What’s involved in a breast augmentation procedure?
Breast enhancement is a surgical procedure. It involves placing silicone implants into the breast. This will increase the volume and projection of the breasts.
Dr Anh will discuss all your options at your consultation. The specifics of your breast augmentation will depend on many factors:
- The look that you are trying to achieve
- Your lifestyle
- Personal preference
- What is suitable for your body shape and build
The first step is to establish if you are a candidate for breast surgery. Dr. Anh will assess your reasons for wanting to undergo plastic surgery. Following Dr. Anh’s assessment, you will receive a customised treatment plan.
A word of caution on overseas cosmetic surgery:
We repair lots of botched jobs
Some breast surgery patients have opted for cheap procedures overseas. Unhappy with the results, they come in to have botched boob jobs repaired. There can be many health risks of having cosmetic surgery abroad.
The medical risks
Many countries’ medical regulations aren’t as strict as Australia’s. These regulations exist to keep you safe and healthy. Having a breast enlargement in a less sterile environment increases the risk of infection. Even scarier, your surgeon may not have trained to perform the surgery. You can end up with results far from what you had envisioned. We have all heard the horror stories of things going wrong with cosmetic surgery tourism:
- People losing their nipples
- Terrible infections
- Allergic reactions to cheap products
- Even death
While you may save now, but you’ll pay later
If that’s not enough to deter you, consider that you could end up spending way more money. The money you save on a cheaper breast augmentation procedure is at risk of being spent tenfold. It’s expensive dealing with medical complications of an incorrectly done surgery. Therefore it’s also expensive to repair botched results. Combined, these can lead to higher costs than paying for a high quality procedure in the first place.
It’s just not worth it
Does the cost of breast augmentation with Dr Anh seems out of reach? If so, we encourage you to consider finance options. Another options is to save up a bit longer. It’s worth it in order to afford good quality surgical care. In the end you’ll be glad you did. Don’t gamble with your health.
How long will breast implants last?
The lifespan of breast implants can vary greatly from person to person. However, the average is about ten years. Over time, implants will shift and wear down. Since this is the natural movement of the body. This means that all implants will need to be replaced at some point.
The quality of the implants is clearly linked to their longevity. Choosing a plastic surgeon you can trust to use only top quality products is critical.
If you want breast implants for the rest of your life, will have to replace them at least once. In many cases patients will need to replace the implants more than once. At any sign of your implants changing, see your doctor.
The history of breast enhancement:
The first silicone breast implant patient was a dog
Believe it or not, the first trial patient to receive a silicone breast implant, in 1962, was a dog named Esmerelda. The implant was left under the skin for several weeks. After this the implant was deemed to be “as harmless as water” and safe for implantation into human patients.
Experiments with implanting other objects and substances in the breasts.
So, the obsession with enlarging breasts had begun long before the silicone breast implant was invented.
- As early as the late 1800’s people were attempting breast augmentation with paraffin.
- In the 1920’s and 1930’s, doctors trialled moving fat from other parts of body to the breast.
- In the 1950’s polyurethane, cartilage, sponges, wood and glass balls were trialled as breast implant options
The first human to receive silicone breast implants
In 1962, Timmy Jean Lindsey was the first woman to receive silicone breast implants. She lived in Houston, Texas. Her doctors were medical pioneers eager to test their idea. They convinced her to undergo the trial operation. The operation was a success! Little did these doctors know the magnitude of their discovery. Breast enhancement is now one of the top cosmetic procedures in the world!
