Cobalt Hospital specialises in breast augmentation and breast uplift procedures delivered by our team of leading local Consultant Plastic Surgeons who are BAAPS/BAPRAS accredited, vastly experienced and offer unbiased advice.
Breast Augmentation (also known as Breast Enlargement/Breast Enhancement)
Contrary to popular belief the most common reason for breast enhancement surgery is not simply an increase in the size of the breasts but rather an improvement in shape and symmetry. In fact, most women who talk to our Consultants about breast enhancement want to talk about shape. Fixing sagging breasts or restoring shape and definition lost after having children are two of the most common reasons why women consider breast enhancement surgery. This popular procedure is delivered as a day case procedure whereby you come in for your surgery in the morning and will be recovered and ready for discharge in the afternoon.
At Cobalt we use Allergan ‘Natrelle’ implants (anatomical or round) and they are one of the market leaders and your Consultant will advise on the best choice of implant to get the look you desire. Delivered under general anaesthetic surgery takes between 1-2 hours and involves the surgeon making cuts to the skin to make way for breast implants that are placed over or under the muscles in the chest.
Breast Uplift (Mastopexy)
Breast uplift is another common procedure delivered as a day case procedure for women whose breasts may have begun to droop or sag for a variety of reasons - typically experienced post pregnancy or through breastfeeding. The surgery delivered under general anaesthetic involves the reshaping of the breasts from the removal of excess skin and stitching to reposition the breasts into a more natural or desired position. It is common to have an uplift combined with an augmentation procedure to enhance volume and shape and this is known as a mastopexy augment.
Choosing your implants
Your choice of breast implant is very important to ensure you get the desired look and feel - and your Consultant will help you determine implant choice and size.
Our team of Consultants have access to an external sizing kit whereby they can determine the exact implant type to enable you to get the look you desire.
Under our fixed cost package scheme you can have your choice of round or anatomical implants and size - with no extra costs.
The NatrelleTM Collection
Vive at Cobalt only uses breast implants from the NatrelleTM Collection - manufactured by Allergan one of only two manufacturers that have a CE mark and FDA approval.
The NatrelleTM Collection implants come with the NatrellePLUSTM Warranty for peace of mind.
