Augmentation mammoplasty is a cosmetic surgery procedure to increase breast size and enhance breast shape,through implants chosen to fit with the patient's anatomical contours, creating larger, fuller and more beautiful breasts. The implants are placed under the breast tissue or chest muscles. Augmentation mammoplasty is also widely used following treatment for breast cancer, trauma and correction of asymmetric breasts.
Breast implants aren't guaranteed to last a lifetime. The average lifespan of an implant is about 10 years. Implant rupture is a possibility. Also, implants won’t prevent age-related sagging of breasts, and factors such as weight gain or weight loss might change the way the breasts look.
