Breasts are a symbol of feminine beauty and grace. Having perfectly shaped and proportionate breasts boost a woman’s self-esteem and make her even more confident. However, not everyone is blessed by nature with large, alluring breasts.
Some women are born with perfectly curvy breasts whereas women with small breasts or even asymmetrical breasts face constant pressure to look a certain way, have a more aesthetic body, and have more appealing curves to be feminine, attractive, and confident which may lead to self-image issues, emotional distress, low self-esteem, and other such issues in everyday life. In today’s digital world, where media is on a roll, all the content of what you should do, how you should look, what are the new trends & standards of the perfect body are targeted towards consumers with such strategy and convenience of one-click that it has created distress among women and teenage girls.
In such distress and desperation, many women seek out easy fixes like breast enlargement cream, breast enlargement pills, or estrogen pills for breast enlargement .
Do breast enlargement cream, breast enlargement pills, estrogen pills for breast enlargement, and other such solutions even work?
Many women and teenage girls buy into these narratives of body goals, perfect bodies, and to take advantage of their insecurities, an increasing number of brands are promoting easy fixes called breast enhancement products like breast enlargement cream, breast enlargement pills, or estrogen pills for breast enlargement.

Breast Augmentation Surgery?
Breast augmentation surgery which goes by names like breast enlargement surgery, boob job, breast implant surgery, fat transfer breast augmentation etc. is a process that helps to correct the issue of having smaller breasts due to any reason and achieve larger and proportionate breasts through the help of either fat grafting method or breast implants (saline implants or silicone implants).
First, let’s get to know the reasons why a woman might need breast augmentation surgery. Here are the reasons stated by Dr. Santosh Bhatia of Vanity Cosmetic Clinic in Mumbai:
an ideal candidate for breast augmentation surgery
Dr. Santosh Bhatia has listed down certain conditions that make a woman an ideal candidate for breast enlargement surgery or breast augmentation surgery. If you fit into the criteria, then you are definitely an ideal candidate for breast implant surgery or fat transfer breast augmentation:
Please note that getting breast augmentation surgery done is not a good idea if you are succumbing to peer or societal pressure. Undergoing breast enlargement surgery should be a well-thought decision that you make for yourself.
the different types of breast augmentation surgery?
Breast augmentation surgery/ breast enlargement surgery, as mentioned earlier, is done via two different methods – 1. Breast implant surgery 2. Breast augmentation with fat grafting or fat transfer breast augmentation.
- Breast Implant Surgery: In this method, breast implants are used to enhance the size and shape of breasts and achieve the desired result. In the case of breast implants, they are further divided into silicone implants and saline implants.
- Silicone Implants: Silicone implants are commonly used in breast augmentation surgery or breast implant surgery all over the world. The gel used in these implants is cohesive which makes them safe and matches the feel of natural breast tissues. These implants are further divided into round and anatomical (tear-drop) shapes and are available in varied sizes.
- Saline Implants: Saline implants contain sterile salt water. These saline implants can be either pre-filled or filled after inserting them into the breasts.
Whether to undergo breast implant surgery or fat grafting or fat transfer breast augmentation as well as the type, size, and texture of breast implants in case of breast implant surgery is decided during the consultation.
In the case of fat grafting or fat transfer breast augmentation, fat extracted from one’s own body through liposuction is used to inject into the breasts. As the fat used belongs to the patient’s body, it is absolutely safe and easily accepted by the body. However in breast augmentation surgery through fat grafting, the increase in size is not as much as in breast implant surgery.
How Much Do Breast Implants Cost?
Breast implants cost is not covered by health insurance unless they are proved medically significant. Breast implants cost depends on the type and quality of the implant.
At Vanity Cosmetic Clinic, Mumbai, we use high-quality silicone and saline implants from Motiva and Sebbin. These implants not only look good but also provide a comfortable user experience as these breast implants are created to meet the individual needs of each patient and for personalized results. These implants are available in an extensive range of different sizes, shapes, and projections. The cost of these implants depends on their type, size, and texture.

how is the
breast augmentation surgery procedure performed at vanity cosmetic clinic?
The breast augmentation surgery procedure in case of breast augmentation surgery through implants or breast implant surgery is as follows :
- Before the actual breast augmentation surgery procedure, the position of the incision will be discussed by Dr. Bhatia as the next step after administering general anesthesia is to make an incision.
- The three places where an incision can be made for a breast augmentation surgery procedure are – the areolar curve (beneath the nipples), the inframammary fold (the area beneath the fold of the breasts), and the axillary area (the armpits).
- Once the incision is made, the implants will be placed directly under the pectoral muscle or behind the breast tissue.
- The incision, the type of breast implant (saline implants/silicone implants), and the position of the implant will be unique to each patient and will vary in each breast augmentation surgery procedure. Since every patient has different needs and expects different results from the surgery.
- Once the placement is done, the surgeon will close the incision with sutures, skin adhesive, and surgical tape.
- In the case of saline implants, the incisions can be very small as these implants can be filled after their insertion into the breasts.
- After the placement of the implants, the incisions are closed with stitches.
- A breast augmentation surgery procedure is performed on an outpatient basis. That is, one does not need to stay overnight at the hospital.
- Breast implant surgery is generally performed under general anesthesia and takes about an hour.
In case of fat grafting or fat transfer breast augmentation:
In this process of fat grafting, fat is extracted through a liposuction cannula from flanks, abdomen, thighs or wherever there seems to be excessive fat. The fat is then processed in a certain manner and then injected into the breast according to the need. This process gives natural-looking results.

the recovery process of breast augmentation?
The recovery after breast augmentation surgery or breast enlargement surgery, in both the cases of breast implant surgery and fat grafting, is pretty much the same. The patient is generally monitored for a few hours after the surgery at the clinic itself to keep a check on the vitals. After leaving, the patient has to wear a sports bra for at least three days so as to provide support and quicken the healing process.
Apart from this, it takes about three days for the pain and soreness to completely go away. This is common after a breast augmentation surgery procedure and the doctor might prescribe certain medications to alleviate the pain. Vigorous exercise must be avoided immediately after the surgery as it might hamper the healing process.
In the breast augmentation recovery process, the patient must visit the doctor after 3 days in order to remove the dressing, and after 10 days to remove the stitches.
Follow-ups must be taken with Dr. Santosh Bhatia after 1 month, 3 months, and 6 months in order to analyze the result and recovery.

The risks that are associated with breast augmentation surgery are very rare. Some of these include:
