Preparing for breast uplift surgery at Spire Tunbridge Wells

Getting here

We're located in Kent, six miles from the centre of Royal Tunbridge Wells and the nearest station is Tunbridge Wells. We also have free on-site parking available for you and your visitors.

Your consultations

Once you’ve made an enquiry, we can arrange your first appointment within a few days.

You’ll meet one of our experienced cosmetic surgeons in a private consultation room. They’ll ask you about your medical history and why you’d like to have breast uplift surgery. There’ll be an opportunity for you to ask any questions about your treatment and recovery. You can also find out more about:

  • What’s involved, including the anaesthetic and any risks or complications
  • Tests that you may need before surgery
  • How long it will take to get back to normal
  • What support is available

There’s a cooling-off period for two weeks after your appointment. This gives you time to make sure you want to proceed with surgery.

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

Breast uplift surgery: your procedure

You may be able to go home on the same day as your operation. If you do need to stay overnight, you'll have one of our private en-suite rooms. All of our rooms have:

  • En-suite shower/bath
  • Satellite television
  • Free WiFi
  • Telephone
  • Nurse call system

Here’s what to expect after you arrive for your breast uplift surgery:

  • You’ll meet your surgical team and anaesthetist
  • You’ll be given a general anaesthetic so you’ll be asleep for the operation
  • Your surgeon will carry out the operation to lift and reshape your breasts, using the technique previously agreed at your consultation
  • Your operation will take around one to three hours
