Breast Augmentation FAQs
There may be some discomfort requiring medication for 3 to 5 days post-surgery; swelling is normal for up to 4 weeks. Over time the breasts will settle, becoming softer, looking and feeling more natural.
Most patients find the shape of the breasts will continue to improve over a 4-month period.
The breasts can feel hard and look uneven if the scar tissue surrounding the implant contracts – should this happen there may be a short revision necessary. The breasts can also look unnatural if the implant is positioned incorrectly.
The wound can be slow to heal or breakdown if the patient places pressure on the site within the first 3 weeks, therefore all upper bodywork and exercise are not recommended during this period.
Each implant manufacturer has their own guarantee, and this will be given to you as part of the decision-making process.
There is no Medicare coverage, therefore private funds will not cover this procedure.
The procedure costs from $10,000.
