What is Breast Enlargement?

Breast enlargement surgery, or Boob Job also known as breast augmentation is one of the most popular procedures in the UK. Many women decide to undergo breast enlargement surgery to increase the volume of their breasts due to their naturally small size or following extreme weight loss, pregnancy or breastfeeding.

How is Breast Enlargement Performed?

The procedure involves placing silicone implants under the breast tissue by making a small incision either around the nipple or under the breasts. The incision depends on the patients’ size of breasts, positioning of breasts, size of implants and shape of implants. The implants are placed either in front or behind the chest muscles depending on the size of the patient’s chest.

Round and Anatomical Breast Implants

There are two types of silicone implants used in breast enlargement surgery, namely round and anatomical. Round implants are very popular due to their fuller and proportioned shape. Alternatively, anatomical implants are shaped like a teardrop to mimic the natural look and feel of a real breast.

Both round and anatomical implants come in smooth and textured versions. Textured implants are designed to stay securely in their position, while smooth implants are less likely to ripple. During the initial consultation, your surgeon will take all this into consideration as well as your body type and desired results to choose the right breast shape and size for you.

Our surgeons use both MENTOR® and MOTIVA®, the leading breast implants approved by the FDA
