Five rules to remember when considering Breast Augmentation

  1. Patients need to do their research when choosing a surgeon. How attractive the breasts look has a lot to do with the chosen surgeon's skill.
  2. When looking for a surgeon, check out the Australasian College of Cosmetic Surgery website for advice.
  3. Look at before & after photos to determine the shape you want.
  4. Have an idea of the cup size you would like to be but also be guided by the surgeon's knowledge.
  5. The most often used implants in Australia are cohesive silicon gel, they give the most natural look and feel. Saline implants can wrinkle and have a higher failure rate.

No Fuss Nips & Tucks

For a truly uplifting experience, go up a cup size in an hour without surgery, writes Becky Barker.
It could only be a matter of months before women are queuing up for a walk-in, walk-out, go-back-to-work boob job in Australia. Dr Anoop Rastogi, who has a practice in Double Bay, started clinical trials on three patients with the new, injectable, gel-like filler Macrolane last month and says the patients love the look.
"There was a little bit of swelling, they took mild painkillers for a couple of days and were back at work the same day," says Dr Rastogi, who administered the treatment at 40-minute appointments where the subjects received a local anaesthetic under light sedation.

Decisions and Incisions

Where do I make my incisions for for Breast Augmentation and why?

The infra mammary incision that I use for my Breast Augmentation's is the most commonly used incision.

I use this type of incision because at 12 months post surgery the scars are barely visible and it also allows for the greatest surgical accuracy, coupled with the lowest rate of complications associated with Breast Augmentation .

What is the downtime after surgery and what can’t you do?

Pain and downtime both continue to be rapidly reduced because of the rapid recovery technique that I implement in all my breast augmentation surgeries.

Patients are usually well enough to go out to dinner or off to the movies the following day after a procedure and only need a weekend recovery before returning to work on Monday.

It is always advised however to avoid any heavy lifting and/or vigorous exercise for 6 weeks following surgery, which allows the implants time to fully stabilise into position.
