Breast augmentation is the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures
This treatment is typically chosen by women who have naturally small breasts or asymmetrical breasts, where one breast is different in size, volume or position from the other.
Breast augmentation is also popular among women who have experienced a reduction in breast size following pregnancy or weight loss.
In a breast enlargement procedure, implants are often used. We only use the very best quality silicone implants.
Our expert surgeons will make the incisions as discreet as possible under the breast. There are various incisions that can be made to put breast implants in place.
All stitches are placed below the skin and are naturally dissolved by the body over the course of a few weeks. Dissolvable stitches are perfectly safe and are regularly used by many surgeons across all healthcare settings. The use of dissolvable stitches means you do not need to make a follow-up appointment for removal.
Often our surgeons will opt to seal the wound with special tissue glue. This helps to limit the risk of superficial wound infection which can be caused by the normal bugs that everyone has on their skin. The glue will peel off over the course of one or two weeks after it is applied.
Pain generally subsides between 1 – 4 days after surgery and most patients are completely pain-free by 1 week. We recommend at least 1 week off work and very minimal movement in the first 2 weeks.
You must wear a post-surgical garment for 6 weeks to ensure the very best long-term scar results and reduce the risk of implant rotation. Strenuous upper body exercise should also be avoided for 6 weeks.
