Breast Implants have become the most popular plastic surgery procedure performed in the United States. The breast augmentation procedure is performed under either general anesthesia or intravenous sedation. The breast augmentation incision may be made either around the areola (periareolar incision), in the bottom crease of the breast (inframammary incision), or in the armpit (transaxillary incision). The incision decision is made based on a number of factors from personal preference to the type and size of the implants being used.

Next, the implant is place either under the pectoral muscle or over the pectoral muscle. Again, the decision of implant placement is largely personal and depends on the type and size of implant being used. The implant itself may be filled with either saline solution or silicone gel and comes in a variety of sizes, shapes, and textures.
