Breast Augmentation in Bristol
Breast Augmentation or ‘the boob job’ is an operation aimed to enhance the volume of the breasts. It the most popular plastic surgery procedure, and almost 1% of women have had it done. It can also be done to lift a slightly droopy breast or combined with a mastopexy (breast lift) if the breast is very droopy and more volume is wanted. Most women seeking this surgery have always had smaller breasts and are self-conscious about the appearance. This can affect their choice of clothing, activities, relationships – even confidence at work. They are fed up of padded bras and want a bigger breast out of the bra too! In some women, volume has been lost after pregnancy or weight loss or one breast is a different size to the other (asymmetry) and breast augmentation can be a good option for these patients too. Do not be tempted to enlarge the breasts ‘naturally’ with breast enhancement pills. These contain phytoestrogens which have not been properly tested – many patients gain weight, there is a risk of deep vein thrombosis and possible risk of cancer.
Breast augmentation surgery can be done a number of ways in Bristol. The extra volume comes from insertion of a silicone implant either under the breast gland or under the muscle beneath the breast gland. Silicone is extensively used in the medical as well as other industries and is thought to be entirely safe. Implants can be a round or teardrop shape. I have extensive experience of all the latest techniques and will be able to advise which technique is best for you, depending on the shape and amount of breast volume you have, and your desired volume and shape. Many surgeons are only familiar with one or two techniques, so its important to know, whoever you see, that they are suggesting the operation that is best for you rather than just the operation they are able to do. For more details of the procedure, see ‘Breast Augmentation Information Leaflet’ below.
My patients are highly satisfied with their surgery. This includes hospital and nursing staff who have asked me to perform the operation after seeing my outcomes, and by personal recommendation of friends and relatives who like my friendly yet professional approach, and know they are in safe hands. My patients are more comfortable with their appearance after surgery, their confidence and self-esteem is better. They feel they can wear more revealing clothing and often personal and sexual relationships improve. Its an operation I enjoy doing knowing predictably good results.
