What is breast augmentation?

Breast augmentation is an aesthetic surgery procedure that adds volume to the breasts and reshapes them. Dr. Fouda Neel can perform this procedure using saline or silicone breast implants, as well as fat transfer. Your preferences and anatomy will determine the type of augmentation best suited for you.

What are the benefits of breast augmentation?

In addition to improving your self-confidence and body image, breast augmentation has many other benefits:

  • Increasing the fullness of your breasts and how they project from your body
  • Balancing size and shape when breasts are uneven
  • Replacing or repairing one or both breasts after injury or mastectomy
  • Returning breasts to the size they were before breastfeeding or major weight loss

What is the difference between saline and silicone breast implants?

Dr. Fouda Neel offers silicone and saline breast implants at his Montreal clinic that are safe and approved by Health Canada. It’s important to understand the differences between these types of implants:

  • Saline implants are filled with sterilized salt water. If any problem should cause the implant to collapse, the saline will be absorbed and expelled by the body with no adverse effects to your health. This type of implant is filled after it is placed in the body, which allows for a smaller incision than a silicone implant. Saline implants are also generally less expensive than silicone.
  • Silicone implants contain cohesive silicone gel that patients often say feels more like natural breast tissue than saline implants. Because they maintain their form, these implants are available in a greater variety of shapes and sizes. Silicone implants are generally more expensive than saline.

The choice between silicone and saline is primarily one of personal preference, although cost is also a consideration. Dr. Fouda Neel will allow you to handle sample implants of each type and help you decide on the type that is best suited to your body and desired results.

How is breast augmentation performed?

During breast augmentation, Dr. Fouda Neel begins the surgery by making an incision along the breast crease or around the lower portion of the areola of each breast. He then inserts a breast implant behind the breast tissue (called subglandular placement) or behind the chest muscle (called submuscular placement) after creating a space for your implants (called the pocket). Once he is satisfied that the size and shape of your new breasts match the desired aesthetic results, he closes the incisions with absorbable sutures and covers the area with surgical tape.

When will I see the results of my procedure?

After breast augmentation, your breasts will be fuller and more shapely. In that sense, results are visible right away. As soon as the initial swelling caused by the surgery fades, you will more clearly see the results of your procedure. The incisions made during the surgery typically fade to fine scars over the months that follow.

What happens during the breast augmentation recovery process?

After breast augmentation, you may experience swelling and bruising around your breasts. Prescription pain medication can help alleviate discomfort if needed. You will be asked to wear a compression bandage or sports bra to give your chest extra support while you heal.

Generally, most patients can resume their normal activities, including work and school, within 1 to 2 weeks. You will be asked to abstain from vigorous activities and heavy lifting for about 6 weeks.

How much does breast augmentation cost?

The cost for breast augmentation in Montreal depends on the implants you choose, the surgical technique, and other factors. Visit our Breast Augmentation Costs page for more information.

While cost is a necessary consideration, your safety and the quality of your results is paramount — and that depends on the skill and experience of your plastic surgeon. Dr. Fouda Neel is a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada, under the specialty of plastic surgery. He has extensive experience performing breast enhancement procedures for a variety of patients.
