Choose Dr Terrence Scamp for your Breast Enlargement Mammoplasty at our Marina Mirage practice on the Gold Coast.

Breast Augmentation Mammoplasty

Breast implants surgery, also called breast augmentation mammoplasty or “breast job,” is designed to increase the size of small or underdeveloped breasts. People who seek this surgery often wish to restore and enhance their breast volume if it has decreased as a result of having children or weight loss. Breast augmentation mammoplasty is a surgical procedure that inserts implants into the breasts. This is to increase their size and volume per the individual’s personal wishes and proportions.

This procedure is suitable for women in their late teens and older who have small or unbalanced breasts that they wish to improve and correct. Speak to breast augmentation surgeon (mammoplasty surgeon) Dr Terrence Scamp on the Gold Coast to learn more about this procedure and whether it can help you achieve your desired breast size.

Breast Augmentation Consultation Process

Before the breast augmentation surgery, a patient consultation will be completed to discuss the procedure. This will involve an evaluation by Dr Terrence Scamp to decide the right shape and size of the breasts for the patient, as well as the incision method and implants that will be used. Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, as a qualified health practitioner, Dr Terrence Scamp will thoroughly explain in detail.

Since not everyone is a good candidate for breast implants, Dr Scamp will also evaluate your health and medical needs. You should express your desired outcomes from the procedure and ask any questions you may have. You should also make sure to bring up any medical concerns that could impact your suitability. Dr Scamp will then advise whether you are a candidate, and if so, we can begin planning your surgery.

Dr Terrence Scamp exclusively uses Motiva implants and will discuss shape and size options that may suit your case. The implant that is selected for the patient will depend on the desired size of the breasts and the patient’s body shape, as well as what will produce the desired result.

The details of breast implants surgery are different for every patient. This is due to their different natural body proportions and desired outcomes. In order to provide an accurate estimate of the costs involved, we will first need to meet with you to discuss these details.

During your consultation, we will discuss the necessary techniques and the type of breast implants you will require based on your desired results. Dr Scamp will explain your options and guide you on which implants may work best according to your needs and the cost of the new implants. You will need to choose your preferred implant size, shape, and texture in discussion with Dr Scamp. As well as this, we will discuss the costs involved in anaesthesia, hospital fees, and the surgeon’s fee.

Another factor is the aftercare required after surgery, including dressings and support garments. Only after discussing these factors can we provide you with an accurate and personalised cost estimate. You will be able to ask further questions about pricing during this consultation.

For more information about the cost of getting breast implants, speak to Dr Scamp in your initial consultation.

Surgery Process

To insert the implant into your breast during the procedure, Dr Scamp will make small incisions to create an opening. The incisions are made where there are natural creases on the skin. This is to minimise visible scarring as a result of the procedure. During the consultation, the patient and Dr Terrence Scamp will choose the best incision site for implant insertion. We will discuss this thoroughly at the consultation, considering your goals, preferences, and the natural condition of your breasts.

In addition, pockets have to be created in your breast to hold the breast implants. The sub-glandular placement involves creating a pocket between the chest muscle and the breast tissue. Whereas the sub-muscular placement inserts the implant into a pocket positioned behind the chest wall muscle. Again, we will discuss this thoroughly at the consultation. We will make the decision depending on the natural shape and size of the breasts, as well as the elasticity of the skin.

Breast implants surgery procedure

Breast augmentation mammoplasty is a surgical procedure that will require the patient to go under a general anaesthetic. This will ensure the patient is not in pain or discomfort during the surgery. Dr Terrence Scamp will create small incisions into the chosen insertion area and create the pocket in the breast that was discussed at the consultation. Once the breast implants have been inserted and positioned in the breast, the small incisions will be stitched up. From receiving the general anaesthetic to the final stitching, the procedure may last one to two hours in total.

After surgery, it is normal to experience discolouration, swelling and soreness in the breasts and surrounding tissues. This is due to the volume increase created by the breast implants, which requires the body to adjust to this change. Pain relief can be issued to ensure minimal discomfort for the patient. We will apply a dressing will to the skin where the incisions will begin to heal. Ensuring this area is clean is important to avoid any infections that will delay a healthy recovery. We will discuss post-surgery garments in your pre-surgery consult.

Some downtime will be required to promote a successful recovery from breast implants (breast augmentation mammoplasty). Still, most patients are able to return to work and normal light activities within one week of surgery. After two weeks, this can include light exercise, such as walking and using an exercise bike. To encourage a successful recovery, you should avoid strenuous and activities that require using your arms for up to three weeks. Additionally, chest exercises and using weights should be postponed for up to four weeks. The full recovery from breast augmentation mammoplasty surgery normally takes between four to six weeks. However, this depends on individual patient circumstances. Dr Terrence Scamp will discuss your specific requirements directly with you post-surgery.

Recovery and aftercare

It is important to consider the aftercare involved after getting your breast implants. The recovery period differs for everyone, depending on their procedure and health. However, there are some general guidelines that every patient must follow in order to avoid increasing their post-surgical risks. Breast surgeon Dr Terrence Scamp will ensure you have the requisite information and support after your breast augmentation mammoplasty.

Immediately after surgery, you will remain in the hospital to be monitored. You can expect dressings on your surgical sites and drainage tubes to remove any excess fluid. It is important to have a support person there with you (such as a friend or family member) who can drive you home and help you in your initial recovery.

General recovery guidelines after getting breast implants include:

  • Care for your incision sites
  • Avoid smoking and alcohol
  • Take adequate time off work
  • Avoid strenuous activities
  • Wear your support garment
  • Eat a healthy diet and stay hydrated
  • Get plenty of rest
  • Contact Dr Scamp if any concerns arise

Most patients will have to take several weeks off work. However, the amount of time off depends on your surgery, health, and what kind of work you do, which you can discuss with Dr Scamp before your procedure. Additionally, you cannot perform strenuous exercise for at least six weeks or until advised.

Recovery is an integral part of your surgical process. If you have further questions about what aftercare your surgery may involve, speak to Gold Coast Surgeon Dr Terrance Scamp in a consultation.

Risks and complications

Another consideration before getting breast implants is the risks. Breast augmentation mammoplasty, like any other procedure, comes with associated risks of complications. Many patients have a positive overall experience and do not experience these complications. However, knowing that they can occur is important, as this will help you weigh your options.

Having your surgery performed by a qualified surgeon with experience in your chosen procedure will minimise, but not eliminate, your risk. Dr Scamp will talk you through the risks involved. Then, you can be fully aware and capable of making an informed choice for your body.

The following are the risks of breast implants surgery (augmentation mammoplasty):

  • Infection
  • Poor wound healing
  • Implant rupture
  • Implant leak
  • Capsular contracture
  • Fluid accumulation
  • Anaesthesia reactions
  • Unwanted outcomes
  • Poor scarring
  • Asymmetry
  • Changes in sensation
  • Inability to breastfeed
  • Further surgery

If you experience any of the above or any other adverse effects after surgery, please contact us immediately.

Results of breast augmentation mammoplasty

Breast augmentation mammoplasty aims to enhance the chest with the use of breast implants. Each patient will have a different treatment plan and different results. However, generally, patients desire to attain a breast shape that is more aligned with the proportion of their bodies and as symmetric as possible.

Dr Terrence Scamp will discuss with you the appropriate shape and size of breast implants according to your natural body frame and desired results. The final shape is a combination of your breast shape and the breast implant’s shape. If the breast is small, the shape will largely be that of the implant. Dr Terrence Scamp will also discuss the position of your scars and scar management options.

Patients should understand that breast implants are not for everyone, and each person will get a different outcome. This means that what suits another patient may not be a good option for you. The best way to find out what result you can achieve with breast augmentation mammoplasty is to speak to a qualified surgeon such as Dr Scamp.
