What is a Breast Augmentation or “Implants”?

Breast augmentation is the surgical placement of breast implants to increase fullness and projection of the breasts or to improve symmetry of the breasts. Clinically referred to as augmentation mammaplasty, the procedure is used cosmetically to:

  • Enlarge a naturally small breast, most commonly the result of heredity
  • Restore breast volume lost following pregnancy, as a result of breast-feeding or due to weight loss
  • Achieve better symmetry when breasts are moderately disproportionate in size and shape

Breast augmentation does not however correct sagging breasts. In cases where a woman desires to enhance breast fullness and at the same time improve the position and shape of sagging breasts, a breast lift may be performed in conjunction with breast augmentation.

Breast augmentation is a highly individualized procedure — one that you should choose to undergo to fulfill your own desire for enhanced breast size, not the desire of others. Permanent breast enhancement can only be achieved surgically. There is currently no medical treatment of any kind for breast enhancement with the proven results and satisfaction of breast augmentation.

Adult women of any age can benefit from breast augmentation to enhance small breast size or restore fullness. However, it is recommended that breasts be fully developed prior to breast augmentation. You should also be aware that breast augmentation does not generally interfere with a woman’s ability to breastfeed.

A woman who is motivated by her own personal desire to enhance breast contour is most likely to be satisfied with the results of breast augmentation surgery. Good candidates are defined as:

  • Healthy individuals who do not have a life-threatening illness or medical conditions that can impair healing.
  • Non-smokers
  • Individuals with a positive outlook and specific goals in mind for improving their body image.

Breast augmentation or augmentation mammoplasty is an optional, cosmetic procedure that is used to increase the size of the breasts for added aesthetic appeal. This surgery can be performed to provide a modest, inconspicuous increase or dramatic change depending upon the preference of the patient. Many women opt to undergo breast augmentation due to naturally small breasts, while others do so following the birth of a child or substantial weight loss. This procedure can help to restore volume to sagging and deflated breasts especially as they result from prolonged breastfeeding, age and dieting and weight loss.

During this procedure saline or silicone implants, sized according to the patient’s choosing, are placed beneath the chest muscle to create the illusion of fuller, larger breasts. Saline implants are silicone shells that are filled with a sterile saline solution. Silicone implants are also constructed from silicone shells, however, these are instead filled with a plastic silicone gel. Silicone implants are reputed to be more natural in appearance and feel, however, there is a greater health risk posed by their contents when a bag becomes ruptured. Conversely, if saline implants rupture the basic contents are simply absorbed and processed by the body. Presently, the FDA allows the legal of sale of two brands of silicone implants, both of which have been deemed safe for use in breast augmentation procedure.
