The surgery is done at an outpatient surgery clinic or in a hospital. Most women receive general anesthesia for this surgery. You will be asleep and pain-free. If you receive local anesthesia, you will be awake and will receive medicine to numb your breast area to block pain.

There are different ways to place breast implants:
In the most common technique, the surgeon makes a cut (incision) on the underside of your breast, in the natural skin fold. The surgeon places the implant through this opening. Your scar may be a little more visible if you are younger, thin, and have not yet had children.The implant may be placed through a cut under your arm. The surgeon may perform this surgery using an endoscope. This is a tool with a camera and surgical instruments at the end. The endoscope is inserted through the cut. There will be no scar around your breast. But, you may have a visible scar on the underside of your arm.

Breast Augmentation is a surgical treatment by which the natural breasts are enhanced to appear bigger. It involves using breast implants or fat (fat transfer breast augmentation) to increase the size of your breasts or restore breast volume. Breast augmentation can increase the fullness of your breasts and improve the contours of your figure.
