Breast Augmentation Operation

A Breast Augmentation operation is a simple and very safe cosmetic procedure. It aims to change the shape of the breast by giving it a larger and more rounded shape, using certain medical fillings made of silicone or saline liquid.

The cosmetic doctor determines the type of filling, according to the required size and desired results, as well as the skin type, body shape, and age, which is considered a key factor in determining the type of the fillings.

  • Silicone Fillings: Silicone fillings give a natural look to the breast shape, as it consists of a silicone shell filled with silicone gel, which is a transparent viscous liquid that is similar in composition to deciduous glands that make up the breast. A woman must be over 20 years of age in order to undergo Breast Augmentation surgery with silicone fillings. 


  • Saline Liquid Fillings: Give a relatively large size to the breast than silicone fillings that are made of brine, which has a silicone rubber membrane inside. It can be filled with different quantities depending on the required size. A woman must be over 18 years of age in order to undergo Breast Augmentation surgery with saline fillings.

Breast Augmentation surgery is involved in other therapeutic purposes, as it is used as one of the stages in the treatment of breast cancer or to achieve symmetry between the two breasts sizes.
