Breast Surgery

Mr Thornton performs the full range of aesthetic breast procedures. These includes breast reduction, mastopexy (uplift), breast augmentation (implants), surgery for breast asymmetry, and treatment for tuberous breasts. For breast augmentation procedures, Mr Thornton only uses round or anatomical implants of high quality with a good safety record, and they can be positioned either sub-glandularly (beneath breast tissue, but above muscle), sub-muscularly (below muscle) or dual plane (partial muscle cover), depending on the patient’s wishes and their body shape. All these procedures are performed under general anaesthetic and Mr Thornton uses dissolvable stitches that don’t require removal.
