Macrolane Trial

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.

Dr Rastogi says the technique has since been refined and he has 100 patients on a waiting list if Australia's regulator for medical drugs and devices, the Therapeutic Goods Administration, gives Macrolane the go-ahead. It is said to suit people who are averse to surgery and scarring and want a subtle change from A to B or B to C cup.
The new filler is a thicker form of Restylane, which has been used as a skin-plumper for 10 years.
Despite that, there are big concerns about the jab's safety, cost - expected to be about $5000 to $7000 - and longevity. The effects last about a year before needing a top-up.

Breast implants changed my life

Jacqueline Achilles is a fitness instructor and part-time model who wants a career in fashion.

"I was always told my breast size wasn't ideal," says part-time model Jacqueline Achilles. "And when I went shopping I felt limited about what fashionable clothes I could wear."

So Jacqueline had breast implants and now, she says, "I feel more confident and feminine."

Sydney cosmetic surgeon Dr Anoop Rastogi says that while Jacqueline had beautiful shoulders and nice hips, she lacked an hourglass figure as her breasts were small.

The aim was to create breasts to balance and sculpt her figure, which would allow her to pursue her modelling career.

Jacqueline had tubular-shaped breasts with a short distance between the nipple and the crease under the breast. 

Because of her natural breast shape, Dr Rastogi chose a very specialised anatomical implant (tear-drop shaped) so he could lift the nipple position and correct the tubular shape.

The breasts slope gently from Jacqueline's shoulders to her nipples, then arc fully to the creases under her breasts.

The width of the implants created cleavage, and fullness at the sides made a contrast with Jacqueline's waist, producing the desired                       hourglass figure.

Five rules to remember:
  1. Patients really need to do their research when choosing a surgeon. How attractive the breasts will look has a lot to do with the surgeon's skill.
  2. When looking for a surgeon, check the Australasian College of Cosmetic Surgery website for advice.
  3. Look at before and after photos to determine the shape you want.
  4. Have in mind 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.
