Breast augmentation, commonly referred to as a “boob job”, is a cosmetic procedure that is performed to give a person a greater size, contour and shape to the breasts. The breast augmentation process is performed when a surgeon places silicone breast implants or saline breast implants in the targeted area of the breasts. Patients that do not want to have breast implants placed in the body can have breast augmentation performed by transferring fat from other areas of the body such as the buttock or abdomen.
