Breast Augmentation Mammoplasty

Breast augmentation mammoplasty (also known as a boob job) means increasing breast size by surgically inserting implants. The first breast augmentations were performed in the late 1960s. Since then many improvements have been made in both the technique of inserting implants and the implants themselves.

Breast augmentation is one of the most common and popular cosmetic procedures worldwide. Although comprehensive statistics on cosmetic procedures in Australia are not collected, in the United States approximately 286,694 Americans had breast implants in 2014. These women range in age from mid 20s to 80.

Different types of augmentation

There are three kinds of breast augmentation performed in Australia.

A primary augmentation refers to altering the size, form and feel of the breasts.

A revision augmentation refers to the need to correct the outcome of a previous breast augmentation surgery.

A primary reconstruction refers to the need to replace breast tissue as a result of damage, trauma or disease.

    I’m a size B would like to be a size C would I need a Breast Lift or would just a Breast Augmentation be ok. I noticed in one of the before and after photos there was a photo that looked just like me and she only had Augmentation. And what hospital does Dr Peter Laniewski use?

    Thank You

      Hi Leanne,

      Thanks for your question! You’ll need to have a consult with a surgeon to answer this fully, since it may depend on your individual circumstances. Generally though, an augmentation is all that is required to go bigger (no lift required). We’ll have Dr Laniewski email you directly to answer more of your questions. We wish you all the best with your procedure!
