Breast augmentation Surgery (Augmentation Mammaplasty)

What is Breast augmentation?
Breast augmentation is a surgery in which implants are put under or over the pectoral muscle to enlarge a woman's breast size.. Continue below



At this point of time, it is the only proven way to enlarge the size of a woman's breasts.

In this surgery, the patient can select the size, shape, and texture of the implant. In some countries (and the US is not one of them), the patient can also select between silicone gel and saline implants.

What it takes?

There are many types of surgeries to put the implants in place. Press to read more on the procedures available. Depending on the procedure selected, the breast augmentation surgery can last from 1 to 2 hours. The doctor can use either local or general anesthesia.   

Usually the procedure is performed at a plastic surgery clinic and not at a hospital. 

The cost of the surgery depends on where you have the surgery and with whom. In large, expensive metropolitan areas such as New York or Los Angeles, it is more expensive than in inexpensive areas such as Nebraska. The general cost of living affects the cost of the surgery. Also, the prestige of the doctor affects the cost of the surgery and this is no place to look for bargains. Some plastic surgeons, who work with models and celebrities and get featured television and in the media, often charge higher fees for surgery. Read more on cost of breast augmentation surgery. 

What will be the expected results of the breast augmentation surgery?
Obviously you will get larger breasts. In most cases, you will have both larger and perkier breasts. The skin is stretched to fit the implants and the areola looks larger in some cases. Depending on the type, shape, and size of the implants selected, it may look natural or even Playboy-model like.

How large should you go?
Your doctor and you will determine what is the best size for you. Some aspects to consider are:

Your lifestyle. Do you need larger breasts? Some women might work as exotic dancers or models and they need large breast. But if you are a regular, busy mom, smaller sizes may be better. Same logic applies to a sporty person - large breasts may be an obstacle sometimes. 

Your personality. If you are having surgery, obviously you want large or larger breast. It is a long-life commitment, so you have to think about what you really want. This is your breast, not your boyfriend's, your mom's, your girlfriend's or your doctor's. This breast is going to be with you 24x7x365; in other words all the time. You will be the one buying bras and modeling your clothes. Since this is your breast, its size should be mostly your desired size. 

The breast size is somehow affected by fashion. In the 80s and 90s, very large breasts were in vogue; that is not the case right now. So be careful not to go only with the fashion standards of the time, because they change very often.

Cost of breast augmentation surgery in the US
The average cost of a breast augmentation procedure in the USA is from $5,000 to $7,000.
