Breast Surgeries:

Breast surgeries are common in women who want to improve their body shapes. These mammoplasty procedures include:

Breast augmentation or Breast Enlargement:

This surgery is performed by using saline or silicone gel prosthetics and sometimes with fat grafting. These cosmetic procedures are common in women who may feel that their breasts are not equal. Even women whose breasts have changed shape as a result of breastfeeding and pregnancy can have it. Some women may even go for breast enlargement to boost their self-esteem and sexuality.
