Breast augmentation (breast enlargement/enhancement) is one of the commonest cosmetic surgical procedures in the world. It aims to increase the size of the breasts but the procedure can also be suitable to correct asymmetry of the breasts through an enlarging technique. Breast augmentation surgery involves the placement of a breast implant (prosthesis) either behind the breast tissue (subglandular/subfascial pocket) or partially under the pectoralis muscle (dual plane or submuscular pocket). The insertion of an implant will make the breast appear larger and fuller. Mr Banwell is a specialist in breast augmentation and would be happy to discuss your aims and objectives with you – we believe in a bespoke approach to all breast enhancement surgeries using either implants alone, fat transfer alone or a combination of both (Mr Banwell’s hybrid HYBA technique).

RAPID RECOVERY AND SMALL SCARS
Bilateral breast augmentation (BBA) surgery is now evolving rapidly with equipment developments, advances in anaesthesia, surgical technique modifications and the availability of the latest generation implants which offer an unrivalled safety profile. Mr Banwell has been at the forefront of this evolution and offers a comprehensive service to his patients. He is also passionate about sharing knowledge and is involved in teaching the next generation of plastic surgeons.
One of the main benefits of these advances is that the recovery phase following breast augmentation has accelerated and we are performing surgery through smaller scars whilst still creating beautiful breasts.
PATIENT SAFETY AND AFTERCARE
We take our responsibilities very seriously indeed and hope, with careful discussion, that we can achieve your desired outcome. We believe in being transparent and honest during your surgical journey and will highlight our thoughts to you in person and by email. Your safety is also of paramount importance to us and thus Mr Banwell only works in high quality, CQC recognised establishments, with resident medical officer backup and a track record of safe practice. All his anaesthetists, similarly, are consummate professionals at the top of their game and thus you will be in the very best hands. The implants that Mr Banwell uses also have, perhaps, the most comprehensive warranty available. You will be seen several times following your surgery by the excellent nursing staff as well as by Mr Banwell, a BAAPS recognised surgeon. Please remember that we also offer a lifelong follow up policy for all our breast surgery patients – a unique approach.
BESPOKE APPROACH TO BREAST AUGMENTATION
We really do care about giving you a superb patient journey through the Practice, providing you with a first class service. We try to provide as much written information as possible and Mr Banwell will also explain your bespoke treatment plan to you given your pre-existing anatomy and the type of augmentation you would like (be with implants alone, fat alone or using hybrid techniques). Providing you with a wealth of information and a beautiful surgical outcome should have an immense physical and psychological benefit. We look forward to welcoming you for a consultation soon!

CRISALIX 3D BREAST SCANNING UK CENTRE OF EXCELLENCE
Mr Banwell’s practice is one of the premier Crisalix 3D scanning centres in the UK and all patients interested in breast augmentation using Motiva Breast Implants alone, fat transfer alone or Mr Banwell’s HYBA technique combining both, are offered this analysis to help confirm the treatment plan for surgery. One of Mr Banwell’s team will perform the scan prior to you meeting Mr Banwell and this will then often be used to discuss your anatomy (and any variants) and examples of different type of implants. Click here for a link to Mr Banwell’s page on the Crisalix website. As part of the Crisalix Community you are also able to share images that will be emailed to you to ask opinions of friends and family if you so wish.
ENDOSCOPIC ASSISTED TRANSAXILLARY ‘SCARLESS’ BREAST AUGMENTATION
Mr Banwell also occasionally offers the Nordquist ‘scarless’ breast augmentation procedure in selected candidates. The endoscopic-assisted transaxillary approach via the armpit is offered in Mr Banwell’s practice in East Grinstead near Gatwick Airport. Mr Paul Banwell has been personally trained by Dr Nordquist (in a surgical preceptorship in Sweden) in this novel technique which does not leave any scars on the breast. The use of Motiva Implants has also facilitated this technique due to their unique handling characteristics and rheology. Please ask Mr Banwell or one of his team if this approach is of interest.
