A body asset that some women want to look good in is the breast. Unfortunately, not all are blessed with well-formed and voluptuous breasts that are often seen on the models of Sports Illustrated magazines, donning skimpy two-piece bikinis.
A little-known fact: the size of a woman’s breasts is actually determined by genes.
Studies say that ladies may either inherit their chest size from either bloodline of their parents. Interesting, right?
But, before you go blaming one of your parents for your A or B-cup measurement, read this article as we have collected 4 reviews from Singapore women who courageously went under the knife to alter and achieve the breasts they have always dreamed of!
Breast Augmentation in Singapore by Yuna
Blogger Yuna of jpglicious.com breaks down her breast augmentation experience into two parts. The first segment of her review details her consultation and surgery day, while the other later part tackles her post-operation recovery. Prior to this, she shares her story of why she decided to have her breasts operated on in this blog.
Yuna shares that her breast size was of no importance to her during the time she was growing up, as all she wanted was to look slim. But, as she morphed into adulthood, Yuna acknowledges that her perception of beauty changed. She struggled to have B-cup sized boobs and would use push-up bras and paddings to make her breasts look bigger. She even fell for breast enhancing creams and other diets that promised to give fuller breasts but to no avail. So after years and years of contemplation (10 years to be exact!), Yuna finally scheduled herself for a breast augmentation procedure.
During her consultation, Yuna discloses that she was honest with her doctor in saying that she did not want fake boobs. With this, her doctor advised for her to schedule another consultation to undergo a session, which would allow a real-time simulation of how her desired implants would appear on the patient. This is called the Breast Implant Trial Volume Sizing Fitting Session.
On her second consultation, Yuna shares that this is where she decided on the type and shape of implants to be used on her body. According to her, there are two shapes of implants to choose from round and teardrop. Yuna opted to go for the teardrop for a more natural look. Likewise, implants have two types: Saline and Silicon. Yuna chose Silicon implants as she says these are more stable and felt more real to the touch.
Yuna further shares that she felt a little bit overwhelmed during the fitting session as her breasts looked huge during the simulation and she was not used to seeing it that way. She also highly recommends asking your doctor their opinion on what size is best for you prior to the implant procedure.
So the “D-day” came for Yuna’s breasts! Pardon the pun; Yuna actually got a C-cup to be more accurate. Yuna came into the scheduled breast augmentation treatment wearing a top recommended by the clinic: a loose button polo shirt.
As preparation before her procedure, Yuna mentions that she did not have any food or drink for 12 hours. She filled some forms as required by the clinic, including a consent form. She also processed payments for the treatment, other additional medications and a Stabilising Bra for aftercare. After completing this, a clinic nurse took her height and weight measurements. This was followed by the final measurements and markings done by her doctor on her body before the surgery.
Yuna recalls being put under general anaesthesia and then it was lights off for her.
After an hour, Yuna woke up from her surgery. She says she felt several body sensations at once: dizziness, aches, and tiredness, no thanks to the general anaesthesia. These discomforts were bearable though. To address pain, Yuna advises talking to your doctor about getting additional painkillers.
Was there difficulty in the movement? Yuna says there was none. She felt tightness around her chest area, but this did not hinder her from moving around. A chaperone is also important to be by your side after the surgery. As Yuna reveals, her friend who accompanied her provided moral support and a listening ear for whenever she needed to vent out about the pain she felt from the treatment. She further suggests taking a taxi home to protect you from being pushed around in crowded buses or trains.

Breast Augmentation Procedure + Recover Process by Vikki
Vikki recalls pains from her childhood when she was humiliated for having small breasts. So, as she grew up she says she used padded bras, which were uncomfortable. It was because of these experiences that she was fervent on getting a breast augmentation.
At the start of her breast augmentation journey, Vikki shares about two generic breast implant shapes: Round and Teardrop. For women who wish to have a fuller shape on the top part of their breasts, Vikki recommends this shape. For women who can do away with rounder cleavages, Vikki suggests the Teardrop shape, as this is more natural.
Vikki educates her readers further about the kind of placements involved in breast augmentation. These are the Over and Under the Muscle placements. She notes that most breast implants use the Under the Muscle technique. This method is recommended for women who have thin skin and limited tissue around the breast. It also allows the breast to look natural.
After the doctor discussed these important pieces of information about breast implants, Vikki narrates that the stage she dreaded most came next—the revelation of her “non-existing boobs.”
During this stage, Vikki discloses that she had to remove her top and bra for the doctor to assess the suitable breast size to complement her body’s other measurements, such as weight, height and the size of her torso. After which, Vikki was asked to wear a tight white top so she and the doctor both have an idea on how her breast will turn out in the end. The doctor suggested for the size of 305CC implants for Vikki.
Once the assessment was done, Vikki finalizes the date of her surgery with the clinic.
Before the day of the surgery, Vikki enumerates a number of things that she had to undertake. These are a long list of pre-operative instructions (given by the doctor) and a mammogram, which serves as a record of your breast’s health prior to the surgery. Should a situation arise concerning your breasts, the mammogram will be helpful in addressing the concern. The list of Do’s and Don’ts are also itemized in her blog.
Surgery time! Vikki was ushered to the operating room where she was first injected with anaesthesia. The anesthesiologist placed an ice pack on the area for injection to lessen the pain. The surgery followed after this.
Vikki apologises, as she is not able to share photos of her surgery process because of a medical law in Singapore that bans the posting of such on any form of media.
When Vikki woke up after the surgery, she recalls peeking into her loose top and finally saw her big tight boobs. She was, obviously, very ecstatic about it. She was also informed that the effect of the anaesthesia could last up to 3 days, so she won’t be feeling any pain around the operated area during this time.
To adjust to her enhanced breasts, Vikki was taught some exercises to speed up her recovery and loosening of the tight muscles.
Moving on to her recovery stage. Vikki shares that she felt excruciating pain after the anaesthesia has worn off on the third day after the treatment. She was also exasperated about the amount of bruising on her body, which spread from her chest down to her thighs. Her doctor explained to her that this was caused by gravity and the flow of blood. It took a week for the bruises to heal. Vikki mentions that she became depressed during this week of recovery, as she was not able to bear looking at her body’s state in the mirror.
During the second week, the dressing on Vikki’s wounds was removed. At the same time, the implants were checked if they were settling in place correctly. The pain has subsided by this time and Vikki was advised to press on the scars on her chest to smoothen them.
By the fourth week, Vikki happily reports that her implants settled very well and her side boobs have softened. On the 6th week, her scars have lightened and side boobs have softened entirely. Her breasts, she adds, looked more natural each day. On the 12th week, her breasts have softened but she mentions that she was still a long way to go in order to recover fully. But, she excitedly shares that during this period she was able to shop for new bras as her cup size has grown from A/B to C/D!
Despite a week of whining after the procedure, Vikki reveals that she has so much more confidence with the way her body looked. In fact, two magazines have already booked her for photoshoots with her newly enhanced breasts!

The Mommy Makeover Enhancement After Child Bearing - Breast Augmentation and Recovery by Evelyn Wee
This is actually the third instalment of Evelyn Wee’s self-makeover. In this blog, she shares about her on-the-day breast augmentation experience.
To proceed with her surgery, Evelyn shares that she signed off some forms confirming her consent to have the breast augmentation procedure done on her. She does not deny the fact that she felt scared minutes before her surgery ensued.
Before heading to the operating room, Evelyn’s body was marked by the doctor. Evelyn was then led to where the surgery was to take place. As soon as she was settled on the bed, Evelyn recalls getting some injections that were administered by an anesthesiologist. The anaesthesia kicked in and she was out immediately in four seconds.
Evelyn recounts waking up and feeling drowsy. Her chest felt tight and a stinging sensation gripped the area where the incisions were made. She noted that her boobs were already very tight and elevated. Her entire procedure lasted for an hour.
A day after her procedure, Evelyn narrates that the muscles on her upper chest ached. She mentions having a minor difficulty in breathing due to her tight chest muscles. To help her muscles relax, Evelyn did the exercises that were taught to her by the doctor after the surgery was done. Assessing her breasts, Evelyn discloses that they did not have the cleavage that she wanted yet. The doctor told her that this would eventually show when the muscles are more relaxed.
A month following her procedure, Evelyn gladly reports that her breasts were well defined. She did have scars, which measured at around 3cm. The scar looked dark, but Evelyn shares that they lighten up gradually, blending into her skin tone. Her breasts looked more natural in the second month after her operation.
For costs, Evelyn shares

I Choose to Determine my Fate | My Breast Augmentation Journey by Amanda
Amanda confides in her blog that she usually got teased for having a flat chest. Once she watched a video by a Singapore vlogger who had her breast augmented. In the video, the vlogger mentioned how having a flat chest affected her confidence, hence her decision to have breast implants. Amanda was able to see herself in the shoes of that vlogger and the video has not left her mind since.
Years later, Amanda finally set foot and started her breast augmentation journey. She found a clinic that she liked and booked a consultation. On the day of her consultation, her doctor sat and listened to her queries and concerns for an hour. At the same time, her doctor explained to her how the breast augmentation procedure worked and other things that gave Amanda the assurance that she was in good hands.
After the consultation, Amanda writes that she was asked to sample some implants in order to check which suited her best. The doctor then asked her to think about her decision and come back when she is ready to undergo the procedure. Of course, it did not take much time for her to decide.
Unfortunately, Amanda was not able to narrate the details of her surgery, but she did mention about a video interview she released about her experience.
On the second part of her blog, Amanda debunks some myths about breast augmentation. She also shares about how she was now able to enjoy wearing blouses and dresses with a fuller chest. Her photos in this blog showed a drastic improvement in her figure.
