A breast augmentation is the procedure whereby small breasts are enhanced by placing silicone-based prostheses or implants either under the breast tissue itself or under the muscle, the most popular being under the muscle. The implants can be either silicone or saline, and it's basically a matter of the patient's choosing which one they like.
