Breast enlargement (Breast Augmentation)
This website is intended to provide you with general information only. This information is not a substitute for advice from your Specialist Plastic Surgeon and does not contain all the known facts about this procedure.
Breast augmentation is cosmetic surgery in which implants are inserted beneath the breasts to enlarge them.
The implant type and size depends on factors such as how much bigger you want your breasts to be, your breast anatomy, skin thickness and elasticity, and body type.
Breast implants can be used to:
enlarge small breasts,
restore breast volume after weight reduction or pregnancy and breastfeeding,
even up asymmetric breasts,
reconstruct a breast after mastectomy or injury.
Implants are placed behind the breast, not within the breast tissue. Implants can be inserted either
- between the breast tissue and the chest muscle, or
- behind the large chest muscle.
Each position has its advantages and disadvantages. Your Specialist Plastic Surgeon can provide further details and will recommend which position is likely to be most suitable for you.
Am I a good candidate for breast augmentation treatment?
Breast augmentation is a highly individualised procedure and may not be suitable for everyone. Your Specialist Plastic Surgeon will assess your condition and general health, and plan the treatment that is best suited to you.
Breast augmentation can be done under general anaesthesia. Modern anaesthesia is safe and effective, but does have some risks. Your surgeon and/or anaesthetist will ask you about all the medications you are taking or have taken, and any allergies you may have. Make sure you have an up to date list before the surgery.
Before you decide on breast augmentation with implants, there are some important issues to keep in mind:
Breast augmentation does not correct droopy breasts. A breast lift (an operation to remove loose, excess skin that often involves shifting the nipple position) may be required as well.
Breast implants are not guaranteed to last a lifetime and future surgery may be required to replace one or both implants.
Smokers are at increased risk of complications from any surgery. If you are serious about undergoing cosmetic surgery, you should try to quit smoking.
Breast augmentation may be a good option for you if:
You are bothered by the feeling that your breasts are too small
Your breasts vary in size or shape
You are dissatisfied with your breasts losing shape and volume after pregnancy, weight loss, or with aging.
