Breast Augmentation

What is Breast Augmentation?

A breast augmentation is a surgical procedure to enhance the shape and size of the breasts. Our expert breast augmentation surgeons insert breast implants to increase the size of the breasts and achieve a fuller shape.

Breast enlargements are one of the most popular procedures carried out with the highest patient satisfaction rate in the cosmetic surgery industry and can lead to increased confidence, improved self-esteem, and a better quality of life.

Every patient’s reason for getting breast implants is completely unique, so here at Want Surgery we provide a specialist service that is tailored to your needs without the added price tag.

Why choose Breast Enlargement?

Patients who consider breast enlargement surgery are typically seeking a larger cup size for one of the following reasons:

  • Their breasts didn’t fully develop to their desired size during puberty
  • To increase self-esteem and confidence
  • To enhance what they already have and achieve a fuller size
  • Following pregnancy, due to breasts losing volume, shape and fullness
  • Following weight loss due to breasts losing volume, shape and fullness
  • They are suffering from asymmetry or tubular breasts and want to improve the appearance and symmetry of their breasts

Breast enlargement procedures are performed under general anaesthetic and take between 30 minutes -1 hour in theatre and is a 1 night stay in our hospital.

Patients should expect bruising and swelling to the breasts and surrounding areas and may experience tightness, discomfort and sensitivity following their procedure. Pain should subside after 7-14 days and pain relief will be prescribed to ease any discomfort.

Breast Implant Options

Every patient’s breast enlargement journey is different, our specialist breast augmentation surgeons will recommend the best implant size and placement for you based on your physical requirements, body shape, existing breast tissue and your desired result.

  • Size – Breast implants are measured in cubic centimetres (or CC’s for short), not in cup sizes, for example: 350cc or 400cc.
  • Shape – There are two shapes of implants: round or anatomical (also known as teardrop).
  • Placement – The placement of breast implants refers to whether the implant is placed under the muscle, over the muscle or partially between both, described as submuscular, subglandular and subfascial.
  • Profile/Projection – The profile of breast implants refers to how much it projects forward when you are standing and is described as low, moderate, high or ultra high profile.

A breast enlargement incision is placed central in the patient’s breast crease – the mammary fold, usually measuring 3-5cm in length. The size and placement of the incision will be discussed on an individual case by case basis with the surgeon. The breast augmentation scars will initially be a red horizontal thin line in the breast crease and after healing, it will fade to a thin white line. Scarring can typically take up to a year to fully fade.

You will be required to wear a post surgery bra for 6-8 weeks post surgery which will aid healing, reduce swelling and help your breasts settle post surgery.
