Breast Augmentation

Breast Augmentation

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.


Breast augmentation (also known as a boob job or breast implants) is the UK’s most popular cosmetic surgery procedure for women. Breast enlargement involves the surgical addition of implants to improve the shape, size, fuller appearance, or more symmetrical look of your breasts.

We have been treating patients for over 30 years, looking after thousands of women each year and with our 5 star TrustPilot rating you know you are in safe hands. We have the most comprehensive 3 year breast cover for breast augmentation so your journey to a great shape starts here with a free consultation with our specialised breast surgeons.

At The Private Clinic breast augmentation is performed by some of the UK’s top consultant plastic surgeons who have decades of experience. Come and meet our specialised breast surgeons in one of our clinics: London, Birmingham, Manchester, Leeds, Glasgow, Princes Risborough (Bucks), Northampton and Bristol.

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.


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.

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.

CKM, Bucks

My experience with Mr Adrian Richards and all of the staff at the Princes Risborough clinic were nothing short of outstanding. I did a lot of research on breast augmentation, clinics and surgeons and I couldn’t have made a better choice. From the initial consultation I was immediately made at ease, right up to my surgery and post-surgery appointments. I felt that I was really listened to and incredibly well informed. The pre-op nurse was absolutely lovely, as were all the staff on my surgery day. Dr Richards is an outstanding surgery and my results far exceeded my expectations.

I would like to make a special mention towards Sinead, the nurse at the Princes Risborough clinic. She was so nice and supportive throughout the whole experience and I felt like she genuinely cared about me.

At 32 years old, my dreams of going from a 34AA to a 34D have been made a reality and I couldn’t be happier.

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



‘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!”
