Breast augmentation is a cosmetic procedure which improves the appearance of the breasts by enhancing its size and adding definition to the curves. Breast augmentation is usually performed with implants.
Implants vary in size, shape, and materials. Usually, saline or silicone gel implants are used for breast enhancement surgeries. The size and shape of the implant are finalized with the help of your surgeon keeping your aesthetic goals in the mind.
Are Results of Breast Augmentation Permanent?
The effects of breast augmentation are not permanent but they can last for more than 10 years. You may have to replace or remove them after these years. There is a risk of leakage and rupture of the implants particularly silicone gel implants pose a higher risk of leakage.
How Many Times Can You Undergo a Breast Augmentation?
Breast augmentation is not a once in a lifetime kind of surgery. It serves aesthetic goals, if your goals vary over the period of time, you can go for breast enhancement according to your desires.
Is It Possible To Alter the Results of Breast Augmentation?
