Thinking About Breast Implants?
Are you considering a breast implant procedure to augment the shape or size of your breasts? You are not alone! In Sydney, breast implants are often performed on women who want to accentuate their natural contours and achieve a fuller, more feminine bust. Changes in the body like weight fluctuations, pregnancy, breastfeeding and gravity can cause the breasts to start sagging or lose fullness over time. Breast surgery can help you correct these aesthetic issues and help you achieve a more youthful appearance.
Choosing the Right Breast Implants Plastic Surgeon in Sydney
An important step in your breast implant experience is choosing a surgeon that you feel confident can help deliver the results you are looking for safely. The goal is to avoid surgeons offering cheap breast implants in Sydney and instead find a facility that invests in high-quality devices and still maintains affordable rates or flexible payment options. Schedule a consultation where you can find out more about the surgeon and have a chance to visit the facility to help you pick the best option for you and your aesthetic needs. At Refine Clinic in Bondi, we offer a free initial consultation for patients seeking breast implants and other cosmetic surgery procedures.
Breast Implant Before and After
Many facilities offer pre- and post-op pictures of past patients to help give an idea of potential results, as well as the surgeon’s skill level and success rate. We recommend all patients ask images of breast implant before and after in Australia. This can help give an idea of what to expect from breast surgery. It’s important to remember, however, that the results may vary slightly based on your unique aesthetic needs, body structure and healing process. Some patients might not achieve the same size or shape as others due to their existing body tissue or size. Looking at before and after pictures of other patients can also help you visualise different implant sizes and shapes.

What is the Average Cost of Breast Implants in Sydney?
The average price of plastic surgery procedures often varies, since most patients require a personalised level of care. What breast implants cost in Sydney, for example, will depend upon the type of implants the patient is choosing, as well as the placement, incision site, approach and any individual details. The extent of surgery and the amount of correction or augmentation desired can also impact the final amount. Some patients also opt to combine their procedures with other body contouring surgeries, such as a tummy tuck or mummy makeover, to achieve a more balanced result. All of these factors affect how much breast implants in Sydney cost.
What is the Difference Between Silicone and Saline?
The main types of breast implants in Sydney are typically broken down into two categories: saline and silicone. There are different types of implants in each material and patients can customise the volume and size with both. Patients will be thoroughly educated on the differences between the two during their consultation or follow-up meetings with the surgeon or another educated professional.
It’s important to note that, regardless of the filling within the device, all breast implants are made of a silicone “shell” – some are prefilled and then inserted, while others can be inserted once placed in the breast.
Here’s a quick breakdown of silicone vs. saline among Sydney plastic surgeons and breast implants:
The term silicone is sometimes associated with implants and other plastic surgery because it is one of the most popular options with no known human allergies or sensitivities. Silicone is an inert polymer and has a consistency similar to gummy bears – in fact, there is a type of implant named for this sweet because of this! It’s by far the most popular option for breast implants in Australia thanks to its ability to mimic the look and feel of natural human tissue.
Silicone implants must be placed pre-filled, which typically requires a larger incision. They may also be harder to detect in the event of a rupture without medical assistance.
Saline implants are filled with sterile saline solution, which is simply saltwater. These are place empty in the chest, so smaller incisions can be made and patients can have the fill tweaked once they are in to achieve a more natural and proportionate shape. Unfortunately, saline implants tend to have a higher chance of rippling, which is visible underneath the skin. On the other hand, if an implant ruptures or deflates, it is immediately apparent and the filling is completely non-toxic.
What Are the Risks of Breast Implant Surgery?
Like any major surgery, it is necessary to be fully aware of any risks involved and potential complications or side effects of the procedure. A breast implant surgery can put considerable strain on your body, so patients must follow their surgeon’s instructions carefully.
Possible risks of breast implant surgery include:
Changes in sensation or structure
This may seem obvious, as it is the goal for some, but it’s important to remember that breast implants may alter the current structure, size or appearance of the breast tissue or muscle. Some patients can also experience a loss of sensation in the nipple or pain and discomfort.
Need for further correction or surgery
Implant surgery is intended to be long-lasting and offers patients a near-permanent approach to body contouring and breast enhancement. It helps women maintain a perky, youthful shape and volume and can stand up against sagging and drooping over time. However, some women will need to replace their implants after 10 or so years, while others may have lifestyle changes over time that lead them to an implant increase, reduction or even removal. All of these procedures will require additional surgery (and, in turn, more downtime).
Permanent tissue changes or damage
The surgery and placement of breast implants can affect the tissue around your breasts. The skin and muscles must slowly conform to accommodate the prosthetic in the breast, which may result in scar tissue forming or permanent changes to the area. Some women who opt to have their breast implants removed later in life may see permanent changes to the shape even after the implants are removed. For example, there may be dimpling or wrinkling.
As with any surgery, there are risks to consider. Infection, anaesthesia complications, bleeding, haematoma, and inflammation can occur with breast implants. Finding a high-quality surgeon that follows TGA standards and uses sterile equipment and high-end devices, can help greatly reduce the risk of surgical complications.
When a foreign object enters the body, such as a breast implant device, a type of scar tissue can form around the device. Typically, a capsular-like shape, this happens as the body’s way to help the implants remain in place and prevent infection. In some cases, however, the patient’s will not stop producing this scar tissue, which creates the risk of it constricting and potentially rupturing the implant. Patients with capsular contracture may experience hardness, changes in the shape of your breast or pain.
A harmless side effect, some patients might develop calcium deposits around their implants. This might cause some concern during mammograms, and some patients may have them removed to remove any possibility of breast cancer.
What is the Procedure Like?
Before any type of cosmetic or plastic surgery, a patient must sit down with a qualified consultant to discuss their eligibility, medical history and desired results. This will help determine candidacy for breast implants surgery, as it may not be right for everyone. Patients can discuss everything from what breast implants in Sydney cost to what cup size or shape is best for them. After the initial consultation, patients can work closely with their surgeon to plan a breast implant approach that is both realistic and suits their aesthetic desires to help achieve the best possible result. Patients will be provided with careful instructions to follow before and after surgery. In particular, patients will be advised to stop smoking cigarettes, drinking tobacco and taking certain medications, including over-the-counter NSAID.
The actual surgery is typically performed under general anaesthesia, though local may be used in certain cases. This will always be discussed beforehand. If you are undergoing breast implant revision surgery in Sydney, the approach may vary slightly than the first time. The incision placement and implant insertion method will also be discussed with the patients before their surgery and may vary based on their unique needs or body structure. Once the desired implants are secure and Dr Bezic is content with the placement, internal incisions may be closed with layered sutures or stitches while surgical tape or skin adhesive is used on the skin to help keep it closed.
How Are Implants Placed?
As we mentioned, there are different ways your implants can be inserted in your breasts. Once inserted, there are also various placement options that you and Dr Bezic or your consultant can discuss beforehand that help deliver slightly different results. Patients, with the help of their physician, can select the best choice for them. The approach can also mean breast implants in Sydney prices will vary depending on what is chosen.
First, we’ll discuss incision types:
- Inframammary is the method that is most common for breast implants, as it offers a more direct path and placement ability. As the name suggests, the incision is made in the breast tissue, either under the crease or along the fold. In any case, Dr Bezic will try to work with the natural folds of the skin to reduce visible scarring.
- Transaxillary insertion might be recommended to patients who scar easily or are prone to keloids. Patients who opt for round or teardrop-shaped implants might be candidates for this approach. It requires a more strategic approach, so it’s important to find a surgeon who is experienced with this approach!
- Periareolar refers to an incision method that goes along the areola to help conceal the incision naturally. It’s not recommended for larger implants, and patients are at higher risk of reducing or losing sensitivity in the area.
- Transumbilical incisions are made within the belly button and are typically only suitable for saline implants. It’s a less conventional approach but may be ideal for certain patients!
Next, is the placement:
- Subglandular is when the breast implants are placed behind the breast tissue and in front of the pectoral muscles. Also called submammary placement, this approach may deliver a more “lifted” appearance and have a faster recovery time. However, the close proximity to the surface of the skin can affect the way the implants look or feel, causing a less “natural” result.
- Submuscular implants sit beneath the pectoral muscle (as well as the breast tissue), to deliver a more natural finish. However, this can cause a longer recovery time and can be less comfortable during the healing process.
- Dual-plane placement should only be attempted by a very experienced breast surgeon, but it can help deliver a more unique result. The implant is placed partly behind the muscle, with some left sitting just beneath the breast tissue. This can help correct signs of sagging in the tissue and can be ideal for women with less thickness towards the top of their breast.
How Long Is the Recovery Time?
In general, the recovery from a breast implant surgery in Sydney is about two weeks, but this can vary greatly among patients. The first few days after surgery will be the most difficult, typically, and patients may experience swelling, bruising, discomfort or bleeding. Careful measures are taken to help drain any fluid build-up and patients are typically provided instructions for a surgical bra that should be worn during recovery. There may be residual swelling and fluid build-up for up to six months or a year after the procedure, but most patients will start to see the full effect of their breast implant surgery after a few months.
Will I Need Breast Implant Revision Surgery in Sydney?
Whether or not a patient will require a breast implant revision in Sydney is addressed on an individual basis. Not all patients will need or want a secondary surgery to alter their breast implants. Others may not be entirely satisfied with their procedure and opt for secondary surgery to make changes to the current implant size or shape. In any case, it’s important to discuss this in detail with your surgeon and inquire about their success rate and experience level with breast implant revision in Sydney. Dr Ron Paul Bezic, for example, is well-versed in secondary breast implant procedures and can even help patients decide if it’s the right option for them.
How Do I Pick An Implant Shape/Size?
Most women who undergo breast implant surgery are satisfied with their results and have no regrets about the shape, size or implant type that they chose. Finding this level of satisfaction can take longer for some women, and we encourage all potential breast implant patients to ask as many questions as they need to help them decide on the best option. Many facilities will allow you to test the implant types and will have different moulds readily available to help patients get a better idea of their weight and size.
Can I Still Breastfeed After Breast Implants?
Many women go on to experience pregnancy and even breastfeed with implants! For most, there are no issues and the implants don’t impact their ability to produce milk. However, certain placement options can affect breastfeeding. It’s recommended to discuss the possibility of having children or breastfeeding with your surgeon!
Will I Have Difficulty Screening For Cancer?
Mammograms might be different after breast implants, but most patients have no issue undergoing regular cancer screenings. At Refine Clinic, we recommend talking to the technician or physician beforehand to advise that you have breast implants. This can help reduce any risk of rupturing or deflating the implants.
I’m Unhappy With My Current Breast Implants, What Should I Do?
The goal of plastic and cosmetic surgery is often to help patients correct imperfections in their appearance to help enhance and emphasise their natural beauty. This type of surgery is an investment of both time, money and energy and it can often be more stressful to find that you are unhappy with your results! In some cases, this may be due to a botched surgery where the surgeon’s level of skill or the hygiene of the facility was subpar. However, it is important to remember that satisfaction is not guaranteed after a cosmetic procedure! Our bodies are unique, and not everyone experiences the same results!
