Is there a way to write a FullSimplify at the end of the line with some assumptions?

That is, if I write

a^2+b^2+2 a b //FullSimplify[...]

is there any way to include some assumptions for a,b?

Use

Assuming[a > 0, a^2 + b^2 + 2 a b // FullSimplify]

or

a^2 + b^2 + 2 a b // FullSimplify[#, a > 0] &
