Setting Expectations for Breast Augmentation in Sydney

What can you expect when undergoing breast augmentation in Australia?

If you want to achieve a fuller and more attractive breast size, then there’s no better way to do it other than undergoing breast augmentation in Sydney. What can you actually expect out of it though and what is the procedure like?

Despite breast augmentation in Australia being a highly effective and reasonable cosmetic surgical operation, a lot of women are still fearful of such procedures and most of that fear stem from the fact that women are fairly clueless about what to expect in breast augmentation surgery. If you’re really keen on undergoing breast enlargement in Sydney, it’s important to set the right expectations if only to avoid disappointments in terms of what the procedure has to offer.

Setting expectations in breast augmentation surgery

Now your first step in breast augmentation is to go through the consultation process with a good and reputable breast surgeon in Sydney. You can expect such a surgeon to thoroughly assess your needs and provide recommendations about which direction to take on the course of your operation – breast implant type, incisions, surgical techniques, etc). Your surgeon will evaluate your complete medical history and may prohibit you from taking certain medications or cease certain habits like smoking and alcohol which may hamper the results of the operation.

Breast augmentation in Sydney is often carried out in independent cosmetic surgical facilities under the influence of general anaesthetics to prevent any discomfort during the operation. Incisions are then made to create a breast pocket to perfectly fit the breast implant. Such incisions are made to be as inconspicuous as possible and then skilfully sutured up.

Your breasts may be sore immediately after the operation and some discomfort and pain is to be expected which may persists for about 2 to 3 weeks. The breasts may awkwardly sit higher than normal on the chest area along with a noticeable size difference but both problems will eventually settle down throughout the recovery process.

Complete recovery can take as long as 12 weeks during which patients must abstain from any contact sports and activities. Walking can resume within a week and it’s often possible for patients to resume work after a week or two. As it is with any surgical procedure, one must be watchful of any complications which would require a prompt response by your breast surgeon.
