Breast enlargement is our most popular cosmetic procedure here at London Private Hospital. If you are unhappy with the size and shape of your breasts, the boob job could be for you. Breast size is a crucial element of feeling healthy, attractive, and confident for many women. Due to the natural ageing process, hormones, weight loss or childbirth women can loose the shape of their breasts. The breast enlargement surgery involves using silicon or saline implants to successfully restore volume in the breasts and improve the shape.

Breast augmentation is a relatively straightforward procedure. We do not take a one size fits all approach as many women have different goals and desires. It is important to have implants that fit your chest which result in a natural breast shape. The end goal is to create a natural look, without tension or irregular shapes.

The main advantage of breast enlargement surgery is fuller, firmer, and shapelier breasts. There are however additional benefits including making breasts more symmetrical, less flat and restoring self-confidence. Breast size is a very common worry for women but luckily there are now minimally invasive surgeries to increase the size, decrease the size and lift up breasts.

Weight loss or pregnancy can cause breasts to lose their shape and volume. Age and gravity can take a toll on your breasts too. Breast augmentation procedures are sometimes carried out alongside our breast uplift procedure which primarily aims to raise the angle of the breasts. Depending on your concerns, our surgeon may suggest that this procedure is more beneficial for you. Our London private hospital specialises in breast enlargement procedures and is home to the very best cosmetic surgeons.

Suitable candidates for breast enlargement include those with underdeveloped breasts and boobs that are not proportionate to the body. We treat many individuals transitioning too, creating a more feminine look.

During your consultation with our breast augmentation surgeon, we will take a full medical history and answer all of your questions. You will need to consider your desired breast shape and size along with choosing between silicon or saline implants. Breast implants can be filled with either saline or silicone, with silicone being used more frequently. We will also ensure you have realistic and safe expectations.




What will happen during BREAST SURGERY?

A breast enlargement procedure is usually very straightforward. Surgery is carried out under general anaesthetic and normally takes around 2 hours to complete at our London Private Hospital. Your surgeon will perform one of 3 incisions, depending on the type of implant and your goals. They include either under the breast, around the nipple, or close to the armpit. The size of the incision depends on the size and location of the implant. Once the implant has been successfully placed inside the breast and we are happy with the location and size, your incision will be stitched up and dressing applied. For your comfort, a support bra will also be provided. Often after surgery, the breasts will need draining of fluid and blood to avoid hardening of the implant. This is totally normal and your surgeon will discuss this with you.

After the procedure is complete, you will recover in our private facility until you are discharged. For recovery information, please read our FAQs.


Here are the top questions that patients ask us before undergoing a boob job and their answers. If you would like to learn more about breast enlargement surgery, request a consultation.

Although most patients do not experience significant scarring following breast enlargement surgery, it is important to note that scarring is possible. Normally scars will fade overtime and there are non-surgical skin resurfacing and scar management options to reduce any scars left behind.

Breast implants may not last an entire lifetime but are definitely a long term solution. It is important to note that your breasts may change shape over time due to ageing, childbirth or weight gain/loss.

The best way to select the breast implants that will be used during your breast augmentation procedure is to have a discussion with our surgeon. We will provide you with all of the correct information to enable you to make an informed choice.

There is a small possibility of a loss of sensation in the nipples. If this occurs, normally it is restored over time.

Most patients are able to breastfeed easily after breast enlargement surgery. By choosing a reputable surgeon, your chances of complications are massively reduced.

Your boob job surgery will take around 2 hours. You should allow time to recover post-surgery, to enjoy the best results.

Suitable candidates are those who are unhappy with their breast size and shape. You are also a candidate if you have asymmetrical breasts. Most who opt for breast enlargement surgery find that their breast size affects their self-confidence. Those transitioning may also be eligible for surgery.

During your initial consultation, we will provide you with all of the information you need to achieve the best results post-surgery. You will notice an immediate difference in your breast contours after surgery. You can also expect some swelling which will normally subside in the weeks after surgery. We also need to allow some time for your implants to settle and drop into their optimal position. Most patients will be able to see the best results around 3 months after surgery.

Pain after a boob job can be managed with medication. You will notice swelling after your surgery and will be sore. Of course, everybody has a different pain threshold. Please discuss your concerns with our surgeon.

After your breast enlargement procedure, you will recover in our hospital for the time suggested by your surgeon. Once we are satisfied, you will be discharged from hospital and must follow the aftercare advice provided by our team.
