Each woman is different, therefore each need is different. This is one of the most important principles we operate under when working with patients for breast surgery in our Melbourne and Gold Coast clinics. For examples of our highly individualised approach, see the breast surgery before and after photos below.
The different types of breast surgery:
This surgical operation is an aesthetic procedure for increasing the volume of a women’s bust.
This type of breast surgery is carried out on patients who have had a previous breast augmentation or reconstruction operation.
This operation restores the shape of the breast after a mastectomy or an accident, or correcting a congenital deformity.
Breast Reduction / Repositioning (Reduction Mammoplasty)
This type of breast surgery reduces the size and improves the shape of the breasts by removing excess skin, gland and fat tissue. The nipple may also be elevated into a more desirable position with possible reduction in size of the areola.
Cleavage is defined as the cleft between a woman’s breasts lying over the sternum (breast bone). It’s important to note that larger breasts don’t necessarily translate to more cleavage.
As breasts get larger, the amount of cleavage usually increases, but the wider the space between your breasts, the less of an impact implants will have on your cleavage. Keep this in mind when choosing an implant size.
You will need a careful assessment and discussion with our surgeon to determine what is the best option for your unique situation. During your consultation, you will have plenty of opportunity to ask about breast surgery cost, risks and results.
