Frequently Ask Questions
How long does it last?
Dependent on the brand used, Hyaluronic Acid Fillers can last up to 18 months and some even beyond two years. By the time half of the filler volume is gone, the effect will not be as visible as when you first placed the filler. Hence, most ladies opt for a top-up at 1 years time, depending on the brand of filler used. Hyacorp fillers tend to be faster absorbed because they are made from a compound which is naturally occurring in the body. Hence, the body knows how to digest and remove Hyacorp from the body faster than it can remove something like Aqualift. The short duration is actually a blessing in disguise, because then the body will not have a large foreign body in the breast for too long, and would not cause fibrosis or granulomas (lumpy masses) in the breast.
Who is suitable for breast fillers? Naturally Small Breast
Many ladies have naturally small breasts for various reasons. When a filler is injected below the breast tissue, it presents your own breasts forward, making it appear better endowed. If you have some amount of breast tissue, then you will feel your natural breasts on top of the filler.
After pregnancy and especially with breast feeding, the breasts may sag as a result of loss of supportive breast tissues, and loss of volume of the breasts. By restoring volume to the breasts, fillers have an obvious lifting effect for such patients and restores the fuller look they have prior to pregnancy. We have many patients who opt for augmentation after pregnancy to bring them back to their breastfeeding size.
One size up
Some ladies with reasonable sized breasts opt to have a filler to get to a desired breast size. This tends to be the most ideal situation because with an adequate amount of breast tissue, the filler is not really able to be felt under your existing breast tissue, and thus the feel is extremely natural.
Who are unsuitable for fillers?
scarless breast enlargement with breast fillers
Ladies with hardly any breast tissue, or who have saggy pendulous breasts are unsuitable for breast fillers. In the first situation, there is not enough breast tissue to cover the filler and thus the feel of the breast becomes firm and unnatural. In the second situation, too saggy breasts are unable to be helped with a filler due to the excessive drooping. In both of these situations, a breast implant may be more suitable. A consultation with our doctor will let you know whether you are unsuitable for fillers or not.To find out if you are suitable to undergo this procedure, a thorough consultation is necessary with our physicians, during which, a detailed history and examination will be taken and the details of the procedure explained. A mandatory ultrasound test is necessary to rule out any breast problems, so that we are able to distinguish filler related problems from real breast problems.
The price of breast fillers is from SGD3,900 per 100cc. This will be sufficient to increase most regular built ladies from an A cup to a B cub breast. However this may not always be the case as ladies who are taller and broader chested may need more cc to achieve the same result. Our doctors will advise you accordingly during the consultation.
Other options you may consider for breast augmentation include breast implants and breast lipofilling. Breast implants involves the use of silicon implants inserted under your breasts to enlarge them. The advantage is that maximal enlargement of the breasts can be achieved. With breast lipofilling, your own fats are harvested from a part of your body with excess fats and this is injected into your breast to make it larger. With breast lipofilling, the main advantages are that the feel is completely natural (of course, because it’s your own fats), and that there is no surgical scar.
