Breast augmentation with breast implants can enhance your appearance and your self-confidence, enlarging your breasts and making them more proportional with the rest of your body. Breast augmentation can also be used to correct differences in the size of your breasts or sagging breasts which can occur after pregnancy and breast-feeding.
Dr Charles Cope is one of only two surgeons in Sydney with the exciting VECTRA XT 3D imaging system, which is the latest 3D technology that allows you to see the expected result during your consultation.
The VECTRA takes a 3D image of your breasts then allows you to see what your breasts would look like with different size implants, helping you to make a more informed decision about your implant size. You can see what your breasts will look like before you even have the surgery! See some examples of how reliable the Vectra can be for predicting the postoperative result of breast augmentation here.
Breast reduction surgery is a common plastic surgery procedure that significantly improves the symptoms from large breasts, and has a high degree of patient satisfaction. It allows patients to be more active and enjoy normal everyday activites.
Women often experience changes in their breasts with time and after pregnancy and breast-feeding, or weight loss. A Breast lift surgery removes the loose saggy skin, lifting the nipple and breast into a higher position, enhancing your appearance and your self-confidence. If there are minor differences between the breasts then these differences can be made less at the time of surgery.
Some patients with loose skin can achieve a lift from having breast implants alone, which has less obvious scars than a breast lift, but it depends on how much loose skin you have and how much bigger you are prepared to be. Some patients choose to have both a lift and breast implants, producing larger, firmer breasts.
Breast surgery is commonly performed at the same time as an abdominoplasty (tummy-tuck) or liposuction, to improve the shape and tone of your abdomen.
Male breast enlargement can cause embarrassment, with problems wearing tight tee-shirts and other fitted clothing, and can limit activities such as going to the beach and swimming. Male breast reduction will reduce the prominent breast tissue bringing the contour back to normal. It will improve your self-confidence and allow you to wear the clothing you wish to wear and to participate in activities such as swimming normally.
Correction of inverted or prominent nipples is a simple procedure with minimal downtime that improves your self-confidence.
