Breast Augmentation Surgery London

What is a breast augmentation (enlargement) operation

Breast augmentation (BBA) is an operation to enlarge the size of female breasts. It usually involves the use of an implant that is made of silicone and more rarely salt water or saline. The operation is commonly carried out as a day case under a general anaesthetic and lasts between 1- 1.5 hours. Enlargement of the breast can also be carried out by fat transfer but there are only a small percentage of patients that will be suitable for this procedure.

What are the types of breast augmentation

There are a number of factors to consider in a BBA but the most common question is about the position or plane of implant. Mr Jallali is a fully accredited Plastic Surgeon and carries out both above (subglandular) and below muscle (Dual plane) BBA. Following your assessment by Mr Jallali, you will be informed of the most appropriate technique and counseled about the potential outcome.

Should I have an anatomical (tear drop) implants

Mr Jallali will discuss the suitability for tear drop implants at your initial consultation but in general most patients have round implants

What is the recovery time for breast augmentation

This largely depends on the technique used and can be as little as a few days. However, in most cases Mr Jallali recommends at least one week off work and two weeks avoiding heavy exercise. Mr Jallali’s has developed a sophisticated wound closure technique that means patients are allowed to shower on the first postoperative day and all the stitches are dissolvable. Mr Jallali does not use a drain postoperatively. You will need to stay in a sports bra for six weeks after a BBA and will be dressing free after two weeks.

What is the cost of breast augmentation

This largely depends on the technique and the individual. The package prices (which include all fees and follow ups) range from £ 4500-5500.

What are the complications associated with breast augmentation

Most patients are worried that the operation is painful but it in fact it is very well tolerated by the majority of patients. Complications are rare in Mr Jallali’s hand but include infection, bleeding, scar, change in sensation, capsular contracture and rippling. Whilst patients are warned about these most do not develop any and the post operative recovery is generally uneventful.
