Procedures offered for breast enlargement at Spire Leicester

At Spire Leicester, we offer a range of breast implant types, sizes and shapes 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 less likely to wrinkle than saline implants, 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 than with a teardrop shaped implant
  • 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
  • Eurosilimed
  • Polytech

Preparing for breast enlargement surgery at Spire Leicester

Getting here

We're located seven miles from junction 21 of the M1 and easily accessible from the A47 and A6. We’re a 15 minute cab ride from Leicester railway station.

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.

During your consultations, you’ll be able to discuss:

  • Other alternatives to breast surgery that might be a better option for you, 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. If you decide to have breast enlargement surgery, you may be asked to undergo a pre-operative assessment before your surgery.

Breast enlargement surgery: your procedure

You'll stay overnight in one of our comfortable private en-suite rooms, all of which have:

  • Nurse call system
  • TV/Radio
  • Telephone and WiFi
  • En-suite bathroom
  • Wardrobe space and a small locker
  • Armchair

When you arrive for your surgery, you’ll see your surgeon again and meet your anaesthetist and the team who’ll be looking after you.

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

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