Harley Medical Group has reported a rise in breast augmentation
surgery, with a growth of 27% year on year. This increase has
been driven by a boom in post baby surgery, with mothers now accounting
for 60% of breast augmentation patients, making it the third most
common type of post-natal procedure.
Fry, 38, from Maidenhead had a breast
augmentation after she had her fourth child. She comments:
"After each birth my shape changed dramatically and my breasts
sagged and lost their shape completely. For me, having a Breast
Augmentation wasn’t about getting bigger breasts but getting
them back to the shape and size that was right for my figure.
Having the surgery has made me feel more feminine and given me
much more confidence in myself."
augmentation surgery was first performed in 1895 and is today
the most popular surgical cosmetic procedure for women. During
the procedure an incision is made in the crease of the underside
of the breast and the implant is inserted into a pocket created
by the surgeon. The result is fuller and more evenly shaped breasts.
The treatment takes around one hour to perform and a general anaesthetic
will be administered to the patient.
augmentation surgery at The Harley Medical Group costs from £4,275.
