What is A Breast Augmentation?
Breast augmentation is a cosmetic procedure to increase breast size and enhance breast shape, typically through the placement of silicone or saline breast implants. The ultimate goal is to enhance a woman’s natural proportions and create a more symmetrical, aesthetically pleasing breast profile.
Breast augmentation might help you:
- Enhance your appearance if you think your breasts are small or that one is smaller than the other.
- Adjust for a reduction in the size of your breasts after pregnancy or significant weight loss
- Improve your self-confidence
Discuss your goals with your cosmetic surgeon so that you can fully understand what breast augmentation can do for you.
Types Of Breast Augmentation

Saline, Silicone Gel, or Highly Cohesive Silicone “Gummy Bear” Implants. There are some differences in cost, feel, and incision requirements that you will want discuss with your cosmetic surgeon.
Saline & Silicone Gel implants are generally round, while gummy bear implants have shaped options. Round implants usually achieve a fuller upper breast, while shaped implants can achieve more of a sloping profile.

You may wonder, “Will there be scars and what will they look like?” Generally breast augmentation incisions are easily hidden and often not readily visible. The cosmetic surgeon will generally use one of these incision techniques:
A small incision in the crease beneath the breast, the inframammary fold. Typically a 1 to 2 inch scar that is concealed in the crease.
This incision is around the outer edge of the nipple, so the resulting scar is border of the pigmented nipple and the breast skin.
This is a small incision made in the armpit. This leaves a small scar in the armpit but no scar on the breast itself.
This is an incision just above the belly button and the implant is inserted up under the skin to the breast with no scar on the breast.
