Breast augmentation or Augmentation Mammoplasty also referred as to as a “Breast Aug” or “Boob job” by patients, is a surgical procedure to increase the size of your breasts using either breast implants or your own body fat. The procedure can also restore breast volume lost after weight reduction or pregnancy, can achieve a more rounded breast shape, or can improve natural breast size asymmetry.
What you can expect from Breast Augmentation?
- Increase fullness and projection of your breasts
- Improve the balance of breast and hip contours
- Enhance your self-image and self-confidence
What you should not expect from breast augmentation?
Breast augmentation does not correct moderate to severely drooping breasts. A breast lift may be required along with a breast augmentation for sagging breasts to look fuller and lifted either at the same time or as a separate procedure.
Choosing a plastic surgeon:
When choosing a board-certified plastic surgeon for breast augmentation, remember that the surgeon’s experience and your comfort with him or her are just as important as the final cost of the surgery.
