Breast Augmentation Surgery in Melbourne

Breast Augmentation Surgery in Melbourne: Procedure, Costs and Recovery

Breast Augmentation Surgery using Breast Implants is available from our top Group of Specialist Plastic Surgeons in Melbourne.  Breast Augmentation is essentially a breast enlargement procedure, although it is sometimes referred to, colloquially, as a ‘boob job’ (by Millennials). It is a very commonly performed surgical procedure in Melbourne and across Australia and the world, with the basic intent being to (a) increase the breast size, (b) give more contours to the cleavage area, or (c) enhance the upper body to balance out the lower body proportions.

Having larger or more shapely breasts can, for some women, leave them feeling more body-confident or feminine and attractive, especially in swimwear.  However, this sense of what is physically attractive is as much to do with cultural expectations as it is with personal preferences.  If you want to have larger breasts using breast implants via Breast Augmentation surgery, just be sure you’re choosing this for yourself – not to please anyone else – and that you understand the breast augmentation procedure, costs, recovery times and risks.

The first step to breast augmentation at our Melbourne Clinic is to schedule a consultation.  You can also request 3D visual imaging to assess what type of enlargement or breast implant size selection will meet your preferences for breast size increases.

But before you attend a consultation, be sure you download and read our Breast Augmentation Surgery guide (e-book). You’ll find the downloadable EBOOK links to our Cosmetic Surgery & Breast Surgery GUIDES, further down this page.

Breast Augmentation Surgery Using Breast Implants – Surgery Details, Recovery times and Costs

What is Breast Augmentation Surgery?

  • Breast Augmentation Surgery is a surgical procedure, primarily using breast prosthesis (breast implants) such as Motiva or Mentor.
  • It typically involves insertion of a silicone or saline breast prosthesis through a small incision made under the breast crease (in the inframammary fold) or through an armpit area incision.
  • Some more modern style breast implants (Motiva, for example) may allow for an even smaller incision line and smaller scar; but for most women, the scars are short or barely noticeable because the breast tissues cover them.
  • Treatments and silicon strips are also available to minimise the scars.

And are breast implants the only way to enlarge the breasts?

  • Breast Augmentation or ‘breast enlargement surgery’ typically does involve breast prosthesis, called ‘breast implants’ – browse our top rated Plastic Surgery blog for information on how long breast implants last and other articles that may be of assistance in your breast augmentation surgery research.
  • Breast Augmentation can also be performed, or enhanced, with fat transfer to the breasts.
  • However, fat transfer or fat grafting to the breast is limited for most patients because not all the transferred fat will ‘take,’ and only small increases are possible.
  • The fat grafting for breast augmentation procedures can also be time consuming and costly, leading many patients end up preferring breast implant based augmentations to get the size or shape they’re wanting.
  • Plus, with modern MOTIVA brand breast implants, your breast augmentation surgery can look and feel more natural than they ever have (so long as you don’t choose too large an implant size).  Read about the mini-breast augmentation procedure using small breast implants.

Surgery for Breast Augmentation: What’s involved

Breast Augmentation typically involves enlargement of the breasts through inserting breast implants into the breast area. They are usually placed in front of, or behind, the pectoral muscle, or a dual plane approach (combination of both). Cleavage shaping can also sometimes be enhanced, but there can be limitations to what cleavage you have in relation to your existing breast tissues and the distance between your natural breast tissues and your nipple areas.

 

Breast Augmentation Surgery with Motiva or Mentor Implants are available with our team of Specialist Plastic Surgeons in Melbourne.

Breast Augmentation Surgery options can appeal to women who have always had smaller breasts, or who once had fuller breasts that have lost volume and shape due to fluctuations in weight, pregnancy, breastfeeding or other factors.

  • Breast Augmentation can often reshape the breasts, as well as make then larger.
  • It can also be used to help correct breasts that are of unequal size or mal-positioned.
  • This procedure cannot correct severely drooping breasts, however, as sagging skin or excess skin and nipples with are very ptotic tend to require a Breast Lift, as well as an Augmentation, to appear fuller and more up-lifted.

An example of Breast Augmentation Surgery Results (Before & After Photos of Breast Implants) to improve the appearance of the chest and enhance the cleavage, is shown below.   Visit our Gallery for more Before & After Breast Augmentation photographs.

Breast Enlargement Surgery with Breast Implants, with or without additional fat grafting, can help to:

  • Increase the volume & size of smaller breasts.
  • Improve the overall breast shape & nipple appearance.
  • Restore fullness and firmness to breasts which may appear empty after childbirth or other lifestyle factors.
  • Even up breasts that are asymmetrical in shape or size.

It is important to note that even though Breast Augmentation is very popular across the world, it is still a serious surgery and should never be taken lightly.  Be sure you know the difference between a Plastic Surgeon vs a Cosmetic Surgeon.

  • Breast Augmentation Surgery using Breast Implants is a complex surgical procedure.
  • At Cosmetic Surgery for Women & Men, our Breast Specialist Plastic Surgeons go above and beyond a traditional Breast Augmentation to get you an overall improvement.

 Am I a good candidate for breast augmentation surgery?

  • If you have good skin health and are generally healthy, and have realistic expectations about what having larger breasts will (and won’t) do to your appearance, fashion choices and lifestyle – you might be a suitable candidate to proceed with a breast augmentation procedure.
  • It is very, very important you are a non-smoker and that you have good health habits including adequate nutrition and rest, as these habits aid your healing and recovery and can have an impact on your surgery recovery and scar healing processes.
  • Breast Augmentation Surgery can help to enhance the size and shape of your breasts.
  • This procedure typically appeals to women with smaller breasts who would like to increase the size and/or shape of their breasts.

Women with different sized breasts may investigate breast augmentation options, even if they have nicely shaped breast tissues, simply because they want MORE body balance or a slightly larger chest size.

  • Breast Implants often appeal to women who find their breast size does not match the rest of their body and would like for their physique to be more proportionate.
  • Breast Implants can also help mothers and those who have experienced weight loss or other lifestyle changes that have resulted in a smaller or ‘deflated’ breast size.
  • Breast Implant Surgery can also be helpful for women with uneven or asymmetrical breasts who would like to even up their breast size and shape.
  • To be considered a suitable candidate for Breast Implant Surgery, you must have realistic expectations about what can be achieved.
  • Beware, however, the tendency to choose implants that are too large for your body or your skin health, as they can increase your risk of experiencing premature sagging or bottoming out.

Reasons for choosing breast implants and augmentation surgery.

breast-augmentation-best-size-implant

Some of the reasons you may be exploring your Breast Implant options for Breast Augmentation include:

  • You are unhappy with the current size and/or shape of your breasts – you want a fuller breast area and more cleavage.
  • Your breasts are smaller than you would like, yet are not overly saggy or drooping. (If your breasts are sagging, or your breasts and nipples droop down towards the navel area, then a Breast Lift procedure with or without augmentation may be a more suitable procedure option.)
  • You have lost volume in your breasts and would like them to return to their previous size before pregnancy, breastfeeding or weight loss.
  • You feel limited in your clothing choices due to your breast size.
  • The size of your breasts doesn’t match the rest of your body and you would like your breasts to be more in proportion with your body shape and overall physique.
  • Your breasts are uneven or asymmetrical in size and/or shape.

 

Planning your Breast Augmentation Surgery: What is helpful to know

Statistics: Motiva Breast Implants for Breast Augmentation - Round or Anatomical, Textured or smooth?

  • There are many aspects to consider when planning for Breast Augmentation Surgery, including the breast implant size, shape, type & placement of your implants.
  • Your Specialist Plastic Surgeon will guide you in choosing the best implant and procedure for you, although you should have an idea of your options when it comes to breast implants.

A well-planned Breast Augmentation surgery can give you a more balanced look, the breast shape or size you desire, as well as help to minimise scarring.

What Breast Implant Brands are used for Breast Augmentation? Motiva vs Other Brands

Be sure to check what brand of breast implants your Surgeon uses as not all brands on the market are equal in reputation and longevity.

We use and recommend only quality, recognised implant brands including Motiva Breast Implants  or Mentor . These brands have a track record with Australian Plastic Surgeons of having durability, breast implant placement stability, longevity and breast shape control.

What Breast Implant Type are used for Breast Augmentation? Saline vs Silicone

Read our blog on types and sizes of breast implants including Motiva or Mentor manufacturers.

Saline Breast Implants are less commonly used for Breast Augmentation but are sometimes selected.

Saline Breast Implants are filled with sterile salt water. Some are pre-filled and others are filled during surgery. There are pros and cons to using saline vs silicone breast implants.  Your Surgeon will give you more information during a Breast Augmentation consultation. Phone us on (03) 8849 1444 to schedule your consultation with one of our highly respected Plastic Surgeons (fully FRACS qualified and operating in genuine Australian hospitals, with seasoned Anaesthetists to enhance your safety and comfort during and after the procedure).

Silicone Breast Implants are more commonly used for Breast Augmentation than Saline Implants

Silicone gel-filled breast implants are preferred by many women as they are believed to feel more like real breasts than saline implants. Both Saline & Silicone implants come in different sizes, shapes and textures.

Motiva brand implants tend to be known for a more natural, softer feel or appearance, and Motiva and Mentor are usually good choices for Implants in Australia – ask your Surgeon which type they prefer, and why – and be sure to download our information GUIDES to breast surgery as you do your breast augmentation surgery research and investigations on which Surgeon to choose.  (Confused? Call our Patient Care Coordinators on 03 8849 1444 to get your initial questions answered, or send an enquiry form).

What Breast Implant Shapes are used for Breast Augmentation? Round vs Anatomical Implants

breast augmentation - scars - where incision lines are placed, smaller-scars-after-breast-augmentation2

Round Breast Implants

  • Round implants can create soft, round and nicely proportioned breasts and are available in both a smooth & textured surface.
  • Motiva implants have a new type of texture that may have additional benefits in implant placement for shaping, and potentially complication risk reduction benefits for some patients (be sure you ask your Surgeon about the 14 Suggested Steps for performing safer breast Augmentation Surgery procedures to reduce complication risks such as capsular contracture or bottoming out).

Anatomical Breast Implants 

  • Anatomical implants tend to provide more contrast in shape between upper & lower parts of the breast.
  • They must have a textured surface to reduce movement within the breast pocket.

I’ve forgotten what type or size implant my previous Surgeon used – can you tell afterwards?

In women with moderate amounts of breast tissue, it can often be hard to tell what type of implant has been used.

  • When implants have been inserted well surgically, and have settled into their resting position – it can be difficult to differentiate between a round or an anatomical one.
  • They can both achieve similar results and no-one would guess. Implant selection is something, you as a patient and your surgeon will discuss and decide together. Everyone is different.
  • If you cannot access your existing medical records for an augmentation performed years ago, you can request an assessment of your existing implants to see if it’s time to remove or remove and replace them; or you might need a scan if you suspect a potential hardening of the implant area (capsular contracture) or a suspected rupture (cohesive gels are now used in modern implants) – OR in the case of saline implants – a potential leakage or deflation.

 

FAQs about Breast Augmentation:  “Which Breast Implant Surface is Best?”

Smooth vs Textured Implants: Comparison, Pros and Cons.

motiva-breast-implants - breast augmentation size changes - type-brand-size-choice

It’s really up to the patient and Surgeon as to which type of breast implant is going to be best for any particular patient goal or surgery result.

The predominantly preferred type of breast prosthesis in Australia is often the silicone implant, as it feels and looks more natural on most patients, can be used strategically for breast shaping (placement options), AND has desirable stability and longevity.

Smooth Breast Implant

Smooth surface have a softer feel and generally are less likely to cause ripples that could show through the skin.

Textured Breast Implant

  • Textured implants reduce the risk of implant movement due to the rough surface that adheres to breast tissue.
  • However, there are pros and cons to textured implants, so ask your Surgeon for details.
  • A new texture for modern breast implants is known as the nano-textured surface (Motiva).

What type of Breast Implant Position is best for a Breast Augmentation?

There are three common approaches for Breast Implant placement or ‘pocket’:

  • In front of the pectoral muscle
  • Behind the pectoral muscle
  • Partially behind the muscle (Dual plane)

Submuscular (Breast Implant Placement)

Placing the implant underneath the pectoral muscle allows the soft tissue to cover the implant and disguise it, therefore achieving a more natural result.

More often a surgeon will recommend to place the implant behind the pectoral muscle.

Subglandular (Breast Implant Placement)

If there is already a good volume of breast tissue present to hide the defined implant edges, your surgeon may recommend placing the implant in front of the pectoral muscle.

Each of these methods offer a different type of result. Your Surgeon will be able to recommend the best breast implant placement approach for you depending on your desired outcome.

 

Which Incision Location is best for inserting Breast Implants – under the breast or in the armpit area?

Inframmamary-periareolar-tranaxilliary-incision-points

The most popular location for a Breast Augmentation incision is under the breast near the fold. Transaxillary incision or ‘Armpit Incision’ breast implant insertion sites are typically used for patients with a history of scarring problems. This is also called an Asian Breast Augmentation because more pigmented skin types can be prone to keloid scar formations after having surgery for breast implants. Under the armpit, the scars may be less visible or fade into the natural skin folds under the armpit (they may be visible when the arms are raised, however).

An Inframammary Incision is under the breast (in the breast crease) – and is the most common incision line area for Breast Augmentation Surgery by a Plastic Surgeon

  • The most common incision which is made in the crease beneath the breast.
  • This provides the most direct access & is the most reliable approach for achieving a symmetrical result.

Transaxillary Incision (Asian Breast Augmentation)

This ‘armpit area’ incision is ideal for Asian breast surgery patients and those prone to keloid scarring. It involves incisions into the armpit.

Periareolar Incision

incisions-transaxillary-breast

This incision is placed around the lower half of the areola at the junction with the breast skin to ensure the scar is less visible. This method is not commonly used, as it is suggested that it may result in more complications or interrupt the function of the breast nipples (breastfeeding, for example, or nerve endings).

 

 

What is the Best Breast Implant Size to choose?

breast implant surgery for breast enlargement

Choice of implant size will vary from person to person and can depend on your body proportions & amount of breast tissue.

It is important to be realistic with your desired breast size and consider your surgeon’s advice on what will work best for you & your body in the long term.

Breast Augmentation Surgery Checklist

Before you decide on your Surgeon or proceed with Breast Implant Surgery, there are a few important questions to consider:

  • Is my preferred Surgeon a highly skilled, FRACS qualified & experienced Specialist?
  • Is my Breast Implant surgery going to be performed in a fully accredited Hospital?
  • Am I in good health and do I maintain a nutritionally healthy lifestyle?
  • Do I have realistic expectations about what Breast Implant surgery can actually achieve?
  • Am I choosing to have surgery for the right reasons and at the right time?
  • Am I able & willing to undergo an initial recovery period of approximately 4-6 weeks?
  • Do I have someone (a friend, partner or relative) who can assist me during my recovery; and am I patient to wait until all the swelling goes down before I see my final results?

How long does a breast augmentation surgery take?

How long will I be under anaesthetic while I have my breast augmentation surgery (or implant replacement surgery)?

breast augmentation implant surgery melbourne

The breast augmentation procedure itself generally lasts for 2-4 hours.  This will vary from patient to patient, however. It is performed while you are under general anaesthesia. Some breast augmentations (primary) can be performed more quickly, but if you need a breast lift, or are having a replacement of your existing implants OR have asymmetry you need corrected during your augmentation, the surgery might take longer.

Costs of Breast Augmentation (Melbourne Comparison)

Prices of breast augmentation that are advertised by some Surgeons can be misleading. There is the Surgeon’s fee (Plastic Surgeons are often more highly trained or qualified as Specialists with FRACS recognition, and they operate in hospitals rather than back rooms of clinics); plus the fees of the theatre/hospital and the Anaesthetist, post-surgery care and post-surgery garments, recovery aids and more that go into the costs of getting breast implants.

A Cost Quote for your Breast Augmentation Surgery is provided during or just after a confidential consultation. If you’re comparing quotes, remember what contributes to different costs of breast surgery in Australia – and choose your Surgeon wisely.  Sometimes cheap cosmetic surgery procedures can go very wrong, if less experienced doctors are used OR if you risk overseas procedures, for example, where you might not even meet your Surgeon until your Surgery day.  (In Australia, we have waiting times and cooling off periods to help keep you safe from sudden impulse decisions. But if you plan your surgery properly, you are more likely to have a good experience and know what to expect, including the cost of surgery).  At other clinics, you might be surprised to be told one price but find nothing else is included and you’ll be billed separately for everything else (like the anaesthesia, after care or garments).

If you’re comparing costs of Breast Augmentation Surgery in Melbourne, be sure you understand what the quotes include – and what will be billed as extra.

The costs or price quotes of having Breast Augmentation Surgery by our Melbourne Specialist Plastic Surgeons are inclusive, and will detail costs to cover:

Your Surgeon’s Fee including planning and follow up appointments

  • Planning, 3D imaging, Post-Surgery Follow up

The Breast Implant Itself (Breast Prosthesis)

  • Motiva or Mentor brands are available
  • Different sizes and shapes or textures are available
  • If you have asymmetry, you may require a different breast pocket, additional nipple surgery (nipple relocation or breast lift) or different sized implants – ask your Specialist Surgeon for details

Anaesthesia and Anaesthetist

  • Medications and General Anaesthesia are administered for your comfort during your Surgical procedure.

Decisions about breast augmentation surgery: The Details and What To Expect

The Breast Implant Incision

  • There are a number of surgery options and incision approaches to Breast Implant; surgical incision lines are marked on the patient before surgery (and great Surgeons are known to take extensive measurements and detailed surgical planning notes to help ensure a good result)
  • Your Surgeon will be a valuable resource to you in making your decisions and has decades of expertise in breast augmentation procedures
  • If you have already had breast augmentation surgery in the past (primary) this is known as a secondary or repeat surgery and may require different approaches or may have higher risks of scarring or bottoming out; be sure you don’t choose too large an implant
  • Allow your Surgeon to advise you on what your skin can handle, weight and size wise, in terms of the size of the implant you desire
  • To make an incision, after you are under general anaesthetic, your Surgeon and his or her team will cleanse and sterilise the skin, numb the chest area (which minimises discomfort for up to several days), and make the incision where they have marked this incision line earlier in your surgery process.

Inserting and Placing the Breast Implant

After the incision is made, your chosen breast implant is inserted into a precise surgical pocket either:

  • In front of the pectoral muscle
  • Behind the pectoral muscle
  • Partially behind the muscle (Dual Plane)

Closing the Incisions

  • At the end of the operation, your incision is closed with dissolving stitches placed deep into the skin surface.
  • This often means that no stitches will need to be removed following surgery, for most patients.
  • Our Surgeons also prioritise ‘No Drain’ procedures to give you a drain free recovery period whenever this is feasible (and in a standard breast augmentation procedure by a Breast Specialist, it is unusual for drain tubes to be used).
  • The suture (incision) line is covered with a water proof dressing and a soft crop top bra is fitted.
  • Sutures may vary from patient to patient and depending on what you require.

Recovery & Healing After a Breast Augmentation

what's normal pain after breast surgery?

  • You’ll be given clear instructions for post-operative healing & care, including what garments to wear and what else to do to maximise your surgical results, minimise scarring and facilitate your recovery processes.
  • You’ll have ready access to the Patient Care Team and/or to your Surgeon following your Surgical Procedure should you have any urgent questions or needs.
  • Although you will be able to see the results of your Breast Implant Surgery almost immediately, it can take up to 4-6 weeks for post-surgical swelling to resolve properly.

 

 


TIP: Keep your expectations realistic AND aim to choose the right Surgeon for YOUR needs: A FRACS membership plus decades of experience performing Breast Augmentation Surgery is a good place to start. DO follow ALL pre-surgery and post-surgery instructions to help optimise results.  Read about our FRACS Qualified Surgeons.


Frequently Asked Questions About Breast Augmentation Options and Procedures

best-swimsuit-after-breast-implants-bali-boob-

Does breast Augmentation Surgery hurt? Is it very painful to get breast implants put in?

  • Most surgery does involve discomfort and pain during the initial post-surgery healing periods.
  • It can be difficult to predict discomfort levels for each individual patient, as there are many variables to consider.
