Dr Rastogi is famous for his very natural style of breast augmentation in Sydney. He is well known and experienced in sculpting beautifully shaped breasts.
“My desire is to create for my patients a beautifully shaped, natural-looking breast, sculptured on to her body in such a way as to balance and harmonise her proportions, and accentuate her feminine curves.”
Womens' breast sizes and shapes vary from person to person and have the propensity to change over time (with thanks to gravity, ageing, childbearing or weight fluctuations). Breast implants are a cosmetic breast surgeon's tool for beautifying a woman's contours.
Dr Rastogi performs his breast enhancements with breast implants in Sydney and many of his patients frequently travel to see him from all over the country and around the world.
A breast augmentation mammoplasty (sometimes abbreviated to BAM or BA) is the technical term for surgery that will augment and enhance the size and shape of breasts with breast implants. During the ‘boob job’ procedure, breast implants (breast prosthesis) are placed in the breasts, behind all of the natural breast tissue, (pre muscular) and often additionally behind the chest muscle as well (submuscular). They are inserted through a small skin incision, in order to make the breasts bigger, make the cleavage closer and create a more beautiful breast shape.
The surgery is performed in hospital as a simple day stay, under light general anaesthetic.
Dr Rastogi is known for his gentle hands, the absence of bruising and surgical precision. During his breast augmentation surgery, Dr Rastogi uses the ultra-short recovery technique. The technique involves minimal tissue trauma, minimal tissue stretching and the protection of pain-sensitive structures such as the lining of the ribs. The cosmetic surgery is performed very gently and precisely, with virtually no bleeding at all.
The result is minimal discomfort and an ultra-short recovery time. The recovery is also much easier as there is no bruising, no need for bandages and often no drains. Typically, patients are able to go out to lunch with friends the next day and return to work after the weekend. The technique is of great benefit for those who cannot take time off work and those who have been frightened by the prospect of postoperative pain.
If you’re wondering what breast implant size or cc volume to choose, it is best to discuss the options with your doctor. A good starting point is to find a surgeon whose work inspires you, book a consultation and show photo examples of breasts you like during the discussion.
Every woman is different, body shapes vary and therefore the notion of 'One Size Fits All' with breast implants does not apply. A good cosmetic surgeon will take into account the aesthetic that appeals to you and discusses the options available. In Dr Rastogi’s case, his reputation has been built on producing elegant, natural-looking breast implant results, which complement a woman’s figure and proportions.
It’s a common misconception that Breast Implants have a shelf life. There is no breast implant expiration date (such as 10 years) as was once thought. Now, Breast Implants can last a lifetime. Unless there is an issue with the patient’s breasts or general health, there is no need to have breast implants removed or replaced, provided the patient remains happy with their look and feel.
Patients may opt for a Revision Breast Augmentation, which is surgery to remove the existing implants and replace with new (often larger) implants. Read more about the new generation in breast implant technology here.
Breast Augmentation is a procedure whereby breast implants are placed under the breast tissue in order to enhance their shape and size. Patients of Dr Rastogi’s Sydney clinic recover quickly after having Breast implants due to his gentle Ultra Short Recovery Technique and achieve a beautiful, natural result.
A Breast Lift (Mastopexy) is a more involved procedure necessary for patients who have a significant amount of droop and who are therefore unsuitable for breast implants alone. Breast Lift surgery involves an incision around the nipple and another down the middle of the lower pole of the breast.
In certain circumstances, Dr Rastogi can perform an Autologous Fat Graft instead of a Breast Lift to fill the sagging breasts and enhance their beauty without leaving any incision lines.
For many women, particularly following childbirth and breastfeeding, their breasts change in both appearance, size and shape over time. For some, there is a significant loss of upper pole fullness, a noticeable reduction in volume and droop to the breast. A woman who started with perky, C-cup breasts pre-children may come to realise a droopy A-cup with lost upper pole volume following kids and breastfeeding, which may necessitate a Breast Lift.
Women have breast augmentation surgery (Breast implant surgery) for a variety of reasons as individual as the women themselves. However, the most common reason that patients come to see Sydney Breast Implants Surgeon, Dr Rastogi, is to make their breasts a more beautiful shape, larger, fuller and more balanced with their figures. Some women are born with small or misshapen breasts. Many others find they have lost volume with age or that their breasts have become empty with breastfeeding. Still, others simply feel that their breasts do not suit or balance their figure.
The breasts are the most important features giving shape, femininity and sensuality to a woman's figure and for many woman, its lack or loss is felt very strongly. Breast enlargement surgery today is a very simple and straight forward way of creating the breast size and shape that a woman may want in order to fulfil her desires for her figure.
Women can look at this surgery when they feel they are physically and emotionally ready. For many, it is an important life decision which will positively impact their appearance and confidence.
Some women proceed with a breast enlargement after having children, when they are often left with less breast volume and minor sag following pregnancy and breastfeeding.
Women should be aware of the recovery period following surgery. Additionally, patients need to be over the age of 18 years before surgery is performed. There is no restriction in terms of age with older women as long as they have no medical history which could impact their health.
You are never too old for a breast augmentation. Woman of all ages wish to look beautiful and feel confident in the clothes they wear. However, Breast enlargement surgery is an elective procedure and should only be performed for women with good health and low risk.
Many young women have breast augmentations however Sydney Breast Implants Surgeon, Dr Rastogi, also performs breast augmentation on women in their 40's, 50's and 60's. The average age overall is 35.
Being too young for a Breast Augmentation, on the other hand, is an issue. In order to make a decision to have breast implants, you need the maturity and life experience to know that Breast Augmentation is right for you. You really need to know who you are before you change who you are. In general, you should be 18 years old at a minimum.
Yes, you can breastfeed as normal after breast enlargement surgery. In a breast augmentation, breast implants whether they are pre muscular breast implants (on top of the muscle) or submuscular breast implants (under the muscle) are always placed behind all of the natural breast tissue. In this way the natural breast tissue necessary for breastfeeding is undisturbed and breastfeeding can occur as normal.
It should be noted that some women without breast implants can find it difficult to breastfeed, the same is true for those with implants and for the same reasons.
Breast Augmentation surgery in which breast implants are placed over the muscle is called pre muscular implants (aka sub-glandular implants).
Breast Augmentation surgery in which the breast implants are placed under the chest muscle is called submuscular breast implants (aka subpectoral breast implants).
In both cases, it should be noted that all of the natural breast tissue is situated above the implant so that proper breast augmentation and breast screening (see later) can be performed.
Conventionally premuscular breast implants are utilised by women with more saggy breasts because the muscle holds back the implant causing the overlying breast tissue to droop over the breast implants.
Submuscular implants are conventionally utilised by thinner women in order to hide the breast implants.
The main disadvantage of submuscular breast implants are that the breast can look harder and the cleavage is often pushed wider apart by the effect of the muscle. Active breasts which are excessive movement of the breast implants caused by the overlying muscle can also be an issue.
The main disadvantage of pre muscular breast implants are the greater chance of edge visibility and rippling.
Dr Anoop Rastogi's area of expertise is in the use of the more advanced polyurethane coated implants (aka P-ure implants or less elegantly furry Brazilians) see article the new breast implant revolution.
These implants can be placed in a dual pocket or dual plane.
The dual plane is a more sophisticated plane in which the upper half of the implant is placed under cover of the muscle to produce implant invisibility while the lower half of the implant lies clear of the muscle so that the breasts appear both softer and more natural.
Ordinary implants can be problematic in the plane however Polyurethane implants are ideally suited for the dual plane because they are much more stable in the tissues than ordinary implants so that a close natural cleavage can be produced and active breasts and rippling prevented.
Dr Rastogi will assess you carefully and discuss all this with you at your consultation.
Yes, breast implants do feel like real breasts, and, with the right doctor, will look natural too. Directly following surgery, implants may feel a bit firm and tight, but the body adjusts over time and the implants will soften.
Breast Implants have come a long way since the early days of manufacture. Implants used by any qualified, trusted surgeon operating in Australia today are safe. Dr Rastogi prefers the use of P-URE Polyurethane Coated silicone implants, their advantage being that they have the least risk of complications to patients. That said, Dr Rastogi continues to work with other implant types and brands, and is always happy to discuss the alternatives with patients.
P-URE implants, manufactured in Europe, are used extensively overseas and are also available here. Patients considering Breast Augmentation surgery can research the unique properties that give polyurethane coated implants their premium status. ‘Furry Brazilian implants’ as they are sometimes referred to, not only look great, they stick to place very well, and lessen the risk of implant sag, droop, rotation and breast hardening - the most common issues following Breast Enlargement surgery.
Breast augmentation surgery is a safe and straight forward procedure.
As with all surgical procedures, complications can occur from time to time. Dr Rastogi and his team will discuss these thoroughly during your consultation. Dr Rastogi's safe hands and his use of the more advanced polyurethane-coated implants greatly reduces the risks of breast augmentation surgery.
Yes as was mentioned above, for breastfeeding. All of the natural breast tissue lies above the breast implants, (for both pre muscular breast augmentations and submuscular breast implants).
Therefore lumps can still be felt easily with your fingers. Ultrasound, mammogram and HRI screening are all possible.
