Dr. Mahmood Kara, a breast augmentation specialist in Toronto, says the majority of his patients choose silicone implants over saline. His findings correspond with a recent study from ASAPS.

Dr. Mahmood Kara has noticed that a significant number of his patients prefer silicone implants for their breast augmentation in Toronto. Dr. Kara offers his patients both silicone and saline implants as part of the range of options he provides to help create individualized, natural-looking results.

"Silicone is the more popular choice among my breast augmentation patients," Dr. Kara says. "Many women feel that silicone has a much more natural feel and appearance."

Dr. Saed Al-Habib is a staff surgeon in Dr. Kara’s practice who specializes in breast reconstruction, body contouring and liposuction in Toronto. He says the preference for silicone implants among their patients aligns with statistics from The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, which show that 62 percent of American women who had the procedure in 2010 chose silicone.

"It appears that women everywhere prefer the natural feel of silicone implants," Dr. Al-Habib says. "There are a number of benefits to both silicone and saline implants, but choosing the best option comes down to personal preferences."    

Dr. Kara says many women are combining their breast augmentation surgery with other procedures, such as a tummy tuck in Toronto. This can help patients cut down on the recovery time and cost that would be involved with having separate procedures.

Combining procedures is also popular with patients who want to address multiple areas of the body at once for more comprehensive results.

"Recent mothers often come to us with questions about how they can restore their bodies following pregnancy and breastfeeding," Dr. Kara says. "Depending on a person's cosmetic goals, I usually recommend combining breast augmentation with a tummy tuck and liposuction. These procedures contour the body to help women look and feel their best."

Dr. Kara and his team are dedicated to helping patients find the most effective solutions to their cosmetic needs.

"Choosing the perfect implants or which procedure will create the best results is different for every patient," Dr. Kara says. "I strongly believe in educating patients on all available options, and then offering my opinion about the best choice."
