Why can we provide such a great price ?

Well, its largely due to the fact that we own our own hospital

We pass on the savings to our patients to bring you the very best prices for breast Augmentation in the United Kingdom.

Breast enlargement surgery often known as a boob job is a procedure to increase the size and shape of the breasts. Restoring the balance between your breasts and hips makes your hips look smaller and creates a more proportional figure.

The Belvedere have invested in brand new consulting rooms incorporating state of the art 3D simulation platform for our Potential Breast Enlargement Customers

 

You can now try your new body before surgery — with accurate immersive 3d visualisation to see your new breasts.

  • Discreet and dedicated consultation room.

About Your Breast Augmentation Procedure

Breast augmentation planning begins with an overall evaluation to ensure you are healthy enough for the procedure. This evaluation minimises possible surgical risks. A complete history of all health disorders, medications, and allergies will be considered in pre-operative screening prior to surgery.

The size and selection of appropriate breast implants (round of anatomical/teardrop) and expected aesthetic appearance is something which you will discuss with your surgeon in detail during your consultation. Initial results can be seen immediately, however, it can take between two and four months to appreciate the final result of your breast enhancement. Wearing a support bra helps during the recovery period.

There will be scars of about 4-5cm in the creases below the breast where the implants have been inserted. These will fade over time as the wounds heal, and this usually takes around three months. The scars continue to improve and are normally only just visible at six months. The breast enlargement procedure is performed under a general anaesthetic

Our breast surgeon may wish to collaborate with your primary care provider for any additional information. Blood testing and a baseline mammogram for women over the age of 35 or those with a family history of breast cancer may be recommended prior to any surgical procedure.

It is important to recognise that similar to other medical devices, breast implants – saline or silicone – are not lifetime devices. It is possible that at some point in your life they will need to be removed or replaced, and you should talk to your surgeon about this prior to breast enlargement surgery.

Pre-operative preparation – Our breast surgeon will discuss the procedure in detail with you during your pre-operative consultation. Click here to read more information on your Pre-Operative care

Incision sites for breast implant placement

Your doctor plays a pivotal role in explaining your options for breast enlargement surgery. Breast tissue, body type and implant type and size will all be considered before you and your doctor finalise a surgical plan.

This is an overview of the most common incision choices your doctor can offer.

Inframammary Incision:

An inframammary incision is placed in the fold beneath your breast. This location can accommodate every size and shape of implant, is often concealed, and is known for fast recovery times. An inframammary incision gives your surgeon the most precise access to where your breast implant will sit after surgery.

Periareolar Incision:

The periareolar incision is performed on the border of the dark skin around your nipple. It is known to have fast recovery times, but does not accommodate every size and shape of implant.

Transaxillary Incision:

A transaxillary incision is well concealed in the armpit and more removed from the breast area, so it is less noticeable. Recovery times are a bit longer and not all implant sizes and shapes can be accommodated.

Our choices of breast implants

You can have your implants placed above the muscle (subglandular) or below the muscle (subpectoral). Our plastic Surgeon will decide which placement location is best for you based on your ideal cup size, goals, breast type and other factors that will help to create natural looking breasts. The location choice will be part of your surgical plan formulated for safety as well as patient satisfaction. We currently use implants that are fully approved by the FDA and come with a implant life time guarantee read more information on our implants

Frequently Asked Questions

Will my breast augmentation surgery be safe?

All surgical procedures carries a degree of risk. However, these risks are significantly mitigated by expert surgeons at Belvedere as we offer a highly professional, client-centred service. Our experience sets us apart from many other London clinics – over the last 28 years, we have provided safe, high quality augmentation surgery to over 3500 patients. All our surgeons are registered with the General Medical Council and are also listed on the Specialist Register.

To offer further peace of mind, our high quality Motiva implants come with a lifetime guarantee. Further details about the breast Implant lifetime guarantee can be found here or explained in detail at your consultation. Contact us today to arrange a friendly no-obligation consultation.

Will I receive any aftercare?

As our name suggests, we are committed to providing beauty with care. Care for our clients is paramount so we do everything we can to make sure you recover as soon as possible after surgery. At your consultation, you will be provided with comprehensive and personalised aftercare advice. In addition, you will be invited to visit the clinic for a face-to-face follow-up session to ensure you are happy with the outcome of your surgery and you are recovering well.

Also note we are regulated and monitored by The Care Quality Commision who continually evaluate our staff, procedures and policies to ensure patients receive the highest level of care.

Is your service discreet?

Having our own private London hospital means we can provide a tranquil and discreet environment for your breast procedure. Because you will not be surrounded by lots of other patients, your surgery will not feel rushed. We value person-centred, discreet care above all else.

In some circumstances, our surgeons may need to liaise with your general practitioner to collect vital medical details relevant to your surgery. Your privacy is extremely important to us, so data will always be stored confidentially.

How much will my surgery cost?

The price of your surgery will depend on the procedure and type of implant used. Because we own our own hospital, we are able to offer a very high standard of surgery, our current breast enlargement cost is £3950.
If you would prefer to spread the cost of your breast augmentation surgery, we can discuss finance options at your consultation. Call us to request an assessment today or fill in our online form and one of the team will call you back. Your face-to-face consultation will be free and there will be no obligation to commit to surgery.

How long do breast implants last?

We use Motiva implants that come with a lifetime guarantee against rupture and a 10 year warranty against capsular contracture which includes replacement implants. We advise on implant replacement every 10 to 12 years for the safest outcome.

What if My Breasts are Asymetrical?

It is not uncommon for women to have one breast that is larger than the other. This is not a sign of an underlying condition, but it can have an impact on your confidence, and make it hard to find clothing that fits well.

The difference is usually noticed in early puberty and may become more apparent as your breasts grow over the course of your adolescence. The good news is that it is possible to correct the difference in breast size by using breast enlargement surgery and using a different implant size in each breast to balance out the sizes to give the appearance of natural breasts.

What If I Have Tubular Breasts?

This condition is characterised by breasts that have a tubular shape, with a very narrow base and very large nipples. This tube-like shape is where the name of tubular breasts comes from. This condition is the result of under-development of breast tissue, and it may affect one or both breasts. Tubular breasts are usually asymmetrical, drippy and very far apart from each other. They are often a major source of distress to women, so there’s no wonder most women who are affected by this condition seek to correct it by having corrective cosmetic breast surgery.

Will having a breast augmentation affect the sensation in my nipples?

The majority of women will regain sensation in their nipples in just a few months of their procedure. While some patients never regain nipple sensation, this is quite rare. When this does occur, the patient has usually opted for extremely large implants. A loss in nipple sensation is also more likely for breast lifts or reductions.

Can Breast Implant Surgery be performed with a Breast Uplift ?

Yes, it can. In many cases, a breast lift is performed at the same time as a breast augmentation. The lift can make the breasts look more youthful, while the implant can increase the volume of the breasts. This process is referred to as an Mastopexy. Combining these procedures can help to reposition breasts that have started to sag. Nipple positions can also be corrected. After the procedure, you can expect more fullness in the upper breast.

What is capsular contracture?

Capsular contracture describes a rare complication of breast augmentation. When this occurs, scar tissue under the skin forms a capsule over a breast implant. This can cause the implant to contract, which can cause it to become hard or misshapen.

The odds of capsular contracture decrease if you choose saline implants instead of silicone gel implants. Our highly skilled breast surgeons are able to deal with complications arising from capsular contraction and will be able to advise on the best methods for rectification if required.

Also note our implants come with a 10 year warranty with regards to capsular contracture including implant replacement.

What happens if a implant ruptures?

We only use high quality Motiva implants that come with a lifetime guarantee against rupture and have a proven low rupture rate. It’s highly unlikely you will have implant failure with these implants but if you do Motiva will provide you with free implant replacement under their Always Confident Warranty®

Will my new breast size suit me?

Thanks to our unique 3D mapping technology, you will experience the excitement of your new breast profile before you have even had the surgery. Our highly sophisticated technology allows you to ‘try on’ various FDA approved implant types and cup sizes for that perfect breast shape before you commit to surgery. This revolutionary technology allows greater control over your surgery and prevents any potential regrets. To try out the simulation for yourself, call us today to book a no-obligation free consultation.

Is a boob job right for me?

Ultimately, this will be your choice. As responsible clinicians who are regulated by and registered with The Care Quality Commission, we insist upon a free comprehensive consultation prior to plastic surgery. At your consultation, we will take a detailed medical history and you will be given the opportunity to discuss your goals and concerns. You’ll also have the chance to simulate your potential breasts and their aesthetic appearance with our innovative 3D technology. Equipped with all this information, you’ll then have the freedom to make the choice that’s right for you. Rest assured, our consultants are friendly and accommodating without being pushy; you will never be ‘sold’ surgery by advisors at The Belvedere.

How long will the procedure take?

Breast augmentation takes between 1 and 2 hours depending on body type, incision points and types of implant. The surgery is completed under general anaesthetic and may require a overnight stay. Our surgeons and patient advisors will be happy to give you further advice based on your individual circumstances.

Will the implants feel natural?

The implants are specifically designed to feel similar to natural breasts. The most realistic feel comes from silicone breasts. This is especially true if the surgeon places the implant below the muscle. This will cause the natural tissue of the breast to be more noticeable, which will provide a very natural feel. It can take time for breast implants to properly settle. While implants might feel unnatural to you as you adjust to them, they should begin settling within a month of your procedure.

How soon can I return to work?

Recovery time does vary between individuals, but this is something your consultant can discuss with you in detail at your appointment. Women with sedentary jobs may return to work within a couple of days, although many people will take around 2 weeks off to recover.

Follow-up appointments are offered to all clients to support recovery and ensure you get back to your daily activities as soon as possible.

When Is It Safe To Exercise Again After Breast Surgery?

Many patients who have undergone breast surgery wonder how soon after the operation it will be safe to resume a workout at the gym. Most surgeons recommend that their patients start walking immediately after surgery.

This is good for blood circulation and helps to prevent blood clots from forming. Nothing strenuous in the beginning, just short walks every hour or two around the hospital room or at home. After two weeks more intense cardio exercises can be done such as longer walks uphill or the use of a treadmill.

After a month most patients can resume a normal workout at the gym, excluding heavy lifting. Generally, patients will have healed completely after about six weeks when all types of exercise can be resumed.

How Soon Can I Fly After Having A Breast Augmentation?

Obviously, it would be a bad idea to hop on a plane immediately after breast augmentation surgery. Whenever possible, you should make your surgeon aware of your upcoming travel plans when you consult with him or her. As a very general rule of thumb, in most cases, it would be safe for you to fly after about 2 weeks has passed following your surgery for short haul flights. For long haul flights we would advise on waiting at least 6 weeks post surgery.  You definitely want to complete your first post-operative exam prior to flying.

Travel plans aside, your first week after surgery is critical. This is when most complications following a breast augmentation become detectable.

The specific answer for you will depend on your general health as well as the details of your plans for travelling. Our surgery team always tries to build up a complete picture of your planned post-surgery activities. Your surgeon will also do his or her utmost to make sure you understand any and all restrictions you need to follow after breast enhancement.

As long as you follow the advice provided by your surgeon, travelling can be completely safe. The following general suggestions will apply in most cases:

* Don’t lift heavy bags while travelling. Avoid even pulling heavy roller bags if possible. This is an excellent time to enlist professional assistance (e.g. valets) to handle your luggage.
* Don’t run, even if you are short on time.
* Stay well-hydrated while flying.
* Have your surgeon’s number close at hand.
* Keep any prescribed medication close as well.
* It is safe and healthy to walk up and down the cabin of the plane if you need to, but move around no more than is necessary. You don’t want to raise your blood pressure.

As to the safety of implants themselves: Do not worry! Implants are completely safe for flight. You may experience very minor expansion or contraction in the shells due to cabin pressure. These changes are temporary and no cause for alarm.

Will I be able to have a Mammogram with Breast Implants?

Yes. Although silicone and saline breast implants can make images on a mammogram more difficult to view, mammograms aren’t something that you should rule out. According to research, mammograms are still an effective screening tool when a patient has breast implants. That said, implants can decrease the image quality of a mammogram. You should pre-advise the hospital of your implants as there are techniques such as the modified compression technique that will allow the radiologist to obtain better quality images.

Can I Breastfeed With Implants?

It is possible for a mother with implants to breastfeed. Whether you will be able to produce a full milk supply will depend on the type of incision that was used during surgery. If an incision was made across or around the areola or dark circle around the nipple, it may have damaged certain nerves. Incisions that are made under the breasts or in the armpits are less likely to cause damage to the nerves, glands, and milk ducts.

We advise on informing our surgeons upon consultation on your plans to breastfeed so incision points and implant choice and placement can be discussed further.

 

What is the Breast Implant Registry?

The Breast and Cosmetic Implant Registry, also known as BCIR, is the creation of NHS Digital. The purpose of this database is to include the details of all breast implant surgeries done in England, either by the NHS or by private clinics and hospitals.

The main goal of the BCIR is to offer a surefire way to trace all breast implant surgery patients, so that they can be found in the event of a product recall or any other type of safety concern related to the different types of implants.

The patient has to give her explicit consent prior to having her details entered into the BCIR.
