Breast augmentation, sometimes referred to as a "breast aug" or "boob job" by patients; it is also referred to as augmentation mammoplasty.  It involves using breast implants or fat transfer to increase the size of your breasts.  This procedure can also restore breast volume lost after weight reduction or pregnancy to help achieve a more rounded breast shape.  Sometimes it can be used to  improve natural breast size asymmetry (breasts that are different sizes on each side).  Typically breast implants are used, but sometimes fat from another part of the patient's body is used to create the improved breast volume.  This procedure is referred to as fat transfer breast augmentation.  Sometimes breast augmentation needs to be combined with another procedure known as a mastopexy or breast lift.  Dr. Bastidas can help you determine what would be best for you if you want to improve the shape of your breasts.
