About the procedure
A boob job or breast augmentation is an operation to increase the size of the breasts with artificial inserts. A qualified surgeon opens up the breast tissue and places saline or silicone-filled implants behind each breast to increase bust size while ensuring correct positioning. Usually, breasts are measured by cup size, but implants for boob jobs are measured by density, so surgeons use cubic centimetres. A 300cc breast implant weighs around 300 grams. If eligible, modern medicine now enables surgeons to transfer the patient’s own fat into the breast area instead of using implants.

A mastectomy is the removal of breasts due to breast cancer. Breast reconstruction encompasses different types of operations but the most common reconstructions are breast augmentation or implants.
Breast Lift (Mastopexy)
A breast lift, or mastopexy, is a surgical procedure to elevate the breasts to a higher position on the chest. As we age, skin loses its elasticity which causes breasts to droop and sag. Pregnancy and breastfeeding can also cause breasts to change from plump and round to tubular and long.
