Breast Augmentation

If you are looking for breast augmentation in Leicester or Lincoln, Mr Yii provides consultations privately in all main hospitals. One of the most successful and popular surgical procedures, a breast augmentation or enlargement aims to increase and improve the shape of your breasts using silicone gel implants.

Women may chose to have a breast augmentation because they feel their breasts have always been too small. Some may chose to do so after pregnancy, breast feeding or losing weight, all of which may have affected the size and shape of the breasts. It is also possible to have a breast enlargement to correct differences between the size of your breasts.

The implants are available in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, which is why the consultation is so important for you to convey your expectations to your surgeon. Mr Yii is happy to see you for a follow-up consultation before you make this important decision

A short incision is usually made in the inframammary fold (the crease under the breast). The implants can be inserted either between the breast tissue and the pectoral muscle or behind the muscle.

Your breast augmentation procedure will be performed under general anaesthetic and patients either stay overnight or go home the same day. Mr Yii uses dissolvable stitches which will disappear over a period of a few weeks.

You will generally be able to resume normal activities after a few days and should be able to return to work after two weeks. You will be seen a week after your procedure and then a few weeks later.

As with all surgical procedures, there are risks and potential side effects to a breast augmentation procedure and Mr Yii will discuss them in full with you before you go ahead with the procedure.
