Breast Augmentation by SKIN CLUB Cosmetic Doctors
There are two ways of performing breast augmentation. That is, through fat transfer and with the use of breast implants.
Breast fat transfer involves the use of autologous fat or fat tissues harvested from the patient herself. Breast implants, on the other hand, uses medical-grade materials inserted in the breast area to achieve the enhancement that patients desire.
Here are the most prevalent types of breast implants:
This type of implant is typically filled with sterile saltwater. Saline implants are approved by the Food and Drug Administration or FDA as safe for women who are at least 18 years old.
This type of implant uses silicone gel which offers a natural feel to breast tissue. Just like a saline implant, a silicone implant is FDA-approved as breast augmentation material. However, this is recommended for women 22 years or older.
This is a form-stable implant. In which case, even if the gummy bear implant shell breaks, it continuously retains the breast shape. The consistency of the silicone used for this type of implant is thicker compared to silicone implants.
A round implant offers a high-profile projection making the breast appear fuller than the use of a gummy bear implant. And because of its round shape, there is a low chance of it rotating out of place.
This type of implant offers the most natural movement process for breast implant pockets. However, palpable or noticeable rippling may be visible within the underlying layers of the skin.
These implants tend to produce scar tissues that will hold the implant in place. It also helps decrease any risks of having a tight scar capsule.
Just like any other cosmetic surgery, patients should consider certain factors before getting a breast implant surgery
Before going through breast implant plastic surgery, it is best to book a consultation with your trusted plastic surgeon in Melbourne.
During your consultation, you will meet with one of the best plastic surgeons in Melbourne. At this time, your surgeon will ask you about your preferred treatment, whether breast implants or fat transfer. Afterwhich, he or she will ask about your expected outcome including the size, shape and overall upper body profile.
After hearing your preferences, your surgeon will evaluate the condition of your breasts and skin, as well as your overall proportions. He or she will then create a diagnosis and discuss it with you in detail.
In case any or all of your preferences may not work with your body stature, your surgeon will thoroughly explain why it is so. If you are amenable to his or her recommendation, your surgeon will give you a price quotation of the cost of surgery.
Surgical procedures such as breast augmentation is a very intricate process. Thus, before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner. You may consult with a breast specialist plastic surgeon or your trusted cosmetic surgeon in Melbourne.
Indeed, breast implant size can be customized. During your initial consultation, surgeons typically ask the volume that the patient wants to add during the breast augmentation procedure. Patient preference is an important gauge in achieving the most optimum results.
If, however, the size that the patient prefers may seem unsuitable for her overall profile, the plastic surgeon will provide recommended option sizes to the patient. The surgeon will then help the patient understand the possible results of each option.
Breast augmentation is typically performed under general anaesthesia. This will be administered by a licensed anesthesiologist to ensure a comfortable and virtually pain-free procedure.
It is important that during the consultation, the patient discloses any allergies that she may have, especially concerning anaesthesia. This will allow the surgeon to find the right type of anaesthetic that will work well with the patient.
Women who have the following concerns can be good candidates for breast augmentation:
Generally, you feel like you need to boost the size or shape of your breast, you may book a consultation so plastic surgeons can help assess if breast augmentation is an ideal cosmetic procedure for you.
Breast augmentation procedures offer the following benefits:

Both shapes of implants offer a natural-looking appearance for the breasts. However, round implants provide more fullness on the upper areas of the breast. Most patients prefer this shape because once inserted, it also exudes a slight projection in the lower area of the breast. And most of all, they hardly displace themselves because of their shape.
Teardrop shapes, on the other hand, create a projection in the lower breast. Somme patient profiles are most suitable for this shape. The only setback to this is that teardrop implants tend to move or rotate. Thus, may need a separate surgery to fix or correct the displacement.
In essence, a breast lift is different from breast augmentation. However, both procedures aim to enhance the appearance of breasts.
A breast lift primarily works to revitalize drooping breasts caused by childbirth, genetics, the process of ageing and weight fluctuations without the need to modify their size. Breast augmentation, on the other hand, is a plastic surgery procedure that aims to add volume and enhance the shape of breast.
Breast augmentation in Melbourne offers varied costs to patients. However, on average, the cost of this breast surgery starts at $7,450.
The cost is dependent on many factors including the professional fee of your specialist plastic surgeon as well as that of your anesthesiologist. The use of an accredited hospital or clinic facility also costs a certain amount. The costs of surgical materials and tools are also computed against the total price of the procedure.
During your consultation, you may ask your surgeon about the approximate costs of the procedure including the doctor’s fees and all auxiliary charges.
Depending on the patient’s condition and the type of implant to be used, incisions differ in location, style and length.
Here are the most common types of incisions applicable for breast surgery:
This incision technique is best used for breastfeeding moms. The cut is made in the crease underneath the breast and the implant is inserted behind the mammary glands. The inframammary cut allows the patient and surgeon to choose the best implant option for the most optimum results.
This offers a semicircular incision made encompassing the nipple area which may result in scarring. Needless to say, this type of incision is the least favourite of patients as well as surgeons. It also requires cutting through the breast in creating the implant pocket as well as inserting it.
Generally, surgeons give priority to the preferences set by patients. Thus, if you prefer to have breast augmentation surgery through fat transfer, your surgeon will consider this and determine if it is the most ideal procedure after a comprehensive assessment.
If, however, your preferred procedure is not in consonance with your breast structure, your surgeon will help you understand why it is so. He or she will also explain in detail how his or her recommended treatment can help achieve your enhancement goals.
Since this surgical or invasive procedure carries risks, before proceeding it may be best to ask your surgeon about the possible risks and complications that may occur.
Some of the risks that may arise after a breast augmentation surgery include:
In most cases, these risks are thoroughly explained during your consultation. It is also advisable that you ask questions to ensure that your surgeon is able to address them before proceeding with breast plastic surgery.
Yes, it is highly recommended that you visit your cosmetic surgeon in Melbourne 2 weeks following the treatment. During this time, your surgeon will evaluate the conditions of your new breasts and ensure that you are in good health.
In case there are adverse post-operative effects, they can be addressed immediately. In case you feel some breast tissue numbness or if the placement of implants seems to have a faulty position, your surgeon can correct them right away.
Immediately after the plastic surgery, you may feel some swelling and mild bruising on the treatment sites. However, these downtimes gradually resolve on their own within the next 24 to 48 hours following the procedure.
After your recovery period, just like in any other cosmetic surgery, patients should expect the results that they are aiming for. After all, it is the primary reason why you went through the breast enlargement procedure. That is, to enhance the size, shape, contour and appearance of your breasts.
SKIN CLUB Cosmetic Doctors offers the best breast augmentation procedures in Melbourne. Thus, you can expect safe, effective and reliable results.
After your breast augmentation procedure, your surgeon will suit you up with a compression garment. Make sure to wear them according to your post-operative care instructions. Your surgeon will provide a list of DOs and DON’Ts that you should comply with diligently.
By doing so, you can maintain the optimum results of your breast enlargement surgery for a long period. In case you feel any discomfort, always contact your surgeon immediately. You may also visit the hospital or clinic for prompt and proper attention.
Breast augmentation recovery typically lasts for about 4 to 8 weeks. However, it varies from one patient to another considering that each person is unique. While one patient can recover for less than 1 month, others may recover for more than 3 months.
This depends on the coping mechanism of the patient, her skin laxity, the type of breast augmentation procedure and the type of incision employed.
Yes. For breastfeeding mothers, the placement of implants behind the mammary glands will ensure that it will not interfere with the flow of milk for their little ones.
