Our Advice

Our advice on what to consider when deciding to have a breast enlargement (boob job) procedure:

1. When choosing a clinic, you should always do your research, and only go to an established, reputable clinic.

Established in 1983, The Private Clinic has been in the cosmetic surgery industry for over 30 years. You can rest assured that we will be here to answer all of your questions, address any of your concerns,  carry out routine follow-ups after your procedure and give you peace of mind that you have come to the right pace.

2. When choosing a surgeon, make sure you know who you’ll be seeing; their expertise, qualifications and patient satisfaction rate are just some of the important factors to take into consideration. Ensure that your procedure and follow-ups will be carried out by the same plastic surgeon.

At The Private Clinic, we only source the most experienced and specialised surgeons. Find out more about our medical team here.

3. Price should never be the deciding factor when choosing where to have your treatment. Safety should be your number one priority and, more importantly, that of your surgeon. You should always feel confident that they will look after you – not only before, but also after your procedure.

Our top priorities have always been, and continue to be, your safety and your satisfaction.

4. When it sounds too good to be true, it often is. Always find out what implants are going to be used and what your clinic’s reputation is.

The Problem

You might find that your breasts aren’t a size you feel comfortable with, or that there’s a discrepancy in their shape or appearance. Pregnancy, breast feeding and weight loss can leave the breasts lacking in volume, shape or size, or you might be generally unhappy with their appearance.


The Procedure

Your surgeon will discuss your ideal breast size and shape fully during consultation to find the best way to achieve the outcome that suits you. You will talk about the difference between tear-drop and round implants, whether you want the breasts implants under or over the muscle, and the size that will best suit your frame and expectations. We find that patients’ biggest worry is often finding the correct size so we spend as long as you need prior to surgery going over your options and showing you similar 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 and the length of time you’ll remain after will depend on your individual case. We endeavour to allow as many patients as possible to be day cases under sedation rather than general anaesthetic, meaning you can return home in the evening. However, some procedures will require an overnight stay in hospital to monitor your progress. Your surgeon will discuss this fully with you depending on the best option for you and your body.

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 will vary depending on the nature of your occupation. We suggest you use the week after your procedure to rest, meaning you may have to arrange for childcare or help around the house, depending on your lifestyle.

Your Cosmetic Surgeon will discuss your daily activities with you and will advise you on when to gradually introduce them back into your lifestyle.

‘Absolutely brilliant. I can’t thank you enough. Life transforming’ *


Manchester - March 2016

‘The staff at reception have been great thus far.  They are a pleasure and always very welcoming!  Likewise, the advisor was extremely patient and helped me every step of the way’


“I think this is the most natural look and I’m so happy. It’s almost weird that they are soft and not hard anymore. It feels great.  I would like to thank you for all you’ve done for me. I felt like I don’t have to worry at all because you took care of everything.

Mr Van Niekerk did a great job! He’s amazing. I’m so lucky I met him. Fantastic surgeon and great person.  The whole experience at the clinic was exactly what I expected.   My lovely and professional nurse who took care of me pre and post operation.

I was quite nervous waiting for the operation but my anaesthesiologist made me feel comfortable and not to worry at all.   The whole “surgery crew”:) was great and all I can do is just to say a big THANK YOU!”

M.E, London - July 2016
