What are the Benefits of Breast Augmentation?
Breast Augmentation surgery can improve fullness and shape to create a beautiful, natural-looking breast. You may have lost shape or volume of your breasts due to the process of ageing, breastfeeding or significant weight loss or you may have breasts that did not develop during puberty. This is why breast augmentation surgery has become the most common cosmetic surgery procedure that Dr Scott Turner performs.
Are you suitable for a Breast Augmentation?
You may be a candidate for breast implant surgery if you answer “yes” to any of the following questions:
• Do you want to increase your breast size – bigger breasts?
• Do you want enhanced cleavage and upper pole fullness – perkier breasts?
• Do you wish to improve your breast and torso proportions?
• Do you feel your breasts are different in size or shape – breast asymmetry?
• Do you feel a breast enhancement could boost your confidence and self-esteem?
There are certain factors that should also be considered when determining if you are a good candidate for breast augmentation surgery. Generally speaking, candidates should:
• Be in generally good health, with no medical conditions that impair healing or increase surgical risk
• Be at a stable weight
• Be a non-smoker
• Be positive and have realistic expectations about what a breast implant can achieve

About Breast Implant Surgery
Dr Turner prefers Mentor silicone breast implants as they are a safer, more reliable and natural option compared to saline implants. As this is an invasive surgical procedure, breast augmentation is performed under a general anaesthetic in a fully accredited hospital under the care of a qualified anaesthetist. The procedure will take between one to two hours and in most cases, you are discharged the same day with no overnight stay required.
To perform breast augmentation, a small incision is required to allow for opening the pocket where the implant is then placed. Dr Turner prefers to use an inframammary fold (IMF) incision under the breast as it provides optimal exposure to the underlying breast tissue and pectoralis muscle to allow accurate placement of the implant. At the patient’s discretion, Dr Turner can use The Keller Funnel 2 to minimize infection which can lead to capsular contracture.

Your Breast Implants Options & Choices
Dr Turner uses Motiva and Mentor Implants – visit our Breast Implant Options & Choices page for more information about the many different Implant options – Brands, Sizes, Profiles, Shapes, Surface Textures, Positioning and Incisions.
Breast implants have advanced significantly since the days of runny, liquid silicone or saline breast implants. Combined with improved surgical techniques, the refinements in the composition of the inner silicone gel with more resilient outer implant shell have made breast augmentation surgery safer with more reliable and natural results.
Prior to your breast augmentation surgery, it is essential that you have a clear understanding of the procedure and are confident in your decision. To help you choose, you can get hands-on to touch and feel the breast implants, so you have a better idea of what they will be like in your body.
What to Expect on the Day of Breast Augmentation Surgery
Before your procedure, Dr Turner will make sure that you are comfortable and don’t have any last-minute questions. Dr Turner will draw on your breast to plan the ideal placement of the breast implant, as well as the intended incision used to place the breast implant.
The breast augmentation is performed under general anaesthesia in a fully accredited private hospital with the assistance of a qualified anaesthetist. Breast Implant surgery takes between one and two hours, and generally, you are discharged home the same day, no overnight stay required.
Breast Augmentation Surgery Aftercare
At the completion of your surgery, Dr Turner will apply dressings to the incision site to aid wound healing. All sutures used self-dissolve, so no post-op suture removal is necessary. You will be placed in a surgical garment in the recovery room when you are fully awake and comfortable. It is important to wear the garment full time for the first month to assist wound healing and settling of the new breast shape.
Patients report mild post-operative pain, which is treated with oral medication. You will be given a prescription for pain management. Have someone fill the prescription, drive you home and take care of you as you recover during the first few days after your surgery.
You can return to your normal activities at a slow and gradual pace. You may be back to work as soon as one week after breast augmentation surgery and may begin light exercise at two weeks. Most activities can be resumed fully at six weeks following your procedure.
You will have an appointment to see Dr Turner within the first week after surgery to check that your wounds are healing as expected and to review your new breast shape. Dr Turner will see you frequently over the first year to monitor your progress and will give you advice on scar management, wearing garments and resuming normal activities.
It is extremely important to your final result that you follow all post-operative instructions given to you by Dr Turner.
Recovery after Breast Implant Surgery
Dr Turner recommends that patients who undergo breast augmentation rest for at least 7-10 days following the procedure. During this time, activity should be kept to a minimum. Patients can return to work after 7 days and expect a full recovery within 6-8 weeks although this differs for each individual.
What are the Risks and Complications of Breast Surgery?
As with any surgery, it is important that you are fully informed of ALL the potential risks associated with breast augmentation surgery. While all care is taken to minimize these complications, they may and do occur despite the best medical care. It is important that you carefully read and understand the potential risks and they will be discussed in further detail when you have your consultation with Dr Turner.
