For anybody that has aleady had the procedure on the NHS, did you get a choice of what type of implant you would like, I know sizing is usually made by them but is this the case with the type of implant they use? Also, did you get to choose whether you had it under or over the muscle? I know many NHS case are preformed under as there is little breast tissue, but if they think you have enough to do over but would prefer it under would they agree to this.

Sorry for all the questions, i'm just trying to get as much info as possible. Type of Implant  - Under or over  - NHS 476424

No the doc decided everything. But I trusted him to make the best decision.

Don't worry about the questions wish I'd have found this place before my op.

Thanks pipple. Did they use saline or silicone when you had your BA. DO you mind if I ask what size you were before and after?

Thanks xx

I think the NHS use Nagor implants, as far as I'm aware their silicone. Scilicone is widely used in the UK, I've not heard of anyone in my time researching with saline implants in the UK, saline is mostly popular in the US. You probably already know this... do you have a preference of one over the other?

Thanks for the reply. I can't make my mind up if im honest.

The saline ones worry me because they are filled through a valve and then just pulled out when full, and I know they meet standards but im worried because of the method used the life expentancy or the chance of rupture would be easier. I havent heard of people having problems but you never know. And I heard with silicone even if they rupture because of the gel texture it wouldnt be as noticable as with saline.

There just so much I'm learning about, just hard to knows what best. Type of Implant  - Under or over  - NHS Icon_rolleyes

Thanks Debie, thats a great help. It's hard because I've not actually spoke to anybody about it I was just put on the list and waiting is the worst. I guess I will feel better once I have my pre op consultation.

Glad yours BA went well and you are happy with the results. x x

I was put on the list on the 26th April, so its been about 7 weeks so far. When I spoke to the receptionist she said the 18th week cut off which is when I think they have to have it done for is 30th August, but I havent been allocated a date so far. xx

I got a choice of implant size from my surgeon. However he is not sure if he can use that exact size but will try and get something close. I will have a sillicon implant in my left (larger breast) and i will have a tissue expander in my right. Once the saline expander is the same volume as the left they are taking it out and replacing it will a sillicon one. It does mean two ops aswell.

I was told i have enough tissue to go over but as he is using the expander and to reduce the risk of capsular contraption he is putting mine under the muscle.

I am in Soctland so things are so different up here. We have a 15week cut off datem which would being me to the first week in september x
