A natural breast in women is composed of three main components that sit above the chest wall: skin, fat, and glandular breast tissue (milk ducts and milk-producing glands).
The best candidates are women who have all the information, fully understand what the surgery involves and its limitations, and who have a realistic expectation. Besides fundamentally improving confidence, self-esteem and body image, common reasons for Breast Augmentation are:
The benefits of surgery at London Lipo Institute may include:
Limitations of surgery:
Dr. Perrone will discuss with you all the possibilities that are appropriate for your body, and determine what is the best implant approach for your breasts and personal goals.
The decision to have Breast Augmentation is a major step for most women and extremely personal. Dr. Perrone therefore always guides and supports his prospective patients through every stage of this process. During an initial consultation at our clinic, you will discuss your reasons for wanting Breast Augmentation and will undergo a thorough medical check-up.
Many different techniques, many options. One is right for you.
At the London Lipo Institute a number of factors, such as breast implant size, shape, composition and placement will be carefully chosen to create the perfect breast size and shape for your body type. Prior to your consultation, we recommend that you prepare photos of cosmetic results in other patients that approximate your personal goals. This will give Dr. Perrone a better understanding of exactly what sort of breast enhancement you are looking for. For this purpose, there are numerous websites that show Before and After photos of Breast Augmentation patients.
Key points to remember:
What is breast profile?
The profile of a breast implant refers to how much the implant protrudes forward from your chest wall.
A low profile implant is very flat, while a higher profile implant will protrude forward (stick out) from your body and create a more prominent breast.
While some patients prefer the bubbly appearance of high profile implants, those wishing for a more natural look should choose a medium plus profile implant.
Choosing the right size breast implant will probably be the most important and difficult decision you will need to make prior to surgery.
During your consultation, Dr. Perrone will determine and recommend the right implant to fit your existing proportions, a method known as Dimensional Breast Augmentation; you might instead decide to choose a size that goes beyond what has been suggested.
Dr. Perrone will also evaluate your existing breast tissue to determine if you have sufficient tissue to cover and hide your chosen implant size.
If the size you have chosen is too big, the implant edges may become visible following your surgery.
Breast implants can be Round or Shaped (also known as Anatomic, Teardrop or Contoured implants).
Although Shaped implants provide a more natural, teardrop shape to the breasts, the vast majority women prefer the upper fullness (upper pole) provided by Round implants.
Breast implants can be placed over the chest muscle (sub-glandular) or under the chest muscle (sub-muscular).
The position of the implant above or below the muscle will influence the final appearance of your breast enhancement. Going over the muscle is less painful and has a quicker recovery, but is associated with a slightly greater risk of Capsular Contracture and increased implant visibility.
Going under the muscle has the added benefit of giving a more natural look, particularly in thinner patients with small breasts
|More rounded, bubbly look||More natural look|
|Surgery and recovery are shorter||Surgery and recovery may be longer|
|Recovery is less painful||Recovery is more painful|
|More visible and palpable implants||Implants are less visible and palpable|
|More difficult mammograms||Mammograms are easier|
|Not recommended in thin patients||Preferable in thin patients|
Finding the right surgeon and choosing the best implants for your body are the core choices when it comes to Breast Augmentation surgery.
At London Lipo Institute, our unique approach to Breast Augmentation will ensure that your whole experience, from the moment of your first consultation with Dr. Perrone, right through to your full recovery after surgery, is as positive and comfortable as it can be. Individualised planning, meticulous surgical technique, careful monitoring and post-surgical care all combine to ensure that we offer you the best possible long-term results for your breast enhancement.
As with any surgical procedure, no matter how routine, Breast Augmentation is associated with potential complications. At the London Lipo Institute we take many safeguards during surgery to minimise your risk of developing problems and ensure the best possible recovery. Although extremely rare, thereafter, complications with breast implants can occur weeks, months or even years later and include:
Most patients at the London Lipo Institute have no problems with their implants and continue to enjoy having the breasts they have always desired. Current generation implants are made from an extremely durable silicone shell to decrease the risk of implant leakage or rupture. In the case of silicone-filled implants, the amount of silicone released across the shell (silicone-gel bleed) is limited to:
However, if any breast implant is found to be defective (leak or rupture), since all our implants come with a lifetime warranty, you will receive a brand new implant to replace the damaged one.
Alternatives to breast implant augmentation may include:

I had neck/jaw Lipo on Friday evening 16/10/15 after wanting it done since I was 16 as I have never had a jaw line or definition in my neck as always had a slope.The team have been absolutely fantastic. First of all arranging it on a Friday evening so I could have longer to recover over the weekend so I can go back to work on Monday. The communication from everyone has been fantastic. The procedure was great (If you can say great about a tube sucking out fat from your neck!). But seriously made me feel such at ease, comfortable and felt in such safe hands. The surgeon was so meticulous and careful which was great as the neck and jaw are visible to all. I was given a number of one of the surgeons whom I could contact if I had any queries or problems and also Michelle's contact details. This I must say has been extremely helpful. Seriously would not get that kind of patient care and attention anywhere I know and from anywhere I know of people have gone to. Great price, great customer care and attention and great professional and qualified team. Thank you to you all, it really means so much to me, its a massive life changer for me and I have all of you to thank for that! :)
