Saline or Silicone breast implants?
Breast Implants Melbourne offers different types of breast implants. Saline-filled breast implants, or implants that were filled with sterile salt water, were popularly used before because the old version of the silicone implants tends to easily rupture and leak. However, saline implants have the tendency to ripple heavily and may be visibly palpable because its density is very different from a natural breast tissue. More and more cosmetic surgery facilities choose to use silicone breast implants as they now have a thicker silicone shell, making them look and feel more like a natural breast.
Round or teardrop breast implants?
Round breast implants form more upper breast fullness while teardrop implants form an attractive and natural drape on the lower part of the breast, making it look more natural from the collarbone to the nipple area. Round implants can be inserted through any augmentation incision site, while teardrop implants need to be inserted only through an incision under the breast or along the breast folds. Both provide fuller forms of the breasts and the choice relies on the patient’s preference and what is suitable for their body build. Contact Breast Implants Melbourne to know what suits your preference.

All About Breast Augmentation
Breast Implants: Under The Muscle Or In Front Of The Muscle
- Submuscular (Under the Muscle)
The breast implant will be inserted under the pectoral muscle or your chest muscle, creating a natural appearance because the muscle provides extra coverage on the sides of the implant, preventing any incidence of wrinkling or rippling. This approach is said to lessen the chances of capsular contracture, eventual sagging of the breast, and noted interference on breastfeeding.
- Subglandular (Over/In front of the Muscle)
The breast implant is placed in between the breast tissue itself and the pectoral muscle. This approach is preferred for those with mild sagging of the breast, and those who put excess force in the chest muscle like athletes, weightlifters, or heavy builders.
Breast Implants Melbourne offers both approaches depending on your preference and the condition of your physique. Discuss with your Melbourne surgeon these options.
Incision Site Options
This is the incision along the breast fold or your “underboob”. The most popular among all the incision types, any size of breast implant can be inserted through this site. Since it is located below the breast, drains after surgery will not be necessary as gravity will do its part in draining the surgical wound. The only concern for this type is the scarring because although it is covered when the patient is standing, it is visible while lying down. Moreover, Melbourne patients with brown skin may tend to have their scars be more visible.
This incision site is found on an unnoticeable fold on the armpit. No scar will be found on the breast and this route is more preferable for patients with brown skin or who are keloid formers. The downside of this site is that only round breast implants can be inserted. After the surgery, drains are always inserted to facilitate drainage of the surgical site. Moreover, if there will be any revision that needs to be done, a new incision preferably the inframammary route will be utilized.
This is done with the incision present around the edge of the areola. Since the site is near the pigmented part of the breast, scarring will almost be invisible. However, such a small incision site could limit the size of the implant to be inserted. Also, during the procedure, milk ducts around the nipple may be prone to damage and may, therefore, affect breastfeeding in the future. Moreover, like the transaxillary site, another incision would be performed if repair in the future is needed.
This breast augmentation site is located through the navel. No visible incision or scarring will be visible near the breast. This is not a popular or common site used for breast augmentation in Australia. It is too far from the breast that use of anesthesia may be a bit of a challenge. Also, during the procedure, some surgical instruments may leave indentations on the abdominal area. And just like any other incision site that is not inframammary, a second incision site will be needed if future repair of the implant is required.

Things to expect after surgery
- More often than not, Melbourne patients are allowed to go home the same day the procedure was performed. However, you must secure someone to drive for you since the effect of the anesthesia is still present in your body.
- Drains, if any, will be removed the next day and your breasts may be supported by dressing gauzes, bandages, or a surgical support bra that will also assist in gaining your breast shape.
- Your breasts may look swollen and feel hard and painful. Your cosmetic/reconstructive surgeon will be prescribing you with medications to alleviate these discomforts.
- You are expected to report to your cosmetic/reconstructive surgeon regularly during this time to review and assess the overall condition of your breasts and the implants.
- You are prohibited from doing any strenuous activity that would strain or present force to your chest.
- Sleeping position to best suit you would be on your back with some pillows propped to give additional support on your breasts.
- Your Breast Implants Melbourne surgeon may allow you to return to work with some restrictions with regard to movement and exertion. Upper body exercises may also be gradually allowed.
- Your desired shape and size will be noticeable during this time as the swelling, bruising, and/or pain would have subsided by now.
- Your cosmetic/reconstructive surgeon will require you for regular check-ups and several routine mammograms to further assess the status and integrity of the breast augmentation procedure.
