Breast augmentation, more commonly known as breast enlargement or a boob job, is a cosmetic procedure that typically involves the use of breast implants or fat grafting (aka fat transfer) to enhance the size, shape and symmetry of the breasts. It is often performed in conjunction with a mastopexy; a breast-lifting surgical procedure designed to correct sagging breasts which may have occurred as a result of aging, breastfeeding or weight loss.
