Breast Augment

Breast Augmentation Surgery Procedure Abbotsford

Getting breast implants is the most popular way women choose to enhance the size of their breasts. Typically, women pursue having a breast augmentation due to loss of volume after pregnancy/breast feeding, breast asymmetry (two different sized breasts), sagging of the breasts and to look more feminine due to being self-conscious. As a Board Certified, Canadian trained Plastic Surgeon working in the Greater Vancouver area, Dr. Brown will strive to give you the best possible cosmetic surgery result you can expect.

In your one-on-one consultation with Dr. Brown in our Abbotsford, BC office, he will discuss:

  • If you are a candidate for a breast augmentation
  • Go over your expectations for your surgical goal
  • What to expect before and after your surgery
  • What size of implant would best be suited for your body type
  • What type of implant will be used, silicone gel or saline (silicone gel is our most popular)
  • Where the implants will be placed (on top of or under the muscle)
  • Where the incision will be made (inframammary or periareolar)
  • The benefits and potential risks with having a breast augmentation

You will be able to try on our sample implants in a variety of sizes to help you decide the size of implant to choose. It is recommended to wear a non-padded or push-up bra in order for you to see the most natural effect possible with the sample implant.

Once you are done your consultation, you will be given a quote for the surgery, which is good for one year. This quote includes the fee for Dr. Brown, the clinic, the implants and follow-up appointments with Dr. Brown. The only extra cost to you would be the pain medication that would be prescribed to you for after your surgery and general lab work (if you do not have a BC Care Card). You will be given a booklet of information to take home with you which will include your quote, more information on the breast augmentation surgery, clinic information and financing options.
