Your Guide to Breast Enlargement Surgery
Breast enlargement is becoming an increasingly popular form of cosmetic surgery. Women who feel that they are perhaps not as large as they want to be may consider going under the knife to have this operation to give them fuller breasts, more confidence and a more positive attitude to their bodies. If you’re considering breast enlargement surgery for the first time then check out the quick guide below for an overview.
What happens during breast enlargement surgery?
Your surgeon will discuss the options with you to ensure that you get the right treatment for your body and requirements prior to making a decision. The surgeon will make an incision and insert silicone or saline implants in front of or just behind the chest muscle – this is called an inframammary incision. Surgeons can also make the incision through the nipple which is called a periareolar incision. You will be put under general anaesthetic during the operation and it usually takes between one and two hours.
How much does breast enlargement cost?
Breast enlargement prices vary from clinic to clinic so it’s advisable to get a number of prices from different surgeons but it’s equally important that you feel comfortable with the surgeon you choose. As an approximation, you could expect to pay anything from £3000 to £5000 for a breast enlargement. Although the price of breast enlargement is an important factor, you need to bear in mind that your surgeon’s experience and reputation also plays a huge part in the successfulness of the surgery so you shouldn’t base your decision on the cheapest price alone.
How long will the breast implants last?
Breast implants can last for approximately fifteen to twenty years on average but it can vary from woman to woman. It’s advisable to have your implants checked after ten years to see if there are any signs of damage as just like any other part of the body, breast implants are susceptible to wear and tear over the years. If you do suffer with excessive swelling or discomfort or notice sagging or reduction then you should see a medical expert as soon as possible.
