Breast Augmentation Gold Coast & Brisbane
Breast enhancement, also known as augmentation mammoplasty, was created to enhance the size of
underdeveloped or small breasts. Breast Enhancement Surgery can also renew and increase your breast volume if it has reduced due to having children.
Implant incisions are made above the crease; over the lower area of the areola or underneath the breast.
What you can expect after breast enhancement surgery
Recent research has shown that the inframammary incision is associated with the least risk of complications, so this incision is preferred.
Following surgery, you should wear a dressing on the operated area. Swelling and discolouration will occur and will slowly diminish. You should avoid participating in strenuous activities for approximately three weeks, especially ones where you need to use your arms a lot.
During your consultation, Dr. Scamp will go over the known risks related to implants. The final shape is a combination of the implant shape and your breast shape. If your natural breast is small the implant will form a majority of the breast shape. Round implants are often used to project the breast and sit higher than teardrop shaped implants, which form a more natural looking shape.
Breast implants will not get in the way of a scheduled mammogram exam. Following Breast Enhancement Surgery, make sure you choose to a technician who has experience in doing mammography on augmented breasts. The presence of breast implants requires additional X-ray views and modified mammographic techniques.
