Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

When considering breast augmentation surgery, your first step is to call Esteem Cosmetic Studio and schedule an in depth consultation with a specialist plastic surgeon.

1. Will I be a good candidate for breast augmentation?

The best candidates for breast augmentation are women who are looking for improvement, not perfection, in the way they look. Many women choose to have Breast Augmentation surgery to boost body confidence and to feel comfortable with the size and shape of their breasts. If you’re physically healthy and realistic in your expectations, you might be a good candidate for breast implants.

2. What are the types of Implants?

All breast implants are made of an outer shell of silicone elastomer (very strong synthetic shell) and are filled with either silicone gel or sterile salt solution (saline). Saline implants used to be considered as giving a more natural feel, but now there are many options of silicone gel cohesiveness allowing for a selection of suitable firmness.

3. What is the difference between round and tear drop implants?

Round implants add volume to the upper part of the breast giving a lifted look, while contoured (anatomical) implants give a more discreet look more in keeping with the natural shape of the breast.

4. What implant style would be best for you?

Detailed measurements of your breasts will be taken at your consultation. These measurements are necessary not only for narrowing down your implant choices but also to plan your surgery and ensure that the implants you eventually select are appropriate in size for your frame and that your breasts and nipples are correctly positioned over the implants and do not sit too high or too far out to the sides. Based on these measurements, you will be shown you the various implants that could achieve the look you desire.

We have a large range of implant profiles and sizes for you to try in a crop-top so that you can visualise and compare the likely degree of correction each can give you. Although the surgeon will guide you through the implant selection process, they will ultimately leave the final choice of size up to you.

5. Are there any risks?

Breast enlargement is relatively straightforward. But as with any operation, there are risks associated with surgery and specific complications associated with this procedure. Your surgeon will also discuss risk specific to you based on limitations of your anatomy.

The most common problem, capsular contracture, occurs if the scar or capsule around the implant begins to tighten. This squeezing of the soft implant can cause the breast to feel hard. Capsular contracture can be treated in several ways, and sometimes requires either removal or “scoring” of the scar tissue, or perhaps removal or replacement of the implant.

As with any surgical procedure, excessive bleeding following the operation may cause some swelling and pain. If excessive bleeding continues, another operation may be needed to control the bleeding and remove the accumulated blood.

A small percentage of women develop an infection around an implant. This may occur at any time, but is most often seen within a week after surgery. In some cases, the implant may need to be removed for several months until the infection clears. A new implant can then be inserted.

Some women report that their nipples become oversensitive, under sensitive, or even numb. You may also notice small patches of numbness near your incisions. These symptoms usually disappear within time but may be permanent in some patients.

There is no evidence that breast implants will affect fertility, pregnancy, or your ability to nurse. If, however, you have nursed a baby within the year before enlargement, you may produce milk for a few days after surgery. This may cause some discomfort, but can be treated with medication prescribed by our surgeon.

Other important considerations

  • Breast implants are not guaranteed to last a lifetime and future surgery may be required to replace one or both implants.
  • Breast augmentation requires regular examinations of your breast health and to evaluate the condition of your breast implants.
  • Always be breast aware post-surgery, have an ultrasound every two to three years to check that all is well with the integrity of the implant.
  • Pregnancy, weight loss and menopause may influence the appearance of augmented breasts over the course of your lifetime.

6. What should I consider when planning my breast surgery?

In your initial consultation, your breast augmentation surgeon will evaluate your health and explain which surgical techniques are most appropriate for you, based on the condition of your breasts ie tissue quality, skin laxity and skin elasticity. If your breasts are saggy, depending on the degree of sagginess, you may be recommended to have breast lift surgery.

Be sure to discuss your expectations frankly with our surgeons and be assured they will be equally frank with you. And, please ensure that you inform your surgeon if you smoke, vape or consume recreational drugs. We will need full disclosure of all medications, vitamins, drugs you are taking. Your safety will always be our number one priority.

7. What should I do when preparing for my breast implants surgery?

You will be given strict pre surgery instructions to prepare for surgery, including guidelines on eating and drinking, when to cease smoking or vaping. And when to cease taking certain vitamins and medications.

While making preparations, be sure to arrange for someone to drive you home after your surgery and to help you out for a few days. For the first week, you will need to have adequate rest to ensure an uneventful recovery.

8. What types of anesthesia will be used?

Breast enlargement surgery is mostly performed under general anesthesia, so you’ll sleep through the entire operation. Sometimes depending on the patient’s medical history, the anaesthetist may recommend twilight sedation.

Anaesthetists are fully qualified medical doctors who hold a degree in medicine and spend at least two years working in the hospital system before completing a further five years (or equivalent) of accredited training in anaesthesia culminating in being awarded a diploma of fellowship of the Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists (ANZCA), which can be recognised by the initials FANZCA after their name.

9. What happens in the breast augmentation surgery?

The method of inserting and positioning your implant will depend on your anatomy and your breast augmentation surgeon’s recommendation. The incision can be made either in the crease where the breast meets the chest or around the areola (the dark skin surrounding the nipple).

Every effort will be made to assure that the incision is placed so resulting scars will be as inconspicuous as possible.

Working through the incision, your breast surgeon will lift your breast tissue and skin to create a pocket, either directly behind the breast tissue or underneath your chest wall muscle (the pectoral muscle). The implants are then centred beneath your nipples.

The surgery usually takes one to two hours to complete. Stitches are used to close the incisions, which may also be taped for greater support. A gauze bandage may be applied over your breasts to help with healing.

10. What happens after my breast augmentation surgery?

You’re likely to feel tired and sore for a few days following your surgery, but you’ll be up and around in 24 to 48 hours. Most of your discomfort can be controlled by medication prescribed by our surgeon.

You will attend the rooms one week after surgery for a dressing change.

Your stitches, if not dissolvable will come out in a week to 10 days, but the swelling in your breasts may take up to three months to subside.

You will be given specific post operative instructions. These instructions will include information pertaining to what you can and cannot do in terms of exercise, housework, driving and how often to wear your post surgery bra.

11. How long before I get back to feeling normal?

You should be able to return to work within a few days, depending on the level of activity required for your job. Follow our doctor’s advice on when to begin exercises and normal activities. Your breasts will probably be sensitive to direct stimulation for two to three weeks, so you should avoid much physical contact. After that, breast contact is fine once your breasts are no longer sore, usually three to four weeks after surgery. Your scars will be firm and pink for at least six weeks. Then they may remain the same size for several months, or even appear to widen. After several months, your scars will begin to fade, although they will never disappear completely.

12. What will my new look be?

For many women, the result of breast augmentation can be satisfying, even exhilarating, as they learn to appreciate their fuller appearance. Regular examination by our surgeons and routine ultrasounds post surgery at prescribed intervals will help assure that any complications, if they occur, can be detected early and treated.

Your decision to have breast augmentation is a highly personal one that not everyone will understand. The important thing is how you feel about it. If you have met your goals, then your surgery is a success.
