Breast augmentation surgery is their ideal choice, which would help to add volume to the breasts. It is one of the most effective methods and is very popular.
Breast augmentation surgery doesn’t involve serious risk factors or complications. The positive results of this augmentation surgery include:

Breast Augmentation Surgery – Incision Access Points
Breast augmentation surgery should always be performed by an experienced and qualified plastic surgeon who takes into consideration your aesthetic goals. This plastic surgery is usually provided using implants. The implants used are FDA approved saline and silicone implants, and these are placed via three common access incisions.
Underneath the breast
Around the areola
Through the armpit
Usually, plastic surgeons prefer the incision underneath the breast. This approach allows the surgeon to place the implant accurately under the muscle or under the breast parenchyma. The incision is also effectively concealed.
The incision around the areola is also unnoticeable because it is at the junction of the darker areola skin and the lighter breast skin. A risk associated with this access incision is that there may be changes in sensation of the nipple-areola complex. Another disadvantage with this approach is that silicone implants can be placed only if the areola has sufficient size.
If the implant is placed through the armpit, the advantage is that the incision is away from the breast. It also heals faster in most patients. The plastic surgeon can conveniently place the implants under the muscle.
Silicone vs. Saline Implants
Both these implants are safe options. They have a silicone shell. Silicone implants are filled with silicone gel, while saline implants contain sterile salt water. The difference is that silicone implants come pre-filled by the manufacturer, but saline implants are filled after placement in its pocket. Silicone implants require larger incisions compared to saline implants.
Silicone implants have a more natural feel compared to saline implants.
