Breast Surgery - is it right for me?

Everyone has a different reason

One of the most revolutionary treatments of the moment to fix the breast shape. Breast enhancement surgery helps women make lasting changes to their looks so they can enjoy their image and feel comfortable in their own bodies.

Types of breast surgery at the Fitzrovia Hospital

Breast Augmentation

If you desire to increase the size of your breasts, breast implants or breast augmentation surgery is the best option for you.

Also known as breast enlargement or the “boob job”, it is a very effective procedure providing thousands of women with renewed body confidence every year.

Our surgeons ensure that great care is taken to really understand the results you wish to achieve. It is important that a natural shape is retained and your enhanced breasts are a size which suit you. Our experienced surgeons will discuss the range of techniques which can be utilised along with any risks and details of anticipated recovery.

Breast enlargement can be achieved with implants or alternatively “fat transfer” to add volume with more subtle results. Only the highest quality implants are used, the long term safety of our patients is paramount. The procedure is performed under local anaesthetic and usually takes around 90 minutes.

Breast Reduction

Making breasts smaller is only one of the many facets of breast reduction surgery. The true goals of breast reduction are beautiful breasts, achieved through enhancement of breast shape, position, projection, proportion and decreased volume.

Correct and improve:

Some of our patients decide to have a breast reduction when they have:

  • Heavy and pendulous breasts which give mild discomfort.
  • Larger than normal breasts and can cause a great deal of distress and discomfort.
  • Backache from having to support the extra weight and breast pain.
  • Difficulty buying clothes due to chest disproportion.
  • Difficulty in purchasing underwear.
  • Inability to wear strappy tops or even the choice to not wear a bra.
  • Desire to look better in your clothes / swimwear.
  • Inability to take part in physical sports.

Breast Uplift (Mastopexy)

For so many women, much more important than breast size is a beautiful, natural, youthful breast shape. You may be happy with the size of your breasts but the natural effects of ageing and/or pregnancy and childbirth may have changed their shape and left them looking much less pert.

An increasing number of women are opting for breast uplift surgery to restore the natural fullness to their breasts and feel confident in their bodies again.

A breast uplift can achieve:

  • Firmer and higher breasts that look more voluminous.
  • Restore youthful nipple position.
  • Improved and more attractive appearance in a wider range of clothing options including swimsuits and strappy and fitted tops.
  • Able to wear clothing without the need for a bra to support the breast.
  • Increases self-confidence. Those women who look good with pert breasts often makes a woman feel better about herself and more feminine.
  • Can achieve symmetry of the breasts.
  • Relieve contact of the breast skin on the chest.

Breast Implant Removal

We frequently see women who have decided to have their breast implants removed. Just as a woman has the right to have breast implants put in, it is her right have them removed.

There are many reasons that women may choose to undergo breast explant surgery to remove their implants.

If you’re unhappy with the appearance of your current breast implants or have experienced a problem with them, then you may be considering implant removal / replacement surgery.

Possible reasons for removing or replacing your breast implants:

  • Ruptured/deflated implants.
  • Concern about the integrity of your implants – perhaps following the PIP scandal.
  • ‘Bottoming out’ – when the implants sink below the natural breast crease.
  • Capsular contracture – where the implants change & become firm.
  • Perhaps you’re considering starting a family and are anxious about breastfeeding with implants.
  • You may feel that your breast implants no longer suit your body or they are the wrong size and shape.
