A 29-year-old female asked:
Is a surgical biopsy more traumatic to the breast than a breast augmentation? i know they aren't related but just wondering what causes more trauma.

Breast Surgery: It is a relative question depending on a lot of variables. But here goes, a breast biopsy is in one area where augmentation involves the whole of both breasts. So the trauma of an augmentation under normal circumstances will be more traumatic.
