What is Breast Augmentation?
Breast surgeries take place every single day, whether it’s to reconstruct after a mastectomy or for cosmetic purposes. Breast augmentation can help increase the fullness and projection of breasts, improve the balance of breast and hip contours, and enhance self-image as well as confidence.
There are many reasons one can undergo breast augmentation, but it’s important to know all you can about the process before you begin. First off, Breast augmentation sometimes referred to as a “breast aug” or “boob job” by patients, involves using breast implants or fat transfer to increase the size of your breasts.
This plastic surgery can also restore breast volume lost after weight reduction or pregnancy, achieve a more rounded breast shape or improve natural breast size asymmetry.
The symptoms and signs of the disorder include;
- Breast Augmentation Creates Symmetry
- Breast Augmentation Adds Volume
- Raises Chest Level
- Post-surgery Reconstruction
- Natural Appearance
- Gain confidence with Breast Augmentation
Before & After
The decision to have a plastic surgery is extremely personal and you will have to weigh the potential benefits in achieving your goals with the risks and potential complications of breast augmentation. Only you can make that decision for yourself.
You will be asked to sign a consent form to ensure that you fully understand the procedure and any risks and potential complications.
Possible breast augmentation surgery risks include:
- Anesthesia risks
- Changes in nipple or breast sensation
- Poor scarring
- Wrong or faulty position of the implant
- Implant leakage or rupture
- The formation of tight scar tissue around the implant (capsular contracture)
- Fluid accumulation (seroma)
- Wrinkling of the skin over the implant
- Persistent pain
- Possibility of revision surgery
Risks will be fully discussed prior to your consent. It is important that you discuss all your questions directly with your plastic surgeon.

Whatever you’re personal reasons, Breast Augmentation at American Aesthetic Medical Center will provide the best doctor, leading techniques and facilities for your treatment. Our expert team is acutely aware that the appearance of your body can affect your confidence and everyday happiness, and as such we handle each case with sensitivity and discretion.
Careful planning with you of the size and shape is essential and this is followed by a perfect technique. However, the implant alone may not be adequate. We may need to consider also carrying out a breast lift or mastopexy. Thin patients may need to have the implant put at a deeper level under the pectoral muscle to avoid sharp edges making the implant visible.
These days we often need to disguise these edges with fat grafts (Lipofilling). This is such a useful technique for final adjustments.
