Dr. DuPéré's Breast Augmentation Techniques

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.

Incision Choices

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.

Implant Placement Choices

There are 3 options for where Dr. DuPéré can place your breast implants:

Surgery Details

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 more thoroughly.

Most breast augmentation procedures last from 1.25 to 1.5 hours, although if you opt for a combined procedure, your surgery will last a bit longer. During your surgery, Dr. DuPéré begins by making incisions based on your preferences and the plans you made in the pre-op process. He uses meticulous techniques to create a pocket within the breast tissue, directly visualizing the area to minimize bleeding and create the natural-looking cleavage desired by most of his patients.

Once he has placed the implants and evaluated them for symmetry, Dr. DuPéré closes the incisions with sutures and bandages, and dresses the breasts with a supportive garment.

Combining Your Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation is exceedingly popular as a solitary procedure, but it can also work well as a complementary procedure, enhancing the results of another surgery. Some of the most popular options include:

Recovering from Breast Augmentation

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.

Potential Risks and Complications

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.
