The Harley Medical Group Reports Boom In Pre-Wedding Breast Enlargement

The Harley Medical Group has reported that, with the wedding season at its peak, there has also been a corresponding significant rise in breast augmentation surgery.

Determined to look perfect on their big day, brides are taking the plunge and booking in for a boob job for additional confidence on their big day. As a result, breast enlargement is top of the ops this summer across the Group’s 30 clinics in the UK and Ireland.

Liz Dale, Director, The Harley Medical Group, commented, “The big wedding is certainly in vogue in 2010, so pre-wedding procedures are right back on the agenda, with the lucky couples determined to have a picture perfect record of their special day.

“With the average wedding costing nearly £20,000, patients see cosmetic procedures as a long term investment, with the effects of plastic surgery lasting well beyond the big day itself. The average pre-nup nip budget is around £4,000 and is favoured by those plumping for long engagements – we recommend patients allow a good four to six months recovery time to ensure the best results on their wedding day.”

Lisa Littlehales, Nurse Counsellor and Clinic Manager at The Harley Medical Group commented, “The split of brides to grooms having pre-wedding surgery is around 75% to 25%. For women their figure is definitely the focus – it is all about the dress, after all. The men we see are frequently looking to correct a sporting injury, so things like having rhinoplasty on a broken nose.”

Saline and Silicone Breast Enhancement: Which One Should Patients Choose?

Patients interested in undergoing breast enhancement surgery will eventually make the choice between saline and silicone implants. There was some concern surrounding saline implants in the 1990s over health issues in women. However, after extensive research and testing, there was no connection established. Currently, doctors and patients still have a choice between the two materials, and while the physician may make a recommendation, patients still need to consider the pros and cons of each to make their decision.

Saline and Silicone Breast Enhancement: Which One Should Patients Choose?

Made of a silicone shell and filled with non-toxic silicone gel, the manufacturer fills silicone implants to a specific size and seals them. The outer shell is available in a number of different textures, sizes, shapes, colours, and thicknesses to help doctors produce results as close to natural tissue as possible. It’s important to note, however, that this style requires a large incision below the breast for installation, and once in place, are not adjustable.

Saline implants are made from the same shell as silicone breast implants, but are filled with saline solution (saltwater) instead of silicone gel. These may come prefilled by the manufacturer, or unfilled, which are installed using a small incision in the belly button, around the areola, under the arm, or under the breast. Once in place, the doctor fills them to the desired size and seals them. Adjustments can be made to the firmness and size afterward with a minor surgery.

idPatients Now Choose Between Saline and Silicone Breast Enhancement

Patients wanting to improve their bust line will eventually need to choose between saline and silicone breast enhancements. In the 90s, there were some concerns raised that silicone implants were tied to health issues, but years of extensive research and testing could find nothing. This means that, while doctors may recommend one or the other for specific reasons, patients will still need to weigh the pros and cons of choice and make the final decision.

idPatients Now Choose Between Saline and Silicone Breast Enhancement

Silicone breast implants are made of a silicone rubber shell filled by the manufacturer to a specific size with non-toxic silicone gel. They come with various shell types, volumes, colours, shapes, and thicknesses to help physicians make them appear as natural as possible. However, it’s important to note that this variety is not adjustable and requires a larger incision below the breast because they are prefilled.

With the same outer shell as silicone implants, saline devices are filled with a saline solution, which is better known as a saltwater solution. They can come prefilled by the manufacturer to a specific size, or they can come deflated.

The deflated versions are favoured because they can be placed through the belly button, under the arm, around the areola, or under the arm through a small incision. This provides plastic surgeons with a number of options to hide the incision. Then, physicians can fill them to the correct size and firmness. Adjustments can then be made at any time through a minor surgery.

Patients do state the saline implants feel harder than normal and have a texture that resembles a water balloon. To help offset this effect, however, new surgical techniques have made it possible for plastic surgeons to set the implant behind the chest muscle in addition to overfilling it slightly.

Plastic surgery experts warn patients that there are risks involved with this procedure, regardless of the implant chosen. Permanent damage, infection, excess scar tissue, breast pain, and the need for additional surgeries are just a few of these risks. Both materials are also at risk for leakage. A leak in saline implants, however, is almost instantly noticeable while silicone implants are difficult to see because the gel leaks and collects in the surrounding tissue. Silicone and saline implants can also interfere with the detection of breast cancer and dense tissue.

She’s Never Been Shy About Her Achievements, And Aisleyne Horgan-Wallace Now Has A Lot More To Be Proud Of

Now a published author, everyone’s favourite Big Brother glamour girl has sought help from The Hospital Group cosmetic surgeons to boost her profile – with a breast enlargement, more commonly known as a boob job.

Aisleyne, who has recently turned 30, said: “You hear of people booking in for surgery and not getting the look they wanted, and that was me before.

“I just wanted to get the shape sorted out. My boobs were sitting quite far apart so I wanted something which gave me much more of a cleavage.

“I definitely don’t want them massive like Jordan or super-pert like Victoria Beckham, just something natural which is going to look good in a dress.”

Aisleyne turned to the UK’s leading surgery provider to improve the shape and size of her D-cups, which were increased to an E by the surgeon at the Bromsgrove-based exclusive clinic.

The Hospital Group, the leading uk cosmetic surgery provider, perform a wide range of aesthetic procedures in 19 specialist clinics across the country and the main Dolan Park hospital in Bromsgrove is the largest surgery-dedicated unit in Europe.

Since The Hospital Group was established in 1992, it has risen to become the UK’s biggest weight loss surgery provider, performing more gastric procedures last year than the NHS. The Hospital Group is committed to providing the very highest standards and all procedures are performed by an expert medical team in state-of-the-art facilities that are second to none.
