Our surgeon will examine your breasts and make key assessments on the following points:
Remember that your consultation is the perfect starting point to discuss with our surgeons everything about having this procedure.
Please read the FAQ’s menu to find answers to a list of frequently asked questions by patients before and after their procedures were carried out.
Your surgery time is usually between 30 minutes to 60 minutes.
Breast Enlargement is carried out under General Anaesthetic, which means you will be fast asleep for the full 60 minutes of the procedure.
The Surgeon begins by making a small incision and this is normally in the bottom crease of the breast (Inframammary incision).
There are two other areas of incision that can alternatively be made around the bottom half of the areola (Periareolar incision) or a small incision under the armpit (Transaxillary incision). Remember that the choice of incision largely depends on your choice, and not so much on the type of implant or your particular anatomy.
Your surgeon then prepares to insert the Implant. In this case there are 3 options on the placement of the implant which will have an effect on preferred cleavage and natural look and feel preferences.
The first is the Submuscular which is placing the implant under the pectoral muscle and also known as a subpectoral placement.
The second choice is Subglandular which is fitting the implants completely behind the breast tissue.
And the third choice being Subfacial which is insertion of the implant under the facial layer of the pectoral muscle but on top of the actual muscle itself.
Your surgeon will then close the incision made to each breast and assess the results. Upon being completely happy with the final result as was discussed during your consultation, your surgeon completes the surgery.
Our priority is that your recovery is straightforward and quick. You will be provided aftercare instructions by our surgeon once he has assessed you and is ready to discharge you personally from the hospital. This will include any pain medications and a support bra that will be fitted to ensure your new breasts are supported in their position.
Many surgeons advise no showering for one week which is a very difficult task for anyone. We advise that it’s ok to have regular hand showers with lukewarm water and ensuring no water is submerged onto the incisions. We will advise you of this before you leave the hospital.
THE FIRST 24 HOURS AFTER SURGERY
You will feel slightly drowsy from the anaesthesia until it wears off. At this point, any swelling to the breasts will be at its highest and your upper body movement will be quite limited while the swelling slowly decreases.
THE FIRST 3 DAYS AFTER SURGERY
You will still feel slightly tired after few days and this is generally due to the temporary change to sleeping completely on your back without rolling. You may have a slight feeling of tightness around your breasts. This is while your skin expands gently to your new breast shape and size. Adjusting to the new breast weight/size may change your breathing pattern slightly while you get accustomed to the new you.
You may notice a reduced nipple sensation during the immediate recovery, but this should return over the coming weeks. In the first 7 days, your support bra must be kept on at all times to help your new breasts stay in place whilst healing.
Pain and Discomfort are generally very low and can be managed with over the counter medication. In rare cases, you may feel small spasms in the breast due to nerves healing.
5 DAYS AFTER SURGERY
You should be able to return to non-physical work after 5 days from the procedure but must avoid any strenuous activities. Your breast may still be slightly swollen, though this will not cause you any major discomfort in your daily movement by this time.
7 DAYS AFTER SURGERY
You will return to the hospital for your post-operative review, in which any stitches are removed. Though the surgeon uses dissolvable stitches, we will check to make sure your incisions have healed. You will also be assessed with any leftover swelling and any advice to help improve your recovery time.
14 DAYS AFTER SURGERY
You can start to resume light gym and cardio in moderation. You should not lift any heavy objects or go swimming /spa until 6 weeks after your surgery.
Your results are instantly visible after surgery, but you must allow between 4-6 months before the implants have fully settled into place. During this time your breasts will be adjusting into place.
1 YEAR AFTER SURGERY
As apart of your aftercare, we advise all patients to book in once a year to see their surgeon for a brief assessment of the consistent results.
