Breast Augmentation Surgery

Dr. Xiaoti Xu, Plastic Surgeon, Mia Aesthetics with West Kendall Baptist Hospital, says breast augmentation is for someone who has smaller breasts and wants to have them enlarged, using most of the time an implant. He explains there are usually two ways to do an augmentation: you can use a saline implant, which is filled with water, or you can use what is called a silicone implant, which is filled with silicone. "They are similar in that both have the same shell, it is just what is inside that is different."
