Breast Surgery in Newcastle & Sydney NSW by Dr Scott Turner Plastic Surgeon

  • Do you have underdeveloped or overdeveloped breasts?
  • Are you bothered by the appearance of your sagging breasts following pregnancy or significant weight fluctuations?
  • Do you have overly large breasts that cause neck pain and impair your daily activities as well as quality of life?

Breast Surgery can help add or reduce volume or just lift the breast. A breast implant or fat grafting can be used to improved shape, firmness and enhanced body proportions.

That is why Dr Turner offers you the very finest in breast aesthetics – from an assessment with the latest Vectra 3D imaging technologies, best breast implant selection and top surgical techniques, to your long-term follow-up.

What is Breast Surgery?

Breast surgery refers to a group of procedures aimed at enhancing the appearance of your breasts, correcting breast deformities, or reconstructing your breasts after surgical removal. The type of surgery that your breast surgeon will perform will depend on your condition, body type, and aesthetic goals.

Am I Suitable for Breast Surgery?

To ensure that you will receive the best breast surgery, your breast surgeon will assess your condition, health history, amount of breast tissue, lifestyle, and desired cosmetic goals during your consultation. In general, you are a good candidate for breast surgery if:

  • You are in good overall health.
  • You don’t have a bleeding or clotting disorder.
  • You have breast sagging due to ageing, pregnancy, breastfeeding, or significant weight loss.
  • You have complications associated with primary breast surgery.
  • You have a good amount of breast tissue.
  • You have inverted nipples.
  • You have overly large breasts that cause skin irritation, redness, infection, back pain, headaches, and other discomforts.
  • You have realistic expectations regarding the procedure.
  • You want to replace your breast implants.
  • Your breasts are too small or underdeveloped
  • You’re willing to commit to a healthy lifestyle after surgery.

What are the Benefits of having a Breast Procedure

If performed by a top specialist plastic surgeon, a breast surgical procedure can offer the following benefits:

  • Breast contour that is in proportion with the rest of your body
  • Improved body posture
  • Improved breast appearance
  • Improved quality of life
  • Increased self-confidence
  • Lower risk of skin irritation, infection, and other physical discomforts
  • More clothing options
  • Positive outlook in life

The following are the well-known breast procedures:

Recovery after Breast Surgery

It is important to keep in mind that the recovery time after a breast procedure may vary from patient to patient. Some patients may require shorter downtime while others will take several weeks to recover. The length of your recovery will greatly depend on several factors such as the extent and type of your surgery, your healing ability, your body type, and your treatment goals. Immediately after your surgery, you may experience soreness, bruising, and pain on your surgical site. These discomforts can be alleviated by taking pain relievers and anti-inflammatories. To support your healing breasts, you may need to wear a support bra or compression garments. In addition, you will be advised to prevent strenuous exercise and activities to avoid tension on your suture lines.

How much is Breast Surgery? – Costs & Prices

Just like your recovery time, the costs and prices of breast surgery may also vary. This will greatly depend on several factors such as your surgeon’s fees, anaesthetist’s fees, hospital fees, type of surgery and anaesthesia used, and your desired breast surgery results. To get a detailed estimate of the total costs of your procedure, schedule a consultation with a renowned cosmetic surgeon.

FAQs about Breast Procedures

Will a breast procedure increase your risk of breast cancer?

Breast surgery will not increase your risk of getting breast cancer. In addition, having breast implants will not hinder the detection of breast tumors.

Can you have breast implants if you have sagging skin?

This will depend on the degree of skin sagging. If you have extreme sagging of the skin, another procedure may be needed to lift your breasts so that they appear younger and well-defined. Breast implants are recommended for patients with a mild degree of skin sagging. During your consultation with a top surgeon, your breast condition will be first assessed if you are a good candidate for breast implants.

How many months should you delay pregnancy after having breast implants?

It is recommended to postpone pregnancy for at least 6 months after your surgery. This allows your breasts to adjust to its new shape and size.
