Breast enlargement sometimes also known as a 'boob job' is an operation to enlarge, lift or reduce the size of your breast, all of these procedures can be carried out by our specialist breast surgeons based in our Manchester clinic.
Breast enlargement involves implants being inserted into pockets that are made behind the breasts, this results in your breasts being larger (if desired) and a better shape.
Is a Breast Enlargement Right For You?
Patients to Elanic choose this option for many different reasons including:
- to enlarge breast size
- to amend uneven breasts
- to balance your overall body shape
- and for certain medical conditions such as tubular breasts
There are several benefits from investing in a breast enlargement including increased overall confidence in your appearance;
- allows you to wear clothing you've previously not felt comfortable in
- feeling more feminine
- bringing your breasts into proportion with the rest of the body
- restoring volume that could have been lost as a result of breastfeeding or substantial weight loss (a breast lift may also be required)
Your reason for having a breast enlargement is personal to you and at Elanic we respect this and will discuss your individual circumstance with you at the consultation with the surgeon. At the consultation, your surgeon will also discuss implant, size, type, and placement. Elanic has access to top of the art 3D body imaging software which allows you to see what your result could look like this helps the process of finding the perfect implant for you. Elanic uses quality Mentor implants from Johnson & Johnson a worldwide leader in the production of breast implant manufacturing. The implants are available in different shapes and profiles for you to choose from depending on your personal situation and desired outcome, your surgeon will advise you on what implant and positioning are best.
At Elanic we perform breast enlargement as a day case surgery under sedation and local anesthetic, the procedure will take between one and two hours. This means you will be back recovering in your own home with 24/7 support provided by the dedicated nursing staff. Post-procedure you should arrange for someone to pick you up and stay with you up to 24 hours after your operation. After your procedure you will have to wear a compression garment for a period of time to aid your recovery and provide a good result from your surgery, this will be discussed with your patient coordinator.
As a rule, we would recommend that you take two weeks off from work and avoid any strenuous lifting exercise for at least six weeks post-surgery. Please bear in mind that everyone heals differently and you should take your recovery at your own pace. You will have some localised pain and swelling post-surgery, you will be provided with adequate pain relief and advice from your nurse. you will be seen by your surgeon one-week post-surgery for review.
After two weeks the initial bruising and swelling will be reduced and this will continue for the following weeks. Six to nine mosts after your surgery your scar will fade, the implants will have settled into position and you will see your final result.
Elanic offers finance options through our finance partner if you wish to finance and spread the cost of part or all of your surgery. Your coordinator will guide you through this process.
