Breast Implants Gold Coast & Brisbane
If you wish to have larger, perkier breasts – it may be time you arranged a consultation with Ashbury Cosmetics. The highly experienced team can help you achieve the breast size and shape you’ve always wanted.
The breast implant procedure at Ashbury Cosmetics is versatile and effective. There are two types of implant options; round and anatomical. Round implants are often recommended for patients who wish to focus on enlarging the upper part of the breast. As for anatomical implants, they are more naturally shaped like a tear drop and give a more natural effect in general.
A breast implant consists of a silicone elastomer casing or envelope which is usually filled with silicone gel or a soft cohesive silicone gel that has a shape retaining memory. Implants can also be filled with a saline solution. Silicone gel and the saline (salt-water) solution are the best-known and most extensively researched fillers.
The casing in which the silicone is placed also presents a variety of options with differences in material, texture and formation being points to consider before going ahead with treatment.
What to Expect
After you have had your breast implant surgery, there are some effects to be expected.
Swelling is often apparent for about three to five weeks after surgery, while scars can take closer to six weeks before they settle – eventually fading significantly.
Patients are able to return home on the same day of surgery and tend to experience the most pain 24-48 hours post procedure. Any discomfort can often be controlled by medication prescribed by the doctor. Patients should also avoid strenuous activity for at least a month after surgery.

The most common complication connected to breast implant surgery, capsular contracture is where the membrane that grows around the implant, which usually cannot be felt or seen, behaves in a similar fashion to shrink wrap.
There are now breast implants available in Australia, at Ashbury Cosmetics that can reduce the risk of capsular contracture to roughly 1%.
There has been no evidence found to suggest that silicone implants can filter through to the breast milk and it remains possible for a woman to breast feed effectively and without difficulty after a breast implant has been placed, providing no surgical damage is made to the milk ducts (a risk most commonly associated with an areolar incision)
Products in which silicone regularly occur include:
- Heart valves, suture materials and blood bags
- Puddings, cakes and soft drinks
- Body lotions and sun cream
- Bedding, clothing and tissues
- Baby-care products
Breast implant surgery has shown no associated increase in the incidence of breast cancer and a woman’s ability to examine effectively or undergo mammograms is left possible although screening can prove more involved. It is advisable that you consult with your doctor as to the most effective way of self-examining your breast when checking for breast cancer, so that you are able to determine your implant from your natural tissue with greater clarity.
Age is not an issue when it comes to breast augmentation. It is the overall health of the person that counts most when considering suitability. Many women over the age of forty have had successful breast surgery.
Ashbury Cosmetics has performed thousands of breasts surgery with minimal complications. However, any surgical operation involves the risk of complications or side effects. After-effects of the anaesthetic, infection of the wound, swelling, bleeding, pain, and healing problems in the recovery process may occur. These are all things for which you should be prepared.
In addition, specific complications may occur following the insertion of breast implants, including:
Folds and wrinkling in the surface of the implant. This occurs with saline-filled implants in particular. The risk of folds and wrinkling is greater with this type of implant than with gel-filled implants.
Displacement of the implant.
Tissue necrosis i.e. the death of tissue, often due to insufficient blood supply to the area concerned.
Interference with mammograms. Mammographic screening for breast cancer is more difficult in the presence of a silicone breast implant and may need extra attention from the radiologist.
Finally, it is important to remember that a breast implant, whatever it is filled with, is not necessarily in place for life. There are women who have had the same breast implants in place for over thirty years without problems, but there are also women who have had to have their implants replaced within a relatively short period of time. For these reasons, you should be aware that you may need to undergo surgery on your breasts again for reasons relating to your breast implants.
