Breast Augmentation

Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation surgery increases or restores breast size using silicone gel implants, saline implants or in some cases, fat transfer. One of the most popular and frequently performed aesthetic surgery procedures, breast augmentation has a long and successful track record in satisfying women who wish to enhance, regain or restore balance to their figures.

Are you a good candidate for breast augmentation?
The following are some common reasons why you may want to consider breast augmentation:
You believe your breasts are too small for your body.
You feel self-conscious wearing a swimsuit or form-fitting or low-cut tops.
Clothes that fit your hips are too large at the bust line.
Your breasts have become smaller or less firm after you've had children.
Your breasts have become smaller due to weight loss.
One of your breasts is noticeably smaller than the other.

If you are in good health, have a positive attitude and realistic expectations, you are most likely a good candidate for this procedure.

How is a breast augmentation procedure performed?
In breast augmentation using implants, your surgeon makes an incision, lifts the breast tissue, creates a pocket in the chest/breast area and places an implant in the pocket. An additional option for breast augmentation is autologous fat transfer, a process in which your surgeon removes your own fat, using liposuction, from a fat-yielding body part (such as your abdomen, thighs, or flanks) processes it and then injects it into your breasts. This procedure is currently considered experimental, due to a limited history of data, but the process has shown promise.
