If you are unhappy with naturally small or asymmetrical breasts, or breasts that have lost volume after pregnancy or weight loss, breast augmentation may be your best option.
During breast augmentation, implants are placed to increase the size and fullness of your breasts.
You may be a suitable candidate for breast augmentation if:
You are in good physical health
Your breasts have stopped developing
You don't have any chronic medical conditions that could affect your surgical recovery.
You have realistic expectations of surgery and understand the potential risks
Time and costs
Breast augmentation is an outpatient procedure that takes only a few hours in theater. We can arrange for you to arrive in South Africa during the week end, attend consultation with the surgeon on Monday and have surgery performed on a Wednesday.
After surgery it is normal to experience some discomfort and soreness in the first few days, during which you will be accommodated in a recovery facility and followed 24/7 by our nurses.
Week 2 of your stay you will be available to travel and enjoy some of the country best scenery while you recover. We recommend to recover for at least two weeks before you can be dismissed back to your normal routine by the surgeon.
The cost of the procedure may vary significantly, according to your choice of procedure and materials used, but you can have some very good quality implants done for as little as USD 3,000.
Important to know!
It’s important to note that breast augmentation will not correct breasts that sag or droop. The placement of implants does not elevate the position of saggy breasts. If you are unhappy with saggy breasts, you may want to consider combining breast lift (mastopexy) with the placement of implants.
While the results of breast augmentation are long-lasting, breast implants are not lifetime devices. They are vulnerable to the effects of gravity and aging, just as natural breasts are. At some point you will need to have implants replaced or removed. Our plastic surgeons will discuss this in greater detail and answer any questions you have.
