What is breast augmentation?

Breast augmentation surgery is one of the topmost surgical processes used in cosmetic surgery. It is opted by a huge range of women who have small to zero cup size. Breast augmentation is typically common in females of almost every age, both married or unmarried as small boobs are the problem of every woman. But breast augmentation is supposed to be the best solution for those who want to regain their breast after cancer treatment. Breast reconstruction can be best achieved by using breast augmentation technique. It has a number of techniques and methods including tissue-based breast reconstruction, saline and silicone breast implant, fat transfer technique and above all general surgical treatment. The recovery time of breast augmentation in Dubai is almost 1 to 2 complete months depending upon the condition of the patient.

The treatment procedure for breast augmentation:

Breast augmentation is generally done by a common surgical method that includes incisions and cuts.

What is a breast lift?
