Breast Augmentation is an operation that enlarges the size of your breasts. One of our most popular procedures, our breast augmentation in Glasgow is most commonly done using silicone implants, though we also offer other breast augmentation techniques, here at Elanic.
Why Choose Elanic for Your Breast Augmentation?
Elanic is one of the only clinics in Glasgow whose experienced practitioners can perform a breast augmentation procedure in just one day, utilizing our state-of-the-art day surgery unit and local anaesthetic with sedation. This eliminates your need for an overnight stay in the hospital and allows you to have your surgery and be home recovering the same day. For more complex procedures, surgery can also be carried out under general anaesthesia at one of our private, partnership hospitals.
If you’re interested in learning more about breast augmentation, our staff is here and ready to help you set up your consultation. Simply reach out to our Glasgow call centre and schedule your appointment at the Elanic location most convenient for you.
Should I Consider Breast Augmentation in Glasgow?
As part of your consultation, your surgeon will carry out a detailed examination of your physical characteristics, recommending the surgical technique and implant size that will be best for you and your personal cosmetic goals.
You will most likely benefit from a breast augmentation if:
- You are self-conscious about the size of your breasts
- Your breasts have become smaller and less shapely because of pregnancy or after losing weight
- You have one breast that is notably smaller than the other (asymmetry)
Elanic in Glasgow is Scotland’s leading breast augmentation clinic and your breast enlargement surgery will be carried out by highly experienced consultant plastic surgeons.
What is the Cost of Breast Augmentation?
The cost of breast augmentation in Glasgow varies depending on which type of breast augmentation is performed, whether by fat transfer or implants. Which type of implants are used and the complexity of the procedure required also factor into the cost. Breast augmentation prices start at £5495. You will know the exact price of your procedure after your consultation, once the details of your surgical plan are determined.
What's Involved in a Breast Augmentation?
Breast enlargement in Glasgow is a popular choice among women who desire larger breasts, those who wish to correct a size discrepancy between the breasts, or those interested in replacing breast tissue lost after pregnancy or weight loss. Breast enlargement surgery (also known as breast augmentation) can be achieved using silicone breast implants or through the injection of a patient's own fat.
In some cases, implants can also be used after a mastectomy to restore the breast. We use both round and teardrop-shaped breast implants, depending on the type of look you want from your breast augmentation. Your surgeon will discuss your options with you and will recommend the most appropriate type and size for your physique.
At Elanic we can offer breast enlargement at our purpose-built clinic in the centre of Glasgow on a day case surgery basis. Under sedation and local anaesthetic, you can have your procedure in Elanic and be home recovering in your own bed on the very same day.

High-Quality Breast Implants by Johnson & Johnson
At Elanic we only use Mentor breast implants by Johnson and Johnson®. From such a respected household name, you can expect the finest quality implants available. Due to the quality of Mentor breast implants, we are able to offer one of the most comprehensive warranty packages available and unlike most clinics, we are crystal clear on what we do cover, and what we don’t. Every breast augmentation procedure is covered by the following warranties:
One year of coverage against any complications including infection, implant rupture, malposition, and seroma—we will conduct your surgery for free in the event of any of these problems in the first year after surgery.
Three years of coverage against capsular contracture. We will conduct your exchange of implants for free in the event that you suffer Grade III or Grade IV capsular contracture in the first three years after your surgery.
Ten years of coverage against capsular contracture. Mentor will provide free implants if you experience Grade III or IV capsular contracture within 10 years of your surgery. Surgical costs will be met by the patient. (A contribution of 1000 euros and free breast implants are provided by Johnson and Johnson as part of this warranty.)
Mentor Patientcare Promise Lifetime
This limited warranty means that at any stage if you suffer an implant rupture, then Mentor will provide you with a replacement set of breast implants, but not pay for the procedure.
These warranties are operated by Johnson and Johnson Ltd, are outwith the control of Elanic Ltd, and are subject to change. These warranties are international and can be used with any provider. Your warranties are covered both by Elanic Ltd and by your surgeon, therefore if Elanic was ever to cease trading your cover will still exist with your surgeon.
3D Imaging Technolgy by Vectra
Vectra is a 3D imaging camera system that allows your own body to be captured in 3D and then visualised on screen. It is then possible to select implants from Mentor and to see how your results might look with a given set of implants. Not only can you choose what size will best suit your proportions and body type, but you can also narrow down your choices in terms of shape, profile, and position.
You will be able to see how you will look in different types of clothes, with different sizes of implants. We believe that Vectra is a fantastic educational tool, allowing clients to take the guesswork out of choosing their implant size. We believe this is an essential part of your consultation and as such, we include a Vectra scan free of charge to all our breast augmentation clients.

Glasgow Breast Augmentation Results
Although the effects of your breast augmentation will likely be visible immediately after the surgery, the final results will appear gradually. In the weeks and months following your procedure, the swelling and bruising will subside, and your breast implants will settle into place. Typically, it takes around three to four months before you can see the complete effects of the breast augmentation procedure. However, it may take approximately six to nine months for your incision scars to fade.
If you maintain a healthy lifestyle and a stable weight, your breast augmentation results can last for at least 10 to 20 years before your implants need to be replaced.
Do breast implants sag over time?
Breast implants will sag over time as the breast tissue ages. Expect this change to happen gradually over the course of about ten years. Smaller implants tend to stay more elevated, while larger implants sag more quickly.
Can your body reject breast implants years later?
Your body may develop breast implant illness, reject breast implants or form capsular contracture years after your breast implants are inserted.
Do breast implants cause weight gain?
It is common to gain about five to ten pounds after breast implant surgery. This is due to the implants themselves, fluid retention, or the use of prescription medications. Your weight should return to normal as your swelling subsides.
Can breasts get bigger after implants?
Breasts can change over time and may grow even if you don’t gain weight. As the swelling resolves and your breast tissue softens up, the implants will settle into a softer and rounder position, which causes them to look larger and closer together.
Can I lift my arms after breast surgery?
Do not lift your arms above your shoulders for one to two weeks after surgery. Do not lift anything that weighs over five pounds.
