FIND A PLASTIC OR COSMETIC SURGEON FOR BREAST AUGMENTATION IN MELBOURNE
If you are based in Melbourne and are considering a breast augmentation, breast lift, breast reduction, you might be looking to undergo a mammoplasty or mamaplasty, or in other words, a boob job!
Breast augmentation is designed to enlarge, reduce or tweak the appearance or positioning of your breasts to enhance their shape and aesthetic appearance.
Which is better: Saline or Silicone Breast Implants?
What are Saline Breast Implants?
Saline breast implants are made of silicone but filled with saline, or salt water. They are inserted first and once in place are filled with the sterile salt water.
What are Silicone Breast Implants?
Silicone breast implants are also encased in a silicone shell but are filled with liquid silicone – a thick, sticky fluid similar in consistency to human fat but is in fact a plastic gel. Although it is generally agreed that silicone feel more “real” than saline, they come with a greater risk to your body if they burst (saline is absorbed back into the body, whereas silicone is not).
Discuss these options with your surgeon – they will suggest what might be best for you.
What does the Breast Implant procedure involve?
The Breast Implant procedure takes one to two hours unless there are complications or additional work. Typically done under a general anesthesia, the surgeon makes incisions in the appropriate places based on what the desired outcome is (under the breasts, around the nipples, under the arms for a lift, etc.). The implants can be placed either under or over your body muscles; dependent on what best suits your body. Again, discuss these options with your surgeon.

Rhinoplasty, or nose job, is a procedure to alter the shape or size of your nose to improve its appearance, structural abnormalities or function (for those with breathing issues).

What does the Rhinoplasty procedure involve?
The Rhinoplasty procedure takes anywhere between one to three hours, depending on the amount of work involved. Rhinoplasty can be performed under general or local anesthetic. You may not necessarily have to stay overnight in hospital and may be allowed to go home after a few hours. You may have blackness around your eyes and swelling for a few days after the surgery but that mostly disappears within 10 days.
FIND A PLASTIC OR COSMETIC SURGEON FOR LIPOSUCTION OR TUMMY TUCK IN MELBOURNE
Liposuction, also known as lipoplasty, liposculpture, fat sculpture or fat removal, or a tummy tuck is a procedure to remove fat from your body. It can be performed on almost any area of the body including the most popular areas; stomach, hips, buttock, thighs, arms and neck. There are limits to the amount of fat able to be removed in one session so is not an option to treat obesity. It is also not a solution for cellulite.
