Breast Surgery in Melbourne

Mr Andrew Ives believes breast surgery is about what you want to achieve. There’s no pressure to conform to a one-size-fits-all solution; each procedure is tailored to give the result you desire.

Having a breast shape and size that you feel comfortable with can play a significant role in your confidence. The impacts can be both physical and emotional: you may dislike the way you look, experience physical discomfort, struggle to find clothes that fit, or feel less feminine and sensual. For women who have had one or both breasts removed, there may also be a feeling of loss.

Whether you are seeking breast surgery in Melbourne for reconstructive purposes after a mastectomy, to reduce discomfort related to size, or to enhance your existing shape, Mr Ives and his team will ensure you are treated in a sensitive and professional manner. They understand that breast surgery is a highly personal procedure and their goal is to make you feel as comfortable as possible during consultations, surgery and post-surgical appointments.


Consultations

Consultations are held in a relaxed and professional atmosphere. Because of the personal nature of breast surgery, some patients feel concerned about having their breasts examined. Although you may feel this way, an examination is necessary to assess the size, shape and structure of your breasts so that Mr Ives can determine the most suitable solution for your situation. Mr Ives has extensive experience dealing with breast surgery, and your examinations will always be conducted respectfully.

Types of Breast Surgery

Breast enlargement
Breast lift
Breast reduction

Breast Enlargement

What it does:

Enhances breast volume and shape by inserting an implant over or under the pectoral muscle. The end result can be tailored to each patient by using different implant materials and shapes.

Why patients consider it: 

Dissatisfaction with breast size; feeling ‘out of proportion’; loss of breast volume after pregnancy, breastfeeding or weight loss.

Choosing a size:

Good breast surgery is designed to give you the most natural appearance, with breasts that suit the size of your body. Breast enlargement procedures that give patients breasts disproportionately large for their body not only don’t look natural, but can also lead to complications and extensive surgery later in life, leaving heavy scarring. The ultimate size of the enlarged breast is determined by the patient’s chest width. This is measured during consultation, and a sizing kit is then used to indicate final size.

Complementary procedures: :

Breast enlargement will not correct significant drooping or sagging breasts. In this case, a breast lift may be recommended instead of, or as well as breast enlargement,

Risks and complications:

All surgery involves a degree of risk and possible complications. Please take the time to review the risks and complications associated with breast enlargement.

Breast lift

What it does:

Creates firmer, higher breasts by removing excess skin and reshaping breast tissue. A breast lift will put your breasts ‘back where they started’.

Why patients consider it: 

Unhappiness with breast shape and profile due to ageing, pregnancy, breastfeeding or weight loss.

Complementary procedures: :

A breast lift can also be combined with a breast enlargement when fuller volume is desired.

Risks and complications:

All surgery involves a degree of risk and possible complications. Please take the time to review the risks and complications associated with a breast lift.

Why patients consider it:

Risks and complications:
