What's the Best Breast Size for Your Body?

When it comes to breast implants, size matters.

Breast enlargement

Breast enlargement is a popular cosmetic surgery procedure designed to change the size and shape of a womans breasts. This procedure can increase the cup size of your breasts and/or balance an asymmetrical appearance. Also known as augmentation mammaplasty, breast augmentation can also restore fullness to saggy breasts. (Courtesy of Bruce Chau, D.O., F.A.C.O.S.)

Saline vs. Silicone

After years of waiting, silicone implants are back. Since 1992 there has been a ban imposed by the FDA on the sale of silicone gel implants. Women wanting silicone implants, since then, have had to “qualify” for the implants by meeting specific criteria to be included in a study. (Courtesy of David Edwin Kim, M.D., F.A.C.S.)
