For Small Breasts, Sagging Breasts
Physiologically speaking, the breast is just a secretory gland and a skin appendage. But in actual fact, a woman's breasts are not just sexual objects but also constitute an important part of her self-image. Their status as an erogeneous zone results from their extreme sensitivity arising from the large network of sensory nerves found all over the breasts and especially in the nipples.
Basic to the procedure is the insertion of an implant (or prosthesis), a soft envelope made of silicone, and filled with one of a variety of materials. This is surgically inserted within, or more precisely under, the breast. There are variations not only in the filler material, but also in the site of the incision that the surgeon chooses to insert the implant, as well as where he places it in relation to the breast muscles.
