Breast enlargement (breast augmentation)
Do you feel self-conscious about your breasts and wish they were larger?
If you’ve ever wished for larger breasts, you’re not alone. In fact, breast enlargement (also known as breast augmentation) is the most frequently requested cosmetic surgery procedure here in the UK.
Breast enlargement surgery is ideal for women who wish they were curvier. Such patients may be naturally small chested and feel that their bodies are out of proportion. Or maybe their breast size has diminished over time, due to ageing, weight loss, pregnancy or breast-feeding.

I had breast augmentation in July. I researched intensely before choosing Mr Persico and his wonderful team at Canova Medical. From beginning to end the experience was fantastic!! There was so much care given even when I had had my surgery, and the follow on care was exceptional. I was advised which size of implant for my frame etc. and he was spot on, I am so very thrilled with my new assets. The perfect place did my perfect surgery! Thank you all so very much! xx

What else can I expect at the Consultation?
As well as understanding exactly how you want your breast enlargement to look and feel, your Surgeon will assess your overall physical health. Any medical conditions will be discussed and evaluated, to ensure that you are a good candidate for breast augmentation. The Surgeon will also pay particular attention to the condition of your breasts..
Depending on your medical history, your Surgeon may suggest that your implants are placed either on top of your chest muscle, or underneath your chest muscle. (Placing the implants underneath the chest muscle means that they won’t interfere with mammograms.)
What kind of breast implants do you use? And how do I know if they are any good or not?
Canova Medical uses two brands of breast implants. They are both internationally-recognised as being the best breast implants, and both brands offer lifetime warranties. So you can absolute confidence in knowing that your breast implants are the best available.
The breast implant brands offered at Canova Medical are:
- Natrelle by Allergan: This range is so extensive that there are more than 600 breast augmentation combinations to choose from. The variations cover the type of filler used; to the shape of the implant; and the degree of lift. All implants have a lifetime warranty.
- Impleo by Nagor: Soft, well fitting implants that are manufactured in the UK. These implants also have a lifetime warranty. Impleo also has a wide range of sizes and profiles for you to choose from.
How will I know which breast implant to choose?
During your hour-long consultation with your Surgeon, he will listen carefully to your wishes and obtain your medical history.
Based upon that information, he will then be able to recommend the best breast implant for your unique needs. (So there is no need for you to research the specific breast implants – your Surgeon does this for you.)
Canova Medical is independently owned and is not a tied agent of any specific breast implant suppliers. This means we can offer you more than one brand, giving you the best quality products and the results you’re after.
As you can see from our patient testimonials, the Surgeons at Canova Medical are absolute experts in delivering the outcomes our patients look for.
Who performs the breast enlargement surgery?
Mr Maurizio Persico (Consultant Plastic Surgeon) performs breast enlargements at our Manchester and Preston clinics. You can read about Mr Persico here.
Where does the breast enlargement surgery take place?
Your Consultations will take place at our Manchester clinic, where the ambience is elegant yet relaxed. For the maximum in discretion you will never see another patient.
The surgery itself will be carried out a local private hospital. You’ll be given full details at your Consultation.
How do I prepare for breast augmentation surgery?
You will be fully informed about what you can eat and drink before the procedure, and any precautions regarding medications and smoking.
These are guidelines that you should follow to help ensure that your surgery will go smoothly and without any complications.
What happens during the breast augmentation surgery?
Your Surgeon will begin by making a small incision below the breast. He can then gently lift the skin and breast tissue to insert your implants. The Surgeon will ensure that the implants are evenly positioned, and that the nipple will be the focal point – just like natural breasts.
What happens after the breast enlargement surgery?
Dissolvable stitches are used for closing the incisions. A light, absorbable dressing is placed on top, and should remain in place until your first post-operative appointment with the Nurse a week later.
It is recommended that you wear a sports bra for the duration of the healing process, which can take up to six weeks.
Does it hurt? And how long is the recovery time?
There is some degree of discomfort but not severe pain.
Your breasts will feel sore and tender afterwards, with some post-operative bruising and swelling. This will start to improve after two weeks. For this reason, it’s advised that you take seven to 10 days off work (or more, if your job involves lifting and carrying).
The healing process takes up to six weeks in total.
How much scarring will there be?
There will be a very small 2 to 4cm scar on the mammary fold (just underneath the breasts, where your bra sits).
Do you have any breast enlargement Before and After pictures?
Yes, you can see breast enlargement Before and After pictures here. They are all patients of Canova Medical who have kindly consented to let us use their photographs, as they are so happy with their results.
What if I have any other questions?
Please contact the friendly team at Canova Medical – we’d be delighted to help you and answer any questions you may have.
What’s the next step?
The next step to getting the breasts you’ve always dreamed of is to arrange a Consultation. This will last for one hour and will be with the Surgeon who’ll be performing your breast enlargement procedure. He will take the time to get to know you and your desired outcomes; obtain your medical history; and make recommendations based on your specific needs. There is a one-off £120 Consultation fee for surgical treatments.
