Breast enlargement 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 boob job, may be for you.
Breast Augmentation with a Difference
Consultation with the Surgeon
Each breast enlargement consultation is with the surgeon who will perform your surgery. We are with you every step of the way and make sure you feel comfortable during the whole process. We specialise in performing multiple procedures during one operation to minimise the possible risks associated with general anaesthesia and lessen recovery time. Some patients may opt for a breast enlargement or tummy tuck at the same time, but it is important to discuss this with your surgeon beforehand so they can show you the most suitable options for achieving the figure you want. We offer complimentary follow up appointments.
Achieving a Natural Look
Our techniques will give you a very natural appearance, but with ‘more natural’ we go one step further. We are one of the few clinics to use the trans axillary, or armpit incision, for a more natural look. You will have the choice of which technique and which incision is used. With the widest range of implants including Natrelle & B-Lite, we can achieve the most natural look and feel.
Rest Assured you are in Safe Hands
We are one of a limited number of clinics in London which uses Bio Dynamic Analysis and Crisalix 3D, a visual tool to help you to fully understand and visualise the impact of different sized breast implants. Our implants come with a lifetime assurance against defects and their manufacture if regulated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) the world’s toughest medical approval authority.
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.

Breast Enlargement Surgery
I am very happy with the breast enlargement performed by Dr Alexandrides. From my first consultation to my aftercare appointments, things could not go more smoothly. He listened patiently and answered all of my questions. I never felt pressured or rushed. The hospital was clean and very comfortable. All of staff and nurses that I dealt with were very friendly and really put me at ease!

Implant Positioning – You have 3 Options Available to you:
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:
Below the breast
This type of incision is one of the most common. With this procedure the implant is inserted under the breast in the crease where the breast meets the chest. Post-op the enlarged breast hangs over the scars hiding it from view.
Around the areola
This is a virtually scar-free option where the incision is made in an area which, due to its colour and texture, renders the incision point barely. This is a popular technique for those who wish to outwardly conceal their breast enlargement as far as possible.
Under the armpit
Implants can be inserted from under the armpit, again this is a virtually scar free procedure as any residual scarring is not visible when the arms are not elevated.
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 Breast Surgery Procedure
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.
