Who is the Best Candidate for Breast Augmentation?

The best candidate for a Toronto breast augmentation is someone who desires breasts with perkier volume and a larger size. Before surgery, breasts may be smaller than you wish, or asymmetrical. As a candidate, you may also experience decreased breast size due to pregnancy and breastfeeding.

You should be in good health and considered to be fit. It is important that you do not have any medical problems that affect your ability to heal or tolerate anesthetic well. We advise our surgical patients not to smoke or have a BMI over 35, as being close to your ideal weight before your breast augmentation procedure makes your surgery safer. These basic physical requirements ensure that your body can handle the stress of this elective surgery and that you will recover quickly afterward. If you have medical questions, be sure to let your surgeon know and they will be happy to discuss with you.

5 5 Star Rating

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 implants, day of surgery, and what to expect afterward


What kind of Breast Implant Should I use?

As you plan for your surgery and select a breast implant size, consider your age, lifestyle, career, physique, and body proportions in order to develop realistic expectations.

Dr. Golger and Dr. Romy can significantly enhance your breasts using the latest, most advanced saline and silicone-gel breast implant devices through a safe and effective breast augmentation procedure. Goals for your breast augmentation surgery typically include the enlargement of breast size and the restoration of cleavage volume. This creates a natural appearance while maintaining a balanced body proportion to improve your self-confidence and body image. Our plastic surgeons have a high level of experience and training that provides them with the skill and expertise to give you excellent breast augmentation results.

Saline Implants or Silicone Implants

There are two breast implant options available in Toronto and Whitby: saline and cohesive silicone gel.

  • Saline implants: These 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.
  • Silicone implants: The other option is silicone gel implants which 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.

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.

What to Expect on the Day of Breast Augmentation Surgery?

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 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.

Breast Augmentation Recovery Process

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.

How Much Does Breast Augmentation Cost in Toronto?

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 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.

Breast Augmentation FAQs

Your Breast Augmentation Questions Answered

Can I get a Breast Augmentation while Breastfeeding?

  • Breast Augmentation is a popular way to give a boost to your post-baby body. If you have recently given birth, it is important to finish breastfeeding for at least a few months before your initial consultation, so that your breasts have stabilized in shape and size, and are no longer producing milk.

How Long does breast augmentation surgery take?

  • The surgery typically takes approximately two hours.

Will my breast augmentation leave scars?

  • Because this is a surgery, the incisions will leave scars. However, the highly-trained surgeons at Avenue Plastic Surgery will do their best to hide them, so they are not easily seen.

How Long do Breast Augmentation Results Last?

  • While you can enjoy the results for a long time, they don’t last forever. You may need to replace them after about 20 years.

Can I get a Tummy Tuck at the same time as my Breast Augmentation?

  • Absolutely, many patients enjoy a tummy tuck while getting a breast augmentation after pregnancy. This is referred to as our Toronto mommy makeover and is a very popular procedure in our office.
