It is also referred to as augmentation mammoplasty, or breast implant surgery or breast enhancement. A Breast augmentation procedure is performed by placing an implant either behind the existing breast muscle or in front.

The procedure can also be performed without an implant, utilizing the individual’s own fat as a fat transfer procedure. This type of augmentation is currently considered experimental. It has shown good results in specific types of situations where volume requirements are small.
