How does breast augmentation work?

Breast augmentation is carried out using two main techniques; “implants placement” and “fat transfer” (which is the latest method for breast.)

Fat Transfer (fat grafting)

Fat transfer or fat grafting uses your own body fat to increase your breasts' size. Compared to breast implants, the procedure is safer, more natural, and leaves little to no scarring. With fat transfer, no needle, scalpel or even stitches are required. Just as with liposuction, the plastic surgeon makes two or three incisions that are only a few inches long. Long and narrow tubes are placed through these incisions to inject the fat. Fat transfer is the perfect option for women who wish to increase their breasts' size but don’t want their breasts to look "fake". Also, fat grafting uses your own body tissue and as a result, you are less likely to experience life-threatening complications. The following steps are what the procedure generally entails.

  • Local anesthesia
  • Extracting fat from other areas of the body (hips, belly, butt, or thighs)
  • Making small incisions on the breasts
  • Inserting the tube and injecting previously removed fat into the breasts

There is some point to mention; firstly, one of the major benefits of fat transfer is that by removing fat from areas such as belly, hips, thighs or arms and injecting it into the breasts, you will have a body shape that is closer to the ideal silhouette shape. Also, according to a study, fat transfer can be performed on underweight women (BMI≤18.5) as well as women with higher BMI. However, the volume of the injected fat will be significantly smaller. You should also keep in mind that fat transfer will increase your breast size to about a cup. For larger degrees of augmentation, you should go for breast implants.

Breast Implants

Breast implants surgery is probably the most common method of enhancing and augmenting breasts. A breast implant surgery is carried out under general anesthesia, takes about 60 to 90 minutes, and you won't need a hospital stay if you undergo the surgery earlier in the day. Moreover, a board-certified plastic surgeon will do her best to leave almost invisible scars that can be easily hidden under a bra.

Breast Augmentation vs. Breast Lift

While a breast augmentation primarily focuses on increasing the size and enhancing the shape of your bust, a breast lift benefits your breasts regarding a more upwards, youthful look and will treat drooping breasts. A breast lift involves making some incisions. Sometimes a breast lift can be performed in conjunction with breast augmentation to provide a satisfactory breast look; the procedure is known as mastopexy. 

Should I get a breast augmentation?

If you are unhappy with your breasts appearance and would like to enhance them, you may consider undergoing breast augmentation surgery. Breast augmentation procedures can address many issues in the breast:

  • Uneven breasts: when one breast is a different shape or size than the other.
  • Size of the breasts: underdeveloped or small breasts
  • Absence of breasts: women who have been subject to mastectomy or are on their male to female transition journey.

You are not a good candidate for boob job if you have an active infection in your body or have cancer that is not adequately treated. Your family history should also be checked regarding cancer-related medical conditions. Generally, you can get breast augmentation surgery if:

  • You are in overall good health
  • Your breasts are sufficiently developed (you are over 18-22 years old)
  • You are in a stable weight
  • You have finished breastfeeding for 3-6 months
