Why consider a breast augmentation?

Various factors can drive individuals to contemplate undergoing breast augmentation, and these motivations hinge on the specific goals and customized surgical plans of each patient. Some common reasons for seeking this procedure include:

  1. Enhancing naturally small breasts
  2. Restoring volume lost due to pregnancy or weight loss
  3. Addressing asymmetries and achieving balanced proportions

It’s crucial for patients to have a clear understanding of both the advantages and potential risks associated with breast augmentation mammoplasty before making the decision to undergo the procedure.

The Implant

At One Cosmetic, we use the highest quality breast implants available on the Australian market — Motiva and Mentor breast implants. Both brands come in a range of shapes, sizes and profiles. Each silicone implant is filled with a cohesive gel that holds together uniformly and retains a natural give that better resembles breast tissue. During your consultation, your surgeon will be able to determine what implant is most suitable for you. 

Motiva breast implants are smooth breast implants that our plastic surgeons commonly use during breast augmentation surgery. We chose Motiva breast implants due to their ongoing studies and safety measurements. Motiva breast implants come in a round and ergonomic shape.

Round – the round implant is uniformly round in shape and holds the firmness even during movement. Patients commonly opt for this implant to achieve the maximum upper pole fullness.

Ergonomic – The ergonomic implant is characterised by its ability to be dynamic with the body. Meaning that as you move, so will the implant. While lying down the implant will hold a more rounded shape, however when standing the implants will appear to be more teardrop.

Mentor are one of the longest implant providers in Australia and each year thousands of women receive breast surgery using Mentor implants. Like Motiva, Mentor breast implants also come in two shapes. First being a round implant and second being a teardrop implant. 

Round –Round implants are characterised by their circular and symmetrical shape, often yielding more pronounced results in breast augmentation.

Teardrop – Teardrop Breast Implants, also referred to as Anatomical Implants, aptly mirror the shape of a teardrop. These implants exhibit a tapered and less full upper portion, while the lower part is rounder, fuller, and wider.

Am I a candidate for surgery?

Before deciding whether to pursue breast augmentation surgery, you may be a good candidate for surgery if:

  • You want to alter the appearance of your breasts
  • You have a minimal amount of breast tissue and wish to have more
  • You are well-supported and have realistic expectations of the surgery
  • You’re able to take sufficient recovery time off of work
  • You are a nonsmoker or are willing to abstain from smoking at least 8 weeks before surgery and 8 weeks post-surgery
  • You are 18 years or older
  • You understand there are risks involved and we cannot guarantee outcomes.
Recovery Guide

After surgery our recovery specialists will given post-op instructions. It is important to follow carefully. You will be provided with a script for medication, which you will need to purchase after surgery and instructions on when to take the medication over the days ahead. You will be discharged from hospital when your companion picks you up from the hospital. All patients must have a companion to stay with them for 72hours following surgery.

The first week after surgery you should stick to gentle day-to-day activities. This includes minimal house duties, no lifting, staying home as much as possible and sleeping in an elevated position. Commence postoperative exercise (instructions given post surgery).

In the second week of recovery try not to raise your blood pressure too much and still sleep in an upright position. Patients will also be required to attend a postoperative appointment at our office in week 2. this will be scheduled prior to surgery.

 

In week 2 patients may:

  • Commence a light walk

  • Return to work in week 2 if you have an office job with little physical activity

  • Avoid sexual intercourse

  • Start driving provided they are not taking any pain medication. We also recommend waiting 3 days for the medication to be out of your system.

Weeks 3 – 5 patients with more physical jobs can return to work.

 

In weeks 3-5 patients may:

  • Start getting into a light exercise routine, using lower body

  • Start doing more physical household duties

In weeks 6-8 patients may:

  • Commence normal exercise routine and duties. Please note, do not push yourself into being back into your pre surgery routines.

  • Swimming, bathing running, yoga, stretching, spin class and Pilates

  • Stop wearing compression bra (Textured Mentor implants)

At this stage patients are mostly fully recovered and sutures are absorbed. Patients should always wear a supportive bra when exercising or performing physical activity. For all patients with teardrop breast implants we recommend that you do not ever go back to using or exercising chest muscles heavily as teardrop implants can rotate.

In weeks 9-12 patients may:

  • Contact sport

  • Boxing and upper body exercise

  • Stop wearing compression bra (smooth Motiva implants)

The first step in finding out more about breast augmentation surgery is to schedule a private consultation. In this consultation, you will meet directly with your specialist plastic surgeon. This gives you an opportunity to discuss your concerns and get all of your questions answered. Before you go into your consultation, you will have our Vectra 3D imaging completed with our breast nurse. The Vectra system allows you to visualise what your post surgery results will look like.

To book a surgery date you can contact our team after a face to face consultation has been completed. You must wait 7 days from the consultation to book a procedure.  

During the consultation, your surgeon will delve into your medical background, inquiring about your medical history and any history of substance abuse, tobacco, or alcohol use. It’s essential to bring along a comprehensive list of all medications and supplements you are currently taking. The consultation includes a thorough examination of your complete and accurate medical history, where you’ll disclose any past surgeries, procedures, or complications you’ve encountered.

This detailed information equips your surgeon to make an informed decision about your general health and assess whether you are an ideal candidate for the procedure—fortunately, the majority of individuals meet the criteria for the intended procedure.

 
 

At the end of your consultation, Dr. Wessels will make recommendations about the best course of action to take for your breast surgery to achieve the result you are after. Every patient is different, and results always vary. While we can look at your inspiration images, we cannot ever guarantee your post surgery results. You must take this into consideration before proceeding with breast augmentation surgery.

 

Breast implant sizing one of the hardest decisions when it comes to breast augmentations. Dr Wessels will take measurements during your consultation to determine what breast implants will be appropriate. He will also examine your breast tissue and shape as these factors can effect what type of implant may be suitable.

 

While we give you a guide of what breast implant is suitable for your breast type, the decision is ultimately yours.

Once you’ve booked your surgery date, a pre surgery appointment will be scheduled 4 weeks prior to your date. This is your chance to meet with your surgeon again, ask any further questions, go over the surgery plan and take some images. This appointment ensures you’re well prepared for the upcoming surgery date.

The night before and the morning of your breast surgery, you’ll need to adhere to certain guidelines. Typically, you should refrain from eating and drinking fluids after midnight, as is common with many surgical procedures.

Depending on Dr Wessels advice, you may be allowed to take specific medications with a small sip of water, such as beta-blockers or cholesterol medications. To minimise the risk of infection, it is recommended to shower with an antimicrobial soap both the evening before and on the morning of your surgery. Be gentle, during the cleansing process to avoid irritation.

For hygiene reasons, it’s advised not to wear nasal, nipple or facial piercings to the hospital to prevent loss and potential bacterial contamination.

Upon arrival at the hospital, nursing staff will conduct necessary checks, and you’ll have an opportunity to meet with your surgeon just before the procedure to ensure you feel prepared. In the operating room, you’ll be administered the appropriate anaesthesia.

To minimise visible scars, incisions are typically made in the fold of the breast. Dr Wessels will carefully prepare the breast pocket for the implant. Once ready the breast implant will be placed inside the breast space. Breast augmentation surgery usually take 1-2 hours. Once completed the breast pocket will be closed and a dressing will be applied to the area, you will be moved to the recovery room.

All sutures are dissolvable, therefore you will not need to have sutures removed post surgery.

Patients are often comforted by the knowledge that breast augmentation is typically performed on an outpatient basis, usually under general anaesthesia. This allows for mobility within hours after the surgery. It is common to experience some soreness in the first two weeks, during which strenuous physical activities are advised against. You will be given a post surgery recovery bra to wear for 6-12 weeks while healing.

 

Postoperative prescriptions, including antibiotics to prevent infection and painkillers, are often provided, with many cosmetic surgeons prescribing these medications well in advance. Adherence to the post surgery instructions is crucial to ensure optimal healing.

 
 
  • Surgical risks such as bleeding or infection

  • Fluid accumulation around the implant after surgery

  • Allergic reaction to suture materials, tape adhesive or other medical materials and lotions

  • Changes in breast and nipple sensation

  • Temporary or permanent areas of numbness

  • Wrinkling of the skin over the implant

  • Keloid, or lumpy scar tissue, which is pink, raised and irregularly shaped. These scars may be inflamed and itchy. There are several possible sites for the incision. Discuss this with your surgeon

  • Inappropriate implant size

  • Asymmetry (unevenness) of the breasts

  • Calcium deposits in the scar capsule around the implant

  • Granulomas, or lumps in local lymph node tissue formed by leaking silicone

  • Breastfeeding difficulties, including reduced milk supply

  • Reduced effectiveness of breast cancer screening, since an implant may hide breast tissue (and tumours) during a mammogram

  • Movement of the implants from their original position

  • Further surgery to treat complications

  • Risks of anaesthesia including allergic reaction or potentially fatal cardiovascular complications such as heart attack

  • A blood clot in the deep veins of the legs (deep vein thrombosis), which can move to the lungs (pulmonary embolus) or to the brain and may be life threatening

  • unsatisfied with surgery outcome

Monitoring your safety for life

Lifelong Breast Implant Surveillance Program

With any surgery, follow-up care is essential. So, we provide patients with ongoing support through our Lifelong follow-up. All patients who have breast augmentation in Sydney with us will receive regular post-operative check-ups to avoid any potential complications in the medium to long term. It is essential to understand that a medical device has been used and must be monitored when the patient has the implant.

Patients who decide to undergo a breast augmentation must understand that in the future they will need to have further surgery as breast implant do not last forever. Future surgery is often required to replace one or both implants. As with all surgical procedures, revisional surgery may also be necessary to correct any problems that may develop.
The Breast Implant Registry (BIR) is a public health initiative focusing on patient safety. The Registry collects relevant patient, surgeon, procedural and implant data relating to breast implants. We register all patients post surgery. The Registry is administered by the Australian Society of Plastic Surgeons Inc (ASPS).
Motiva
All Motiva implants are covered against rupture by the Always Confident Warranty, for the lifetime of the device, and by Product Replacement Policy against capsular contracture, Baker grades III and IV for a period of 10 years.   Furthermore, Motiva offer Extended Warranty Programs, which you may decide to participate according to your personal case:  
  • For Motiva Implants®without Q Inside Safety Technology™ our 2Y Motiva Program™
  • For Motiva Implants®with Q Inside Safety Technology™ our 5Y Motiva Program™  
In addition to the replacement product, these programs will support you with financial assistance for each affected implant, applicable to the cost of the revision surgery in the event of a warranty claim for rupture or capsular contracture Baker grades III and IV.
Mentor
All recipients of MENTOR® Breast Implants are automatically enrolled in the MENTOR® Promise Protection Plan. Should a confirmed rupture or deflation occur, the patient will receive up to two replacement breast implants of the same style or like style at no additional charge for the lifetime of the patient. If a rupture occurs within 10 years of surgery, the patient may also be eligible for financial assistance for surgical costs not covered by insurance. Additional complications are also covered for 10 years with free product replacement.   Implantation of the MENTOR® Breast Implants, as well as any subsequent procedures, must be in accordance with current Mentor Product literature and accepted plastic surgical procedures by appropriately qualified licensed physicians for product to qualify for replacement under the Mentor Product Replacement Policy.
Frequently Asked Questions

We regularly get asked about our procedures, so we have put together a couple of questions we get asked on a regular basis. If there is something else you would like to know, please get in touch!

Individual cases may vary but generally, mothers can breastfeed after having breast augmentation. However, some women do experience reduced nipple sensation following breast augmentation surgery making it difficult to trigger the milk let down reflex. Some women may also experience reduced milk supply.

Unfortunately, breast implants will not last forever. Life expectancy is estimated at 10-15 years.

As this is a cosmetic procedure, there is no Medicare rebate or health insurance cover available.

Scars are apart of this procedure. The scar is about 3-4cm under each breast fold. With care and diligence the scar will fade over time.

The Mentor implants come in round or teardrop shapes — the round shapes are well-suited to patients who are happy with their breast shape and want to increase their breast size. In contrast, the teardrop shape provides a more natural look that may be ideal for patients with slightly droopy breasts, such as post-pregnancy, breastfeeding or with weight loss. Round Motiva breast implants give a fuller, round appearance. When standing, the lower pole of the breast will be fuller as this implant has more movement.

 

Our team will assess your breast composition, listen to your goals and advise on the best implant size and shape for your body during your initial consultation.

After the breast augmentation procedure, our patients are taken to recovery for 2–4 hours with our recovery care specialists and can travel home that same evening. Our post-op specialists will provide you with post-op instructions to ensure a smooth recovery.

To book your personal consultation, please contact our team on 1800 678 679 or info@onecosmetic.com.

 

Our consultation dates are normally booked 1-2 months in advance.
