Many women would love to have bigger breasts, but their reasons for desiring this change are as varied as they are. Some are frustrated by hollow breasts after weight loss or pregnancy; others have always had a naturally small breast size. Whatever your reason for desiring a size increase, breast augmentation is the procedure to choose if you want larger breasts.
How does breast augmentation increase breast size? Your surgeon places an implant into the breast to add volume and enhance the breast’s shape. This breast implant remains in place until it is removed or replaced, often 10 to 15 years after the initial surgery.
Big, small or in between, there’s a breast implant size for every woman. Breast implants are typically measured in CCs. We use an innovative breast implant sizing system so patients can see what their breasts will look like after surgery. It is important to not just choose breast size based on photos or imaging, but actually seeing how the implant size matches to your hips and figure. Often fuller figured bodies will choose a larger size implant to complement their body type.
Costs for breast surgery vary widely, depending on the procedure you’re receiving and the difficulty of the operation. It is important to get the best result possible at the best cost in the safest facility. . Choose a skilled and experienced surgeon, with lots of experience performing cosmetic breast surgeries. Our practice has performed thousands of breast augmentations. The typical cost of breast augmentation surgery ranges from $5,500 to $8,000 depending on the type of implant.
To help you plan for the expense of cosmetic breast surgery, we’ll provide a detailed estimate prior to your procedure. Until that time, we have created a handy cost estimator so you can begin to plan.

Sagging, or ptosis of the breast, is one of the most common breast complaints, especially after pregnancy or weight loss. When sagging occurs, the breast tissues shift downward, causing increased fullness in the lower breast and a loss of volume in the upper breast.
A breast lift is the only solution for sagging. It can be performed on its own but is commonly paired with breast augmentation to lift and reshape the breasts while increasing size. These two procedures are often performed at the same time, but some patients will need to separate procedures, receiving the lift first and the breast implants after healing if they have lost a lot of weight or have very loose skin. This is only about 15% of patients.
Our surgeons use vertical lifting techniques when possible, eliminating the older anchor-type incisions for up to 90% of patients. This approach significantly reduces scarring and improves on the aesthetic result we can achieve. We also infuse the breast tissues with a local anesthetic to dramatically reduce pain medication needs after surgery as well as using quick recovery techniques that we have developed.
We are strong believers in specializing, finding areas in plastic surgery to master and excel. Our specialization in breast procedures means that we can comfortably perform difficult breast surgeries, including many that other surgeons won’t attempt. As Dr. Malhotra often says, “With experience, the difficult becomes easy.”
