Breasts that are proportionate and symmetrical are the most appealing. However, many women have breasts that are unusually tiny, uneven, or disproportionate. As a result, they lack self-confidence and have a sense of self-consciousness about their appearance. If you are not comfortable with the size and inappropriateness of your breasts, you can choose to undergo breast augmentation to improve the shape and increase the size of your breasts.
At Advanced Plastic Surgery Center, Dr. Talal Munasifi and the team offer consultations and surgeries to give the bust you desire. Contact them today to discuss the basics of your situation with a breast augmentation specialist.
What Is Breast Augmentation?
Breast augmentation is also referred to as breast implant surgery. It is a surgical procedure for enhancing the shape and size of your breasts. The procedure involves placing breast implants under the breast or chest muscles.
Types of Breast Implants
There are two types of breast implants, silicone and saline implants.
- Silicone Implants- They are made of a silicone outer shell filled with a soft silicone gel that feels most natural. If the implant ruptures, the gel remains in the outer shell or flows to the small pocket between your breast muscles.
- Saline Implants- They have a silicone-based outer shell and are filled with sterile saline water. These implants retain their shapes firmly, and they give a natural outlook to your breasts.
Why Breast Augmentation?
Breast augmentation is beneficial in several ways, which include:
- It increases the fullness and projection of your breasts.
- It enhances your self-image and self-confidence.
- Improves the balance of your breast and hip contours.
- Improves your overall appearance.
Who Can Undergo Breast Augmentation?
An ideal candidate for breast augmentation surgery should be an adult who is:
- Physically healthy overall.
- Has under-developed breasts.
- A non-smoker and if a smoker is willing to quit smoking.
- Not pregnant or breastfeeding.
- Unhappy with her overall appearance and symmetry of their breasts.
- Has unrealistic and practical expectations from the surgery.
- She has lost her breast volume due to weight loss, pregnancy, or breastfeeding.
- She wants to change the size of her breasts.
What Is the Procedure for Conducting Breast Augmentation?
Breast augmentation is an outpatient treatment that is performed under general anesthesia. To form a pocket, the surgeon raises the breast tissue and skin through the incision, either precisely below the breast tissue or beneath the pectoral muscle in the chest wall. The implants are centered under the nipples.

Before you need to have breast surgery, you should consider and take into account some of the following issues:
