Should Your Breast Implants Be Placed Under or Over the Chest Wall Muscle?

Dr. Robert Shenker takes us through the process of deciding if a patient’s breast implants should be placed under or over the muscle of their chest wall. Recently, the American Society of Plastic Surgery published the statistics showing the most common and sought-after cosmetic procedures of 2017. As has been the case for many years, the single most common procedure done in North America is breast augmentation, and it’s popular with women in the greater Waterloo and London, Ontario, areas too. It’s favoured because it works, it’s safe, and it makes patients happy! Despite its popularity, breast augmentation is not without … Continue reading »

Can Breast Augmentation Look Natural?

Addressing a common concern about breast augmentation surgery. Breast augmentation is by far the most popular plastic surgery procedure in North America.

The anxiety over an unnatural-looking or unnatural-feeling breast augmentation outcome prevents many Kitchener-Waterloo, London, and Southern Ontario women from pursuing breast augmentation.

Let’s talk tummy tucks.

You’ve had a baby, congratulations! And you’ve lost your ‘baby weight’, congratulations, again! But is that extra stretched skin keeping you from feeling your fabulous, ‘yummy mummy‘ self? Let’s talk tummy tucks. What’s a tummy tuck? An abdominoplasty, or ‘tummy tuck’ as we more commonly know it, is a surgical procedure that removes excess skin and fat from the middle and lower abdomen.
