About Breast Augmentation
For women who desire fuller, shapelier breasts, Dr. Mosher performs breast augmentation surgery using either cohesive silicone gel or saline breast implants at his Vancouver area surgery centre. There are numerous approaches to breast augmentation, and not all surgeons offer the full range of options. Dr. Mosher understands the importance of choosing the best implant type, implant pocket location and incision placement, and will help you to decide which options are the best choices for your appearance and your lifestyle.
Vectra® 3D Imaging
We now offer Vectra® 3-D imaging, which creates a three-dimensional simulation of your possible results using photos of your own body. You can visit Sculpt My Dream® to get an idea of how Vectra works for breast augmentation, but for custom results, come in for a consultation with Dr. Mosher.
Achieving natural looking results and a rapid recovery are essential goals of our approach to breast augmentation surgery. Even more important is the careful assessment of your body shape, tissue characteristics and personal desires for breast enhancement. These features will determine the implant type and size that will optimize your breast augmentation result and minimize your risks of revisional breast surgeries during your lifetime.
Breast augmentation is one of Dr. Mosher's most popular cosmetic surgery procedures, and is a safe and effective means of balancing out your figure and enhancing your femininity. Through the placement of breast implants, Dr. Mosher can increase your breast volume, and improve breast asymmetry (breasts of different size). Breast implants can also help early degrees of breast sagging, but typically a breast lift is performed, either alone or with breast augmentation, to address this concern.

Your Breast Augmentation Procedure
Breast augmentation is performed as an outpatient procedure at our surgical facility, using light general anesthesia. Dr. Mosher can make a small incision in the breast fold (inframammary) or around the areola (periareolar) through which he inserts the implant. Dr. Mosher uses careful surgical techniques and instruments that minimize tissue trauma, bruising and bleeding, which results in a much more comfortable and rapid recovery. The implant can be placed beneath the breast tissue (subglandular) or under both the breast tissue and the chest muscles (subpectoral), depending on your particular anatomy, personal preference, and Dr. Mosher's recommendation.
Options for Breast Implants at our Vancouver Area Clinic: Saline or Silicone?
At YES Medspa and Cosmetic Surgery Centre, Dr. Mosher offers both silicone and saline filled breast implants. Vancouver area patients have this choice as both are approved by Health Canada and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, and each has its own advantages and disadvantages.
- Saline implants are filled with a medical grade saltwater solution which is harmlessly absorbed by the body if leakage or rupture occurs. Since saline implants are filled after placement, they allow for more incision options, and also can be adjusted for more refined symmetry of the breasts. Generally, when compared to silicone gel implants, patients find that saline implants do not feel quite as much like natural breast tissue. They have also been associated with a higher rate of revisional surgery attributable to factors such as a higher deflation rate and more frequent problems of implant shell ripples and wrinkles.
- Silicone gel filled implants have rapidly gained in popularity among breast augmentation patients in Vancouver, BC since becoming approved by Health Canada in 2001. These newer implants are filled with a cohesive silicone gel that does not leak or migrate in the event of rupture. Most patients find that silicone implants create results that look and feel more like natural breasts. The more cohesive or firmer silicone gel in these implants has led to the nickname of "gummy bear" implants. Round moderately cohesive silicone gel and anatomical shaped highly cohesive silicone gel implants are most frequently recommended by Dr. Mosher.
Recovery and Results
Dr. Mosher's high level of experience and surgical skill allows him to minimize stretching and trauma to surrounding tissues, which greatly reduces post-operative discomfort. Some swelling and discomfort are to be expected, and these are managed with oral medications, stretching exercises and cool compresses. You will wear a snug-fitting sports bra for approximately 2 weeks to provide support and to help with healing.
Our unique program for rapid recovery following this surgery allows many of our patients to go out for dinner in the evening following their surgery. Most women who choose breast augmentation in Vancouver return to light activity and work within a few days of their surgery, but strenuous exercise or weight lifting must be avoided for at least 4 weeks. Your breasts will look noticeably larger right away, but it will take up to 3 months for the tissues to relax and for the breasts to "settle" into a more natural shape.
Breast augmentation involves many decisions. Perhaps the most important of these is choosing a surgeon with the experience and ability to create the beautiful results you seek. Dr. Mosher is a breast augmentation specialist, who places patient safety and satisfaction above all else.
