Procedures offered for breast enlargement at Spire Alexandra

At Spire Alexandra, we offer a range of breast implant types, sizes and shapes – all in a variety of brands. Your consultant will help you choose the best options for you.

Types of implant:

  • Silicone gel (soft or firm) – for a more natural feel that are less likely to wrinkle, with Polyurethane-coated implants less likely to rotate
  • Saline – may be more prone to wrinkling than silicone but lower risk of complications if they rupture

Shapes available:

  • Teardrop shape – you can choose the height and width separately, so there’s more flexibility with the shape
  • Round shape – a greater volume at the top
  • Projection – choose how much the implant sticks out to give a subtle or a more obvious look

Brands that we offer include:

  • Allergan
  • Nagor
  • Mentor

Preparing for breast enlargement surgery at Spire Alexandra

Getting here

You'll find us approximately eight miles from Maidstone and five miles from Chatham. The nearest railway station is Chatham, a 10 minute taxi journey away.

We also have on-site parking that’s free for you and your visitors.

Your consultations

Once you’ve contacted us, we’ll be able to arrange your first appointment within a few days.

You’ll be able to meet one of our experienced cosmetic surgeons in a private consultation room. There’ll be an opportunity to discuss:

  • The type of breast augmentation procedure that you’d like to have and the different implant options that are available to you
  • Your medical history
  • Any other surgery you might want to consider as an alternative to breast augmentation, such as breast uplift, as this might be a better option for you
  • The kind of tests you’ll need to have before the procedure
  • What’s involved in having the surgery, including the anaesthetic, and any risks and complications
  • Any other questions or concerns you may have about your surgery and what happens afterwards

You won’t be put under pressure to make any decisions straight away. Your consultant will explain that even if you feel sure about what you’d like to do next, there’s at least a two week cooling-off period before the operation in case you change your mind.

Before you go ahead with the operation, you may need to have a pre-operative assessment.

Breast enlargement surgery: your procedure

Your surgeon will be able to explain how long you’re likely to stay in hospital and what you need to bring with you. In some cases, you may be ready to go home on the same day as your procedure. If you need to stay overnight, you’ll have your own private en-suite room with all the comforts you’d expect at home, including:

  • TV
  • En-suite bathroom
  • Window
  • Armchair
  • Wardrobe

On the day of your surgery, there’ll be a chance to meet your anaesthetist and surgical team. Before the procedure, you’ll have a general anaesthetic so you'll be asleep during the procedure.

During the operation, which usually takes between one and two hours, your surgeon will make incisions in your breasts and insert your new implants.

If you've come with a friend or family member, they're welcome to wait in our lounge or restaurant while you have your operation.
