Gel filled Implants are used in over 99% of breast augmentation procedures in Australia. A new, cohesive form of silicone gel was recently developed and is now used in the new generation implants. Because the gel is cohesive, meaning it sticks together in a predetermined shape, it minimises the risk of dispersal should the implant rupture.
You have an option of a rounded implant or a tear-drop implant. Round implants tend to give you a more rounded, full and elevated look, whereas the tear-drop implants tend to give a more natural, softer look with a naturally sloping upper pole.
Breast Implants can be placed either under the breast tissue or partially under the muscle of the chest wall (pectoral muscle). The placement depends on your pre-existing breast shape and size, the amount of tissue in your upper chest, the amount of physical activity you do and the size of implant you wish to have.
You have three different options which are mostly up to you. 1. In the breast crease 2. Through the armpit 3. Around the nipple. All three approaches can achieve excellent results. Your plastic surgeon can discuss these with you at the time of your consultation to determine the most appropriate approach for you.
In either a shared private hospital, or our own private hospital.
The operation takes 1 to 2 hours, depending on the incision, placement and size of implants.
Optional Local or General anaesthetic.

No they will not as the breast implants do not affect the breast glands and ducts.
