Breast augmentation seems to be the operation of the week at Exeter Medical.
After the Christmas lull there has been a steady trickle of patients booking in to see plastic surgeons Chris Stone and David Oliver. Breast augmentation has always been one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures, but it does seem as if it’s on the increase.
Currently around 1% of women in the UK have undergone breast augmentation surgery and judging by the patients who have been treated by the Exeter Medical surgeons they certainly seem to be happy with the results!
The secret blogger has some top tips for patients who want to ensure that they make the right decisions and get the results that they are looking for.
Do your homework!
Most plastic surgeons will be able to show you pictures of patients they have operated on before, and they will take time to explain to you all the potential risks and complications associated with surgery.

Avoid clinics that offer you consultations with advisors, nurse counsellors or other members of staff in the first instance.
You are much better off seeing your consultant right from the word go and making sure that you feel comfortable with them and that they understand your goals.
Breast augmentation surgery is expensive; don’t compromise on the quality of service that you get for the sake of a few hundred pounds. Remember, as in most things in life you get what you pay for!
Finally, patients generally want to achieve a natural result. Avoid implants that are too big or that have too much projection as these rarely look natural.
