Breast Implants

Breast Augmentation

A breast augmentation is a cosmetic surgical procedure that involves adding volume and increasing the size of breasts to create a fuller or more proportionate appearance.

Breast Augmentation can boost self-esteem, and restore volume lost through childbearing, weight loss, or aging. Some women never develop the breasts that they feel would make them more feminine or comfortable in their own skin. Many people wish to safely and permanently improve the appearance, shape, and size of their breasts, especially after body changes that are common after pregnancy and breastfeeding. At Avenue Plastic Surgery in Toronto, you’ll be in great care, as the surgeons expertise are what makes them among the best to perform a breast augmentation Toronto residents can look forward to.

What does a breast augmentation surgical procedure entail?

Breast augmentation in Toronto and Whitby is a relatively simple, outpatient procedure performed in our state of the art, surgical facility.

The procedure is completed under general anesthesia with intravenous sedation. Dr. Golger and Dr. Romy are able to create small skin incisions in different locations, including beneath the breast, around the areola or in the underarm for inconspicuous and minimal scarring. Next, a pocket for the breast implant is created and the breast implant is gently inserted underneath the muscles of the chest and the breast tissue. Finally, absorbable sutures are used to close the small incisions and a dressing is applied over the wound for effective healing. Once the breast augmentation surgery is over, you will be fitted with a post-operative bra and allowed to recover in the recovery room for approximately one hour before making your way home.

Implant choices: saline or silicone-gel?

There are two breast implant options available in Toronto and Whitby: saline and cohesive silicone-gel. Saline implants are filled with sterile saline liquid and can be inserted into the breast pocket via a very small incision, then filled once inside. They tend to be less expensive but also feel less natural than silicone-gel implants, depending on natural breast tissue. This type of implant is usually not recommended for thin individuals because of its potential rippling effect through thin skin.

On the other hand, silicone-gel implants come pre-filled with silicone-gel to provide a natural look and feel. They are available at a slightly higher price point and are ideal to ensure natural movement and minimize rippling. However, silicone-gel implants do require a slightly larger incision for insertion.

Size of implants

Despite the appeal of silicone-gel implants, saline breast implants remain a popular choice among our patients. The final choice between implants for your breast augmentation will be determined by your personal preferences and discussion with Dr. Golger or Dr. Romy.

The cost of a Toronto breast augmentation

A breast augmentation is a highly personalized procedure. The cost of your Toronto breast augmentation will vary based on the type of breast augmentation performed along with other factors. The average cost of a breast augmentation at Avenue Plastic Surgery is around $8,000. Financing options are available that can help make the payment process more manageable for our patients.

Dr. Romy Ahluwalia is a fantastic plastic surgeon! I had a breast augmentation done with him. At my consultation appointment he took the time to answer all my questions and concerns in regards to the procedure. He made me feel very comfortable and confident in choosing him as my surgeon. He thoroughly explained the incision and placement of the implant and his reasoning for the location. He is a very kind and caring doctor. If I were to have any other surgeries done in the near future, I would most definitely pick him as my doctor. I highly recommend him!

Breast Augmentation Recovery

The recovery process following a breast augmentation surgery

After spending adequate time in our recovery room, you will be allowed to go home to begin your very simple recovery process.

General post-operative instructions focus on receiving plenty of rest with limited arm movement to help minimize discomfort. Patients are generally asked to avoid upper body exercise or activities that increase heart rate and blood pressure, for two to three weeks. Following your surgery, uncomfortable pressure, tightness, and swelling in your chest tissue may occur. This is effectively treated with oral pain medication and typically subsides within one to two weeks. Some have reported a numbing sensation in their nipples, which is not uncommon and can last for one to two months post-op, however, this feeling does not persist for most patients. While complications during recovery for breast augmentation are rare, you can minimize risk by carefully following the post-operative care instructions provided by our plastic surgeons.

Although the results of your breast augmentation surgery are visible immediately after the procedure, it will be difficult for you to enjoy and appreciate your new body until you have fully recovered and the swelling has diminished. Therefore, patience is important and we promise that the final outcome will be well worth the wait.
