Four of the breast cosmetic surgery procedures

Breasts are an important part of a woman's anatomy. That's why many ladies go under the knife to have their chest improved - but what are they having done? Let's find out:

Breast enlargement
Did you know that breast enlargement procedures are the most popular type of cosmetic surgery in the UK? That's right, according to figures by The British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAPPS), 10,003 women had their boobs enhanced during 2011 alone – with numbers up by 6.2 per cent year-on-year.

There are many ways a breast enlargement can be done, but typically an implant is entered via a small incision underneath the breast. The nipple is readjusted if necessary and the patient is carefully monitored as they enter the recovery stage. Sometimes implants are entered via the armpit or through the belly button, but this can differ from person-to-person.

Breast reduction surgery
While many women want a bigger bust, others long for breast reduction surgery at a reputable clinic. Why? Well because big boobs can cause many problems including backache, poor posture, shoulder pain, excessive sweating and skin irritations. Breasts can also react to hormonal changes and can increase in size during pregnancy or the menopause and this can leave a woman feeling top-heavy.

During a breast reduction procedure fat, glandular tissue and skin are removed from the breasts, which are then reshaped. The nipples are repositioned to be in line with the middle of the upper arm and the wounds are left to heal. There may be some scarring, but this should fade with time if the right aftercare is given. It's important to remember that breast size also alters with body weight, so bosoms can continue to grow post-surgery if the patient's weight increases.

Breast uplift
Believe it or not, many women in the UK suffer from saggy or droopy breasts. Age, having babies and losing weight can all have an effect on your chest, so it's worth seeking help if you're worried. While surgical techniques can differ, excess skin is usually removed from underneath the breast or around the areola. The skin is then tightened to create a firmer cone of breast tissue and the nipple is repositioned to give your boobs a perkier, more youthful appearance.

Worried about surgery? Then it's essential to buy a bra with the right cup size and strap support. You should also wear a sports bra while exercising to ensure that everything is kept under control.

Nipple correction
Do you have inverted or enlarged nipples? If so, there's no need to fear as a simple surgical procedure could improve your confidence. As with most breast surgeries there are different techniques used, but inverted nipples are usually kept in place with a few stitches until they have healed. The price of nipple correction surgery depends on what you're having done, so why not find out more today?
