When clients come into the clinic, our UK trained plastic surgeon with expert knowledge makes a full assessment.
The surgeon establishes reasons sought for surgery and what the client hopes to achieve as an end result.
Activity levels and the amount of fat available is also found in order to establish if the augmentation would have to take place with a silicone implant or the results can be optimised additionally with body fat or by using fat alone.
Breast Augmentation using body fat alone takes place over a number of sessions as some of the fat gets reabsorbed by the body.
A thorough assessment will be done with respect to activity levels, for example, working out or rock climbing.
The level of body fat will be assessed as this will help the plastic surgeon determine where the implants have to be placed and the impact of doing so (see diagram below).
Measurements are taken to provide a more scientific approach to planning and surgery.
It is important for the patient to try out sizes that would provide a realistic outcome, which includes the use of sizers, to simulate the effect of breast augmentation.
We give our patients time to make a considered decision and only once both the patient and surgeons are happy to do we proceed.
