You're busy. You don't have time to sit at home, waiting to recover from surgery. With 24 hour breast augmentation, you can have your surgery and get back to normal light activities in a day or two. Have surgery this weekend and be at the beach the same evening. You don't have to wait for a long time to get your surgery, no matter when you want it! Evening and weekend consultation and surgery times available.

You don't feel like your body is balanced enough on top because you don't have curves where you want — and padded bras don't help. You know you want bigger breasts, but just can't afford to take a week off from work.

You have the option of getting what you feel you're missing. You can have bigger breasts that will contribute to the sexier, more womanly shape you've always wanted. 24 hour breast augmentation gives you what you want, without lengthy downtime and waiting around for your results to appear. Dr Kara is a board certified plastic surgeon who has over 30 years of experience. In fact, he was one of the first in Canada to offer 24 hour recovery, and has been performing it since 2004.

Concerned about asymmetry? There are several methods of resolving asymmetry, such as choosing different sized implants, getting a breast lift or undergoing a breast reduction.

Dr. Mahmood Kara specializes in 24 hour breast augmentation

Most of the time, patients are advised to stay home from work or school for at least 3-4 days after their surgery. This is recommended because of surgical techniques that cause more trauma than necessary.

Dr. Kara, on the other hand, understands that you're busy and can't take so many days off from your life. That's why he performs 24 Hour Recovery® breast augmentation, so you can get back to normal, light activities faster. This is a proprietary technique that very few surgeons in Canada perform and, in fact, Dr. Kara was one of the first to offer it in the country. He's been performing the procedure since 2004!

Dr. Kara is one of the top surgeons in Canada that does breast implants, especially well known for a fantastic team of ladies and the 24 Hour / Out to Dinner Recovery. He was also invited to go to the factory in Leiden, Netherlands to learn and understand how implants are actually made. When you choose Dr. Kara as your surgeon, you not only get an experienced doctor with over 30 years of performing breast augmentation, you get someone who is intimately familiar with breast implants. Here are two implants which have his business card that he made himself. Come in for a piece of cake, and a latte and Dr. Kara can tell you how they're made!

Get Scar Treatments

Want to reduce the appearance of your scars? Get scar treatments with our advanced CO2 laser. This revolutionary technology will reduce the appearance and irregular texture of your scars. On their own, scars take about a year to fade but with our C02 laser, you'll get rid of them much faster.

Practically NO Bleeding or Bruising

Dr. Kara minimizes the amount of blood lost during surgery and the rate of bruising afterward with his unique BloodStop™ Protocol. In fact, we only see about 1 out of 150 patients get a bruise!

How do I choose the right breast implant size?

We spend a great deal of time in the pre-surgery planning phase to help you choose the right size for your breast implants Toronto, because there are so many that are available. While you may have a rough idea of what you'd like, we'll give you a range of sizes that will allow for a lower complication rate, give you better looking results and reduce the chance of you having to undergo revision breast augmentation surgery Toronto. There's no guesswork involved. You'll try on sizers to see how you'll look, using implants from the three top breast implant manufacturers in Canada: Mentor and Allergan (Natrelle breast implants Canada and Inspira).

Two factors are considered when choosing size for nice breast implants: your skin laxity and your body dimensions.

Skin laxity determines the maximum size, because your skin will only stretch so much until it starts to tear. Your skin elasticity will be measured.

Body dimensions, including base width of your breasts as well as the distance between the nipple and inframammary fold, are measured to determine how big of an implant pocket can be made. If you choose an implant that's too big, it will go beyond your natural breast mound. This leads to a number of complications, including "bottoming out" (the implant falls out of the pocket), symmastia (your breasts joining together as one) and abnormal looking breasts.

When you choose the right size and shape based on our measuring technique, studies have found that it reduces infection and the recovery time. It also reduces the reoperation rate from up to 30% in 7 years to under 5%.

It's not a myth; the rapid recovery breast augmentation technique is based on the research of an American surgeon, Dr. J.B. Tebbetts. In his studies, Dr. Tebbetts found that 96% of a group of 627 patients went back to their full, normal activities within just 24 hours of their breast augmentation!

Dr. Kara applies surgical techniques that are far less traumatic than those that are more traditional. The most notable of these advanced techniques are:

  • Selecting an implant that's the most suitable size and shape for you.
  • Administering just the right amount of anesthesia: nothing more and nothing less.
  • Planning what to exactly do during surgery, rather than just "winging it."
  • Reducing and even eliminating the amount of bleeding that occurs during surgery by an astounding 95% as compared to other techniques, thereby minimizing pain, bruising and inflammation, as well as the risk of capsular contracture. This is achieved by cauterizing the tissues, instead of cutting them, as well as applying a unique BloodStop™ Protocol.
  • Avoiding blunt dissection when creating a pocket for the implant, which basically involves the surgeon ripping and tearing your tissues without seeing where they're doing it. Instead, Dr. Kara uses specially designed surgical instruments to see exactly where to make the pocket without applying excessive pressure and trauma.
  • Only specific areas are targeted which results in not only less damage to the interior of the breast but also less scar tissue.
  • Working with a highly trained and experienced surgical team (anesthetist and nurses) that all know exactly what to do.
  • Giving you comprehensive details on how to prepare for your breast augmentation experience and what to do to properly recover.

Unlike other surgeons who recommend that you don't lift your arms while you recover, we recommend it after your flash recovery breast augmentation Toronto! You'll be able to lift your arms over your head to help ease swelling. You can take a shower and wash your hair, get dressed and go out to shop or eat the evening of your surgery day.

Rapid recovery breast augmentation surgery steps


  • You won't need to stop smoking before your breast augmentation surgery procedure, but it's better if you do at least 2 weeks before. That wil help improve your recovery from breast augmentation.
  • You may need to get a mammogram before your surgery, especially if breast cancer runs in your family.
  • Wear comfortable clothing on the day of your surgery, like a loose fitting top and bottoms with an elasticized waist.
  • You may need to avoid food and drink on the night before your surgery.

Surgery: how breast augmentation is done

Your surgery takes only 30 to 45 minutes. It doesn't take long because Dr. Kara plans the surgery precisely, uses tools that are specially designed to reduce trauma and only targets the tissues that need to be modified to reduce the amount of scar tissue. He knows exactly what to do and uses the right tools, so he never has to speed through your procedure.

  • Your surgery will be performed at our private state-of-the-art surgical facility located in Rouge Valley Centenary Hospital. Dr. Kara is the only plastic surgeon in the Toronto area with a private surgical facility in a hospital. You'll be able to enjoy the privacy and comfort of a private facility along with the emergency capabilities of a public hospital. Dr Kara is considered by many to be the best breast augmentation doctor in Toronto.
  • You will be administered anesthesia for your comfort.
  • For 24 hour recovery, incisions are made inconspicuously in the breast fold and an implant pocket is meticulously made. Transaxillary breast augmentation can also be performed, however the technique generally involves a longer recovery period.
  • A breast implant is inserted into the created pocket, which may be under the pectoral muscle (submuscular) or under the breast tissue (subglandular).
  • Sutures are carefully placed to close the incisions.

You won't feel nauseous once the surgery is done, but will probably feel a little tired.

Expect to stay at our surgical facility for at least 3 hours. That time includes the pre-op, the breast augmentation surgery time itself, and recovery under observation.

What will my scars look like?

Scarring is probably a big concern for you, like it is for us! We know you don't want bad scars. You can be assured that your scars will fade properly with care techniques that Dr. Kara prescribes. This includes scar therapy with CO2 fractional laser. The therapy will make your scars fade as much as possible!

Recovery period: How is breast augmentation recovery?

  • Before leaving our surgical center, you will be given specific instructions that will include how to care for your breasts following surgery. Following them will ensure a smoother 24 hour breast augmentation recovery. This includes taking any medications to help with your recovery and avoiding certain medications that may promote bleeding and bruising (for example, ibuprofen after breast augmentation may increase bleeding).
  • Your breasts may be a little sore after the procedure but this should go away soon. This won't stop you from going out in the evening of your surgery day so your recovery for breast implants will be minimal.
  • Sleep on your back but with your head propped up on pillows. This alleviates pressure on your chest and alleviates swelling.
  • You'll need to stretch your arms a bit to alleviate swelling.
  • You can get back to normal activities in 24 hours, but you should avoid strenuous activity, like weightlifting and other exercises targeting the pectoral muscles, for 3 weeks. This restriction is only there to protect your incisions so they don't split.
  • At 1 week, you'll be taught how to properly massage your breasts to help them settle better.
  • You will need to wear a compression bra after surgery.

Cleavage and Breast Augmentation

Décolletage. One of the classic signs of beauty and seductive femininity, showing the neck, the shoulders, and the chest, cleavage dates back to the 11th century. Aesthetic cleavage was perceived as a sign of beauty, wealth and social stature. Not much different from today when you think about it.

These days, when a woman is considering breast augmentation, the subject of cleavage is often mentioned. Mostly for the same reasons. After all, cleavage flirts and flaunts, and you might agree that is often one of those feminine factors that women hope to have.

Will Breast Augmentation Give Me Nice Cleavage?

The truth is…it might. Enhancing your cleavage is not as easy as it sounds. While you can take measures to make your breasts bigger, it's not guaranteed to give you cleavage. In fact, for some women, it may be impossible.

So the real truth is this: whether or not you see cleavage post-operation has more to do with your natural anatomy than with your plastic surgeon.

That's why enhancing your cleavage with breast augmentation can be tricky. One of the problems is, like when you get your haircut and you have a different idea of about a certain "look" than what your stylist is thinking, you might be envisioning breasts that look different from what your plastic surgeon has in mind.

This is why it's so important to be very clear in your communication. Once you're on the same page as to the type of "look" you want, it's also very important to discuss what can be achieved—realistically and safely.

What is cleavage anyway?

Isn't cleavage when the breasts touch? It seems very simple but there's actually more to it. Cleavage is actually defined by the International Federation of Associations of Anatomists (IFAA), as the space between the breasts. Dr. Kara will want to know HOW much or how little space you're hoping to have and WHERE that space is widest or smallest in order to get a better idea of what cleavage means to you.

Types of cleavage

Pictures can go a long way in ensuring that both you and Dr. Kara have the same idea in mind, but it also helps to have the words to describe what you'd like to see. There are many ways of describing cleavage and one simple way just describes where the fullness is when you're looking straight at the breasts when you're standing up – either Upper Fullness or Medial Fullness. "Upper fullness" refers to how full the upper part of the breast is and "medial fullness" refers to how full the part of your breasts is where an invisible line would run through to connect the two nipples.

Another way of describing the space between the breasts (or the "negative space" for you artist types) is to relate it to the shape of drinking glasses:

The "Champagne Glass" describes a space that looks similar to a champagne glass. It's a fairly narrow space between the breasts but the breasts do not touch at all throughout the full length of the breast. Although, it's likely that near the top, the space does round outward to create a slight "V" shape.

The "Cocktail Glass" describes a space that has a definite "V" shape, where the breasts touch, or nearly touch in the middle or towards the bottom of the breast before rounding away from each other at the top.

The "Hourglass" breasts have a defined "V" shape in both on the upper and lower parts of the space between the breasts, nearly touching in the middle.

The "High-ball" cleavage describes a significant space between the breasts that hardly curves out outward at all, staying mostly parallel from the top to the bottom of the breast.

The sad truth on why cleavage isn't for everyone

Once you've identified the look and are able to communicate it, your plastic surgeon can begin to evaluate whether the cleavage you want is actually realistic for your body type. As mentioned before, cleavage actually has more to do with anatomy than anything else.

The muscles under your breast, as well as the shape of your chest wall, will determine how much cleavage you will have post-surgery.

The chest muscles

It may seem that cleavage can be achieved by simply placing the breast implants closer together, but that's not the case. Doing so can cause problems, like the implants showing or causing a "ripple," having an unnaturally shpaed breast (possibly with the nipples on the side of the implants instead of centered on them), or heaven forbid—the uni-boob! Uni-boob is the layman's term for symmastia.

Also, when the implants are placed under the chest muscles, there is only so much wiggle room. This strictly limits how close the implants can be to one another. You can't disconnect or move the muscle itself or you risk complications with daily movement, like moving your arms for example.

The chest wall

The way your chest wall is formed also has a lot to do with how your cleavage appears post-surgery. There are three types of chest walls. These are determined by how inclined the curve of your rib cage is and where the position of the breastbone relative to the rib cage is. Here are a few common scenarios:

  1. Flat Chest with a Neutral Breastbone. The breastbone is relatively flat, neither extending inward or outward from the rib cage. This will typically give some cleavage because the nipples will face straight outward (or nearly so) and not to the sides.
  2. Prominent Chest Bone and Sloping Chest Wall. The chest bone extends slightly out and your rib cage curves around your lungs with a steeper incline (pectus carinatum). This results in naturally wide cleavage.
  3. Depressed Chest Bone. The breast bone here is slightly more depressed into the chest compared to the position of the rib cage, typically causing a narrower cleavage (pectus excavatum).

Cleavage or no cleavage — let's sum it up

The truth is, breast augmentation makes the breasts bigger. Simply enlarging the breasts does typically give you more chance of cleavage. Yet, it cannot change the anatomy lying under them that determines the space between the breasts.

While you should know what you're looking to have — and maybe the descriptions above can help you describe it in detail — listen to the advice Dr. Kara gives you on what can realistically and safely be expected for your anatomy.

Breast Implants Q&A

What breast implants sizes are there?

Sizes range from 150cc up to 800cc and over for huge breast implants. These sizes are available in both silicone and saline breast implants.

How do breast implants work?

Breast implants add volume to the breast, making them larger. They are inserted into the chest.

Are breast implants hard?

Just breast implants should not be hard, even A to D breast implants. They are designed to mimic natural breast tissue after cosmetic augmentation, whether theyr're small breast implants or 800cc breast implants. However, any hardening of the implants is caused by an overgrowth of scar tissue surrounding the implant. This complication is called capsular contracture and can cause the implant to feel hard, so they don't feel like natural boobs. Dr. Kara takes great care to reduce the risk of capsular contracture by applying advanced techniques during your cosmetic breast implant surgery.

How much are breast implants? Are breast implants expensive? What is the price of breast implants in Canada? What is the cost of breast implants?

Recently there has been concern and media exposure regarding BIA-ALCL as a complication related to breast implants. This is very rare and only occurs with textured surface implants, known as Biocell (a type of implant that Dr. Kara never uses).
