Breast augmentation, also known as a breast enlargement, is the most commonly requested surgical procedure worldwide. For women who have always been dissatisfied with the size of their breasts or wish for more enhancement after volume loss particularly in the cleavage, a breast augmentation is an effective and relatively straightforward procedure.

Mr Horlock provides a thorough consultation which includes a full physical examination as there are a number of techniques that can be utilised in a breast augmentation procedure to ensure that you get the result you desire. Also, he will assess if there is any drooping or laxity, because inserting implants can make the problem worse and you may benefit more from a breast uplift combined with implant insertion.

Mr Horlock will help you with key decisions such as implant position, either above or below the muscle, whether to have round or tear drop shaped implants and and implant shape and size.

Mr Horlock will make an incision, usually in the crease of the breasts, and the implants are inserted. They can be placed either in front or behind the chest muscle, depending on your frame, body shape, amount of breast tissue and the look you wish to achieve, all of which will have been assessed at the consultation.

Implant choice is also an important factor that will have been discussed in depth prior to going ahead with surgery. Mr Horlock uses implants from Johnson & Johnson (Mentor and Perthese) and Allergan; high quality brands with a good safety record, that come in a wide range of sizes and in both round and anatomical shapes.

By calling on all his skill and technical experience as well as his eye for aesthetics, Mr Horlock is able to provide a bespoke breast augmentation procedure for his patients.
