Breast plastic surgery in Melbourne
If you want fuller breasts, or breasts more suited to your body shape, the team at Camberwell Plastic Surgery can help you.
Ideal for patients with small or underdeveloped breasts. Can also be useful in correcting breast asymmetry. Can also restore a breast shape, where volume loss or decent has occurred following breastfeeding or pregnancy.
Also known as a mastopexy, this procedure both lifts the nipple-areola complex back to its original, youthful position and reshapes the breast to redistribute the breast tissue to occupy emptying of the upper pole. This commonly occurs following weight loss or following breastfeeding.
Breast reduction is often performed to make your breasts proportional to your body. If you suffer from overly-large, saggy breasts you’ll know how it hard it can be to do normal activities like running, playing sports or exercising. Over-large breasts can cause back pain, neck pain, headaches, and postural problems. In addition, rashes and infections may form on the underside of the breast. A breast reduction can help alleviate these symptoms as well as reshape and enhance the shape of your breasts and nipples.
Following total mastectomy or lumpectomies for cancer, procedures can be performed to restore the breast shape. Reconstructions may use the patients own tissue (autologous) or be implant-based (alloplastic) reconstructions. Sometimes a combination of the two is used. Each reconstruction is uniquely tailored to the patient’s body and desires, as well as sensitive to their cancer treatment regimes.
Nipple reconstructions and areolar tattooing are also performed. Fat grafting is a useful tool in addressing volume loss following radiotherapy or lumpectomy.
Male Breast Surgery (Gynaecomastia)
Excessive male chest tissue is often a combination of fibrous breast tissue and fat, colloquially known as ‘man boobs’. Sometimes, this can be addressed solely with liposuction, however, often when this is combined with small open resection of the fibrous component, the best results are achieved.
Breast surgery under Medicare
In some cases, surgeries like breast reduction and breast reconstruction can be covered by Medicare. An example of this is breast reduction when it can help to alleviate pain, headaches and posture problems.
Typically, you would need to discuss this with your doctor and then Medicare will inform you of the necessary paperwork you would have to fill out for the surgery to be covered. Depending on your situation, Medicare and private health funds may offer some rebate for plastic surgery procedures deemed medically necessary.
