Breast Augmentation / Enlargement Symptoms & Causes

Breast augmentation, also known as mammoplasty, is a cosmetic procedure that increases breast size. It can be performed for various reasons, including enhancing body contour and proportion, restoring breast volume after weight loss or pregnancy, or achieving desired symmetry after mastectomy (breast removal). Here at LIPS, our board-certified surgeons utilise advanced techniques and high-quality implants to create natural-looking, long-lasting results that align with your unique aesthetic goals.

Types of Breast Augmentation Surgery

Breast augmentation surgery varies in its approach, with the main distinction being the placement of the implants.


  • This method involves positioning the implant directly behind the breast tissue and on top of the chest wall muscle.

  • It typically results in less post-surgery discomfort.

  • It may be an excellent option for individuals experiencing a slight sag in their breasts, providing a lift and enhancing the overall appearance.


  • The implant is placed behind both the breast tissue and the chest wall muscle.

  • This technique offers additional padding around the implant, which can be particularly beneficial for those with a slender build or limited breast tissue, minimising the chances of the implant being felt or seen.

  • Though this method may involve a longer recovery time, the end result tends to look more natural, especially in the upper breast area.

  • Keep in mind that implants placed behind the muscle may shift during muscle contractions, a phenomenon known as animation. This is a normal response and is to be expected.

Dual Plane

  • This innovative approach combines the benefits of both sub-glandular and sub-muscular placements.

  • The implant is positioned partly behind the breast and partly behind the muscle.

Your surgeon will help you choose the most suitable approach for your unique needs and body type. Open dialogue and a clear understanding of the procedure are key.
