Planning Your Procedure

Dr. Weinberg takes each patient's specific goals into account when planning every breast augmentation procedure. He also offers his expertise and professional aesthetic opinion during the initial decision-making process. Dr. Weinberg closely evaluates your body's proportions and the quality of your existing breast tissue to guide you through the following choices:

  • Breast implant choices, such as size, shape, material, profile, and texture
  • Incision location
  • Implant placement

Dr. Weinberg may recommend combining your breast augmentation with a breast lift to reduce sagging and enhance breast shape. For women who are unhappy with their current breast implants, either because of complications or a simple dissatisfaction with size or shape, Dr. Weinberg performs breast implant revision surgery.

Breast Implant Choices

For today's breast augmentation patient, Health Canada has approved both saline- and silicone-filled breast implants in a number of shapes, sizes, and profiles, with either smooth or textured shells. Your body and your preferences will determine what makes certain implants a better choice for you. Dr. Weinberg takes these considerations into account and will help you pick the right implant type for your frame, your lifestyle, and your goals. Visit our breast implant options page for more detailed information about these choices.

Incision Locations

Dr. Weinberg offers 3 different incision options, which all become practically invisible once healed. The one that works best for you depends on a few different factors, including the size and type of the implants you select, as well as certain lifestyle factors, such as whether you might breastfeed in the future. Take a look at the benefits of each choice:

  • Inframammary fold (IMF) incisions are popular thanks to their versatility. Made along the crease beneath the breast, the IMF incision offers Dr. Weinberg the most amount of control during surgery, as well as a discreet scar that can easily be concealed beneath clothing and swimwear. This incision also avoids the nipple, preserving sensation and the milk-producing structures that are important for breastfeeding. These factors make the IMF incision Dr. Weinberg's preferred incision in many breast augmentation cases.
  • Periareolar incisions are made along the lower edge of the areola. This incision creates a scar that is extremely difficult to see once healed, because it blends into the coloration border that differentiates the areola from the rest of the breast. It also allows Dr. Weinberg excellent access to the breast pocket so he can create natural-looking results.
  • Transaxillary incisions are made in the armpits. This approach's obvious appeal is in the fact that it doesn't create any potential for scarring on the breast. Instead, the small scar is limited to the underarm and is not typically noticeable in daily life.

While the IMF incision is Dr. Weinberg's preferred incision option, when the IMF incision is not the best choice for the patient, he may use either the transaxillary or periareolar incision. Dr. Weinberg offers his medical opinion to help you choose the safest and most discreet incision location for you.

Implant Placement

Implant placement, or where within the breast the implant is added, is another important consideration. Most of today's patients have 2 options, each of which can affect recuperation time and long-term results. Check out the advantages of each:

  • Over-the-muscle placement is technically called subglandular placement because the implants go above the pectoralis muscle but under the mammary gland. This is a straightforward approach to breast augmentation and typically requires the shortest, most comfortable recovery period. This option is best for women who have a good amount of existing breast tissue to cover the implant for seamless contours.
  • Submuscular (subpectoral) placement positions the implant almost completely under the pectoral muscle. This option is often useful for women with little natural breast tissue, because it uses the muscle to cover and "camouflage" the implant. Submuscular placement also creates a more natural-looking breast shape and a lower risk of a complication called bottoming out, which occurs when the implant migrates downward from its original placement. This option is a very popular choice for patients who prioritize a low complication rate and a natural look and feel.

The Breast Augmentation Procedure

Breast augmentation is usually performed as outpatient surgery with the patient under general anesthesia. Most procedures take about an hour and a half to complete.

Patients usually choose to have their procedures at the clinic and enjoy the personal attention of our warm, friendly staff, and the spa-like atmosphere of a private facility. Because Dr. Weinberg is Division Head of Plastic Surgery at Trillium Health Centre, women also have the option of having their breast augmentations performed in the hospital.

Breast Augmentation Cost

The cost of breast augmentation depends primarily on the choice of breast implant, including whether saline or silicone gel implants are used. Some cost savings can be realized when breast augmentation is combined with other procedures, for example when it is combined with a tummy tuck and liposuction as part of a Mommy Makeover.

After Your Procedure

You will likely return home the day of your surgery and should be able to shower a day later. Dr. Weinberg is quick to remind patients that there is still work to do even after surgery. Things to keep in mind include:

  • It's important to stand and walk around several times a day after surgery to facilitate healing and reduce the risk of blood clots.
  • You will need to wear a tensor bandeau for 6 weeks to keep your implants properly placed on your chest. While your implants will initially ride high, they will usually drop down into position at about 6 weeks.
  • Expect to be ready to return to work within 5 to 7 days.
  • Physical contact with your breasts may resume in 3 to 4 weeks as the breasts are usually sensitive to stimulation for the first few weeks following your procedure.
  • At your follow-up appointments, you will be instructed on the best ways to help your incisions heal and fade quickly. Any scarring should fade within the subsequent months following your breast augmentation.

You will receive plenty of compassionate care after breast augmentation through regular follow-up appointments with Dr. Weinberg. He also makes himself available throughout the healing process, answering questions and providing guidance.

Possible Risks & Complications

As with all surgical procedures, there are possible complications that can occur with breast augmentation. Potential complications specific to your surgery will be discussed in detail at your consultation.
