Women often have an idealisation of the perfect breasts which embody femininity. Often comparing to those images we see every day in magazines and movies, online and through pictures of celebrities. Many cannot help but compare themselves and feel they do not match up and hence look for a breast enlargement.
Implants for a Shapelier, More Balanced You
From push up bras, to clothing with strategic detailing, bras with extra padding, to the famous ‘chicken fillets’. There are numerous ways to enhance the breasts. Yet it can be tiring and difficult to always ensure you’re wearing the right clothes / bra to give you the breasts you want. Being unhappy with your breasts can also leave you feeling unhappy in yourself, and with a lack of confidence. If you think having you ideal size and shape would make you feel more confident and happier with yourself then breast enlargement, or augmentation, may be for you.
Here at 111 Harley St. the patient’s satisfaction is of upmost importance to us, and we ensure that anyone considering a breast enlargement is aware of all the surgical options available and the results that can realistically be achieved. This is why we highly value personal consultations with a surgeon, and your operation will only be performed by someone who specialises in breast enlargement and who is on the UK Plastics Surgery Specialists Register.
The skill of our surgeons allows us to offer the widest range of breast enlargement options and include the option to introduce the implant through one of three insertion points
No matter how skilled the surgeon, there will always be some residual scarring. For many women this is not an issue, but for some it can be a major concern and we can offer treatments to help with this. Fraxel Scar Revision technology can be offered as a treatment plan as part of recovery, which can reduce visible scarring by up to 80%.
The surgery will usually take one to three hours. An incision will be made either below the breast, around the areola or under the armpit and every care is taken to ensure that the resulting scars will be as minimal as possible. Working through the incision, the surgeon will lift the breast tissue and skin to create a pocket. This is usually either directly behind the breast tissue or underneath the chest wall muscle. The implants are then cantered beneath the nipples, and stitches are used to close the incisions. These also may be taped for extra support.
Following the operation you will likely experience some fluid drainage from the incisions. Occasionally, small drainage tubes may be inserted beneath the skin for a few days to prevent fluid build-up. They will usually be removed before you are discharged from the hospital. A drip may be inserted in your arm to keep you hydrated. However, as soon as you can drink enough fluids it will be removed. To control swelling and help your skin better fit its new contours, you will be fitted with a supporting bra. You will need to wear day and night for six weeks following surgery. You will usually be able to resume normal activity within one week, and exercise after six.
