Breast Enlargement Surgery


In summary

I perform breast augmentation regularly in my practice using the implants manufactured by Mentor (information on this company can be found on the download sheet). It is a world-renowned company for the safety and construction of their implants. I use implants that have a texture to their surface as this has been shown to help reduce the incidence of a tight band of tissue, called capsular contracture, forming around them. I use a micro-textured implant but can discuss smooth implants with you. Please see the paragraph about




please click the link below to open statement


Most are textured (not Smooth) on their surface, they contain a cohesive silicone gel (gummy bear) and they come in round and shaped.

The round and shaped can be with low to high profile as seen on the side view.

All this will be discussed with you and your chest wall/ breast will be measured your to see which implant suits you the best.


You may have heard of a new condition that has been mentioned in the press. This is a recent discovery called ALCL. It is one of the LYMPHOMAs in the breast.

It has an incidence worldwide of between 1:25,000 to 1: 30,000 women and is found associated with breast implants, especially textured. in the UK the incidence is 1:28,000.

The USA and UK have put out an advice sheet (March 2017) that women undergoing breast augmentation should be made aware of this condition.

It usually occurs 8-10 years after the implants have been put in and present with breast swelling, usually unilateral.

The treatment is varied but mostly consists of an investigation into the swelling and If positive for ALCL then treatments will be discussed.
Allergan has printed a very informative sheet readily available on this topic.

Many of the hospitals in which I work have operation packages in place and allow for a nights stay in the package cost.

These very competitive packages mean that you do not have to worry about any other cost from the time of your admission to discharge and includes a dressing clinic appointment and one more clinic appointment with me.

Be assured that you will only see me in the clinic and your operation will be carried out by me. There is no nurse run assessment in my clinics.

Please contact my secretary or the hospital of your choice for a discussion about Breast enlargement and they will be very happy to let you know about all your care.

The above image shows the most common implants I use.


This is a topic that has been put in the press and Social media, especially Facebook. It is a currently unknown, or unclassified illness that has been and is being investigated. The first research was in the early 1990s in the USA but still, there is no conclusive evidence that breast implants are related to general inflammatory illnesses, such as Arthritis, or can have an effect on cognitive abilities such as memory or tiredness.

This condition is about ALL breast implants that have silicone whether smooth surface or textured. It is also worth noting that all breast implants have a silicone outer cover even if they have saltwater inside them.

I will keep this area updated as and when evidence presents itself otherwise you can read about some of the debates on research web pages such as centre4research.

The Chest Wall and breast

The Pectorals Muscle attaches to the side of the breast bone, hence if the breast bone is wide the pec muscle will be wide apart. The breast sits on top of the Pectoralis muscle, images to right hand side.

If the implant is placed under the muscle with a wide breast bone then the breasts will still remain wide apart even with an implant as the pectorals muscle cannot be taken off the breast bone all along its length, only at the bottom part.

Having the implants under the breast tissue can help bring the breasts further together but not fully.

Breast Enlargement with fat filling (lipofilling)

If you are considering a breast enlargement (augmentation) using your own fat please read on and then you may want to open and read my full information sheet that can be found at the end of this page or in the information sheet section on the homepage.
In summary
I perform breast augmentation using silicone implants and also using your own fat to increase the size of the breast. It usually needs a good quantity of fat to enhance both breasts. The fat is suctioned from the tummy,
flanks and inner thigh area, and cleaned so that it can be placed in the breast. I mainly perform this operation for breast asymmetry to enhance the smaller breast instead of using a silicone implant. If the smaller breast is about a cup size to 1.5 cup sizes smaller, then this is an ideal way to increase its size to match a breast that it no bigger than a D cup. It may require 2 or even 3 operations depending on the amount of fat needed to increase the breast. Only up to 150ml of fat can be transferred at a time to each breast. This can be performed as a day case surgery, but may require a night stay if a lot of fat is needed for the enhancement.
Many of the hospitals in which I work have operation packages in place and allow for a nights stay in the package cost.
