Breast Augmentation in Barrie, Ontario
Breast Augmentation is the second most popular cosmetic surgical procedure in Canada.
Breast augmentation, also known as augmentation mammoplasty, is a cosmetic surgery procedure to enhance the size and shape of a woman’s breast for a number of reasons:

The choice of implant material, implant size, shape and other features will be determined based on your breast anatomy, body type and your desired increase in size.
Breast implants are medical devices with solid silicone, rubber shells. The implant shell may be filled with either saline solution (sterile saltwater) or elastic silicone gel.

Breast implants vary both by filler and in size, but there are additional features to consider:
Benefits of Breast Augmentation
The Ideal Candidate for Breast Augmentation
The best candidates for breast augmentation are women who are looking for improvement, not perfection, in the way they look. If you’re physically healthy and realistic in your expectations, you may be a good candidate.
Adult women of any age can benefit greatly from the physical and emotional enhancement breast implants can provide. However, it is usually recommended that a woman’s breasts are fully developed prior to placement of breast implants. Saline or silicone implants may be recommended at a younger age if used for reconstruction purposes.
