In some circles a small implant has always been in vogue, however Dr Tavakoli explains that the trend towards a small implant is ever increasing.
Popular amongst models, actresses and those in the public eye, the “mini boob job” is the fastest growing trend in breast augmentation surgery today.
What is a mini boob job?
With over 6000 breast augmentation procedures under his belt, Dr Kourosh Tavakoli is Australia’s leading breast implant surgeon. In Dr Tavakoli’s expert hands, a mini boob job does not just mean a small implant but rather an implant that fits the patient's chest and breast perfectly without any element of enhancement.
How is this achieved?
During your consultation with Dr Tavakoli, he will take precise measurements of your breasts to get an idea of breast implant choices. However, the real implant selection takes place during the surgical procedure with the use of intra-operative sizers. Dr Tavakoli exclusively uses unlimited intra-operative implant sizers to determine the best possible implant for the patient's breast and chest footprint. This method of sizing takes into account rib wall curvature and the skin's ability to expand ensuring the most natural looking implant is chosen.
The incision is located in the Inframammary breast (IMF) and is usually imperceptible with time.
In some patients with chest wall deformity or low tissue coverage, fat grafting may also be used to provide implant coverage, disguise irregularities, or to add volume to a part of the breast.
