Breast Augmentation or Enlargement (‘Boob job’) is performed using breast implants to improve not only the size but to provide a natural, beautiful shape. Women seek breast augmentation for a variety of reasons but common to all is to feel feminine, sensual, and regain or improve confidence:
Dr Aggarwal is one of the only Sydney Plastic Surgeons who has completed further fellowship training in dedicated Breast Cosmetic and Reconstructive Surgery. He has also published a CME on Secondary Breast Augmentation in the Plastic and Reconstructive Journal, the premier plastic surgery journal for educating plastic surgeons worldwide.
At Mode we find Breast Augmentation patients some of our happiest patients, as results are reliable, readily reproducible and long lasting. At MODE, Dr Aggarwal will guide you through the planning of surgery, including selection of implants best suited to achieve your goals.
The procedure is always performed under general anaesthesia given by an accredited anaesthetist in a fully accredited and licensed facility (usually one of the North Shore’s premier private hospitals). The procedure takes one to two hours and most patients will be discharged the same day (some elect to stay overnight however).

Dr Aggarwal only use the highest quality implants from the leading manufacturers (Mentor or Motiva) who back their implants with lifetime guarantees. At Mode Plastic Surgery we will never employ cut price or cheap implants that have not had the most rigorous testing or safety profile
Modern breast augmentation uses current generation of silicone implants which have advanced significantly since being introduced decades ago. Unlike older generation implants, modern silicone implants are form stable/highly cohesive meaning that:
These are used in women who:
Anatomical or ‘tear drop’ implants are fuller at the bottom than the top resembling the shape of a native breast. These are useful in women who:
Anatomical implants are always textured though the degree of texturing varies between different implant manufacturers.
In Dr Aggarwal’s practice smooth implants are less commonly used as they have less stability of position and are more prone to implant malposition especially down and out when placed in a subpectoral/submuscular position.
However their benefits can include:
Textured devices are more commonly used because as the tissue heals around the implant it produces a Velcro effect with the implant surface adding to maintenance of implant position.
Benefits of textured implants include:
The degree of texturing of implants varies and can be described as:
Every surgery carries risks, and therefore one must consider if risks outweigh the benefits for your own personal situation. If they do then the surgery may be well worth it. Dr Aggarwal will discuss the pros and cons of surgery with you during your consultation.
The risk in the literature varies widely from 1/3,000,000 to 1/50,000.
However a recent study conducted in Australia (Wilkinson et al PRS 2017) documented the risk as:
At this stage this is currently being investigated and new research is ongoing. It is unlikely that the implants directly create the disease and there is good support for an infective theory – i.e. that minor contamination of the implant produces a ‘biofilm’ on the implant surface which then causes ongoing inflammation that reaches a critical point to cause the disease. A study by Adams et al PRS 2017, demonstrates that with defined steps to minimise bacterial contamination there were no documented cases of BIA-ALCL in even macrotextured implants. At Mode Plastic Surgery, Dr Aggarwal employs the 14 point plan to prevent contamination of breast implants.
This is a plan developed in consensus by plastic surgeons across the globe but especially from Australia and USA to reduce bacterial contamination of implants thought to cause not only BIA-ALCL but also capsular contracture
This plan, employed by Dr Aggarwal in all his implant surgeries includes:
