Breast enlargement: Kate’s story

I have never been able to confidently wear a bikini before - I can’t wait to show off my new figure!
Kate, Hertfordshire

Since a young age, Kate felt uncomfortable with the size of her breasts. She explains, “I was not even an A cup, it was just breast bone. I felt like I had a boy’s figure.” It affected her confidence and after being told by doctors she might still grow, Katie waited until she was 21 until she decided to look into the option of cosmetic surgery.

A number of friends and family had undergone breast augmentation procedures at Spire Bushey Hospital with consultant plastic surgeon Mr Jag Chana, and Kate had been impressed with the results.

She says, “I loved what I had seen and knew I wanted to see Mr Chana. I did look at other hospitals, and there were cheaper options, but I felt they didn’t offer the quality of aftercare you get with Spire.”

On the day of Kate’s consultation, she was very nervous. She explains, “I didn’t really know where to start when it came to sizes, so my surgeon gave me all of my options and guidance to help with what I expected as an outcome. I tried on a sports bra with lots of different implants and came to the decision to go for an E cup.”

Kate was excited about the life-changing decision, but also felt anxious. She says, “I have a terrible phobia of needles, and was extremely worried the day of my operation. Immediately the nurses at Spire Bushey made me feel at ease and completely comfortable, so the experience was not at all stressful.”

Kate took three weeks to recover after the procedure before she was back at work and driving. “The aftercare I received was brilliant. There was always someone on the other end of the phone if I needed them,” she says.

The first thing Kate did after her surgery was to go shopping for some pretty bikinis for her holiday the next month. She explains, “I have never been able to confidently wear a bikini before, and in the past always wore a t-shirt to cover up, so couldn’t wait to show off my new figure!”
