How can I help you?

Rapid recovery technique

I perform the Rapid Recovery Technique (also referred to as the 24 hour recovery technique or Tebbett’s technique. (See reference 10 and 11 below).  It was developed by a very prominent plastic surgeon in Dallas. The technique outlines a fast recovery where patients do not need to stay overnight in hospital and can be back to normal activities in as little as 24 hours.

Polyurethane breast implants

State of the art polyurethane breast implants. Teardrop or Round and there is no additional charges for bigger implants.

We use polyurethane coated silicone implants from trusted German provider Polytech in all our breast augmentation procedures. This is because this type of implant carries less risk of capsular contracture following your surgery, and minimal chance of moving around the chest or dropping. They are proven to be safe and reduce the most common complication after breast augmentation which is capsular contractur (see reference 4, 6-9).

Breast augmentation offers you the full breasted look again

It should come as no surprise that to make your deflated bust look full again, implants can be the solution. The right shape and size implants will give you a natural look that restores fullness, and can take you up a cup size or two if you desire also. This means that the effects on your breasts of having children are improved, leaving you just with great boobs and cleavage once more. For women with sag, you might need to consider a breast augmentation with breast lift, as opposed to just implants alone.

CASE Studies

(Note: individual results vary. See our disclaimer*)

Lift and fullness

I saw this mother who had lost fullness in their upper breast area and this has caused sagginess to the breast. There are many techniques that can be used to correct this and give you a perky and full breast. By using a tear drop implant I was able to recreate the fullness. Using a dual plane technique I was able to get a good lift to the breast as well.*

Special techniques to avoid a lift

After breast feeding and post pregnancy many mothers are left with empty and saggy breasts. If the nipple sits below your breast fold than you really need a lift as well as an augmentation. This mother had seen another plastic surgeon and was told that she needs a lift. She was not happy with this as she did not want the associated scaring. She came to see me for a 2nd opinion.  After much discussion we decided to do a breast augmentation using a dual plane technique and a special anatomical implant to give her the best possible lift and fullness. The other difficulty was that she did not want to go to big. A small D is all that she was after.*

Many mothers after pregnancy just want to get back what they had before, or a little bit bigger

In my experience most women after pregnancy want to regain a fuller, natural and perky breast. I certainly have a lot of women that also want to go bigger. This lady was post pregnancy. She had always had small breasts. However after her pregnancy she noted that she had lost all the volume that she had before and instead of a small B cup she was now an A cup. She wanted to have a full D cup to be more in proportion to her body.*

The Rapid Recovery Technique, also known as the Tebbetts technique, was developed by a very prominent breast plastic surgeon in Dallas. The technique outlines a fast recovery where patients do not need to stay overnight in hospital and can be back to regular activities in as little as 24 hours. This method is practiced by Dr. Beldholm to help clients get back on their feet faster.

See what Dr. Beldholm has to say about the Rapid Recovery Technique.

Wondering what happens if a breast implant bursts, or leaks? It’s not full of liquid, as you might’ve thought – instead it’s a firm jelly like substance that holds its shape. If you’re scared about leaks with polyurethane breast implants, then watch this vid to put your mind at ease.

After pregnancy, the hormones that were swelling to your breasts to fill them with milk start to subside. Combined with breastfeeding this leads to a natural deflation of the breasts. Unfortunately, what this often means is winding up with “empty breasts”, loose, sagging skin, and stretch marks.

You probably knew that you could get round or teardrop shaped implants, and that they came in different cup sizes, too. But did you know there are different widths (to accommodate all different size width women), and that teardrop implants come in different shapes – oval, and round – too?

Here is Dr. Beldholm talking about different size and shape implants.

To get a natural result from breast implants, your surgeon will need to take into account your height and width, as well as the current size and shape of your breasts. Combined with how large you’d like your implants to be, we then tailor your implant size and shape to your body. Depending on your current body, the breast implant may be placed either over or under the muscle for the best look. For instance, if you are flat chested, a round implant under the muscle may give the best results, or if you are just looking to add fullness, then a teardrop may look better.

We only use polyurethane coated silicone implants from trusted German provider Polytech in all our breast augmentation procedures. This is because this type of implant carries less risk of capsular contracture following your surgery, and minimal chance of moving around the chest or dropping.

We examine the differences between the most common materials that breast implants are made out of:

Smooth Vs Textured Vs Polyurethane Breast Implants.

Due to recent health and safety updates by NSW government, conscious sedation is no longer offered for breast augmentation procedures anywhere in the state. This is in line with our previous stance in only offering general anaesthetic for the surgery.

Conscious sedation is when you are awake for the procedure but are sedated and have local anaesthetics to ease the pain, however this method leads to longer recovery times and can indeed still be painful. General anaesthetic is when you are completely asleep for the procedure and do not feel anything – and we can also used the Rapid Recovery Technique here.

Learn more about the key differences in this video from Dr. Beldholm.

With the type of implants that we use, polyurethane implants, there is no need to massage the breasts, in fact, we advise all clients not to massage their implants. This is only necessary for smooth implants, not polyurethane.
