Breast augmentation surgeries include several methods, such as breast implants or fat transfer, to improve your breast appearance. 

Whether you are looking to restore your breast volume after pregnancy and weight loss or enhance your curves, breast augmentation is what you need. 

In this blog, we will tell you everything you should know about the various aspects of breast augmentation, including its types, costs, and benefits.

What is Breast Augmentation?

Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure that enhances the size and shape of your breasts.

During the surgery, our surgeon inserts breast implants or fat transfer to achieve your ideal breast fullness and symmetry. 

Augmentation mammoplasty can address naturally small breasts, breast asymmetry, or volume loss due to pregnancy, breastfeeding, or aging

Types of Breast Augmentation

There are 2 primary types of breast augmentation:

  • Implant-based breast augmentation
  • Fat transfer breast augmentation

You should choose the mentioned methods by consulting your surgeon based on your specific goals and body type. You may need other additional surgeries to enhance your breasts, such as opting for a breast lift in Iran and breast augmentation simultaneously.



Breast augmentation with implants includes the insertion of silicone or saline implants to increase your breast size. These implants has various shapessizes, and textures. This diversity allows customization to meet your needs.

There are several types of breast implants, such as: 

  • Saline breast implants
  • Structured saline breast implants
  • Silicone breast implants
  • Form-stable breast implants
  • Round breast implants
  • Smooth breast implants
  • Textured breast implants

If you opt for a breast implant in Iran, our surgeon suggests the best implant type based on your body condition and your aesthetic needs.

Our surgeon can place implants through 2 approaches

Before choosing either of these methods, our surgeon analyzes different factors, like the amount of your natural breast tissue and your desired outcome.

Fat Transfer

Fat transfer breast augmentation, or autologous fat grafting, utilizes your fat cells harvested from another part of the body to augment the breasts. 

This technique is ideal for you if you want a slight enhancement or if you prefer a natural approach without using implants.

The fat transfer process includes 3 major phases:

  1. Harvesting: The first step in fat transfer breast augmentation involves collecting fat from donor sites on your body, such as the abdomen, thighs, or hips
  2. Purification: Our surgeon carefully processed to separate the fat cells from other fluids and impurities once they harvested your fat.
  3. Injection: Then, our surgeon injects your purified fat cells into your breasts using small cannulas. Our surgeon strategically places the fat cells in multiple layers to achieve the desired augmentation and natural-looking results.

Fat transfer breast augmentation offers a more soft and natural shape compared to implant-based augmentation. 

Since fat transfer does not involve implants, the risk of capsular contracture is also significantly reduced.

Do I Need Breast Augmentation?

You may need breast augmentation if you want to:

  • Reconstruct your breast after a mastectomy 
  • Correct congenital breast deformities
  • You’re dissatisfied with the size or shape of your breasts or your asymmetrical breasts
  • You’ve been struggling with breast volume loss since your pregnancy or weight loss
  • You want to restore breast fullness and balance

It is essential to consult with a professional surgeon who can assess your circumstances and guide you in making an informed decision.

Benefits of Breast Augmentation

After breast augmentation, you achieve enhanced breast size and shape. You will experience improved self-esteem, increased clothing options, and a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance. 

Yet, breast augmentation is not the only way to achieve your desired breast shape. There are several alternatives for this goal if you opt for mammoplasty in Iran.

What are the Differences Between Fat Transfer and Breast Implant?

Here are the major differences between fat-transfer breast augmentation and implant-based breast augmentation:

Natural Shape

Fat transfer uses your fat cells to augment your breasts, resulting in a more natural look and feel compared to breast implants.


The incisions made for implant placement are usually longer than those for fat transfer and may result in more noticeable scarring on your body.


Your recovery time after fat transfer surgery is generally shorter compared to implant-based augmentation.

You may experience bruising, swelling, and soreness in both the donor and recipient areas. On the other hand, you may experience more discomfort, tightness, and temporary changes in nipple or breast sensation.


You may need correction sessions to achieve your desired results after the transfer because some of the transferred fat may not survive, and your breasts lose volume over time. 

On the other hand, breast implants provide a more long-lasting result. Note that implants are not lifetime solutions, and you may require replacement or removal in the future due to complications or personal preference.

Breast Augmentation and Mommy Makeover

A mommy makeover in Iran includes breast augmentation, tummy tuck, and liposuction, which can address common post-pregnancy concerns. 

Breast augmentation is often a key element of mommy makeover surgery. It is a combination of cosmetic procedures aimed at rejuvenating a woman’s body after childbirth. 

Breastfeeding and pregnancy can cause significant changes in breast size, shape, and firmness

What are the Risks and Complications of Breast Augmentation?

While implant-based breast augmentation and fat transfer breast augmentation are generally considered safe, there are potential risks and complications associated with these procedures. These can include:

Risks and Complications of Implant-Based Breast Augmentation:

  • Infection: After breast augmentation, you may struggle with infection around the implant, leading to swelling, redness, pain, and potentially you might require implant removal.
  • Capsular contracture: After breast augmentation surgery, your body forms a natural lining around the implant called a capsule. In some cases, this capsule can tighten and contract, resulting in a firm or distorted appearance of your breasts. 
  • Implant rupture or leakage: Breast implants can rupture or leak over time, resulting in a change in breast shape, size, or firmness. If saline implants rupture, your body absorbs the saline solution is harmlessly. However, if silicone implants rupture, the silicone gel may leak into the surrounding tissue, requiring implant removal or replacement.
  • Changes in nipple and breast sensation: You may experience temporary changes in nipple or breast sensation after breast augmentation surgery.
  • Scarring: As mentioned before, breast implant carries a higher risk of remaining scar marks on your body than fat transfer. To have the least scar mark possible, ask your surgeon about healing instructions and any medication that helps scar mark reduction.

Risks of Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation:

  • Fat absorption and volume retention: Some of your transferred fat may be reabsorbed by the body, which can result in breast volume reduction over time. 
  • Irregularities and asymmetry: You should consider the risk of uneven distribution of fat, resulting in irregularities or asymmetry in breast shape and size.
  • Calcification and cyst formation: After surgery, you may notice developing calcifications or cysts within the breast tissue after fat transfer augmentation. 
  • Infection and bleeding: You may struggle with temporary infection and bleeding at the site of fat harvesting or transfer after surgery.
