Our bespoke Breast Suite is a dedicated space that hosts this technology and allows you peace and privacy while you choose your are implants with the help of your pre-op advisor.
Your Questions Answered
A breast augmentation is the most popular operation we perform. it alters the size and shape of your breasts with a silicone implant which may be inserted in front of the muscle, behind the muscle or using the sub-fascial or ‘dual plane’ placement.
Your surgeon will discuss the size and shape you are looking for and advise on what is possible based on your natural breast size and body shape. You will be able to take your time examining the look and feel of your new breasts using the visualization system in our Breast Suite.
Implants can be placed either on top of the pectoralis muscle but under the breast tissue (this is known as sub-glandular insertion), or partially beneath the pectoralis muscle (sub-muscular insertion). there is also the option of using the ‘dual plane’ method in which the implant sits behind muscle in the upper breast and tissue in the lower breast
Round implants add volume to the upper part of the breast giving a rounded look. tear-drop shaped (anatomical) implants are more in keeping with the natural shape of the breast.
“Profile” refers to how far the implant will stand out. there are a variety of different profiles available. “high” and “extra high” are the largest, while “medium” and “low” give a more subtle enhancement.
The recovery time is relatively quick for this surgery but we recommend that patients take up to 5 days off work to recover. This may vary according to the type of work that is carried out by the patient. You will be advised accordingly following consultation.

How it works
We scan your body with an iPad equipped with a special sensor. A few seconds later, an image of your body appears on a large screen in front of you in 3D. You can then select implants of various different shapes and sizes and with a single click, see how they would look on your body, comparing the new image with you actual image. You get an actual 3D “before” and “after” view of how different sizes of implants would look on your body. It’s a great way to check a number of sizes or whether a round or anatomical implant would best suit your shape.
