FAQ

01

Will I still be able to breastfeed?

accordion arrow

Breast implant surgery does not alter your ability to breastfeed. However, breast reduction and lift procedures may reduce the potential for breastfeeding as they affect more of the breast tissue.

02

Do breast implants need to be replaced every ten years?

accordion arrow

No, they do not need to be routinely replaced. If there are problems with the implants, these are addressed if they occur.

03

If I have a breast reduction, can the breasts grow larger again?

accordion arrow

The procedure should only be necessary once. However, if you gain a significant amount of weight or have large hormone increases, your breasts may increase in size.

04

Does fat transferred from one part of my body to my breasts stay long term?

accordion arrow

Yes. After three months, the retained fat volume is stable and permanent from that point on.

05

Can anything be done about scarring?

accordion arrow

Generally, breast scars heal well. We provide patients with silicone gel to apply to scars after surgery. Occasionally, injection or laser treatment is used to reduce scarring.

06

Will I achieve a specific bra cup size that I want?

accordion arrow

There is no standardised bra sizing system, so it is impossible to determine your final bra cup size until after the swelling has settled. Usually, this is at the one month stage.

07

Can I bring in photos of the kinds of what I want to achieve?

This can be helpful to communicate your preferences. However, we cannot accurately predict the result of your procedure.
