5 Things You Should Know Before Choosing Your Breast Implants

Breast augmentation is one of the most highly requested cosmetic procedures in Canada. Here’s everything you need to know about this surgery, and how to choose the right implants to suit all your aesthetic goals.

For women looking to enhance their aesthetic appearance, breast augmentation is a safe and effective way to get your desired shape. When performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon, this cosmetic procedure can:

  • Correct breast asymmetry (when one breast is smaller than the other)
  • Restore volume to breasts that have lost their fullness due to pregnancy, age, or weight loss
  • Increase breast size

Customized Breast Augmentation at our Kelowna Clinic

At our Kelowna clinic, our plastic surgeons offer customized breast augmentations to safely and effectively help you achieve your desired shape. However, undergoing such a surgery is not a decision that should be made quickly or lightly.

During an in-depth consultation, our plastic surgeons can assess your medical history, lifestyle, and aesthetic goals, to determine whether a breast augmentation is the right procedure for you.

How to Choose The Right Breast Implants For Your Needs

While a breast lift is designed to reshape your breasts, breast augmentation uses implants (either silicone or saline) to help you achieve the breast size you’ve always wanted.

However, for the most natural and safest results, you must work with your plastic surgeon to choose the correct type and size of implant for your needs and body.

Here are some of the factors to take into consideration when choosing the right implants:

  • Your body shape and size
  • Existing breast size and shape
  • Your lifestyle and habits
  • How physically active you are
  • The amount and integrity of natural breast tissue

How can a plastic surgeon help determine which implant is right for me?

During your breast augmentation consultation, your surgeon will take measurements, including your height, weight, and chest/breast size, to best decide which implant will fit your existing proportions.

5 Facts About Breast Implants You Need to Know

If you’re considering a breast augmentation, you may find it confusing to separate fact from fiction, but knowing more about implants and how they work, can help you make the safest and most informed choice about which option is right for you.

Here are some top facts you should know:

  1. You can keep your implants indefinitely. There is no expiration date on your breast implants. However, if you have a silicone filled implant, you should get an MRI test every few years to make sure it’s intact. If there is a rupture, the implant should be replaced.

  2. You may need additional surgery. Certain life changes (such as age or pregnancy) can change your breast size and shape, which means your implant could move. This may require additional breast surgeries or an implant replacement.

  3. Your size options may be limited. Your implants can’t always be as big as you want. There are certain factors, such as the size of your rib cage, and the elasticity of your skin, that also play a role. However, you should keep in mind that the bigger your implants, the more likely you are to need revision surgeries in the future.

  4. Working with a board-certified plastic surgeon is your best option. A board-certified plastic surgeon has undergone rigorous training and has experience with all aspects of surgery. They also have the expertise to handle any complications that might arise.

  5. A picture is a helpful starting point. If you are going for a certain look with your implants, take a picture with you to your consultation as it can help illustrate your goals and allow your surgeon to understand what you are looking for.

I recently had liposuction done by Dr. Peterson to fix Coolsculpt I had had done that left me uneven. He was very professional, caring and compassionate and assured me everything could be fixed. I can't express my gratitude to Dr. Peterson for what an amazing job he did and how well he took care of me. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a plastic surgeon, in fact I have recommended him to many friends and they have all been very happy. My experience at the clinic was amazing, right from the beginning talking with Cynthia and the amazing care I got from all the nurses, I felt very special.
