Modern Toronto Breast Augmentation Has Come A Long Way

Although most trends come and go, beautiful breasts have long been viewed as synonymous with femininity. As a result, women have been looking for ways to enhance their busts for centuries. Thus, while we tend to think of a breast augmentation as a modern procedure, variations of this surgery have been performed since the 19th century. However, breast augmentation procedures have come a long way as a result of technological advancements. Today, Toronto breast augmentation surgery is incredibly safe, atraumatic, and delivers beautiful, natural looking results.

Incredibly Safe

Breast augmentation surgery was first performed in 1890 by an Austrian doctor who used paraffin injections to increase the size of the breasts. Over the years, a variety of techniques and materials have been used that would certainly not be considered safe today. These include silicone injections and glass or ivory balls. Unfortunately, outdated methods of breast augmentation surgery frequently resulted in infection due to the materials used. In fact, even early forms of silicone implants raised safety concerns in the 1970s and 1980s, which caused them to be temporarily taken off the market.

However, silicone implants were reintroduced in the 21’st century, completely redesigned, and are now one of the most popular options due to their safety and low risk of infection. Patients interested in a breast augmentation are now able to choose between implants filled with saline (medical grade salt water) and cohesive silicone gel. Since both options are incredibly safe, the choice now comes down to personal preference, as saline implants typically necessitate a smaller incision but silicone implants tend to deliver results that feel more natural.

Minimally Invasive

Although a Toronto breast augmentation is a surgical procedure, it’s now much less traumatic to body tissue due to surgical advancements. In many cases, the surgery can be completed in 2 hours or less, which reduces the patient’s time under an anesthetic, minimizing the risks associated with the procedure. It is an outpatient procedure and the patient can return home the day of the surgery. The less invasive nature of today’s technique also means that the recovery period is shortened. Many patients are able to return to work and resume most day to day activities within a week of the procedure.

Beautiful, Natural Looking Results

While each patient has unique goals for their enhancement, in most cases, today’s patients prefer more natural looking results over the “augmented” look made famous by celebrities such as Pamela Anderson in the nineties. As a result of advancements in technology, it is now possible to achieve beautiful results, which appear extremely natural, as changes have been made to the shape and dimensions of modern breast implants.

Your plastic surgeon can help you choose an implant size and placement that will achieve a gentle, natural slope, which mimics the breast’s natural shape. Using modern techniques and good post-operative scar treatments, scarring can usually be greatly reduced, so patients no longer have to worry about terrible scarring, which can be a telltale sign of surgery.
