What is a boob job? According to the Cambridge dictionary, a boob job is – “to have an operation to change the shape of the breasts, usually to make them larger:”
Wikipedia, on the other hand have chosen to redirect ‘boob job’ to ‘Breast Implant’.
We often get asked for consultations for a boob job and in many cases this means that patients want an increase in the size of their breasts. An increase in size is called a Breast Augmentation. This is acheived using a breast implant.
On other ocassions the patient is seeking a breast uplift. This is called a Breast Mastopexy from the Greek αστός mastos “breast” + -pēxiā “affix”. This treatment is aimed at ‘lifting’ sagging breasts.
Combined Breast Surgery
Another option is to combine an uplift with an increase in size. This is called an Augmentation Mastopexy.
At La Belle Forme, we also offer Breast Reduction surgery for patients who require this treatment.
All procedures are carried out by our Consultant Plastic Surgeons.
