Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure to enhance the size of the breasts. Also known as augmentation mammoplasty, breast enlargement, or a “boob job,” this procedure involves the insertion of silicone or saline implants into the chest, with the overall goal of increasing the breast size. A frequent choice of women who feel that their breasts are too small for their figure, breast augmentation is the most popular cosmetic surgery procedure performed in the United States today.
Is Breast Augmentation Right for Me?
Breast augmentation is intended for adult women who are in good overall health and are unhappy with the current size or shape of their breasts. Although it is possible to perform breast augmentation on teens, most are advised to wait until they are adults, as the breasts may still be growing. Breast augmentation is also a popular choice to increase breast volume following pregnancy, significant weight loss, or aging, all of which can cause the breasts to lose volume or sag. While typically chosen for cosmetic reasons, breast augmentation is also available following a mastectomy or during sex reassignment surgery.

The first major step of breast augmentation is selecting the right type, size, and shape of breast implants. Your surgeon will discuss these choices with you before scheduling your surgery. There are pros and cons of both saline and silicone breast implants. It is alsoimportant to choose the right implant size to achieve your desired breast size and shape. Many patients find it helpful to view breast augmentation before and after photos when determining the right implants for their procedure.
The implantation procedure uses general anesthesia and takes about two hours. First, the surgeon creates incisions one to three inches long, usually in the armpit, belly button, or skin fold under the breasts or around the areola. The incision size can vary depending on the type and size of implant being used. The implants are then positioned in the chest, either above or below the chest muscle. Once the surgeon has moved them to a natural position, sutures are used to hold the incisions closed.
Recovery After Breast Augmentation Surgery
After breast enlargement, most patients take about a week away from work, although strenuous exercise should be avoided for six weeks.
During the recovery period, you can expect the following:
- Discomfort or soreness
It is important to wear surgical dressings as required by the surgeon to minimize these symptoms.It is important for patients to understand that breast implants are not meant to be permanent. After ten to twenty years, the implant will need to be replaced. In addition, some women choose to undergo revision surgeries to further enhance the appearance of the breasts as they continue to age naturally.
