to have breasts, which fit your body size and shape, you may consider a breast augmentation, breast lift, or breast reduction.

Breast reduction is an operative procedure in which breast tissue and excess breast skin are removed. The removal of breast tissue results in a smaller breast. Removal of excess skin results in a breast that is higher on the chest wall and more aesthetic. This is an important component of this operation, because it allows the breast to be restored to a youthful appearance and shape. If excess skin were not removed, the breast would actually look worse following breast reduction than before surgery.

The only drawback to removing excess skin is that it causes visible scars. Fortunately, the scars can be limited to areas that are hidden when you are wearing a bra - they are located around the nipple, below the nipple, and along the crease beneath the breast. The scars fade after surgery, but it can take years for them to do so and truthfully they will be there for life.

Many men strive to develop their pectoral muscles for a look of bulk and projection. Some men work out extensively and are still unable to develop the pectoral muscles that they hope to achieve. Fortunately for them, it is possible to enlarge the appearance of their chest muscles (pectorals muscles, "pec" muscles, or simply "pecs") by placing solid silicone implants.
