Breast Augmentation In Singapore: What You Need To Know

Breast Augmentation Singapore

Considering breast augmentation in Singapore? Here’s what you need to know about breast augmentation – what it is, its types, risks, and costs of doing it in the country and other alternatives.

What Is Breast Augmentation?

Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure designed to enhance the size, shape, and volume of the breasts. It helps you achieve a fuller and more proportionate breast appearance, which can positively impact self-confidence and body image.

In Singapore, breast augmentation should be performed by qualified plastic surgeons who specialise in cosmetic and reconstructive surgery. A qualified surgeon should have undergone extensive medical training and obtained the necessary certifications and licence to practise in the country.

How Is Breast Augmentation Performed?

The procedure involves the use of either breast implants or fat transfer to achieve desired results. Breast implants, typically made of silicone gel or saline solution, are inserted through carefully placed incisions under general anaesthesia. These implants come in various shapes and sizes to cater to individual preferences and body types. Alternatively, fat transfer involves harvesting fat from areas such as the abdomen, hips, or thighs through liposuction, which is then injected into the breasts to enhance volume and contour.

Breast Implants

Breast implant procedures are done under general anaesthesia. It involves incisions in predetermined locations, such as under the breast, around the areola, or in the armpit, to create pockets for the breast implants. The implants will then be inserted into the pockets either behind the breast tissue or beneath the chest muscle.

It is to note that breast implants may not last a lifetime. It may vary depending on several factors, including the type of implant, the patient’s age, lifestyle, and any potential complications. Routine follow-up visits with a medical professional is recommended to monitor the condition of the implants and address any concerns promptly.

Fat Transfer

Fat transfer breast augmentation uses the patient’s own body fat to enhance the size and shape of the breasts. It begins with a liposuction, where excess fat is harvested from areas such as tummy, hips, or thighs. The fat will then be injected into the breasts to achieve the desired volume and contour. Since the fat is derived from the patient’s own body, there is minimal risk of rejection or allergic reactions in a fat transfer breast augmentation. Another benefit of this procedure is body contouring in areas of the body where the fat was obtained.

How Much Does Breast Augmentation Cost In Singapore?

The cost of breast augmentation may vary based on factors like the surgeon’s expertise, facility fees, type of implants, the amount of augmentation required, and the prevailing exchange rate (when done overseas). In Singapore, the cost of breast augmentation may range from S$11,000 to S$20,000. 

With the historically high strength of the Singapore dollar, you may also consider doing the procedure outside the country. Below is a table of cost estimates associated with breast augmentation procedures in Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, and Korea.

Are There Possible Risks?

While breast augmentation is a widely performed procedure and is successful for many, it is important to understand the risks associated with breast augmentation. Some of the possible risks are:

  • Anaesthesia-related risks.
  • Infection at the incision site or around the implant.
  • Capsular contracture or scar tissue forming around the implant, causing it to harden and potentially deform.
  • Implant rupture or leakage.
  • Changes in breast and nipple sensation.
  • Persistent pain or discomfort in the breasts.
  • Hematoma (blood pooling) or seroma (fluid accumulation) around the implant.
  • Asymmetry or uneven results.
  • Implant malposition or displacement.
  • Visible scarring.
  • Need for future implant removal or revision surgeries.
  • Changes in breast shape and size due to weight fluctuations or aging.
  • The US FDA reports a risk of rare breast implant-associated cancers – anaplastic large cell lymphoma (BIA-ALCL) and squamous cell carcinoma (BIA-SCC)

The risks and potential complications of breast augmentation may vary depending on individual factors such as the type of implants used or the surgical technique employed. It is recommended to have a thorough discussion with your plastic surgeon about the potential risks and benefits of breast augmentation.
