Breast Enlargement Surgery
Breast enlargement is one of the most commonly performed cosmetic surgeries in the UK. The procedure involves the insertion of implants under the breast tissue to increase the size or change the shape of the breasts.
The procedure is also often referred to as a breast augmentation or breast enhancement.
