If you are unhappy with your breast size but don’t want to go under the knife for plastic and reconstructive surgery or breast implants, then you have probably wondered about natural breast enlargement options, like breast enlargement pills and breast enhancement creams (and whether or not they work!).

As you may be aware, there has been a scare about Allergan implants. Allergan following the suspension of their implants, have withdrawn their sale from the UK and Europe. However, the medical regulatory authorities have stated that there is no increased risk of health problems with these implants and therefore have not recommended the removal of implants which are already in the patients’ breasts.
Having said that it has raised many concerns. We want to reassure you that we are fully aware of these developments and are available to perform free check-ups for your breasts. We strongly recommend everyone with Allergan implants to come in for a check-up. Particularly those whose with implants are 5 years or older.
