Now with a clinic in Chester, Anca Breahna is a leading UK cosmetic surgeon with huge experience in performing breast implant procedures – she also has the undeniable benefit of bringing a female perspective to this surgery.
Also often known as a breast enlargement, or breast augmentation, the process of having breast implants is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the UK with many patients opting for this treatment for a variety of reasons.
And the results can have huge benefits, both physically but also to a person’s mental health and self-esteem. Breast shape and size can be a concern to many women, having any perceived imperfections addressed therefore goes far beyond just the change to appearance.
If you are interested in exploring enhancements to the size or shape of your breasts, or to address an issue such as asymmetrical breasts then please contact Anca Breahna for a consultation. This is your opportunity to discuss your concerns about breast implants with a recognized expert in the field and find out the results achievable.
Miss Breahna is a specialist in procedures relating to breast augmentation, her NHS practice is focussed around breast reconstructive surgery demonstrating that this is an area of special expertise, one she has developed during a two-decade career.
Breast Implant Benefits
The benefits of breast implants of course vary by patient, for somebody who is perfectly happy with their cleavage there would be no advantage to having surgery.
For others, the impact can be profound, it is no exaggeration to say that some find having implants to their breasts truly life changing.
- The breast size and shape you’ve always wanted.
For many women, this is why they opt for surgery to their breasts. They perceive their breasts to be underdeveloped, or lacking in size and/or shape.
The insertion of implants can address this and the precise results achievable would be discussed during a detailed consultation with Miss Breahna.
- Addressing asymmetrical breasts
Breast asymmetry, or thoughts that your breasts are uneven are relatively common; they can develop differently, one breast can be of a significantly smaller size or different shape.
Breast implants can help to resolve this imbalance; it could be that just one breast requires implants, or there may be a desire to make both larger but, at the same time, also ensure they are perfectly matched.
- Improving self esteem
For a woman who is happy with her breasts, surgery would not have any positive impact on self esteem.
However, the very fact you are reading a page about getting breast implants in Chester suggests there is at least some degree of concern.
As with any perceived physical imperfection, or desire for change to appearance, there can be ongoing stress, the thought that a part of your body is not as you would like it to be.
Naturally, corrective surgery can be of benefit and post-surgery there can be a boost to self-esteem and confidence that has impacts in all areas of a person’s life. Often, even the process of beginning with a consultation boosts self esteem – there is that feeling that you are doing something about it.
Miss Breahna brings her female perspective into play, being able to empathise with any prospective patient.
At consultation, she would always ensure that any surgery truly is in the patient’s self interest and that the implants would be of genuine benefit to that person.
Miss Breahna is aware that the benefits should be for you – your self image, your confidence, you feeling that you look great; they are not for someone else – having surgery to please a partner or out of peer pressure.
Options for Breast Implants
Modern breast implants consist of a thick silicone shell filled with cohesive silicone gel which feels as soft as the natural breast tissue. The shell surface can be either smooth or rough (textured).
There are then further sub divisions, for instance round vs anatomical (tear drop) implants.
There is also the option of using grafted fat for breast augmentation surgery, for instance from the thigh or tummy – this surgery often referred to as Composite Breast Augmentation as it is common for women who want to achieve a naturally looking augmented breast by removing some of the fat that is naturally put on and redistributing this to the breasts.
In truth, we could write 10,000 words here detailing every type of breast implant option and you would finish reading still with no clear picture as to which is right for you.
That is because the consultation is all important, this an open and honest discussion between you and Miss Breahna. She would be able to advise as to which forms of implants might be the most suitable and answer any queries.
There is no singular best breast implant that is the right choice for everyone – it depends on the nature of the breasts pre surgery and the desired look post operation.
Breast Implant Procedure
If there is an agreement between patient and surgeon that breast implants are the best option, the surgery itself can be performed in a number of ways.
Incisions will be made through which the implants can be inserted, these incisions typically beneath the breast, around the areola or in the armpit – these locations to minimise visible scarring.
The implant is then inserted either between the breast tissue and chest muscle or under the chest muscle.
The stitches are then closed and the dressing applied.
Miss Breahna would discuss the options during consultation and which incision method she would recommend.
The surgery typically takes one to two hours and is performed under general anaesthetic.
Post-surgery there will typically be an overnight stay in hospital and then pain would be managed via painkillers at home.
A follow-up appointment, typically around a week later would then ensure healing was as expected and dressings applied.
Miss Breahna has the highest standards of patient care and would hold follow-up appointments at, typically, one week, 6 weeks, 3 months and then 6 months post surgery – and extra appointments in the rare case there are any concerns.

Chester is a beautiful walled city located within the county of Cheshire and on the River Dee.
The city was founded as Castrum, the Roman fort located there called Deva Vitrix – this was one of the main army camps in the UK. Deva then became a major settlement in its own right.
Chester has a long and rick history, it was given city status as far back as 1541 and its importance is shown by the castle and walls, these remaining among the most complete city walls in the UK. The castle received numerous extra fortifications through the centuries, the initial castle built under the instructions of William the Conqueror.
Chester remained important through later centuries, for instance the nearby Newtown, with the Shropshire Union Canal were key to distribution.
The city is now a popular one for tourists, this a key industry, so too are public administration and retail.
A large number of well known celebrities and famous people were born in Chester, or lived in the city, these include Russ Abbot, Beth Tweddle, Ben Foden and many people’s favourite James Bond – Daniel Craig.
