Breast augmentation

Breast augmentation (also known as “boob job” or “breast implants”), is a procedure to increase the size of your breasts. This is achieved by using silicone breast implants placed either over or under the chest (pectoral) muscle to increase volume. The implant size, shape and position is selected depending on the final look you are trying to achieve.

There are many reasons women may choose to undergo breast augmentation. Some women feel their breasts are too small for their frame, others are unhappy with the changes they notice after pregnancy and breast-feeding, weight change and the natural ageing process.

It is completely normal for some people to feel self conscious about their appearance. A breast augmentation may help to restore confidence.

About Breast augmentation

What breast augmentation involves:

Breast augmentation with implants is usually performed under general anaesthetic. This is to ensure optimal patient comfort during the procedure.

An incision is made on the underside of the breast and the implant is placed either under the breast tissue or under the chest (pectoral) muscle as discussed during your consultation.

The incision is carefully sutured, dressings applied and a surgical bra fitted.
