Cosmetic Breast Surgery FAQ

Cosmetic Breast Surgery

What is cosmetic breast surgery, and what are the different types available?

Cosmetic breast surgery refers to a range of surgical procedures aimed at altering the appearance of the breasts for aesthetic reasons or to address certain physical discomforts. The main types include:

Who is an ideal candidate for these procedures?

Ideal candidates are generally individuals in good health, non-smokers, and those with realistic expectations regarding the surgery’s outcomes. Specific suitability may vary based on the type of procedure and individual circumstances, including discomfort due to breast size, dissatisfaction with breast appearance, or conditions like gynecomastia in men.

How should I prepare for a cosmetic breast surgery?

Preparation typically involves several steps, such as:

  • A detailed consultation with a plastic surgeon, discussing your goals and understanding the options and risks.
  • Medical evaluations or tests as advised by your surgeon.
  • Adjusting or halting certain medications and supplements that might affect surgery or recovery.
  • Ceasing smoking well ahead of the procedure to facilitate better healing.
  • Following specific instructions provided by your surgeon related to eating, drinking, and medications before surgery.

What does the recovery process entail?

The recovery process varies depending on the type of surgery performed but usually includes:

  • Taking prescribed medications to manage pain and prevent infection.
  • Following care instructions for the surgical site and any drains, wearing compression garments as advised, and gradually resuming physical activities.
  • Attending follow-up appointments to monitor healing.
  • Initial recovery often lasts a few weeks, with a gradual return to normal activities over several weeks to months.

What are the risks associated with these surgeries?

Potential risks can include reactions to anaesthesia, bleeding, infection, changes in breast or nipple sensation, scarring, and complications related to breast implants such as leakage or rupture. The possibility of needing additional surgeries to address complications or dissatisfaction with outcomes also exists. It’s important to discuss all risks and concerns with your surgeon beforehand.

Will undergoing cosmetic breast surgery affect my ability to breastfeed?

Some procedures, especially those involving incisions near the areolar area, might impact breastfeeding capabilities. If you plan to breastfeed in the future, mention this during your consultation so that your surgeon can consider this when planning your surgery.

How long will the results last?

The durability of cosmetic breast surgery results varies by procedure and individual factors. Breast augmentation might require implant replacement after ten years or more, while results from lifts, reductions, and gynecomastia treatment can be long-lasting, though not immune to the effects of aging, weight changes, and gravity. Maintaining a stable weight and healthy lifestyle helps extend the outcomes.

Is cosmetic breast surgery covered by the NHS or private insurance in the UK?

Cosmetic surgeries purely for aesthetic reasons are typically not covered by the NHS or most private health insurance schemes. However, exceptions exist, such as breast reduction surgery for alleviating significant physical discomfort, where NHS coverage may be possible under specific criteria. It’s important to consult directly with the NHS or your insurance provider for detailed information about what is and isn’t covered.

Breast reduction – Incredible Dr, incredible outcome. Best decision I’ve ever made

I first contacted Dr Omar Quaba when I was looking into breast reduction surgery. From the initial consultation, I knew I was in safe hands. What I liked best, was that Dr Quaba didn’t rush me into making any decisions. He wanted to ensure I fully understood the risks, and also for me to see the scarring that would occur. This was done using a portfolio so I could see first hand what to expect. My surgery was discussed in depth, with Dr Quaba listening to my thoughts whilst being realistic about the outcome. I would highly recommend Dr Quaba and if I needed anything in the future, he would absolutely be my first port of call.
