Breast Augmentation in London & Essex

Are you embarrassed by naturally small breasts or deflated breasts that have lost volume and shape over time? Breast augmentation is a popular cosmetic procedure that uses breast implants to increase size, volume and cleavage. Following breast augmentation, you can expect to have fuller breasts as well as look and feel more confident than even before.

Renowned plastic surgeon and founder of Attune Clinic, Mr Miles Banwell understands that there is no “one-size-fits-all” approach when it comes to breast augmentation. He is highly committed to achieving beautiful, natural-looking results that meet the aesthetic concerns and goals of his patients.

Can I Benefit from Breast Augmentation?

You may be a candidate for breast augmentation if you:

  • Have small or asymmetrical breasts
  • Have deflated breasts due to pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight gain or the natural aging process
  • Are in good overall health
  • Do not smoke
  • Have realistic expectations of the procedure

Choosing Your Breast Implants

Mr Banwell can enhance the size and appearance of breasts using silicone implants, which consist of a semi-solid silicone gel that closely resembles the look and feel of natural breasts. Mr Banwell is also highly experienced with use of polyurethane coated silicone implants, which he feels can be particularly beneficial in selected patients. The plastic surgeon will discuss the benefits and limitations of silicone implants with you during your personal consultation. Mr Banwell will also discuss implant size, shape and placement with you. He will take your anatomy and personal preferences into consideration in order to design a treatment plan that best achieves your desired outcome.

What Can I Expect from the Procedure?

Breast augmentation is performed on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia. To begin, Mr Banwell will create an incision (the type and location of the incision will be pre-determined by you and him prior to surgery). He will then create a pocket where the implant will be carefully placed. Depending on the patient’s anatomy, lifestyle and preference, the implant can be positioned either behind or in front of the chest muscle. Once the implant is placed, the surgeon will close the incisions with sutures and place shower-proof dressings and a surgical bra for added support.

If you desire perkier, younger-looking breasts, your breast augmentation procedure can be combined with breast lift. During this combination procedure, the surgeon will remove loose, excess skin and reshape the breast tissue as needed to create the most natural-looking lift possible.

What Happens During Recovery?

The initial recovery period typically takes one to two weeks, depending on the patient’s personal healing progress. Rest assured that Mr Banwell and our experienced team will monitor your progress and make any modifications as needed to ensure a safe and speedy recovery.

During your initial recovery, you should expect to take time off work and your normal routine. You will also need to avoid any strenuous movement, including bending and lifting objects heavier than 10 pounds. Bruising, swelling and soreness are normal and temporary. Our team routinely prescribe oral pain medication in order to minimize discomfort. We will also go over in detail with you a list of post-op guidelines and instructions. Failure to follow these guidelines can result in complications and a longer recovery, and can alter your results.

What Results Can I Expect?

Immediately following breast augmentation, you will notice swelling and bruising in the chest area. This is only temporary and should subside over the next few weeks.. Once you are fully healed, you can expect shapelier, fuller breasts and a more curvaceous overall figure. As the months pass following your augmentation surgery, your breasts will continue to soften and your chest will feel ever more natural as your implants become part of the new “normal you.”
