Breast Augmentation

Everything You Need to Know About Breast Augmentation

Women are interested in breast augmentation (also known as breast implants or breast enlargement) for a number of different reasons. Some women notice their bodies have changed following major weight loss or pregnancy and others have always disliked their breasts or suffer from tuberous (cone-shaped) breasts.

If you are considering breast enlargement surgery it is important to remember that you are not alone. Many women are unhappy with the look and feel of their breasts and augmentation can lead to a life of greater confidence and self-assurance.

Scheduling an appointment with Dr Tavakoli will give you an opportunity to discuss surgical options and determine whether or not you are a suitable candidate for breast augmentation or an alternative treatment.

Experience that Matters: Performing the Most Breast Implants in Australia

It is important to note that “Bargain Boob Jobs” are typically performed by junior doctors with limited surgical experience. Seeking out the lowest cost facility will invariably lead to disappointing results, unnatural looking breasts and in many cases surgical mistakes which require costly corrective surgeries to repair.

There is a reason why our patients travel internationally and across state lines to have their procedures performed by Dr Tavakoli. With over 4,500 cosmetic breast surgeries under his belt there is simply to substitute for experience.

An Emphasis on Natural Looking Breasts

Dr Tavakoli works closely with each patient to craft a tailor made breast enhancement. He is particularly renowned for achieving natural looking breasts with minimal scarring.

According to Dr Tavakoli, the secret to well-augmented breasts is natural fullness with a soft sloping upper pole. Cleavage must be natural, without webbing and perkiness should be limited to allow a certain degree of droopiness to avoid the “fake” look. He is the industry leader in applying the Minimal Incision and Ultra Rapid Recovery Technique.

Round versus Anatomical (Teardrop) Implants

Dr Tavakoli utilises both shapes of implants and the shape that you choose will depend on your body type and desired look.

Most patients who opt for a round implant currently have well-shaped natural breasts and are looking for a straight-forward enlargement in all dimensions including the upper pole. Generally patients who choose anatomical shaped implants either wish to limit enhancement in the upper quadrant or currently have droopy or tuberous breasts.

Round implants come in the following profiles: Low, Medium (Moderate), High, Extra High, Ultra High

Teardrop implants are available in the same five profiles across three different bases: Short Oval, Long Oval, Round

Working Together to Manage Expectations

When talking about breast implants bigger is not always better. During the consultation phase Dr Tavakoli will recommend a suitable cup size based on the size of your frame as well as other restrictions such as skin quality, ethnicity, type of surgery (enhancement or restorative) and other clinical parameters.

The primary parameters that determine how Dr Tavakoli will tailor any particular breast augmentation are as follows:

1. Build and height
2. Current breast size, shape and symmetry
3. Nipple position
4. Skin quality & current stretch marks
5. Chest wall shape and dimension
6. New cup size: Under-proportion, In-proportion or Over-proportion augmentation

Utilising technology available exclusively at the Double Bay clinic, intra-operative implant sizing ensures all patients receive the ideal implant for their individual body.

Will My Scars Be Visible?

Dr Tavakoli’s patients experience rapid recovery from breast augmentation surgery as he specialises in the latest advanced scar minimisation techniques (minimal incision & minimal pocket bleeding).

It is important to realise that any surgical procedure will involve some scarring, but the rate of scar revision for unsatisfactory scarring in breast enlargement is less than 0.05%. While some patients are concerned about the location of their scars most patients are more concerned that their breast shape matches expectations.

Depending on the patient, one of two incision types will be employed to insert the breast implants:

1. Inframammary (breast fold) is the most popular as it heals very well and interferes less with breastfeeding and nipple sensation.

2. Periareolar (around the nipple) is particularly useful for some Asian and African patients with higher risk of keloid scarring.

Potential Risks & Complications

Risks and complications with breast augmentation may include bleeding, infection, asymmetry, keloid scarring, nerve damage and damage to the nipple-areolar blood supply (rare).

Hospitalisation is not required but patients will undergo a general anaesthetic when implants are placed under the pectoral muscle.

Discomfort, swelling, and discolouration of the breasts are to be expected for several weeks postop and patients generally return to most normal activities within 10 days. During this initial recovery period patients should avoid strenuous activity and not raise their arms above their head.

Driving, if done carefully, is possible 1 week postop and patients can return to non-physical jobs 7-10 days following surgery. Those with very physical professions may need to take 2 or even 3 weeks off depending on the type of work.

For exercise, walking is OK within one week, Lower body exercises can commence from 4-6 weeks, light jogging, Pilates and upper body from 12 weeks.
