We can help you make the correct choice by showing you these implants and you can try them on in special bras so that you feel and see what you look like obligation free. Hopefully you will trust us to help you achieve the result you want.
Tailoring the Breast Augmentation Operation to Meet Your Requirements
Breasts come in different shapes and sizes with different degrees of droop.
Breast augmentation patients are of different height and body shape. Implants are saline filled or made of different textures of silicone. They come in different shapes and sizes. Two patients of similar build can have quite different preferences and expectations. So obviously, each breast augmentation operation has to be tailored to the individual patient.
A Free Preliminary Breast Augmentation Consultation with our Patient Educators
In our practice we offer all patients requesting breast augmentation a free one-on-one discussion with our patient educators before they see Dr Chan. The educators can give you a lot of information about the operation. They will explain the options and show you photographs of similar patients who have had the operation. They will happily answer your breast augmentation questions and give you a good idea as to the costs involved. Even if you have done a lot of research on this topic it is wise to avail yourself of this free preliminary consultation.
You can then take your time to think about your options in an informed way. Having this preliminary breast augmentation information also helps you in your understanding when you have your consultation with Dr Chan.
Breast augmentation is one of his favourite operations. He has been performing breast augmentation operations and monitoring the advances in techniques and implant design for over 25 years.
Your Breast Augmentation Choices
Dr Chan will discuss your preferences very carefully and explain your options. He will give you his guidance and help tailor your operation to best suit your situation. However the patient makes the final choices such as the type and size of the implant, whether the operation is to be performed through the armpit or in the crease underneath the breast etc. Having the implants put in through an armpit (axillary) incision is the most elegant method of performing the operation in suitable patients. There are no telltale scars on the breast itself as the scars are in the skin crease of the armpit. There are also many other advantages of performing the operation this way. Dr Chan is the only surgeon in Perth who routinely offers this method of doing breast augmentation in suitable patients.
What is the Most Common Disappointment of Breast Augmentation?
The most common disappointment in patients is the development of hardening of the breast after the breast augmentation operation. This is due to the body's healing process forming scar tissue around the implant which contracts and squeezes on the implant causing the breast to harden, a condition called breast capsular contracture.
It is one of our top priorities to minimise this and create a breast that not only looks good but feels and behaves as naturally as possible. We have a strategy that significantly decreases the incidence of this breast hardening problem.
Dr Chan invites you to contact his office to schedule a preliminary appointment to meet and discuss your choices with one of his trained patient educators who can discuss the procedure with you, answer your questions and see examples of results. We encourage you to take advantage of this obligation free complementary service that Dr Chan provides. Dr Chan also offers the availability of implants that carry a lifetime replacement policy.
Your Consultation and What to Bring
It helps to bring a photo of a breast you like so that Dr Chan can understand what you have in mind. However, we cannot promise a final result that matches exactly the appearance since we will need to use your natural breast as the starting point and this can be different to the other person.
It is also advisable to bring along a close fitting top that you like to put on when you are sizing the implant with us. Bring a coloured top, not a white or black top. A white or bright coloured top can make your breast look bigger than it actually is and a black top will make it look smaller.
Breast Augmentation Costs
The written costs of the breast augmentation surgery will be given for you to take home when you have made your choices.
When you decide to have your operation with us, Dr Chan and his staff will always give you the care, support and understanding to help you achieve a happy result.
