In September 2020, the Committees of Advertising Practice (CAP) began a consultation on the banning of cosmetic surgery advertisements aimed at young people under the age of 18. 
 
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.

Following breast surgery, our surgeons at Suffolk Breast Practice will provide you with guidance on how to recover. It is best that you follow your surgeon’s advice, as the recovery process will be suited to the individual and the procedure undertaken. 
 
Our Guide on How to Recover from Breast Surgery 
There are several questions before undergoing breast implant surgery you should ask your surgeon. A breast enlargement (or breast augmentation surgery) can have radical, life-changing results. It is therefore important that you ask the right questions before committing yourself to surgery. If you are unsure of what to ask your surgeon, do not worry; Suffolk Breast Practice offers the top questions to ask your surgeon during your consultation. 
You have just found out you are pregnant, but you’ve booked yourself a breast enlargement for next week. Or, maybe you have recently had a breast reduction and you are worried that getting pregnant will undo the good work. 
 
Whatever the case, pregnancy can affect your breast surgery results. So, what happens if you get pregnant after breast surgery? Suffolk Breast Practice walks you through your options. 
At Suffolk Breast Practice, we seek to educate as well as provide care for our patients. You may be concerned about bumps on your areola, but there is generally no need to worry. These bumps are called Montgomery glands, or Montgomery’s Tubercles, and act to moisturise the nipples. They are present in both men and women and may look like small pimples on the areola. 
The areola is the pigmented, circular area that surrounds the nipple. Darker in colour when compared to the rest of the skin, the areola contains little bumps known as Montgomery glands to moisturise the nipple. You may be concerned about the size, shape, or general look of your areolas. Suffolk Breast Practice can provide you with information to help you understand your areolas. 
As surgeons, our number one priority will always be our patients and if you have had surgery recently, now is the time that you should consider self isolating. 
After your breast surgery, it is important to follow your specialist’s aftercare advice and treatment plan. At Suffolk Breast Practice, we pride ourselves on the highest standard of aftercare, ensuring the recovery process is as comfortable as possible. However, there are several things you can do to aid your recovery. Below, we outline the top 5 tips to stay comfortable after surgery. 
It’s the start of 2020 Breast Cancer is no longer the ‘C’ word that no one uses, with as many as 150 new cases a day. Coupled with AI - Artificial Intelligence which in many respects is no longer a thing of the future and the health care sector is now using both to diagnose. 
At Suffolk Breast Practice, we offer a range of cosmetic breast surgical operations. Depending on what you require, we can perform breast lifts, breast augmentation surgery, Implant exchange and revision surgery, breast reductions, and breast fat transfers. Our surgeons have over 25 years of combined experience working in private practice and the NHS, so we can guarantee you will receive the highest standard of care possible.
