Breast Augmentation or Enlargement
by Dr. Hauw Han

Breast enlargement surgery uses an implant to enlarge or shape the breast. Several reasons for undergoing this procedure include:

  • A desire for larger breasts to reduce self-consciousness.
  • A more proportionate ratio of breast size to body size.
  • A desire for clothing and swimsuits to fit better.
  • To correct Breast Asymmetry — one breast is larger than the other.
  • Breast firmness and size has diminished after childbirth and due to aging.

    Women choose this procedure to improve their self-image and confidence. Many women find that Breast Augmentation also provides greater freedom with current fashions.

    Although there are several ways to perform this procedure, Dr. Han prefers to make the incision in the armpits and places the implant under the muscle. This auxiliary approach provides for the most inconspicuous scar. The placement of the implant under the muscle in this procedure decreases the risks of hardness of the breast, rippling, provides more cushion and support and less interference with mammography.
