Women who struggle with the current appearance of their breast may express difficulty feeling sexy, feminine or even comfortable in certain clothing. Many patients feel their breasts are too big or too small, asymmetrical or disproportionate, drooping or sagging or otherwise aesthetically unappealing. Breast augmentation in Sydney can be an excellent option to consider if you want to achieve a long-term solution, as a breast augmentation can help women address these concerns and achieve their ideal bust size. The decision to undergo breast surgery can improve your quality of life and correct any visible imperfections that can distract from your natural beauty and overall appearance.
It’s important to remember that breast augmentation can come with some risks. This is why it is imperative to find a licensed and experienced surgeon with a special focus on breast surgery. Proper technique, combined with state-of-the-art medical equipment and high-end devices, such as breast implants, can also help to reduce surgical risks and risks of rejection or prosthetic complications.
Your surgeon should be able to help you feel more comfortable and confident about the procedure and provide you with careful instructions about aftercare, follow-up appointments, and any potential breast augmentation risks and side effects. They should also provide you with instructions or recommendations on how to handle an emergency situation.

How is Breast Augmentation Surgery Performed?
Breast surgery is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures performed annually in Australia. Women of all ages can enjoy the benefits of breast implants. In many cases, patients opt to combine their breast augmentation with another procedure, such as a breast lift, to help combat the signs of aging such as sagging or loose skin. This will affect the procedure used during the actual surgery, so be sure to discuss any details with your surgeon beforehand. The style, size and shape of the desired implants can also determine how your breast augmentation will be performed.
In Sydney, breast augmentation is performed under general anaesthesia. This means that patients are fully asleep during the surgery and it can help reduce any stress, anxiety or fear about the procedure.
If you have an issue with anaesthesia or a medical condition that will not allow for full sedation, be sure to mention it to your surgeon!
Incision placement will also vary per patient, though the most common placement is along the natural folds of the breast, also known as Inframammary. Other incision placements include:
- Periareolar, or along the areola. This helps to hide the scar and can be recommended for patients who want to reshape their nipples.
- Transaxillary, or through the underarms. This is recommended for patients who are prone to keloids or want to avoid any visible scarring.
Understanding Potential Risks of Breast Augmentation Surgery
Plastic surgery is a big decision! Breast augmentation risks are not to be taken lightly, and it’s important to be educated before getting breast implants. Naturally, there are some normal side effects after breast augmentation surgery, such as swelling and bruising, temporary pain and feelings of tightness near the surgical site or in the chest. Thankfully, most patients breeze right through this phase with help from medication prescribed by your surgeon and by taking it easy in bed.
However, some patients might notice some complications or problems after the breast augmentation that may be cause for concern. If you notice any of the following symptoms, be sure to contact your surgeon:
- Hardening of the breast tissue or area around the implants
- Capsizing or rotation of the implant
- Creases, folds or wrinkles that are noticeable beneath the skin
- Scarring that is thick, dark or does not fade
- Ruptures of the implant, which could lead to leakage or deflation
- Small lumps, often a side effect of leaking, called silicone granulomas
- Infection, haematoma or other surgical side effects
- Nerve damage to the nipples or the breast tissue
- Allergic reactions to the anaesthesia, implants or aftercare

Other risks of breast augmentation surgery include personal complications, such as dissatisfaction with the results, or changes to the body over time. It’s important to remember that breast augmentation is not a permanent procedure and there is no guarantee that your results will be exactly what you pictured. Having realistic expectations and talking candidly with your surgeon can help you be fully prepared for what to expect from breast augmentation surgery in Sydney.
