The decision to have breast surgery is a personal and at times difficult decision. Many factors come into consideration when deciding on whether to go ahead with one of the breast surgery options below. Dr Milovic is available for consultation to discuss any of these procedures, such as breast implants or breast reduction, at his Melbourne or Canberra clinics.
Dr Milovic’s approach to breast surgery
With Dr Milovic’s extensive experience in breast surgery procedures, he also specialises in correcting complex breast surgery cases, including tuberous breasts, breast asymmetry, nipple reconstruction, breast reconstruction after mastectomy (with implants or flap surgery), and breast lift reduction procedures. Dr Milovic uses minimal scarring techniques, in appropriate cases, as well as evidence-based plastic and cosmetic surgery advances arising from Europe, South America, and the USA.
As a boutique practice, in Melbourne and Canberra, Dr Milovic does not focus on having the highest volume of patients. Rather, Dr Milovic approaches each patient as an individual, with a tailored surgical plan, detailed consultation process, and commitment to comprehensive aftercare for as long as is needed for optimal recovery and follow up.
Breast augmentation is a personal decision and women choose to undergo breast implant placement for many different reasons.
Breast Lift (Mastopexy)
As women age, or after breastfeeding or weight loss, they can experience what is termed ‘sagging or droopy breasts’—which is medically referred to as ptosis. A breast lift can help restore a more youthful breast shape and elevation.
Breast reconstruction is surgery performed to help restore a naturally shaped breast at the same time as or after a mastectomy.
Women with breasts that are too large in relation to the size of their bodies can endure physical as well as emotional pain. A breast reduction can create lighter, more proportionate breasts.
Nipple correction and/or reconstruction surgery can provide a solution for women with inverted nipples or for women who have lost a nipple following a mastectomy.
Our bodies are not symmetrical and therefore it is quite normal for a woman to have two slightly different sized or shaped breasts. Using surgical techniques Dr Milovic can treat breast asymmetry for an improved appearance.
Revisional breast surgery is always more surgically challenging than primary breast surgery. This is largely due to the presence of scar tissue, tissue stretching, and anatomical changes caused by the previous breast implants (in the case of augmentation).
