Breast Augmentation in Newcastle
Do you want your breasts to look more shapely, curved or fuller? Dr Mistry is a well experienced Plastic and Cosmetic Surgeon located in Newcastle, who can help. Breast augmentation or enlargement is a simple cosmetic procedure where implants are inserted under the breast tissue or muscle to increase the size or change the shape of the breasts.
Breast Implant Shape and Size
Breast implants can be either teardrop shaped or round:
- Teardrop-shaped implants are designed to follow the natural profile of the breast and can achieve the most natural-looking result.
- Round implants are the traditional breast implant design and can help to create soft, round and nicely proportioned breasts.
Breast Augmentation: What to Expect
Our team will talk you through the surgery and provide you with all of the support you need: before, during and after your surgery.
Before: We know that no two breast augmentation procedures are the same. During a consultation with our specialist, a careful and comprehensive evaluation of your personal needs will be carried out. Dr Mistry will help you understand the type, shape, and breast implant size that will suit your overall physique and individual requirements.
During: Dr Mistry has experience performing breast augmentation surgery. The operation is carried out under a general anaesthetic and the time it takes will vary from patient to patient, but it can take around 90 minutes. An incision is made in the skin about 5cm long, usually in the crease below the breast, creating a pocket for the implant to be placed in. This is then stitched up.
After: Patient care is our number one priority, which is why we offer ongoing post-operative care. It’s important to take it slowly after your surgery. You are usually required to wear a post-surgical bra 24-hours a day to support and protect your breasts after the surgery. Every patient is different but a full recovery is usually made between four and six weeks.
