Breast Augmentation (Implants) Sydney NSW

Are you unhappy with your natural breast size? Do you find that you lack confidence in many areas of your life as a result of your chest size? You may find that the breast augmentation surgery is a viable solution for you to get the silhouette that you’ve been long dreaming of.

Breast augmentation surgery involves the placement of an implant either in front or behind the pectoral muscle, creating a smooth and natural looking increase in breast size. The surgery takes between 1-2 hours and does not require an overnight hospital stay. We provide breast augmentation in the Sydney area and though have predominately serviced those in the regions of ParramattaAlburyBella Vista and the Central Coast.

The total cost for breast augmentation in Sydney, including all surgical and aftercare fees, cost of implants and hospital fees can vary based upon on a number of factors. Your consultation with Dr Laniewski will cover each of these factors. As well as the details of the breast enhancement procedure. To ensure you choose the best surgeon for your breast enhancement surgery take the time to do thorough research and book a face-to-face consult with Dr Laniewski.

BREAST IMPLANTS TYPES

Breast implants available for breast enlargement surgery include saline filled or cohesive silicone-gel filled. Breast implants are manufactured in round and teardrop shapes. The one that is best for you will depend on your shape and on your cosmetic goals.

SALINE-FILLED

Saline implants have a silicone outer shell filled with a medical-grade saline solution. During the enlargement we fill the breast implant through a valve. This allows us to achieve a custom result to meet your cosmetic needs.

COHESIVE SILICONE GEL-FILLED

Cohesive silicone gel-filled breast implants are the preferred choice in implants across Sydney and Australia. The consistency of the silicone reduced the risks of postoperative leakage problems. These implants generally feel softer to the touch and more like natural breasts than saline implants.

SIZE, SHAPES AND FORMS

Your body shape and personal preferences are the key deciding factors when it comes to selecting the best breast implant size for your enhancement surgery. During your consultation with us, your desired breast enhancement size will be discussed. It can be very helpful to view before and after images of our previous patients. This can help you to understand the enlargement shape that may be right for you.

Breast implants are generally offered in two forms: round or teardrop (anatomical) shaped.

Round, depending on their fill, offer a defined round shape or assume more of a teardrop form when the patient is upright. They tend to provide more upper half breast fullness than anatomical implants.

Anatomical implants (teardrop) demand a greater degree of accuracy in positioning during the enlargement procedure. If they shift after enhancement surgery, the shape may be distorted.

Anatomical breast implants can provide greater projection in proportion to the size of the base, making them particularly suitable for women with little natural tissue or those who desire a lift – particularly in reconstructive circumstances.

BREAST AUGMENTATION INCISION SITES

Our preferred incision methods for breast enlargement are inframammary and transaxillary. They offer more predictable results with better exposure and placement of the implant when compared to other incision types.

The inframammary incision allows the breast implant to be placed in a precise pocket formation. This also offers more control for bleeding. 

The transaxillary incision is made in the natural crease of the armpit. A channel is fashioned down to the breast. The scar is virtually invisible in the armpit fold and lack of tension generally makes for more straightforward healing.

BREAST IMPLANT PLACEMENT

Placement of the implant can help determine the end result of breast augmentation, so it’s important we discuss the options available as well as the suitability of each option for your individual body type.

SUBGLANDULAR

In case of subglandular placement, Dr Laniewski will create a pocket between the breast tissue and the pectoral muscle. The breast implant is positioned in front of the muscle. This enlargement procedure is faster and may be more comfortable for the patient than submuscular placement.

SUBMUSCULAR

The breast implant is placed under the pectoralis major muscle, with most of the implant settled under the muscle. This position creates the most natural-looking contour. There is also a decreased chance of visible and palpable implant edges or rippling.

DUAL PLANE

The breast implant is placed partially beneath the pectoral muscle in the upper pole. The lower half of the implant will be in the subglandular plane. This position involves more complex enhancement surgery but minimises the rippling and edge effect in thin patients while avoiding abnormal contours in the lower half.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does breast augmentation cost in Sydney?

We know just how much cost can factor into your decision to undergo breast augmentation surgery. The truth is that there is rarely a one-size cost for all patients who undergo this elective surgery. There are a range of costs to consider, beyond just the fees paid to your surgeon. The best way to determine what your breast implant surgery will cost is to meet with your surgeon and discuss your cosmetic goals.

In addition to the fees to your surgeon, you could need to pay the hospital costs, anaesthetist’s fees, and also pay for additional postoperative check-up fees. You may also need to pay out of pocket for support and compression garments that will help to enhance your results after surgery. You may also need to factor in the cost of missing up to two weeks of work, transportation costs and potentially the costs of a carer to help you after your surgery.

The best way to determine your costs for the surgery is to consult with Dr Laniewski.

How visible will scars be?

The breast augmentation surgery is a common cosmetic surgery. It is, however, still a major surgery. All surgeries will have accompanying scars. Your surgeon will have skilled techniques to reduce the appearance of scars. The visibility of scars will also depend on the type of implants that you are opting for. Saline implants tend to have minimal scarring, as they can be inserted into the chest cavity before they have been filled. Surgical incisions will be strategically placed in order to minimise your scarring. Additionally, there are scar treatments that you can consider after your procedure, to help minimise the appearance of the scars that you do have.

How long will my implants last?

There are so many factors that can impact the length of time that your implants last. Generally speaking, your implants can last for a decade, or longer. The type of implant you have, along with your lifestyle and other factors, can have an impact on how long they last. The vast majority of patients find that they benefit from replacing their implants every 10 years. Not only does this allow for a refreshed youthful silhouette, but it reduces the risk of the implants bursting or leaking as time marches on.

How much does the breast augmentation procedure hurt?

During your breast implant surgery, you will not feel anything. When you wake up after surgery, you may feel some discomfort and tightness across your chest. Your surgeon will offer pain relievers as needed. Most patients find that they need just over-the-counter pain relievers after the first few postoperative days.

Can I still breastfeed after getting implants?


While there are no guarantees about your ability to still breastfeed, you’ll find that with advanced surgical techniques, many women maintain their ability to nurse. Dr Laniewski will preserve the nipples and the milk ducts so that breastfeeding can still remain a possibility for you. Be sure to mention during your consultation your hopes to breastfeed one day in the future.

What should I expect after my surgery?

Your incisions will be closed with small stitches that will dissolve. This will help to reduce the appearance of scarring. You will need to have someone drive you home after your surgery, and it could be helpful to have someone help you at home for the first two or so days.

The majority of breast augmentation patients report that they feel more aching and a sensation of tightness versus pain. Your breasts will feel quite tight for several postoperative days. It is very common to have a fair amount of swelling after any surgical procedure. This will gradually decrease as the swelling decreases. There may be some minor bruising but this should heal within a week. After a week of healing, you should have much more mobility and flexibility. Your swelling should decrease significantly. Your final results will be more apparent.
