Procedures offered for breast enlargement at Spire Elland

At Spire Elland, we offer a range of breast implant types, sizes and shapes. Your consultant will help you choose the best options for you.

We offer silicone gel (soft or firm) implants for a more natural feel that's less likely to wrinkle than saline, with Polyurethane-coated implants less likely to rotate.

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

Preparing for breast enlargement surgery at Spire Elland

Getting here

Spire Elland Hospital is situated just two minutes’ drive from the M62 motorway. Public transport options are available. There’s free on-site parking for you and your visitors.

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.

Your consultations

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.

During your consultations, 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

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 a TV/radio.

If you’ve come with a friend or family member, they’re welcome to wait in your private room while you have your operation.

On the day of your surgery, there will 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 operation, which usually takes between one and two hours, your surgeon will make incisions in your breasts and insert your new implants.
