Breast augmentation is one of the most frequently performed cosmetic surgery procedures in Canada. It can give women with small or unevenly sized breasts a fuller, firmer, more proportioned look through the placement of implants in the breast. Women may elect to undergo breast augmentation for many different medical and aesthetic motivations, including balancing breast size and compensating for reduced breast mass after pregnancy or surgery. The procedure may be combined with others such as a breast lift.
Implants are silicone shells filled with either saline (salt water) or silicone gel. They are placed behind each breast, underneath either breast tissue or the chest wall muscle. The procedure lasts one to two hours and is typically performed with general anesthesia.

A breast lift, or mastopexy, is performed to return youthful shape and lift to breasts that have sagged as a result of weight loss, pregnancy, loss of the skin's natural elasticity or simply the effects of gravity. The procedure can also reduce areolar size (the dark skin surrounding the nipple), and it can be combined with breast augmentation for added breast volume and firmness. Results are longer lasting with smaller breasts.
Women planning to have children are advised to postpone surgery since pregnancy can counteract its effects by stretching the skin. However, mastopexy typically would still allow breast feeding.
