What is Breast Augmentation?

Breast Augmentation is a surgical procedure in which implants are used for creating fuller breasts or restoring breasts that might have lost volume. The primary aim of the breast enhancement surgery is to change shape or size of the breasts to make them look and feel better. 

Who needs Breast Augmentation?

Breast augmentation is for anyone who:

  • Has small breast size.
  • Wants to enlarge their current breast size.
  • Have asymmetrical breasts. 
  • Have sagging breasts due to breastfeeding. 
  • Have experienced drastic weight loss and have small breasts now.

Types of  Breast Implant Used For Augmentation Surgery?

We use 100% authentic micro-textured cohesive gel breast implants that have been US FDA-approved for safe breast surgery. 

 

Cohesive gel breast implants are preferred for breast augmentation surgery as they are very similar to real breasts in shape and touch, helping to create breasts that look and feel natural.

 

The breast size should only be decided after a precise diagnosis of the thoracic shape, the symmetry between the navel and breasts, and your body frame. Only when the above considerations are completed, should the size of the breast implant be decided upon.

Ergonomic
  • Adapts to the natural shape and position according to your natural movement. Round when in laying position and teardrop when in standing position.
  • Suitable for women of any frame and breast size
  • Implant suitable for placement above or below pectoral muscles
Teardrop
  • Mimics the natural shape the breast, give you the natural slope and contours. More mass at the bottom and lighter at the top.
  • Suitable for petite women who have little breast tissue.
  • Implant more suitable for placement below pectoral muscles
Round
  • Gives appearance of fuller cleavage
  • Recommended for women with some breast tissue to work with
  • Implant suitable for placement above or below pectoral muscles

Incision Site for Breast Augmentation

Incisions are hidden along natural crease lines or outlines or the areola to reduce visibility of scarring. We will discuss which incision options are appropriate for your desired outcome.

Armpit (Transaxillary) Incision
  • Incision is made along armpit crease.
  • No visible scar on the breast area.
  • Enables breast-feeding after the surgery as it does not damage the mammary glandular tissue.
Breast Fold (Inframammary) Incision
  • Incision made along the natural fold below breast.
  • Most common incision method.
  • Appropriate for inserting large implants.
  • Recommended for revision cases who need major correction.
Areola (Periareola) Incision
  • Incision made along line or the areola.
  • Method can only be used if the diameter of the areola is 3.5cm or more.
  • Scar is not obvious.
  • Minimal pain compared to other methods.
  • Easy to move arms after surgery.
  • Nipple sensation after surgery may be affected.

Implant Placement

Below Muscle – Sub-muscular Insertion

The implant is inserted under the pectoral muscle.

Benefits: 

  • This placement does not disturb breastfeeding.
  • Recommended for small breast where there is insufficient breast tissue to conceal the implant.
  • Does not affect mammogram as the implant is placed apart from the mammary glands.
  • Reduce nerve damage.
  • Low rate of capsular contracture.
Above Muscle – Sub-glandular  Insertion

The implant is inserted between the pectoral muscle and mammary gland tissue

Benefits:

  • Effective in lifting droopy breast
  • Recommended for those with sufficient breast tissue to conceal implant rims
