Information about our ​Breast Implants and Augmentation
 
What is breast augmentation surgery?
Breast augmentation surgery is an operation to enlarge the breasts, usually using an implant filled with silicone or with physiological saline (a solution containing salt at the same concentration as in the body).Sometimes, the breasts can be enlarged with fat from another part of the body. This is called lipofilling. Lipofilling is not explained in this leaflet.
Patients are usually pleased with the results of breast augmentation, but first it is important to understand what is and isn’t possible, and what care might be needed in the future.

Why have breast augmentation surgery?
People have this surgery to make their breasts larger and improve their shape.Some women have smaller breasts than they would like. Also, breasts can droop with age or after pregnancy, breastfeeding and weight loss. Breast augmentation can improve both the shape and the droop to some degree.Some women have one breast much bigger than the other. Breast augmentation can balance breasts of different sizes.

How is the procedure performed?
Implants are placed either behind the breast (middle image opposite) or behind the muscle the breast sits on (image on the far right).

Putting implants behind the breast is the simplest option. Putting implants under the muscle gives more padding in very slim women. Your surgeon will discuss which is best for you.

Implants are usually inserted through a cut in the crease under the breast (the inframammary fold). They can also be inserted through a cut in the armpit or around the areola. Sometimes, a drain (a tube attached to a bottle or bag) is left in to drain away any fluid or blood. This is removed after a day or two on the ward.
