Breast enlargement: Tara’s story
I was given lots of guidance and information and there was always support available if I needed it
Tara, 25, Southampton
Having had twins at a very young age, Tara became increasingly unhappy with how her chest looked. She explains, “Childbirth really affected my breasts, and even though I was never big before, I decided I wanted to have something done about it.”
Tara (25) owns her own hairdressing business, so led an extremely busy life when her children were young. When they turned 11 she felt it was the right time to do something for herself.
Tara had spoken to colleagues and friends who had undergone successful breast augmentation at Spire Southampton Hospital. She says: “I had no problem in choosing where I would go as I’d heard such good things about Spire and was really impressed with the results I’d seen from friends and colleagues.”
Tara underwent a breast augmentation in July 2014 with consultant plastic surgeon Mr Mansoor Khan, which took her from an A cup to a DD. Tara says, “I was clear to Mr Khan I didn’t want huge breasts, I wanted them to look very natural so no one would guess they were implants.”
The procedure took approximately one and a half hours and Tara was well enough to go home to recover the following day. She says, “I was given lots of guidance and information to go home with, so I knew how to take care of myself and there was always support available if I needed it.”
It took Tara a week and a half before she felt back to normal. As the procedure was less than two months ago, she is still in the late stages of recovery: “I’m still living in sports bras, but am looking forward to wearing the nice clothes and pretty underwear that I’ve always wanted to.”
