In choosing the proper prosthesis for you, your body structure, the thickness of your breast tissue, and the size you desire are considered. By this means, whether the prosthesis should be water drop or ball-shaped is decided. Because milk ducts aren’t affected by breast augmentation surgery, no problems occur in breastfeeding. The breast is penetrated through a little cut around nipples or from under the breasts, silicone implant is placed under muscles or muscle membrane. In recent years, procedures carried on with the use of body fat are also preferred.
