Staying on trend is an important part of many people’s lives and the beauty standards of today have amplified the pressure to keep up. With constant access to social media, there is more time and an incentive to compare yourself to others online. This has resulted in a surge of quick-fix fads which claim they can improve your image and overall self-confidence. 
Breast fat transfer, also known as lipofilling has become a growing popular procedure over the years in the UK. Removing the fat from unwanted areas to transfer to your breasts can create an unmistakable boost in appearance. To simply put, this procedure transforms a woman’s breasts from contouring and symmetry to shape and volume enhancement. 
Cosmetic surgery is popular across the world, in many different countries. As of 2019, the most popular cosmetic surgery for women in the UK is breast augmentation, followed by breast reduction.  
 
There are multiple reasons why cosmetic breast surgery is popular. This is because there are many benefits of having cosmetic surgery. We explore the most popular cosmetic breast surgeries and how they can transform your appearance. 
If you are unhappy with the size and shape of your breasts, there are several options available to you. You may wish to have implants to enlarge your breasts. Alternatively, you may just want a breast lift to reinvigorate the look and feel of your breasts. 
Enlarged breasts can affect a person’s self-esteem, body image, and health. Thankfully, breast reductions can provide lasting benefits for patients who are unhappy with their large breast size.

You may be considering going abroad for surgery. Perhaps because the surgery is not available on the NHS or you are put off by the prices charged by private clinics.

Having surgery is an incredibly important decision that can give you life changing results. That is why surgeons have a duty to be responsible and ethical in their application. At Suffolk Breast Practice, our patients’ welfare is at the heart of our service. 
 
We understand the cosmetic and psychological benefits of surgery for patients, as well as the risks. It is vitally important that surgeons recognise their responsibility, particularly with regards to people below the age of 18 who may seek cosmetic surgery as a solution to their body anxieties.

Having surgery can be daunting and exciting at the same time. It is an experience that can offer life-changing results. However, have you considered what to do should your breast surgery go wrong? 
Most of us assume that breast cancer won’t happen to us. It is out of the realm of possibility, it seems. We live our lives, have our ups and downs, but nothing as terrible as cancer could possibly affect us. It is a fantasy we happily engage in. It makes us feel safe and secure. 
 
Yet, by ignoring the threat of breast cancer, we may do more harm than good. Of course, we shouldn’t live our lives worrying to the point of anxiety. But it is incredibly important that we understand the signs and symptoms of breast cancer to catch it in time.
