What is the cost of breast augmentation?
Breast augmentation is a customized procedure tailored to each individual's existing physique, choice of size and texture of implants, and other factors, so it is difficult to pinpoint the general cost. While concern about the price is important, it is far more important to focus on finding the right plastic surgeon who is board-certified and has many years of experience in creating beautiful breasts, as you will be living with the results of your surgery for many years to come. The plastic surgeons at the Canadian Plastic Surgery Centre have the experience to deliver upon this goal and would be more than happy to go over all the details about your surgery during your private consultation.
What are some of the incision patterns?
Periareolar incision: The incision encircles the areolar, with the scar hidden in the darker pigments. This type of incision is useful when a breast lift is being performed in conjunction with your augmentation.
Inframammary incision: Inframammary means situated below the breasts. This incision is created within the natural breast crease where scars can be strategically hidden from view.
Transaxillary incision: This incision is made within the armpits so that no scars are made on the breasts.
It is important to remember that not one incision is necessarily better than the other and your final choice of incision pattern will depend on your body type, choice of size and texture of implants, and personal aesthetic goals.
Types of breast implants
These implants are offered in many different sizes, shapes and textures, so you will be able to find just the right implants to suit your preference and body type. Silicone implants are natural to the eye and the touch and hold their shape well over time.
Saline implants require a smaller incision, making them a better choice for those concerned with scarring. They can be inserted through the transaxillary incision and then filled with saline solution once they are inside the breast pocket. Some consider them safer, since if they rupture, the harmless saline fluid is simply absorbed by the body.
Gummy bear implants are considered “form-stable” and contain a thick yet soft gel. They are formed in a teardrop shape that most naturally resembles the authentic female breast.
How about implant location?
There are three surgical approaches for the placement of breast implants. For women with sufficient existing breast tissue, the implant may be placed beneath the natural breast tissue (subglandular). For women with limited breast tissue, the implants may be placed beneath the chest muscle (submuscular). In some cases, your surgeon may choose to combine the two approaches (dual-plane).
Subglandular: The implants are placed beneath the breast tissue.
Submuscular: The implants are placed beneath the pectoral muscles.
Dual-plane The implants are placed partially beneath the pectoral muscles.
What can I expect from my recovery?
Most of our patients return to work or school within a few weeks of Toronto breast augmentation. Pain medications will be provided by our surgeons to help with the healing process, along with a detailed post-operative instructions.
How long will my results last?
Breast implants tend to last about 10-20 years on average, provided they don't rupture, leak or ripple. Please note that the implants may change their appearance with significant weight loss or weight gain.
