What is Breast Enlargement (Augmentation Mammoplasty)?

Breast Enlargement Surgery is for women who consider their breasts to be too small, not of the same size, or believe that their breasts have lost shape. In breast enlargement surgery, breast implants are used to increase the size of breasts.

How does breast enlargement surgery work?

breast enlargement surgery procedure

Breast Enlargement surgery procedure involves creation of incisions in your breasts. These incisions may be created under your breast, towards your armpits or around the areola. Then breast implants are then placed either at the front or at the back of your pectoral (chest) muscles.

This procedure takes about one or two hours for successful completion and is usually carried out under general anaesthesia. We do advise overnight stay, however, you may return home the very same day if our surgeon is confident about it.

The implant size and the breast augmentation method used will be determined by your surgeon during the consultation session. This consultation is essential to ensure that the best recommendations and implants are offered that take into consideration your comfort and lifestyle.

Natalie Jones

Natalie is mother to a young family, living in Merseyside. Recently, she underwent breast augmentation at the Nu Cosmetic hospital. “Before I had my kids, I was low on confidence and this was due to my breasts. After having kids, this condition worsened and I really desired a bigger chest, as well as a lift.”

After making hours of research and attending consultations, Natalie booked in for a consultation with one of Nu Cosmetic Clinic´s specialist surgeons. “The information available online for Nu Cosmetic was great. I could relate to the real life stories and gauge the excellent feedback and satisfaction from other clients.”

Natalie met with a surgeon for the consultation. This involved discussing the procedure, along with the associated features and benefits. “I felt like he knew me as a person, and could relate to exactly what I wanted”. This was in contrast to other clinics Natalie visited, where she claimed it was more what they wanted to perform and not her, in addition to unwanted follow up calls trying to force a decision.

Joanne Holden

Joanne is a 41 year old professional woman from Liverpool. She recently underwent breast augmentation with Nu Cosmetic clinic at their Manchester branch.

“I needed a subtle uplift of my chest, as it was not as toned as in my younger years. I was not looking for a dramatic change, just more of fullness and tone”. A full consultation with our medical team and surgeon suggested that Joanne´s augmentation procedure should take her from a CC to a DD/E cup size. This would give her the natural fullness that she sought. It was also recommended by the consultant that this operation is replicated every ten years, for health and aesthetic issues. The breast insert types and sizes were chosen specifically for Joanne based on her requirements and consultant recommendations.

The procedure was completed within one day. An operative time of 1.5 hours meant that Joanne was able to go home the same evening. Outwith this, an initial ´downtime´ of 3-5 days allowed Joanne to return to an almost normal routine shortly after the operation.

“I had to take a few days off work, and took antibiotics as a precaution in the first instance. I was advised to not drive for several weeks (as it could invalidate my insurance). Also I needed to avoid the gym for 6 weeks.”

The end outcome? Joanne achieved a result she says is ´really fantastic.´ This procedure has given her more confidence within herself and her daily outlook. This opinion was also shared by her family, friends and colleagues. ´The clinic provided me with a level of care and professionalism second to none, and I have had no doubt recommending them to my friends.´

Frequently Asked Questions

Depending on the complexity of the procedure, the surgery normally takes about 90 minutes, not including time in recovery.

Yes, the results of a breast enlargement are permanent. However, if you loose/ gain a substantial amount of weight, or you have a baby, your breasts may change shape.

We recommend that people take a week off work following the procedure (more if your job is particularly physical). Strenuous activities, heavy lifting and exercise should be avoided for about 6 weeks after your surgery.

No, the only way to reduce the size, or change the shape of your nipples is by surgery.

Yes, you can combine this procedure with other breast or body surgeries. You can discuss this in full at your free consultation.

Nowadays, there are a vast number of implants from you to choose from depending on the look you are trying to achieve.

As a guide, you should choose between round or tear drop shape (tear drop giving a more natural appearance), the size of implant you require and the projection.

This concerns the placement of the implant. Your surgeon will be able to advise on the best technique for you, as much depends on your skin, build and desired result.

As a general rule, under the muscle will give a more natural appearance, where over the muscle is sometimes better for women with a moderate amount of sagging.

Whenever skin is cut, nerves are also cut; this may result in altered sensation to the area, particularly at the incision site. All care will be taken to maintain sensation as much as possible.

You should be at a healthy weight for your height when you have surgery as this lowers risks related to anaesthetic. For the best aesthetic results, we recommend that you are at your ideal weight at the time of surgery as further weight loss or gain can change the results of your surgery.

You should check with your surgeon regarding safe timings of air travel following your surgery. Many airlines have their own protocols and you should inform your travel insurance company if you have had recent surgery.

We recommend that in the weeks after surgery, you are close to one of the locations Nu Cosmetic Clinic can refer you to in case you have any concerns, so foreign holidays may be best avoided until a few months after your procedure.

All clients must be at least 18 years of age to have surgery. We do not set an upper age limit for our procedures. Suitability for surgery will be discussed at your free consultation with your surgeon.

Yes, if you are at all unsure about what your surgeon has told you. We will be more than happy to refer you for a second free consultation with another surgeon.
