We Keep Breast Surgery Safe & Natural
Breast augmentation involves surgery, and as with all forms of surgery, there are certain risks involved. To minimize risks involved in breast enlargement, potential candidates for should be in good physical health, and it is important that your body has stopped developing. In most cases, this will be at or around the age of 18. The ultimate aim of any procedure is for a fast and satisfactory recovery, which is why we do not recommend this for anyone suffering from chronic medical conditions. Changing your appearance should always be a personal choice, that the patient wants, rather than to please a partner.
Our friendly staff will also give you a full explanation of the operations including any potential risks. We want you to have realistic expectations; for instance, should you want to move from an “A” cup bra size to a “DD,” there may not be sufficient tissue to accomplish this and leave a natural look. In this circumstance, for instance, the edges could become visible, and the results will not look natural. Additionally, this increases the risk of other complications or problems. Depending on your requirements, we might even suggest other procedures if we feel that is a preferential option due to your personal circumstances.

We Are Experts in Breast Surgery
The most important thing to do when choosing a surgeon is to take your time. Plastic surgery is a very personal operation, and it is imperative that you have total faith and confidence in the surgeon you choose. Arrange a meeting with the surgeon, and during the process evaluate their team, the facilities, and ask to view some before and after pictures of previous patients.
A breast augmentation is a procedure that is done in order to enhance the size of one’s breast, and slightly change the shape as well. Many women feel that this is the most rewarding of plastic surgery procedures because the results are stunning and the procedure is safe and recovery time is minimal.
A breast lift, also known as a mastopexy, is a plastic surgery procedure that is done to raise the breast and nipple to achieve a “younger” and “perkier” look. This is often a procedure that is sought after by women once their breasts begin to sag; is often combined with a breast augmentation to achieve the best looking results.
A breast revision procedure is often done in the case of a patient going either to a different country or inexperienced surgeon for breast implants. These surgeries are considered “botched” and need correcting by a experienced and board certified plastic surgeon.
Breast reduction also known as reduction mammoplasty is a plastic surgery that is used to remove the excess breast fat, skin and glandular tissues so as to achieve a breast size and shape that is proportional to the body. Breast reduction helps in alleviating the discomforts associated with large breast.
