Many patients desiring breast augmentation report having wanted breast augmentation for many years; sometimes their whole lives. Some patients were larger in size when they were younger and after kids or after weight loss, they have lost volume.  They will say having the procedure boosts their self-confidence; they feel more normal, not deformed.  Broadly, breast augmentation can be performed with implants or with fat grafting.  Breast implants offer a guarantee increase in cup size; fat grafting the volume increase is less uncertain. There are benefits and drawbacks of each technique. 

The procedure is typically performed at an outpatient surgery center. Most patients have the surgery on a Friday and are back to work on the following Wednesday (6 days off). Exercise is limited for 4 weeks and swimming is limited to 6 weeks after the procedure.
