Is this right for me?

Only you can truly decide whether this is the right operation for you. This depends upon the way you perceive your own body and the impact that it has on your interaction with other people in your professional and personal life. It is vital that you make a choice which is right for you and that you have space and time to make this choice.

Our surgeons will help you to decide by discussing your wishes and objectives. Through a careful and supportive consultation the specialist will determine what is achievable in terms of size and shape and your general medical health. You will also have a full explanation of the advantages and the potential problems that can be associated with breast enlargement.

It is a well established surgical technique and patients require only a few days 'down-time' after a breast augmentation. If you are a healthy adult, the surgery is a low risk procedure.

What does this involve?

Breast Augmentation surgery involves enhancing the breast volume by positioning an implant between the breast tissue and the rib cage. This fills the breast, pushing it forwards and upwards, hence enhancing the breast size and cleavage. Your surgeon will examine you fully and advise you on the implant options.

The operation is performed under general anaesthetic and therefore will require an overnight stay in hospital. Breast Implants are introduced through a small surgical wound in the breast crease and the procedure takes approximately an hour. We do not use drains. You have a simple dressing over the resultant scar.
