A breast augmentation is a breast enlargement procedure. This surgical procedure uses breast implants to enhance the shape of the breasts. A breast auto-augmentation is a variation of a breast uplift procedure that instead uses the patient’s own natural breast tissue to increase volume in the upper portion of the breast without the need for an implant, effectively a natural breast enlargement. A breast auto-augmentation is not designed to increase the size of the breast, just to enhance the shape and is most commonly performed on patients after a breast implant removal procedure. The advantage is that following surgery your breast size should be similar in size or slightly smaller than if you still had the implant in place.
