Breast Augmentation,
also know as a breast enlargement, involves the placement of implants behind each breast to enhance shape and volume.

Your surgeon and CE Support Staff will give you as much time as you need in order to answer any questions that you may have.

Make sure that you are informed and understand all your options prior to making the decision to proceed.

Why Breast Augmentation?

You may feel that your breasts are too small. Your breast size may not be proportional to the rest of your body. You may want to balance breast size and shape.

Or you may want to improve contour and fullness following pregnancy, breast-feeding, and/or weight-loss.

Which Implant Placement?

Implants can be placed under the breast tissue or under the chest wall muscle.
Implants under the muscle have a more natural shape and a lower chance of hardening. However, if you do a lot of upper-body gym work, implants are best placed under the breast.

Breast implant placement may depend on the amount of breast tissue available to hide the implant. If you have minimal breast tissue, you may benefit from under-the-muscle placement. This may provide more cover, preventing visible rippling.

Which Incision?

Implants can be placed through an incision under the areola, in the crease under the breast, or via the armpit.

The incision placement may be influenced by your clothing preferences, the shape of the implant, and/or the size and placement of the implant. A visible scar concern may influence your choice.

Which Type Implant?

At CE our preferred implants are Allergan Natrelle and Mentor. Both are premium silicone gel implants.

Silicone implants have been shown to be biocompatible, reliable, flexible, and easy to sterilise.

Saline implants, which are filled with salt water rather than elastic gel, can be associated with rippling that can be seen through the skin.

Silicone implants can offer a more natural, breast-like result. Their casing can have a smooth or textured surface. We offer both surface options.

Textured implants are said to minimise the scar tissue that forms around them, which may cause hardening. They are also associated with reduced implant movement.

Smooth implants are said to be more natural to the touch and less likely to cause visible rippling.

Which Implant Shape?

Shapes vary from round to tear-drop shape.

Round are available in low and high profile.

Tear-drop are available in various widths, heights, projections, and sizes.

Round implants are more suited to patients who are happy with their breast shape but are looking for a size increase. They give more upper-pole fullness to your breasts.

Tear-drop implants give a much more natural shape to the breast. The more projected lower-half lifts the nipple. These implants may be more suited to patients with slightly droopy breast associated with post-pregnancy, breast-feeding, and/or weight-loss.

During a private consultation, your doctor will help you select the most optimal implant depending on your chest size and breast base measurements.

Key Procedure Details:
Procedure Name Breast Augmentation
Procedure Type Surgical
Body Location (where procedure is performed): Breast
How the Procedure is Performed:

Step 1 Anaesthesia

Medications are administered for your comfort during the surgical procedure. Your doctor will recommend the best choice for you.

  • Under the pectoral muscle (a sub-muscular placement)
  • Directly behind the breast tissue, over the pectoral muscle (a sub-mammary/ sub-glandular placement)

Step 2 The incision

Incisions are made in inconspicuous areas to minimize visible scarring. You and your plastic surgeon will discuss which incision options are appropriate for your desired outcome. Incision options include: along the areolar edge (peri-areolar incision), the fold under the breast (inframammary fold) and in the armpit (axillary incision).

Incisions vary based on the type of breast implant, degree of enlargement desired, your particular anatomy and patient-surgeon preference.

Step 3 Inserting and placing the breast implant

After the incision is made, a breast implant is inserted into a pocket either:
The method for inserting and positioning breast implants depends on the type of implant, degree of enlargement desired, your body type, and your surgeon’s recommendations.

Step 4 Closing the incisions

Incisions are closed with layered sutures in the breast tissue and with sutures, skin adhesive or surgical tape to close the skin.
Over time the incision lines will fade. The quality of scar depends on many things, including your genetics, exposure of your body to nicotine, and infection.

Step 5 See the results

While a breast augmentation yields larger breasts right away, the final results may take a few weeks as the swelling subsides and the skin stretches. Some patients may need to wear a bandeau to help shape their breasts, especially if they have underlying asymmetry or very small breasts to start with. Incision lines may take several months, even a couple of years, to fade. To achieve optimal breast augmentation results, follow your surgeon's post-operative instructions and return for follow-up visits.

Preparation Required:

6 weeks before surgery

Cease smoking prior to your surgery, as soon as possible as it increases the risk of complications; apply moisturiser or Vitamin E cream daily to your desired treatment areas; stop any recreational drug use.

4 weeks before surgery

Moderately exercise, such as walking, will improve your general fitness and aid your recovery. In addition, stop using tanning products 4 weeks prior to your surgery.

2 weeks before surgery

Stop taking blood thinning and anti-inflammatory medications; stop taking regular non-prescription and alternative medicines, including vitamins, herbal treatments, and supplements.

Follow Up:

During your breast augmentation recovery, your breasts will be wrapped in gauze dressings and an elastic bandage or support bra will minimsze swelling and support the breasts as they heal.

Immediately after surgery, you will be taken into a recovery area for close monitoring. You may be permitted to go home when you are stable for discharge, typically after an hour or so.

Before leaving, you will be given specific postoperative instructions for your breast implant recovery and a follow-up appointment with your surgeon. You may also receive medications or a prescription. Your prescribed medications may include pain pills and an antibiotic to prevent infection.

Wear your support garment (a bra or elastic band, called a bandeau) around the clock as instructed by your surgeon. Some surgeons may ask patients to cleanse the incision sites and apply ointment, while others will ask their patients to keep tape or a bandage on. Instructions vary, so it's important to follow all your surgeon's directions carefully.
Because it is possible to bleed into the pockets around the breast implants for the first several days, take it easy until you have permission to increase your activity level. Acute pain typically subsides after one to five days, but you may experience soreness and swelling for a few weeks. Resume exercise and normal activity according to your surgeon’s directions.
Before & After

What should I discuss during my consultation?

You should discuss your desired look and lifestyle with your surgeon. He or she can then inform you of all the available surgical options to best suit your body type and proportions. Your surgeon will take your medical history, conduct some routine examinations and take measurements to determine whether you are a suitable candidate for your desired procedure.

Am I a good candidate for breast augmentation?

Our surgeons evaluate each of our patients on a case-by-case basis. The best candidates for breast augmentations are typically in good physical health but want to improve the size or shape of their breasts. Good skin tone and firm, elastic skin also helps to achieve the best results.

How much time do I need to take off work?

We recommend a week of rest and recuperation following your breast augmentation surgery. Patients that have normal desk jobs can return to work slightly earlier (within 3 – 5 days) but should expect to feel fatigued and swollen for several days.

How do I know what I’ll look like after my Breast Augmentation?

Once you have a firm idea about your desired look, your surgeon will go through the different surgical options with you to determine the best way to get your desired cosmetic result for your lifestyle.

There are many factors that affect what your breasts will look like after surgery. These include your natural anatomy, the location of the incisions and the type, size, shape, texture and placement of your implants.

We’ve had many happy patients who are happy to share their pre and post op photos. You can find feedback and photos from past patients on our Facebook page and also online at plastic and cosmetic surgery forums such as The Plastic Surgery Forum.

I’m from interstate/overseas. Can I still have a Breast Augmentation?

Yes, we regularly perform surgeries for our interstate and international patients and usually accommodate this within the same visit to Sydney or Southport. There are a number of steps you can take in advance of your procedure to help streamline the process: • Send pictures of your desired treatment areas to our “clinics“ so that our surgeons may assess whether you’re a suitable candidate for breast augmentation. All photos will be treated confidentially. • If you’re suitable, we’ll contact you to book your consultation. This is best organised the day before your surgery to minimise accommodation and travel costs. For further information regarding travelling to our facilities for your procedure, please contact our clinics and one of our friendly Cosmetic Consultants will assist you. You’ll be required to stay interstate for a further 48 hours before being able to return home. Your local GP can then assist you with general aftercare enquiries. Follow-ups can be conducted via email, but feel free to call our clinics if you have any specific concerns.
