Time to focus on you

Breast enlargement surgery is known by many names: breast augmentation, breast enhancement, mammoplasty or just simply “a boob job”. It is one of the most regularly performed procedures in the UK, and usually involves the insertion of implants under the breast tissue.

This will increase the size and/or change the shape of your breasts.  

You can rest assured that, at Transform, a breast enlargement is not only a commonly performed procedure, but it will also be carried out by a highly experienced surgeon who will be registered with the General Medical Council (GMC). 

Enhance how you look, change how you feel

Breast augmentation aims to enhance the size and shape of the breasts by giving them a fuller and more contoured look. There are many reasons you might choose to have this surgery.

You may want to restore breast volume that you’ve lost due to weight loss, pregnancy, breast feeding or aging. You may not be happy with the shape of your breasts, and want to create a more contoured shape. For some women, asymmetrical breasts can cause distress; this can be rectified by inserting implants of different sizes, which create more balanced and symmetrical contours 

Following surgery, you might find that you prefer the way you look in your clothes, and it can open up a whole new range of outfits to choose from, tooThe effect that being happier with the way you look can never be underestimatedTo quote one of our breast augmentation patients, feeling better on the outside can mean you feel better on the inside – her boob job was a real boost to her self-esteem and confidence.  

Let’s delve into the detail

As with every surgical procedure, it’s important that you’re aware of any potential risks that breast augmentation surgery may pose, however small, so that you can weigh these up against the benefits that surgery can bring.

Your surgeon assistant and expert surgeon will be happy to discuss any possible complications and give you detailed information regarding the procedure. As a guide, these may include bleeding, infections, bruising, numbness, scars and rupture.   

You, reimagined

Women choose to have breast enlargements for many reasons. This surgery would be most suitable if you have small breasts, asymmetrical breasts or breasts that have lost their shape or size after pregnancy and/or weight loss.

While there’s no right or wrong reason for choosing to have breast augmentation, we’d always recommend that you carry out plenty of research beforehand. Speak to friends and family who have had breast surgery themselves to hear about their experience, and, of course, you can ask any questions you like during your surgical consultation with us 

You need to be at least 18 to be considered for breast enhancement surgery. This is because your body goes through many changes as you age, and so it should be fully developed before you pursue treatmentWe also recommend that you have a healthy BMI and no serious health conditions, have realistic goals for surgery and that you feel mentally ready for the procedure.  

You so deserve this

As a responsible provider of cosmetic surgery, we understand that each individual’s procedure is different, so our treatment plans are tailored specifically around your own unique needs. Because of this, the cost can vary, depending on the area/s you’re having treated.

We place a great deal of importance on our free face to face, no obligation consultations, during which you can discuss your requirements with your surgeon assistant. They’ll provide a detailed overview of the surgery cost and the various payment plans we have available. As well as being able to pay for your procedure outright, you can choose to spread the cost over several years via our flexible finance plans. Please view our pricing and finance page to read more about these.

FAQ

Breast Enlargement FAQs

More FAQs
How much does breast augmentation cost?
As a responsible provider of cosmetic surgery, we understand that every patient is different, and so your treatment will be tailored specifically to you. Because of this, our free face-to-face, no obligation consultations are particularly important. Following our consultation process, your surgeon assistant will provide a detailed pricing overview so that you know how much your procedure will cost, and you’ll also be given plenty of information regarding our flexible credit options. We’re happy to talk you through getting your boob job on finance, which means you can spread the cost over monthly repayments. Please take a look at our finance page to find out more about the available options.

It’s important to remember that, although cost is of course an important factor in your final decision, it should be considered alongside other elements such as high levels of care and patient safety, and your surgeon’s expertise and experience.
What type of breast implants do you offer?
Transform offers two brands of breast surgery implants – Motiva and Mentor. Both of these companies are worldwide leaders in breast aesthetics and implant manufacturing for breast augmentation and reconstruction procedures.

Mentor is part of the global healthcare company Johnson & Johnson group, and has 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.
Are breast implants safe?
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 cosmetic surgery industry, and all our surgeons are General Medical Council registered with high levels of experience and skill. When you come to us for your breast enlargement, you’ll have access to a two-year aftercare programme as standard, with the option to extend by up to three years for extra peace of mind. If you have any other questions or concerns about the safety of breast augmentation surgery, then our surgeons will be happy to talk to you more about this.
How long with my breast implants last?
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, we recommend getting your implants checked over by a surgeon around 10 years after your surgery to make sure everything’s still okay.
Can I have a breast uplift with my breast enlargement 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.
How old do you have to be to have breast implants?
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.
Can I get my boob job on finance?
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.
How long does breast enlargement surgery take?
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.
How long will I have to stay in hospital following my breast augmentation?
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.
What are the main risks of breast enlargement surgery?
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.
What’s the difference between ‘above the muscle’ and ‘behind the muscle’ implants?
‘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.
How do I know what size breast implants to choose?
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.
Will I have breast augmentation scars following 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.
Can I have a breast uplift with my breast enlargement?
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.
How will getting pregnant affect my breast implants?
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.
How do I get registered on the breast implant registry?
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.
What is ALCL?
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.

Next steps

Behind the scenes care to help you take centre stage

Your first appointment


The initial step in your breast enlargement journey is to talk to your surgeon assistant over the phone. You’ll be able to talk to them about why you’re considering a boob job, the likely costs 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 do decide to go ahead. If you feel ready, we’ll then book you in for your free consultation with one of our surgeons.

Your surgical consultation


At your free consultation, your surgeon will ask you about the results you want to achieve from your surgery. You can discuss every aspect of the procedure, from implant size and breast augmentation recovery time to the benefits and risks, with absolutely no obligation to go ahead. This surgical consultation can be carried out either over video chat or in person at your local clinic. Our surgeons are extremely knowledgeable and will be 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 breast surgery, they’ll then refer you to a clinic nurse who’ll perform some pre-op tests and procedures.

The surgery


During your consultation, you’ll discuss with your surgeon whether you want a general or local anaesthetic. Usually, if your procedure takes place under general anaesthetic, you’ll spend the night in the hospital afterwards. On the day of your surgery, you’ll meet with your surgeon so that you can go through the consent form, ask any last-minute questions, and have your chest marked in preparation for the planned incisions. 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 breast implants to be positioned either in front of, or behind, the pectoral (chest) muscle. Incisions are chosen very deliberately to make sure the scars are hidden, and the healed result is more aesthetically pleasing. Your surgeon will then close your wounds with stitches and may also wrap your breasts in a supportive dressing.

Recovery


We’ll be here throughout your breast enlargement recovery process to help you recuperate quickly and safely. Your surgeon will check that you’re properly recovered from the operation itself before discharging you. At this stage, you’ll feel very sore 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 day or two after your surgery, it’s normal for your breasts to feel high, heavy and tight. You can take over the counter pain relief to help you feel more comfortable. You’ll be able to see initial results straight after your surgery, and 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.

Aftercare


We believe that the highest quality aftercare is just as important as the surgery itself, and so we’re here to support you following your breast augmentation surgery. 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 achieve this. We recommend taking at least one week off work, and you should arrange two weeks of full-time support around the house. If you have kids, you’ll also need help with childcare. You should limit exercise after breast surgery to low-impact activities like walking, too.

Your breasts will be sensitive and swollen for quite a few weeks, but we’ll already have prepared you so that you know what to wear while you’re recovering from breast augmentation, including the type of bra you should use. 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.

Should you have any questions or concerns at all after your breast enlargement surgery, you can contact our 24/7 helpline for advice. You’ll also have a series of follow-up appointments with the Transform team to make sure you’re healing well. In addition, all Transform patients have access to our two-year aftercare programme as standard, and you’ll also be given the option to extend your aftercare cover for a period of up to five years.
