Breast Enlargement: Frequently Asked Questions

What is breast enlargement surgery?

Breast enlargement surgery – also referred to as breast augmentation or a ‘boob job’ – is a surgical procedure which is undertaken in order to restore the volume and shape of the breasts. Breast enlargement surgery is a cosmetic procedure, which typically uses implants to enhance the size of the breasts – these implants are normally either saline or silicone.

Breast enlargement surgery is one of the most popular procedures for women which is offered by Elena at her Breast Aesthetic Clinic, and the treatment is known to have the ability to improve the confidence of women as a result of their changed feeling about their own appearance. It is this positive impact on both the mind and the body which makes breast enlargement surgery a procedure which is in demand.

Is breast enlargement surgery for me?

Breast implants restore breast volume which can be lost after weight reduction to achieve a more rounded breast shape and improves breast size asymmetry.

There are a number of reasons why breast enlargement surgery is chosen. These include; dissatisfaction with breast size and shape, a discrepancy between the size of breasts, changes in breast size or firmness, and clothes becoming ill-fitting.

How is breast enlargement surgery performed?

A variety of breast implants can be used for breast enlargement surgery, including saline implants, structured implants, silicone implants and gummy bear implants. Your consultant can offer advice on the best choice for you, based on your personal objectives and specific breast type.

Whether your implant is inserted over or under your pectoral muscle is a choice which will be made after consultation with the surgeon, allowing you to discuss the benefits and preferable method. Elena is available to discuss the various surgical options outlined above before you come to a joint agreement about which one best suits your needs.

Breast enlargement surgery is a procedure which typically takes from one to two hours.

After undergoing anaesthesia, breast enlargement surgery involves incisions in a pre-determined location which aims to minimise visible scarring. The breast implant is inserted into a ‘pocket’ situated over or under the pectoral muscle. The incisions are closed using surgical tape, skin adhesive or sutures.

Typically patients will not eat or drink for a window of six hours prior to surgery. Before entering the operating room, patients will meet with an anaesthetist to discuss their chosen form of anaesthesia.

What are the risks of breast enlargement surgery?

Breast enlargement surgery requires the signed consent of the patient. Among the potential risks of breast enlargement surgery are breast sensation changes, tight scar tissue forming and pain following surgery. In some circumstances, there is also a possibility of revision surgery being needed.

Soreness, as well as swelling or bruising, can be felt in the nipple region for several weeks. Rupture or deflation is another complication with a low rate of occurrence, and it should be noted by prospective breast enlargement surgery patients that breast implants are reported to have caused interference with mammography screening tests.

Breast enlargement surgery recovery time

Breast enlargement surgery patients can prepare well for their recovery period by stocking up on certain items in their home, including: ice cubes; loose and comfortable clothing; cream and ointment which is recommended for helping the healing of incision sites; and magazines and movies to read and watch while movement is limited.

Breast enlargement surgery normally requires an overnight hospital stay. Following the procedure, the resumption of daily activities can typically be made after one to two weeks, but it can be several months before full exercise can begin again.

It is normal for your surgeon to give you a prescription which can help control any post-operation pain, and small drainage tubes might be fitted in order to deal with a build-up of fluid or blood. If you do have a drainage tube fitted, you will return to have this removed at a later date, as well as your gauze bandage.

The Breastclinik is valued for its consultative approach and cutting-edge techniques, offering the advantages of an expert female consultant with an empathetic attitude.

Will breast enlargement surgery impair my ability to breastfeed?

If this is a concern, you will have the opportunity to discuss the topic with Elena in detail before reaching any decision about the suitability of breast enlargement surgery for you. Breast implants are also proven not to affect breast milk in any way.

Advice On Breast Implants

Since December 2018, many regulatory bodies around the World have issued statements regarding their own position and some have limited the distribution of other textured devices. The advice does vary from country to country because the research data available is limited and not conclusive. None have called for the precautionary removal or replacement of textured devices that are already inside patients’ breasts.

Breast implants however are not lifelong devices and in general will need removal or replacement at some point. In an effort to have more robust data about both conditions, the Breast and Cosmetic Implant register (BCIR) collects breast implant data for patients in England and Scotland. The MHRA continues to collect and analyse UK information through a reporting system. It also has links with up to date information from international public health organisations. The most recent advice from MHRA on BIA-ALCL was updated on the 4th April 2019.

    Patient at Ridgeway BMI Swindon
  • I can't recommend Elena enough. Elena was wonderful from the beginning completely understanding made me feel so comfortable she understood what it was I wanted to be done and why. Not long after my consultation, I had the surgery done a full tummy tuck, breast augmentation and some lipo and it was truly the best thing I have ever done. Elena has done an amazing job I only ever dreamed I could look like this after looking the way I did. Elena has been wonderful throughout the care before, during and after

    Patient at Queen Victoria Hospital
  • My first meeting with Miss Prousskaia was great. The process from start to finish was made simple & everything was arranged to suit me. If I had any concerns, worries or questions all I had to do was send an email to Miss Prousskaia & she would get back to me even if she was in surgery at the time. Miss Prousskaia has changed not only my body for the better but my life too & also my kids lives. Miss Prousskaia for me has made my dreams a reality. I will always be grateful for her work but also her care & understanding, she is a very talented & special lady.

  • What a sweetie Elena is. She put me totally at ease during my consultation explaining everything in detail and discussed my expectations. The results are far better than I could have hoped for. I have a waist for the first time and I cannot stop smiling. It's given me so much confidence, I wish I'd done it sooner. Elena is a remarkable lady, who I cannot thank enough.

    Patient at The Mcindoe Centre
  • My daughter was born with a severe congenital deformity called tuberous breasts. Elena is so professional, warm and friendly. She took her time and explained exactly how she could correct her breasts. The surgery has been so successful, my daughter's breasts are absolutely perfect and natural looking. The scarring resulting from surgery is so minimal, smooth and neat, we are astounded and Elena is also so pleased. My daughter's personality has completely transformed. She is now so happy, vivacious and confident. I cannot praise or recommend Elena enough.

    Patient at Queen Victoria Hospital
  • First, l would like to thank Elena, it was a pleasure to meet her she is so kind and understanding, After years of being so uncomfortable and having constant pain in my shoulders from having large breast. In October of this year, I had a breast reduction and uplift surgery. The difference it has made is amazing I didn’t realise it could make such a difference I now have more confidence in social situations which pre-surgery I would avoid. The pain in my shoulders has gone and I feel great. I would also like to empathise that there is no pain after surgery just a little discomfort. I would recommend Elena to anyone thinking of having surgery. She’s the best . Thank you once’s again.

    Male Patient Spire Bristol
  • Firstly, I would like to say that I would highly recommend Elena to anyone considering a breast augmentation. Elena was the second plastic surgeon I had a consultation with for a breast enlargement operation, recommended to me by a friend who had recently undergone surgery with her and from the moment I picked up the phone to book my first consultation with her the whole process was flawless. I had quite a difficult case with very little under boob but Elena managed to work her magic and gave me the size and look that I have always wanted even with this tricky starting point. I wish I had done this sooner, the difference is truly life changing

    Patient Bath BMI Hospital
  • Ever since I became a teenager and developed breasts, I have always considered a breast augmentation. I had researched the procedure, surgeons and practices for over 20 years but it wasn't until last year that I felt confident enough to go ahead. Elena was the first (and only) surgeon that I had a consultation with. I was blown away with her extensive experience & dedication to helping people.   I am now 2 months on from my procedure and the end results are unbelievable! I don't think I really prepared myself for how fantastic my boobs could look! I feel sexy, confident and I am just so ridiculous happy with my new breasts. I am now just awaiting summer to show them off!
