How to increase breasts with hyaluronic acid

An excellent aesthetic treatment for breast augmentation without surgery is the application of hyaluronic acid, also known as Macrolane, which consists of giving injections to the breasts under local anesthesia, and the results can be seen right at the end of the treatment session.

This procedure confers breast enlargement, but little by little the product is reabsorbed by the body and the breast returns to its initial size in an average time of 12 to 24 months. After this period, you can choose to perform a new procedure or opt for a definitive treatment, such as the silicone implant.


This treatment can cost from R $ 15,000.00 to R $ 50,000 reais, depending on the plastic surgeon and the quantity of the product used, which can be from 80 to 270 ml. As it is an invasive aesthetic treatment, it can only be performed by specialist doctors, in aesthetic clinics or hospitals.

Risks of hyaluronic acid injection in the sinuses

The injection of hyaluronic acid in the sinuses is safe, but scarring and fibrosis can occur when the procedure causes a lot of inflammation, which can even be a risk for the formation of cancer.

Some risks and complications that may arise are:

  • Bruise;
  • Infection;
  • Changes in breast or nipple sensitivity;
  • Ache;
  • Irregularities of the contour and shape of the breast;
  • Discoloration of the skin;
  • Swelling;
  • Damage to nerves, blood vessels or muscles;
  • Allergy to hyaluronic acid;
  • Redness, itching and pain at the injection site.

In addition, in case of pregnancy after the procedure, the injection of hyaluronic acid can cause difficulty in breastfeeding, when the product is not fully reabsorbed until the baby is born. One of the ways to reduce risks and complications is to perform these surgeries in cosmetic centers with good plastic surgeons.

How is recovery

Some important precautions after this procedure are:

  • Take the painkillers and anti-inflammatories prescribed by the doctor;
  • Rest and avoid raising your arms above the shoulder line for a week, as you do to comb your hair, for example;
  • Having someone to help around the house for the first few days.

This treatment can be useful for women who want breast augmentation, but are still in doubt about the implant placement, or who cannot perform cosmetic surgery, such as breast augmentation, which is with the silicone implant.

In addition, there are natural ways for breast augmentation, which can be useful in some women, such as exercising or having a diet rich in estrogens, for example, which are not as effective in enlarging the breasts, but can help some women to feel better and more confident.
