What is breast enlargement surgery?

Breast enlargement surgery, breast augmentation or simply just a “boob job”. Whatever you call it, it’s very quickly becoming one of the most performed surgical procedures in the country and is perfect for women looking for a fuller, more even and symmetrical chest with a number of size options.

In our years of experience, we often find that the number one reason for breast enlargement surgery is down to a lack of body confidence. In most cases, the breasts are either naturally smaller than the patient would like or not equal to the frame of the patient, causing them to seem disproportionate or in extreme cases look quite uneven.

Although every surgery is different due to the individual requirements of the patient, all breast augmentations follow the same pattern. During surgery, a small incision will be made in the natural crease of the breast where the chosen implant will then be inserted before the incision is sealed with dissolvable stitches.

What should you expect with breast enlargement surgery?

Thanks to the trend of celebrities going “under the knife” and having breast enlargement surgery, this procedure is in the public eye on a daily basis. However, even after seeing it everywhere and coming to the decision that you want to have a boob job, doing all of your research is vital. Even after this you can still be sat with a number of questions on what to expect about the surgery, the recovery period and aftercare procedures. Some of the more commonly asked queries are answered below, but if you’re still stuck then we are happy to answer any questions that you have!

This varies on a patient to patient basis as every breast enlargement surgery is different, some women want a drastic change whereas others just want to see a small difference. Our pricing for breast implants starts at £3495.

In short, no, breast implants do not last forever. In fact, they’re likely to need to be replaced anywhere between 10 – 20 years after they have been implanted and it’s simply the natural wear and tear that occurs over time that cause them to need to be removed or replaced after this period.

There are two kinds of breast implants that are considered safe and these are saline and silicone implants. The type of implant to be used is entirely dependent on your ideal goals, but both saline and silicone based implants are safe for augmentation or reconstruction.

A breast enlargement surgery is usually considered as an outpatient procedure, meaning that it isn’t incredibly intensive and requires a long time in recovery. The actually surgery itself lasts between one to two hours and is carried out under general anaesthetic.

Over and under the muscle are the two types of procedure that can be performed when having breast implants. Over the muscle refers to the breast implant being positioned in front of the breast muscle and sits just below the natural breast tissue. This is one of the best options for if you already have a large amount of breast tissue or are restoring fullness to deflated breasts. Under the muscle refers to the breast implant being positioned behind the breast muscle and therefore is further beneath the skin. This is more suitable for women with smaller amounts of breast tissue and provides very natural looking results. Your surgeon will discuss the best method to use to achieve the results you are looking for.

Most women will still be able to breastfeed if they choose following a breast implant surgery as it doesn’t actually involve the milk ducts or the areas of the breast involved in milk production. There are some things during surgery such as the type of incision used and whether or not the implant is consider over or under the muscle, but this can be discussed with your surgeon prior to your surgery if you are planning on breastfeeding to ensure that you are still able to.

Some form of scarring is definitely to be expected from the surgery, however these will fade over time and become much less noticeable. The location of the scars will depend entirely on the method used by the surgeon and can either be hidden in the crease below the breast, around the areola/nipple or in the armpit. The surgeon will discuss this with you before your surgery is booked in to ensure you understand all the risks and possibilities.
