Choosing Saline or Silicone

Our breast augmentation patients in Toronto have a choice of silicone or saline breast implants. While Dr. DuPéré can provide beautiful results with either type, his patients typically prefer silicone implants. Each type has its own benefits and drawbacks.

Silicone

All of the silicone implants Dr. DuPéré offers are filled with cohesive silicone gel, which means that the filling stays together like a solid. Silicone implants range in firmness from soft to those that are firmer and made with form-stable, highly cohesive silicone gel.

  • Benefits: Results look, move, and feel more like natural breasts than saline
  • Drawbacks: Slightly more costly than saline, man-made medical-grade fill material, usually require a slightly larger incision than saline

Saline

Saline implants, while not as popular for breast enlargement in Toronto as silicone, are filled with sterile saltwater.

  • Benefits: Natural fill material, slightly less costly than silicone, volume can be mildly adjusted while implants are placed
  • Drawbacks: Rippling and wrinkling possible, less natural feel than silicone

  • Practices the "no-touch" Keller Funnel technique in breast augmentation to decrease risk of capsular contracture, and uses of triple antibiotics and nipple shields to improve results
  • He completed a fellowship in Paris, France, with two French masters of breast surgery, Dr. Bricout and Dr. Petouin

Determining the Right Size for You

Breast implant size is one of the most important decisions for our Toronto breast augmentation patients and the topic of many questions that Dr. DuPéré hears each day. Because breast implants are measured in volume (cubic centimeters, or cc) or weight (grams) and not bra cup size, choosing the right size is both a science and an art. Even if you'd like your breasts to be the same size as a friend's, you might not need the same size breast implants. Dr. DuPéré will consider your unique anatomy, desired size, and lifestyle, when determining the right implant size for you. He has the latest implant sizers that may be placed in a bra to help you visualize the breast size you want.

Breast augmentation with implants is by far one of the most popular procedures in aesthetic medicine. In this video, Dr. DuPéré describes the breast augmentation process, including what you can expect during your first consultation and the intricate, European-style technique he uses.

Other Choices

Additional breast implant options, such as shape, texture, and profile, help Dr. DuPéré further refine and personalize your breast augmentation results.

Shape

Breast implants are available in 2 shapes: round and anatomical (also called contoured or teardrop). Most women want the upper pole fullness often lost after pregnancy and with aging. Round implants are more popular because they increase that fullness of the upper breast and enhance cleavage. Anatomical implants are shaped to match a natural breast silhouette, with fullness at the lower end and a thinner, tapered upper end. This shape is often considered in cases of very small A-cup breasts, in tuberous breast deformity, for breasts with mild sagging and for trans-female patients. In approximately 2 to 5% of women, anatomical implants may rotate and require corrective surgery. Round implants do not have a top or bottom end and therefore do not cause concerns about rotation.

Texture

The outer covering of both silicone and saline breast implants is made of high-strength, elastic silicone. The surface of the implant covering can either be smooth or textured. Round implants are available with smooth and textured coverings; anatomical implants are only available with a textured cover because the texture helps these implants stay oriented properly. Textured implants may prevent capsular contracture when placed subglandular, a rare complication that causes the tissue around the implant to tighten.

Profile

The implant profile, such as low, moderate, and high (Mentor implants) and very low, low, moderate, full and extra full (Allergan's Natrelle), specifies how much the implant pushes the breast forward from the chest wall. These profiles are available in a range of widths, which should be selected to match the widths of your breasts.

Aesthetics of Breast Beauty

Dr. DuPéré understands what makes breasts look naturally beautiful. He observes the following principles when determining implant size and shape:

  • Implants that are too large will give an unnatural and augmented look, sometimes pornographic; but, those implants that are too small may not provide the desired fullness.
  • The implant should match the width of the existing breast.
  • A small drop in the breasts provides a normal and natural look.
  • The margins of the breast should be soft and have a smooth transition to the surrounding areas of the chest.
  • The breasts should always shift down a woman's sides when she lies on her back.
