Before and after images
The ultimate aim of breast augmentation is to enhance the breasts that you already have. Careful selection of your surgeon is crucial to give you the best chance of achieving your desired result. Satisfaction with your new breasts can then lead to further benefits including improved body image and self-esteem. I look forward to meeting with you to discuss your specific concerns and advise you of what results can be achieved through breast augmentation.
Dr Chris Moss answers common questions regarding Breast Augmentation
To many women, body image is very important and often certain factors such as pregnancy, heredity, weight fluctuation or ageing can change the shape and appearance of your breasts resulting in a lack of self-confidence.
Depending upon your individual needs and desires, I am able to offer a range of the most up-to-date breast surgery techniques for breast augmentation. I understand that your reasons for wanting breast enhancement are very personal and will work with you to determine your individual needs, desires and expectations.
Choosing to undergo any plastic surgery procedure is a very important decision, as is selecting the plastic surgeon. Dr Moss has performed over 1500 breast augmentation (implant) surgical procedures for enhancement of breast shape and size. Every possible step is taken during Dr Moss’ breast augmentation surgeries in order to produce the most natural appearing breast with optimal safety. All surgery is performed at a fully accredited and state of the art facility at The Avenue Hospital in Windsor. Surgery is usually performed as a day stay however you can stay overnight if you prefer.
Embarking on breast augmentation can be very daunting at first. The best breast size and shape for you is a very individual decision and depends on your personal feelings, wishes, and what your body tissues will allow you to have. There are a number of decisions to be made. These include implant size, shape, and placement, incision site and your preference for silicone or saline. Each of these options is thoroughly discussed and your surgical plan is tailored to your individual requirements. Naturally, satisfaction with your breast surgery depends on you having realistic expectations of what can be achieved for you personally.
It is completely reasonable to want to have ‘normal’ breasts or to want to be your best. Obviously it would be wonderful if you were happy with the breasts nature has given you. However, if this is not the case, then you have the option of breast augmentation which is now the third most common cosmetic surgery procedure for women. Although the “Baywatch breast” always gets a lot of press, the vast majority of women I see request a natural appearance to their breast enhancement.
There are two main groups of women who typically consider breast augmentation: those whose breasts developed inadequately (either small size, uneven size or abnormal shape) and those whose breasts lost shape and fullness after pregnancy. A third group of women have other personal reasons for wanting to enhance their breasts. Some try to correct their problem with push-up bras and inserts however these options do not work well to improve a woman’s body image.
All surgery, even in expert hands, has risks. When surgery is performed by a trained and experience plastic surgeon such as myself, complications rarely occur. During the consultation I carefully explain the possible risks of your surgery so that you can make an informed decision.
At this time there is no scientific evidence that implants cause health problems in breast-fed children.
I have a strict after-care protocol aimed at reducing any discomfort right from the outset. Pain control medications are provided. True, there is a degree of discomfort or pain in the first few days, but despite this, one of the most important things you can do is get moving. The trick is to use enough pain medication to allow gentle upper body movement as this helps you recover more quickly.
Most of my patients prefer day surgery but it is important that they have someone to care for them overnight. Some patients choose to stay overnight in hospital.
A routine recovery to everyday activities is rapid and usually always within 24 hours. This includes caring for small children. Recovery time varies for individuals depending on their motivation, tissues and procedure. By treating your tissues gently at surgery, the surgical trauma is minimized and your recovery is both shorter and easier. It is very important to follow your after-care instructions. By doing this you will speed up your recovery time.
It is important to avoid any aerobic exercise for the first two weeks. If you have an office job it is very common to be back to work after a few days. For more physical work it usually takes about two weeks.
