Small implants have always been popular amongst some circles. Models, TV personalities and increasingly Instagram models have been a fan of the “has she or hasn’t she look”, however Dr Tavakoli explains that the trend towards a small implant is becoming more and more mainstream.

Popular amongst models, actresses and those in the public eye, the “mini boob job” is the fastest growing trend in breast augmentation surgery today.
What is a mini boob job?
Dr Kourosh Tavakoli is Australia’s leading breast implant surgeon, having performed over 6000 breast augmentation procedures. In Dr Tavakoli’s expert hands, a mini boob job does not just mean a small implant or breast size, rather, the crucial element is selecting an implant that fits the patient’s chest and breast perfectly without any element of enhancement.

How is this achieved?
During your consultation with Dr Tavakoli, precise measurements of your breasts will be taken to indicate a range of possible implant choices. the real implant sizing and selection however, takes place in the operating room during your procedure with the use of intra-operative sizers.
Dr Tavakoli exclusively uses unlimited intra-operative implant sizers to determine the best possible implant for the patient’s breast and chest footprint. This method of sizing takes into account rib wall curvature and the skin’s ability to expand ensuring the most natural looking implant is chosen.
In most patients, the incision is located in the Inframammary breast crease (IMF) and over time usually becomes imperceptible.
In some patients with chest wall deformity or low tissue coverage, fat grafting may also be used to provide implant coverage, disguise irregularities, or to add volume to a part of the breast.
