Breast Enlargement / Breast Augmentation in Chester
A Breast Augmentation is also known as a “Breast Enlargement” or a “Boob Job”. Is the most popular and widely performed procedure in plastic surgery.
A breast augmentation can increase the breast size and may improve shape and enhance breast symmetry. Following breast augmentation there is no evidence of any interference with the ability to breastfeed. Please note that should you need to undergo breast cancer screening (mammogram), inform the person performing the screening that an implant is in place.

About Breast Enlargement
Breast enlargement, involves the insertion of a silicone breast implant to increase the size of the breast and, in some cases, improve the shape of the breast as well. Breasts can be made larger by placing an implant either under the breast tissue or behind the muscle on which the breast lies. Implants are usually inserted through incisions in the fold under the breast.
It is also possible to enlarge the breasts using fat harvested from another area of the patient’s body, such as the abdomen or the buttocks. We now offer HYBRID breast augmentation, a combination of implant and fat transfer. This may be possible when the patients carry extra fat which can be transferred.
Hybrid surgery is a combination of fat transfer and implant. This allows the surgeon to mould the breast to more optimal shape.
Types Of Breast Implants
There are different types of implant available and Mr Alvi will discuss these with you to help you decide what is right for you. Implants can be round or shaped and can have different surfaces (smooth, micro textured, textured) and the projection of the implants varies (moderate, high, extra high etc).
We use Motiva ergonomic with Q implants. The Q stands for a chip inside the implant which allows for traceability. Motiva are one of the most innovative implant manufacturers. The ergonomic type of gel helps to give a more anatomical shape to the breast.
Under & Over The Muscle
There is a lot of misinformation about placement of implants. No implant is inserted ‘into’ the breast tissue. The implant is either under the breast tissue (over the chest wall muscle i.e. pectoralis major muscle) or under the muscle. The surgeon will explain the reasons and pros and cons of each type of placement to you after examining you.
Who Will Benefit From a Boob Enhancement?
The ideal reasons for breast implants include asymmetry, disproportionate size of breast to body physique, personal preferences etc. Females of young to old age can have breast implants. There is wide range of materials, shapes and sizes in which the implants are available. Obviously subject to the choice of the client, followed by the consultations by our highly experienced surgeon, Mr Alvi.
Breast enlargement is a long term commitment and we recommend you think carefully about it before deciding to proceed. The implant lifespan is approximately 15 years and you will be committed to having the implants removed and possibly replaced at that stage.
