Schedule A Consultation


Breast augmentation, also known as augmentation mammoplasty, is a surgical procedure to increase the size and/or reshape the breasts. It can be performed for cosmetic reasons, to achieve a desired breast size or appearance, or for reconstructive purposes, following mastectomy (breast removal) or other breast surgeries. There are two main methods for augmentation: 

  • Implants: Silicone or saline-filled implants are inserted behind the breast tissue or chest muscle to create volume.
  • Fat Transfer: Liposuction removes unwanted fat from another area of the body, which is then processed and injected into the breasts for a more natural-looking enhancement.


  • Increased breast size and fullness
  • Improved breast shape and symmetry
  • Enhanced body proportions and self-confidence (for cosmetic procedures)


  • Surgical procedure with potential risks like infection, bleeding, or implant rupture.
  • Requires recovery time with restrictions on activity.
  • Long-term effects on breastfeeding may exist.
  • Not a permanent solution; additional procedures may be needed over time.


  • Breast lift: Surgery to address sagging breasts without increasing size.
  • Exercise and diet: Can help improve breast tone and firmness, but won’t significantly increase volume.

Recovery Time

  • Typically 1-2 weeks for initial healing.
  • Full recovery with minimal restrictions can take several weeks.
  • Strenuous activity should be avoided for a period determined by the surgeon.
