Procedures offered for breast enlargement at Spire Cambridge Lea

At Spire Cambridge Lea, we offer a range of breast implant types, sizes and shapes. 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 is 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

We offer a variety of brands that your consultant will discuss with you.

Preparing for breast enlargement surgery at Spire Cambridge Lea

Getting here

We are 15 minutes from Cambridge train station, which has direct links into London's King's Cross and Liverpool Street stations.

There’s free on-site parking for you and your visitors.

Your consultations

Once you’ve made an enquiry, we can quickly arrange for you to meet one of our team of experienced cosmetic surgeons. You’ll usually be offered an appointment within a few days.

During your consultations you’ll have the chance to talk about the type of breast augmentation surgery you’d like, as well as the range of implants we can provide. Your consultant will ask you about your medical history and may carry out a pre-operative assessment.

You’ll be able to discuss:

  • Other alternatives to breast surgery that might be a better option, such as breast uplift
  • What’s involved when you have surgery
  • The kind of anaesthetic you’ll have
  • Possible risks or complications
  • Any tests that need to be carried out before your procedure

Your consultant will be able to answer any questions you may have about your surgery and its results, but there’s no pressure to make a decision. Even if you feel certain about what you want to do next, you’ll have plenty of time to change your mind after your appointment during the cooling-off period.

Breast enlargement surgery: your procedure

Some people can go home on the same day as their procedure. Your surgeon will be able to advise you about this, as well as what to bring with you. You’ll have your own en-suite room if you need to stay overnight, which has:

  • TV
  • En-suite
  • Chair
  • Free WiFi
  • Nurse call system

When you arrive for your surgery, you’ll meet your anaesthetist and the surgical team. If you've come with a friend or family member, they're welcome to wait while you have your operation.

Before your surgery, you’ll have a general anaesthetic so you'll be asleep. During the procedure, which usually takes 60-90 minutes, the surgeon will make some cuts (incisions) in your breasts to insert the new implants.
