Breast Augmentation: How To Choose Which Technique is Best For You

September 5th, 2023 Share

Breast augmentation remains one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries in Toronto, offering a way for women to enhance their silhouette. Dr. DuPéré at Visage Clinic understands that choosing the right technique is a significant part of the journey. For that reason, in this blog we offer insights on selecting the best breast augmentation technique for you. 

Understanding Breast Augmentation Techniques

Breast augmentation involves various techniques and implant options, each designed to meet different needs and preferences. Understanding these options is the first step in making an informed decision.

Types of Implants

  • Saline Implants: Filled with sterile saltwater, these are known for their safety and adjustability.
  • Silicone Implants: Offer a more natural feel and are available in various shapes and sizes.

Incision Options

  • Inframammary: Under the breast fold, offering a concealed scar.
  • Periareolar: Around the nipple, well-hidden but with potential impact on breastfeeding.
  • Transaxillary: In the armpit, leaving no scar on the breast itself.

Placement of Implants

  • Submuscular: Beneath the chest muscle, offering a more natural look, especially in slender women.
  • Subglandular: Above the chest muscle, suitable for women with sufficient breast tissue.

Factors to Consider When Choosing a Technique

The following are some factors to consider when choosing which technique is best for you:

Body Type and Anatomy

Your body shape, breast anatomy, and skin quality are critical factors. Dr. DuPéré evaluates these aspects to recommend the most suitable technique.

Desired Outcome

Discuss your aesthetic goals with Dr. DuPéré. Whether you seek a dramatic change or a subtle enhancement will influence the choice of technique.

Lifestyle and Activities

Consider your lifestyle and physical activities. For athletes or those engaged in vigorous exercise, certain techniques may be more appropriate.

The Role of a Consultation in Choosing the Right Breast Augmentation Technique in Toronto

Choosing the right technique for breast augmentation in Toronto is a decision that significantly benefits from a thorough consultation. When meeting with Dr. DuPéré at Visage Clinic, this initial consultation serves as a critical step in your breast augmentation journey. It’s a time dedicated to open discussion, where you can freely express your expectations, address any concerns, and ask all the questions you have in mind about the procedure.

During this consultation, Dr. DuPéré places great emphasis on understanding your personal aesthetic goals. He believes that each patient’s vision of beauty is unique, and the success of breast augmentation lies in tailoring the procedure to match this vision. He takes the time to listen to your desires and preferences, ensuring that the choice of technique aligns perfectly with the look you aspire to achieve.

Alongside aesthetic considerations, Dr. DuPéré conducts a comprehensive evaluation of your overall health and medical history. This assessment is crucial to determine your suitability for breast augmentation. Factors such as your physical health, any pre-existing conditions, and your medical background are carefully reviewed. This process ensures that the chosen technique not only meets your aesthetic expectations but is also the safest and most appropriate option considering your health and wellbeing. This comprehensive approach by Dr. DuPéré at Visage Clinic underscores the importance of personalized care and informed decision-making in the realm of cosmetic surgery.
