Proportionally smaller breasts (mammary hypotrophy, after a significant weight loss, pregnancy or lactation (breast involution) are the most common reasons to consider such a surgery
What is a breast augmentation
Breast augmentation is a plastic surgery procedure that is chosen when you want to change the size of your breasts; typically it is to increase the bust for a larger bust line.
The ideal candidate
Breast augmentation is individualized and involves the use of either silicone or saline implants for women wanting to enhance the loss of volume to their bust line after weight loss, pregnancy and breast feeding. Breast augmentation can partially correct sagging breasts (ptosis), improving the ratio between the content and the skin envelope. Dr. Zadeh often performs this procedure in combination with a mastopexy (breast lift).
Breast augmentation involves the insertion of silicone gel or saline prosthesis (implants). The prosthesis can be inserted through an incision made in the crease of the breast (junction area of the breast on the chest wall) or through an incision near the armpit. In all cases the scars are minimal and discreet. Every case is different and options will be discussed with Dr. Teanoosh Zadeh during the initial consultation.
Breast augmentation surgery is performed under general anesthesia to assure patient safety and comfort.
All risks and complications will be thoroughly explained during your initial consultation with Dr. Zadeh.
- Capsular contraction
- Altered sensitivity to the nipples
Post operative and healing
Follow up visits are made regularly with Dr. Zadeh. Pain and discomfort can easily be controlled with prescribed pain medication and usually diminish within three to four days. After three to six months, tissues are sufficiently relaxed to see the quality of the final result. Avoiding strenuous physical activity, it is possible to resume normal activities and resume work within two weeks. Dr. Zadeh often recommends IPL treatments to make scars even less noticeable.

“My sister and I both had breast augmentation surgery 1 month aqo. We are both thrilled at our new breasts, very natural looking! We were both extremely nervous at the general anesthesia, but both Dr. Zadeh and his staff took such good care of us before and after the surgery that our worries vanished. We recommend this doctor for anyone looking for a highly knowledgeable and perfectionist plastic surgeon for a breast augmentation! All the best and good luck to all going under the knife” – Laura – Montreal
