Breast augmentation surgery is one of the most important aesthetic surgeries that women care about.
Deformations in the breasts or genetic deformities are easily corrected by plastic surgery. As in all aesthetic surgeries, attention should be paid to the integrity of the body, and breast size should be determined based on breast volume, shoulder width and chest circumference. In addition, waist and hip measurement also plays a big role. Considering all these ratios, breast augmentation surgery will provide an aesthetic appearance and also allow the possibility of correcting possible asymmetries.
