Breast enlargement or ‘boob jobs’ are one of the most commonly carried out cosmetic surgeries in the UK. Whether you want to change the size or shape or your breasts, Zestige can provide a tailored service to meet your individual needs.
In most of the cases the implants are placed in between the mammal gland and the muscle, only in a few situations like lack of enough breast tissue to cover the implants, the implants go under the muscle, this is to offer some coverage and disguise better the implants.
Breast augmentation does not interfere with breast-feeding and in most cases does not interfere with nipple sensation. It should not interfere with the diagnosis or treatment of any future breast disease, and there is no relation with silicone implants and breast cancer.
The operation involves the insertion of a breast prosthesis which consists of soft or cohesive gel, silicone contained in a silicone bag. The implants are placed either behind or in front of the pectoralis major muscle which lies under the breast itself.
Most women’s breasts are asymmetrical and we do our best to correct different degrees of asymmetries, sometimes using different implants sizes, but sometimes this cannot be completely corrected by the surgery.
The implants are placed using a small incision in the sub-mammary crease under the breast, this offers the easiest and safest access for the surgery.
The areola access is not advisable, this is because chances are to produce various degrees of nipple loss sensation, inconspicuous scars and renders a much more difficult procedure, by forcing the surgeon to cross the whole mammal gland to reach the sub-glandular space, which produces much more trauma and bleeding.
The surgery itself takes about 1 hour, and is mostly performed under general anesthesia. Your surgeon will clarify any other question you might have.
Breast surgery is carried out under general anaesthetic. Whilst you are under anaesthesia, silicone implants are inserted into the chest wall, either above or below the pectoralis major muscle which lies below the breast tissue.
