Breast surgery

Mr Morritt regularly undertakes offers the full spectrum of cosmetic and reconstructive breast surgery procedures. He regularly undertakes these procedures in both the Private and NHS sectors in Sheffield.

 

Boob job (breast enlargement or breast augmentation)

The most frequent plastic surgery technique for increasing breast size is breast implant insertion. Some ladies who want a modest increase in breast size are suitable for fat injection breast enlargement.

 

Breast implants

This procedure increases the size of the breasts and improves their shape by inserting breast implants. The most common reasons for seeking breast augmentation include a desire to increase the size of a small bust, to match up differently sized breasts, and to improve the size and shape of the bust following weight loss, pregnancy and normal ageing. Breast implants are most frequently made of silicone but variations exist that are filled with salt water. There are many different types, sizes and shapes of breast implants and Mr Morritt will recommend the best implants for each individual patient. Mr Morritt only uses breast implants made by Mentor or Natrelle.

 

Fat injections

It is also possible to increase the size of the breasts without inserting breast implants by using a technique called fat injections (Lipofilling or Lipomodelling). This involves using liposuction to harvest fat from the abdomen or thighs. The harvested fat is then prepared and injected into the patient’s breasts to increase their size.  This technique is gaining popularity in the UK. Only limited amounts of fat can be injected into the breast during a single operation meaning that this is not a useful technique for patients who wish to increase their breast size significantly in a single operation who would be better off having breast implants. It can however be repeated an number of times if patients desire. Mr Morritt has found this to be a particularly useful technique in patients with breast asymmetry where the smaller breast can be increased in size without the need for an implant.

 

Breast reduction (Reduction mammaplasty)

This procedure surgically reduces the size of the breasts and improves their shape. The reasons for breast reduction vary but typically patients have physical symptoms e.g. back/neck aches related to the weight of their large breasts. Other reasons include not being able to find clothes that can accommodate the large breasts and some patients also feel very self conscious about having large breasts.

 

Breast uplift (Mastopexy)

This procedure surgically lifts the breasts and improves their shape by removing excess skin. Sagging of the breasts occurs naturally with the ageing process but may occur faster in patients who have lost weight, or following pregnancy.

 

Male breast reduction (Gynaecomastia correction)

Liposuction alone or in combination with surgery is used to reduce the size of the breast in men. Overdevelopment of the breast tissue in men can affect one or both sides of the chest.  Gynaecomastia is sometimes referred to as ‘man boobs’.

 

Breast reconstruction

Mr Morritt regularly undertakes all forms of reconstructive breast surgery.
