In recent news article, Chrissy Teigen has been addressing her concerns over her implants. It is reported that she is feeling conflicted about going under the knife for further breast augmentation surgery after motherhood has left her implants ‘deflated’. See article here.
Pregnancy and breastfeeding can cause changes in the size, shape and profile of breasts for patients with and without implants. Once you have finished breastfeeding the mammary glands within your breasts will shrink back to their former size however, in some cases sagging or stretched skin may become apparent.
We do see many patients come back to visit us once they have finished their family and are looking to restore their breasts to how they previously were before pregnancy or to just simply seeking to have them feeling perkier and more uplifted again. Patients who previously had implants before children may now be considering if to remove or replace their implants but are often fearful of the appearance of their breasts after the implants have been removed.
Chrissy Teigen’s concerns will resonate with many women who are keen to remove or replace their implants, but worry that the changes which occur over time (and potentially post-pregnancy and breastfeeding) will leave them looking worse once the implants are removed. Chrissy’s comments also mirror recent trends which have seen a rise in women seeking a more ‘natural’ approach to breast enhancement – either removing their implants altogether (as per Victoria Beckham and Pamela Anderson) or wanting to achieve an improved breast shape without using an implant at all.
At The Private Clinic, we offer the Breast Auto Augmentation procedure which is a specialised plastic surgery procedure that uses your own natural breast tissue to reshape and improve the shape of your breasts following the removal of breast implants. Unlike a standard breast uplift procedure, which only changes the position of the nipple and tightens the skin, or a normal breast augmentation which uses a breast implant to give the desired breast size and shape, The Private Clinic’s Auto-Augmentation technique uses the patients own natural breast tissue to reshape and enhance the shape of your breasts. It achieves this by relocating the breast tissue into the upper portion of the breast, to give the desired lifting and shaping effect, without the need for an implant.
“One of the main advantages of this ground-breaking procedure is that we can achieve that ‘perfect’ ratio of breast fullness without the volume or weight of an implant,” says Consultant Plastic Surgeon, Mr Adrian Richards. “For women considering implant removal, the prospect of a deflated, sagging appearance post procedure can be a significant concern, so with auto-augmentation we can maintain their breast shape, only implant-free.”

“In my opinion breast auto-augmentation might be the best solution for Chrissy Teigan. She, like many women had breast implants in her 20’s. Following children her body shape has changed and she has decided to have her implants removed but is worried how her bust might look after her implants are removed.
Our technique of implant removal and auto augmentation would remodel her breast and use her own tissue in place of her implants. For many women this a great solution if they decide to have their implants removed and are keen to maintain optiumum breast shape, contour and profile.” – Consultant Plastic Surgeon, Mr Adrian Richards.
