Breast Augmentation at River Medical

Thinking about breast augmentation? Perhaps you have always wanted larger breasts or you may want to enhance the shape of your breasts following pregnancy or weight loss. There are a number of reasons people undergo a Breast Augmentation also commonly known as a ‘boob job.’ We are the leading provider of cosmetic surgery in Ireland and Breast Augmentation is the most popular procedure we carry out. 



Our team of Resident Consultant Plastic Surgeons are amongst the most the qualified and experienced in the world so you’re in the best hands from the minute you walk through the door. In this blog we answer and summarise the most commonly asked questions we receive about the procedure:



Who will I meet at my initial consultation?  

At your consultation, you will meet with one of our Consultant Plastic Surgeons who will discuss everything you need to know about the procedure including your expectations and desired results. Our Surgeons are amongst the best in the world, so they will walk you through as well as show you before and after pictures of similar procedures they have carried out.

What is included in the price? Are there any extras?

The price of a Breast Augmentation is €5,700 which includes your overnight stay in the hospital, plus free 24/7 aftercare. 

Where will my surgery be carried out?

Your surgery should only ever be carried out in a Private General Hospital that is fully accredited, a hospital environment is the safest and only place adequate enough to deal with any potential eventualities.

What sort of implant do you use?

We use only the safest, most assured and rigorously tested, FDA-approved implants. Contact us here for more information. 

Will there be scarring?

Our Consultant Plastic Surgeons use very fine specialist stitching which minimises scarring. They will discuss this in great detail with you at your initial consultation. The consultant will also show you actual photographs of similar incision sites that he or she has carried out on other patients. The incision is generally made under the natural crease of the breast so it won’t be visible to you at any stage.

How long will my breast implants last?

Breast Implants last between 10 and 15 years. If you have any concerns, at any time, you can return to the clinic for a check-up with your Surgeon. We also encourage our patients to return after 10 years for a check-up regardless.

How long will it take to recover and how much time will I need to take off work?

The amount of time you will need to take off work will be dependent on the type of work you do. For example, if you have a physical job you will need to take more time off than someone with an office-based job. Generally, you can resume to all normal activities within 3-6 weeks. However, recovery is different for each individual, so we encourage our patients to go back to work and daily activities once they feel comfortable.

Will I be able to breastfeed after the procedure

We often get asked this question, and the answer is yes. The ability to breastfeed should not be affected by Breast Augmentation.

People decide to have Breast Augmentation for a variety of reasons, from enhancing their body or improving their confidence. Whatever the reason, here at River Medical we are on hand to fully answer any questions you have.
