Overview of Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation in Delhi is a cosmetic surgical procedure designed to enhance the size and shape of the breasts.

Additionally, it serves as a reconstructive option post-mastectomy to restore breast tissue removed to prevent breast cancer.

Breast implants involve inserting a sac filled with saline solution or silicone gel. These implants need regular monitoring and typically require replacement after about ten years.
