The process for Breast Augmentation Surgery in Sydney

One of the first thing that people ought to know about breast augmentation is that it’s no trivial matter in terms of investment. Breast augmentation price can be fairly steep especially when you want it done right, but it is certainly not as much compared to cost of such procedures decades ago.

More about breast augmentation procedures

It involves the use of anaesthesia – as a surgical procedure, breast augmentation does involve the use of anaesthetics to put you to sleep. It is up to the anaesthetist and plastic surgeon to decide on the type and method of application which could either be general or intravenous anaesthesia. The decision will ultimately affect surgical risks and recovery times hence it would certainly be in a patient’s best interest to opt for an experienced and highly reputable cosmetic surgeon for the procedure if only to ensure safe results.

Incisions – as a surgical procedure, incisions are a crucial and necessary step in breast augmentation. A good cosmetic surgeon is expected to employ techniques that minimise scarring. Performing the required incisions in inconspicuous areas of the body is a sound practice which includes:

– The arm pit, transaxillary incision

– Around the nipple area, periareolar incision

– On the base of the breast, inframammary incision

The kind of incision to be made for the procedure will depend according to a patient’s anatomy, implant shape and size as well the overall results desired. A cosmetic surgeon strategically installs and secures the breast implant on the desired position which could either be above or below the pectoral muscle or behind the breast tissue. Layered sutures on the breast tissue are then used to close the incisions using surgical tape or skin adhesives that naturally dissolve along with the healing process.

Results of a breast augmentation procedure

Perhaps the best thing about breast augmentation is that it instantly yields visible results. Granted it does take some time to recover from but proper care and following post-operative instructions to the letter will greatly speed up the healing process. Any visible incision will disappear over time with proper cosmetic surgical techniques.

Of course it is important to not settle for anything less than the services of an experienced and highly accomplished cosmetic surgeon. Breast augmentation price may seem significant with such surgeons but they more than make up for it with safe and excellent results, not to mention Breast revisions can be very costly if the first breast augmentation procedure was done incorrectly.
