The breast enlargement operation is performed under a general anaesthetic and usually takes about 60 - 90 minutes. There is a one-night stay in the hospital.
The breast implant will be placed through a cut on the crease under your breast (inframammary fold).
Mr Sawyer will usually want to place the breast implant directly behind your breast to give the most natural result. However, if you do not have enough breast skin and tissue to cover the implant, Adam may recommend placing your breast implant behind the pectoral muscle that is behind your breast. This prevents the outline of the implants from being noticeable.
Usually, a drain (tube) is used in the pocket to drain away fluid that can sometimes collect. These drains are usually removed on the day of discharge. The cut is then closed with dissolvable stitches, leaving the drain in place.
To give your new breasts support, we will fit you with a supportive bra at the end of the operation.
