Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure to increase the size and/or alter the shape of a woman’s breasts through the use of an artificial implant.
It is usually done to balance a difference in breast size, to improve body contour, or as a reconstructive technique following surgery.
In Sydney and in some parts of the world, breast enlargement surgery is constantly performed on women for various reasons.
Breast augmentation is one of the most commonly performed cosmetic procedures around the world. This has increased in popularity every decade since it was first performed. Over the decades that it has now been perfomed, breast implant has been shown, by multiple statistical studies, to be safe, with no increase in the rates of breast cancer.
Breast augmentation surgery is most commonly performed as a day procedure. It may be performed under general anaesthetic, or under local anaesthetic and sedation. Our practice has a preference for general anaesthetic, although both options are available. There are advantages and disadvantages to both forms of anaesthesia. These would be discussed at consultation. We perform our surgery at an accredited private day surgery and hospital. No drains are placed in routinely if it is the primary procedure, so the patient goes home comfortably on the same day, with a supportive bra.
There are two main types of implant contents currently being used as breast implants. These implants either contain saline (sterile salty water) or silicone (like thick Turkish delight gel). Most surgeons around the world have a preference, as we do, for silicone implants, as they last longer, and have a more natural feel.
Silicone implants are available in various shapes and sizes. They are also available with various covering shells over them – smooth, textured, or foam (Brazillian implants). Each of these have their specific advantages and disadvantages, which would be discussed at length at consultation. The consultation would involve a close discussion of all of the issues that may be involved, and quite some time is taken to ensure that the correct implant, and the correct size that fits the patient’s body shape, is selected. We consider that correct sizing is sometimes of a higher priority that the routine surgery.
Breast augmentation surgery is safe, and has a very high satisfaction rate from patients. Dr Kirby is a very experienced Sydney cosmetic surgeon who achieves excellent results, and high satisfaction from her patients. As one of a handful of Sydney female cosmetic surgeons, she offers an all female theatre team to heighten the comfort of her patients.
