Your breast augmentation journey

From conception through to your first dinner date. Familiarise yourself with your journey and print our long-form guide if you want to learn more.


Your journey

Consultation

During the consultation, I will explore the reasons for you requesting a breast augmentation. We will discuss what you expect from surgery and the ideal size and shape you are hoping to get.

After examining you, I will provide a bra for you to wear. There are implant ‘sizers’ that may be used to place into the bra, which will give us an estimated volume of implant to help you achieve your ideal breast size.

After trying a variety of sizes, we will agree on a range of acceptable implants, subject to restrictions indicated by your height, chest width and body shape. On the day please bring with you a tight white T-Shirt to aid the fitting of breast sizers.

Before surgery

Surgery

Implants may be placed under the breast through a variety of incisions, including the armpit, around the nipple or even the belly button. 

 The operation can take anywhere up to X hours and always starts once an qualified anaesthetist has safely sedated you.

I will see you immediately after surgery to discuss how things went and to check that all is well. I will make sure you are comfortable before you go home. In the vast majority of cases, patients undergoing breast augmentation are able to go home the same day. You will be given adequate pain relief.

Recovery

In the vast majority of cases, patients undergoing breast augmentation are able to go home the same day. You will be given adequate pain relief.

In the first 48 hours after surgery you'll be advised to avoid any activities that can increase your blood pressure, this helps avoid unnecessary bleeding that can extend your recovery.

After 6 weeks you'll be back doing everything as normal including driving, lifting and flying. 

Each patient I see is given personalised aftercare advise based on their operation, lifestyle and condition. Even after the operation is successful I am always on hand to answer your queries and check your progress.

Questions and answers

I am asked many questions about breast augmentation, here are some of the most common.

Should I use aloe vera on my scars?

You may use any lotion of your choosing, such as E45 or bio-oil. 5 minutes morning and evening for about a year. Make this part of your ‘routine’.

Will I get scars?

All surgical incisions cause scarring tissue. I work to make this as minimal as possible and along with a regular moisturising regime for 12 months you can further reduce the scarring.

Can I drive after surgery

You should never drive immeatiely after surgery, a minimum of two weeks recovery is needed and if you can put it off longer then you are advised to do so.

How much bleeding should I expect?

Some but not too much, severe bleeding and swelling would require a return to theatre.
