Our postoperative support team phone all our patients the day after their procedure and then every other day thereafter for the first two weeks. The proactive nature of our postoperative support gives every patient the best opportunity for a smooth postoperative recovery free of complications. In many cases if complications were to occur, their impact is markedly lessened by early detection, prompt clinical assessment and correct treatment. Where a patient expresses concern to our team over the phone, then we often call patients in the same day for assessment with one of our expert nursing team. Even if there is no significant issue, the careful explanation and calm reassurance provided by our team can help to alleviate any worries you may have experienced.
Recommend highly!! Always wanted a breast augmentation and never had the nerve to go through with it. Until I got Recommended Centre for Surgery and spoke to Carolyn and the ball got rolling 🙂 meeting Surgeon for a couple of consultations made me certain I wanted it and I would be in great hands. The day of the surgery I was nervous but having such a great support team from the nurses and care team was a massive relaxation. And the aftercare is amazing. They check in with you every other day and I could contact them if needed for anything. I could name so many great people that helped me throughout my journey but my surgeon was amazing with what he does. And Carolyn was and still is the best person to organise and help me with everything throughout.

Expert Plastic Surgeons
Centre for Surgery work with some of the most renowned plastic surgeons in the United Kingdom. All our our surgeons have years of experience in all types of aesthetic breast surgery. Our surgeons provide the safest and most natural looking breast enlargement procedures in the UK.
Our surgeons are full members of:
Can a breast augmentation be performed at the same as a breast lift?Yes. If you have a lot of breast sagging and also want to increase volume then a breast lift combined with a breast enlargement is ideal. There can be slightly higher risks when performing a combined procedure although our surgeons have many years of experience in performing combined procedures. Sometimes our surgeons may recommend performing two separate procedures and in many cases may recommend a single larger combined procedure if you don't wish to go too big.
How long does breast enlargement take to perform?A breast enlargement procedure takes 1 to 2 hours to perform. Most of our patients return to work after approximately 5 days depending on the nature of your work. It may sensible initially to start with light duties and build up slowly, preferably on a part-time basis.
How soon can I start exercise after breast enlargement surgery?Our patients can begin gentle exercises after 2-3 days after the procedure. It is recommended to start slowly and build up gradually. Patients should avoid the lifting of heavy weights for at least 4-6 weeks to ensure good healing.
What is the most common incision type for breast enlargement surgery?All our surgeons use the gold standard inframammary incision which is expertly placed in the natural fold of the breast. Although this incision leaves a small scar, it is very well concealed in the lower breast fold and allows the surgeon the very best view of the inside of the breast during surgery. Having the best view means that the breast implants can be very accurately placed to create the most aesthetically appealing look. Our surgeons also use the Keller funnel as standard. The Keller funnel is the most advanced technique of inserting breast implants and allows for extremely small inframammary incisions.
Is it true that breast implants need to be replaced every 10 years?Older generation implants used to be replaced every 10 years. Our surgeons use only the most advanced fifth generation CE approved silicone implants so this is no longer the case. If there is no damage or rupture to the implants and you are happy with how the implants look over time then there is no need for them to be replaced. Our surgeons do recommend having an MRI scan every 3 years to check the integrity of the implants for optimal peace of mind for you.
Can I still have breast cancer screening with mammograms?Yes. It is still possible to have a mammogram after having had breast implants. Radiologists have now become very expert in assessing the x-rays of patients with breast implants.
How long does it take for me to be fully healed after breast enlargement surgery?The small scars after breast enlargement are more visible for the first few months before settling down. Initially scars may appear reddish and raised and with time, these become flatter and paler in colour. Our surgeons may recommend silicone gel therapy after about 6 weeks to improve the appearance of the scars even further. It often takes up to a full year for scars to become fully mature. Our surgeons are experts in optimising the appearance of scars and may recommend special brown tape to cover the incision lines in the weeks after your surgery for improved scar aesthetics.
What To Expect
When you have a consultation with your surgeon, a number of measurements are taken of your breast dimensions and an assessment will be made of the nipple-areola position and the soft tissue quality. Your surgeon has access to the full range of breast implant options including round, shaped, smooth or textured implants and the most appropriate choice will be made based on your preferences. The surgeon will also give information on the location of the incision for placement of implants and also whether the implants are to be placed above or below the muscle.
High-resolution photos will be taken and your surgeon may also use computer digital imaging. Your surgeon will take time to discuss the important risks and potential complications of breast augmentation surgery and what you can expect in the postoperative period.
The surgeon will also take a full medical history which includes previous operations, current list of medicines taken and any potential allergies. This information will be used to decide on your fitness for the breast implant procedure. If you are deemed to be a suitable candidate for surgery then we would recommend to spend a period of time to reflect on all the information given. We always recommend a minimum of a 2 week cool off period for to weigh up your options.
All our prospective patients are more than welcome to have as many follow-up consultations after their initial consultation to make sure you are fully empowered with all the information to make an informed decision for proceeding with breast enlargement surgery at Centre for Surgery.
Before your procedure
Once you have decided that breast augmentation is right for you, our preoperative assessment team will be in contact to prepare you for surgery.
The following are recommended actions to take:
- For 6 weeks beforehand, it is highly recommended to stop smoking as active smoking is associated with a number of risks including delayed wound healing which could result in wound infection and a possible need to have the implants removed.
- You should also avoid aspirin and all medicines containing aspirin for at least one week prior to the procedure.
- For 6 hours before the breast augmentation procedure, you should refrain from eating any food or any type of drink apart from sips of clear fluid (water and tea/coffee without added milk) which is allowed for up to 2 hours before the procedure.
On the day of your procedure
Please make sure to arrive for your procedure at the booked time to avoid delays. A member of our nursing team will formally admit you for the procedure and will carry out a number of tasks including checking your vital signs and getting you changed into clinic wear. The anaesthetist will then assess you to make sure you are fit for anaesthetic and will also prescribe a number of premedications to optimise your recovery after the procedure. You will then be seen by your surgeon who will confirm the procedure to undertaken and you will sign the informed consent form. Skin marking and photos may be taken at this point.
The breast augmentation procedure is a very commonly performed procedure at Centre for Surgery and is carried out under TIVA general anaesthesia. The procedure takes approximately 90 minutes to perform. The incision is most commonly placed beneath the breast in the inframammary fold and gives the best looking scar. There are other options including periareolar (around the nipple) and transaxillary (in the armpit) but these are very rarely performed in the UK. The breast implants are inserted using a Keller funnel 'no touch' technique under the muscle or over the muscle depending on soft tissue coverage and breast size and shape. The small incision are between 3-5cm in length and closed using dissolvable sutures so there is no need to have them removed at a separate appointment.
Once you have woken up from the anaesthetic, our nurses will closely monitor you for 1-3 hours afterwards to make sure you make a full recovery. Once you are assessed as fit for discharge, you will require a responsible adult escort to take you home in a car or taxi and to look after you for at least the first 24 hours after surgery.
After your procedure
After your procedure, our dedicated postoperative support team are available round the clock to answer any questions or concerns you may have. Our team will call you regularly for the first 2 weeks after your procedure to make sure your pain levels are well controlled and your healing is progressing as normal.
Any discomfort after breast augmentation surgery usually settles down after 3-4 days after the procedure and the vast bulk of our patients are very comfortable by the end of week 1. Your doctor may recommend a period of approximately one week off work. You should minimise any excessive movements of your arms for the first 2 weeks after surgery,
You will be required to wear a well supporting surgical bra for a full 6 weeks to make sure healing is optimal and scars healing with best results. Exercise involving the upper body should be stopped for a full 6 weeks to avoid any potential implant rotation.
You will attend for a postoperative check up with one of our nursing team at 7-10 days to review your surgical wound sites and ensure proper healing is taking place. Recommendations on treatments for scar healing may be given for optimal cosmesis. At 6 weeks you will see your surgeon for a comprehensive review and make sure your results are in line with your expectations.
