What is breast augmentation surgery?

Breast augmentation, sometimes referred to as a "breast aug" or "boob job" by patients, involves using breast implants or fat to increase the size of your breasts, to restore breast volume lost after weight reduction or pregnancy, to achieve a more rounded shape, or to improve natural breast size asymmetry.

Breast Augmentation Before & After Photos

Breast augmentation is also referred to as augmentation mammaplasty. When fat is used from volume, the procedure is referred to as fat transfer breast augmentation.

Breast augmentation can:

  • Increase fullness and projection of your breasts
  • Improve balance of breast and hip contours
  • Enhance your self-image and self-confidence

Breast implants may also be used for breast reconstruction after mastectomy or injury.

What breast augmentation surgery won't do

Breast augmentation does not correct severely drooping breasts. A breast lift may be required along with a breast augmentation for sagging breasts to look fuller and lifted.

Breast lifting can often be done at the same time as your augmentation or may require a separate operation. Your plastic surgeon will assist you in making this decision.
