Breast Augmentation & Breast Enlargement
Body image is one of the most important aspects of a woman’s life. A woman’s opinion of her own body can be the driving force of her success. Many women take pride in loving their body and enjoying life and we strive to deliver just that to our clients.
The words “natural implants” might seem like an oxymoron, but here at the Toronto Cosmetic Clinic we make it our mission to create the perfect, natural breast augmentation. Our team of surgeons at our Toronto based cosmetic clinic make dreams of the perfect body easily obtainable, whether you live in the city or not. We believe that every woman should be comfortable in her own skin and love her body, which is why we provide a safe environment where clients can make their dreams a reality.
What is Breast Augmentation?
Breast augmentation also known as augmentation mammoplasty, is an elective cosmetic surgical procedure using breast implants. Breast Augmentation is the most popular and most common cosmetic surgery procedure to date. . Many people choose breast augmentation for a variety of reasons. Some women are simply unhappy with their own breast size due to genetics, while some may want to improve the overall look of their breasts following previous breast surgery. Other women may find they have lost volume or elasticity in their breasts with age or after pregnancy. Regardless of the physical issue, the Toronto Cosmetic Clinic works individually with each client to help determine exactly what they want, and to help achieve their dreams of the perfect body image.
What Breast Augmentation Can Do For You:
Since the 1960s, breast augmentation has shown positive effects in heightening client self-esteem and confidence. In fact, a study by the Journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons on 112 breast implant candidates showed that 95% of women said they felt better and more confident in themselves after surgery, and 86% said they felt decrease in self-consciousness.
With the constant and ever-changing advancements in medicine, there are now countless ways to get exactly the type of breasts you want. Here at the Toronto Cosmetic Clinic, we understand that each client has many needs and desires. This is why we offer different options for you to consider when choosing the right breast augmentation for yourself. We offer top of the line saline and silicone based implants and your plastic surgeon will help guide you through understanding the benefits of each to help you make your final decision.
How it’s done:
In terms of surgery length, most procedures are only 1 to 2 hours in duration, though this may vary on a case-by-case basis. Clients are put to sleep throughout the surgery and wake with very minimal pain. They are carefully watched over and monitored throughout their recovery time following the surgery. Each technique that our surgeons use for breast augmentation is discussed at length with the client and results in the construction of beautiful, soft, elegant, and natural looking breasts.

Implant Types, Sizes, Shapes:
Implant types and sizes come in an array of choices and possibilities. Under the consultation and recommendation of the Toronto Cosmetic Clinic, we will work with our clients to provide them with the best implants to suit their needs. We use 3D Breast Imagining technology to get an accurate depiction of how the breast implants will look on each individual after surgery.
At the Toronto Cosmetic Clinic, we use silicone gel-filled implants and saline-filled implants. Although both have a similar feel and texture, the composition is quite different. Choosing saline or gel implants is one of the biggest decisions you will make for your breast augmentation.
Both saline and silicone filled implants are encased in silicone-based shells with choices of smooth or textured surfaces and round and contoured shapes. Saline-filled implant solution contains the same salt content as the human body, making the solution completely safe for the body. However, since silicone gel-filled implants have been modified and reapproved by the FDA, they are considered the safer implant option. Luckily, silicone gel-filled implants have the most realistic feel of natural breast tissue and do not suffer from the “rippling” effect that can sometimes be experienced with saline-filled implants.
Size matters. A good way to get an idea of the size you want is to take into consideration all the things you do on a daily basis. Your lifestyle can be affected if you choose the wrong breast size for your body type. Picking the right size for your body type is very important, as choosing too large a breast implant may make those with a smaller, thinner frame look awkward or disproportionate. Usually, most women will augment their breast size by 2 cup sizes (example: A cup to C cup) so their breasts will look real, full, and natural on their body.
Implants for breast augmentation may be placed in a number of different ways. At the Toronto Cosmetic Clinic we make it our duty to present every option to our clients and give them the best recommendation based on their individual body type and preference. This is of the utmost importance as every body is different and every client’s choice of implant size, their lifestyle, and anatomy are different.
- Subglandular placement is where the implant is placed under the breast tissue, on top of the muscles, and is the original placement technique used.
- Subpectoral placement is where the implant is placed under the subpectoral muscle, and has become the most common placement.
- Submuscular placement is where the implant is placed under the muscles and fascia. This technique is most often used in cases where a full breast reconstruction is required or for those who are smaller breasted and have insufficient breast tissue to cover the implant.
As with any surgical procedure, breast augmentation does require some type of scar. However, rest assured that the plastic surgeons of the Toronto Cosmetic Clinic specialize in making scars the least visible as possible and making sure they are placed in the least visible of places.
- The most common of incisions for breast augmentation is the inframammary or “breast fold” incision. This is known to heal beautifully with the least visibility and can only be seen when the breast is lifted.
- Also, there is the transaxilary incision, which requires the incision be made through the armpit. In this case you can be sure there will be no visible incisions in the breast area.
- The periareolar incision at the edge of the areola is also a possibility for placing the implant. Here, the incision will be made where there is the darker skin around the nipple and be less visible.
- And finally, the transumbilical incision (TUBA) is the newest incision for saline implants. Here, the incision is made in the navel and the implants will be inflated after placement.
Every client has a specific vision and desire that we at the Toronto Cosmetic Clinic look forward to hearing about.
