Breast Enhancement Surgery

Enhance your confidence with breast enlargement surgery


If you’ve always dreamed of larger breasts or experienced volume loss due to weight changes or pregnancy, breast enlargement surgery could be right for you. Our expert, Mr D B Ghosh, a renowned breast surgeon based at The London Clinic, the Harley Street Clinic, and The Royal Free London Breast Unit, will guide you through the benefits and experience, offering friendly and expert advice and support.

What is a breast enlargement?

Breast enlargement surgery (more commonly known as a boob job or sometimes a breast enhancement) aims to give you permanently larger, fuller, and firmer breasts by inserting implants beneath the natural breast tissue, providing a size and shape that enhances your overall appearance and fits your frame comfortably.

Benefits of breast enlargement surgery

  • The benefits are numerous, including:
  • Greater self-esteem
  • Fuller breasts
  • A curvier figure
  • The freedom to wear the clothes you desire
  • Improved breast proportions for a balanced appearance.

Are you a suitable candidate?

We typically recommend breast enlargement surgery for women over 18. Other factors such as health, smoking, and weight are also a consideration. Please book an appointment with us to discuss your needs and suitability. During your consultation, Mr Ghosh will work with you to create the perfect breast enlargement treatment plan.

What happens during the procedure?

The procedure, lasting one to two hours under general anaesthetic, involves small incisions strategically placed for minimal scarring. (Mr Ghosh will discuss incision locations and potential scarring during your consultation.) Once the incisions have been made, implants will be inserted beneath the natural breast tissue before the incisions are closed up. Post-surgery, you’ll spend at least one night in hospital, wearing a post-operative bra for comfort and support. We recommend rest, pain management, and gentle stretching for optimal recovery.

Silicone vs. saline implants: the choice is yours

During your initial consultation, you’ll explore the differences between silicone and saline implants. Silicone implants offer a natural feel, maintaining shape even if ruptured. In contrast, saline implants are more cost-effective, however – whilst your body safely absorbs the saline solution – there can be noticeable deflation if rupture occurs. Mr Ghosh will guide you through the pros and cons, helping you make an informed decision unique to your needs.

Your recovery journey after breast enlargement surgery

  • One week after: Rest, avoid strenuous activities and attend a follow-up appointment to remove dressings.
  • 3-6 months after: Your scars will be healing, and you’ll experience incredible results and a return to your routine.

Understanding the risks:

Like any surgery, breast enlargement carries risks. During your initial consultation, Mr Ghosh will discuss potential risks, including capsular contracture, rupture, creases, folds, rotation, and temporary or permanent loss of nipple sensation.

How much does breast enlargement surgery cost?

Every patient is unique, and every circumstance is unique, so there is no set breast enlargement cost.

How to ensure safety and satisfaction for breast enlargement surgery

When considering breast enlargement surgery, your safety and satisfaction are top priorities. Whether you choose our clinics, or another, here are the essential things to look out for to ensure a positive and safe experience:

1. Verify clinic credentials:

Ensure the clinic is registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC). This certification guarantees adherence to high standards in providing cosmetic surgery services.

2. Beware of paid listings:

Be cautious when searching for breast enlargement surgery (or ‘boob jobs’ and ‘breast enhancement’) online, as some clinics may pay for prominent search listings. They may be near the top of the search listings, but this doesn’t make them reputable. Rely on reputable sources and independent reviews for a more accurate representation.

3. Confirm surgeon’s credentials:

Check if your surgeon is registered with the General Medical Council (GMC) and has a valid licence to practise. This ensures their legitimacy and adherence to professional standards.

4. Membership in professional associations:

Validate the surgeon’s credentials by checking their membership status with reputable organisations such as the British Association of Plastic Reconstruction and Aesthetic Surgeons (BAPRAS) or the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS). A “full member” status on the specialist register for plastic surgery is a positive indicator.

5. Face-to-face consultation:

Always schedule an in-person appointment to meet your surgeon before breast surgery. This allows you to establish a personal connection and address any concerns.

Questions to ask your surgeon:

During the consultation, enquire about:

  • Qualifications and Experience: Learn about your surgeon’s background and expertise.
  • Procedure Track Record: Ask how many breast enlargement operations they have performed, specifically focusing on their experience with similar cases.
  • Complication Experience: Enquire about the number of operations where complications occurred and how they were addressed.
  • Follow-Up Procedures: Understand the post-operative follow-up plan in case of any issues.
  • Patient Satisfaction Rates: Ask about their patient satisfaction rates to gauge the overall experience.

Your journey to breast enhancement surgery should be guided by careful consideration and informed decisions. Prioritise your safety and well-being by choosing a reputable and experienced surgeon.
