Breast Implants are one of the world’s most popular surgical procedures. Essentially, this involves surgically placing an implant behind each breast to increase bust size, correct sagging, increase firmness and fix any issues with asymmetrical or disproportionately sized breasts. The operation takes one to two hours and can be performed with both general anaesthetic or I/V sedation that puts you to sleep for the procedure, and local anaesthetic to eliminate pain afterwards.
Are Breast Implants Right For You?
It’s not medically possible to fully determine your suitability for breast implant surgery without a personal consultation session. But generally there are a number of indicators that mean breast implants are right for you.
- Do you regularly feel that your breasts are too small?
- Are clothes that fit well around your hips too large at the bustline?
- Do you feel self-conscious wearing a swimsuit or form-fitting top?
- Have your breasts become smaller or lost firmness after childbirth or weight change?
- Is one of your breasts noticeably larger or smaller than the other?
If you can identify with any of these, our doctors can help. These are all relatively common issues and even if you decide not to pursue a surgical treatment path, a consultation session with the experts at Australia Cosmetics Clinic can help you manage these issues. In addition to this, Australia Cosmetic Clinics is one of few locations to utilise Vectra 3D imaging technologies, which means you can get a clear and realistic picture of how any implants will change your breasts without needing to commit to anything.
Breast Implants includes:
The incision is the surgical cut where the actual implant is inserted into the breast. The type of incision is mostly up to you, and is primarily dependent on where you’d like the scar. Some scarring is unavoidable, but choosing an incision that suits your lifestyle and dressing habits can make it functionally invisible. Should you have a preference, all our surgeons have extensive experience with each incision type.
Breast crease incisions
are the most common choice. They provide direct access to relevant surgical areas and conceal the scar in the breast crease. Generally the only people who will ever see the scar are you and your partner.
Through the armpit
is a good choice for people who don’t want any scars on their breasts at all. The incision is tucked away in an armpit crease and cannot be seen when your arms are down. It might be slightly visible while wearing a strapless dress, but is far enough from the breasts that few people associate it with augmentation surgery.
Around the nipple
is the least common approach in Australia, but remains popular in Europe and South America. Incisions in this area tend to heal extremely well so any scars are very well concealed, but it’s been known to result in increased changes to sensitivity, and people with smaller nipples might not be viable candidates for this choice.
Choosing the right incision: Dr. Shaz Musavi
Breast augmentation implants can be placed either in front of or behind the layer of muscle that underlies breasts.
In front of the muscle
placement has one main drawback – it’s generally not suitable for people with thin frames or too little existing breast tissue. This is because the edge of the actual implant might be visible if it’s placed too close to the surface. Other than that, it’s generally quicker, easier, less painful, has a faster recovery time and is well suited to people looking for more lift and fullness from their breasts.
Behind the muscle
placement is a more versatile option, suitable for almost everyone. The extra layer of muscle tissue on top of the implant helps conceal it further and reduces any rippling effects. The downside to this option is that it’s more intrusive, requires deeper incisions and takes longer to heal.
Breast implants come in dozens of different sizes and profiles. We understand many women have their heart set on a particular implant size. While we provide the full range of implant sizes (up to 615cc) and profiles, not every size will be suitable to your body type. Your surgeon can advise you of your available size options according to your physiology and desired cosmetic look.
It’s important to remember that larger sized implants don’t immediately equate a larger cup size. Your cup size will depend upon your weight, height, chest shape and the size of your existing breasts. Smaller implants can actually result in a more appealing and fuller look. It’s best to discuss sizing options with your surgeon during your consultation.
