Breast Augmentation Surgery
Surveys of breast augmentation patients reveal over 90% satisfaction, but will breast augmentation be right for you? Our Breast Augmentation Program has established its superb reputation based on personalized attention to your needs and meticulous surgical care. You will receive personal pre-operative counselling with Dr. Kreidstein (not a group session with a ’patient-care coordinator’ or ‘breast augmentation consultant’ as is done in some practices).
Your surgery will be performed entirely by Dr. Kreidstein (no residents, fellows or other trainees are involved in your care), a Royal College Certified Anaesthetist will attend exclusively to your safety and comfort, and an expert and caring team of Registered Nurses will support this care both before and after your surgery. Following surgery, you will have 24/7 access to advice from Dr. Kreidstein. It’s your health, accept no compromises.

An incision is made either underneath the breast just above the crease, around the lower edge of the areola (the pigmented area surrounding the nipple) or in the armpit.

Our most popular procedures are axillary/saline implant augmentation, and inframammary/cohesive gel implant augmentation. Of course, many variations on these procedures are available depending on your individual needs.
Saline implants have a long history of safety, and can be inserted through an almost undetectable armpit (axillary) incision. This procedure is most popular with our younger patients.
Cohesive silicone gel implants were introduced in Europe in 1995, and we have used them since 2002. They have established an excellent reputation for safety, and are most popular in our patients with breast volume loss following pregnancy. They offer a much more natural ‘feel’ than the saline implants. We specialize in Dual Plane augmentation, and find this technique is particularly effective at producing a natural appearing result while correcting and preventing sagging of breast tissues.
