Individual plan for your breast augmentation
The specifics of breast augmentation highly depends on the person undergoing the procedure. Hence, the results which you have seen on another person may not be same for you. However, your FRACS surgeon will discuss this with you and create a special plan (including cost & prices) that will give the best possible results.
Conversation with your surgeon
The conversation with your plastic surgeon helps to form an individual plan for the procedure. Your doctor will ask about your personal expectations and the modifications that you are seeking.
Your surgeon will also enquire about your past medical history, which includes past surgical history, diseases of the breast in the past and any other medical conditions.
He will also ask about any medications you are taking and any possible allergic reactions you may have. This vital information is required to devise an individual plan for you that will yield the best possible outcome from the surgery with low or no complications.
You need to be transparent with your doctor without withholding any medical history in order make the work of surgeon easy.
Dr Chinsee uses only cohesive silicone gel implants.
In your consultation, Dr Chinsee will formulate a surgical plan with you, encompassing four main options:
- Incision: inframammary (breast crease), periareolar (scar around the nipple), vertical (lollipop/anchor scar, if requiring a full lift)
- Pocket: subglandular (in front of the muscle), dual plane (behind the muscle)
- Shape: round or teardrop shaped implants; gel thickness will also be discussed
- Shell: smooth, textured, polyurethane, nanotextured.
Your implant size is determined predominantly by your existing measurements. Staying within those boundaries ensures a safe, natural result every time.
Using a set of specific breast implant sizers, Dr Chinsee will assist you in making a choice that represents your desired outcome.
Breast augmentation surgery is a day surgery procedure, and is performed under a general anaesthetic administered by a fully qualified anaesthetist. You have the option of two different hospitals depending on your location:
- Canossa Private Hospital (Brisbane)
- Miami Day Hospital (Gold Coast)
How to prepare for your surgery
The preparation should begin at least three weeks before the scheduled operation date.
If you’re a smoker, you need to stop smoking for at least three weeks prior to the surgery.
In addition, if you take medications regularly, you must consult your doctor about whether you need to stop any medications before the surgery.
Medications which can increase bleeding should be discontinued at least two weeks ahead of the breast augmentation. You’ll be advised on what these are at your consultation.
Finally, you need to arrange for someone to take you home on the same day of the surgery. The surgery uses anesthesia; so you’re not advised to drive on your own after the procedure.
The day of surgery
On the day of the surgery, you’ll be admitted to the hospital.
You’ll need to spare around 15 minutes to complete your paperwork, which also includes the signing of the consent form for the surgery.
After finishing the paperwork, the anesthesiologist will visit you and once again will gather information about your past and present medical conditions in order to ensure that the use of anesthesia is safe.
Your surgeon will also visit you prior to the surgery in order to sketch the coordinates for the surgery.
You’ll also have some time before being transferred to the operation theatre to ask any questions about the procedure or aftercare.
After transferring to the operation theatre, the doctor anesthesiologist and his or her assistants will administer anesthesia while you are connected to monitors that give details about your body’s vitals. They will also administer medication in order to prevent any infections following breast enhancement.
Post op appointments
You’ll have a post-operative appointment after one week where the practice nurse or in-house doctor will see you. They will check your incision site and trim any excess suture material.
