Breast Surgery at Birmingham Beauty Clinic
Breast surgery is often referred to as a boob job and many women in Birmingham undergo surgery for many different reasons.
The term ‘breast surgery’ covers a range of different procedure types and is inclusive of treatment and care.
Birmingham Beauty Clinic is a trusted and safe breast surgery provider that carries out procedures to suit each patients’ individual needs, preferred shape and size.
Our professional, qualified staff take great pride in upholding our strong reputation in the cosmetic surgery field for the highest possible standard of patient care.
Types Of Breast Surgery:
1. Breast Augmentation (“Boob Job”)
Breast augmentation is designed to improve the size and/or shape of the breast. Augmentation, also known as enlargement, is a cosmetic surgery procedure that is usually performed following the loss of breast volume.
This loss of volume could be due to any of the following reasons; previous breast surgery, child birth / breast feeding or weight loss.
Breast augmentation is also considered by many patients in the Birmingham area to improve their body contour or to achieve breast symmetry in asymmetrical breasts.
The procedure involves placing a silicone gel or saline implant in the pocket created in each breast.
2. Breast Uplift (Mastopexy)
Mastopexy, more commonly known as a breast lift or uplift, is a procedure that raises (uplifts) and reshapes the breasts giving a more youthful overall appearance.
Surgery involves an incision that is made around the areola and extends downwards towards the lower end of the breast and looks like a ‘key hole’. Sometimes further incision is added horizontally along the breast crease.
Breast uplift does not add to the breast tissue but does change the overall shape and position of both nipples and the breast. Breast implants can be inserted in combined surgery to increase the size and improve firmness.
3. Breast Reduction
Breast reduction is the surgical procedure of reducing the size of large breasts. Also known as reduction mammaplasty, this procedure is designed to bring about a more proportionate body figure and creates a more functional bust for the patient, who may or may not struggle with symptoms but are unhappy with the way their breasts look.
Excess fat and skin are removed during a reduction procedure and breasts can be reshaped to a more desired shape and reposition the nipples.
Breast surgery comes with a level of risk and side effects that may be experienced following your procedure. All side effects are outlined and discussed during your consultation. These include:
* Difficult or inability to breastfeed
* Loss or change of nipple and breast sensation
* Loss of skin
* Capsular contracture
* Scar tissue
If you are based in Birmingham or surrounding areas, you will be able to easily attend a breast surgery consultation in our conveniently located Birmingham clinic. During a consultation with Dr Shivram Singh, although some side effects are very rare, you will be given a list of all side effects and the level of risk associated with each one.
You should expect t0 experience some discomfort and pain immediately following breast surgery. Depending on the type and extent of your procedure, you may be required to wear a sport / support bra and take pain-relief medication to ease symptoms. Your support bra should be worn for around six weeks and light exercise such as walking is recommended.
* After One Week
Undissolvable stitches will be removed and your wounds will be assessed in a follow up appointment. You may still feel discomfort, particularly when you move or raise your arms. You can resume normal daily activities but avoid lifting and strenuous exercise. You can take a shower and begin applying regular moisturising cream to any scars.
* After One Month+
Your scars will settle down and may be more comfortable to touch. Breast and nipple sensation will improve and after six weeks support bras need only to be worn during the day.
You can expect your final results of your breast surgery to be visible in six to nine months.
