Cost Of A Boob Job

In the UK, cosmetic surgery is on the rise and many women are curious to know the cost of a boob job.

The truth is, when people are searching online they come across so much information regarding breast surgery that it becomes confusing and at times misleading.

Breast surgery comes in all shapes and sizes (literally) and there are many factors that can affect the total cost, such as the location you live, the cosmetic surgeon and extent of your procedure.

It is also common for many women to undergo multiple cosmetic procedures at the same time, greatly affecting the overall cost.

The term boob job is broadly used in modern days to apply to almost any surgery involving the breasts. This means that when one person refers to a boob job as implants alone, will differ from another person referring to a boob job involving implants, uplift plus nipple correction.

Therefore, as you would expect, asking a person how much their boob job was without a breakdown of procedures would be significantly more than enlargement alone.

Boob Job Costs In The UK

Many years ago, women travelled abroad for boob jobs because the cost was expensive in the UK and much cheaper in other countries such as Turkey and Czech Republic.

However, over time the cost of breast surgery has decreased substantially, eliminating the need to travel abroad for surgery.

Through advances in technology and an increase in the number of cosmetic surgeons nationwide, boob jobs have become much more affordable in Britain.

Guide Cost

Although a boob job can vary from patient to patient, the general guide cost sets out an estimated figure that you can budget for and work towards if you are saving for surgery.

Below is a brief list of boob job procedures and their associated guide cost:

- Breast implant cost: £3490
- Breast implant + uplift cost: £6590
- Breast uplift cost: £5990
- Breast reduction cost: £6590
The cost of a breast surgery procedure usually includes the type and brand of implant. However, always check in advance with your preferred cosmetic surgeon what implants they use and why.

It is worth noting that implant type and brand can sometimes be the difference between a good boob job and a great boob job.

The main two fillings used are silicone (gel) or saline (sterile salt water).

In addition, implants can either be textured or smooth, which can determine how much they move and feel. Your cosmetic surgeon may be able to advise you on what will be the best option for you and your body type.

What Else Affects The Cost?

Along with the points mentioned above, there are other associated factors that can affect the overall cost of your breast surgery.

These include:
- Medication
- Aftercare / recovery

During a boob job consultation, discuss your options in great detail and be sure to ask whether the total cost includes medication, anaesthetic and aftercare. When it comes to aftercare all patients are different - some return home the same day as their surgery, whereas others may spend a night or two in hospital post surgery.
In addition, when itemising your boob job quotation, before proceeding be sure to ask your cosmetic surgery clinic about any add-on costs and whether or not the price you have received is all inclusive of everything you need.

After breast surgery, patients often receive an elastic bra that helps hold and support the boobs in the correct position so that they can heal properly over the days that follow your procedure.

It is worth paying attention to the aftercare massage recommendations and how to perform them with as little pain as possible. These techniques can stop scar tissue and assist with the healing process of the pocket in which the implants are placed in.

Is The Cost Affected By Under / Over The Muscle?

In a typical boob job, the position in which the implant is placed within the breast does not usually affect the cost. Although each patient is assessed on an individual basis for recommendations and best possible results. Your surgeon will be able to advise on the pros and cons of implant placement and whether or not the cost will be affected.

Best Place for a Boob Job

In the UK, there are generally two main types of people who opt for breast surgery at some point in their lives; women who have always wanted a boob job and women who have never considered a boob job before until they experienced a drastic change at some point in their life.

For the latter, it is often viewed as a milestone moment in a person's life that makes them feel different about their body than they did previously.

These common milestone events, which are often turning points in terms of body appearance and self esteem include:

- Pregnancy and childbirth (including breast feeding).
- Severe weight loss
- Ageing / Hormonal changes
- Illness

No matter the milestone, changes in body appearance can affect people in different ways both physically and emotionally.
Often people who don't understand cosmetic surgery, fail to see the impact it can have not just on the outside, but on the wellbeing and lifestyle of many women in the UK.

However, regardless of how women arrive at the consideration for breast surgery, the majority of people have two things in common; they wish to improve their physical appearance and boost their self confidence.

So once you have made the decision to actually get surgery, it's time to research the best place for a boob job.

Where is the best place for breast surgery?

When searching for the best place for breast surgery, whether it's a generic boob job (implants), uplift, nipple correction or reduction, there are a few things to consider:

1. Do you want to travel short or long distances to / from a cosmetic surgery clinic?

2. If you are happy to travel further afield, how accessible is the clinic from motorways and transport links?

3. How big is the clinics online presence - social media, website, reviews.

4. Can you read profiles of the cosmetic surgeons who will be performing your surgery?

5. What is your budget?

Once you consider the five points above, it will allow you to carry out extensive research on the best place for your potential boob job.

The reason these points are useful is because the term 'best' is often opinion, and each person has their own individual likes and dislikes. So what is considered 'good' for one patient may not be good for another patient.

Noting the five points above and answering them on paper will allow you to be clear and concise with your decision making.

How to Find a 'Good' Cosmetic Boob Job Surgeon

Finding the best cosmetic surgeon to carry out your boob job can seem like a tricky and daunting task. However, once you have the knowledge you need, it becomes easier to identify a clinic or surgeon that you like.

The following tips can be used as guidance for finding the right cosmetic surgeon for you in the UK:

- Shop around - if you think you have found a boob job clinic you like the look of, don't commit to surgery until you have spoken with another surgeon for a second opinion, or attended another consultation elsewhere. Certain clinics have a good sales pitch that does not necessarily match the care or results that they deliver.

- Attend with a friend - when attending a consultation to discuss your boob job, take a friend / companion or chaperone to allow you to express feelings from another point of view and take in the information you discuss.

- Visit online forums / communities - it's easy to get swamped with information when researching online. However, forums and other communities are great places for reading comments and experiences from real people who have had breast surgery. You can also create your own threads with any questions you would like answering from a patient point of view.

- Speak to real people - research does not always have to be online. Offline research is a great way to hear the views from real women who have had boob jobs in the past. Attend local centres and reach out to community groups in your area.

- Read reviews - from Google and Yell to Facebook and Trustpilot, online review sites are good places to extend your research and read what actual real customers are saying about your chosen cosmetic surgery clinic / hospital. Reviews also come with 5 star ratings so you can get a insight in to what patients really think of the service they have received.

Why You No Longer Need To Travel Abroad For Cosmetic Surgery

Years ago, many women (and men) travelled abroad for cosmetic surgery such as breast augmentation and hair transplants.

Locations such as Turkey, Malaysia and Czech Republic were hot destinations for 'cheap' cosmetic surgery that boasted much lower costs than in the UK.

However, with the advances in medicine and technology, combined with more accessible UK clinics and an increased number of skilled surgeons, the cost of surgery has slowly decreased.

Ten years ago, it was not uncommon for people to consider travelling to parts of Europe and other countries for surgery, this was because, even with additional associated costs - such as insurance and expenses - the procedures still worked out cheaper than opting for surgery in the UK.

But as time has passed, the cost of surgery has become a lot more affordable - including the introduction of cosmetic surgery finance, which allows patients to spread the cost of their payments across a number of years. Thus making the regular payments affordable and inline with their budget.

UK Surgery Vs Abroad

With any type of surgery, be it at home or abroad, research is always advised.

But when comparing UK procedures with procedures performed abroad, it is imperative that you make a true comparison.

This means looking beyond the price tag and considering all factors, such as potential risks, safety standards, aftercare and follow-up treatment.

As every cosmetic surgery procedure comes with potential side effects and complications, you should think about what you would do if something were to go wrong.

In the UK, a cosmetic surgeon has a legal obligation and responsibility to provide aftercare plans and follow-up treatment. Whereas surgeons and clinics located abroad may not.

In addition, not all clinics abroad will have links to the UK, therefore any follow-up communication and / or procedures would result in you returning to the original clinic, potentially costing you more money than you originally intended.

Furthermore, overseas clinics may operate lower standards than the UK, which could potentially increase your risk of infection. Aside from this, language barriers may mean that you do not fully understand the extent of your surgery and any small print attached to it, until it is too late.

Benefits Of UK Cosmetic Surgery

The idea of travelling abroad for surgery is often marketed in a clever way to make it sound more attractive and appealing. Some companies even offer vacation packages that include your surgery and a holiday in one.

However, these companies are not always vetted and it is difficult to distinguish between a genuine clinic and a rogue one. Meaning it is very easy for a rogue trader to take people's money and disappear.

Therefore you should always only trust what you can see and never hand money over without either seeing your surgeon or visiting the clinic where your surgery will be performed.

Having surgery in the UK comes with its own benefits that are often overlooked when compared with surgery abroad. Benefits include:

  • Accessible consultation, where you can meet with the surgeon who will perform your procedure before committing.
  • Know that UK standards are high and often much higher than overseas.
  • Have peace of mind knowing that UK clinics are regulated to ensure high quality care at all times.
  • Less travelling time to and from your surgery, including avoiding risky flight complications.
  • Better communication between patient and clinic.
  • Aftercare and follow-up appointments with professional medically trained staff.
  • No need to have additional insurance (such as travel insurance).
  • Affordable finance by regulated lenders with low deposits.
  • Reduced risk of pulmonary embolism or deep vein thrombosis caused by flying.
  • Speak only with surgeons and other medical professionals. Some companies abroad hire sales men and women to attract 'customers'.

Wonky And Painful Boobs From Poor Breast Augmentation

When a woman considers breast augmentation, they should always be made aware of possible risks and side effects.

However, what many women don't consider is that choosing the wrong surgeon can have devastating consequences.

There are many factors that separate a good boob job from a bad one, including; the type of implant used, the surgical technique and the location of the implant.

These are all factors that a reputable cosmetic surgeon should be able to explain during a consultation providing they have the relevant skills, qualifications and experience.

A recent news story in the UK revealed that one woman was left with wonky breasts and in pain for years due to poor medical practice and low quality implants.

Therefore showing just how important it is to choose a trusted and reputable cosmetic surgeon who has the skills, knowledge and experience to perform long lasting breast enlargement.

In some cases, cosmetic surgeons who are reputable often find themselves performing re-augmentation on many women who have undergone a botched boob job or are suffering with poor quality implants.

Always Choose High Quality Implants

An example of high quality and trusted implants are 'Mentor' implants.

Mentor is one of the most respected and reputable brands of implant across the UK and rest of Europe.

At the Manchester Private Hospital, we use Mentor implants for augmentation as they are flexible, come in a variety of types and are long lasting.

These quality implants combined with our trusted surgeons allow us to perform successful breast enlargement procedures on a regular basis.

What's more is, Mentor is not only a reputable implant brand, but is confident in the products they manufacture - allowing them to offer a comprehensive warranty at no extra cost to the patient.

Botched Breast Reaugmentation

When a patient is suffering symptoms of a botched boob job, such as wonky breasts or pain, then it may be time to make the decision for re-augmentation.

Breast re-augmentation, also known as replacement, is a cosmetic procedure whereby a woman's implants are removed and replaced with new ones.

During this procedure, a surgeon may also remove scar tissue and repair the pocket where the implant is placed.

The good news is that re-augmentation can often be done using the first incision site so that there is no additional scarring.

The aim of reaugmentation is to fix any faults with the previous surgery that is causing pain, uncomfortable symptoms or dissatisfaction.

During a consultation for re-augmentation, your surgeon will be able to advise on the realistic results you can expect to achieve along with tell you exactly what is wrong with your current breasts.

Common issues with poor quality implants include; deflation and ripples, which can be visible at the top, middle, sides or bottom of the implant depending on the placement.

Reaugmentation is also an opportunity to increase or decrease the size of the implants to meet preferences and new goals.

If you have visible symptoms or suspect that something is not quite right with your breast implants, speak with a knowledgeable staff member at the Manchester Private Hospital today.

We understand how disheartening and worrying it can be when things go wrong. However, our specialist team have the knowledge and experience to put your mind at rest and eliminate any concerns you may have about undergoing more surgery.
