Breast Augmentation

Breast Augmentation - What it is

Breast augmentation, also known as augmentation mammoplasty, involves surgical placement of an implant behind each breast to increase its volume and enhance its shape. Alternatively, this increase in breast volume can also be achieved by fat grafting, using excess fat from other areas of your body.

Breast augmentation can help to improve the following problems:
• Small underdeveloped breasts
• Breast asymmetry (if one breast is much smaller than the other)
• Loss of shape and volume following childbirth, weight loss, or ageing

Increasing the fullness and projection of your breasts can improve the proportions of your figure and your ability to wear clothes, leading to greater self-confidence.

Breast augmentation alone cannot correct sagging or droopy breasts. If your breasts are very droopy, a breast lift (Breast Lift (Mastopexy) may be required in conjunction with breast augmentation, either at the same time, or during a separate operation. Your plastic surgeon will assist you in making this decision.
