    Breast Enhancements: What You Need To Know

    Breast enhancements explained, costs, procedure best plastic surgeon approach from a leading Harley Street plastic surgeon.

    Breast enhancements have become increasingly popular in recent years, with more and more women in the UK opting for surgery to enhance the size and shape of their breasts. As a plastic surgeon, I have performed countless breast enhancement surgeries and have seen firsthand the impact it can have on a woman’s confidence and self-esteem.

    If you’re considering breast enhancement surgery, there are a few things to consider, which I’ve taken the time to share with you in this blog

    The Types of Breast Enhancements

    There are two main types of breast enhancements: breast augmentation for the volume and breast uplift/reduction for the ptosis/size of the breast. Breast augmentation involves increasing the size of the breasts, typically through the use of implants. Breast uplift or reduction on the other hand, is designed to lift and reshape the breasts, but does not involve increasing the size. Recuction surgery reduces the size and lifts the breasts as well.

    With our experience, we are also able to perform a combination of these procedures simultaneously, for patients that present with a combination of issues

    2 Breast Augmentation; What It Is

    Breast augmentation is the most popular type of breast enhancement surgery. It involves inserting implants behind the breast tissue or under the chest muscle to increase the size and improve the shape of the breasts. There are a variety of implant types and shapes to choose from, depending on your desired outcome and body type. During your consultation, we will discuss the best option for you.

    1.2 Breast Uplifts /Reductions Explained

    Breast uplift?reduction surgery is designed to lift and reshape and maybe decrease the size of the the breasts. Only combination surgery (eg breast augmentation and uplift or reduction surgery ) can increase the size and also improve the shape. It is ideal for women who have sagging breasts due to pregnancy, weight loss, or ageing. The procedure involves removing excess skin and most likely breast tissue, and reshaping the breast tissue to create a more youthful and perky appearance. The scars are always around the areola and then vertically down to the crease and possibly in the crease under the breast.

    Your Consultation

    If you’re considering breast enhancement surgery, the first step is to schedule a consultation with a plastic surgeon. During the consultation, for our patients we will discuss their goals, and medical history, and examine your breasts to determine the best course of action. We will also discuss the risks and benefits of the procedure, as well as the recovery process. Ensuring you are happy, comfortable and taken care of is our utmost priority and one we pride ourselves on at my clinic.

    The Preparation Procedure

    Before your surgery, there are a few things you can do to prepare. It’s important to avoid smoking and limit alcohol consumption in the weeks leading up to your surgery, as this can interfere with the healing process. You should also arrange for someone to drive you home after your surgery and help you out for the first few days of your recovery. For our patients , we will go in-depth on the preparation.

    Your Recovery Considered

    The recovery process for breast enhancement surgery varies depending on the type of procedure you undergo. For all operations you can expect to feel sore and have some swelling for a few days after the surgery. You will need to wear a support bra for several weeks to help with the healing process. The pain level is variable, usually easily tolerated and we do not use drains.You will also need to avoid heavy lifting and strenuous activity?exercise for several weeks.

    Your Results & Aftercare

    The results of breast enhancement surgery can be truly transformative. Not only will your breasts look fuller and more shapely, but you may also experience a boost in confidence and self-esteem. It’s important to have realistic expectations for the results of your surgery, as they will not be immediate and will take some time to fully develop.

    The Full Cost

    The cost of breast enhancement surgery can vary depending on a variety of factors, including the type of procedure, the surgeon’s fees, and the location of the surgery. It’s important to discuss the cost of the surgery with your surgeon during the consultation process, as well as any financing options that may be available. We are upfront about our fees, which are available on our website.

    A Final Thought…

    Breast enhancement surgery can be a life-changing experience for many women. It’s important to choose a qualified plastic surgeon who can help you achieve your desired outcome while minimizing the risks associated with the procedure. If you’re considering breast enhancement surgery, schedule a consultation with a plastic surgeon to discuss your options and develop a plan that works for you. With proper preparation and care, breast enhancement surgery can provide beautiful and long-lasting results.
