What is Breast Enlargement Surgery?
Breast augmentation, more commonly referred to as a boob job or breast enlargement, is a surgical procedure designed to help patients gain bigger breasts. As well as boosting the size, the operation enhances the natural shape of the breasts and can also be used to correct different-sized breasts.
This type of surgery involves placing a breast implant either between the breast tissues or under the layer of chest muscles. It is one of the longest-standing cosmetic treatments, as its origins can be traced back to the late 19th century, while modern boob jobs surfaced in 1962 (2). Today, they are a safe procedure that delivers results set to last for years.
Breast enlargement is very popular with women who wish to increase their bust by 1-2 cup sizes (although it is possible to go higher. It is also a top treatment for transgender women and non-binary individuals who seek a bigger chest.
Why choose Breast Implant Surgery?
Every woman deserves to feel comfortable in her skin. While you are beautiful the way you are, a small chest that feels disproportionate to the rest of your body is a widespread cause of reduced body confidence. Studies show 71% of all women (4) are unhappy with their natural breast size. Moreover, the number of women who want bigger breasts is more than double that of women who want smaller boobs.
Breast implants can help women increase their breast size and gain a fuller shape. Cosmetic surgery will enlarge your breasts by at least one cup size. The benefits gained from undergoing this type of surgery include but are not limited to the following;
Breast implants can enhance your appearance while simultaneously improving the way others view you, as well as the way that you view yourself. While it is primarily considered a purely cosmetic treatment, it is also a popular procedure for rebuilding breasts after a mastectomy.
The procedure can additionally help overcome the complications from past botched surgeries or treat congenital issues like Poland syndrome, tuberous breast, pectus excavatum, or scoliosis.
Boob jobs deliver instant results, although you might not be able to enjoy them until the initial recovery period has passed. While breast implants aren’t permanent, their benefits can last for a decade or longer.
What Breast Implants does Mr. Sheikh Ahmad use?
The choice of breast implants isn’t the only key factor that influences the success of your breast enlargement surgery. Nevertheless, you must know that the best implants will be inserted into your chest. Otherwise, an inadequate product could cause complications or leave you with a less-than-desirable result.
Mr Sheikh Ahmad is fully committed to working exclusively with the best products in breast implant technology. Various implants are available to ensure that the right size and shape are selected to align with your requirements and expectations. This includes top silicone and saline implant manufacturers, such as Allergan, Mentor, and Sebbin. B-Lite implants are also available, which are 30% lighter than traditional breast implants.
Silicone implants are the most common solution for breast enlargement treatments in the UK (5). They are deemed to provide a more natural look and are less vulnerable to wrinkling. However, younger patients with a smaller budget and a lot of natural breast tissue may choose saline implants.
Mr Ahmad will discuss the pros and cons of each option and the different manufacturers (they are all very reputable) to ensure that the right breast implants are found. He is also a member of a small group of UK surgeons with expertise in using ADM (acellular dermal matrix)/ mesh in cosmetic breast surgery. It is an internal bra designed for moderate-to-large implants and helps prevent capsular contractures and breast ptosis.
Another common question is “what’s the difference between a round and teardrop implant?’ and it is another area where Mr Amad can help. Round breast implants provide the classic fuller shape, especially to the top half of the breast. Conversely, a teardrop breast implant slopes down from the nipple to the breastbone, providing a natural look. Each has pros and cons, which are discussed at your consultation.
Who is suitable for Breast Enlargement?
Research shows that 92% of all cosmetic procedures are completed on women (7), and it should be no surprise that breast enlargements are the most common treatment. The treatment may be the right choice if;
Breast enlargement surgery is suitable for most women in good physical and mental health. Candidates should be at least 18 years old, as this is when the breasts are fully developed. Meanwhile, boob jobs are unsuitable if you are pregnant, breastfeeding or show abnormal mammogram results.
Consultation with Surgeon Mr. Ahmad
What happens during a breast enlargement consultation?
Breast augmentation may be considered a safe form of cosmetic surgery, but any reputable surgeon will offer a consultation service to discuss the procedure in detail. After all, breast implants are set to have a massive influence on your appearance, mental wellness, and daily activities for several years. You need to be 100% confident with your decision.
Research in America shows that just under half (8) of all patients are in the 35-50 age bracket, and similar patterns are seen in the UK with breast enhancement surgery. Most women who choose this treatment are in their twenties, thirties, or forties.
An initial consultation with Mr Ahmad can cover a wide range of issues. This ranges from checking your breasts for abnormalities and discussing your health to discussing the various breast implants on the market. Ultimately, the consultation aims to;
Breast enlargement can deliver life-changing results to make you look and feel better. But it’s important to remember that the procedure isn’t suitable for everyone, and no two people are the same, and a one-to-one (you can bring a friend for support if desired) will provide the answers you need.Breast enlargement can deliver life-changing results to make you look and feel better. But it’s important to remember that the procedure isn’t suitable for everyone, and no two people are the same, and a one-to-one (you can bring a friend for support if desired) will provide the answers you need.
Preparing for a boob job
Boob job preparations can begin as soon as you have completed the initial consultation, especially if any lifestyle changes are required. Filling out legal documents to confirm that you are happy to go ahead with the cosmetic surgery is needed too. Breast enlargement is an outpatient procedure, so you must arrange for a lift home - or use Mr Ahmad’s VIP limousine transfer services.
After the consultation, you should know what to expect regarding results and recovery plans. While boob jobs are safer than ever, it is also necessary to consider the potential complications. As with any surgery, there is a minimal chance of sustaining an allergic reaction to the anaesthetic (9). As for issues directly linked to breast enlargement surgery, the chief risks are;
Complications are quite a rarity when the treatment is completed by an experienced professional under the right conditions. It should be noted that the breasts will continue to change due to age, although the treatment will give them a more youthful look.
On the day of the surgery, you may also need to wear compression socks to prevent blood clots. The clinic is designed to put your mind at ease, providing a safe and comfortable setting for your treatment.
A look at the breast enlargement procedure
Breast augmentation surgery is completed under general anaesthetic. So, after completing any remaining paperwork, your surgeon will administer the anaesthetic. The surgeon will likely draw on the areas they will operate on for guidance. The UK’s cosmetic surgeons industry has seen a 37% rise (10) in 2022, and all surgeons have unique techniques. However, the procedure itself can ultimately be simplified into three stages
The incision can be made under the armpit or on the nipple, but it is most common to complete in the crease under the breast. Mr Ahmad always chooses the best technique for the individual, creating a pocket to insert the breast implant while reducing scarring.
Breast implants should not simply be inserted. They must be positioned correctly to give your breast the best enhancement for size and shape. The process is almost always completed on both breasts, and Mr Ahamd takes the utmost care to guarantee a natural and symmetrical result.
The incisions must then be stitched using a technique that will aid the healing process. Bandages or supportive wraps are likely to be used too.
Recovering from breast augmentation surgery
Research from America shows that 98% of women (11) who undergo breast augmentation find that the results meet or exceed their expectations. Choosing the right surgeon will enhance your hopes of a positive outcome. Following the right aftercare plan is another critical step that can accelerate your recovery and help unlock the best results.
The initial recovery period usually lasts for around two weeks. You must take several precautions to protect your beasts and avoid potential complications during this time. Most patients are expected to
Your first follow-up appointment occurs during this time. Further sessions are arranged for around six weeks, three months, and six weeks to confirm that your recovery runs smoothly.
Painkillers will likely be needed in the first few days, while many patients continue to wear a sports bra for at least the first month. It may take a few weeks to get used to your breasts' new position, shape, and size.
Should you get your Breast Implants abroad?
Breast enlargement surgery isn’t something many women decide to have on a whim, and it’s probably an issue that has been on your mind for some time. You may have also considered combining your boob job with a few days of sun, sea, and sand courtesy of a cosmetic surgery vacation.
However, a sharp increase in botched boob jobs has been highlighted in recent years. The UK cosmetic surgery sector is one of the world’s best, and there are many incentives to choose a domestic procedure. Some of the most telling factors include the following;
Cosmetic surgery vacations may generate a small saving, but more is needed to validate the quality of care you will receive. An inferior boob job could result in an unsatisfactory outcome, expensive corrective surgery, and various health risks. For those reasons, as well as your peace of mind before and after the surgery, finding an experienced UK breast enlargement surgeon is often the safest solution.

His clinics are based in London (Harley Street), Truro in Cornwall, Birmingham, Exeter & Cardiff. He is one of the UK’s most reputable surgeons and has developed a unique breast augmentation for clients across the country.

Breast implants provide the most natural and durable solutions with a low incidence of capsular contracture or related side effects.
His door-to-door VIP service highlights the level of care provided from consultation to completion and for months aftercare. A limo can drive you to and from the surgery, meaning there is one less issue to worry about.
The initial consultation at the high-quality clinic includes full bio-dimensional planning with 3D imaging (Crisalix). This essential part of the pre-treatment preparations provides a complete evaluation to ensure that calculated choices are made regarding breast implants' size, shape, and enhancement.
Asymmetrical Breast Surgery
Breast enlargement is, unsurprisingly, primarily used to help women achieve a bigger chest. Whether this is to correct proportional issues with the rest of their bodies, boost confidence levels, or look more attractive is a personal issue. However, many prospective patients also ask whether asymmetrical breasts can be corrected through this treatment.
Asymmetry isn’t only about the size. It can also mean contrast in the density of the two breasts (14). In truth, most women live with very mild asymmetry, but more significant differences can cause stress and self-consciousness.
The condition can be split into four types. Types I and II can usually be corrected through breast enlargement with minimal hassle. They are corrected by augmenting one side (in type I) or by reducing one side (type II). However, Types II and IV can prove more challenging and may require multiple procedures - in these instances, the need for an experienced surgeon is even greater.
Enlargement is an effective solution that can correct asymmetry with or without increasing your cup size. Other treatments may be viable too.
Frequently Asked Questions
About Breast Enlargement Surgery
Is breast enlargement surgery right for me?
Breast enlargement is the most common cosmetic procedure in the UK. If you want bigger breasts supported by symmetry and a better shape, a boob job will stand out as the most likely treatment. It can bolster your appearance, self-confidence, and daily life. A full consultation with Mr Ahmad will help determine the right solution.
What do I need to do to prepare for breast enlargement surgery?
Before undergoing breast enlargement surgery, you must confirm it is the right choice. Meanwhile, it is advised that you quit smoking and excessive alcohol consumption in the weeks leading up to surgery. If you plan to lose or gain significant weight, it is best to wait until this transformation has been completed before booking your treatment.
At what age can you have breast enlargement?
In the UK, most surgeons – including Mr Ahmad – will only operate on women aged 18 or over. This is because the breasts are usually still growing until this age. However, many women continue to develop into their early twenties. You should ensure that you have stopped growing before considering a boob job.
Who should not get breast implants?
A boob job is deemed unsuitable for pregnant women, breastfeeding women, and women undergoing cancer treatments. Implants may also impact future breastfeeding, which you should discuss with your cosmetic surgeon. If you want to improve breast shape and nipple positioning, a breast uplift may be more suitable.
Can breasts be enlarged without surgery?
Breasts are largely made up of fat, so gaining weight will probably increase your breast size. Alternatively, push-up bras and other items can create the desired effect for a special occasion. If you want to increase your chest size with significant and lasting results while also gaining proportional improvements, a boob job is an answer.
How much is a boob job?
The cost of breast enlargement surgery can vary based on several variables, including the choice between saline and silicone breast implants, the quality of the overall service, and aspects like the anaesthetic used. However, the size of the breast implants will not generally impact the surgery cost. Mr Ahmad’s prices start at £4200
How long does breast implant surgery take?
Breast enlargement surgery can take as little as 1.5 hours in some surgeries. Mr Ahmad suggests that most patients should expect a procedure time of 2-4 hours. This ensures that the breast implants can be inserted and positioned accurately while wounds can be treated to promote the quickest recovery.
How long do breast implants last?
Following a successful breast augmentation, breast implants should last for 10-15 years before they need attention due to the natural changes that happen to the breast and the implants themselves. However, inferior implants and care during surgery could significantly reduce implants’ lifespan, which is why UK breast enlargement is advised.
What are the side effects of a boob job?
The potential side effects of a boob job include breast pain, bruising, and bleeding. Nipples may become more or less sensitive, and infection and implant position changes are all possible. When a professional surgeon uses the latest techniques, though, the risks are minimalised. Likewise, any scarring can be kept inconspicuous.
