Breast augmentation surgery is a Universal Plastic Surgery procedure that is used to enlarge a woman’s breasts. Breast augmentation is the most popular cosmetic surgery procedure in the United States as well as in Costa Rica. And many women visit us from the United States and Canada to get this kind of surgical procedure.
Types of Procedures
Breast augmentation can be performed using either saline or silicone implants.
The most common method of breast augmentation surgery is to insert an implant behind the breast tissue and chest muscle. However, a new method of breast augmentation surgery that is becoming increasingly popular, although less recommended, is to insert the implant in front of the chest muscle.
The decision to have breast augmentation surgery is a personal one. Some women choose to have breast augmentation surgery to improve their self-image, while others have the surgery to correct a congenital defect or to improve the appearance of their breasts after pregnancy or weight loss or to improve the symmetry of their breasts.
