What can you expect when undergoing breast augmentation mammoplasty in Australia?

There is a lot of uncertainty surrounding what to expect in breast augmentation mammoplasty surgery, and this often stems from a lack of knowledge about what the procedure actually involves.

Setting expectations in breast augmentation mammoplasty surgery

Now your first step in breast augmentation mammoplasty is to go through the consultation process with an experienced 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 recommend that you cease certain habits like smoking and alcohol consumption which may hamper the results of the operation.

Breast augmentation mammoplasty in Sydney is often carried out in independent surgical facilities under the influence of general anaesthetics to minimise discomfort during the operation. Incisions are then made to create a breast pocket to fit the breast implant.

Your breasts may be sore immediately after the operation and some discomfort and pain is to be expected which may persist for about 2 to 3 weeks. The breasts may 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.
