Caring about your appearance extends beyond vanity. For many women, self-image is central to quality of life, social interaction and self-esteem. Royal College-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Marc DuPéré began specializing in breast enhancement surgery back in 2001. He has now become one of the most sought-after plastic surgeons for breast augmentation with implants in Toronto.

Breasts come in several shapes and sizes, and every woman has a different concept of her ideal breasts. Dr. DuPéré's Toronto breast augmentation patients select their breast implants with the help of the newest sizers on the market. He creates natural-looking, proportional breasts with:
Dr. DuPéré will help you choose the right implant for you, the location of the incision, the position of the implants and the right technique to reach your expectations. You can learn more about the procedure on our Breast Augmentation FAQ page. When tailored to your goals, breast augmentation can improve your confidence dramatically.
Depending on the patient's needs, Dr. DuPéré offers numerous incision types and implant placement options. He will discuss these options at your consultation. Read on to learn more.
Dr. DuPéré offers 3 distinct incision options for breast augmentation patients, and each one offers its own set of benefits:
Once he has made the incisions, Dr. DuPéré carefully and meticulously develops a precise pocket, or compartment, where the implants will be placed. In cases involving saline implants, the implants are placed empty and filled once they're in place. He sits the patient slightly during the procedure and evaluates the implants for symmetry and closes the incisions.
There are 3 options for where Dr. DuPéré can place your breast implants:
Dr. DuPéré performs breast augmentation while you are under either general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation. The type of anesthesia that's appropriate for you depends on the extent of your surgery, your overall health, and other factors. During your consultation and pre-op appointment, you and Dr. DuPéré discuss the details of your surgery, including anesthesia, in detail.
Most breast augmentation procedures last from 1.25 to 1.5 hours, although combined procedures can last a bit longer. During surgery, Dr. DuPéré uses meticulous dissection techniques and always under direct visualization to minimize bleeding around the implant and to create the natural-looking cleavage women seek.
Because breasts often sag or droop after pregnancy or weight loss, some patients may also benefit from a breast lift. A breast lift procedure can easily be incorporated into a breast augmentation surgery.
Breast augmentation patients can usually return home the day of their procedure. On average, women feel discomfort for 3 to 7 days after surgery. Some women will require drains for a few days. In most cases, stitches are internal and dissolving.
We recommend our breast enlargement patients in Toronto initiate walking and stretching on the day of the procedure, avoid exercise for 4 weeks and avoid upper chest exercises for 8 weeks. Most women can return to desk work after 7 to 10 days.
Patients generally wear a compression garment for 2 days, followed by a comfortable sports bra. Push-up and underwire bras should be avoided for 6 to 8 weeks.
Every procedure involves inherent risks. Although serious complications are extremely rare, Dr. DuPéré educates every patient about potential risks.
Those risks can include scarring and issues with wound healing, discomfort, bruising, loss of sensation over the breast and, rarely, the nipples, potential breast-feeding issues, palpable or visible implant edges, sagging of the breasts, loss of cleavage, fluid accumulation around the implants, asymmetry, capsular contracture, deep vein thrombosis, and general-anesthesia-related issues.
