Natural-looking breast enhancement can create greater self-assurance and poise.

Fuller breasts, breasts with better shape, size and balance, restoration of breasts after giving birth – there are many reasons why women want breast augmentation surgery, but the objectives are always similar – to enjoy their desired self-image, and to be more self-assured in their daily lives.

Breast Augmentation

With advancements in surgical techniques, most breast augmentation can be completed in under two hours and post-operative recovery takes only about two to three days. The techniques have also become much more accurate in achieving the desired profile.

Dr Leo Kah Woon, Consultant Plastic Surgeon at Dr Leo Aesthetic Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, has performed numerous breast augmentations for women of different races and ages.

He reveals that’s in Singapore the most common methods are implants and fat transfer. For implant augmentation, saline and silicone implants are usually used, with silicone preferred, as it feels more natural. Incisions can be at the armpits, areola or the inframammary folds, and the implants placed either above or below the pectoralis major muscle, depending on how much breast tissue the patient has.

Breast augmentation

An alternative is fat grafting. Fat is harvested from either the abdomen or thighs and processed to concentrate the fat and stem cells. In a session, usually 100-300cc of that is injected into the breasts, allowing for about one bra cup increase in size. Survival of the fat cells determines the sustainability of the augmentation, and that is highly dependent on the experience and skill of the surgeon.

In some patients, breast augmentation can be further combined with a breast lift or nipple areola reduction to create the breast and nipple shape desire.
