As women, we all have different goals when it comes to what we want our bodies to look like. For some, breast augmentation surgery is the way to achieve their desired look. In this article, we’ll discuss what types of breast augmentation surgery are available, who can have it, and the procedure involved. Read on to learn more about this life-changing procedure!
What is breast augmentation?
Breast augmentation is a cosmetic surgical procedure to augment or increase the size and shape of breasts. Breasts that have lost volume or are not proportionate may need breast augmentation. The breasts are augmented by inserting breast implants or fat transfer. Women who have breast augmentation feel more confident and pleased with themselves.
What are the different types of breast augmentation?
Breast augmentation surgery is done in two ways: First with breast implant and second with fat transfer.
Breast Implants are the most common type of surgery, and they come in two main shapes: round and teardrop.
- Round implants are the most popular type, as they create a full, natural look.
- Teardrop implants are less common, but they can create a more realistic look as wished by some women.
Fat transfer surgery enhances your breasts using your own body fat. This type of surgery is often used to correct asymmetry or to create a more natural look, usually suited for people who want a relatively small increase in their breast size.
The surgeon typically retrieves the fat tissue from your belly, lower back abdomen flanks, back or thighs.
Breast Augmentation procedure
Dr Rory guides and plans the breast augmentation surgery based on diagnostic tests, breast scans and the expected results. The operation or surgery proceeds with the following major steps.
Breast surgery is performed under anaesthesia via IV sedation. The sedation numbs the body to avoid any pain sensations during the surgery.
Breast augmentation incision will depend on the individual’s case. Your surgeon can perform breast augmentation with one of the following incision procedures:
- Via inframammary breast fold or the crease under your breast
- Along the areolar with the periareolar incision.
- Or through an incision from your armpit (with transaxilliary approach).
Your surgeon will discuss these possible methods with you before your surgery, and together you will determine which approach best suits your needs.
Depending on the implant and incision type, your selected implant will be inserted. The surgeon will check the placement of implants before closing the incisions with sutures.
Closing the incision
The surgeon will irrigate the incision with antiseptic liquid and close the incisions with dissolvable sutures. Your surgeon will place drainage tubes around the incisions to eject drains after surgery. The area is covered with a gauze bandage, and you may be sent home wearing a surgical bra. You will feel some pain, breast tenderness, and discomfort after surgery. The doctor will give you post-surgery instructions for aftercare and faster recovery from the surgery.
Who can have breast augmentation surgery?
Anyone who wants:
- To change their breast’s size, proportion or appearance

- To volumise breasts once again after losing the shape after breast feeding or significant weight loss.
- To correct sulking breasts due to ageing conditions.
- To improve self-esteem and confidence
