What is the Procedure and Cost of Breast Augmentation?

by Dr Rajat Gupta - RG Aesthetics Cosmetic Plastic Surgeon

Breast augmentation or enhancement is one of the most popular plastic surgeries today. Sometimes combined with a breast lift, it helps women who are dissatisfied with their small breasts and desire bigger breasts.

How is breast augmentation done?

Breast augmentation is either done through fat grafting or implants. In fat grafting, fat is removed from one part of your body through liposuction and inserted into your breasts.


There are three kinds of implants:

  • Smooth Implants

  • Nano-textured Implants

  • Textured Implants

Smooth implants are typically used for more natural results.

Placing the Implants

Implants are usually placed through 3 kinds of incisions:

  • Trans-axillary incision: Under the armpit.

  • Periareolar incision: Around the areola.

  • Inframammary incision: The underside of the breast. 

The inframammary incision is the most popular of these.

The Placement Plane

The third aspect to keep in mind is where the implant goes. There are two planes:

  • SubfascialPlane Technique: Between the breast tissue and the pectoral muscle.

  • Dual-plane Technique: Behind the pectoral muscle.

The dual-plane technique offers better results.

The Cost of Breast Augmentation

A lot of times, choosing the more sophisticated techniques results in a higher price. But compromising on quality due to cost has its problems:

Low-Quality Results

Your surgeon and their expertise determine the results you get. You get a guarantee of higher-quality, more natural-looking results from a board-certified surgeon who is well-versed in the necessary techniques. 

Choosing someone well-reputed and who adheres to a high standard of patient care may seem expensive immediately but saves you a lot of money in the long run. 

Unsatisfactory Infrastructure

Compromising on quality also means having an ill-equipped centre. A good centre with the necessary infrastructure gives your surgeon the tools they need to perform the best procedure possible. 

If the centre cannot give the surgeon what they need, they may resort to traditional, more primitive methods. Therefore, the centre matters a lot – again, it increases your cost, but it is worth it!

No Sophisticated Technique

Whether you put a bad surgeon with a good centre; a good surgeon with a lousy centre; or a bad surgeon with a bad centre, the ultimate problem boils down to technique. You need to be aware of what technique does the surgeon uses and whether the centre has the equipment for it. 

You need a surgeon who understands the most modern and effective methods and knows how to use the tools at their disposal correctly so that you get the best, most natural results. Even if it means paying a little more than planned, being happy in your body is always worth it!
