Breast Augmentation surgery can improve fullness and shape to create a beautiful, natural-looking breast. You may have lost shape or volume of your breasts due to the process of ageing, breastfeeding or significant weight loss or you may have breasts that did not develop during puberty. This is why breast augmentation surgery has become the most common cosmetic surgery procedure that Dr Scott Turner performs.
You may be a candidate for breast implant surgery if you answer “yes” to any of the following questions:
There are certain factors that should also be considered when determining if you are a good candidate for breast augmentation surgery. Generally speaking, candidates should:
Our recommendation after a facelift is to relax for two weeks to ensure optimum healing. Most people can resume normal routines after this time. Recovery is generally rapid; with dressings ‘debulked’ the next day after surgery and any drains are removed.
Expect to wear an elastic support for two weeks or so, to minimise swelling and help maximise your new neck contour. Skin stitches are removed between five to seven days after surgery. At two weeks, swelling should have subsided considerably. Remember, it will be several months before the final result can be fully appreciated.
The sensation of numbness and tightness subsides with healing. Any discomfort can usually be controlled with medication.
Dr Turner will discuss your recovery in detail at your second consultation. After assessment of any individual health risks, such as high blood pressure and personal scarring tendencies, you will be given a tailored recovery treatment plan to follow after surgery.
Like other surgical procedures, face surgery also has its risks. When recovering at home, it is important to watch out for the following signs and symptoms associated with your procedure:
During your consultation, Dr Turner will discuss your goals, and provide an in-depth explanation of your desired surgery and what that means for you. He can also discuss different surgical techniques, benefits, and risks of procedures available.
Most importantly, however, this is the time for you to have all of your questions answered and to be completely listened to and understood by your surgeon. We ask that you please come prepared with any questions you may have for Dr Turner, and look forward to discussing your individualised plan.
Ensure you have done your research, both on your desired surgery, as well as your surgeon.

Breast surgery will not increase your risk of getting breast cancer. In addition, having breast implants will not hinder the detection of breast tumors.
This will depend on the degree of skin sagging. If you have extreme sagging of the skin, another procedure may be needed to lift your breasts so that they appear younger and well-defined. Breast implants are recommended for patients with a mild degree of skin sagging. During your consultation with a top surgeon, your breast condition will be first assessed if you are a good candidate for breast implants.
It is recommended to postpone pregnancy for at least 6 months after your surgery. This allows your breasts to adjust to its new shape and size.
Your Surgery is fully customised and Dr Turner’s team will give you a package price for your surgery that will depend on the exact type of procedure you require, the hospital you choose and the length of your surgery & stay. It will include aftercare, follow-up and extra post-op services that you need.
Some patients choose different implants, want additional fat grafting or more complex surgeries like a breast lift or correction. After your initial consultation, you will be given a detailed quote. This will include the Surgeon’s fee, Anaesthetist fee, Surgical Assistant fee and the hospital fees.
Due to the natural ageing process and the effects of gravity. Facial ageing will unfortunately continue. With that being said, your face will always look younger than it did if you had never had a facelift done. Overall, this procedure tends to reset the clock, leading to a 10+ year advantage over individuals of the same age. If, over time, you would like an additional facelift, it is generally not as comprehensive as the initial surgery.
