The cost of breast enlargement surgery in the UK can start from under £3,500 and rise to around £5,000 in some places, including surgeon fees and aftercare. The precise cost of breast augmentation surgery will largely depend upon the outcome of a personal consultation with the plastic surgeon carrying out the surgery.

There are a number of implant choices available to women considering breast enlargement surgery and the style and type of implant used will determine the cost of the breast implant itself.
Not all clinics include every aspect of the surgery in their quote so it is important to review the quotes you receive thoroughly before committing to surgery. There may be hidden costs or additional charges and it is important to compare your breast augmentation quotes on a like for like basis.
It is strongly recommended you discuss all the options of your breast augmentation with a consultant prior to surgery. We advise you think about the areas of the procedure that are most important to you before selecting the clinic you have surgery with and don't just think about the price alone.
Many of clinics we compare with now offer a range of finance options to allow you to pay for your surgery in flexible monthly installments including the following:
These offers range from monthly payment plans to interest free loans, why not find out more about the variety of payment plans our partners offer by enquiring online or alternatively clicking here for more information.
Sometimes it is possible to get a fixed price package which covers consultation, surgery, an overnight stay and aftercare. It is important to look carefully at this and ask some important questions as there could still be additional costs. Questions to ask include:
A breast augmentation is a cosmetic surgery procedure to enlarge the size of the breasts, usually by insertion of an artificial implant. During the procedure a small incision is made in the breast, into which the implant (filled with either silicone or saline) is inserted.
Recovery depends on the exact procedure performed and whether the surgery had any complications. You should normally be allowed to return home the same or next day with instructions to minimise the use of your arms and chest. You will probably be quite sore initially, but will then be able to resume normal activities within 4-6 weeks. In the long term, these implants then require replacing around every 10-15 years.
As the most commonly performed cosmetic surgery in the UK, breast augmentation using implants is a well-practiced and generally safe procedure. However, as with any surgery there are potential risks, which your surgeon should discuss with you in detail before the procedure. It is also important to research the quality and success rates of your breast augmentation clinic and surgeon. There are also a number of breast implant specific risks, such as capsular contracture where naturally occurring scar tissue surrounding the implant shrinks and tightens.
Furthermore, breast implants, like any medical device, do have a natural lifespan so it is important that you attend regular follow-up appointments and have your implants replaced after 10-15 years, or when deemed necessary by your medical team.
