ABOUT PERTH COSMETIC SURGERY Your Professional Perth Surgery for Breast Augmentation Procedures
Breast implants or breast augmentation are one of the most popular and commonly performed cosmetic plastic surgery procedures, involving the insertion of a safe gel pocket for aesthetic appeal. Breast implants increase volume, shape and contour for a more attractive look. The ideal age for the procedure is 18-years-old and over, as the tissue is often still growing and developing up until this point. Perth cosmetic surgeon Dr Pham and his team have significant experience in performing breast augmentation procedures and believe it is important to seek a professional with the right advice on the best type, shape and size of insert to achieve your ideal look.
Dr Pham uses VECTRA® 3D camera and Sculptor software to produces a three-dimensional photograph of the breast and chest and able to simulate the expected average results of the proposed surgery.
Benefits of Breast Implants
There are many reasons Perth women undergo breast augmentation and you can discuss your personal reasons with your surgeon. Common benefits of breast implants include the following:
- Improving contour, shape and development
- Increasing size and volume
- Creating a more proportionate figure
- Improving volume after pregnancy, nursing, trauma, resection or weight loss
- Balancing significant size and shape asymmetry, where one side is different from the other
Taking the First Step
The first step for breast augmentation is an initial consultation with Dr Pham, our cosmetic surgeon, at his Perth clinic. During the initial consultation, you can discuss your reasons for implantation, the shape, size and type of implants you desire and any questions you may have about the procedure. It is important to discuss your detailed medical history, any allergies and medications you are taking and whether you are planning on having children in the future. During the initial consultation Dr Pham will conduct an examination of the area and will take into account your personal requirements, skin tone, shape, size and positions when recommending the best solution. If your bust is sagging you may require a breast lift or mastopexy in conjunction with the breast augmentation.
Dr Pham aims for a more natural result with breast augmentation, achieved through his significant experience in providing the right solution to fit each woman’s specific physique. Dr Pham avoids breast implants that look false and unflattering with an obvious visible outline by ensuring the implant is not too high or too large. The size, shape and position of the implants are important in creating natural-looking enhanced busts that are in balance with the body. A size ‘C’ or ‘D’ cup is often chosen for women requiring a more natural result.
Considerations before the Procedure
There are several elements to consider and Dr Pham will provide advice on the best solution to suit you:
- Type: Silicone gel (used in 95% of cases) or Saline
- Size: cup size of the implant
- Shape: more rounded or tear drop
- Texture: important to the way the inserts will move under the skin
- Position: under the muscle or over the muscle depending on the desired look
- Insertion: under the armpit (axiliary), under the bosom (inframammary) or around the areola
Nowadays implants are very safe with minimal complications but it is important to seek advice from a professional and experienced cosmetic surgeon in Perth for the best results.
Breast Augmentation Procedure
Before surgery, Dr Pham will go over any questions and make markings on the areas. The Breast Implants Surgery is performed under general anaesthetic in hospital and takes about 1-1.5 hours. Depending on the above considerations, the implant is inserted under the muscle or over the muscle, through the armpit or under the bosom. The incisions from surgery are closed with fine sutures that leave minimal visible scarring. The recovery period after breast augmentation is a couple of weeks but usually pain will dissipate within one to two weeks. Most patients are back at work within 7 – 10 days.
