Before and after gallery: breast implants
The before and after breast implant photos on this page are of patients operated on at our practice in Edinburgh. You will get an idea of the different reasons why women seek breast augmentation and the unique issues that affect each patient. In all cases, we try to explain the reasons for surgery, the type of implant used, implant sizes, the position (pocket) of implant placement, and the change in breast size in terms of cup size.
300cc breast implants below the muscle 6 months post op
The patient is in her early 20s. She had long-standing concerns about the size of her breasts which was affecting her self-confidence. She had 300cc round full-profile Motiva implants inserted under the muscle. Results at 6 months.
Breast implants 305cc
This patient in her early 20s had underdeveloped breasts with a conical shape and “pointy nipples”. She had 305cc full profile round silicone breast implants placed above the muscle. Results are at 6 months and the patient has achieved a great result.

B to E/F cup breast augmentation
380cc moderate profile round nanotextured breast implants were used in the patient below. She is in her mid-20s and wanted a reasonable increase in breast volume.
Large volume breast enlargement
The images below are of a lady in her late 20s. She has one child and felt that she had lost volume to her breasts following pregnancy. She wished to have significant enlargement, and we selected 460cc full profile implants based on the use of a sizing kit in the clinic. The implants were placed in a dual plane (under the muscle). Her outcome is shown at six months.
Small volume breast enlargement

Under the muscle implants in a patient in her late 20s
The lady below was lacking fullness in the upper part of her breasts. She wanted a moderate increase in volume with a natural result. She had 310cc round moderate profile implants inserted under the muscle.
Patient in early 20s going from C cup to F cup
This lady in her early 20s chose 345cc round implants which were placed under the muscle. Her results are shown at six months, and she has had a significant increase in cup size.
Breast augmentation C to E cup
his patient in her 20s with no children had 310cc round moderate profile implants above the muscle. She went from a 32C to 32E bra size. She has a natural look and results are shown at six months.
Dual plane round implant breast augmentation
The images below are of a patient who wanted a moderate breast enlargement. 345cc round moderate profile breast implants have been used under the muscle (dual plane). The outcome is shown at six months.
32A to 32D dual plane breast implants
This patient in her late 20s had lost a little volume in her breasts having had children. She had 305cc round high profile gel implants under the muscle. Results are shown at six months.
Breast implants over the muscle
This patient in her 20s wanted a natural look and had 310cc round moderate profile implants inserted above the muscle (subglandular). Results are shown at six months.
Dual plane augmentation and correction of inverted nipples
This patient in her early 30s had some minor breast asymmetry. She wished to have breast enlargement with correction of inverted nipples. She had a dual plane (under the muscle) augmentation with a 345cc implant on her right side and a 310cc implant on her left. Implants were Sebbin round moderate profile implants. Outcome shown is at six months.
Breast augmentation B to D cup
This patient is in her 20s with no children. She had 345cc round moderate profile implants over the muscle giving a natural look. She went from a 32B to 34D bra. Results are shown at six months.
The images below are of a patient who had cosmetic breast enlargement using 340cc round high profile implants in front of the muscle (subglandular)
Tubular breast correction with breast implants
The patient below is in her early 20s. She has had a correction of a tubular breast deformity using 450cc round full profile implants. The implants have been placed in the subfascial (over the muscle) plane. Note the discolouration in the skin around the areolar is due to the use of protective tape (for the scars) when the patient was sunbathing. Scar protection from the sun is crucial in the first six months.
Subfascial breast augmentation
The patient below has had breast implants placed in the subfascial plane. This position is under the thin layer that lies over the muscle. This plane has some of the advantages of placing implants under the breast tissue and the muscle. It is a ‘halfway house’. It can provide better shape and at the same time offer some of the advantages of placing implants under the muscle – namely blunting the fullness of implants at the upper part of the breast. The patient is in her early 30s and has had no previous pregnancies. She has had 310cc medium profile implants inserted.
Dual plane anatomical implants
The patient below had 325cc anatomical (tear shaped) implants inserted in a dual plane pocket. Results are shown at six months.
Minor breast asymmetry and correction of inverted nipple
The breast implant photos below are of an 18-year-old lady who had a minor degree of breast asymmetry (her left breast larger than her right breast). Before surgery she was a 32B cup size and wished to have larger breasts. Additionally, she also had some nipple inversion affecting her right breast. She had subpectoral (under the muscle) breast implants (round full profile) with 265cc volume implant on her right and 240cc volume implant on her left. Her inverted nipple was also corrected. The cup size was increased to a 32DD cup. The postoperative results are shown at six months.
Large volume implants in a patient with previous pregnancies 34A – 34E
This patient below is in her mid-30s had completed her family of two. Before surgery, she wore a 34A bra and wanted much larger breasts. She also had a minor degree of breast asymmetry. Subpectoral (dual plane) breast enhancement was performed using a 420cc implant on her left and a 400cc implant on her right. Results are shown at six months, and her current bra size is a 34E.
B to F cup dual plane implants
The patient below is in her early 30s and requested a significant enlargement in breast size. She had 345g round full profile breast implants in the subpectoral (dual pocket) plane. Bra cup increased from 32B to 30F. The postoperative result is shown at six months.
Breast lift combined with implants
The before and after photos below are of a patient who had a breast lift combined with breast implants (augmentation mastopexy) as a single stage procedure. She wanted her breasts to be lifted but also wished to have a significant increase in breast volume. A breast lift was performed (with an anchor-shaped scar), and approximately 90 grams of breast tissue was removed from the lower part of her breasts. The nipple was moved upwards, and 325cc tear shaped silicone implants were placed under the muscle.Results are shown at six months.
Natural 275cc breast augmentation
This lady in her 40s wanted a small natural increase in her breast size. She had 275cc round sub-glandular (above the muscle) implants. She has a natural-looking result at 6 months.
A to D cup breast enlargement
The before and after photos below are of a patient who had 310cc implants under the muscle (subpectoral). She went from a size 34A bra to 34DD bra size. The implants used were round moderate profile silicone implants. Results are shown at six months after the procedure.
Breast implants and correction of inverted nipples
The patient below underwent breast enlargement and correction of inverted nipples using 310gm Allergan (extra high profile) implants under the muscle (subpectoral) using infra-mammary incisions. Bra cup was increased from an A to D cup. Postoperative results are at four months.
Correction of tubular breast deformity
The photos below are those of a patient who had a one stage correction of a tubular breast deformity. She had an augmentation mastopexy (breast lift and breast implants at the same time) using round silicone implants via an incision around the areola (periareolar augmentation mastopexy). The breast implants are over the muscle (sub glandular implants).
34A to 34D cup size
The before and after images below are those of a patient in her mid-20s who had breast implants using 375gm Allergan TSM implants under the muscle (subpectoral) using infra-mammary incisions. Bra cup was increased from 34A to 34D.
