The Harley Medical Group has reported a rise in breast augmentation surgery, which maintains its title as the most popular cosmetic surgery procedure requested by women. The increase has been driven by a boom in post baby surgery with mums now accounting for 60% of all breast augmentation patients.
Angela Fry, 38, from Maidenhead had a breast augmentation after she had her fourth child. She said: “After each birth my shape changed dramatically and my breasts sagged and lost their shape completely. For me, having a breast augmentation wasn’t about getting bigger breasts but getting them back to the shape and size that was right for my figure. Having the surgery has made me feel more feminine and given me much more confidence in myself.”
Breast augmentation surgery was first performed in 1895 and is today the most popular surgical cosmetic procedure for women. During the procedure an incision is made in the crease of the underside of the breast and the implant is inserted into a pocket created by the surgeon. The result is fuller and more evenly shaped breasts. The treatment takes around one hour to perform and a general anaesthetic will be administered to the patient.
Breast reduction is popular surgical option for women wanting to achieve more proportionally sized breasts Breast reduction surgery usually takes three hours to complete, depending on the size of the breasts. The operation is carried out under general anaesthetic, and patients stay in hospital for one to two nights. Breast reduction patients are required to wear a supportive bra for up to three months to keep the breasts well supported whilst healing takes place and ensure the best possible results.
