There is no doubt that breast augmentation can be extremely gratifying with unquestionable dramatic benefits to appearance, wellbeing and confidence.

Breast augmentation refers to increasing the volume of and changing the shape of breasts by the surgical placement of breast prostheses.

Breast augmentation has become the poster child of Plastic surgery. It is meshed into our complex and colourful popular culture. Most of us will know someone who has had the procedure and we have all seen examples of good and bad results.

Women seek breast augmentation for a variety of reasons, not just to increase their bust size. Most commonly, women want a more balanced body shape. They seek breasts that complement their height, shoulders, waist and hips. Some women have very little breast tissue and are just aiming for a modest increase to be more feminine, while others seek a more dramatic change to their proportions. For some, an increase in volume is just as important as a change of the shape to their breasts. Whatever the reason, Breast augmentation is an extremely powerful tool in transforming the body form.

Your initial consultation will focus on your goals while exploring the idiosyncrasies of your general health, body shape, chest shape, breast size, shape and symmetry. Your breast augmentation is unique to you and your lifestyle. No one else can have the result that you will have.

Our Surgeons will help to you understand what it might be like to have larger augmented breasts and what the implications are in the context of your lifestyle, age and childbearing intentions. Based on careful measurements taken during your consultation by our surgeons, you will be guided through the multiple decisions that allow the simple concept of breast augmentation to become a highly personalized procedure.

Our Surgeons will also outline the risks involved in breast augmentation and what the implications are for the rest of your life.

At Waverley House Plastic Surgery Center your Breast Augmentation will be registered with the National Breast Device Registry to continue to collect objective data in a field that has historically been unregulated and difficult to monitor. This is an initiative that will improve the quality and safety of breast implant surgery.
