The Problem

If you feel you have always wanted a larger breast size, or a larger breast shape, or after pregnancy, breast feeding or weight loss you feel your breasts have lost volume, shape or size, then a breast augmentation (breast enlargement) at The Private Clinic might be the procedure for you.

At your consultation your surgeon will discuss:

  • The difference between tear-drop and round implants.
  • Whether you want the breasts implants under or over the muscle.
  • The ideal breast size and shape that will best suit your frame.
  • Your expectations and aftercare.
  • Show you before and after photos to ensure your decision is the right one.

During the procedure, your breast implants will be inserted through a small incision, normally made along the natural crease of your breast. The procedure takes approximately one hour to perform. The operation is a day case procedure performed under general anaesthetic and you will be able to return home 2-3 hours after your procedure. See our breast implant journey video here.

Advantages of Breast Implants

  • Increase fullness and/or size of breasts
  • Long-lasting (implants typically last 10 to 15 years)
  • Breast asymmetry can be improved if different sizes are used
  • May improve sagging (an additional breast uplift may be needed for considerable sagging)
  • Can help increase lost volume after pregnancy, breastfeeding or weight loss
  • Feeling confident in your clothing

Recovery / Downtime

We advise that you take a week off work, but this depends on your job type, if you have children and sporting requirements.

    Comments from patients

    After many years wanting a breast augmentation I finally plucked up the courage to have a consultation at the Birmingham clinic.  I was seen by Steve who put me at ease and answered all my questions that I needed to ask. I then went to see my consultant Mr Kok who went into great detail about the procedure pointing out all the risks involved. At no point did I feel that Mr Kok was trying to push me into having the procedure and even suggested I take time to think it through and this made me feel like I could trust him. So I went ahead with it and I am really happy with the results and the clinic were there with me all the way and Steve even rang me to check I was okay in hospital the same day of the operation.
    Mr Koks team including the anaesthetist were really kind and very  professional and I would just like to say thank you to everyone.

    I recently went though with breast augmentation with Dr Adrian Richards at The Private Clinic Northampton. It was a procedure that I had longed to go ahead with for a very long time, so I did my research before getting in contact. I am currently 10 weeks post op and i couldn’t be happier. The Private Clinic were incredible throughout; I had so much support and care ever since I went for my first consultation, right until after my surgery. Adrian was fantastic and I would highly recommend him to anybody that wants to undergo cosmetic surgery. I can honestly say I trust him with anything after my surgery and I am in love with my new natural look. The nurses at the clinic were amazing, and I would especially like to thank Aggie, Vicki and Olivia for being the nicest team of people to accompany me throughout my journey. They made me feel so welcome and I will miss coming to the clinic! Thank you so much for changing my life, I am so grateful!

    Phoebe, Northampton

    I can’t thank Dr Richards and Aggie enough for what they have done. I had a breast augmentation and from day one I felt so comfortable with them. They tell you what’s right for you so you don’t make the bad/wrong decision, my surgery went perfectly and my aftercare has been fantastic!
    All the staff at the Northampton clinic are so friendly and welcoming always reassuring and so confident with answering any questions

    Ellaura, Northampton

    I had my surgery in at The Fitzroy Hospital which is where Mr Fazel mainly operates from. The staff there were lovely and the nurses were very patient focused. On the day of my surgery, Mr Fazel again confirmed my procedure, I wasn’t worried but I believe people who were feeling nervous would have been calmed down by Mr Fazel instantly before going to theatre. I placed my life in his hands with his full trust and I had no worries at all.

    Zoe, Birmingham

    My experience at the The Private Clinic in Princes Risborough was fantastic from start to finish. My nurse Sinead couldn’t have made me feel more comfortable at my first consultation and was a great help and support through my bilateral nipple reduction and follow up visits. My surgeon, Mr Adrian Richards is very professional but also kind and friendly; he made me feel at ease during my procedure, which was under local anaesthetic. I subsequently returned for a breast augmentation consultation and then a sizing visit with Sinead which was a great experience. Mr Richards and Aggie were very reassuring and comforting before and after my surgery at the hospital and Sinead was again a fantastic support during my follow up visits at the Princes Risborough clinic. Nothing would prevent me using the clinic again in the future and I am very pleased with the results of both of my surgeries and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to a friend.
