Breast enlargement surgery with Mr Hassan Shaaban

Mr. Shaaban worked in the NHS in the field of reconstruction following trauma and cancer surgery. His interest lies in the field of facial, breast and body contouring cosmetic surgery.
Mr Shaaban is a consultant plastic surgeon and is a member of the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS), the British Association of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons (BAPRAS) and International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (ISAPS).

What is breast enlargement surgery?

Breast enlargement surgery - often referred to as breast augmentation or, more colloquially, a boob job - is where implants are used to add volume, shape and structure to the breasts. 
Breast augmentation is the single most popular surgical procedure in the UK, with almost 8,000 performed in 2019 alone. 
While it is an extremely popular and common procedure, however, it is also major surgery and should be well-considered and researched beforehand.

Who is suitable for breast enlargement augmentation?

Every person is different, and so we treat every patient uniquely. Before determining which procedure - if any - is right for you, we carry out thorough consultations to ensure you get the right treatment and feel supported and equipped to make this important decision.

Part of the consultation process is evaluating physical and psychological health, to ensure there are no underlying issues or reasons as to why you should not undergo surgery. While you may have breast enlargement surgery in mind, it could be that you are more suited to a different type of surgery, such as a breast uplift, to achieve the desired result.

Throughout this process, it’s important to look for improvement, rather than perfection. Mr Shaaban will go through every step with you and manage your expectations in terms of what can be achieved.

In order to be considered for breast enlargement surgery, you must be 18 or over.

What types of breast implants are available?

Mr Shaaban only use's either Motiva and Mentor implants, which are some of the most advanced, high-quality implants available.

Not only do these implants come with a life-time guarantee against rupture, both Mentor and Motiva implants have a guarantee against contracture for up to ten years from the date of surgery.


What happens during and after a breast augmentation procedure?

During the procedure, patients are put under sedation by a trained anaesthetist. The plastic surgeon will then make the precise incision to act as a gateway for the implant. The implant is then inserted carefully into position, before the surgeon stitches the area.

Every case is different, and depending on what type of surgery you have, you may require an overnight stay in hospital. ASET Hospital provides each and every patient with a personalised, tailored care package. Once discharged from hospital, you will receive post-operative care instructions and 24-hour access to our team of highly-trained medical professionals, who will be on hand to answer your questions.

From experience, it usually takes around 2-3 weeks for patients to fully heal from the procedure, but it can take longer depending on the individual. Around two weeks after the procedure, you will be checked by a member of the surgical team to ensure there’s no infection and that the wound is healing properly. At around the six week mark, you will be booked in for a second check-up. If the wound takes longer to heal, ASET will schedule regular check-up appointments with you until you have fully recovered.

We recommend patients avoid strenuous activities and returning to work until at least 2-3 weeks have passed. You should avoid physical exercise for at least 6 weeks.


What types of incisions are there?

There are four main types of incision that may be used in breast enlargement procedures; axillary, periareolar, transumbilical and the inframammary fold. There is also the wise pattern option, which is an anchor-shaped incision. Find out more about each incision type below:

  • Axillary Incision - The incision is made underneath the armpit, to allow for an access point for the implant..
  • Periareolar incision - The incision is made around the areola (nipple) to camouflage the scar with the pigmented nipple skin. This is usually the preferred incision if the patient is undergoing both breast enlargement and uplift procedures.
  • Transumbilical incision - This is where the incision is made right above the belly button.
  • Inframammary fold incision - The incision is made under the breast fold.
  • Wise pattern incision - An anchor-shaped incision that goes around the nipple and down horizontally towards the breast fold, and along the fold itself.

Common Q & A on breast enlargement surgery

1.Can I breast feed with implants in?

In most cases women can breast feed after breast enlargement surgery. Some women naturally cannot breastfeed - with or without implants.

As with any procedure, there is downtime associated with breast implant surgery. The recovery process usually takes between 3-4 weeks, but depends on the individual and how well they stick to the aftercare plan.  You will receive detailed information and support from your surgeon throughout the process.

Individual results may vary, but typically scarring will last between 6-12 months before fully healing. The scars will be on and around the crease of the breast, and will be pink in colour before they mature and heal.

Before you are treated, our consultants will carry out a full risk assessment based on your individual health background, in order to minimise risk. 
  As with any surgery, there are risks associated with breast enlargement surgery, but our team of specialists will go through possible outcomes with you before you proceed. If at any time you feel unsure or have any questions about the procedure - be it before, during or after - do not hesitate to contact us at ASET Hospital.

After breast enlargement surgery it is normal to experience some temporary soreness and swelling around the area. Some patients may notice a change in sensation of the nipples. 
Should there be any abnormalities with your case, our surgeons will be to hand. They do not leave the country immediately after surgery is performed. If, on the off chance they are out of the country, you will be seen by another trained plastic surgeon who will go through the next steps with you. 

In the unlikely event of a complication directly related to your surgery, we will provide or arrange further surgery and treatment at no extra cost for up to one year.
