Typically known as a “boob job”, a breast augmentation involves the use of breast implants or fat transfer so as to increase the size of your breasts. In essence, this treatment enables an increase in breast volume, which may have been lost typically due to weightloss, age or pregnancy, thus improving the appearance and asymmetry of breasts.
Breast implants may also be used when it comes to reconstructing breasts after a mastectomy or injury.
Patients can expect an immediate increase in size, with the implant surroundings feeling firm. It takes bout 2-3 Months for implants to settle into a natural position and the surrounding tissue to soften.
