Breast plays a central role in the perception of femininity. Breast augmentation is one of the most common procedures in aesthetic surgery. Classically this procedure aims to increase the breast volume with silicone implants. During the same procedure is possible to correct asymmetries and shape defects.

This technique has been widely employed for several purposes, such as filler for wrinkles, lips, scars and finally for breast augmentation. The advantages of this technique are several and are listed below.
