Breast augmentation & enlargement surgery with implants
As you’ll learn, there are many decisions you and your surgeon must make when choosing a breast implant, from characteristics of the implant (such as type of material and surface) to what outcome it produces (such as shape, size, and projection). Every woman is different, from body type to lifestyle to the desired look. Fortunately, no matter what you decide, your surgeon will be able to choose the right implant to suit your needs.
At MyBreast we offer additional peace of mind by only ever having worked with the finest quality breast implants from Nagor and Motiva. Today there are two main types of breast implants available: silicone gel-filled or saline-filled. There are advantages and disadvantages to both types and your MyBreast surgeon will explain the best choice for your body at your consultation.
Nagor breast implants come with a lifetime implant guarantee, their comprehensive range of breast implants offer our surgeons 270 options in silicon round and anatomical (teardrop) configurations. Our Nagor implants are a premium product and have always been made to the highest standards. In fact, we have one of the lowest rupture rates on the market, plus our patients are fully protected with Nagor’s GCA Comfort Guarantee. ‘In the unlikely event of an accident causing your breast implant to rupture, you will be provided with new implants free of charge’.
Years of breast implant research and development have led to enhanced safety and innovation, we also offer Motiva implants that are covered against rupture by the Always Confident Warranty® for the lifetime of the implants, and by the Motiva Product Replacement Policy against capsular contracture for a period of 10 years. Motiva breast implants have:
- No cases of late seroma, double encapsulation or ALCL
- Micro-transponder technology for improved traceability
- BlueSeal visible barrier to ensure the critical barrier layer is fully intact around the implant
- TrueTissue technology in Ergonomix implants provides natural looking results.
MyBreast set the standard for breast augmentation aftercare and implant guarantees. Our commitment to our patients extends beyond surgery. We offer a comprehensive aftercare policy, including all post-operative check-ups and unlimited appointments with a surgeon following surgery.
If you experience complications and require a return to theatre this is covered for up to 6 months from the date of your surgery. All our breast implants also come with a lifetime guarantee so in the unusual event of developing capsular contracture or experiencing an implant rupture, even after 5 years following your primary procedure with MyBreast, you will not be charged for the replacement implants. Please see our Aftercare Terms for more details as there are associated hospital fees after five years from your surgery date.
All our patients’ needs are unique, we will talk to you at length about your breast profile and the look you wish to achieve, listen to your needs, offer you advice and help you decide which breast implant is right for you in terms of your size and shape.
The size of your new breasts will be affected by the diameter of the implant (determining the ‘fullness’ of your breasts) and its projection (how ‘prominent’ you’d like your breasts to appear).
Implants can be chosen by diameter and have the option of three projections, leading to a more tailored solution for you. Our comprehensive range of breast implants include 100s of different sizes and shapes and your surgeon will assist you in making your ultimate choice.
Round implants are sometimes perceived to produce a more ‘fake’ or ‘augmented’ look, this is just a common misconception and their popularity is testament to their success. The round implant is the implant of choice in the UK and is suitable for the majority of patients. In the unlikely event a round implant ‘turns’ in its pocket, it will remain symmetrical and not distort the shape of the breast.
Anatomical breast implants are shaped like a teardrop. Designed to follow the body’s natural lines and produce a more natural looking breast, they have more volume at the bottom than the top and appear more oval when viewed from the front.
Although initially brought into practice for use in reconstruction surgeries, they’re now widely used for breast augmentation purposes and often an appropriate choice for women with very little breast volume or for those who have a particular chest anatomy.
It is possible for anatomical implants to ‘turn’ or flip in the pocket. If this does occur the rotation will cause the breast to look lopsided. For this reason, all anatomical implants are designed with a textured surface that adheres to the tissue, helping to keep the implant in place.
