What is Breast Augmentation and what are the Surgical Alternatives?

If you look up the definition of breast enlargement, the term simply makes reference to placing an implant under the breast area for cosmetic purposes, usually for making the breasts larger.

In many cases, it is done as reconstructive surgery in women who have suffered from breast cancer.   The implants usually contain some type of saline or silicone solution. But breast enlargement is a bit more complex, why the term surgical is the only reference made to breast enlargement is beyond me.

If you are looking for ways to increase the size of your breasts you may want to consider other options. Breast surgery is an invasive procedure and should not be taken lightly; there are many other alternatives that are not only cheaper but much safer.
