I would like to clarify that my comment about the shortage of doctors
performing the procedure was not due to lack of research but by some
of the early answers I received during my efforts.
Here are some examples of answers I received from clinics and doctor

to think that only one or at the most two surgeons where performing
But this morning I found the third one and so I'm posting this answer.
I am sure that if nenna-ga will find more she will publish her
findings and I will do the same if some more answers from doctors and
clinics will come in in the next few days (but I doubt that will be

I also obtained the direct number of Mr. Khan from Mr. Edward

the information I was looking for after I mention that. Here is the

Patient Care Co-ordinator"
I used mostly e-mail and a few phone calls for my research. I emailed
to many plastic surgery clinics and all the plastic surgeons in London
for which I could find e-mail addresses. The British Association of
Plastic Surgeons website www.baaps.org.uk was very useful.
I hope you are satisfied with the answer. I will let you know if more
answers will come in by posting the new findings as comments
Good luck if you decide to undergo the procedure!
Highgate Private Hospital Body Implants brochure
Like many people you may be unhappy with parts of your body that you
consider too small or the wrong shape. No matter what amount and type
of exercise you do, you just cannot get your body the way you want.
Your body may not be genetically designed to have the shape you are
seeking or sometimes a form of injury or disease can affect muscle
development. Embarrassment can mean that you try to cover up the area
resulting in self-restriction of activities and clothing.
How Body Implants Surgery is Performed
Body implants are performed under a general anesthetic. Implants are
inserted through incisions in natural body creases.
Calf Implants are performed with the patient lying face down. An
incision is made at the natural crease at the back of the knee where
the surgeon creates a pocket for the implant. The implant is then
sutured into place. During a buttock implant procedure the incision
is made at the base of the buttock where it meets the leg. Each
implant is then slid up underneath the skin and into position. During
pectoral implants the surgeon makes the incision in each armpit and
then implant is then positioned.
Post Operative Management
After surgery the area surrounding the implant may be slightly swollen
and bruised. Any numbness and tightness will usually subside after a
few days as the body becomes accustomed to the implant. Sutures will
be removed around 10 days after the operation. Walking is encouraged
as it help to reduce the risk of thrombosis.
Most people are able to go back to work within a week. Smoking and
alcohol should be avoided during this period as they prolong swelling.
Strenuous activities should be avoided for up to 6 weeks.
Implants provide an immediate result and they appear quite natural,
even during exercise. They offer you the chance to change the body
part you dislike and have the shape you have always desired.
As with all types of cosmetic surgery, the benefit received from body
implants will depend on the change in attitude a patient has about
themselves following surgery. Increased confidence and self
perception will allow a patient to enjoy new possibilities for
changing their image and try activities that they were once too
embarrassed to participate in.
