Breast Augmentation

Breast enhancement surgery is a popular procedure for a variety of reasons. Enlarging the size of the bust changes the figure and may lead to more balanced, attractive proportions. There are women who wish to have more noticeable breasts to feel a higher sense of femininity. Some women want the wardrobe available to them to broaden. Others simply prefer the person they see in the mirror after the operation, which leads to an increase in self-acceptance, confidence and subsequently happiness.

Types of implants

There are two types of breast enlargement implants: silicone gel and saline. The majority of women in Canada opt for the silicone-based gel implants. One can choose from a variety of shapes and sizes to better suit expectations and desires. These implants are filled with a thick silicone gel that is softer and more malleable to the touch.

The saline implants are filled with saline, which is an intravenous salt water solution often used in hospitals. The implants are filled with saline during the procedure to a specific amount in order to avoid wrinkles and folds. These implants give fuller, rounder-looking breasts; they are not as soft as they would be with silicone implants.

Both implant types are safe, reliable, and widely used. The selection of the implant is fully dependant upon preferences and the desired outcome. Consulting with an experienced cosmetic surgeon is recommended to gather more information on breast augmentation and to better identify what is right for you.
