Breast enlargement is a cosmetic surgical procedure performed to enhance, enlarge and create fuller shaped breasts.
What is breast enlargement surgery?
Breast enlargement surgery also called breast augmentation, breast enhancement or a ‘boob job‘ are all terms used to refer to breast surgery that involves inserting breast implants to make your breasts bigger and shapelier.
What are the benefits of a breast enlargement surgery?
The benefits of a breast enlargement are that it helps you to achieve the breast look you want. This may include: a larger cup size, a more curvaceous and uplifted breast-line, breasts more in proportion to your body, a symmetrical breast size and shape and, a more feminine overall body contour.
These breast changes can result in feeling better about your appearance, being able to wear clothes that you want and, an increase in self-assurance that passes through to your general wellbeing.
Breast reconstruction may be considered after a mastectomy to rebuild the breasts and help a woman feel more comfortable about how she looks.
What are does breast enlargement surgery involve?
You’ll be given a general anaesthetic before your breast enlargement surgery. The procedure will take about an hour and a half.
It involves making a small cut in the crease under your breast and inserting an implant directly behind your breast for the most natural look. If you do not have enough breast skin and tissue to cover the implant your surgeon may recommend placing the implant behind your pectoral muscle.
Once the implant is in place the incision is stitched.
