LONDON, ENGLAND, April 25, 2009 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The Harley Medical Group has reported a rise in breast augmentation surgery, with a growth of 27% year on year. This increase has been driven by a boom in post baby surgery, with mothers now accounting for 60% of breast augmentation patients, making it the third most common type of post-natal procedure.
Angela Fry, 38, from Maidenhead had a breast augmentation after she had her fourth child. She comments: "After each birth my shape changed dramatically and my breasts sagged and lost their shape completely. For me, having a Breast Augmentation wasn't about getting bigger breasts but getting them back to the shape and size that was right for my figure. Having the surgery has made me feel more feminine and given me much more confidence in myself."
Breast augmentation surgery was first performed in 1895 and is today the most popular surgical cosmetic procedure for women. During the procedure an incision is made in the crease of the underside of the breast and the implant is inserted into a pocket created by the surgeon. The result is fuller and more evenly shaped breasts. The treatment takes around one hour to perform and a general anaesthetic will be administered to the patient.
Breast augmentation surgery at The Harley Medical Group costs from GBP4,275. For more information visit the http://www.harleymedical.co.uk.
