Breast Enlargement in London with Medbelle

breast-implant.jpg

Adults of all ages have breast enlargement for a wide variety of reasons: weight loss, natural asymmetry, a lack of volume, and many others. In fact, this is one of the most popular types of surgery in the UK. Thousands of people have their breasts surgically enlarged with implants every year. But how is breast enlargement surgery performed?

This type of surgery involves a small incision where the breast meets the torso, around the nipple, or at the armpit. An implant is placed in the breast through this incision into a pocket created under the existing breast tissue, under the chest muscle, or a combination of the two. Placement of the implant changes the volume and shape of the breasts.

There are three main types of implants, and two shapes.

Saline implants are a silicone shell filled with a saltwater solution. They are not popular any longer as they feel the least realistic and have a higher rate of complications like rupture or capsular contracture than silicone-filled implants.

Silicone gel implants feel more natural than saline implants.

Highly-cohesive silicone gel implants provide the most natural feel and cannot leak silicone if ruptured because of the firmness of the gel.

As for shape, implants can be round to provide volume equally to the entire breast, or teardrop/anatomically shaped to add volume to the bottom of the breast and provide a very natural-looking result.

The incision used, the placement technique, as well as the type of the implant used all produce a different final result. This means there are hundreds of variations within breast enlargement surgery so your Medbelle surgeon can tailor your procedure to your individual needs and provide you with amazing results.

London Breast Enlargement: Frequently Asked Questions

As with any surgery, it's natural to have questions about your breast enlargement in London. That's why we've gathered the most frequently asked questions regarding the procedure, aftercare, and general information associated with breast enlargement surgery.

  • Will I be able to breastfeed after my breast enlargement?

    expand_more

    A vast majority of patients are able to breastfeed after a breast enlargement given they were able to breastfeed before the surgery.
    However, since breast enlargement surgery is performed on the breasts where the milk ducts are located, there is a chance your ability to breastfeed could be impacted.
    If you expect to have children after your breast enlargement, discuss this with your surgeon during your consultation. They can use certain implant locations and insertion techniques that have a lower risk of affecting breastfeeding than others.

  • What can I expect regarding aftercare and healing?

    expand_more

    Please know each surgeon has different requirements and guidance regarding aftercare and healing. These should be taken as broad suggestions.

    Generally, you should prepare for the following after surgery:

    • You will need to be away from work for at least 4 days if your work does not require any physical exertion
    • You will need to be away from work for at least 2 weeks if your work requires physical labour
    • You need someone to take you from the hospital to your home after surgery
    • You need someone to stay with you for at least 24 hours after surgery
    • Make sure you have many pillows on your bed as you will need to sleep slightly upright at a 45° angle for the first night or two to reduce swelling

    The nature of breast enlargement surgery means your arms, chest, and shoulders will be very sensitive after surgery. Any discomfort can be managed with pain medication, however, you may have difficulties moving your torso and arms for at least a week. During this time, you must avoid reaching above your head, lifting heavy objects, or driving in order to avoid disrupting your surgical wounds.

  • Will I need a referral from my GP in order to have breast enlargement surgery?

    expand_more

    No, you do not need a GP referral to have breast enlargement surgery. As breast enlargement surgery is an elective (not for medical purposes) surgery, you do not need a referral to get a consultation or have the surgery.

    However, after your consultation, your surgeon may request permission to contact your GP for your medical history. Having access to your medical history allows your surgeon to make sure you are physically fit for surgery and can alert them of any existing medical conditions that may put you at higher risk for complications.

  • Will changes in my weight change the look of my breasts after breast enlargement surgery?

    expand_more

    Small fluctuations in your weight up or down will not greatly impact the look of your breasts after breast enlargement surgery.

    If you lose or gain a larger amount of weight however, the look of your breasts will likely change.

    Overall, major weight loss is more visible than weight gain as the outlines of the implants may be less concealed by existing breast tissue and body fat.

    To avoid any drastic changes, our surgeons generally recommend for you to be at a healthy, stable weight before your surgery.

  • What will my breasts feel like after breast enlargement surgery?

    expand_more

    Modern silicone gel implants are designed to provide your breasts with an exceptionally natural look and feel. Silicone gel implants will provide a feel much closer to natural breast tissue than saline implants.

    If you are concerned about the possibility of your breasts feeling "fake" because of implants, tell your surgeon about your thoughts. They will likely suggest you choose a highly-cohesive silicone gel implant. Also called "gummy bear" implants, highly-cohesive silicone gel implants closely mimic the feel of natural breast tissue.
