Breast Enlargement (Augmentation)

The way in which a woman views her breasts can dramatically affect her self-image. A lack of breast volume or an asymmetrical breast appearance can lower one’s level of confidence and even discourage some women from wearing certain articles of clothing. At The Lotus Clinic, a breast augmentation from Dr. Chandra Patel can be an excellent option for patients seeking to enhance the size, shape, and symmetry of their breasts. As a fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons, Dr. Patel has been performing breast augmentation surgeries for over 25 years and can help you achieve the contours and proportions you desire for your breasts. Utilising state-of-the-art technologies, Dr. Patel will work with you during a one-on-one consultation to help you determine the proper size and type of breast implants for your cosmetic goals.

Benefits of a Breast Augmentation
Breast shapes and sizes can be affected by a number of different factors including genetics, weight fluctuations, and pregnancy. A breast augmentation with implants can effectively add volume to your breasts while providing a natural look and feel. Breast enlargement can also help to improve the proportions of your body, ultimately having a positive effect on your overall appearance. Dr. Patel and our experienced staff believe in a customised approach to every breast enhancement procedure. For this reason, we offer both silicone and saline breast implants in a variety of shapes and sizes to better achieve the results you desire.
The Breast Augmentation Procedure
As an outpatient surgery, the breast augmentation procedure is performed under general anesthesia. Implants can be inserted through the armpits, under the breasts, or around your nipples in an effort to minimise visible scarring. Dr. Patel can generally perform the entire procedure in about one hour depending on the type and placement of your implant in relation to your chest muscle.
Breast Augmentation Recovery
Recovery from breast augmentation surgery will vary per individual. Most patients are able to return home the day of the operation but may need some supervision and assistance for the remainder of the day. There will be some temporary swelling and bruising after the procedure; however, any discomfort can be effectively alleviated with medication.
You can expect to return to your normal daily routine after about one week, but Dr. Patel recommends that you refrain from any strenuous physical activity for at least two to three weeks. Additionally, Dr. Patel will need to check on your progress on a periodic basis. He will discuss a personalized recovery plan with you at the time of your consultation.
