Have You Always Wanted Larger Breasts?

Do you want your natural breasts to look fuller? Do you feel flat chested or out of proportion? Have you always wanted larger, natural-looking breasts? Do you desire better cleavage? Are your breasts uneven or misshapen?

Breast Augmentation

Do You Wish You Had Larger, Natural Breasts?

Many women equate their beauty and femininity with the look and size of their breasts. Smaller breasts that leave us looking and feeling flat chested can be a source of embarrassment or ridicule. And, in some case, genetic issues can cause our breasts to be out of proportion, misshapen or even malformed, in the case of tuberous breasts.

You may find you have difficulty in finding bras that fit, or dresses that suit your smaller breasts or flatter chest. Perhaps you find yourself buying padded or push up bras to get the same desirable cleavage as your friends.

If this sounds like you, you might want to consider Breast Augmentation Surgery. Breast Augmentation – also known as Breast Enlargement, Mammoplasty or Boob Job – enlarges the breast using breast implants. It is an extremely popular, well-regarded surgery that get you looking and feeling amazing in no time. Modern techniques mean that you will be back at work in no time, with minimal scarring.

Breast Augmentation seeks to refine, enhance, and reshape your breasts while maintaining a natural look and feel. It leaves you with a more feminine silhouette and better cleavage. Your procedure will involve choosing appropriately sized implants to suit your needs and desires. Nipple and Breast Lift surgeries are often combined with Breast Augmentation in order to ensure the most natural looking breasts possible. You may also like to explore Fat Grafting to your Breasts in combination with Breast Augmentation, Breast Lift or Nipple surgery to create a natural look and feel.

Breast Augmentation

Patients see many improvements thanks to Breast Augmentation, including:

  • Larger, fuller, and more shapely breasts
  • Better cleavage
  • Corrected Nipple Size
  • Reduces Breast Ptosis
  • Improved Breast Asymmetry, Tuberous Breasts or other genetic issues
  • Increased confidence
  • Breast feeding has left your breasts feeling empty or sagging

Your Breast Augmentation Procedure will be customised to suit your needs and your body. However, all surgeries will take into account the following:

  • Your existing breast tissue
  • Position of the breast and nipple
  • The health and elasticity of your breasts
  • Your underlying chest muscles
  • Desired shape and size
  • Your choice of implant size, shape, texture, and type

Breast Implant Options

Did you know there are a variety of breast implant options? You have the choice between silicone or saline implants, round or anatomically shaped, and smooth or textured.

Saline implants are often described as having a “water bed” feel. Some even report a slight ripple effect that can be seen through the skin. This can be remedied to an extent by using smooth surfaced, round implants that are overfilled (within manufacturer specifications) creating a firmer feel. Should an implant rupture, it will deflate and the saline easily absorbed by the body.

Silicone implants have a lower incidence of rippling than saline implants thanks to the consistency of silicone gel. They have a more natural feel, designed to mimic breast tissue. However, unlike saline implants, silicone implants will not be absorbed by the body and can cause issues with hardening of the breast or capsule contracture.

Breast Augmentation

Breast implants come in a range of shapes and sizes, meaning you can choose almost any size for your breasts. This range of choice means you and your surgeon can choose the best size for your body and desires.

Breast implants also come in different shapes – round and anatomical. Round breast implants come in a variety of textures and, should they rotate in the breast pocket, won’t affect the shape of your breasts. Anatomically shaped breast implants are tear drop shaped and often give you a more natural look. However, if an anatomical implant rotates in the breast pocket, it will need to be repositioned to restore the correct appearance.

Finally, implants come in two different surfaces, smooth and textured. Smooth surfaced implants have a softer feel and are easier to place in the breast. However, textured implants reduce the risk of implant movement and allows the breast tissue to adhere to the implant.

What About Breast Augmentation Scarring?

You must remember that all surgery will result in scarring in one form or another. Breast Augmentation surgery is no different. Your level of scarring will depend on a variety of factors, including incision methods and genetic disposition to scarring.

Dr. Robert Drielsma specialises in the use of the “Lollipop Incision” technique that aims to give you the most natural result while reducing scarring for the best possible cosmetic result. Following your post-surgery procedure carefully will also help reduce your final amount of scarring.

What Downtime is There for Breast Augmentation Surgery?

Breast Augmentation is performed in an accredited hospital, under general anaesthetic by Dr. Drielsma. The operation lasts around 2 hours, though this can change depending on each patient. Dr. Drielsma specialises in no drain surgery and you will be able to go home around 3 hours after surgery.

You will be able to go to work after a week but it is recommended you avoid exerting yourself or going to the gym for at least 6-8 weeks until the bruising and swelling reduces.

When will I see Results?

Swelling can take up to 6-12 months to fully subside and for your breast implants to settle into their final position. However you should see improvement in the months immediately after your surgery.

What Complications are There?

There are possible complications with all surgical procedures and these will be discussed with you during your consultation. Complications with Breast Augmentation done by accredited Plastic Surgeon are rare.

Some patients may develop a firm layer of scar tissue around their implants which can make the implant hard or painful – also known as “capsular contracture”. This can cause breast asymmetry and may require a secondary, corrective procedure. Nipple sensation can be increased or decreased but will improve with time.

Will I Be Able to Breast Feed?

It is important to remember that not every woman can breast feed, even without breast surgery. However, most patients should be able to breastfeed after surgery. Be aware that, due to hormonal changes associated with pregnancy, that your breasts may droop or sag and require a corrective Breast Lift at a later date.

What is the Cost of Breast Augmentation?

The cost of Breast Augmentation varies from patient to patient and surgeon to surgeon, depending on what you want to achieve with your augmentation. It is important that you always do your homework when looking for a Plastic Surgeon. You should be happy with the quality of service and the experience of your chosen surgeon for the price of surgery you are being offered.

Be aware that cheap, overseas surgery is dangerous and most often leads to the need for expensive corrective surgery. Don’t risk rupture, rejection, or infections by using an accredited Australian surgeon.

What About Breast Screening?

Breast implants cause very little, if any, interference with mammography. However, it is important you discuss your risk of breast cancer with your Plastic Surgeon and GP, especially if you have a first-degree relative with a history of cancer. All women who have had breast implants should inform their radiographer so tests can be adjusted as needed.

What Should I Bring to my Consultations?
