Breast Augmentation & Implants Geelong
If you feel less like a woman because of small and imperfect breasts, then undergoing breast augmentation Geelong procedure through the use of implants may be the solution to your problem. Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure designed to enhance the breast profile. During the operation, specific implants are placed underneath the breast tissue and often behind the pectoral muscles.
Deciding to seek advice about breast procedures is a very personal decision and is often based on a number of reasons. Women may opt for a breast procedure if their breasts aren’t developed as much as they desire them to, or if their breasts change its size after weight loss or pregnancy, or sometimes breasts may have a noticeably sagging appearance. If these sorts of changes have developed, they can be addressed by breast augmentation but the operation may be more complicated. Speaking to one of our experienced and highly qualified surgeons will help ascertain if your desired procedure is right for you to help you achieve your ideal size and shape.
What are the different breast implant placements?
There are two commonly used approaches for placement of breast implants: placing the implant in front of the pectoral muscle and placing the implant behind it. Both of these techniques yield a different type of result, and your surgeon will advise you regarding the best approach for you depending on your preferences or desired outcome.
Placing the implant underneath the pectoral muscle (submuscular) allows the soft tissue to cover the implant, thus giving you a more natural result. More often, your surgeon will recommend this kind of technique. Recovery in the first couple of days can be a little uncomfortable when the implant is placed behind the pectoral muscle, but the outcome is usually more natural. If there is already a good volume of breast tissue in the patient, your surgeon may recommend placing the breast implant in front of the pectoral muscle (subglandular). This procedure often has a minimal recovery period and is quicker to perform as the muscles are not disturbed during the process.
What are the risks of breast augmentation?
All kinds of operations carry some risks, and undergoing breast augmentation is no exception.For those who are young, fit and healthy patients, the risk of complications occurring is usually small. General complications associated with the procedure include post-operative bleeding, thickening of scars, bruising, infection and pain. Specific complications include implants that sit too high or low, and the breasts appear noticeably different after surgery. It is best to discuss this aspect of your surgery with our surgeon at your first pre-operative consultation. He or she will be able to take you through the risks and potential complications related to breast augmentation as the possibility vary from patient to patient.
All breast implants have an average life span of 10 to 15 years. When gel filled implants rupture, a capsule contracture (hardening) is likely to occur. When saline filled implants rupture and deflate, a significant reduction in breast size occurs and is generally visible. In case of implant rupture, an MRI scan is ordered by your doctor to help understand what has happened. Usually, your surgeon will remove the broken implant and most patients are asked to have the implant replaced with a new one through a secondary surgery.
