How to choose the best size and shape of implants for your Breast Enlargement?


If you’re concerned about the size or shape of your breasts and considering Breast Augmentation surgery, then foremost in your mind will be how to select the shape and size of implants most appropriate and proportionate for your body.

Breast enlargement surgery, also known as a ‘boob job’, is the most common type of cosmetic surgery procedure carried out in the U.K. and has changed the lives of many women, boosting their confidence and self-esteem..

Women may choose to undergo breast enlargement to:

  • Boost their cup size if they feel their bust did not develop to their desired size during puberty.

  • Balance out asymmetry where one breast is bigger than the other.

  • Restore volume and shape after a pregnancy or significant weight loss.

  • Reconstruct breasts after a procedure such as a mastectomy.

  • Improve their self-esteem and confidence.

Consultant Plastic Surgeon Mr Will Anderson said that “The evidence supports the use of round implants over shaped. Also the importance of choosing the right implant to fit your body is crucial along with having a shared vision with the patient of their aesthetic goal.”
