Breast Augmentation Glasgow

For a cutting edge breast augmentation in Glasgow, the specialists at our state of the art aesthetic clinic offer breast enlargement surgery with a youthful lift and great results.

Breast enlargement surgery with uplift (clinically known as breast augmentation mastopexy) is one of our most popular cosmetic procedures because it is a safe and effective way to restore breast volume. It involves tightening the skin of the breasts and adding a silicone implant to give a naturally youthful, lifted appearance whilst also increasing the breast size.

Lifting the breast and increasing the shape and size with an implant can be done in either one or two operations. Most women prefer to have as much as possible done in a single operation. Done well, this is an exceptionally rewarding procedure that pushes the boundaries of what is achievable in breast surgery.

Who is a Breast Enlargement with Uplift for?

The typical patients who are likely to get a good result are those who have had children and would like to restore the appearance of their breasts to look more like they used to with the help of an implant and lift.

Most people are looking for body enhancements that flatter their physique, provide them with a better silhouette, and increase their self-confidence, all while maintaining a bigger but very natural look. Breast implants can do this well when in conjunction with surgical uplifts, often not only meeting but exceeding expectations.

What to Expect from Breast Augmentation Surgery?

Breast enlargement surgery with lifting is a great way to get bigger breasts without the worry of it making your body shape look unnatural. But what exactly does the procedure involve?

Here is a general outline of what you can expect when you opt for breast surgery at our cosmetic clinic in Scotland:

Before the Operation

During your initial consultation, we will talk through exactly what you are looking to achieve, the level of lift you are seeking, the scars you consider acceptable to achieve this, and how much volume you would like to add via each implant.

Any desirable changes in shape will also be discussed.

In order to decide on the best type of breast augmentation treatment for you, we will discuss the cup sizes that you are hoping to achieve and you will select implants based on various factors (implant size and shape can differ per patient). You will also choose between local anaesthetic with sedation or general anaesthetic before you go in for your breast augmentation surgery in Glasgow.

Breast Enlargement Procedure

The treatment technique used for your breast enlargement surgery can vary depending on your current breast shape, what you are looking for (such as the size and shape of the breast implants), and the scarring involved.

The positioning of the breast implants will either be between your breast tissue and chest muscle or behind your chest muscle, depending on what is decided during your breast enlargement consultation.

Because breast augmentation is a surgery, you will have the choice of either local anaesthetic with sedation or general anaesthetic for the procedures.


Breast augmentation procedures can involve different types of scarring, depending on which of the surgical options are chosen.

Most people looking for large lifts or much larger breasts do best with breast surgery involving a scar around the areola, a vertical scar from the areola down to the crease below the breast, and a further scar within the crease. Most of the scarring is therefore hidden fairly well and settles with time.

Some people who want one or both breasts lifted just a little do very well with only a scar around the areola or with an additional short vertical scar below. The breast implants are still placed through a separate small scar within the breast crease.

Recovery & Aftercare

Breast surgery techniques such as breast augmentation with lift are very challenging but, when done well, are procedures that yield exceptional results and very happy patients.

Our state-of-the-art clinic in Scotland ensures you are taken care of, from the very first consultation to the recovery stages. We will arrange a wound check 1 week after your procedure and a follow-up in the clinic after that at 6 weeks, 3 months, and 6 months.

Most women feel up to going home the same day, but you will have the option of staying overnight if you live alone, live far away, if your operation is late in the day, or if you would simply rather stay in hospital overnight.

We don’t use surgical drains in any of our patients. You can get into the shower to wash as soon as you like but should avoid soaking your scars in water for prolonged periods (for example, deep baths or swimming) during the first 2 weeks.

Most of the swelling and discomfort usually settles within 3–4 weeks after your breast enlargement surgery, although it can take a few months to settle completely. The scars usually improve considerably over the first 3 months but will take a year to settle completely.
