Fantastic Surgeon

Dr. Weinberg is a fantastic surgeon. I am at a loss for words as to how happy I am with the results of my bilateral breast reduction. Dr. Weinberg is thorough, witty (because who doesn't love a sense of humour) and always made me feel comfortable. He understood what I wanted and exceeded my expectations. The ladies that work at the Mississauga location are wonderful and were able to answer all of my questions leading up to surgery and any I had post-op. I highly recommend The Toronto and Mississauga Plastic Surgery Clinic!

Exceeded my expectations

Dr Weinberg is a very amazing doctor, very kind and friendly, and so is the staff that works at his clinic, I had a breast reduction done 4 months ago and never expected such amazing results, the amount of compliments I get due to his work is such a great feeling...it is very hard to find a doctor who actually cares about his clients after surgery and he has been, follow ups every month since my procedure, making sure that I’m healing as expected.... I’m still in shock every time I see my results because what I was told was impossible as for the results I was looking for, he has over exceeded my expectations. Would most definitely work with him again in the near future

Where are the Incisions Made?
A breast implantation procedure requires the implant to be placed inside the chest. In order to accomplish this, the surgeon must make an incision. There are three possible incision sites and each tends to fade over time making them almost invisible. The incisions are hidden under clothing and only visible if you are wearing certain types of swimwear. Periareolar: This incision is made along the lower border of the areola (nipple). Periareolar incisions blend in with the darker skin that makes up the areola. Inframammary fold: This incision is made under breast just above the crease where the breast connects to the chest wall. Inframammary fold incisions are the most common. Transaxillary: This incision is made under the arm and done with an endoscope.Transaxillary incisions are only done when the implant itself is small enough to be inserted through the arm area and into the breast.
The shape and size of the implants will vary, but they can be made of only two Health Canada-approved materials, saline or silicone gel. Saline implants: These contain an elastomer silicone shell that is filled with a sterile saline or saltwater solution and can be inserted empty and filled once they are in place. Saline can be absorbed into the body without issue should the implants rupture. These implants are usually inserted via incisions made in the armpit or around the nipple. Silicone gel implants: These consist of a silicone outer shell that is filled with silicone gel. They must be inserted full and put in place through incisions made at the crease of the breast. Should this type of implant rupture, the gel will leak into the body and must be removed. As with both type of implants, leaking and rupturing is rare and shouldn’t be a cause for concern.
Implants can be placed in two ways. There is sub-glandular placement (behind the breast tissue, under the pectoral muscle) which creates a more rounded look, and sub-muscular placement which is less round but more natural. The thickness of your tissue will determine where the implant is placed. Generally, the sub-muscular placement is done because the area under the pectoral muscle is more forgiving and does not interfere with mammograms and the screening technology used to test for breast cancer.
Breast implants are intended to last a lifetime. Some people do report that the implants seem to deflate or lose their shape after 10 years. This can be corrected through implant replacement surgery during which the old implant is removed and a new one is put in its place.
