Before and After
What is Breast Enlargement (Augmentation Mammoplasty)
Breast Enlargement Surgery is for women who consider their breasts to be too small, not of the same size, or believe that their breasts have lost shape. In breast enlargement surgery, breast implants are used to increase the size of breasts.
At the Nu Cosmetic Clinic, we know how valuable your time is, that’s why we aim to secure an appointment with your cosmetic surgeon swiftly and at a time convenient to you. We offer a range of breast enlargement before and after photographs for you prior to the procedure so you can get an idea about what to expect from surgery. We ensure that each woman we work with is advised on the most suitable shape, size and type of implant that is best suited for her body type, the shape of her breasts, and the type of her skin.

There are three basic ways of making an incision for placing the breast implant. The cut is made either around the bottom half of the areola (in the crease formed underneath the breast) or through the armpit. Once we have made the incision we will position the implant in one of two places, either between the ribs and the pectoral muscle, or between the breast tissue and the pectoral muscle. Your breast enhancement procedure will use general anaesthesia, and it will last approximately an hour.
We aim to return you safely to your own home the same day or the morning after your surgery. We use the Allergan Natrelle implants for breast enlargement surgery and these come with a lifetime guarantee against rupture. Click here to know more about our aftercare policy.

How long does the procedure take?
Depending on the complexity of the procedure, the surgery normally takes about 90 minutes, not including time in recovery.
Are the results permanent?
Yes, the results of a breast enlargement are permanent. However, if you loose/ gain a substantial amount of weight, or you have a baby, your breasts may change shape.
When can I go back to normal day-to-day activities?
We recommend that people take a week off work following the procedure (more if your job is particularly physical). Strenuous activities, heavy lifting and exercise should be avoided for about 6 weeks after your surgery.
Are there any alternatives to this surgery?
No, the only way to reduce the size, or change the shape of your nipples is by surgery.
Can I combine this procedure with other surgery?
Yes, you can combine this procedure with other breast or body surgeries. You can discuss this in full at your free consultation.
What are my choices of implants?
Nowadays, there are a vast number of implants from you to choose from depending on the look you are trying to achieve. As a guide, you should choose between round or tear drop shape (tear drop giving a more natural appearance), the size of implant you require and the projection.
What is the difference between over and under the muscle?
This concerns the placement of the implant. Your surgeon will be able to advise on the best technique for you, as much depends on your skin, build and desired result. As a general rule, under the muscle will give a more natural appearance, where over the muscle is sometimes better for women with a moderate amount of sagging.
Will I have altered sensation in the area?
Whenever skin is cut, nerves are also cut; this may result in altered sensation to the area, particularly at the incision site. All care will be taken to maintain sensation as much as possible.
What weight should I be for surgery?
You should be at a healthy weight for your height when you have surgery as this lowers risks related to anaesthetic. For the best aesthetic results, we recommend that you are at your ideal weight at the time of surgery as further weight loss or gain can change the results of your surgery.
When can I fly after the procedure?
You should check with your surgeon regarding safe timings of air travel following your surgery. Many airlines have their own protocols and you should inform your travel insurance company if you have had recent surgery.
We recommend that in the weeks after surgery, you are close to a Nu Cosmetic clinic in case you have any concerns, so foreign holidays may be best avoided until a few months after your procedure.
Am I too young/ too old for this procedure?
All clients must be at least 18 years of age to have surgery. We do not set an upper age limit for our procedures, suitability for surgery will be discussed at your free consultation with your surgeon.
Can I get a second opinion?
Yes, if you are at all unsure about what your surgeon has told you, we will be more than happy to arrange a second free consultation with another Nu Cosmetic Clinic surgeon.
Are your surgeons suitably qualified and registered?
All of our surgeons are registered with the General Medical Council (GMC) and all relevant specialist bodies. Please feel free to ask your surgeon about his experience and qualifications at your consultation; they understand and support that this is vital information to your decision making process.
Where are your clinics?
Nu Cosmetic Clinic has clinics throughout the UK
Natalie is mother to a young family, living in Merseyside. Recently, she underwent breast augmentation at the Nu Cosmetic hospital. “Before I had my kids, I was low on confidence and this was due to my breasts. After having kids, this condition worsened and I really desired a bigger chest, as well as a lift.”
After making hours of research and attending a few local consultations, Natalie booked in for a consultation with one of Nu Cosmetic Clinic´s specialist surgeons. “The information available online for Nu Cosmetic was great. I could relate to the real life stories and gauge the excellent feedback and satisfaction from other clients.”
Natalie met with a surgeon for the consultation. This involved discussing the procedure, along with the associated features and benefits. “I felt like he knew me as a person, and could relate to exactly what I wanted”. This was in contrast to other clinics Natalie visited, where she claimed it was more what they wanted to perform and not her, in addition to unwanted follow up calls trying to force a decision.
Joanne is a 41 year old professional woman from Liverpool. She recently underwent breast augmentation with Nu Cosmetic clinic at their Manchester branch.
“I needed a subtle uplift of my chest, as it was not as toned as in my younger years. I was not looking for a dramatic change, just more of fullness and tone”. A full consultation with our medical team and surgeon suggested that Joanne´s augmentation procedure should take her from a CC to a DD/E cup size. This would give her the natural fullness that she sought. It was also recommended by the consultant that this operation is replicated every ten years, for health and aesthetic issues. The breast insert types and sizes were chosen specifically for Joanne based on her requirements and consultant recommendations.
The procedure was completed within one day. An operative time of 1.5 hours meant that Joanne was able to go home the same evening. Outwith this, an initial ´downtime´ of 3-5 days allowed Joanne to return to an almost normal routine shortly after the operation.
“I had to take a few days off work, and took antibiotics as a precaution in the first instance. I was advised to not drive for several weeks (as it could invalidate my insurance), as well as avoiding the gym for 6 weeks.”
The end outcome? Joanne achieved a result she says is ´really fantastic.´ This procedure has given her more confidence within herself and her daily outlook. This opinion was also shared by her family, friends and colleagues. ´The clinic provided me with a level of care and professionalism second to none, and I have had no doubt recommending them to my friends.´
