Overview of different facelift procedures

Breast augmentations are done to enhance the patient’s breast volume. There are multiple approaches and there are multiple types and shapes of implants that can be used. The average operative time is an hour and a half. Time to recovery is approximately one week, and time until exercise activity is approximately two to three weeks. All patients are treated individually and may require alterations in the breast skin envelope at the same time as the breast augmentation.Breast augmentation is one of the most common cosmetic surgical procedures. Breast augmentation surgery (augmentation mammoplasty) refers to the process of reshaping or recontouring of the breasts. In this surgery, an implant is used to enhance the shape, firmness, and size of the breasts. There are several sizes and styles of breast implants available on the market, and the technique used for surgery will vary amongst patients. Every patient is different, and Dr. Van Laeken will make an individual recommendation as the type of implant and the method of placement. You will have an opportunity to see the different implants during your consultation with Dr. Van Laeken. You can also view Dr. Van Laeken’s gallery of before and after photos.

Before Surgery


It is very important that Dr. Arash Izadpanah is aware of the state of your general health prior to surgery. Please let her know of any allergies you have, medications, herbal supplements, or vitamins you are taking as well as the reasons for taking them. It is also important that you inform Dr. Van Laeken if you have a tendency for keloid scarring (thick, wide, or raised scars).If you are a smoker, we encourage you to abstain from smoking before your surgery for at least 14 days. Smoking can interfere with the blood flow to the skin, and will inhibit the healing of the incisions.Depending on your age as well as your general health, pre-operative testing such as a blood test, an ECG, or a mammogram may be required (for breast procedures).It is important that you avoid taking vitamin E, anti-inflammatories or aspirin products for 2 weeks prior to surgery. These products are anti coagulants, and could lead to hematoma formation and bleeding during the surgery.

Procedure day

What to expect

Dr. Arash Izadpanah operates at several different hospitals, but generally performs breast augmentation surgeries at False Creek Surgical Centre or Cambie Surgery Centre. These are both state of the art, fully accredited private surgical facilities.Most patients who have sedentary jobs plan to take 1 week off work. If your job involves a great deal of physical activity Dr. Van Laeken can advise you as to how much time you should take off.The operation is usually performed as a day care procedure under general anaesthesia and typically takes 1.5 hours.A small incision is made either around the edge of the areola (peri-areolar), or in the crease under the breast (infra-mammary). Through this incision an implant filled with a saline solution or silicone gel is inserted into a pocket created behind the breast. Both silicone and saline implants have an outer shell made of silicone material. This pocket can be created in two places: directly under your breast tissue (sub-mammary placement), or underneath the pectoral muscle (sub-pectoral placement).Dr. Van Laeken will close the incision and place a bandage dressing on you. This dressing will be in place for one week.Please note: Costs vary according to type of breast implant used.

At 4 weeks post op you may begin to wear an under wire bra.Most patients usually return to work 7 to 14 days after surgery depending on the kind of work they do. If your work involves heavy lifting, pushing, or pulling you may be required to be off work longer.
