Breast Implants

There are 2 types of breast implants available to women in Toronto seeking breast augmentation: saline breast implants and silicone gel breast implants.

A saline breast implant is a silicone shell filled with a salt-water solution known as saline. A silicone implant is a silicone shell filled with silicone gel. The consistency of the newer silicone gel is thicker and more cohesive than previous generations of silicone implants.

Each implant has certain benefits and limitations. I tell my breast implants patients that if there was one perfect implant, then all surgeons would use it and there wouldn't be any need for the other 80 or 90 styles.

The choice of breast implant depends upon many factors including :

• preexisting breast shape and size
• incision location
• the presence of asymmetry

Generally, the implant style is less important than patients may think. I commonly advise patients that if I used a different implant style on each side, they probably wouldn't be able to tell them apart.

The final decision regarding implant size and style is determined during our pre operative consultation.
