Breast Enlargement Procedure

Breast enlargement has given many women a sense of great satisfaction and well-being. After breast enlargement, women feel more feminine and more confident.

They enjoy an improved personal life and because their body is in proportion, they are able to wear clothes to show rather than hide their figure.

Breast enlargement can achieve many different goals. Every woman’s needs, desires and expectations are different and the decision should be made based on this.

To insure the best results, the size and shape of the implant will be chosen by the patient and surgeon prior to the procedure.

The procedure
Under local or general anaesthesia. Prior to the procedure, the surgeon will introduce through a microcannula a special liquid ‘LDI’(which increases the safety and makes the procedure virtually bloodless and painless). The surgeon will separate the breast tissue form the pectoral muscles in order to create a pocket for the implant to be positioned. The inside tissue and outside scars are then sutured and the dressing is applied.

In some cases drains may be necessary however and they will be removed the following day.

The day of the procedure
You will then change into the theatre gown and remove any cosmetics,jewellery,glasses or contact lenses before meeting the surgeon.

After the procedure
During the first 24-48 hours, you will experience some discomfort as your breasts will be swollen and tender, however, sedatives will be given as necessary. The surgeon will see you before you are discharged.

It is important you follow your surgeon’s advice, as follow up appointments are necessary to ensure the final result. Although every patient recovery time is different, you should be able to resume many of your regular activities within a week. You will need to wait 4 weeks before resuming any strenuous activity.

Most frequently asked questions

Is breast enlargement for me?
Breast enlargement is especially suitable for women who have either never developed significant breast tissue or who has lost breast tissue following breast feeding or weight loss. Patients feel less feminine because of small breasts and often wear clothes to disguise their figures. However, breast enlargement is for anybody who wishes to enhance their breasts.

Which implant should I choose?
There is choice of different types of implant.

a) Saline. Effective but may not be suitable for women with reduced breast tissue. This type of implant may be more prone to rupture and deflation and may not give the best aesthetic results. Women with thin skin tend to be more susceptible to rippling with this type of implant.

b) Hydrogel. Provides an alternative to those women whom are not comfortable with silicone. This implant is filled with a cocktail of water, salt and sugar (hydrogel). This type of implant is more expensive than silicone and has been temporarily taken off the market for investigation.

c) Silicone cohesive gel. The latest UK government research has reported that no evidence has been found that silicone implants pose any health threats. Copies of this report are available to the public. Simply call Independent Review Group (IRG) on 0207 972 8000. Silicone gel is usually the most popular implant due to its natural feel and shape and it is the least expensive. As this implant has been in the market for over 30 years, it has proved to be the safest and most natural off all the implants.

Can breast implants lift saggy breasts?
Yes, though it may be necessary to perform an uplift at the same time. Your surgeon will advise you on this.

Where will the scars be?
There are three possible incisions: under the armpit, around the nipple and on the crease of the breast. 98% of women choose the incision on the crease as the breast will then cover the small scar.

All incisions allow the implant to be placed either submuscular or subglandular; your surgeon will discuss the most suitable option in your case.

What are the risks?
As with any surgical procedure there can be inherent risks. However, when breast enlargement is performed by a qualified plastic surgeon, complications are rare and usually minor. The complications that may occur are a reaction to the anaesthesia, infection or haematoma. These are extremely rare. You should follow the advise of your surgeon to minimize these risks.

What is your surgeons’ experience?
All Continental Medical Services Ltd’s surgeons are fully registered with the General Medical Council and are NHS trained and approved. They operate in fully registered private hospitals. Their qualifications can be viewed on request at consultation.
