What Is Chest Augmentation?
Chest Augmentation is another name for Chest Enlargement or Chest Enhancement, and is also colloquially known as Boob Job. It is the single most requested plastic surgery in the world. For women, their chest play an important part in their overall personality and it also gives them a lot of confidence. Many women feel the need to have chest surgeries – some for cosmetic reasons, some due to deformities, and some due to mastectomies (removal of chest due to cancer). Whatever the reason, it is important to know that it is a surgery, which would need proper medical expertise and support.
So, before deciding to undergo this surgery, it is imperative to get a clear understanding of the process, and the do’s and don’ts associated with it. Being the leaders in chest surgeries, and the best in the field of Chest augmentation in India, we share the relevant information here for you.
Why Chest Augmentation?
Usually, chest augmentation is done to enhance the shape, size, and texture of chest, and to make them appear larger and fuller. This may be needed for cosmetic reasons or for reconstructive purposes, such as mastectomy after chest cancer, or correction of deformities. The reasons can be very personal and the decision should be made by you and your surgeon after understanding your needs, and more importantly your expectations.
You should be aware that chest augmentation surgery does not automatically correct sagging or drooping chest. A chest lift procedure may be required to rectify sagging chest, which can be performed together with your chest implant surgery or independently, at a later date.
A well planned and executed procedure can help regain chest volume, get a better shape, reduce asymmetry, improve the balance of chest & hip contours, increase fullness and size of chest, and also help enhance self-image and self-confidence. Book a confidential consultation with our surgeon to discuss your needs.
What are the types of Chest Augmentation Implants?
Silicone implants were first produced in the early 1960s, and are still extremely popular. They are silicone shells filled with a plastic gel, which makes them feel more like real chest than other options. The quality of the gel and the shell itself has evolved with time and research, making them quite long lasting and with a superior feel. These days highly cohesive silicone gel chest implants also referred to as “gummy bear chest implants” are gaining popularity over traditional or regular silicone implants. The gel inside these implants is quite similar in structure to the “gummy bears” sweets – so even if there is any mishap, or leak, the gel does not drip out. More than 90% of women prefer silicone implants, which now come with up to 15 years warranty. These implants are available in both teardrop (natural anatomy shape) and round shapes.
Saline Filled Implants
Saline implants are empty silicone shells that are either pre-filled with a saline solution ( sterile saltwater) or are filled during the implant process.
Saline-filled implants are generally common to women opting for a less-risky chest augmentation alternative to silicone implants. Saline shells can come in different sizes and textures.
Fat grafting is commonly known as lipofilling, fat injection or fat transfer procedure. Essentially, fat tissue is harvested from a certain area of the patient’s body,(typically the abdominal, thigh, and glutes) and transferred to the desired area for augmentation or enhancement.

Frequently Asked Questions
The size and type of chest implant ideal for you is a decision that must be made in consultation with your surgeon. These decisions depend on factors such as your current chest size and shape, areola size, quality of chest skin, volume of chest tissue, your anatomy (height, weight, chest footprint, body ratios), your plans for motherhood, your expectations from the surgery, and various other factors.
It is not practical to expect transition from a cup size A to cup size DD in a single surgery. Nor is it possible that you dictate to the surgeon that you need a certain size/ type of implant, with a specific incision and placement. Your surgeon should guide you to what is right for you personally.
At Cocoona, our surgeon will do a detailed assessment of all relevant factors before suggesting what size, type, incision, and placement is appropriate for your specific case to deliver the best surgical outcome. We’ll make you try some “sizers” to give you an idea of the look and feel of your enhanced chest. Our end objective will always be a natural-looking result that is apt for your body and goals.
Broadly speaking, pregnancy does not affect the breast implants. While you should consider future pregnancies in deciding about the size and placement of implants, pregnancy by itself does not hinder your implants. However, some aesthetic impact (in looks and shape) is possible due to pregnancy. During pregnancy, the breasts naturally enlarge or engorge, which will then shrink after you stop nursing your baby, resulting in some sagging skin. Dimpling of skin is also a possibility in certain types of implants. However, both these are aesthetic issues and don’t generally affect your implants per se. In fact, many women experience none or very minimal of such effects.
Please discuss in full detail with our consulting breast surgeon of your plans for pregnancy to get the right advice on the type of surgery best suited for you.
Doctors see no harmful effects on chest milk with either saline or silicone implants.
You will be able to breastfeed depending on the type and placement of your implants and the manner in which the surgery was done.
Sometimes, during surgery, milk ducts, glands or nerves may be damaged, which can affect milk production or milk flow.
Type of incision – The type of surgical incision made may affect your ability to breastfeed, if it is around or across your areola (“periareolar incision”). Incisions made under the chest, armpit or umbilical area are less likely to damage your milk glands, ducts and nerves.
Placement of implants – The position where your chest implants are placed may also impede breastfeeding. Implants placed under the chest muscle are less likely to impact your ability to breastfeed.
Many women are able to successfully breastfeed even with implants.
Make sure that you mention your pregnancy plans to our consulting chest surgeon so they will advise you on what you need to do to be able to breastfeed with your implants, and also how you can monitor and ensure that your baby is getting sufficient breast milk.
Chest implants today are definitely safer and more durable than in the past. However, they are medical devices, and like any other medical device, can fail over time, and may require removal or replacement. The best types of chest implants today come with a 15 years life. So, depending upon your age at the time of surgery, you may need at least 1 re-operation, and you should take that into consideration.
At Cocoona, we use the highest quality chest implants that have a lifespan of 15 years. Additionally, the skill of our leading chest surgeons ensures that your surgery is done in the most technically proficient manner to ensure maximum longevity and minimal chances of revision surgery.
The cost of a Chest augmentation surgery depends on the following:
Type of implant – Cost varies based on implant type and quality – silicone implants cost more than saline implants. Chest augmentation via fat transfer costs even more.
Technique – The technique used also affects the cost – based on incision type and location of implant.
Surgeon’s Expertise – The surgeon’s fee is based on their experience. Obviously, a reputed surgeon with an established track record of quality results will charge higher fees.
Clinic/ Hospital – Fees also depend upon the quality of the facility chosen for the operation, and also whether the procedure is done as outpatient (with twilight anesthesia) or as inpatient (with general anesthesia).
Geographic Area – Depending on the city/ area you decide to have your procedure in, your cost is likely be different. Larger metropolitan cities might cost more.
You should bear in mind that the expertise of your surgeon and your comfort factor with him/ her should be one the most important considerations than just the cost of the surgery. An initially cheaper option could turn out to be an expensive proposition in the long run.
