Breast augmentation

Breast enlargement, Breast implants
"A well performed breast augmentation is an operation of preparation, measurement, exactness and perfect technique" Peter Callan

Breast augmentation

“Breast augmentation is breast enlargement with implants. Breast augmentation adds volume. Reasons for surgery may be personal choice, or to restore volume following breast feeding, weight loss, and to match asymmetry.”

 

Your operation

Mr Callan performs all his surgery in state of the art facilities at St John of God Hospital in Geelong.

Breast augmentation is almost always done as a day procedure. Someone will need to take you home from hospital stay with you the first night. Breast augmentation is not a particularly painful procedure but you will be given medication to keep you comfortable.

Breast implants

Safety and quality are absolute paramount. We only use smooth round implants and have done so for over ten years. These implants are the safest implants available.

We follow the best surgical techniques to minimise the risk of any adverse events. Your implants should last for many years to come.

Before and after

Move slider right and left to see the result of breast augmentation using 350cc smooth round implants on top of the muscle.

Your results

We aim for a natural, enhancing appearance. All of our implants are round, smooth implants placed on top of the muscle.

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you are welcome to seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified specialist.

 

 

Your recovery

Recovery time is a couple of days but full upper body activities should not be resumed until three weeks.

If you are able to largely relax after your surgery then you may only need a few days to recover.

You can shower within hours of surgery as dressings are minimal. You must not drive until you are fully recovered from both the anaesthetic and the discomfort of surgery.

The incision lines from the surgery are always present but fade over the first six to 12 months.

We recommend a soft  bra to be worn for the first three weeks post operation to support breasts and help with post-operative discomfort. After three weeks we recommend you getting professionally fitted to determine your true size.

Your questions

The procedure will be discussed in more detail during your consultation with Mr Callan.  You will have the opportunity ask questions and talk through your reasons for surgery and the expectations you have about the result. The operation and any risks associated with surgery will also be discussed. Sizing will be done with special sizing implants.
