Your Breast Enlargement Procedure in Swansea


Your breast enlargement in Swansea will change the shape and size of your bust. Though some methods rely on fat transplanted from other areas of the body or lifting the breast tissue, breast enlargement with an implant is the most common method to increase the size and perfect the shape of the breasts. A breast enlargement with implants effectively creates more fullness and increases the overall size.

While under local anaesthesia with sedation, or general anaesthesia, your surgeon will make strategic incisions, either in the armpit, around the areola (the dark area surrounding the nipple) or at the lower breast fold. An implant can then be inserted, either over the chest muscles (submammary implant), under the chest muscles (subpectoral implants), or a combination of both (“dual plane” procedure). The incisions necessary to insert breast implants are generally very small. Your BAAPS/BAPRAS surgeon will also take great care in the techniques they use to give you the best chance to have the smallest and finest scars possible.

The shape and type of implant your surgeon uses can change the look and feel of your breasts after healing. Depending on your needs, you can opt for a round (providing more overall volume) or teardrop implants (adds more volume on the lower breast and generally provides a more natural-looking).

Saline implants are a silicone shell filled with a saltwater solution. They are filled after the shell is implanted, so saline implants require a very small incision and leave a very small scar. However, they are least popular type of implant because they do not feel natural and are more prone to complications like capsule contracture, rippling, and rupture.

Silicone gel implants look and feel more natural than saline implants because they’re firmer. They are implanted at their full size so require a slightly larger incision.

Lastly, highly cohesive silicone gel implants provide the most natural result of all and are least likely to rupture.

You will not be able to drive or reach above your head for the first one or two weeks after your breast enlargement as the muscles in your chest and arms heal.

Recovery should last approximately 6 weeks after your procedure. It may take up to 6 months for the full aesthetic results of your breast enlargement to be visible as the implants settle into your breasts and take on a more natural shape.

Breast Enlargement in Swansea: Frequently Asked Questions

Do you have questions or concerns about your breast enlargement procedure in Swansea? Start with these frequently asked questions. If you don't find the answers here, meet with your Medbelle surgeon for an informative (and free) consultation.

  • Will people be able to tell I have implants?


    If you want a very natural-looking result, communicating this to your Medbelle expert surgeon is a great way to ensure you get these results. The final look and feel of a breast implant will depend greatly on the skill of the surgeon as well as the suitability of the implant for your body. This is why it’s so important to select a competent and experienced BAAPS/BAPRAS member surgeon who has the skill to get you the exact results you want.

    Generally, highly cohesive silicone gel has the most natural feel. Smaller, teardrop-shaped implants (also called "anatomical implants" because of their resemblance to the natural breast shape) are more likely to look natural than very large, round implants. It's important to keep in mind your personal experience may vary.

  • Will I still be able to breastfeed after a boob job?


    Just because you’d like to enhance the size and appearance of your breasts, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be able to breastfeed your child. Though very rare instances have been noted of women who can longer breastfeed after breast enlargement, the overwhelming majority of women will be able to breastfeed after the procedure – assuming they were able to do so before. If you are concerned, your surgeon may advise making incisions under the breast or in the armpit rather than around the areola, to prevent possible nerve or milk duct damage.

  • Will I need to have repeat surgeries after my breast enlargement?


    Your BAAPS/BAPRAS surgeon will do everything in their power regarding technique, tools, and aftercare to reduce the likelihood you will need any further breast surgery. Realistically, however, there is a possibility that further surgeries (called "revision surgery") are required. This could be unavoidable in the event of capsular contraction or a rupture.

    Furthermore, many people with breast implants simply choose to change the size, shape, or material of an implant after some time.

  • How long after pregnancy or breastfeeding can I have a breast enlargement?


    If you’ve just given birth, your surgeon will likely ask you to wait up to 6 months before attempting a breast enlargement. Similarly, you will have to stop breastfeeding for up to 6 months before your surgery.
