Breast Enhancement Surgery from an Industry Professional on the Gold Coast
Breast enlargement, also called augmentation mammoplasty, is designed to increase the size of small or underdeveloped breasts. Surgery can also restore and enhance your breast volume if it has decreased as a result of having children.
The incision for placement of your implants can be made underneath your breast, just above the crease; around the lower edge of your areola (the pigmented skin surrounding your nipple); or in your armpit. A pocket is created for the implant either behind your breast tissue of behind the muscle between your breast and your chest wall.
What you can expect post breast augmentation
Recent research has shown that the inframammary incision is associated with the least risk of complications, so this incision is generally preferred.
Following surgery, you may wear a dressing. There will be some swelling and discolouration that will gradually disappear. You should not engage in vigorous activities, especially using your arms, for up to three weeks. You should be able to return to work within a week or two.
There is a great deal of scientific evidence supporting the long-term safety of breast implants. During your consultation, Dr Scamp will discuss with you the known risks associated with implants. The final shape is a combination of your breast shape and the implants shape. If the breast is small, the shape will largely be that of the implant. Round implants can look a bit more fake, while anatomical (“Tear Drop”) implants can look more natural.
If you are in the appropriate age group for mammographic screening, having breast implants will not change your recommended exam schedule. Following surgery, be sure to select a technician who has experience in mammography of augmented breasts. The presence of breast implants requires modified mammographic techniques and additional X-ray views.
