Breast augmentation, sometimes referred to as a “Boob job” by patients, involves using breast implants or fat transfer to increase the size of your breasts. Breast augmentation is also referred to as augmentation mammoplasty. Having proper shaped breasts not only enhances the bodily beauty of a woman but also boosts her confidence. Breast augmentation restores breast volume lost after weight reduction or pregnancy, achieve a more rounded breast shape or improve natural breast size asymmetry. Breast enlargement may help you to enhance your appearance if your breasts are too small or if one is smaller than the other. Breast enlargement surgery involves the insertion of breast implants into the breasts. These implants could be silicone implants, saline implants.
The other procedure for breast enlargement is Fat Grafting. This uses liposuction to take fat from other parts of your body and inject it into your breasts. This is an option for women who are looking for a relatively small increase in breast size and would prefer natural results.
You can consult your plastic surgeon at YOUNIQ regarding your preference of size, shape and feel of breast. Your surgeon will explain you about different varieties of implants you can choose from, which include smooth or textured; round or teardrop shaped, and saline or silicone.
Your surgeon will perform certain tests to detect any breast abnormality, which includes mammography.

After making an incision, pocket created behind or in front of the outermost muscle (the pectoral muscle) of the chest wall. Your surgeon will then insert the implant into the pocket and center it behind your nipple.
