BREAST Augmentation

Breast augmentation is one of the most common plastic surgery procedures, helping woman who aren’t happy with the size of their breasts or the appearance due to changes such as pregnancy, age, genetics and weight change.

Breast implants are placed either under the breast tissue and over the breast muscle, or under both the chest muscle and the breast tissue. Your surgeon will discuss with you the most suitable procedure for you.

Breast augmentation helps to increase or balance the size of the breasts, restore breast volume and restore the shape of the breast.

Breast augmentation alone cannot correct significantly sagging or drooping breasts and your surgeon may suggest a breast lift, which can be performed in conjunction with this procedure.

Methods commonly used for incision and insertion are :- at the nipple, under the breast and under the armpit.

The size and placement of the implant chosen depends on many factors such as your cup size, desired cup size, your build and the amount of breast tissue you have.
