Breast augmentation is often a cosmetic procedure which is used to increase breast size, improve the shape, or restore symmetry to the breasts. There are a number of reasons why patients choose to undergo breast augmentation surgery, but generally it is a matter of appearance. In other circumstances it may be used for reconstruction after breast cancer or for congenital (birth) related conditions. Breast augmentation surgery is a popular procedure among ‘backyard practitioners’ and overseas surgeons who practice surgery with little or no formal qualification. Due to this, breast augmentation is one of the most common ‘botched’ surgeries, leading to a number of myths and misconceptions.
