Why you opt for Breast Augmentation surgery? 

Breast Augmentation surgery can help you to:

  • Increase breast size if you feel that they are too small.
  • Make breasts more balanced if one breast is smaller than the other.
  • Alter the breast’s shape in case their size reduces after pregnancy or weight loss.
  • Retrieve the breast shape after a surgery such as a tumor resection.

Keep in mind that Breast Augmentation surgery cannot improve the drooping breast problem. Breast lifting procedure is the solution to this matter. However, both breast enlargement and breast lifting could be performed at the same time.

Discuss with your surgeon the desired result and know whether Breast Augmentation surgery works well for you or not.

Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation 

Fat transfer breast augmentation is an alternative to breast enlargement by implants. It is a cosmetic procedure used to remove excess fat from a specific area in the body and inject it into the breast.

Fat transfer for breasts is becoming quite popular as most women look to enhance their chest subtilty’s natural shape and size. Fat transfer is one of the best choices since it only uses fat cells from the woman’s body.

The best part about the fat transfer breast augmentation is that it can be used with or without other breast implants depending on an individual and improves the breast’s look and feel. It not only grants you natural and beautiful results but also helps boost your self-confidence significantly.

How does fat transfer breast augmentation work?

The beginning step in fat transfer breast augmentation is to collect fat cells from the donor area, usually the abdominal area, via liposuction. The fat is melted to produce a smoother profile. The fat cells are then placed skillfully under the skin through small tunnels.

Breast Augmentation surgery techniques

Surgeons choose which technique will use for this process depending on the patient’s condition and the required result.
According to the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery, there are four main techniques as following:

1. Inframammary

In this procedure, the surgeon makes a small incision in the inframammary fold under the breast.

This technique characterizes that the made incision lets the surgeon access a more in-depth point and insert the implant accurately.
Furthermore, the incision will be hidden under the breast, so it will not be visible.


In this procedure, the surgeon makes a small incision near the outer edge surrounding the nipple.

The feature of this technique that the incision will be hidden with the natural color of the areola.


In this procedure, the surgeon makes a small incision under the armpit, then he/she will insert the implant using specialized equipment and a camera to ensure the right position.

A small scar will be visible under the armpit. However, the breasts will be scar-free.


In this procedure, the surgeon makes a small incision above the navel to insert the implant. This technique leaves a small scar in the navel area, while the breast area will stay pure.

Breast implants types

Mainly, there are two types of breast implants:

1.Saline-filled implants

Saline-filled implants are filled with sterilized salt water, which held in an elastic silicone shell. A saline solution may leak. No worries, the body will absorb the solution and expel it. This type is appropriate for women age 18 and older.

2.Silicone-filled implants

Silicone-filled implants are filled with silicone gel, which held in a silicone outer shell. If a silicone implant leaks, the gel may stay in the shell or escape into the breast implant pocket. If you choose this type of implants, you need to visit your surgeon regularly to check the status of the implant.

An ultrasound or MRI can check the breast implants’ condition. This type is appropriate for women age 22 and older. There are many types of silicone implants. The most popular one is Gummy Bear Implants or known as Form-stable implants.

Gummy Bear Implants are also filled with silicone gel, which held in a silicone outer shell.

Gummy Bear Implants give the breast a more natural look than the other types of implants, but the incision in this type will be bigger.
This type is not suitable for women under age 22.

How long do the breast implants last? 

Breast implants have no expiry date. However, they do not last a lifetime. In general, breast implants last from 10 to 15 years.
In some cases, the surgeon may request to remove the implants after ten years for medical or cosmetic concerns.
