A top specialist in breast procedures, Anca Breahna is a well established cosmetic surgeon who provides breast enlargement surgery at her Chester clinic.
Also known as breast augmentation, breast enlargement is a hugely popular procedure in Chester, indeed across the UK, with patients opting to have this form of surgery for a variety of reasons.
In this page, we will outline key details, answer common questions and provide brief details about why Miss Breahna stands apart from other cosmetic surgeons in Cheshire. But please don’t hesitate to contact Anca’s clinic if any questions you have are not answered here.
Who Is Breast Enlargement Suitable For?
Breast enlargement can enhance the appearance of underdeveloped breasts.
The surgery can also help to restore volume and shape lost through weight loss, pregnancy or the process of ageing.
For others, the procedure might be sought to address an imbalance between the breasts, a breast enlargement procedure – or ‘boob job’ – creating a more symmetrical appearance.
Others will choose to undergo the procedure purely for cosmetic reasons, their breasts are not as they wish them to be, surgery is the remedy.
The surgery can be suitable for anyone for whom the size and shape of their breasts is a concern.
The benefits can be aesthetic but also psychological; if breasts are a cause for concern for someone then the surgery can help boost self-esteem and confidence.
It is worth noting that as a female cosmetic surgeon, one of the few operating in or around Chester, Miss Breahna has great understanding of the impact this surgery can have.
Breast Enlargement Surgery Chester: Options
You may be aware that there are different options for breast enlargement in Chester when it comes to types of implant, i.e. different clinics in Chester might offer a range of implants.
It is impossible to state in a page which is the right option for any patient – some would be best suited to silicone implants, others to saline. There are pros and cons with each option, including the expected lifespan for the implants.
That is why a consultation is key: it is your chance to discuss your hopes for any surgery and for the experienced practitioner to talk you through the options and suggest a best plan of action.
The blog on this site provides answers to a number of key questions, for example the differences between the types of implants, how long implants typically last for and the key facts you need to know before opting for breast enlargement surgery.
Breast Enlargement Procedure
The breast enlargement procedure actually begins with a detailed consultation.
This step is of vital importance, it is your chance to talk and for the surgeon to listen, the patient outlining the concerns they have with their breast and their hopes for surgery.
The surgeon can then outline the best options and answer any queries. The patient is also getting a sense for the surgeon – do they instil confidence, do they have the patient-focussed ethos they desire?
If surgery is ultimately undertaken, Miss Breahna would take a range of photographs on the day of the procedure and draw on the breasts to mark the point of incision.
The incisions are typically made in the creases below the breast, and less often around the areola to minimise visible scarring.
The breast implant is inserted in one of two places – between the beast tissue and chest muscle or under the chest muscle.
The surgery is completed by the skillful closing up of the incisions and the application of surgical dressings.
While breast enlargement surgery is a procedure a surgeon such as Miss Breahna has carried out many times, it is still an operation that has some recovery time.
Patients will typically stay in hospital overnight and it may be that some time is required off work. The patient will also need to take things at a slower pace for a few days, with tasks such as driving or activities such as exercise limited.
Two weeks off work is common, while it can be up to 12 weeks before full exercise can be resumed.
Painkillers will be prescribed – some pain and tenderness is to be expected; while a follow-up appointment after seven to 10 days would check the healing and dressings.
Key to recovery is having a surgeon who places an emphasis on aftercare. With Miss Breahna, there are follow-up procedures at one week, six weeks, three months and six months and she is also available to answer any queries in-between these dates.
Detailed information relating to recovery would be provided during consultation and pre surgery.
Breast surgery is likely to lead to short term bruising, swelling, redness and, in some cases, numbness. However, more serious concerns such as infection or bleeding are extremely rare.
