Breast Augmentation

Augmentation Mammaplasty

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, restore breast volume, achieve a more rounded shape, or improve natural breast size asymmetry.

Breast augmentation candidates

A breast augmentation is a deeply personal procedure, and it's important that you're doing it for yourself and not for someone else, even if that person has offered to pay for it.you Patient satisfaction is high specifically when they want the procedure themselves.

You may be a candidate for breast augmentation surgery if:

  • You are physically healthy and you aren't pregnant or breastfeeding
  • You have realistic expectations
  • Your breasts are fully developed
  • You are bothered by the feeling that your breasts are too small
  • You are dissatisfied with your breasts losing shape and volume after pregnancy, weight loss, or with aging
  • You are unhappy with the upper part of your breast appearing "empty"
  • Your breasts are asymmetrical
  • One or both breasts failed to develop normally or have an elongated shape

If you're considering surgery, spend some time reviewing breast augmentation photos and learning about what to expect during recovery. Preparation ahead of time helps patients have reasonable expectations and a smoother recovery.
