Breast Augmentation

 

Dr. William Andrade is an experienced, highly trained board certified Plastic Surgeon (MD, PhD, FRCSC) who is the Chief of Plastic Surgery at Southlake Regional Health Centre.  His private cosmetic facility, The York Plastic Surgery Centre, offers a state of the art, professional and welcoming experience for all patients who come to the facility.  He is proud of his 5 Star Rating on RateMDs and Realself.

 

 How are we above the crowd?

  • We are among the top 10 clinics in Canada by volume of implants inserted yearly, according to our breast implant supplier
  • Our main focus & expertise is breast implant and body contouring surgery 
  • Dr. Andrade trained at U of T, learning the same skills and techniques as the heavily-marketed surgeons in Toronto.  
  • Our beautiful clinic is conveniently located right off Highway 404, only 15 minutes north of Highway 407.  Parking is free.
  • Our fees are often thousands of dollars lower than  comparable procedures done in Toronto, by a surgeon with similar experience.  Why pay more just to cover a Toronto surgeon’s high overhead and marketing budget?

 

How much Does Breast Augmentation Cost at our clinic?

Our prices are highly competitive and include scar gel, surgical bra and all post op visits with Dr. Andrade.

Saline Implants – $6,500

Round Silicone Gel “Gummy Bear” Implants – $7,200

Ideal Implant – $8,000

HST is added to these prices 

Consultations

For patients who are still in the early stages of their journey, we offer a free telephone information session with one of our experienced cosmetic nurses, Rose or Leslee.

The next step is a full consultation by Dr. Andrade.  The $100 + HST fee for the in-person assessment is fully deductible from any procedure or product sold in the clinic, and there is no expiry date.

Dr. Andrade never performs a “virtual consult” since a proper breast examination is an essential part of the consultation.  Similarly he performs the  majority of the consultation himself (some surgeons rely on non-medical “cosmetic consultants” for this important role).

 

VECTRA 3D Imaging

The York Plastic Surgery Centre also offers the added benefit of the Vectra 3D imaging system to give patients a personalized virtual image of the desired outcome. During the visit, patients will gain an overall understanding of the operation, and the risks, benefits and healing time. Important considerations include the type and size of implant, location of the incision, and position of the implant in the body.

Our Patient Care Approach

The York Plastic Surgery Centre employs a highly skilled surgical team including fully credentialed anaesthesiologists who all work at Southlake Hospital.  After surgery, patients receive a call from Dr. Andrade the same evening and a nurse will follow up the next business day.  Dr. Andrade personally sees all patients at their post operative appointments at the clinic ensuring a high standard of post op patient care.

Downtime After Surgery

Dr. Andrade never makes false claims that patients will fully recover in only one day.  Beware the “24 Hour Recovery Breast Augmentation” marketing claim.  No surgeon can change the fact that breast tissue takes many weeks to heal after any operation, no matter how meticulous or careful the surgical technique.  The majority of Dr. Andrade’s patients report feeling well and have returned to their typical self-care activities within only a few days.  Nonetheless, they still need to be mindful of their unique healing progress and lifestyle demands, then modify their daily work and exercise activities accordingly.  For example, a person with a sedentary lifestyle and desk job will return to their regular activities sooner than someone who engages in rigorous exercise and has an active occupation.

How we Optimize Results for our Patients

Dr. Andrade uses the following comprehensive process with patient safety, guided healing, and cosmetic outcomes all being high priorities:

  • Implant selection based on anatomy, sizers, 3D imaging, photos
  • Precise incision and creation of the implant pocket under direct vision with fiberoptic retractor (never blunt tearing of the tissue)
  • Minimal implant handling, use of Keller Funnel, nipple shields and other techniques (so called “No-touch Technique”) to minimize risks
  • Examination of the patient both laying down and sitting up to ensure the implants are in good position before the end of the procedure
  • Layered wound closure with antibiotic-treated sutures to minimize tension on the scar and decrease infection risk
  • Multiple postoperative phone calls and appointments with the surgeon and nurses to ensure that healing is optimal

Choosing Breast Implants – Advantage of a Proper Surgical Consult

Many people find it confusing to find the best implants for their body type.  Dr. Andrade uses these steps to help you pick the best possible implant.

  1. Listen carefully to the person’s desired outcome.  Often clients will bring photographs of other people who have their desired result.
  2. Thorough breast assessment taking into consideration dimensions, tissue thickness, skin tone, nipple position, chest shape, and overall body type.
  3. Trying on sizers:  Dr. Andrade has a wide range of round an teardrop-shaped implants that patients can insert under a special unpadded surgical bra, thereby seeing the actual implants on their chest.
  4. Vectra 3D technology to provide a virtual idea of how the appearance could change after breast augmentation.
