Every woman deserves breasts that make her feel confident and feminine. If you are dissatisfied with breasts that are naturally small, or you have lost breast volume after pregnancy, nursing or weight loss, breast augmentation by Dr. can help. The qualified, experienced plastic surgeon has helped numerous breast augmentation patients enjoy the shapely and feminine breasts they desire.
The decision to have breast augmentation is not something to be taken lightly. It’s a choice that you have probably thought about at length for many months (if not years). Before moving forward with the surgery, it’s imperative to have accurate information about how much breast augmentation costs in Wollongong
Planning Your Breast Augmentation Surgery
As you prepare for breast augmentation surgery, you will have several important decisions to make, including choosing your breast implant size, type and shape. During your pre-operative consultation, Dr. Sjarif will guide you through considering your options and help you decide what is best for your treatment.
Implant Type: Silicone breast implants have a silicone shell that is filled with a cohesive silicone gel. Saline implants are used much less frequently. Each type of implant has its own set of pros and cons, and the type that is most suitable will depend on your anatomy and goals of surgery.
Implant Size: Breast Implants come in a variety of sizes to help you achieve the exact result you desire. The Vectra 3D imaging system is a very helpful tool as you pick out your implant size, as it enables you to “try on” different sizes to find the most appropriate option. We also use sizers that you can try in a bra to get an idea of what you will look like in clothing.
Implant Shape: Breast Implants are available in round and teardrop shapes. Round implants have equal projection on top and bottom, as opposed to teardrop implants, which are gently sloped (similar to the curve of a natural breast). The decision to use one type over the other is dependent on a number of factors related to your breast tissue and the “look” that you hope to achieve.
Breast Implant Placement: Implants can be placed either above or below the chest muscle. This depends on factors such as the amount of native breast tissue and your body frame.
Incision Location: Implants can be placed through several different incision patterns:
- Around the circumference of the areola
- Within the inframammary fold (where the breast meets the torso)
- Through the armpit
The incisions from breast augmentation do leave scarring, although the scars will be well-concealed within the natural creases or folds of skin. They should not be noticeable underneath a bra or bathing suit top.
How Is the Cost of Breast Augmentation Determined?
Breast augmentation expenses can vary. The cost of your breast augmentation will be based on the following factors:
The type of breast implants used: Silicone implants are available in two different shapes – round and anatomical (tear-drop). The decision to use one shape over the other is dependent on a number of variables which will be discussed at your consultation with Dr Sjarif. Generally, anatomical implants cost more than similar sized round implants
How the procedure is performed: Some breast augmentation candidates opt to have their breasts lifted at the time of implant placement; this approach can raise the costs of surgery. How the implants are placed (above versus beneath the chest muscle) can also factor into the cost.
Where the surgery is performed: The facility in which the procedure is performed will influence your overall expenses. Usually, private hospitals charge slightly more than day surgery facilities.
The experience and location of the surgeon: A surgeon’s fees for breast augmentation can vary, depending on their level of experience, training and their geographical office location. More experienced plastic surgeons tend to charge more for their services, and physicians in big cities tend to charge more than those in rural areas.
The best way to get up-do-date information about the cost of breast augmentation in Sydney, Wollongong and the nearby areas is to meet with Dr. Sjarif. After learning more about your treatment needs and goals, he can provide you with a personalized estimate of the anticipated costs. He is committed to offering breast augmentation at fair prices without compromising quality of care.
Your pricing estimate should include the cost of the implants, the surgeon’s fees, facility fees, post-operative follow up and any special garments you will need to wear after surgery. You do not need to worry about hidden fees being left out of your quote. If you are gathering quotes from other surgeons or offices, be sure that they are providing you with the total price and check that there are no hidden fees.
Recovering from Breast Augmentation Surgery
Your breasts will be swollen and tender as they heal, although most of the discomfort subsides within 24 to 48 hours. The implants may look as though they are sitting very high on the chest until they “settle” into their pockets. You will be wearing a special bra to put slight compression on the breasts as they heal.
You can resume work after a week or two, and your exercise routine after six to eight weeks. Surgical results typically stabilize about six weeks after surgery.
