Dos and Don’ts for Breast Augmentation

If you are considering getting a breast augmentation (BA), it is important to hear from other women who have been there. Here is a list of common dos and don’ts advised by BA patients:


  • Seek a plastic surgeon who is experienced with breast enhancement surgeries.
  • Choose a plastic surgeon whom you feel most comfortable with, someone you can openly address your concerns and desires regarding the surgery.
  • Ask for a 3D Simulation System, like Vectra 3D, which helps patients to visualise the effects of the surgery and to decide which implants they want.
  • Check the brand of implants. Motiva Implants is the latest generation of breast implants and comes with a high safety profile and lifetime warranty against rupture.
  • Follow your plastic surgeon’s advice during post-surgery care, which would help with better results and fast recovery (information online may be unreliable!)


  • Don’t use other women’s / celebrity’s implant size as a guide. Volume depends on each individual’s body frame.
  • Don’t assume ‘bigger is better’. Larger implants that are too big for some individual’s frame may not look aesthetically pleasing and may have more complications in the long run.
  • Don’t expect to see results immediately. The results may be full and firm at first, but it takes time to soften into a more natural feel and shape
  • Never do the surgery to please others!
