What is Breast Augmentation Surgery in Korea?

Breast augmentation, also known as Augmentation mammoplasty, beautifully enlarges the size, shape or fullness of a woman’s small breasts according to the body shape and proportion of individuals and makes beautiful breasts. The surgeon place silicone, saline or alternative composite breast implants under the chest muscles or breast tissue.


The most recently widely used implant composite is “Cohesive Gel Implant”. There are 3 popular types of breast implants that are widely used in South Korea: Textured Teardrop Type, Textured Round Type and Smooth Round Type. Smooth type has more natural movement than textured type due to thin surface and soft touching. Texture type (round & teardrop) is natural due to gravity and retains natural shape in any moving position even when lying down. Choosing the right implant for the individual’s body size should be decided after adequate consultation with the surgeon with many years of breast surgery experience to achieve natural and voluminous breast line.


There are three incision methods for breast implants: areola (nipples), armpit, and underneath the breasts (inframammary). Incision site also needs to be discussed while choosing breast implant. If you are expecting to get pregnant in the future, the armpit or underneath the breasts approach will be preferred when considering breast feeding. If you want to minimize scarring, the areola approach will be considered. As every surgical procedure has risks, breast augmentation is no exception. Complications such as capsular contracture, infection, nipple or breast sensation reduction, as well as implant ruptures or leaks could also occur.
