Breast enlargement

Breast enlargement, augmentation or a ‘boob job’ – whatever you like to call it, you’re not alone in considering this type of surgery. In fact, it’s become one of the most frequently requested cosmetic procedures in the UK.

“After having severely uneven breasts I can now confidently wear anything I want to and feel great in my body!”*

Abbie, 22nd June 2017

*Results and benefits vary from patient to patient

Many women find after breast augmentation surgery that larger, fuller or more symmetrical breasts enhance their appearance. Here at Transform, our team guides thousands of women each year through their breast enlargement journeys.

You can rest assured knowing that not only is a ‘boob job’ a commonly performed procedure, but that yours will be carried out by a highly experienced surgeon registered with the General Medical Council (GMC) in one of our Care Quality Commission (CQC) registered clinics. You’ll also have access to our comprehensive three-year aftercare programme, giving you confidence that you’re in safe hands. Get in touch and start your journey to becoming the best you.

frequently asked
questions

You’ll have the opportunity to ask your surgeon any questions at your consultation, but to start the ball rolling, here are the answers to some questions that our patients most frequently ask about breast surgery.

Breast enlargement FAQs

In the UK, the youngest age for breast implants to be considered is 18 years old. The breast augmentation age limit is to ensure that breasts have fully grown and developed naturally before any surgery is undertaken.

At Transform, our ‘boob job’ prices start from £5,990*; however, each individual’s procedure is different and so it will be tailored specifically to your needs. This means that breast augmentation surgery costs in our UK clinics can vary in line with your individual requirements, such as the size and type of implants you’d like.

Because of this, we place a great deal of importance on our free face-to-face, no-obligation consultations. Following our consultation process, your patient advisor will provide a detailed overview of our breast implant costs and you can find out about our financing options. Please view our finance page to read more about our flexible credit options, available via our partnership with a specialist financial provider.

 

Yes, you can. We have various breast enlargement finance options which you can discuss with your advisor during your consultation. These include a 0% interest-free credit plan which involves a minimum deposit of £500 and then 12 monthly repayments for the remaining balance. There are also breast augmentation financing options that allow you to spread the cost over 12, 24 or 36 months at 16.9% APR. Please note that all finance is subject to individual status, terms and conditions apply, and you must meet the eligibility criteria. Our finance options are provided by Omni Capital Retail Finance Ltd who are regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority. If you’d like to read more about breast implant financing, please take a look at our cosmetic surgery finance page for more details.

Transform offers two types of breast surgery implants – Motiva and Mentor. Both are worldwide leaders in breast aesthetics and implant manufacturing for breast augmentation and reconstruction procedures.

Mentor is part of the global Johnson & Johnson group and have over 30 years’ experience in creating high-quality breast implants. Mentor offers two types of breast implants which are approved by the FDA and available in a wide variety of sizes. This includes their MemoryGel implants which are round in shape, and MemoryShape implants which are teardrop in shape. You can find out more on our Mentor breast implants page.

Motiva breast implants are created by Establishment Labs, renowned worldwide for its commitment to customer care and quality. Motiva implants are made using 100% silicone gel and are available in over 500 different shapes, so you can choose the implant that’s right for you. You can find out more on our Motiva breast implants page.

During your consultation, you can discuss the different breast enlargement surgery options with your surgeon, including the size and types of breast implants that will best suit you and your body.

Breast enlargement surgery usually takes between one and two hours under general anaesthetic. Your breast surgery time will depend on the type of procedure you’re having. Prior to this, you will probably spend a couple of hours before the procedure meeting with your surgeon and being prepared for theatre. After the procedure, you are likely to be in recovery for a few more hours until you wake up from the anaesthetic.

You may be able to return home on the same day that you have your surgery, but many of our patients require or prefer an overnight stay in one of our dedicated hospitals. We’ll discuss what we think is best with you before we book your breast augmentation surgery, so you know what to expect on the day.

Although breast enlargement is a very commonly performed surgery, it’s important to remember that any surgery carries some potential risks. The risks of breast enlargement surgery include bleeding, infection, and implant rippling. We’ll discuss all potential risks with you prior to surgery and answer any questions you have.

Breast implants have an exceptional safety record and have been used in over a million procedures worldwide. Rest assured that we only use the safest breast implants in the industry, and all our surgeons are General Medical Council registered with a high level of experience and expertise. When you come to us for your breast enlargement, you’ll have access to a three-year aftercare programme as standard, with the option to extend to up to 10 years for extra peace of mind. If you have any other questions or concerns about how safe breast augmentation surgery is, then our surgeons will be happy to talk to you more about this.

Breast implants are not designed to last forever, but they don’t have a specific lifespan. Most surgeons say it’s wise to have your implants replaced between 10 to 20 years after the original procedure. Even if you’ve not experienced any problems with them, we recommend getting your implants checked over by a surgeon around 10 years after your surgery to make sure everything’s still okay.

‘Over’ or ‘above the muscle’ procedures involve placing the breast implant in front of your breast muscle, which means it’s more superficial and sits just below the breast tissue. This might be the best option for you if you have some breast tissue already or if you’re restoring fullness to deflated breasts. ‘Under’ or ‘behind the muscle’ refers to an implant that sits behind the breast muscle. This type of breast implant placement is suitable for women with very small breasts who have very little breast fat. This method reduces the likelihood of your breast implants showing and gives a more natural-looking result; however, it can be more difficult to place larger implants this way. Your surgeon will discuss the different types of breast enhancement surgery with you and get to understand the results you want to achieve. They will then recommend the best type of breast implant placement for your body.

After discussing the look that you want to achieve, your surgeon will make their recommendations on which size of implant to go for and explain their choice to you. Although your surgeon will be able to estimate your new breast size based on the implant size and the current size of your breasts, we can’t guarantee exactly what cup size your breasts will be after surgery.

You can expect minor scars after breast implant surgery, but these will fade significantly over time and become much less noticeable. Where your scars are will depend on the method your surgeon uses: one method leaves a scar under the breast hidden in the crease, while others can involve making incisions around the nipple or through the armpit. We’ll make sure you understand where any breast augmentation scars will occur before you book in for surgery.

Yes, many women choose to combine the two procedures and have a breast lift at the same time as their enlargement. Surgeons may recommend this if your breasts have lost volume and you want to lift them while also increasing the size.

Pregnancy affects breasts with implants in the same way that it affects breasts without them. This means that if you gain a lot of weight during pregnancy, the skin of the breast can stretch, and sagging may occur afterwards. You can read our post on breastfeeding after a boob job for information on how breast implants affect nursing.

The Breast and Cosmetic Implant Registry (BCIR) captures the details of all breast implant procedures completed in England by both the NHS and private providers. This is so they can be traced in the event of a product recall or other safety concern relating to a specific type of implant. Transform can add details of your implants to the register after your surgery at no additional cost. To request details with regards to your breast implants, please email [email protected] We currently hold information on all breast implants used by Transform since 2004.

Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma (ALCL) is an extremely rare type of non-Hodgkins lymphoma (NHL), a cancer involving the cells of the immune system. ALCL can affect 1 in 24,000 women who have breast implants. It is important to emphasise the extremely low probability of ALCL occurring in women with boob implants. Instances of Breast Implant Associated ALCL (BIA-ALCL) generally occur several years after the breast implant surgery; on average, eight years following the procedure. The majority of cases are easily treated by removing both the implant and the surrounding capsule, known as a total capsulectomy. Breast enlargement patients will be made fully aware of this condition as part of the consent process before having their procedure.

Breast augmentation surgery step by step

The first step is to meet your patient advisor. You’ll be able to talk to them about why you’re considering the procedure, the likely boob job price and finance options, how much time you’ll probably need to take off work, and when you’d like to have the surgery. If you feel ready, we’ll then book you in for your free consultation with one of our surgeons.

At your free consultation, your surgeon will ask you about the results you want to achieve from breast surgery. You can discuss every aspect of your boob enlargement, from implant size and breast augmentation recovery time, to the benefits and risks, with no obligation to go ahead. Our surgeons are extremely knowledgeable and happy to answer any questions you may have. They’ll look at your medical history, measure your breasts, guide you through your implant options and advise you about the most appropriate size. They won’t be able to guarantee an exact final cup size, but they’ll work with you to ensure you choose the right breast implants for you and your body. If you feel ready to go ahead and book your surgery, they’ll then refer you to a clinic nurse who’ll perform some pre-op tests and procedures.

You can choose to have breast implant surgery as a day case or as an overnight stay in one of our cosmetic surgery hospitals. On the day of your surgery, you’ll meet with your surgeon so you can go through the consent form and ask any last-minute questions. You’ll then be introduced to the rest of your surgical team before going into theatre. During the one to two hour procedure, your surgeon will make incisions in your breasts, either in the crease under your breast, around the nipple or towards your armpit. This allows for your boob implants to be positioned in place either in front of or behind the pectoral (chest) muscle.

We’ll be here throughout the boob job recovery process to help you recuperate quickly and safely. Your surgeon will check that you’ve properly recovered from the operation before discharging you. At this stage, you’ll feel very sore from your operation and won’t be able to drive, so you’ll need to make sure that you’ve made arrangements to get home. For the first 24 to 48 hours following your surgery, it’s normal for your breasts to feel high, heavy and tight; we’ll provide you with pain relief to help you feel more comfortable. You’ll be able to see initial results straight after your surgery. Although your breasts may feel slightly swollen or sit ‘high’ at first, they’ll settle in six to eight weeks when you’ll be able to see the final results.

We believe that the highest quality aftercare is just as important as the surgery itself, so we’re here to support you through all the breast augmentation recovery stages. You’ll need to give your body plenty of time to heal and we’ll give you detailed breast augmentation recovery tips on the best way to do this. We recommend at least one week off work and two weeks of full-time support around the house. You’ll also need help with childcare and you should limit exercise after breast surgery to low-impact activities like walking.

Your breasts will be sensitive and swollen for quite a few weeks, but we’ll have advised you on what to wear while recovering from breast augmentation, including the type of bra you need to wear. You should rest as much as you can and avoid strenuous activity or stretching, especially until your stitches have been removed, which will happen one to two weeks after your surgery. Within six to eight weeks, your body should have healed to the extent that you’ll see the full results of your ‘boob job’ surgery. If you have any questions or concerns at all, you can contact our 24/7 helpline. You’ll also have a series of follow-up appointments with the Transform team to make sure you’re healing well. All patients have access to our three-year aftercare programme as standard and you’ll have the option to extend cover to up to 10 years.
