William Blake has developed a special interest in all aspects of breast surgery. The full range of breast operations share common goals of helping individual women to achieve the breast shape and size which addresses their physical and psychological concerns. A broad range of surgical techniques and a trained aesthetic eye enable Mr Blake to offer:
Breast augmentation or colloquially a boob job, is one of the most popular cosmetic surgical procedures. The surgery is popular because it addresses the real concerns of women about breast size, asymmetry and, frequently, embarassment. Modern augmentation using silicone implants is a solution favored by many women looking for shape, projection, cleavage and feel. more...
William Blake offers breast reduction surgery carefully tailored to the individual aiming to reduce symptoms of shoulder and neck pain, intertrigo and breast discomfort while attending to the aesthetics of size and shape. Breast reduction surgery can make an enormous difference to women of any age and is one of the most popular body contouring operations. more...
All patients considering breast surgery are assessed over at least two consultations before a final surgical plan is developed. You will have opportunities to ask a wide range of questions about every aspect of your proposed surgery. Special tests, for example a mammogram, may be needed before planning surgery and Mr Blake will discuss this with you.
After the diagnosis of breast cancer, pre-cancer or high genetic risk, many women will wish to discuss options for re-constructive surgery when mastectomy is recommended. Mr Blake is able to offer implant or natural tissue reconstructions where appropriate and will discuss options with you. TRAM flaps, DIEP flaps and other variations of natural tissue reconstructions may offer the best results for many women.

The operation of lifting and re-shaping the breast to address droop or ptosis is called mastopexy. Commonly this is requested by patients who have had their children and who miss their previous breast shape. Mr Blake will discuss the realistic improvements which may be expected with a mastopexy operation.
Secondary breast surgery refers to the operations which may be required after previous breast surgery, often many years before. Implant issues, sometimes capsular contracture or rupture, may lead to discussion of secondary breast surgery.
