The beauty of the female breast is often defined by its shape and firmness. Usually, women who are self-conscious and unhappy with their breast shape and size due to different reasons such as volume loss after pregnancy, genetics, or following other breast surgery, do seek breast enhancement. Indeed, breast augmentation is a cosmetic surgery procedure designed to increase the size of the breast. Our experience has shown that it is one of the most successful and rewarding cosmetic operations done at the Centre for cosmetic surgery.

A Brief History of Breast Augmentation
The breast augmentation surgery in England, and the rest of the world has been around for many years. In the 1920s, procedure consisted in injecting fat tissue into the breasts. This technique was proven unsuccessful as the grafted fat did not survived, and was instead absorbed. This type of breast enhancement was abandoned about 20 years later. In the same time, the injection of silicone as well as the insertion arose as other popular methods of breast augmentation. These were also abandoned as lot of women experienced serious complications.
The silicone implant for the breast, which is used today can be traced back to the early sixties, when a finally a safer implant for breast enlargement was discovered. It is a fact that the structure and design of the first implants may were not as strong, and as long lasting as today's, they were also made out of a silicone shell, filled with a saline solution or silicone gel.
