Benefits of Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation, or augmentation mammoplasty, offers transformative benefits for women seeking to enhance the size, shape, and symmetry of their breasts. One significant benefit is the ability to achieve fuller, more proportionate breasts, which can improve body proportions and enhance overall body contours. This often leads to increased self-confidence and improved body image, as women feel more feminine and attractive. Breast augmentation can also address asymmetry or congenital deformities, creating a more balanced and aesthetically pleasing breast appearance. Furthermore, the procedure can restore breast volume lost due to pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight loss, or aging, helping women regain a youthful and perky breast contour. Ultimately, breast augmentation offers women the opportunity to achieve their desired breast size and shape, enhancing their self-esteem and quality of life.

Who Is a Candidate for Breast Augmentation?

Ideal candidates for breast augmentation are women who are unhappy with the size, shape, or symmetry of their breasts and have realistic expectations about the outcomes of the procedure. They should be in good overall health, with no active infections or medical conditions that could impair healing. Candidates should also have fully developed breasts and be emotionally and mentally prepared for surgery. Additionally, candidates should be non-smokers or willing to quit smoking before and after the procedure to minimize complications and promote optimal healing. Consulting with a board-certified plastic surgeon is essential to determine candidacy and discuss personalized treatment options tailored to individual needs and goals.

Breast Augmentation Options

Scar Location

When considering breast augmentation in Toronto, incision placement is also an essential factor to consider. Dr Jindal utilizes a breast crease or inframammary fold incision for the highest level of accuracy and precision. This incision is hidden under the breast and has the lowest rate of complications, including capsular contracture. Other incision points, such as around the areola or in the armpit, have increased risks of complications and visible scarring.

Saline or Silicone

Saline implants are filled with sterile saltwater, are inserted empty, and are subsequently filled to the desired size. Saline implants are often associated with high rates of visible rippling. Silicone, cohesive gel implants are pre-filled with silicone gel and provide a more natural look and feel. These are known as “gummy bear” implants and are preferred by the majority of patients and surgeons. Both types of implants are considered safe and have undergone extensive safety testing by the FDA and Health Canada.

Implant Placement

During a breast implant consultation, Dr. Jindal will assess whether implant placement above or below the pectoralis muscle is most appropriate for you. Placing the implant partially behind the muscle, known as a dual plane or sub-pectoral placement, provides more coverage in the upper pole, reducing visibility, palpability, and rippling. The “dual-plane” name refers to the amount of muscle that is released from the breast, allowing Dr. Jindal greater flexibility to tailor the surgery to your exact needs. In some cases, placing the implants in a sub-glandular or sub-fascial position, above the muscle, may be preferable. For example, sub-glandular placement can help lift tissues to correct mild drooping, known as ptosis, and can also be used to shape the breast in the case of tuberous or constricted breasts.

Expert Attention To Detail

Safety and meticulous attention to detail sit at the core of everything we do at Studio Plastic Surgery. We are constantly recalibrating our procedures to remain at the forefront of our field and deliver the most advanced care available. We use cutting-edge techniques such as the Internal Bra suture for internal support, prospective hemostasis for bloodless augmentation, and Keller insertion funnels to perform the augmentation in the safest way possible. These techniques significantly reduce the risk of complications like capsular contracture and infection, allowing us to provide exceptional results.

Minimize Scarring Associated with Capsular Contracture

There are fourteen aspects of our signature breast augmentation that have been specifically designed to reduce the risk of capsular contracture:

  • The implant size is carefully chosen to match the breast perfectly, reducing the risk of complications when the implant size is too large for the pocket.
  • The surgeon uses antibacterial soap before the operation to improve outcomes and reduce the risk of biofilm.
  • Pre-surgical prophylactic antibiotics are given intravenously before anesthesia on the day of surgery.
  • The patient's skin is double-cleansed using a chlorhexidine preparatory solution.
  • Nipple shields are used to reduce the risk of biofilm contamination from the glands.
  • The breast crease incision is used, significantly reducing the risk of capsular contracture.
  • A Bloodless Breast Augmentation technique employing the use of prospective hemostasis is used to avoid any bleeding during the dissection of the pocket. A careful, atraumatic dissection is performed to reduce the risk of injury to surrounding structures.
  • The pocket is meticulously dissected to match the implant perfectly, reducing the risk of the capsule tightening around the implant.
  • A combination of antibiotic/anti-septic irrigation is used to cleanse the pocket and bathe the implants.
  • Surgical gloves are changed after the dissection prior to insertion of the implants.
  • The implant is inserted using a Keller funnel, which places the implant directly into the pocket from the sterile package to avoid any risk of contamination.
  • The incision is closed with a three-layer watertight procedure.
  • Post-operative antibiotics are given to reduce the risk of infection.
  • Patients are taught specific breast implant displacement exercises to reduce the risk of capsular tightening.

Recovery After Breast Augmentation in Toronto

Giving your body time to heal after breast augmentation surgery in Toronto is essential. If your job isn't physically demanding, a week off is usually enough, but if it is, three weeks is recommended. However, every patient is different, and your surgeon will discuss your recovery process with you in detail.

After surgery, feeling sore and tight in your chest is normal. Our surgeons administer medications before and after surgery, as well as long-acting freezing to reduce discomfort and the need for narcotics. It's important to wait at least four weeks before attempting light exercise and two months before more strenuous workouts or heavy lifting. Rushing the healing process can cause displacement of the implants, which may require revisionary surgery.

Our team will provide you with thorough instructions as well as a 24/7 phone contact to Dr. Jindal, should you have any questions or concerns.

Immediately After Surgery (Days One and Two) 

Here is a timeline of what to expect during breast augmentation recovery:

  • You may experience some discomfort and swelling in the breast area after surgery.
  • You will receive a specific post-operative medication protocol to ensure your comfort, reducing the amount of narcotics needed.
  • Surgical dressings and a supportive bra will be applied before you wake up to help heal and support your newly augmented breasts.
  • Stay well hydrated and move around the house frequently during the first three days to avoid complications.
  • Move your arms slowly and avoid sudden or jerking movements to the chest.
  • After three days, you can resume relatively normal, non-strenuous activities but avoid exertion or lifting.

Week One

  • It's normal to still feel some soreness, swelling, and tightness in the chest area.
  • The breasts may sit high and tight; this is normal and will improve and settle.
  • Follow our post-operative pain medication protocol to reduce discomfort and the need for stronger medications.
  • Dr Jindal may prescribe post-operative prophylactic antibiotics to reduce the risk of infection after breast augmentation.
  • Wear your supportive surgical bra 24/7 for the first eight weeks, even at night, to protect placement and provide support.
  • Most patients can return to non-strenuous work within five to seven days but will need to avoid heavy lifting or exercise for the first four weeks.
  • All sutures under the skin are completely self-dissolvable. You can shower on the third day after surgery but must keep the steri-strips on the incision
  • After showering, pat the areas dry or use a hair dryer and then replace the bra immediately.
  • Avoid tub baths, pools, and hot tubs, or anything where the surgical site is submerged in water for four weeks until the incisions are completely healed.

Week Two

  • Swelling should begin to subside during this period.
  • Most patients can return to work and regular activities without concern.
  • You will likely have a follow-up appointment with Dr Jindal around this time to check on your healing.
  • During the follow-up appointment, you will receive breast displacement exercises and scar management instructions.
  • Dr Jindal recommends displacement exercises to allow the implant to move freely within the breast pocket and prevent scar tissue from tightening around the implant.

Weeks Four to Six

  • The breasts will start to settle into a more natural position and shape.
  • Most patients can resume normal daily activities, including light exercises.
  • Patients should still avoid upper-body workouts or heavy lifting.
  • The scars from the incisions will continue to fade, but they may still be pink or slightly raised.
  • Scar management protocols will continue to help minimize the appearance of scars.

Months Two to Three

  • As the implants settle and the skin stretches, your breasts will have a more natural appearance in a process known as "drop and fluff."
  • You can gradually resume more intense physical activities and exercises.
  • The scars will continue to fade and refine, but it may take several months to over a year for them to mature fully.
  • Follow-up appointments will be scheduled during this period to check on your healing and address any questions you may have.

Cost of Breast Augmentation

A standard breast augmentation at Studio Plastic Surgery using round, silicone, cohesive gel implants starts at $10,650 plus HST. This fee includes nursing care, all surgical supplies, anesthesia, surgical fees, implants, and all follow-up clinic visits. If a breast lift is required simultaneously, the fees for an augmentation mastopexy range between $12,500 and $16,000. In the case of complex revisionary procedures, the costs may differ depending on what surgery is needed and if any additional medical supplies, such as internal support mesh or acellular dermal matrix, are used.

What is capsular contracture, and how common is it?

Will breast augmentation affect breastfeeding?

Breast augmentation surgery can potentially affect a woman's ability to breastfeed, depending on factors such as the type of incision made during surgery and the extent of disruption to breast tissue.

What are the risks associated with breast augmentation?

Risks include infection, bleeding, changes in nipple or breast sensation, implant rupture or leakage, capsular contracture (scar tissue around the implant), and the need for additional surgeries.

Is breast augmentation covered by insurance?

In most cases, breast augmentation surgery is considered an elective cosmetic procedure and is not covered by health insurance. However, there may be exceptions for procedures performed for reconstructive purposes after mastectomy or other medical conditions. It's important to check with your insurance provider for specific coverage details.

Will I lose nipple sensation after breast augmentation?

Changes in nipple sensation can occur after breast augmentation, but they are often temporary. Most women experience some degree of altered sensation immediately after surgery, which typically improves over time. However, in rare cases, permanent changes in nipple sensation may occur.

What is capsular contracture, and how common is it?

Capsular contracture is a complication that occurs when scar tissue forms around the breast implant, causing the breast to feel firm or tight and potentially distorting its shape. While capsular contracture can occur in some patients, advancements in surgical techniques and implant materials have reduced its incidence significantly.
