All patients will start their breast surgical journey with a consultation with their chosen breast surgeon who will listen to your concerns with sensitivity and discretion. Your suitability for surgery will be assessed during this consultation and it is your chance to find out more information about the procedure as well as further information on your chosen surgeon and what you can expect to achieve from breast surgery.

We also offer patients Crisalix 3D sizing appointments with selected surgeons. This is a great way for patients to see how different implants or surgical techniques will look on their own body through a 3D simulation.

What are the different types of breast surgery?

Breast Augmentation / Breast Enlargement / Breast Implant Surgery

A breast augmentation is when breast implants are used to enlarge the size of the breast. There are a wide variety of implant shapes, sizes, profiles and positioning techniques to allow patients to achieve their desired appearance.

Breast Uplift / Mastopexy / Breast Lift

Sagging breasts or breast ptosis is often caused by weight loss or pregnancy. A breast uplift is designed to restore fuller-looking breasts and correcting their positioning on the body for a more uplifted appearance without the need for breast implants.

Breast Reduction / Mammoplasty

Large breasts can cause a number of issues such as pain and postural problems. A breast reduction procedure (also known as mammoplasty) is aimed at reducing the overall size, weight and volume of your breasts.

Breast Implant Removal and/or Replacement

There are a number reasons why patients may choose to remove or change their breast implants. Breast implant removal surgery will remove the breast implants from the chest and for patients who wish to replace their implants to reduce, change shape or increase, this can be performed at the same time as the removal.

Breast Auto-Augmentation

When removing breast implants, patients are often concerned about the appearance of their chest post-procedure. A breast auto augmentation is a specialised procedure that uses your own natural breast tissue to fill the pocket of which the implant used to sit and reconstruct, reshape and enhance the natural shape of your breasts with no implant.

Tuberous Breast Correction

Tuberous breasts are a condition where there is an abnormality of the breast shape. The surgical technique used to correct the appearance of Tuberous Breast Correction will depend on the severity of your tubular breasts but usually involves  a specialised procedure to release the constricted breast tissue.

Asymmetric Breast Correction

Asymmetric breasts are very common but for some women the difference in size can cause embarrassment and distress. Asymmetric breast correction is usually a combination of surgical techniques such as breast lift, reduction and implants to help improve their appearance.

Inverted Nipple Correction

Inverted nipples are often caused when there is a tightening of the nipple duct’s tissue which pulls the nipple inwards into an inverted position. Inverted nipple surgery can help correct the nipple positioning by releasing the fibres and milk ducts that are causing the nipple to retract.

Nipple Reduction

Overly large nipples can cause a great deal of discomfort and concern to both male and female patients. Nipple reduction surgery can reduce the height and/or width of the nipple to help them look more in proportion to the rest of the chest.


A breast capsulectomy or capsulotomy is a breast surgery procedure that releases or removes firm breast capsules that surround breast implants. Capsular contracture is caused by breast capsules that have become thicker than normal. In some patients, pain and discomfort can be felt following this in which case surgical intervention will take please to relieve them of this.

How long does it take to recover from breast surgery?

The amount of time required for recovery after breast surgery will depend on the individual and the type of procedure carried out. Most patients can expect to return to work within 1-2 weeks and will need to avoid exercise for 6 weeks.

Do breast implants have to be replaced?

The average lifespan of a breast implant according to most manufacturers is 10 years which is why many surgeons will recommend removing or replacing your implants around this time frame.

When you attend a consultation with one of our expert breast surgeons, they will fully explain the life span of your implant and what to expect for the future.
