Breast Augmentation

As women, we go through our teenage years often considering full, shapely breasts to be our rite of passage and when they just don’t arrive, it can have a devastating affect on our confidence and self-esteem. Few can deny the significant effect breast augmentation can have on a woman’s body image and self-esteem.

Breast augmentation is a cosmetic procedure designed to increase and enhance the size and shape of a woman's breast. There are a large number of options with breast augmentation including implant choice and surgical techniques and Dr. Doyle will discuss these with you depending on the result you are looking to achieve.

Breast augmentation surgery typically takes under 1 hour. The location of the incisions depends on your anatomy, goals, and the type of implant you choose. At Gold Coast Plastic Surgery we make every effort to ensure that your incisions are as small as possible.

During breast augmentation, a space (or pocket) is created under the breast. The implant is then placed behind or in front of the chest muscle, depending on the look you want to achieve. Most patients receive dissolvable stitches and the surgery is usually done as a day surgery procedure.
