Breast enhancement with the use of silicone gel implants dates back to the 1960’s. Implants have improved greatly from the early ones with a thick outer envelope, to the cohesive gel implants used today. Other developments in implant design include a textured outer surface or a coating of polyurethane foam (furry Brazilians) which reduces the risk of capsular contracture (hard breast) occurring later.
Implants are available in round, anatomical (tear drop) shape, asymmetric (right and left) shapes and may contain saline (salt water) only, or part silicone and part saline. Some saline implants are even adjustable and can be emptied during breast feeding.
Implants are now inserted through a small (5-6 centimetre) incision in the fold under the breast, armpit, around the nipple or through the umbilicus. They can be placed in pockets behind the pectoralis muscle, behind the fascia (fibrous coat) of the muscle or behind the breast.
There are a range of sizes available. At Parkside Cosmetic Surgery, we have a private room where patients can try different sizes before deciding. You can view a very small sample of breast implants in our gallery.
Breast Implant Surgery is performed at Parkside Cosmetic Surgery as a day procedure with a specialist anaesthetist. The anaesthetic technique used has less pain afterwards and quicker recovery.
We recommend a week off from work although some patients have returned to work in as little as three days.
For further information the Therapeutic Goods Administration website has a downloadable Breast Implant Information Booklet which has been prepared to provide guidance for persons considering the use of silicone gel-filled implants.
This important booklet is also available from Parkside Cosmetic Surgery.
