Breast Augmentation
Breast Augmentation is one of the most popular aesthetic procedures. It is often sought by women seeking a larger bust or cleavage, or following changes in their breasts after breast-feeding.

We carefully assess your needs and your anatomy at Plastic Surgery W1 and advise you accordingly. There are a number of incision sites where the scars can be placed. We can decide together which is most suitable for you and your lifestyle.

We invite you to spend time with our Aesthetic Nurse, choosing the right implants for you at your second appointment. we offer a large range of sizes, styles and manufacturers. For government guidance on silicone implants please click here.
