Achieving a symmetrical body contour has become a safe reality for those who want to “correct” certain undesirable features. For women seeking to improve their breasts’ symmetry or restore their volume post weight loss, pregnancy, or breast cancer surgery, breast augmentation is the answer. Alternatively, women who desire to reduce the size of their breasts can opt for breast reduction. These two procedures help women improve their body shape and feminine charm.

Let’s discuss both of these procedures in detail.
What is Breast Augmentation?
Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure used to increase the size or alter the shape of your breasts using breast implants. It is the third most common procedure following liposuction and tummy tucks in the UAE. The primary aim of this procedure is to improve the overall symmetry and contour of breasts. You can also increase the fullness and projection of your breasts with breast augmentation.
What are the types of implants used?
Two types of breast implants are commonly inserted during breast augmentation surgery:
- Saline: saline breast implants are filled with sterile salt water (saline). They provide a uniform shape and firmness and are suitable for women who are 18 or older.
- Silicone: silicone breast implants are filled with a silicone gel that feels like natural breast tissue. They are suitable for women who are 22 or older.
How is breast augmentation surgery performed?
The surgery can be done with local anesthesia or general anesthesia. Once the incision is made, the surgeon creates a pocket into which the implant is inserted. The incision is made either on the breast folds, underneath the breast, or near the armpit. Silicone implants are inserted pre-filled, while saline implants are filled with saline solution after insertion.
Once the surgery is over, the patient can leave for the home the next day. However, the pain can be severe in the days to follow and will require appropriate medication.
Is breast augmentation possible through fat transfer?
Yes, fat transfer is an option for women looking for just a small increase in breast size and prefer more natural-looking results. Fat transfer breast augmentation uses liposuction to extract fat from other parts of your body and inject it into your breasts.
What is Breast Reduction?
Many women also look to reduce or reshape the size of their breasts. With Breast Reduction Surgery, also known as Reduction Mammoplasty, the extra tissues from your breasts are removed, and the volume is reduced.
Breast reduction surgery is suitable for those women who want to resolve issues such as:
- Chronic back, neck, and shoulder pain
- Skin irritation under the breasts
- Marks left on the shoulders from bra strap pressure
- Difficulty sleeping
- General discomfort during physical activity
