You can enhance the size of your breasts using your own fat. Fat Grafting extracts, purifies and reinjects fat into your breasts for an increase of up to 1 cup size each time.
Dr Hunt’s objective with all breast reduction surgery – reduction mammoplasty – is to help you achieve smaller, firmer, better-shaped breasts that are more proportionate to the rest of your body.

Breast augmentation or breast reduction can correct the discrepancy and give you natural-looking, equally-sized and shaped breasts.

Cosmetic Breast Surgery Guide
The ultimate Cosmetic Breast Surgery Guide has been created by Dr Hunt and his team as a useful tool to help you plan and consider this procedure.
Throughout the guide, we will discuss the ins and outs of different types of Breast Surgery, from what makes an ideal candidate, to pre-surgery planning answers to the most frequently asked questions received from real-life patients.
What is Breast Surgery?
Would you like bigger, fuller breasts? Or maybe you need just the opposite- to get your breasts smaller to avoid back, neck, and shoulders pain and to find clothes, lingerie, and swimwear that actually fits. Whatever the case might be, Dr Hunt can help you achieve the results you desire. Dr Maryam also performs an inverted nipple surgery to help women with flat or shy nipples.
Maybe you require a breast implant revision surgery? To remove your implants or replace your implants? Struggling with tuberous breasts, breast asymmetry, or in need of breast reconstruction after breast cancer or trauma?
The most commonly performed breast procedure in the world is breast augmentation with implants. Patients can achieve bigger breasts that are more harmonious with the rest of their anatomy. However, breast reduction surgery is also in demand as patients seek relief from the problems associated with overly large breasts.
Many women prefer breast enlargement using their own fat in a fat transfer to breasts surgery. This procedure involves fat reduction from other areas of your body and fat injections via cannula into your breasts to sculpt and shape your breasts. The results can increase your breast by around 1 cup size per treatment.
Breast surgery is often performed for aesthetic purposes only, but in some cases, it can also be deemed as a medical necessity and may have a medicare rebate and health fund subsidy.
How is Breast Surgery Done?
Surgery is performed with the patient under general anaesthesia. The interventions can take from one to three hours, depending on the complexity of each case and the surgical approach.
If you are wondering where the incisions are placed when breast surgery is performed, you should know that in most cases, they are well-hidden in the natural folds of the skin or masked by the different shades of the skin.
The inframammary incision is the incision most commonly used for breast augmentation with implants and for other types of breast procedures. This incision is placed on the crease under the breasts, where the breasts meet the chest wall.
Benefits of Breast Surgery
Breast surgery can help you get the breasts you have always wanted and correct imperfections at the level of the breasts. There are multiple benefits associated with undergoing these procedures such as:
- Getting breasts that are proportionate to the rest of the body
- Correcting saggy breasts
- Correcting breasts asymmetries
- Correcting inverted nipples
- A boost of self-confidence

Dr Jeremy Hunt has performed hundreds of breast surgeries on women of all ages, from enlargements and reductions to lifts and reconstructions, but the end result is always the same – increased confidence and big smiles. Most women say it’s the best thing they’ve ever done for themselves.
Breast augmentation, most commonly referred to as a “boob job”, is by far Dr Hunt’s most popular procedure, and one in which he specialises. Other popular surgeries include breast reductions and breast lifts. Dr Hunt also helps women who have had all or part of one or both breasts removed, through breast reconstruction surgery.
Recovery after Breast Surgery
The recovery period after surgery is highly dependent on the complexity of the procedure. The area is usually swollen and bruised after the intervention.
It is best to avoid strenuous physical activities during the first two weeks after a breast surgery and returning to the gym is only possible after four to six weeks, in some cases even more. Here are more recommendations for the recovery period after breast surgery:
- Avoid smoking and drinking alcohol for at least two weeks
- Avoid steam rooms and saunas
- Sleep on your back
- Avoid lifting heavy objects from the floor
- Avoid ample arms movements
To avoid risks and complications that could occur during the recovery period make sure to follow Dr Hunt’s indications.

Breast Surgery FAQs
How long is Recovery after Breast Surgery?
Depending on the type of surgery you undergo, recovery time could be anything from a few days (Nipple Correction) to a few weeks (Breast Reduction), and can also depend on factors like your age and health. But the key to speeding up recovery and optimising results is to plan plenty of rest and quiet time. And always follow instructions regarding diet, exercise and any precautions.
I would advise anyone undergoing surgery to take two weeks off work, though you can normally resume light activities within 48 hours. Generally speaking, complete recovery can take up to six weeks, though the tenderness you’ll feel in the first few days quickly dies down. Any bruising will usually have settled after the first week.
As with all surgery, there are a number of things you can do to speed up your recovery time, like plenty of bed rest, limiting physical activity, eating well, drinking plenty of fluids and getting lots of sleep. Clear your schedule of work and social commitments for the advised length of time and follow your surgeon’s instructions to ensure you recover speedily and with no complications.
What are my Breast Surgery Options?
There are numerous surgery options to consider in order to achieve the desired results. Dr Hunt describes each procedure and the results you can expect from each.
Breast Augmentation with Implants
Breast augmentation surgery, commonly known as a boob job, is a procedure that uses implants to increase the size of the breasts. If you are unhappy with the size of your breasts, then this is the best breast surgery option for you. During your consultation with Dr Hunt he will discuss the different implant and sizing options to achieve the best shape and size for you.
Breast Enlargement using your Own Fat
Autologous Fat Grafting or Fat Transfer to Breasts can be used to increase the size of your breasts by relocating fat from other parts of your body. The fat grafting process is not as reliable as an implant but can get good results. Fat can also be combined with an implant to get an even better result – known as a Hybrid Augmentation or a Composite Breast Augmentation.
Many women who are considering breast reduction surgery suffer from back pain and discomfort due to their large breasts. A breast reduction helps to achieve smaller, firmer breasts that are in better proportion to your body.
As you get older breasts can lose their shape and firmness and begin to sag. This can be due to several factors such as weight loss or weight gain, pregnancy, breastfeeding and ageing. As well as lifting the breasts, a breast lift can also firm and reshape them. Breast lift surgery can also be combined with a breast augmentation if you’d like to increase the size of your breasts, as well as lifting them.
Breast Implant Revision
There may be many reasons for wanting your current breast implants to be revised or changed. You may be unhappy with their shape or size, had complications with your implants such as deflation or leaking or complications after surgery. Whatever the reason, Dr Hunt can help you achieve the result you were originally hoping for.
Most women have one breast that is slightly bigger than the other, however in some cases it can be more extreme and noticeable than others. A breast reduction or a breast augmentation can help correct the discrepancy between uneven breasts.
If you have had surgery to treat cancer or another disease, then you may be considering a breast reconstruction. Reconstructive surgery is complex and must be tailored to your specific needs. The type of surgery you had – lumpectomy, mastectomy, node removal – will have a big influence on the type of reconstructive procedure you require. Dr Hunt will thoroughly explain all the options to you, and you will find a welcoming and supportive environment.
