Get new curves and new confidence
Breast enlargement surgery is not only Dr Jeremy Hunt’s most popular procedure, but also Australia’s. That’s because so many women want to feel more confident, more feminine. To be able to wear the clothes, underwear and swimwear that they love – and to feel sexy in it. To be more symmetrical. To be more curvy. To restore the size, shape, position and firmness of their breasts after pregnancy, weight loss or just getting older – or to achieve a shape they’ve never had. Whatever the reason you’re considering a breast augmentation, or “boob job”, Dr Hunt will take the time to talk you through all your options at your personal one-on-one consultation at his practices in Sydney and Wollongong.
Breast implant surgery
The incision site
You have three choices for your incision site: under the fold of your breast (the inframammary fold), around the nipple (periareolar), or through the armpit (transaxillary). Each of these sites has advantages and disadvantage in terms of how well your scar will be hidden, and most women have an immediate preference. It is 100% your choice where the incision is placed, so Dr Jeremy Hunt will explain the pros and cons of each site and answer any questions you have until you feel ready to make your decision.
The implant location
Your implants can be placed in front or behind the muscle. Placing implant in the subpectoral plane – behind the muscle – results in a more natural sloping of the breast, whereas implants in front of the muscle often have a more pronounced “roundness”. It all comes down to personal preference, and Dr Hunt will be there to guide and support your decision.
The implant type
There are many different types of breast implants available. Silicone, saline… Smooth, textured… Round, teardrop… High, moderate or low profile… Dr Jeremy Hunt will help you decide on the location of your incision and will talk you through all your options when it comes to choosing your breast implants. However, whichever you choose, you can feel secure knowing that Dr Jeremy Hunt invests in the best quality implants in the market. Unfortunately this is not the case with many surgeons, and goes some way to explaining the “bargain basement” prices you may have seen advertised.
During your consultation with Dr Hunt, you will try on bras with implants in order to get a really good sense of what your new breasts will look like on your body. It’s just another technique Dr Jeremy Hunt uses to help you achieve your dream results.

Considering Breast Augmentation?
If you would like to improve your self-confidence, feel more feminine and be confident to wear the clothing – and underwear – that you love, then yes, you’re an ideal candidate for breast augmentation surgery. It can help you change the size, shape, position, firmness or symmetry of your breasts, and help you achieve a curvier figure.
At your consultation with Dr Hunt, he will evaluate where you are starting from in regards to your breast size, shape, nipple position, skin elasticity and chest width. He’ll then take the time to understand what you are hoping your end result to be, before explaining the surgical technique and implant options available to you. If you decide to go ahead with your breast enlargement surgery, Dr Hunt will perform the procedure at your chosen hospital, under a general anesthetic administered by one of his hand-selected team of anesthetists. Dr Hunt will then insert your chosen implants according to the location and incision site you have discussed, taking every care possible to minimise and hide your scars. Dr Hunt will lift your breast tissue to make a pocket for your implant, either behind your breast tissue or underneath your chest wall muscle, before centering your implants behind your nipples. All sutures used are absorbable, so you won’t require any stitches to be removed, and no drains will be used. All in all, your surgery will take between one and two hours.
It’s entirely up to you – you can choose to stay overnight, or go home the day of your surgery. You’ll need someone to stay with you for the first 24 hours. When you leave hospital, you’ll be given prescriptions for antibiotics and pain medication to minimise any discomfort.
You’ll see Dr Hunt three to four days after surgery. At this time, he’ll check on your progress and teach you how to massage and exercise your breasts for optimal results.
Recovery times vary from woman to woman, however most of Dr Hunt’s patients require around one week off work.
You can resume light activities within 48 hours, and regular activities within a week. However, you must not undertake any strenuous activities for four weeks, and do any chest or weight exercises for six weeks, at which point you will be fully recovered. You’ll experience the most discomfort in the first 24 to 48 hours after your surgery. During this time your breasts will be swollen and tender, although this will settle quickly. Waterproof dressings are applied at the time of surgery – so you can shower immediately. You can remove the dressings over your incisions after three days. Most bruising will also fade within the first five or six days.
You will see the final result of your breast augmentation at around six weeks.
