Breast Surgery at Boston West Hospital
Some of our cosmetic surgery procedures are performed at Fitzwilliam Hospital.
You can meet with your cosmetic surgeon at Boston West Hospital and discuss your cosmetic surgery needs. The surgeries are then performed at our sister hospital, Fitzwilliam Hospital in Peterborough.
A breast enlargement, also known as a boob job, is the most popular cosmetic surgery procedure in the UK. This operation makes your breasts larger and creates a fuller, shapelier and symmetrical pair of breasts, normally using implants.
A breast augmentation is chosen by ladies who want bigger breasts, those who have lost fullness after losing weight or pregnancy and breastfeeding, or women who have uneven or asymmetric breasts.
A breast enlargement not only offers you a more voluptuous breast and extended clothing choices but it can also help increase your self-esteem and general wellbeing.
Your surgeon will perform the operation under a general anaesthetic. It takes around an hour and a half and usually involves making an incision under your breast and inserting the implant directly behind your breast for a natural look.
A breast reduction, often known as a mammoplasty or boob reduction, is cosmetic surgery to make your breasts smaller, weight less, and for some ladies it improves their breast shape.
Women may choose breast reduction surgery as their large breasts are causing pain, discomfort and difficulty taking part in sport. Some ladies feel self-conscious and are tired of unwanted attention they receive, whilst others want to enjoy finding clothes and swimwear that fits.
Breast reduction surgery is performed under general anaesthetic. It takes about an hour and a half during which your surgeon will make an incision on the line of your areola and a vertical cut underneath it and then remove breast tissue, excess fat and skin. They will also lift your nipple so that it is in a higher position.
A breast uplift, also called a mastopexy, aims to lift, remove excess skin and reshape your breasts for a raised, pert and youthful appearance.
Breast uplift surgery is often chosen by women whose breasts have lost shape or become droopy after pregnancy, breast feeding and weight loss or due to genetics, gravity or ageing.
Your surgeon will perform a breast uplift whilst you are under general anaesthetic. It usually takes about an hour and a half and involves making a cut on the line of your areola and a vertical cut underneath your areola and then removing excess skin and raising your nipple. A breast lift doesn’t remove any breast tissue.
