Types Of Breast Implants Perth
Breast implants may be smooth or textured at their silicone shell surface. There are advantages and disadvantages of each. In Perth, the most commonly used implants are textured breast implants however recent studies may change this ratio over the next few years. Textured breast implants may be anatomical in shape (Teardrop) or round. There are specific reasons why each may be preferred. Generally if the patient has little or no breast tissue and is very slim, anatomical implants are preferred.
Smooth breast implants are all round. They are always placed under the pectorals major muscle since the incidence of problematic capsule formation (Scarring around the implant) is higher if they are not.
Patients should participate in their own Breast Augmentation surgery and post surgery care. They can only do this when all the facts about breast augmentation surgery and the types of breast implants that are available are put before them.
How Bad Are The Scars From Breast Implants?
Scarring from breast implant surgery is not fully predictable. However, most breast augmentation scars are barely visible and can be easily concealed in time. The scars on the breasts may appear pink and slightly thickened for a few weeks to months after breast implant surgery. Breast Augmentation scars will usually fade to be pale and soft by around three to six months. Their final appearance may take up to eighteen months to achieve. Most patients experience very minimal scarring in the longer term following their Breast Augmentation procedure.
When you are considering your options regarding breast augmentation and what type of breast implants you prefer, it is important to research the credentials of your local plastic surgeon to make sure that the plastic surgeon is fully trained with extensive experience in the type of procedure that you will be having. Many doctors call themselves Plastic surgeons or cosmetic surgeons, without having any qualifications in Plastic and Reconstructive surgery recognised by the Australian Medical Board (AHPRA). A fully qualified Plastic Surgeon will be listed on the AHPRA website as a “Specialist Plastic Surgeon”. If they are not, then they are likely not fully qualified.
