The Facts on Breast Augmentation

If you were asked what one of the most popular plastic surgery procedure in America is, what would you answer? If you picked breast augmentation, then you’re correct. It ranks as one of the most frequently-requested procedures, and is an area of plastic surgery in which Dr. Randall B. Weil has extensive experience.

But why is it so popular? And what’s involved in the process, anyways? These are common questions we hear a lot at Randall B. Weil MD, FACS in San Francisco, California. So to help give you some clarity on the issue let’s answer them.

Why are they so popular?

A breast augmentation is a procedure designed to create a better size and shape of your breasts, which in turn creates a more attractive figure. This obviously expands your wardrobe options, including in the swim wear department, and it can also increase your self-confidence. When you feel better about your appearance it’s easier to have more confidence in yourself in many different situations.

How do they work?

The breast augmentation process is actually much simpler thank you might imagine. After a consultation with Dr. Randall B. Weil in which the two of you agree on the best new shape for your breasts, you’ll go in for a surgery that consists of inserting saline implants behind your breasts. That’s what increases their volume. The procedure is now more popular than ever.
