Breast augmentation surgery uses implants to enhance the size and shape of your breasts. The implants will be carefully selected to achieve the results you want.

What to Expect

Breast augmentation surgery is carried out under a general anaesthetic, so you will be asleep during the procedure. The surgeon will make a small incision alongside or underneath each of your breasts. The implants you have chosen will be carefully positioned before the incision is stitched up. The operation will usually take between 60 and 90 minutes.

After surgery, you should expect some pain, bruising and swelling. Your chest will probably feel a bit tight too. You will usually need to take about a week off to rest, during which you shouldn’t drive. It will take a few weeks for you to recover fully and you should avoid any heavy lifting or strenuous physical activity for at least a month. Although you’ll notice a difference right away, you should be aware that it can take a few months for your skin to heal and the full effects of the surgery to be seen.
