Toronto Breast Surgeon Now Offers INSPIRA(R) Implants

The INSPIRA line of cohesive-gel breast implants by Allergan recently became available in Canada and is now being used by Dr. Michael Weinberg for breast augmentation in Toronto.

Dr. Michael Weinberg of Mississauga Cosmetic Surgery & Laser Clinic is delighted to announce that the latest cohesive-gel implants from Allergan, the INSPIRA implants, are now available to his patients seeking breast augmentation in Toronto.

While INSPIRA implants have been available in other countries since 1994, they were only recently approved for use in Canada. Dr. Weinberg, who practices plastic surgery in Toronto, has already used them in a number of breast augmentation surgeries at his two clinics: the Mississauga Cosmetic Surgery & Laser Clinic and the Toronto Plastic Surgery Clinic.

The INSPIRA line includes 300 options in round, smooth and textured silicone-filled breast implants, which offers patients greater choices in both degree of cohesiveness and profile. Dr. Weinberg says this gives him an increased ability to customize and individualize the results he can achieve with breast implants. Toronto and Mississauga patients can rest assured they are in capable hands with Dr. Weinberg. As one of the leading breast augmentation surgeons in Ontario, he is uniquely qualified to help patients decide which implants are right for them.

“Round implants are the most popular choice among North American women, who want added fullness at the tops of their breasts,” Dr. Weinberg says. “The INSPIRA line offers more choices in round implants, which allows women more options in size and profile while still providing an appropriate fit for their bodies.”

The cohesiveness of the implants’ filling reduces the chance of rippling, thereby allowing the implants to be placed above the chest wall muscle in more cases. The texture of the gel fill has been developed to provide a very natural look and feel.

These implants also provide more choices for Toronto-area women undergoing breast implant revision surgery. As a result of the recent Poly Implant Prosthèse (PIP) implant scare, a number of Ontario women who have previously undergone breast augmentation surgery outside of Canada have sought Dr. Weinberg’s assistance in replacing their implants. The French PIP implants created concern after they were found to contain industrial-grade silicone, rather than its medical-grade counterpart.

“The low rate of capsular contracture seen with INSPIRA implants that are in use outside Canada make them a good option for breast revision surgery as well,” Dr. Weinberg says.

He earned a master's degree in medical biophysics and a doctorate in medicine from University of Toronto, followed by a residency in plastic surgery and a fellowship in head and neck surgery at Toronto General Hospital.

He is also an adjunct lecturer for the University of Toronto Department of Plastic Surgery. In practice since 1996, he is the founder of the Mississauga Cosmetic Surgery & Laser Clinic, a CAAASF-accredited surgical facility, and has a second office in downtown Toronto near Yorkville.
