The Procedure for Liposuction Surgery
Liposuction or fat removal surgery is performed either under general anaesthetic or under local anaesthetic with sedation, and is often treated as a day case, meaning you will not have to stay in hospital overnight.
The procedure usually takes between one and two hours to complete depending on the area being treated and how much fat is being removed.
Your surgeon will make a small incision in the area being treated before inserting a thin plastic tube called a cannula. The other end of this cannula is attached to a powerful vacuum device which removes the fat quickly and efficiently.
You will need to book in for a free consultation where a nurse will assess your BMI (body mass index) to ensure the procedure is suitable for you. If you are very overweight it is likely that you will not be suitable for liposuction as there are physical limits to the amount of fat that can safely be removed from the body. Liposuction is a procedure best suited for body sculpting rather than weight loss.
The cost of your procedure will be based on your requirements; your surgeon will advise during your consultation.
|Liposuction One Area||£4,332|
|Liposuction Two Areas||£5,132|
|Liposuction Three Areas||£5,932|

Frequently Asked Questions
The breast enlargement procedure usually takes between one and two hours to complete, is carried out under general anaesthetic and may require an overnight stay in hospital so that your progress can be monitored.
Your cosmetic surgeon will begin by making small incisions in the natural crease underneath the breast, in the armpit or the underside of the nipple area. They will then insert the implant either behind or over the muscle and breast tissue to give a natural shape before closing the incisions with surgical sutures. Your surgeon will advise which position will deliver the best results for you. You can discuss the breast enlargement procedure in more detail with your cosmetic surgeon during your consultation.
In most cases our surgeons will use the Keller Funnel in their breast procedures, and at no additional cost to our patients.
The Keller Funnel is an FDA* approved medical device that allows the surgeon to position the breast implant with minimal contact to the implant itself. This means that the breast implant never meets your skin during breast enlargement surgery ensuring it remains perfectly sterile. The funnel also allows the surgeon to make a smaller incision, which means that recovery time after surgery should lessen as the procedure is less impactful on the body.
People choose to have breast enlargement for many different reasons. The procedure is most suitable for and most commonly performed on patients with small breasts, asymmetrical breasts or breasts that have lost volume or shape due to weight loss or pregnancy. There is no right or wrong reason to have a breast enlargement, breast uplift or breast reduction, but what’s essential for all patients is that you do thorough research and talk to your chosen cosmetic surgeon.
Breast Enlargement surgery is not recommended for women who have not fully developed, as the body shape can change a lot, naturally. To have this procedure at The Harley Medical Group, you must be over 18 and in good general health. Your cosmetic surgeon will have access to your medical records too, so they will be able to advise you on whether the procedure is suitable for you. We thoroughly assess all patients, regardless of age so please book a free consultation to find out if you’re a suitable patient.
We use Mentor breast implants, and these come with a 10-year warranty (which includes free replacement in the case of capsular contracture.
Mentor, a Johnson & Johnson brand, has been producing the highest quality breast implants for more than 20 years. They are approved by the US FDA (Food and Drugs Administration) and exceed CE and MHRA testing standards following more than 20 years of clinical data. They are also the UK’s leading provider of implants for breast reconstruction patients.
It’s important to bear in mind, breast implants will usually last between 10 and 12 years, after which they’ll need to be replaced.
Choosing the right size is crucial and this will be a big part of your surgical consultations. The sizes available to you will depend on your current breast size, your build and the amount of loose fat or skin in the chest area.
A round breast implant, currently the most popular style in the UK, looks like half a sphere is no defined top or bottom. Round implants give a full look directly under the nipple area providing the classic augmented appearance.
The CPG implant, also known as teardrop or anatomical implant, is currently the most widely used implant in the world. Teardrop implants have less volume towards the top of the implant and are fuller at the bottom, more closely resembling the look of a natural breast. Teardrop breast implants do have a slightly longer recovery time, but produce a far more natural result, which is becoming increasingly popular.
The only difference between the round and the CPG (teardrop) breast implant is the shape. Both implants have the same unique, patented Memory Gel and outer shell and both come in a variety of projections and sizes. Most importantly both implants are tested to the highest exacting standards.
For the breast enlargement procedure, surgical incisions are made in the most discreet places possible. This means that scarring is minimal and usually hidden in the armpit or under the natural creases of the breasts. Any scarring you are left with, following the breast enlargement, will fade over time until you are left with very faint marks that are barely noticeable.
A high level of aftercare is crucial after any surgical procedure, that’s why you’ll only ever deal with qualified, caring professionals at The Harley Medical Group. From your first free consultation, to the dedicated check-ups following your breast enlargement, you’ll have a committed nurse and surgeon team to guide you through.
As our patient, we will do everything we can to ensure you have a full and speedy recovery following the breast enlargement surgery. Before you leave the hospital, you will be given full post-operative advice, as well as a phone number you can ring 24-hours a day if you have any questions or concerns. We pride ourselves on always being there to put your mind at ease in the weeks, months and years following breast enlargement surgery.
Following the breast enlargement procedure, you do not need to take any long-term precautions, just any that you took before you had your surgery. There are many myths surrounding breast implants and flying for example, but these have no basis in truth.
