Breast Augmentation

Considering Breast Augmentation / Boob Job?

Breast augmentation surgery, sometimes referred to as a boob job by patients, involves using breast implants or fat transfer to enhance your breasts. There are many reasons you may consider undergoing Ottawa breast augmentation surgery. This powerful surgical technique is capable of increasing the breast’s natural size and volume, and can also be used to help reverse the effects of pregnancy and weight changes. Surgery can also correct any asymmetry that may be present. Ottawa Breast augmentation surgery is a safe and effective technique that can deliver beautiful, natural results.


What is a Boob Job / Breast Augmentation Surgery?

A boob job is a surgical procedure to enhance the size and shape of a womans breasts. During the procedure, breast implants are inserted under the breast tissue or chest muscles. The breast implants are typically made of either silicone or saline and come in a variety of shapes and sizes. The size and shape chosen is based on the desired look and the patients body type.

Breast augmentation surgery is a very popular procedure and is often used to improve the aesthetic look of the breasts. It can help to achieve symmetry, balance out uneven breasts, or increase the size of small breasts. Other benefits include improved confidence and selfimage. It is important to remember that the decision to undergo a breast augmentation procedure should be made only after careful consideration and consultation with a qualified plastic surgeon.

The recovery period of a breast augmentation procedure can take up to several weeks, depending on the individual. During this time, patients are usually advised to wear a supportive bra, avoid strenuous activity and take pain medications as needed. The results of the procedure can last for several years, and checkups with a plastic surgeon are recommended to ensure the breast implants are in good condition.


The Benefits of Breast Augmentation / Boob Job

Breast augmentation is a cosmetic procedure that is designed to increase the size and fullness of a womans breasts. It can be used for both reconstructive and aesthetic purposes and it is our most popular plastic surgery procedure. There are many benefits to breast augmentation that make it an attractive choice for many women.

One of the most obvious benefits to breast augmentation is an immediate increase in the size and fullness of the breasts. The procedure can produce dramatic results and help a woman achieve the look she desires. Additionally, the procedure can even out asymmetrical breasts, allowing a woman to feel more comfortable in her own skin.

Another benefit of a boob job is the boost in selfconfidence that it can provide. Women who feel uncomfortable with the size of their breasts often report feeling more confident after the procedure. This can lead to improved selfesteem, increased selfimage and even improved quality of life in general.

Finally, breast augmentation can also provide health benefits. For example, the procedure can improve posture and reduce neck and back pain. Additionally, it can provide relief for women who have experienced sagging or drooping breasts due to pregnancy, breastfeeding or natural aging.

Overall, breast augmentation surgery is a safe and effective way to improve the size and appearance of a womans breasts. It can provide dramatic results, boost confidence and even provide health benefits. It is important to discuss the procedure with a qualified plastic surgeon in order to ensure desired results and minimal risks.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between saline and silicone breast implants?

At Kanata Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery, both silicone and saline breast implants are available to our patients. Most patients prefer the use of silicone breast implants as they look and feel more natural than saline. Both implant types are safe and fully approved by Health Canada. Our surgeons will be able to provide you with the information you need to make a fully informed decision about which implant type you prefer.

Are there different implant shapes available?

Yes. Breast implants either come in round or anatomic (sometimes known as “tear drop” ) shapes. While most patients choose round implants, there are times when anatomic implants are a better option. The choice between the two will depend on your natural anatomy as well as your goals and expectations.

Is it better to have the breast implants placed on top or below the muscle?

Another decision that is made before surgery is the location of implant placement. Breast implants can be placed either above the pectoralis major muscle (termed “subglandular”) or beneath it (termed “submuscular”). Another implant placement position commonly used is a combination of the two, know as “dual plane”. While Dr. Lacey has extensive experience with each of these placement positions, there may be one that is best suited to meet your goals.

Do I need a breast lift as well?

Whether due to weight changes, past pregnancy, or age, it is not uncommon for patients to inquire about the combination of a breast lift and augmentation at the same time. In many cases these procedures can be combined to provide a youthful, natural result. In some cases however it is necessary to perform these as two separate operations in order to achieve the best possible aesthetic outcome while limiting your chance of developing a complication.

Am I a candidate for breast augmentation surgery?

The best way to determine if you are a candidate for one of the above procedures is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Lacey. At your consultation the surgeons will listen to your concerns and discuss what treatment option would be most appropriate. You will have opportunities to ask questions with the surgeons and can review before and after photos from past patients.
