Breast Implants in Brisbane
Breast Augmentation or Enlargement Surgery is a procedure that involves the placement of breast implants to enhance breast shape. The operation is now a common procedure offering a wide choice in breast implant sizes, shapes, projection and placement to create a natural looking cleavage. The choice of breast implants will be based on your existing breast anatomy, body type (or width) and the desired increase in size. Your lifestyle, goals and personal preferences, as well as sound surgical surgical judgements are also determining factors.
You can choose either saline (salt water) or silicone implants, all of which are TGA approved devices.
Dr. Wong feels the aim of breast implant surgery is not just enlarging the breasts, it must create harmony to enhance the woman’s overall shape and balance her figure. Prior to breast implant surgery, a lot of thought and planning goes into choosing the appropriate implants and designing the placement of the implants such that they will give not only good cleavage but be in proportion with the whole body.
After the breast implant operation there will be some bruising and swelling. Breasts implants generally do not interfere with the women’s ability to breast feed and is not a hazard during pregnancy. However changes of the body during pregnancy or weight gain may alter the results of any breast implant surgery.
Following placement of breast implants, future mammography may be technically more difficult but still able to be performed. In many cases, breast ultrasound or MRI scans may be suitable.
There is currently a type of Breast Cancer which is directly related to Breast implants – Anaplastic large cell Lymphoma. Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma is very rare and is mainly associated with both textured and Polyurethane surface implants and not related to smooth surface implants. If you ever notice any swelling or changes in your implants, you need to report to your surgeon for investigation. If your surgeon is removing the capsule around an implant, the tissues from the capsule should be sent for histological examination.
If you have PIP implants, please discuss with our doctor the best approach with regard to ex-plantation and replacement.
