Let Your Body Talk

Breast enlargement is a cosmetic surgery procedure, which involves increasing the size of your breasts with the use of implants (most common) or by using fat transferred from other parts of your body.
This cosmetic procedure is also known as augmentation mammaplasty, breast augmentation and more commonly; a boob job. It is one of the most popular types of cosmetic surgery in the UK.
You can use our procedure guide to breast enlargement to find out more about what is involved before, during and after surgery.
The aim of breast enlargement surgery is to change the shape and size of your breasts to make them look fuller and improve your body contour.
Your cosmetic surgeon typically uses breast implants for enlargement, but can also enlarge your boobs with the use of liposuction and fat transfer.
Liposuction can be used to suck out fat from one or more parts of your body and transfer it to your breasts. See our fat transfer procedure page for more information on this.
Below is a list of some of the reasons why you may decide to have your breasts enlarged:

  • Boost self confidence or self esteem
  • Improve body contour and silhouette
  • Fix breasts that lack symmetry
  • Increase or restore fullness of your breasts that may be lost due to weight loss, ageing or child bearing

Breast enlargement alone does not correct sagging, but it can be combined with other cosmetic procedures to further enhance your breasts and meet additional goals.
Your cosmetic surgeon may recommend other procedures to help you get the desired look you want, such as breast uplift or nipple surgery.

What to expect:


A consultation with a breast enlargement specialist is one of the most important aspects of cosmetic surgery. It is your opportunity to not only undergo a medical assessment, but to find out everything you need to know about breast enlargement so that you can make an information decision about surgery. A consultation can last between 20 minutes to 60 minutes and you will discuss the following example points:
  • Your desired goals and expectations
  • Why you want to have breast enlargement surgery
  • Medical conditions, including any allergies and medications
  • Previous surgery
  • Planned future surgery
  • Familial diseases and history
  • Whether you drink, smoke or have taken drugs
  • Mammogram results depending on age
Your surgeon will also carry out a full medical examination, which will include measuring your breast size and shape along with recording the type of skin you have and nipple placement. In addition, your cosmetic surgeon will be able to advise you on the type of procedure that will best suit you based on:
  • Your current breast size, health and medical conditions
  • The volume and quality of your breast tissue
  • The shape and size of the results you want to achieve
During your consultation, your surgeon will talk to you about the risks and complications of surgery so that you are aware of everything to make an informed decision prior to giving consent.

What are the risks?

As with all surgical procedures, there are some risks and complications that can occur.

With breast enlargement, there are a number of specific risks and side effects that you should be aware of before having breast surgery, including:

Infections are very rare in breast enlargement surgery, however, women can get an infection, which sometimes requires the implant to be removed and inserted at a later date.

Nerve Damage
Although loss of sensation around the nipple can occur on a temporary basis post surgery, there is a chance that some numbness can be permanent.

An implant can rupture or leak because of injury – such as a blow to the breast, age or capsular contracture.

Capsular contracture
Internal scar tissue can form a capsule around the implant, which contracts it and causes it to change shape or feel hard. Although one of the more common complications, the chances of it happening are approximately 5%. In most cases, people will notice this complication within the first 24 months of surgery.

Implants can sometimes displace inside the breast. Although moving implants is rare, if the displacement is large it will need to be corrected with surgery.

When cells or tissue die or fail to receive sufficient blood supply, it is known as necrosis. This can happen during the healing process and will require surgery to fix it.

The spontaneous production of breast milk can happen after breast surgery. This complication is very rare but if it occurs can go away on its own. However, there has been cases where implant removal is required.

Sometimes a pool of clotted blood can collect in a cavity within the body, known as haematoma.

Seroma is fluid that can develop in a cavity after surgery made up of blood plasma, which requires drainage.
