The Best Breast Implants in Sydney

Are you looking to benefit from some of the best breast implants in Sydney? Now when it comes to such implants, women have a lot of options in front of them. Choosing the right breast enlargement implant will ultimately depend on a lot of factors like patient anatomy, lifestyle, current breast shape/size as well as the results desired. Breast implants cost can be rather significant not to mention the total cost of undergoing such a procedure (surgeon’s fee, anaesthetic cost, facility fees, medications, etc).Women thinking of undergoing a breast augmentation procedure ought to make sure that they make the most out of such an investment.

Options in breast enlargement implants

If you want to get the best breast implants in Sydney then you should know that these implants come in a wide range of sizes, shapes, texture and profiles to distinctly suit a patient’s needs. Hence there is not one single breast implant out there that could universally be perceived as the best but rather it’s all about matching the desired results with the right breast implant along with the recommendations of your breast surgeon. Let’s go ahead and take a closer look at your options in a breast implant:


“Profile” pertains to the degree of forward protrusion in breast implants. Low profile breast implants are generally wide and flat. A medium profile breast implant is characterised by a small diameter and protrudes further out to the front. High profile breast implants on the other hand features the highest protrusion among all other breast implant profiles along with a very narrow diameter. The latter is ideal for women with very narrow chest walls (a common trait among petite women) as it yields the most “bubbly” appearance.


Indeed breast implants come in different sizes and an important factor to getting the best breast implants in Sydney is to choose the perfect size for your body. Breast implants generally come in two types – silicone gel breast implants and the saline breast implant type which is filled with saline water during the breast augmentation procedure according to the desired size. Reputable breast surgeons like our very own Dr Kourosh Tavakoli often prefer the use of silicone gel breast implants as it’s safer with fewer risk of complications and presents no danger in terms of leaks and ruptures which is known to happen with saline breast implants.

Now breast implant size is measured in volume (cubic centimetres). Selecting the right size of breast implant is usually the most difficult step for women interested in breast augmentation. It’s not uncommon for patients to go back and forth across different sizes over a long period of time. Dr Tavakoli can help you select the perfect breast implant size for the desired result. In choosing the best breast implants in Sydney, Dr Tavakoli always recommends going for something a little bigger than the actual size desired. Breast implants tend to shrink a little due to compression especially when inserted under the chest muscles.


Breast implants can either be anatomic or round in terms of shape. Breast implants of the latter type are symmetric while the anatomic variety offers more projection and volume on the lower half of the breast creating a “tear drop” effect which is preferred by women looking for a more natural look. Most patients however prefer the full appearance of round breast implants.


Breast implants can either be textured (rough) or smooth in texture. Breast implants initially came out with a smooth surface and it wasn’t until capsular contracture became a growing concern among a significant number of patients that textured breast implants were developed. Textured breast implants help reduce the possibility of capsular contracture and pocket migration. However such implants may cause rippling or wrinkling in some patients especially those who experience significant weight changes after the operation. Based on his experience handling over 3000 breast implant operations, Dr Tavakoli ultimately prefer and recommend the use of textured breast implants for most patients especially for women athletes. Textured implants have been around for more than 30 years and present the lowest risk of complications according to his vast clinical experience making it a good option for getting the best breast implants in Sydney.

So there you have it – a few of the most important factors to consider when choosing the perfect breast implant. During your consultation with Dr Tavakoli, patients will be given the opportunity to check out the different breast implant options available in the market as well as try on different sizes.
