Breast augmentation (or enlargement) is considered by women from all walks of life, and at all ages. This is one of the most popular breast enhancement cosmetic procedures. The surgery recommended will differ for each individual. The procedure will take into account the shape, weight and size of the person considering the operation. Breast augmentation can give women the fullness and increased firmness to give the desired appearance.
Breast asymmetry is a factor in MOST cases. This is sometimes due to loss of volume after childbirth, weight gain or loss, size of ribcages, and genetics. Sometimes a breast "lift" (mastopexy) is also advisable to give the best result.
There is a choice of either saline or silicone gel breast implants. Educational material is always provided to our patients to assist in making a sound and informed decision about breast enhancements.
