Breast Augmentation Gold Coast & Brisbane
Breast enhancement, also known as augmentation mammoplasty, was created to enhance the size of underdeveloped or small breasts. A breast enhancement is a surgical procedure that involves placing breast implants into the breast to increase the volume and projection of the breasts.
During your consultation, Dr Scamp will go over the known risks related to implants. He will discuss all of the options available to you at your consultation, depending on the look that you are trying to achieve, your lifestyle, personal preferences and what is suitable for your shape and build.
What you can expect during surgery
A breast enhancement is typically administered under general anaesthesia and is injected during the operation to assist with post-operative pain relief. Implant incisions are made above the crease; over the lower area of the areola or underneath the breast. A pocket is made under each breast into which the implants are inserted to achieve the desired aesthetic effect.
Dr Scamp will also check the appearance of the breast while sitting up and lying down, before completing breast augmentation surgery, at which time dressings or bandages are applied. A surgical drain is not usually needed.
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.
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 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.
