Breast augmentation or breast enhancement is quite common these days. That does not mean though that it is a smart decision to just go ahead and have the procedure done without educating yourself on its possible effects on your health.
Granted that breast enhancement procedures these days are generally safe, as with any invasive surgical procedure, there are possible complications that can arise. This is true whether you opt for silicone gel implants or for saline implants.

expert that has a very solid track record not only for performing excellent surgeries, but also with dealing with resulting complications.
