Breast Augmentation Options

Our Vancouver breast augmentation patients have a number of choices available, ranging from breast implant size to incision location, giving them the opportunity to tailor the procedure to their specific goals. Dr. Mathew Mosher helps his patients understand all their options and then combines his extensive experience with the latest innovations to consistently provide beautiful and long-lasting results.

Breast Implants

Dr. Mosher’s extensive experience with the most recent innovations in breast implants gives his Vancouver-area patients options not available at most other practices. These options help create natural-looking breast enhancement that complements each patient’s individual body type. Our practice is one of the few in Western Canada to offer the saline-filled IDEAL Implant®. The IDEAL implant offers women the choice of a saline implant that has some of the more natural feel and movement of cohesive silicone gel implants. You can learn more about implant options on our Breast Augmentation FAQ page.

Silicone Gel or Saline Implants?

One of the first decisions patients make is choosing the implant material that most effectively creates the look and feel they want. We offer a variety of Health Canada-approved implants for breast augmentation that are filled with either silicone gel or saline. The most commonly used implants are highly cohesive silicone-gel implants from Allergan®. These implants have a more cohesive or firmer gel filler material that helps maintain the shape of the implant and reduce visible rippling. Not all cohesive silicone-gel implants are the same, but Dr. Mosher uses his experience to recommend the best options for you.

Implant Shape and Profile

Dr. Mosher offers a variety of breast implant shapes and profiles to suit a wide array of body types. An implant’s profile refers to the amount of projection in relation to the base diameter. Dr. Mosher analyzes your body type during your private consultation to determine which size, shape and profile will provide you with the results you desire. This analysis also includes the use of the VECTRA® 3-D imaging technology which gives you the chance to see potential results with different sizes of implants. Ours was the first practice in the Vancouver area to offer this technology, part of Dr. Mosher’s commitment to helping patients understand and feel comfortable with all aspects of the surgical planning process.

Women also consider breast enhancement surgery to correct asymmetrical (uneven) breasts or as part of revision breast surgery to remove or replace implants.

Incision Methods

Breast augmentation patients can choose the incision location based on implant type and personal preference. Dr. Mosher can recommend which of the following incision patterns would be most beneficial:

  • Inframammary Incision: along the natural crease under the breast
  • Periareolar Incision: around the lower edge of the areola (the dark skin surrounding the nipple)

Dr. Mosher explains the benefits of each option, helping you understand how your body type and the type of implant factors into deciding which type of incision would be most effective.

Implant Location

Dr. Mosher inserts the implant through the incision into a pocket he creates above or below the pectoral muscle. One method isn’t necessarily better than the other, but your best option will depend on a variety of factors, which Dr. Mosher can help you determine.
