New cosmetic surgery option comes to UK

breast augmentation

A new cosmetic surgery procedure is on offer in the UK for women who want to increase the size of their breasts.

The TLC Breast Enhancement method involves using intense pulsed light from a laser in order to stimulate the production of oestrogen.

Dr Daniel Sister, a French cosmetic surgeon operating in Notting Hill, told the Daily Mail: "With laser enhancement, you are not placing or injecting any foreign material into your body.

"The laser stimulates the natural growth process experienced throughout puberty and pregnancy - it's completely natural."

According to the doctor, the oestrogen produced in a woman's body during pregnancy and puberty is responsible for defining the firmness and size of her breast.

He noted that the beam from the laser simply encourages oestrogen production and "mimics natural growth".

The treatment is not suitable for those looking for a dramatic increase in size, but has been recommended for women of between and A and C cup who would like to firm up their breasts and increase their cup size by one or two stages.
