Breast Augmentation (Breast Implants)
Breast augmentation surgery using implants is a popular way to improve the size, shape and symmetry of the breasts. This procedure is designed to enhance a woman’s figure by producing a proportionate form and correcting minor imperfections that might make her self-conscious about her appearance. Many women find a successful breast augmentation improves their self-confidence as well as how they look in clothing. Breast augmentation is a commonly performed cosmetic surgery procedure in Australia today. With the ability to choose implants to fit with a patient’s body structure, breast volume and shape, this surgery aims to provide natural, long-lasting results for the right patients.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
- WHO IS THE RIGHT CANDIDATE FOR BREAST IMPLANTS?
Women who want larger, fuller breasts may benefit from breast implant surgery. This procedure also effectively corrects asymmetrical breasts. If you are planning on getting pregnant in the future, it might be wise to postpone your breast enhancement surgery since pregnancy and breastfeeding can alter your results. Suitable candidates for this procedure should not have any active infections or be currently pregnant or nursing. Those with a malignancy in the breasts will also be disqualified until the malignancy is treated.
- WHAT SIZE IMPLANTS SHOULD I CHOOSE?
The same implants can give different results to different women. Dr Ansari will discuss the size and shape of the implants that will work best for you, taking into consideration the size you desire along with your unique body proportions and the amount of breast tissue that is present. The goal is to create a look that is fuller without compromising a natural appearance.
- HOW IS BREAST AUGMENTATION (BREAST IMPLANTS) PERFORMED?
Breast augmentation surgery consists of the insertion of an implant (prosthesis) either under the breast tissue and above the chest muscle (sub mammary) or under both the breast tissue and the muscle (sub pectoral). The surgery aims to give you a fuller breast with increased cup size, improved contours and more cleavage.
The most common way to insert breast implants is through a small incision under each breast within the breast crease. However, they may also be inserted via an incision around the areola (pigmented area surrounding the nipple) or in the armpit. You and Dr Ansari will work together to determine which approach is most suitable during your consultation. You can select from different premium implants with long-term warranties.
- WHAT PHYSICAL OUTCOME CAN I EXPECT TO HAVE WITH MY BREAST IMPLANT SURGERY?
Breast augmentation is primarily performed to increase the size, shape or fullness of the breasts. The additional size will need to be discussed before your procedure and depends on a variety of factors, including your measurements and overall proportions. Only an experienced surgeon with the patient’s best interests in mind will be able to determine whether your expectations are achievable.
- WHAT ARE SOME OF THE THINGS I SHOULD TAKE INTO CONSIDERATION WHEN CHOOSING MY BREAST IMPLANTS?
At My Cosmetic Clinic, we tend to prefer foamed silicone implants for most of our patients. However, the shape, size, volume and type of implant are all critical factors when choosing the best implants for your surgery. During your consultation, Dr Ansari will discuss the variables with you and guide you in the direction that is best for you.
- HOW MUCH DOES BREAST IMPLANT SURGERY COST AT MY COSMETIC CLINIC?
Breast implant surgery costs $7900, which includes the following: surgery, anaesthetist, hospital fees, breast implants (round or anatomical), and follow-up appointments for six months after surgery. Dr Ansari will perform the consultations as well as the surgery.
- WILL I HAVE ANY SWELLING OR BRUISING AFTER MY BREAST IMPLANT SURGERY?
Post-operative swelling is frequent, and you will likely experience both swelling and bruising to some degree. These side effects can be reduced by following our post-surgery guidelines, which will be provided to you by the staff at My Cosmetic Clinic in written and verbal form.
We recommend that you sleep in a reclining position, as this may help the fluid move away from the breast area and ease the swelling. Any bruising typically fades within the first couple of weeks after your procedure. It is normal for swelling to move from the breasts to the abdominal area, resulting in a bloated appearance. Swelling tends to resolve within two to three weeks.
- IS THERE PAIN ASSOCIATED WITH BREAST IMPLANT SURGERY?
The amount of pain or discomfort you experience depends on the type of surgical technique used for your breast augmentation, the incision site and the placement location for your implants. Individuals have a very different pain threshold, which means they tolerate and experience pain in a variety of ways. In most cases, discomfort is usually well-tolerated with pain medication. Following your surgery, Dr Ansari will prescribe appropriate pain medication for you, allowing you to manage any discomfort you might experience effectively.
- WILL THERE BE ANY SCARRING INVOLVED WITH MY BREAST IMPLANT SURGERY?
Scars are an inevitable by-product of nearly every surgery. However, Dr Ansari will use careful placement and special techniques to make them as inconspicuous as possible. Breast implant scars are usually a few centimetres long and are often positioned inside the breast fold or around the areola, where they will be barely noticeable.
- ARE THERE ANY RISKS WITH BREAST IMPLANT SURGERY?
As with any operation, there are always risks involved. Dr Ansari will discuss these risks at your consultation, which might include infection, bleeding, severe bruising and a reaction to the anaesthesia. Implant rupture is also a possibility, along with a painful complication known as capsular contracture. Fortunately, these risks are relatively rare.
- WHERE IS MY BREAST IMPLANT SURGERY AT MY COSMETIC CLINIC PERFORMED?
At My Cosmetic Clinic, breast implant surgery is usually performed in an accredited hospital and surgical facility in Sydney. This hospital serves patients seeking breast implants in Sydney, Sydney CBD, Sydney’s Northern Beaches, Eastern Suburbs, North Shore, Newcastle and Wollongong.
