About Breast Surgery

Breast surgery can improve the appearance of your breasts and boost your self-confidence.

There is considerable variation in the volume, shape, size and spacing of a woman's breasts. The three major determinants of breast appearance are size, shape of the individual breast and the position of the breast and nipple when standing in an upright position.

In western societies breast appearance is directly associated with the sexual attractiveness of women and their perceived body image. Therefore it comes as no surprise that every year millions of women throughout the world undergo breast surgery or ‘boob job’ to improve the appearance and contour of their breasts with the vast majority seeking changes in their breast shape or size.
