Breast enlargement in Perth or ‘breast augmentation mammaplasty’ is a cosmetic procedure to enlarge and improve the shape of a woman’s breasts by the insertion of breast implants. The procedure – referred to by some as a ‘boob job’ in Perth – can also correct slight sagging of the breasts and increase firmness.

Breast implants are placed behind the breast tissue either in front of or behind the pectoral muscle. A small incision is made either under the breast, around the nipple or in the armpit. Your Specialist Plastic Surgeon will determine the most suitable approach for you.
Breast augmentation in Perth is performed in an accredited hospital. You can expect to be discharged that same day or in some cases, the next day. You will need to attend a post-operative consultation approximately 5-7 days after breast enlargement surgery, and again 6 weeks later.
Scars are an inevitable result of any surgery. However, with breast enlargement they are only a few centimetres long and fade with time. They are positioned so they are barely noticeable.
Unwanted side effects from breast augmentation are uncommon. They include one implant becoming fixed in a slightly higher or lower position than the other, or a capsule of scar tissue forming around the implant. There are rare incidences of what is known as Breast Implant Associated-Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma (BIA-ALCL) – please click here for more information. Breast implants do not interfere with breastfeeding.
Your surgeon will discuss all risks of breast augmentation surgery with you during your consultation.
A post-operative care plan will be discussed with you before and after your procedure. Post-operative reviews will also be scheduled with your Specialist Plastic Surgeon at 2 and 6 weeks after surgery and later at 6 months.
You can expect some bruising and swelling for a few weeks after surgery. Returning to work and your normal activities is an individual matter, and your Specialist Plastic Surgeon will advise you.
Most patients are back to their regular routine in 2-3 weeks, although resuming strenuous exercise may take a little longer. Depending on your type of work, you can expect to resume work 1-6 weeks after breast enlargement surgery.
There is no set lifespan of breast implants, but you may have to change or remove them at some stage during your lifetime.
