Things to know before undergoing breast enlargement surgery
Without a doubt one of the most popular forms of cosmetic surgery available in the UK is breast enlargement surgery.
Widely considered the ‘go to’ procedure for women who wish to increase the size of their breasts, it remains the most requested form of breast surgery in the world.
At The ME Clinic we specialise in breast surgery and in particular have many satisfied patients who have undergone breast enlargement surgery with us. In this blog we will be looking at the things you need to know before undergoing breast enhancement surgery.
This procedure is designed to enhance the size of the breasts
Unlike procedures such as the breast lift or breast reduction an enlargement procedure is specifically designed to make the breasts bigger. This in most cases requires a silicone implant any procedure that takes just a few hours.
There are different sizes of implant
When completing breast enlargement surgery you will be given a choice of implant sizes. Depending on what look you’re aiming for, the size of the implant will be chosen based on your body frame and well as the overall aesthetic you like.
Surgery take place under general anaesthetic
As with all forms of breast surgery the procedure takes place after you have been put under general anaesthetic. This is to ensure your comfort throughout the surgery. As with all forms of cosmetic surgery there is some risk associated with undergoing a procedure under general anaesthetic so it is important to ask your surgeon prior to the procedure taking place about this to make sure you’re fully informed.
Implants need replacing
It’s a common misconception that silicone breast implants I’ll built to last for life, but in most cases a breast augmentation will need to be reperformed after 10 to 15 years. It is worth considering the financial implications of this, however many women are understanding that this is a fair trade to have the breasts they want.
The implant can be placed above or below the muscle
Every patient who undergoes breast augmentation surgery is different and the type of procedure you require will be tailored based on the appearance wish to achieve. Your surgeon will go through the intricacies of what happens during a boob job during your consultation.
What happens before/after surgery
You will have a final consultation with your surgeon plus a follow up post-operatively to make sure you’re doing well. An overnight stay in hospital is required before you are released to recover further at home.
