We are very proud to announce the arrival at Lotus of a brand new technology that will make choosing your breast implant much easier: 3D breast augmentation simulation!

We are one of the first Cosmetic Surgery Centres in Canada to offer this exciting new computer simulation. Developed by a Swiss company named Crisalix, the process is simple, effective, and, of course, entirely secure and confidential.

Who is a candidate?
Breasts can lose volume and shape after weight loss, childbirth or as a result of aging. Some women have naturally smaller breasts as a result of their genetics. Breast augmentation can successfully and safely enhance both the size and shape of the breasts. In some cases, a breast lift can be done in combination with augmentation to give the best possible appearance.

How is breast augmentation performed?
Cohesive gel implants are primarily used for breast augmentation. Small incisions are placed in the fold beneath the breast or around the nipple. The implants are then inserted beneath the pectoral muscle or, in some cases, beneath the breast tissue itself.

The surgery is performed under a general anaesthetic, but you will be able to go home immediately after surgery; an overnight stay is not required. The surgery takes approximately 1 ½ hours.

What is the recovery period like?
Swelling and discomfort after surgery are normal for a few days. Dr. Hynes will prescribe pain medication for you, as well as antibiotics to minimize the chances of infection. You will be able to shower within less than a week. The stitches are hidden below the surface of the skin and will be absorbed by the body.

Depending on your type of work, you may return within less than two weeks of surgery. Although the skin will be healed within a week or so, it will be three or four weeks until full activities can be resumed (i.e., sports or heavy lifting).

What are the risks?
All surgery carries certain risks and breast augmentation surgery is no exception. These include bleeding, infection, changes in nipple sensation, and “contracture” or scarring around the implant. Fortunately, most of these complications are rare. Dr. Hynes will review all the risks of breast augmentation with you in detail during your cosmetic consultation.
