The main reasons for that are as evident: breast size has always used to be some ubiquitous criterion of a woman’s beauty. And it is by no doubt one of the most effective weapons in the armory of any woman, attracting the opposite sex. But still, women who want to increase their breasts size by performing the breast augmentation usually hesitate to take such a decision, not knowing all the potential risks of it.
