The Results of Breast Augmentation Mammoplasty in Sydney

Breast augmentation mammoplasty in Sydney – how long does results last?

Are you interested in undergoing breast enlargement (augmentation mammoplasty) in Sydney? If so then you’ve probably wondered about the results and how long it’s going to last. If you haven’t then it’s certainly a factor that you need to consider before deciding whether to push through with the operation. Breast augmentation mammoplasty after all represents a significant investment and one that requires much thought if only to make the most out of the results.

Now breast augmentation mammoplasty in Sydney should always be performed by an experienced and qualified breast surgeon. However, the result of such an operation isn’t exactly permanent and the breast implants used for the operation generally last 20 years at most.

Just like all things, such implants are subjected to “wear and tear” (no pun intended) as women go about their daily lives. Hence the durability of a breast implant can vary from one patient to another. This means the longevity of results will also vary.

Wear and tear in breast implants

Wear and tear in implants used for breast augmentation mammoplasty in Sydney typically start out as small cracks on the outer shell. Women generally won’t have any problems even then as the body has a natural tendency to secure the implant by surrounding it with a biological seal. In the case of saline-filled implants, this seal helps prevent the liquid from spreading throughout the body in the event of a leakage.

Breast surgeons recommend having your breast implant checked once you get past the 10 year mark to check on signs of breast implant problems.

Now with silicone gel breast implants, leakage isn’t at all a problem as there is no liquid involved in filling the implant. Such an implant is generally the implant of choice for most reputable breast surgeons like our very own Dr. Tavakoli.
