What is an Augmentation Mammoplasty?

Breast augmentation surgery or augmentation mammoplasty, is a surgical procedure whose purpose is to increase the size and improve the shape of the breasts, thereby achieving greater harmony of the female body.

For women who have developed small breast tissue, suffer from flaccidity or asymmetry, augmentation mammoplasty through the placement of breast implants under the mammary gland or the pectoral muscle is the solution par excellence. The implants are placed through a small incision in the lower edge of the areola or in the inframammary fold.
