Breast Augmentation / Breast Enhancement / Breast Implants

image image

Breast augmentation can create beautiful breasts for women who are unhappy with the size and shape of their breasts. It is a procedure that makes women feel more feminine and attractive, creating breasts uniquely sized to complement their frame.

Breast augmentation is the surgical enhancement of the breasts using implants. The implants are usually filled with either silicone or saline and are available in various sizes, shapes, and textures. Some are round, while others are teardrop shaped. Successful breast augmentation depends on choosing implants that best fit you.

Breast Augmentation Surgery

The incision for breast augmentation can be made along the areola, in the armpit, or below the breast. The incision’s location is one factor that should be discussed with your plastic surgeon before the procedure. In cases where there is significantly droopy of the breasts, a breast lift may be done with breast enhancement.

Placement of Breast Implants

The placement of the breast implants will depend on a few factors, such as:

  • patient’s individual preference
  • patient’s lifestyle
  • patient’s amount of breast tissue and how thin their skin is, especially on the upper portion of the breast/upper pole. Those who are skinny or bony around the chest, the edges of the breast implants may be visible.

Who Is Suitable to Have a Breast Augmentation Procedure In Singapore?

Breast enhancement is recommended for women with disproportionately small breasts or asymmetrical breasts. Also, women whose breasts have become deflated due to the changes associated with childbirth and breastfeeding are good candidates. In addition, women that have undergone a mastectomy can consider breast augmentation as a method of breast reconstruction.

Women contemplating breast augmentation should be healthy individuals with realistic expectations about surgical outcomes.

Did You Know These Breast Implants Come in Different Projections, Shapes, and Sizes?

Projections mean the forward projection profile of the breast implant, such as:

  • low profile
  • mid-profile
  • high profile
  • extra-high profile

Implant shapes generally come in a round shape or anatomical shape.

Besides being a round or anatomical-shaped implant, the base of the implants, the height of the implants, and the projection of the implants are different.

Size & Projections of Breast Implants

For most brands, the size ranges from 150 cc to 600 cc. Should there be any case where we need to have smaller than 150 cc or bigger than 600 cc, we have to special order the implants.

With these many different projections, shapes, and sizes, more than 9 to 12 different models of breast implants are available in the market, depending on the brands.

With more than 30 years of experience handling breast implants, Dr Marco tailors all his cases depending on the patient’s body type. It doesn’t matter if it’s for breast augmentation or breast reconstruction, he always tries to understand the patient’s desire and what is possible to be done, and he will try his best to tailor and customize the surgery.

Dr Marco commented that he is very meticulous when it comes to the choice of implants. He doesn’t believe that there is such thing as one brand and type of breast implant that suits everyone.

He always discusses with the patient the choices available and what is best. If the chosen implants are unavailable due to stock availability, they will be specially ordered, which may delay the surgery date. But these are the extra miles Dr Marco does for all his patients.

Some Details When Choosing the Breast Implants:

  • chest broadness
  • location of the nipple-areola
  • the distance between the nipple to the collarbone
  • the breast size


And if one has a long thin chest, a short square chest, or in between, any breast asymmetry, Dr Marco will always check the dimensions and choose the right implant to give the best results. He makes sure to understand the patient’s personality and lifestyle.

What is the breast augmentation surgery like & what is the downtime?

The surgery is performed under general anaesthesia in the Day Surgery Theatre and will usually take around 1 1/2 hrs, depending on each case’s complexity. Two drains will be placed on you for the next 24 to 72 hrs. There may be some light swelling and discomfort, for which you will be prescribed medication.

You can go home the same day if you feel well. An overnight stay is also recommended for patients who may take a while to recover from anaesthesia.

The drains and stitches will be removed in a few days, and you are advised to resume exercise only aftertwo2 weeks after your surgery (it will also depend on the individual recovery progress).

What kind of bra do I have to wear after my surgery?

Dr Marco & his staff will advise you privately after your surgery on what type of bra to purchase and wear.

What is the cost of a breast augmentation surgery?

The cost will depend on a few factors, such as:

  • Doctor’s professional fees depend on the individual case complexity.
  • The cost of breast implants will also depend on the brands and types used.
  • The cost from the Day Surgery facilities in the hospital and anaesthetist.

Our staff will advise you on the final price individually.
