Many women feel their natural breast size is too small, their breasts have lost volume after pregnancy and breastfeeding, or possibly have an imbalance in size between breasts.
While specialist bras can go some way to addressing this, dissatisfaction with breast size can cause emotional stress and impact on a woman’s life. Breast augmentation surgery, also known as a breast enlargement, boob job or breast implant surgery offers a permanent solution by inserting an implant behind each breast, increasing the size.
Our experienced Gold Coast plastic surgeon Dr Dilip has been performing breast enlargement procedures on the Gold Coast for over 21 years. He has the knowledge and experience to achieve for you the results that you have always wanted.
Simply put, the breast enlargement or breast augmentation procedure involves placing a permanent implant inside the body to enlarge the size of the breast. Your initial consultation with Dr Dilip Gahankari will decide details such as the appropriate specification of your breast augmentation surgery.
There are multiple factors that come into play in regards to this procedure. The size and type (silicone gel or saline) of the implant is one of the main decisions made by the patient and depends on their personal preferences and the look in which they are going for. Furthermore, the type of implant surface (smooth or textured) and the shape (tear drop or round) also needs to be decided upon and depends on the individual needs and desires of each patient. Finally, the surgical option (under or over the muscle) will be chosen and depends on the individual’s personal preferences and a range of other factors.
In most cases the actual breast augmentation procedure will take place on the Gold Coast as day surgery under general anaesthetic. All of the above details will be discussed and explained further in your initial free consultation with Dr Dilip on the Gold Coast.
Recovery time for breast augmentation surgery is usually quite quick, but is dependent on each individual’s personal factors. You should be able to return to work within 2-7 days under usual circumstances after a breast augmentation procedure. While everyone’s recovery is different it is recommended to refrain from driving for two weeks after the breast augmentation surgery. Light physical activity can be resumed after two weeks, however it is advised that rigorous physical activity be avoided for six weeks after the breast augmentation surgery.
After the breast augmentation surgery you will have fuller, firmer breasts to complement your natural body curvature. You may experience swelling and bruising for some weeks as well as over- or under-sensitive skin. You should be able to resume normal, light activities within two days.
