Breast Enlargement

Breast Enlargement

Breast enlargement hospital procedures in Lancaster and Preston are performed by leading Consultant, Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeon Stuart McKirdy covering Lancashire and Cumbria.

Breast enlargements are performed by inserting a breast implant, made from silicone gel or saline – placed either under the natural breast tissue (sub-glandular) or under the chest muscle (sub-muscular). The implant of choice in Stuart’s practice is silicone gel. This implant is manufactured by Mentor Medical Ltd and he is confident there is no evidence that this type of implant is responsible for any major diseases of the body.

The size of breasts is genetically determined. Once developed, the breasts may fluctuate in size in response to changes in weight, pregnancy and breast feeding. The ageing process causes the shape of the breast to change so that they gradually droop (called ptosis). This effect is greater following pregnancy, breast feeding and in particular after a large weight loss. Most women have breasts of slightly different sizes, but occasionally a very marked difference may develop. Stuart adopts a very conservative approach and will only perform a breast enlargement hospital procedure that enhances breasts to a size which are in keeping with the general shape and size of your body.

Positioning of scar

The implants can be inserted via an insertion in the armpit, around the edge of the nipple, or most commonly via the breast crease or infra-mammary fold. Stuart will use the breast crease incision in 99% of his breast enlargement hospital procedures – the resulting scar is approximately 5cm long.
