Mini Breast Augmentation Mammoplasty

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” breast augmentation mammoplasty is a fast-growing trend.

What is a mini breast augmentation mammoplasty?

With over 6000 breast augmentation mammoplasty procedures under his belt, Dr Kourosh Tavakoli is one of Australia’s qualified and experienced breast surgeons. In Dr Tavakoli’s hands, a mini breast augmentation mammoplasty does not just mean a small implant but rather an implant that fits the patient’s chest and breast in a way that is proportionate and more subtle than tradition breast surgery.

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 appropriate 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.

The incision is located in the Inframammary breast fold (IMF).

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.
