Harley Medical Group Reveals Breast Surgery Still Top Of The Ops
on: September 7, 2009, 3:54 am
Harley Medical Group has reported a rise in breast augmentation
surgery, which maintains its title as the most popular cosmetic
surgery procedure requested by women. The increase has been driven
by a boom in post baby surgery with mums now accounting for 60%
of all breast augmentation patients.
Fry, 38, from Maidenhead had a breast augmentation after she had
her fourth child. She said: "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
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.
reduction is popular surgical option for women wanting to
achieve more proportionally sized breasts Breast reduction surgery
usually takes three hours to complete, depending on the size of
the breasts. The operation is carried out under general anaesthetic,
and patients stay in hospital for one to two nights. Breast reduction
patients are required to wear a supportive bra for up to three
months to keep the breasts well supported whilst healing takes
place and ensure the best possible results.
