Silicone and Saline Implants

December 21st, 2018 by alissa

Dr Kara was invited to visit an implant manufacturing facility in Europe. As a gift, they made Dr. Kara implants with his business card in them!

There are two major types of breasts implants used in breast augmentation:

Silicone Implants: This type of implant is filled with silicone gel. The implant is pre-filled with the gel and then surgically placed inside the breasts. Some surgeons believe that silicone implants give your breasts a more natural appearance and feel because they resemble breast tissue better. Because of the gel’s viscosity you rippling is less of an issue when compared to saline implants. However, ruptures are more difficult to detect because the silicone tends to stay together and doesn’t migrate as much.

Saline Implants: A saline solution is used to fill this type of implant, and this done during the surgery. After the implant shell is placed in the body, a specific amount of saline is injected into the shells to achieve the desired size. Saline implants typically require a smaller incision than silicone implants. Ruptures in saline implants are easily detectable. When a saline implant ruptures, the saline leaks out of it and into the body, where it is easily and harmlessly absorbed by the body. You can detect the rupture by seeing the size/shape change in the affected breast.

But how about if you could combine the natural look and feel of silicone with the easy detection of a rupture in saline?

The latest in implant technology is the Ideal Implant. The Ideal Implant combines the benefits of both!

Holiday Nip & Tuck? Why Not!

December 12th, 2018 by alan

The holiday season is a great time to have some “me-time”. I know, you are busy! But hear me out!

The holiday season is perfect for surgical and nonsurgical aesthetic enhancement for a couple reasons:

1. Winter clothing, like big cozy sweaters and warm pants are perfect for concealing any swelling and bruising and any necessary compression garments needed. Shawls, scarves and the general state of more layers in your clothing all aide in hiding your secret – until you are ready to reveal! They also do well for protecting your incisions.

2. The timing is right – you have a built in break, you have plenty of time to heal before the summer sun hits. Cuddle up by the fire and watch holiday movies with your family, while you recover.

3. It’s also a great time of year to score a holiday deal. Whether it be a discount or a bonus treatment – you are likely to get the most bang for your buck this holiday season!

Come in for your consult! We are located in Toronto, Whitby and Scarborough.

BII – Breast Implant Illness

November 28th, 2018 by alan

You may have heard some of the recent media coverage of Breast Implant-Associated Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma (BIA-ALCL).  Patients are reading the stories and getting alarmed and stressed out. We understand the fear and confusion.

Dr. Kara is here as a resource to educate and help his patients and any patients out there impacted by ALCL that are looking for a new doctor.

Now, let’s set the record straight and give you some answers to your questions.

ALCL is very rare and only occurs with textured surface implants, known as Biocell. Please be assured that ALCL has never occurred with smooth implants. It is still very safe to get implants.

For existing patients, Dr. Kara works almost exclusively with smooth implants, NOT Biocell.

Remember, we are here as a resource and will see, help and advise anyone with questions or concerns.

If you believe you may have Biocell textured surface implants, please schedule a consultation with us to discuss your options and ensure your safety.
