Breast Augmentation

At the Canadian Plastic Surgery Centre in Toronto, the most common cosmetic surgery inquiries we receive are for breast augmentation procedures. More often than not patients don’t know the exact name of the procedure. They simply come to the clinic requesting surgery to make their breasts larger. If you live in or near the Toronto area and want larger, rounder, or fuller breasts, breast augmentation surgery performed by Dr. Chivers will give you the looks you want.

Breast augmentation surgery is a common cosmetic surgery that increases the size and modifies the shape of breasts by implanting silicone, saline, or fat. Breasts are larger, rounder, and often firmer after receiving this surgery. This type of surgery only increases the size of breasts. It does not lift breasts, nor will it match asymmetrical breasts. However, it is possible to combine breast lift or breast revision surgery with breast augmentation surgery and Dr. Chivers will discuss all options with you during your initial consultation.

Breast augmentation surgery is not a one-size-fits-all type of surgery. There are numerous options available for the surgery, all of which Dr. Chivers will fully explain during the initial consultation. Depending on your aesthetic needs and budget, you can choose between the following:

  • Saline Implants – Less expensive, but not quite as natural looking
  • Silicone Implants – More expensive and more natural looking

Furthermore, breast implants are available in a wide range of sizes and can be implanted either above or below the muscle in your breasts. All of these decisions are made during the initial consultation with Dr. Chivers.

Candidates

Candidates for breast augmentation are women in good health who have fully completed puberty and no longer expect to grow in any way. Candidates usually have small breasts or sagging breasts. It doesn’t matter whether breast shape and size is due to age, weight loss, past pregnancies, or any other reason. This surgery is effective regardless of the reason the candidate has small breasts. When you receive your consultation Dr. Chivers will personally examine you to determine if you are a good candidate for this surgery.

Recovery

Like every surgery, there is a recovery time associated with breast augmentation surgery. While the surgery itself is not particularly invasive, full recovery often takes a little over a month. However, most patients only experience pain, which can be greatly reduced with medication, for about a week at most, by which time they can usually perform most non-strenuous activities. The patient only needs to wait for the entire recovery period to pass to engage in strenuous activities. The recovery process also requires a second appointment after about a week for the stitches to be removed.
