First introduced 50 years ago, silicone gel breast implants have offered women around the world the chance to change the size and shape of their breasts. While there are now a variety of other breast surgery treatments also available, it is unusual for a medical device to remain in use for half a century and silicone gel implants are an exception to the rule.
Over the years, there have been huge advances in the development of silicone gel implants and the devices used today are very different to those that were used 50 years ago. Cosmetic surgeons have also learned a lot about the body and how it adapts to implants over the years and silicone gel implants are safer now than they've ever been.
The new generation of silicone gel implants takes into account all of the issues the procedure has had in the past, with the aim of ensuring patients receive the best possible outcome. There has also been recent research into the benefits of anatomically shaped silicone gel implants, which may give a more natural shape and feel than round, smooth implants, according to recent articles in ASJ and Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.

Figures from a recent IBIS study have shown that while surgical procedures remain on top, a growing number of Australians are showing their love for non-surgical cosmetic solutions.
With non-surgical procedures such as dermal fillers increasing by an impressive 25% last year, Australia has clearly opened its eyes to the benefits that can be enjoyed thanks to advances in non-invasive procedures.
The boost in popularity can be accredited to a number of things, including affordability, amount of downtime and market expansion. Non-surgical procedures are typically available at a much lower price than surgical offerings, making the particularly tempting for those on a low budget. The recent global financial crisis could also have had some impact on the market changes.
Downtime is another potential factor for people with busy careers. Non-surgical procedures tend to require very little recuperation time, allowing people to get back to work more quickly. Growth in the number of clinics and surgeries offering non-surgical procedures is also cited as a reason for the incredible increase in people choosing to have treatments last year.
However, customers are warned to be very careful when seeking out new clinics for cosmetic procedures and are reminded to only book appointments with certified clinics that have clinicians who have been properly trained and accredited.
For non-cosmetic procedures with a well-established and dedicated clinic, call 08 6555 3480 and speak to the experts at Dr Anh Nguyen's Perth practice. She offers excellent care as well as support and understanding of her client's needs.

If you’re considering breast reduction surgery or other types of cosmetic surgery, you should check the credentials of your surgeon and ask pertinent questions about the procedures being performed. This should form the basis of your initial consultation.
1. Qualifications - Check that your surgeon is qualified to perform cosmetic surgery procedures in Australia and has a number of years of experience in the specific type of surgery you desire.
2. Facilities - Cosmetic surgery procedures should be performed in accredited hospitals or other clinical settings, with access to medical equipment and supplies. Patients are not advised to go through with plastic surgery treatments performed in private residences.
3. Risks and complications - Your surgeon should provide full details of the potential risks involved with the type of surgery you’ve chosen, which should be explained during your consultation.
4. Medical evaluation - Surgeons should request a full medical history and other relevant background details from patients, to help them plan and manage your personal treatment.
5. After care - As well as a thorough consultation before the procedure, surgeons should also offer after care services to help patients through their recovery periods.

Breast enlargement is one of the most popular and common cosmetic surgery procedures in Australia, but there are still many questions you should ask your surgeon during your initial consultation to help you decide whether breast surgery is suited to you.
About The Procedure
Breast implant surgery requires the use of general anaesthetic and an overnight stay in hospital, and many patients need to know details of how long the recovery period lasts and what it involves. There will usually be some level of pain and discomfort following surgery, which your surgeon can inform you about, and the length of time before you are able to return to normal activities and exercise will depend on a number of factors, including your age, level of fitness and results from the procedure. You may also wish to enquire about any secondary procedures involved and about scarring and possible complications.
Evaluating Your Surgeon
As well as enquiring about the procedure itself, people preparing for breast augmentation surgery are also advised to ask questions about the surgeon performing their procedure, including how long they have been working in the field, their professional qualifications and the clinic’s rate of complications from this type of surgery. You should also find out which type of implants are used - if you have a preference for silicon vs polyurethane vs saline, round vs tear-drop vs other shapes, smooth vs textured, or above the muscle vs under the muscle vs Dual Plane.
