Breast augmentation is a procedure that aims to increase the dimension of small or underdeveloped breasts or those that have lost volume after the birth of a child. The increase is obtained by means of an implant (prosthesis). In specific cases the patients' own fat can be used to moderately increase the volume of the breast.Picture gallery
