Breast Enlargement

Breast Enlargement

Breast augmentation is the most popular and frequently performed cosmetic surgery procedure in the UK.

What is a breast augmentation?

Often referred to as a breast enlargement, a breast augmentation increases or restores the size, shape and/or fullness of a woman’s breast. Many women undergo an enlargement together with a breast uplift to achieve the breast shape and size they desire. 

A breast augmentation is performed by inserting a breast implant behind a woman’s natural breast tissue. Breast implants are breast shaped sacks filled with silicone gel or saline. They are placed either above the main chest muscle or beneath to improve the appearance of the breasts.

What are the benefits of a breast augmentation?

Often, after major weight change, pregnancy and nursing or due to the natural process of ageing, the breasts reduce in size and gravity takes its toll. 

Breast augmentation surgery can provide both physical and psychological benefits to women. 

Women choosing breast augmentation and/or breast uplift seek firmer and fuller breasts that are well proportioned to their body and result in a more appealing figure. This new look may improve a woman’s confidence and have a great influence on her self-esteem.

Who might benefit from a breast augmentation?

Women often choose breast augmentation simply because they desire larger breasts. 

Frequently following weight reduction or pregnancy and breastfeeding women want to restore breast volume that has been lost and a breast enlargement will help achieve a larger firmer breast. 

Some women may have underdeveloped breasts and choose a breast augmentation to create a larger breast that is more in keeping with their body size and shape. 

If a woman has asymmetric breasts she may consider breast augmentation to even up the size of her breasts.

Women who’ve had a mastectomy or injury might choose breast implants and augmentation to reconstruct their breast.
