Breast Augmentation ( Augmentation Mammaplasty) is a surgical procedure most commonly performed by positioning saline or silicone breast implants in both breasts to increase size and fullness while improving body proportions.
During the consultation and medical examination, your surgeon will discuss what bothers you about your breasts, what your objectives are, and how they can best be achieved through surgical technique and implant choice. Most commonly, patients choose one of the two most popular implant options. Saline breast implants are filled with sterile salt water and FDA-approved for women 18 years of age or older. Silicone breast implants are filled with silicone gel and FDA-approved for women 22 years of age or older.
The surgery, itself, is actually quite simple. An incision is made under the breast, around the nipple or under the arm, and the implant is placed under or above the muscle in the breast depending upon the patient’s desired results and the surgeon’s decision regarding the most reliable and natural-looking surgical approach.
Breast augmentation surgery increases the size of breasts while enhancing shape, projection, positioning, and symmetry. The procedure is most commonly performed using silicone or saline breast implants, which are FDA-approved.

Yes. Placement of the implant below the breast tissue (sub glandular placement) does not affect the ability of the breast to produce milk.
