What is Breast Augmentation?
Breast augmentation is designed to enhance the size and shape of breasts with the placement of silicone or saline breast implants. There are a variety of implant options and advanced surgical techniques to achieve a patient’s desired shape, volume, and projection as well as improve any existing asymmetry between the breasts. As one of the most sought-after cosmetic surgeries, breast augmentation is well-known for providing beautiful, natural-looking results customized for each patient to best complement their overall body proportions.
Our board-certified female plastic surgeon in Nashville, Dr. Amaka Nwubah, ensures each patient receives attentive care, beginning with a personal and individualized consultation to thoroughly understand their concerns and aesthetic goals in order to provide a custom-tailored treatment plan.
