Be sure to listen to the doctor, but don’t be afraid to give your input regarding the shape and size that you desire.


There is another way to get breast augmentation done if surgery does not appeal to you. Autologous fat transfer works only if you have some excess fat on your body. This fat is harvested using liposuction, the fat is refined and processed and then re-injected into the breasts to increase the size. However, there are a couple of shortcomings with this procedure. First, all the fat may not take and some will be absorbed by the body over time, in which case you may require topping up treatment. Also, the procedure is only viable if you have small breasts and want to go up one size only.
