Why have Breast Enlargement Operations?
Every woman is special in her own way and similarly the reasons for having a breast enlargement surgery differs in all. The most common reasons why you may choose to enlarge your breasts include:
Breasts implant surgery is contraindicated in women with untreated breast cancer or pre-malignant breast disorders, active infection anywhere in the body, or individuals who are currently pregnant or nursing. Individuals with a weakened immune system (currently receiving chemotherapy or drugs to suppress the immune system), conditions that interfere with blood clotting or wound healing or have reduced blood supply to the breast tissue from prior surgery or radiation therapy treatments may be at higher risk for complications and poor surgical outcomes. A woman must be at least 18 years of age for cosmetic breast augmentation.
Medications are administered for your comfort during the surgical procedure. The breast augmentation surgery is done under general anesthesia. Your anesthesia will be explained during or after your consultation with the surgeons and also after the results of your pre-operative check.
Incisions are made in inconspicuous areas to minimize visible scarring. You and your plastic surgeon will discuss which incision options are appropriate for your desired outcome. There are 3 main incision options;

Also known as mammoplasty, the procedure involves placing an artificial implant either under your breast tissue, or under your chest muscle behind your breast. We use only FDA approved breast implants.
Overly large breasts can cause some women to have both health and emotional problems. In addition to self image issues, you may also experience physical pain and discomfort. The weight of excess breast tissue can impair your ability to lead an active life. Also known as reduction mammoplasty, this procedure removes excess breast fat, glandular tissue and skin to achieve a breast size in proportion with your body and to alleviate the discomfort associated with overly large breasts
A breast lift, also known as mastopexy, is a surgical process that involves raising the breasts by the removal of excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue to reshape and support the new breast contour. Sometimes when the nipple becomes enlarged over time, a breast lift surgery will address this issue as well, for women with breasts that have lost their youthful shape and firmness due to changes and loss of skin elasticity resulting from pregnancy, breastfeeding, ageing, gravity, etc.
Therefore, the realignment and reconstruction of the nipple and breast to correct loose breast tissues that are compressed and compacted to produce firm, perky, great-looking breasts can be achieved through our expert surgeons at Beverly Wilshire here in Kuala Lumpur.
