Breast Enlargement |

Breast Augmentation

Breast implants are a great solution for women who desire to have a more voluptuous or defined cleavage.  

Augmentation mammoplasty or breast enlargement is a surgical procedure that restores or increases the volume, size and natural shape of your breasts in proportion with your body after weight reduction, pregnancy or ageing. Some women may also choose to increase the size of their breasts when they do not fully develop after puberty. 

Performed under a general anaesthesia, the process involves using silicon or saline breast implants to create the desired size in proportion with your body and improve the overall symmetrical shape. The choice of an implant size will be discussed at your consultation along with the desired shape [round or tear-drop shape], incision location and brand used for the procedure.

The most common incision is made in the crease of the breast and great care is taken to minimise scarring. On most occasions, dissolvable stitches will be placed deep into the surface of the skin.  

DOWNTIME: Overnight surgery. RECOVERY TIME: From two weeks, depending on the type of procedure you have. The sutures will be covered and a support bra will be worn during post-recovery while any swelling remains.

It is important to note that patients need to be over the age of 18 years before surgery is performed.

Our laser clinic offers a complimentary post-recovery CARE program which includes LED Light Therapy and a Fractional Laser Resurfacing procedure to help the healing process.


Introducing Dr Lionel Chang [MB BS FRACS] |

During your consultation, Dr Chang will discuss the important elements of the procedure including your desired shape and size, your hospital stay and the surgery. Additionally, Dr Chang will outline the expected recovery period and results following surgery. In some instances, a breast lift may also be recommended if you have lost considerable volume to the breast following weight loss or breastfeeding.
