Breast Surgery

Arguably no part of a woman’s anatomy defines her femininity and her persona quite like her breasts. As one of Australia’s foremost and respected plastic surgeons for breast surgery with over 20 years experience, Dr Buckland offers women a reassuring sense of confidence, particularly for those affected by breast cancer. So before considering your body profile, review the profile of a highly qualified surgeon who can help achieve your goals.

Breast Enlargement

It’s about an extra feeling of self confidence. The added poise that comes with having fuller, more elegant figure. Or maybe you wish to counteract sagging or loss of volume due to aging, weight loss, pregnancy or breastfeeding? A breast enlargement can really help.

Put simply, breast enlargement or ‘augmentation’ is a surgical procedure which increases the size, firmness and enhances the shape of the breasts.

Breast enlargement is performed in various ways, because each woman’s body and the effect she seeks is very much a personal choice. There are options for incision sites and implant placement. Breast implants themselves vary by contents, the outer surface, overall shape and size, enabling you to achieve precisely the look you desire.

Dr Buckland’s wealth of experience is your guide to determining the optimum technique that’s right for you. His depth of training and skills give him a particular expertise in breast surgery, having performed numerous procedures in leading hospitals across Sydney.

When you’re considering breast enlargement, you’ll want to be fully informed. So Dr Buckland insists on a personal consultation to help determine the optimum method and type of implants best suited to your individual circumstances, body shape and desired outcome.

Your decision to have surgery should not be taken lightly, and Dr Buckland will be more than happy to answer the many questions you’re bound to have to help you decide whether breast enlargement is right for you. Remember, we’re as close as your phone or email, so contact us to learn more.

What’s Involved?

Breast enlargement surgery is performed under general anaesthetic in hospital, either as day surgery or an overnight stay. While the operation itself is tailored to your body shape and the look you are trying to achieve, usually the incisions are made either in the crease under the breast, or on rare occasions, around the areola (nipple) or under the arm.

Breast implants may be placed either underneath the pectoral (chest) muscle or beneath the breast, depending on your body shape and the shape and position of your natural breast.

What Type Of Implants Are Used?

Dr Buckland prefers to use cohesive silicon gel implants with a textured surface. These can be either a teardrop or round implants in shape. Deciding on which is best for you will depend on your breast’s natural contours and the look you are trying to achieve. It is important that all these variables are tailored to suit your unique body profile and a personal consultation with Dr Buckland will help determine the optimum approach.

Your Safety And Health Are Paramount.

Silicon breast implants are freely available in Australia, and extensive clinical trials have been performed on tens of thousands of women to investigate their efficacy. The results have subsequently dismissed any association between silicon breast implants and increased risk of breast cancer, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus or mixed connective tissue disease.

Can It Affect Breastfeeding Later On?

Breast enlargement will not interfere with your ability to breastfeed as the implants are always placed behind the breast tissue and not into the breast tissue itself.

What’s It Like Living With Silicon Implants?

Silicon gel implants have been proven to be generally well accepted by a woman’s body. Dr Garry Buckland insists on using implants of the highest quality which have been extensively proven through rigorous clinical testing.

What About The Recovery Process?

The use of internal dissolving sutures ensures any visible scaring is minimised. After the operation, waterproof dressings are placed over the top allowing you to shower normally. All our patients are provided with post-operative bras for support. You’ll typically be able to return to most jobs one week after your operation but it’s important to limit lifting or upper body exercise for a month after the operation.

If you are considering breast augmentation it’s essential that you have all the information you need. So we invite you to contact our staff for an appointment and we’ll be only too happy to answer all your queries.
