Breast Enlargement Harley Street, London from £7,000
Breast enlargement is also known as “breast augmentation” is a surgical procedure designed to enhance the size and shape of the breasts. According to the British Association of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons, breast enlargement is the single most popular plastic surgery procedure in the UK today.
As with every procedure, it is important to select the correct surgeon with specific skills in breast augmentation and someone who routinely carries out the procedure. Mr. Sivarajan is one of the most prolific breast enlargement specialists in the UK carrying out these procedures on a weekly basis, delivering a very high rate of patient satisfaction and a minimal level of complication.
For many women undertaking breast augmentation surgery, their new appearance is the source of greatly improved self-esteem which can be life-changing. With the improving affordability of these procedures and access to financial services to help fund patient surgery, breast augmentation is more accessible to more women than ever before.
Breast augmentation surgery is a good option for many women for a variety of reasons. Some women feel that their breasts have never fully developed, others as they age or after raising children feel their breasts are sagging, or uneven. Others simply want to increase the size of their breasts to improve how they look in general.
Breast augmentation surgery also lends itself very well to the advanced day-case model as the surgical incisions are relatively small, any post-op bruising or swelling will be concealed by clothing, general movement after surgery is not significantly restricted and post-op pain is normally easy to control and short-lived. This results in a procedure that has one of the shortest recovery periods with most women able to resume the majority of their normal activities within a few days.
Breast augmentation at Elanic is now almost always performed on a day case patient basis under local anaesthetic with IV sedation. The procedure is performed by placing an implant either directly behind the breast or behind the chest muscle. In some cases, where a volume increase may not on its own fully improve the appearance of the breasts then a common option is to have a breast uplift (mastopexy) performed at the same time. This is known as a Breast Augment Mastopexy procedure, which lifts the breast to a higher position whilst adding the required volume.
The implants used by Elanic are manufactured by Mentor and have undergone rigorous quality checking in the USA by the FDA and these are backed by Mentor’s Patientcare Promise Lifetime Limited Warranty scheme.
When undertaking breast augmentation surgery, there are several issues to consider, including:
- Type of incision
- Breast implant type
- Placement of implant
- Implant Size
It should also be noted that Elanic surgeons will not perform this surgery on patients under 18 years of age.
At your consultation, your consultant will discuss in detail which options would best suit your needs.
