Breast augmention, Breast Implants in Canada
Augmentation is surgery to enhance the size of the breast and is
one of the most common plastic surgical procedures performed by plastic
surgeons. There are some major questions that need to be answered when
having breast augmentation performed. Make sure you address and
understand all these questions prior to having surgery.
first decision to make is what incision is to be used to place the
implants. Implants can be placed through one of four incisions: the areola
(Periareolar), the crease fold (Inframammary) the armpit (Transaxillary)
and the belly button (Transumbilical). Each has its advantages and disadvantages
and each should be discussed with your surgeon in detail prior to the
second major question that must be answered is where the implant
is to be placed.
There are two generally accepted positions for implant
placement, above and below the pectoral muscle. There are advantages
and disadvantages to both.
third major question that should also be addressed is the type of implant
to use. Either silicone or saline are options as well as different shapes such as anatomic, round, high or low profile. Each should be discussed during
consultation with a plastic surgeon.
The fourth and final
question to discuss is the final size you wish to be.
This should be done by trying out different sizers in the office. This
decision should be made very carefully with the guidance of your surgeon and then you should be happy with your results. Many women before breast augmentation surgery are worried about looking to big, and choose a modest size. Then after surgery they are surprised how small implantscan look
in clothes and wished they'd chosen a bigger size.
most common cause for redoing breast augmention surgery is not having a thorough
understanding of the surgery before having it done and then coming out with a result that was unexpected. Therefore, it is important to fully understand all aspects of the surgery.
surgery is usually done on an outpatient basis. You
will feel discomfort, but any pain can be controlled with medication. You can expect your chest
to be bruised, swollen and ache and this can last for a few weeks.
results of breast augmentation are instantaneous but the final result will not be seen until 6 months to a year, when the implant has settled into place and the skin and muscle relaxed.
surgeon will give you specific recovery instructions but usually you
will be asked to rest for the first week. You will probably be instructed
to participate in strenuous activities for 2 - 4 weeks.

surgeon in your area.
