Breast enlargement, also known as ‘breast augmentation’, is a very popular cosmetic surgery procedure, chosen by as many as 30,000 women every year in the UK alone.
There are many different reasons that a patient might seek a breast enlargement procedure: you may desire a ‘curvier’ silhouette; you may wish to correct asymmetry (uneven breasts), or you may wish to restore lost volume to the breast region after pregnancy, breastfeeding or weight loss.
If you are considering a breast augmentation, then a consultation with Mr. Ali Juma and Mr. Jamil Hayek at New Image Clinic could be a great decision for you. A ‘boob job’, as it is most commonly known, can have a positive impact on your confidence as well as your physical appearance.
Following breast enlargement, most women feel more feminine, find that their clothes fit them better, and believe that they now have the breasts they desire that are in proportion with the rest of their body.

Frequently Asked Questions
How long will a breast enlargement procedure take?
The procedure involves inserting implants filled either with saline solution (salt water) or silicone gel, under either the breast tissue or under the muscle against the chest wall. It will be performed under a general anaesthetic or local anaesthetic with sedation, and the operation itself will take approximately one and a half hours. Thereafter, a hospital stay may be required, depending on your individual situation.
What are the risks associated with breast augmentation?
All surgery carries with it an inherent risk, which will depend upon your medical history, your age and your current state of health, all of which will be discussed in depth during your initial consultation with our expert surgeons. Further augmentation is likely to be required between ten and fifteen years after your initial surgery, to accommodate the ageing process and possible lifestyle changes; however, this varies between individuals. These will also be discussed with you during your consultation with Mr. Juma and Mr. Hayek.
How much does a breast enlargement cost?
A breast enlargement procedure is likely to cost between £5,500 and £7,000 when you choose New Image Clinic, depending on your individual requirements.
What happens during the initial consultation?
Mr Juma and Mr Hayek will give you a thorough physical examination and discuss your medical history, to ensure that this procedure is safe for you and will produce the results that you desire. At New Image Clinic, we offer a patient experience like no other at this consultation, were you receive the benefits of two surgeons and their specialist expertise in just one consultation.
What is the recovery process associated with breast augmentation?
You should expect to take two weeks if you opted for round implants or three weeks if you opted for teardrop implants to recover after a breast enlargement procedure, avoiding any heavy lifting and wearing a sports bra for extra support as you heal. Confirmed times that you can return to usual daily exercise regimes will be discussed during your follow up appointment with the surgeons, as these will tailor to each individual’s requirements.
