We’re here to provide you with as much information and answers throughout your experience with Cosmetic Avenue. We believe in an ethical, honest and transparent approach to cosmetic surgery. Below you’ll find a lot of answers to the questions you may have.
Breast augmentation, also known as breast implant or breast enlargement surgery, refers to a cosmetic procedure where the breasts are enlarged or enhanced using implants placed under the breast tissue or chest muscles.
A breast lift refers to a surgical procedure where excess skin and breast tissue is removed to lift the position of existing breasts. With a breast reduction, skin and breast tissue are removed to reduce the size and weight of large breasts.
At Cosmetic Avenue we pride ourselves in being specialists at breast implant surgery, and therefore do not offer breast lift or reduction procedures.
Breast augmentation is a personal decision and there are many reasons why a woman would choose to get breast implants. Some reasons may be to enlarge small breasts, a wish to wear a particular style of clothing, a desire for a more feminine shape, or restoring the size and shape of breasts that have changed due to pregnancy or breastfeeding.
Whatever your reason, at Cosmetic Avenue our goal is to help you feel confident and assured in your body.
This can be a concern for many patients, however the placement of breast implants does not affect milk production or the glands used for breastfeeding. You can be confident you’ll still be able to breastfeed following your procedure.
Everyone has different desired outcomes from their breast implants and our surgeons will discuss with you all your options and expected results.
To get the best results from your surgery, it’s important you are in good physical health and generally pretty happy with your body, and just have a desire to enhance the size or shape of your breasts.
Our team are dedicated to ensuring you feel confident and supported throughout your cosmetic surgery procedure, from your initial consultation through to your check-ups. Our comprehensive aftercare is an essential part of our process and all follow up appointments
Choosing what size breast implant to get can be a very difficult decision. There are a lot of factors that go into deciding which implant is best for you and not every size will suit your body type.
Our cosmetic surgeons are experts in breast augmentation and your surgeon will consider your weight, height, chest shape and size of your existing breasts to help you select an implant that will give you the results you desire.
Patient safety is our top concern and a great deal of medical research has been done on the safety of silicone breast implants, showing them to be safe and effective for use. Cosmetic Avenue have also conducted our own research and use premium, high quality silicone gel implants which are approved under the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) and come with a lifetime warranty against rupture and leakage.
As with any surgery, there are always some risks involved. However, the surgeons at Cosmetic Avenue are specialists in breast augmentation, having performed this procedure hundreds of times. Your surgeon will take you through all the risks during your consultation, and answer any specific questions you may have.
Opting to get cosmetic surgery is a personal decision and one that shouldn’t be taken lightly. While choosing the right surgeon can minimise the chance of complications, the changes to your body are usually permanent.
It’s important that you don’t rush into the decision to have surgery, or opt to have surgery as a reaction to a specific situation in your life. While cosmetic surgery can help enhance your appearance, it won’t solve underlying issues that you might be going through.
Ultimately, our focus is on ensuring you feel confident about your decision, which is why we ask plenty of questions to understand your motivations for your surgery and the results you hope to achieve. If you have any questions about whether cosmetic surgery is right for you, we encourage you to chat with your Cosmetic Consultant or your surgeon prior to surgery.
