Breast Enlargement Newcastle

Breast Enlargement, also known as breast augmentation or ‘boob job’ is an incredibly popular cosmetic procedure that both increases the size and enhances the shape of breasts. This procedure is also used to correct asymmetry of the breasts through differential enlargement.

Breast enlargement involves the placement of an implant under the tissue of the breast or alternatively, under the chest wall muscle (Pectoralis). The insertion of an implant has the effect of pushing the natural breast tissue forward, giving the breast a fuller, larger look.

Regardless of the reasons for your breast enhancement, our team have been helping women regain confidence and improve the way they feel.
