A breast augmentation (breast enlargement; boob job; breast enhancement) is normally performed using silicone implants. These come in a variety of styles and surfaces, including round or anatomical (shaped, or teardrop) shapes and textured surface or smooth (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.

Like any operation, there are risks that are associated with breast augmentation 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.
