Breast Augmentation & Implants – Burswood
For women who, for personal reasons, feels that her breasts are too small, or not in proportion with the body, undergoing breast augmentation can be the answer. Using breast implants to restore the shape, size, and overall appearance of the breasts is a sure way to boost a woman’s confidence and improve her quality of life.
We encourage our patients to take an active role in not only discussing their expectations and desired breast appearance but in communicating more specifically about the specific size, shape, how much cleavage they want and even the nipple position to achieve natural results. No two women are exactly alike and so there is no one implant or surgery that will suit each and every patient.
Types of Implant
There are several types of implant on the market. You and your surgeon will decide on the most suitable implants for you during the initial consultation which will based on your desired goals and appearance, amount of breast tissue, and the preference of your surgeon. Breast implants are made of silicone rubber filled with either medical grade silicone gel or a sterile saltwater solution called saline. Each of these implants has its own pros and cons. The saline implant has a more natural feel than saline implants. It can also be inserted through a smaller incision such as through the navel. Silicone implants are preferred for those who had their breasts removed surgically to avoid spreading of cancer cells, or those with bony chest walls or who have thin skin. The differences between the two implants are best discussed with our highly trained cosmetic surgeons and they will review and recommend the best option for you. Our surgeons will provide you with before and after photos for you to visualize what will happen to your breasts.
Sizing and Satisfaction
With several years of experience in the cosmetic field, our team of highly trained surgeons and registered nurses has helped thousands of women who seek a safe and effective breast augmentation. Our surgeons have developed surgical techniques in not only measuring the chest wall of patients accurately but in sizing the most suitable implants to provide them an indication of the end result that they will achieve. This has resulted in satisfied patients who had not only improved their breast contour, but their overall well-being.
Safety of Breast Augmentation and other Breast Procedures
Breast augmentation is a well-known procedure and is considered as one of the safest. In fact, there are thousands of breast procedures performed worldwide and breast augmentation is one of them. To focus more on safety, our surgeons conduct pre-treatment consultation wherein each of our patients will be thoroughly assessed. During this process, our surgeon will conduct a brief medical history which will tackle any disease that you experience. Certain diseases such bleeding or clotting disorders, cardiovascular disease, and hypertension can increase one’s risk for developing complications and may delay the process of healing.
Breast Enlargement Procedures/Approaches
Surgical incisions will be discussed during the initial consultation. The location of the incision is important in concealing scars related to the surgery. The following are the approach you can choose from:
1. Under the Breast/Inframammary Approach – this is the most common approach used for implant placement. The incision is created in or adjacent to the natural crease of the breasts. This approach requires the least operative time for breast implant placement.
2. Around the Nipple/Periareolar Approach – this technique provide patients with the least conspicuous scar.
3. Under the Arm/Transaxillary Approach – this approach places the incisions in the armpit. This avoids scars on the breasts, however, it can still be noticeable when the patient lifts her arms.
4. Through the Belly Button/Transumbilical Approach – this involves placement of the breast implants through the belly button. This approach is exclusively used for saline implants.
If you’re considering breast augmentation, our highly specialized team can provide you specific information on how your breast implants will be placed.
