Breast Augmentation - Implants

Breast augmentation is the medical term given to enlarge the breasts using an implant.

There is a great deal of natural variation in women’s breasts. Aside from genetics and body shape, breasts can alter in shape and droop with age. They can also be affected by breastfeeding and weightloss. Some women also have underdeveloped small breasts or one breast much bigger than the other.

A breast augmentation can address all these issues, improve body shape and help inspire body confidence. In the case of women who are self conscious about their small breasts, it can give them a new found feminity.

Mr Chana is one of the UK's leading plastic surgeons in breast procedures. Highly experienced and skilled, he is known for his personable manner and the quality of aftercare he offers.

Mr Chana only uses breast implants made of silicone. They tend to look and feel more natural than implants filled with saline. Silicone implants have an outer silicone shell and an inner silicone compartment, containing a cohesive gel substance which greatly limits the chance of the implant leaking. The implants also have a textured surface which helps reduce the risk of capsular contracture occurring.

Breast implants usually last about 10 years.
