At Pall Mall Cosmetics we recommend the use of Mentor, the market leaders in terms of breast implants in the UK with both FDA and CE approvals. There is also a range of other implants available.
Your surgeon will discuss the best implant options for your individual cosmetic requirements during a free of charge consultation. If you prefer an alternative brand, the surgeon can talk to you about the pros and cons of the implant and whether it is suitable.
If you decide to proceed with your breast surgery, Pall Mall Cosmetics will arrange for this implant to be selected for your procedure.
Mentor Implant Warranty
Free implant replacement in the rare event of rupture or deflation as part of the Mentor Promise Protection Plan for up to 10 years. You will also receive financial assistance.
Financial assistance for capsular contracture (Baker Grade III/IV), double capsule and late seroma complications for up to 10 years.
Lightweight Implants: B-Lite
We are pleased to be able to offer B-Lite implants. B-Lite implants are up to 30% lighter than other implants and are suitable for women who are active in the gyms or regular partake in other sports. B-Lite implants also often require less recovery time and women endure less pain. If you would like to know more about this option, your surgeon will gladly discuss this with you during the consultation.
How do I choose the size, shape and profile of a breast implant?
Undergoing breast enlargement is an important decision and one that should not be rushed. Part of that decision is to ensure you choose the correct and most appropriate size of breast implant.
Each person is different – a certain size and profile in one person might look completely different in another. Many patients will know a friend or colleague who has had breast enlargement and like their results – again, the implant size/profile they had may not be suitable for you and the look you want to achieve.
During your consultation, your chosen Breast or Plastic Surgeon will:
- Listen to what you want to achieve
- Discuss what options exist
- Recommend what is most suitable for you to achieve the look you are hoping for
- Show you the options and, using specially designed “sizers”, will give you an idea of the end outcome
Many previous patients of Pall Mall have positively commented how refreshing it is that our Surgeons didn’t simply agree to whatever they wanted – but actually discussed the advantages & disadvantages of each option and recommended what was best and most suitable. Some Surgeons at other clinics will just agree with whatever the patient says – we don’t do this at Pall Mall! It is a huge decision for you and it’s important you understand all the options available to you.
As no two bodies are the same, breast implants come in a variety of sizes to suit different shapes and frames. The two most common shapes of implants are round and anatomical (teardrop shaped). Round implants are generally used to achieve a more dramatic, uplifted look with volume at the upper part of the breast, whereas teardrop shaped implants create a more natural, discreet look.
Another term to look out for when considering implants is ‘profile’. This is a guide to how far the implant will stand out or ‘project’. High and extra high profiles will achieve a larger projection whereas medium and low achieve a more subtle effect.
- Implant size is measured in cubic centimetres (cc) not bra cup size. Larger implants mean a larger “cc”
- Implant profile or projection is based on the side profile/distance of the implant from your body
