FAQ

The majority of people who have breast augmentation are very happy with the results. However, there are risks with any procedure and there are specific problems you should be aware of with breast augmentations these include (but are not limited to):

  • Infection
  • Blood clots
  • Scarring
  • Asymmetry
  • Wound healing delays
  • Nipple hypersensitivity
  • Nerve injury leading to sensory reductions at the nipple
  • Size issues – some women feel they should have been made bigger or smaller after their augmentation procedure
  • Implant palpability
  • Implant wrinkling
  • Implant deflation (in cases of saline implants)
  • Implant migration and movement
  • Implant extrusion
  • Implant rotation (in cases of anatomic implants)
  • Difficulty with mammogram interpretation
  • Changes in the way breast lumps are investigated and treated
  • Capsular contraction (the formation of a hard painful or distorting area of scar tissue around the breast implant)
  • Silicone leakage (in cases of non-cohesive silicone gel implants)
  • Galactorrhoea (the inadvertent production of milk)
  • Further surgery: all implants have a lifespan that is limited and finite. In many cases, the patient lives longer than the implant. All women with breast implants should therefore prepare themselves for further surgery during the course of their life.
  • All the natural effects of having larger breasts – bra strap marks, drooping of the breast tissue with time, development of prominent veins, etc.

Your breast augmentation will probably be performed under general anaesthetic and you will probably stay at our daycare hospital until we feel you are comfortable enough to go home. When you do go home you will need to take painkillers for a few days until the discomfort settles down. The first day of the operation is the worst and you may well need help with day-to-day activities for a few days.

Some women still feel some twinges of discomfort for a few weeks after the operation, but most women are back to normal tasks within a few days. If you are taking time off work, you may be able to go back after a week and you can go back to high-impact activities after 4-6 weeks. Most women are back to doing most of their normal day to day tasks within a couple of days.

Choosing the right implant size is a matter of balancing what you already have with what you want and what we can use. We will measure you during your consultation and these measurements will determine the size of the implant we should use, the pocket placement (ie below the muscle or over the muscle) the shape of the implant, and the incision placement. Your surgeon will discuss the type of implants best suited for you.

The amount of nipple droop will also tell us whether you need to think about any other procedures to reshape the breast at the time of implant placement or at some other time in the future.

Although your surgeon will be able to give you a size that is roughly in keeping with what you want, there are usually never any guarantees of the exact size. In fact, different bra manufacturers will have different sizes to fit the same person.

All this means that you will usually be able to have a breast size roughly within the region of what you are hoping to achieve.

Your surgeon may perform various measurements as part of the consultation.
These measurements may include:

  • The distance between your nipple and the bone at the bottom of your neck
  • The width of the nipple-areolar-complex
  • The width of the breast itself
  • The distance between the two nipples
  • The distance between the nipple and the bottom of the breast
  • The amount of pull present within the skin of the breast
  • The thickness of the tissue at the top and sides of the breast
  • The height of the inframammary fold
  • The point along the chest wall where the breast begins to take off.

All these measurements will tell you and your surgeon what size of implant to use, what pocket to use, what incision to use, whether the same implants need to be used on each side, and whether there is already some degree of asymmetry between the two sides.

Breast implants don’t come in cup sizes, but they do come in volume or weight sizes. The bigger the implant, the greater the cup size increase you can expect to see after your operation. The bigger your bra bandwidth that you currently use, the bigger the implant size you will need to increase your cup size by one letter.
Different surgeons will use different ways of deciding together with you what’s best for your requirements. One way of deciding is to talk about implant dimensions. In other words, if we know how wide your breast already is, and if we know the measurements of the implants, then we can match this to how much of a size increase you want.

If you do not have enough pull of skin within your own breast, you may not be able to have as large an implant inserted as you may want. In these cases, you might need two operations to go bigger in stages. The vast majority of women, though, will be able to have a single operation to help them achieve their aims.

Most women want a very natural look and one that is in harmony and balance with the rest of their body shape and size, often wanting to look as if they haven’t had an operation, and also looking as if they don’t need an operation.
Some women, however, want a very enhanced look. In these cases, we can offer a range of expandable implants where the skin can be repeatedly stretched after the implant is inserted by pumping a salt water solution into the implants until the skin is stretched to its limits. This is then repeated until the desired size is achieved. If this is something you would like, please note that you will need to visit Glasgow probably around six or eight times for your consultation, surgery, and expansions.

With the newer ranges of breast implants, it is now possible to choose an implant based on desired projection, available skin for projection and current breast base dimensions. These “biodimensional” implants are also cohesive gel, carry a lifetime warranty against manufacturing defects, and can be used for greater choice and accuracy.

Skin laxity is determined at the time of consultation, the exact method best suited to you will be discussed during the consultation and a decision will be made together on how best to take things further.

Breast enlargement surgery is also known as breast augmentation, breast enhancement, inserting breast implants, and having a boob job. Currently, the most common means of breast augmentation is by inserting breast implants into the chest to make the breasts appear larger.

Breast implants come in three different varieties: the shape, the surface material texture, and the filler. All implants have a silicone outer coating and implants of each type come in various sizes.

Implant Shapes
Implants may be round or teardrop (anatomical) shaped. Both types have their advantages and disadvantages and the shape of the implant can be discussed at the time of the consultation.

Implant Textures
Implants can be smooth or textured. Textured implants have a rough surface and smooth implants have a smooth texture. Textured implants have a lower risk of developing capsular contracture, which is explained in the risks section.

Implant Fillers
Implants are commonly called silicone implants or saline implants and this refers to the fluid used to fill the implant. All implants have a silicone shell, but the filler material can differ. The most common filler materials we use nowadays are silicone or saline. Saline implants are filled with salt water at the time of the operation and a valve within the implant reduces the risk of saline leaking out of the implant causing deflation.

Silicone implants have been extensively tested for safety and an independent government report is available for you online. Different types of silicone are also available – some implants have thicker silicone within them, and the silicone will not leak out of the implant even if the implant ruptures.

Other implants use softer silicone gel. These implants are more affordable and feel softer but can potentially leak silicone into your breast. You can see a few of the different implant types at your consultation.

Some examples of breast surgery including before and after pictures can be downloaded here.

  • Breast reduction surgery
  • Augmentation mammoplasty
  • Mastectomy
  • Lumpectomy
  • Breast-conserving surgery, a less radical cancer surgery than mastectomy
  • Mastopexy, or breast lift surgery
  • Surgery for breast abscess, including incision and drainage as well as excision of lactiferous ducts
  • Surgical breast biopsy
  • Microdochectomy (removal of a lactiferous duct)

A full list of different types is availabe at Wikipedia

As part of the LBF aftercare policy, implants are covered by the manufacturer’s extended warranty against rupture and major capsular contracture which is for the life of the Patient.
This means that in the unlikely event that an implant ruptures or severe capsular contracture occurs within that time frame, LBF will replace implants free of charge within 3 years of undertaking the procedure. Outwith this period the implant supplier will supply replacement implants free of charge, however, there may be surgical fees charged to carry out the procedure.

Our 3-year warranty period applies to all surgical procedures and is conditional on the Patient attending all pre-operative assessments, undertaking all required tests, and having provided a comprehensive and accurate medical history prior to surgery.
Patients MUST attend all scheduled post-treatment appointment and comply with the surgeon’s guidance and instructions regarding post-operative care requirements, which includes but is not limited to, not tampering with wounds, not applying a non-standard dressing, not applying cream or medication to wounds that have not been indicated by LBF staff, etc.. Should a Patient fail to adhere to these requirements their warranty will be voided. Also, if the patient undertakes any further treatment or surgery within this period, which in the sole opinion of their surgeon, has compromised or altered the effectiveness or outcome of their procedure with LBF the warranty will be voided.

In the event that revision surgery is required the Patient should be aware that in some circumstances, there may be facility fees, surgeon fees, LBF fees, and anaesthetic fees.
