Breast Augmentation Surgery
Breast augmentation surgery is one of the more popular cosmetic surgical procedures performed by Dr. Bell at his accredited surgical facility in Toronto. This cosmetic procedure involves the insertion of breast implants, and is usually done for one of the following reasons: cosmetic reasons, where the patient wishes to have greater volume in her breasts, or she may want to compensate for weight that was lost through pregnancy or diet.
Breast augmentation surgery can result in:
- A more proportionate figure
- Increasing the shape and size of your breasts
- A more pleasing self-image and greater self-confidence
What A Breast Augmentation Will Not Do:
Breast augmentation surgery is not used to correct severely drooping breasts. For this condition, a breast lift may be the better choice.
A breast lift may be done at the same time as your breast augmentation. However, it may also be done as a separate operation. Dr. Bell will assist you in making this decision.
Breast augmentation is a very personal decision which should be made only after consultation with Dr. Bell at his accredited surgical facility in Toronto.
Breast augmentation may be a good option for you if:
- You are bothered by the feeling that your breasts are too small
- You are dissatisfied with any change in their volume or shape, following pregnancy, weight-loss, or due to aging
- Your breasts are different in size or shape
- One or both breasts have failed to develop normally
Breast ugmentation: Aesthetic Choices
The desired size and shape of your breasts are important, so be honest and open about your expectations when talking with Dr. Bell during your discussion.
Dr. Bell will determine the type and size of your implants. This will be based, not just on your desired increase in size, but more importantly on the anatomy of your breasts, your skin elasticity and body type.
Breast Implant Material Choices
Implants: Silicone or saline?
Saline breast implants are filled with varying amounts of saline (salt water). This can affect the shape, firmness and feel of the breast.
Silicone breast implants are filled with an elastic gel. The gel feels and moves much like natural breast tissue.
As implant manufacturers sometimes introduce new styles and types of implants, there may be additional options available when you are ready to have Dr. Bell perform the breast procedure at his Toronto clinic.
Recovery Time For Breast Augmentation
Many factors are involved in determining your actual recovery time for breast augmentation. In most cases, the post-surgical recovery period is generally 24 to 48 hours. There can be a reduced-activity period of a few days, following the immediate post-surgical recovery. You will likely experience soreness and swelling for a few weeks following your breast augmentation surgery in Toronto.
The results of your breast augmentation surgery performed by Dr. Bell will be long-lasting. You will find it easier to wear certain styles of clothing and swimwear. Like many women who have had breast augmentation, you may also report a boost in self-confidence.
It’s important to know that after receiving breast implants, results are not permanent and they may require replacement during your lifetime. You should expect to have future visits with Dr. Bell to discuss any changes in your breasts.
