Want to Increase the Size of Your Breasts? Consider Breast Augmentation

By: Dr. Brian Hwang


Having full, round breasts is one of the classic hallmarks of beauty and femininity. If you’re like many women, however, you may have naturally small breasts – or, you may have lost some of your natural breast volume due to aging, pregnancy, breastfeeding, or weight loss. Whatever the case may be, women hoping to add or restore breast volume for a fuller, more desirable breast size may benefit from breast augmentation surgery. At Brian Hwang, MD, Plastic Surgery in West Hills, CA, board-certified aesthetic plastic surgeon Dr. Brian Hwang specializes in body contouring procedures – like breast augmentation – to help patients look and feel like the best version of themselves. Explore the benefits of breast augmentation surgery below, and find out if this life-changing procedure may be right for you.

How can I get bigger breasts?

While padded bras and bra inserts can certainly give your look a temporary boost, many women desire a more permanent and complete solution for increasing their breast size. For these patients, breast augmentation surgery is unquestionably one of the most fitting options. The three most popular choices for breast augmentation in West Hills, CA include:

  • Saline breast implants
  • Silicone breast implants
  • Fat transfer to the breast

Which type of breast implant should I get?

Most women choose either saline or silicone gel breast implants for their breast augmentation surgery, each of which has its own unique set of benefits. Saline implants are made from a silicone shell filled with a sterile saline solution. If ruptured, saline implants will deflate and require immediate replacement, with the saline solution able to be safely resorbed by the body. Silicone gel implants are approved for women 22 years of age and older and are often thought to look and feel more natural than saline implants. Should a silicone implant rupture, it will not “leak” fluid into the body. However, ruptured silicone implants still require replacement as soon as the rupture is detected, which is often only possible using MRI.

A third option – fat transfer to the breast – involves taking excess fat from another area of the patient’s body and injecting it into her breasts to add volume and enhance the breast shape. This approach is often preferred by women seeking a more natural alternative to synthetic implants – as well as results that look and feel the most natural.

During your initial consultation for breast augmentation surgery in West Hills, Dr. Hwang will discuss your concerns, evaluate your natural breasts, explain all of your breast implant options at length, and help you decide which choice is right for you.

How many cup sizes bigger can I go with breast implants?

Because each woman’s body type, frame, skin elasticity, and other characteristics are different, it is important to choose breast implant sizing carefully. While a dramatic size increase is certainly possible with breast implants, Dr. Hwang takes great care to ensure breast implant sizes will match the individual anatomical and lifestyle needs – as well as aesthetic desires – of the patient without sacrificing her safety or comfort.

Am I a good candidate for breast implants?

Generally speaking, women considering breast implants should be:

  • In good overall health
  • Non-smoking
  • Have good remaining skin elasticity
  • Have healthy motivations
  • Have realistic expectations for their results
  • Desire fuller or larger breasts
  • Done having children and breastfeeding
  • At a healthy, stable weight
