Our Founder and resident Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon, Dr Yannis Alexandrides, believes in 360-degree care and our 111 Harley St. clinic reflects this. Both our Surgical and Non-Surgical team live by this ethos every day and, as we have a plethora of skin and surgical concerns all covered under one roof, 111 Harley St. has it all!
The best thing about our aftercare program is that it is completely bespoke, no post-operative care is the same – but one element that always remains the same is our patient promise. We are dedicated to treating our patients with the highest levels of medical expertise alongside giving you the opportunity to enhance your skin with our range of non-surgical treatments to help diminish any scarring or post-surgery epidermal concerns.
Included in our post-aftercare promise are follow-ups and reviews for up to one year after your surgery. This ensures that we provide you with the most comprehensive care throughout your treatment and recovery. Our amazing Surgical Team will be at your service if you need someone to contact or have any questions. We also promise that in the unlikely circumstances that you require revision surgery, this will be carried out free of charge too.
After your surgery we always advise our patients to mobilise gently and gradually reintroduce their normal activities back into their life – especially activities such as exercise or any strenuous activity, (this recovery time is usually 2-4 weeks). It’s also important to regain your normal posture to avoid placing any excess stress on your back.
One key piece of advice is to sleep on your back for two weeks following, as due to the nature of surgery, your body will be sensitive and still adjusting to your new implants which is why we recommend waiting until this time is over before returning to your regular sleep habits. Propping yourself up with pillows or cushions will help keep you comfortable if you don’t enjoy sleeping on your back!
Of course, after any surgery, the treatment area will be dressed. Please keep your dressing on and dry until your next appointment at the clinic, this usually occurs 10 days after surgery, and it’s during this time where your surgical sutures will also be removed. You can shower with your dressings on but afterwards please gently pat them dry.
Once your sutures have been removed our Surgical Nurse will advise you on how best to care for the area – both topically and through your lifestyles practices.
Our care does not stop after surgery, so you can be reassured that our team will be with you every step of the way.
Here are 3 things to know about your breast enlargement London recovery:
You may notice changes in the breast and nipple sensations. This is normal where the patient can experience an increase in sensitivity and also a decrease.
Scarring can occur which improves over the years and the colouring can be different compared to your usual skin tone – scars range in colour and can be shades of white, pink and brown. We may advise you to meet with our Non-Surgical Co-Ordinator if you are very bothered by your scarring as they will be able to suggest laser or light treatments that can help improve their appearance. We recommend taking some of 111SKIN’s Reparative Beauty Dose. These are supplements to help accelerate your internal repair functions. 111SKIN’s Y Theorem Repair Serum is also advised to use and incorporated into your skincare regime throughout recovery and beyond (you will be given one at your first follow-up appointment).
The final results of surgery can take up to one year as this is how long it will take for your breast muscles and skin tissue to settle completely and heal. Although you’ll be able to see the results straightaway, it is only until this year is up that the true results can be seen as the breasts may subtly change throughout the recovery process. If you experience bleeding or anything unusual, please reach out to our team.
