Breast Augmentation very simply put is making small breasts larger. There are about 300,000 breast augmentation procedures performed in the US every year. In fact, it’s one of the top plastic surgery procedures.
Breast augmentation is very safe. From a surgical standpoint, it’s quite easy to do. Most of the controversy about the safety of breast augmentation revolved around the devices that we use: the implants themselves. In past decades they weren’t safe, but now the newest implants are very safe.
