Breast Augmentation Surgery
Boob job And Breast Enlargement Surgery In Tunbridge wells, Kent
BREAST ENLARGEMENT SURGERY - THE PROCEDUREA breast augmentation (breast enlargement; boob job; breast enhancement) is normally performed using silicone implants by the Consultant Plastic Surgeons at Purity Bridge. Breast implants come in a variety of styles and surfaces, with shapes including round or anatomical (shaped, or teardrop) shapes and textured or smooth surfaces (for round only). The right implant for you must be decided after a thorough consultation with your Purity Bridge Consultant Plastic Surgeon, listening to your aims; but also after a careful clinical examination to determine the "best fit" implant for your breast. There is no “perfect” implant, and because of the wide variety of differences in breasts, in terms of their shape, their age, their history (such as past breast feeding) there is no “one size fits all” breast implant. In addition, various risk factors with the surgery and the implants themselves must be taken into account and discussed with you, to determine the right choice for you. There is often a misconception that different shaped implants will always give a consistent result - frequently we hear that anatomical implants will “always” look natural and round implants will always look more augmented. In reality, if we plan the right implant for you, after thorough discussion and careful clinical examination, we will get the best implant to give you the look you are hoping for. In many cases, a round implant can provide a very natural looking result, and sometimes, if not chosen appropriately, an anatomical implant can look very augmented.
Who carries out this treatment?
BOOB JOB – WHAT DOES IT INVOLVE?
A breast augmentation is usually performed under general anaesthetic (with you asleep) either as a day case procedure or with an overnight stay. The scar is most commonly placed near the breast crease, and during surgery, a “pocket” is created either under or over the muscle (the pectoralis major) that lies beneath the breast. This decision is determined during your pre-operative consultation.
BREAST ENLARGEMENT SURGERY – WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
Modern breast enlargement surgery using the latest silicone implants is a safe, reliable and predictable procedure. Whilst the results are immediate, your results continue to improve for the first 3-6 months after surgery.

More about breast augmentation
The surgery takes between 45 and 75 minutes, depending on the situation.
You will feel tight and somewhat uncomfortable for around a week after surgery. Women who have had children often describe the tightness as being similar to the feeling they had when their milk came in. The recovery is quick, and you should be able to go back to sedentary work 1-week after surgery.
You should be able to drive 1 week after surgery, but strenuous exercise should be avoided for 6-weeks.
Breast enlargement is a very successful procedure with a high patient satisfaction rate. The key is a comprehensive pre-operative journey to ensure you and your Purity Bridge surgeon are in agreement with the choice of implant, and that you fully understand the whole process.
Like any operation, there are risks that are associated with breast enlargement surgery and long term complications that might occur.
Early risks include bleeding (which might require a return to the operating theatre); infection (which is fortunately rare); asymmetry (although everyone's breasts have differences between them pre-operatively); numbness around the scar; nipple sensitivity and delayed wound healing.
In the long term, there may be hardening of the natural scar tissue that forms around the implant, known as capsular contracture or implant failure (rupture). Both of these might require further surgery (at further cost) to replace the implants and deal with any problematic scar tissue.
