Wrinkle Management in Mississauga, North York, and Southern Ontario
Injectable fillers and neuromodulator have been used in cosmetic surgery for wrinkle therapy since the early 1990’s with no serious side effects documented. Small amount of Injectable fillers and neuromodulator are injected right into the muscles that are responsible for creating wrinkles or undesirable facial muscle effects. This treatment is quick and results usually last for three to six months. The medication temporarily inactivates the muscles that produce wrinkles, thereby causing lines to disappear or diminish dramatically. It usually takes a few days after the injection to notice the wrinkle smoothing effect.
Some of the common areas treated with Injectable fillers and neuromodulator include crow’s feet, frown lines, laugh lines and forehead wrinkles. They can also be injected to weaken the muscles responsible for a “gummy smile” which can improve this appearance dramatically. Injections into muscles that lower the eyebrow or corners of the mouth can produce a form of temporary brow lift or lip lift.
After the first treatment, you may return for follow-up injections. Some doctors report that after several treatments, the effect of Injectable fillers and neuromodulator appears to last longer, often up to several months.
Injectable fillers and neuromodulator can be used by almost anyone; however, patients who are pregnant, breastfeeding or who have a neurological disease should not consider this procedure. New uses for Injectable fillers and neuromodulator include reduction in sweating of hands and armpits (hyperhydrosis) and relief of headaches.
Complications from Injectable fillers and neuromodulator to the upper eyelid include occasional bruising from the injection and a temporary drooping of the eyelid which rarely occurs after frown line injection. The injected medication is used in extremely small amounts and does not spread throughout the body, so you can return to full activity immediately.
Most women receive saline-filled implants which consist of a silicone shell filled with sterile salt. This type of implant is generally less expensive.
Cohesive silicone gel-filled implants
Recently, new cohesive silicone gel implants have become available to Canadian plastic surgery patients. Silicone gel implants tend to feel more like real breast tissue than saline implants and do not ripple or fold as much as saline implants. The current cohesive gel is less likely to seep, run or shift unlike the older type of liquid silicone implants. The silicone implants have two popular subtypes which are the “Round implants” & the “Tear Drop anatomical implants”.

Frequently Asked Questions
Choosing your desired implant for surgery depends on quite a number of multiple factors which include your native breast dimension (height and width) , projection, rib cage width, body anatomy, volume, the thickness of tissue, how you want the breast to look like after surgery. The most effective way of choosing implant size is to try out sizers from your surgeon while wearing a tight body fit.
In cases of implant weights, the bigger the implants the more they will likely weigh. The size of 100 cc silicone implant generally weighs 0.23 lbs while that of the saline implant with size 100 cc weighs 0.21 lbs. Going bigger in size, a 300 cc silicone implant weighs 0.69 pounds and a pair weighs 1.38 pounds. 300 cc saline implants weigh 0.63 lb and a pair weighs 1.26 lbs. In this case, implants weigh almost the same as the exact amount that an actual breast tissue would weigh.
In most cases, the weight varies slightly depending on the manufacturers. There might be a slight weight variation from different manufacturers.
Whether or not a person performs a breast augmentation, the genetic makeup of the individual has a major role to play in the contribution of breast sag. Factors such as weight (increasing or decreasing), gravity, age, skin elasticity & ethnicity have a lot to do when it comes to breast augmentation sagging. In this case, use a very good supportive bra that will help you to reduce the effect of sagging.
The lifespan of breast implant is not actually guaranteed as it is not predictable when the implant lifecycle will eventually end. In which case, no matter how your counseling process has been with your surgeon before the operation, always bear in mind that you cannot have a breast implant that will last a lifetime.
There is no set expiry date attached to breast implants because there has not been a reason to get them replaced unless there is a possible rupture or have other problems. Most times implants exceed more than 12 years and even last up to 30 years in some cases.
There are quite a number of new implants that have been introduced for breast augmentation and are known as “jelly bean”, “gummy bear”, or “highly cohesive gel” implants that are also available for breast augmentation and they have a firmer feeling, but there are no effective long term results to indicate that they are much better or tend to last longer than the saline or silicone implants.
Breast augmentation is normally performed in our Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities. It also has certification by the College of Physicians and Surgeon OHP program.
Since the surgery is under general anesthesia, there is no pain during the procedure.
The greatest period of discomfort for the patient is usually the first twenty-four to forty-eight hours after breast augmentation surgery. Afterward, pains will reduce and there will be no need for too much pain relievers as usual. We do a 24-hour recovery routine that most patients have a very little discomfort after 24 hours. In the case where breast implants are placed in the submuscular position, there will initially cause more discomfort than when it is placed in the subglandular pocket ( in front of the muscle).
In the case of breast augmentation, general anesthesia is commonly used. This will guarantee a painless procedure and also the surgeon can concentrate to deliver his best surgical result.
