Beginning in the 1920s, treatment involved the injection of fat into the breasts. This method was proven ineffective as the injected fat did not stay in place, and was instead absorbed into the body. This type of breast augmentation, a type of fat transfer, was abandoned about 20 years later. Around this time, the injection of silicone (beginning in Japan) as well as the insertion of polyvinyl sponges arose as other popular methods of breast augmentation. These were also abandoned as many women suffered serious complications, some life threatening. The silicone and saline breast implants used today can be traced back to the early 1960s, when a safer implant for breast augmentation was discovered. Though the structure and design of those implants may not have been as strong, durable, and as long lasting as today's, they were also made out of a silicone shell, filled with a saline solution or silicone gel. Today, there are a variety of breast implants for breast augmentation in Toronto. Your physician at Toronto Cosmetic Clinic can help you choose the most suitable type for you.
