Breast Enhancement

Breast enhancement surgery is the most common of all cosmetic procedures, allowing you to enhance and change the shape of your breasts. There is now a number of different techniques that can be used to enhance breasts, some less evasive than others. The least amount of scarring the better the result. Breast enhancements do not last forever and you will need further surgery every 10 years or so.

The most well known surgical procedure uses implants to enhance the size and shape of a woman’s breast. The two main types being silicon or saline implants. The implants come in various sizes so that a choice can be made, however, most surgeons prefer to put in a size that suits the person’s frame. Implants are made from different materials and as time as gone by the safety aspect has become more important. Silicone implants were thought to be unsafe, however, third generation implants are now much safer and are used in most breast enhancement’s in the UK. They are made with a tough outer shell which is either smooth or textured and they are filled with a cohesive gel which helps prevent leakage should a rupture occur.

Breast enlargement surgery can be done in a number of ways, an incision can be made under the breast fold, in the armpit or around the nipple. The choice needs to be discussed with your surgeon, each type of incision can have advantages and disadvantages. The implant is placed in the pocket made by the surgeon and can be placed over or under the pectoral muscle. Each method gives a slightly different shape but your surgeon will advise you of the best position after taking in to account the size of breast, the skin quality and your breast shape.

Breast surgery of this type involves having a general anaesthetic and an overnight stay in hospital. Breasts will be swollen and bruised immediately after surgery and some discomfort will be felt in the scar area. A good support bra or sports bra needs to be worn after surgery and you will need to avoid underwired bras for at least six weeks after surgery. Strenuous exercise and lifting should be avoided for 6 to eight weeks following surgery.


Side effects that can arise from breast enhancement surgery are sickness as a result of a general anaesthetic. The breasts may be sore, swollen and hard but these side effects will normally disappear after a few weeks. More serious complications and ones that can occur in any operation is deep vein thrombosis, excessive bleeding or blood clot.

Specific complications are rare but can include, unevenness in size and shape, creasing, kinking of the skin over the breast tissue. Infection in the breast that may result in the implant having to be removed. Excessive scar tissue, this can be corrected with further surgery. Changes in sensitivity including numbness around the nipple area. Fluid build up in the breasts. Despite all this many people have no problems and the added confidence that a breast enlargement gives them is well worth the risk.

Cost of breast enhancement surgery

The cost of breast enhancement surgery is  between £3,500 to £5,000 depending on the surgeon or hospital.
