What Type Of Breast Augmentation Is Right For You?
Here are the key differences between your augmentation options:
- Augmentation With Implants
Implants are a great choice if you want a significant increase in breast size (1 to 4 cups).
- Augmentation Without Implants
Natural Fat Transfer is a great option if you do not want implants and you’re interested in a more subtle change in breast size (1 to 1.5 cups).
Natural Fat transfer is growing in popularity because of the added benefit of Body Contouring. Liposuction is performed to collect fat from other areas of your body, such as your tummy, lovehandles, and thighs so you are getting two cosmetic surgeries (body contouring and breast augmentation) in one operation. For Natural Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation, it’s important to note that some of your fat can be reabsorbed by the body, so you may lose some volume over time. If this occurs, you may need a secondary treatment.
Which Method Is The Most Popular Choice?
Augmentation with implants is currently the most popular choice at Dr. Avi Islur’s cosmetic surgery practice.
The top two reasons why most patients choose augmentation with implants:
- Implants offer the ability to significantly increase the size of your breasts
- Implants offer a set volume change that will not decrease overtime
Now that you have a basic understanding of the two different types of augmentation that Dr. Avi Islur offers, let’s get into more specific details for each type of surgery.

01 Breast Implant Surgery
Augmentation with implants balances the shape and feel of your breasts. The size of your breasts can be increased anywhere from 1 to 5 cup sizes with implants. Dr. Avi Islur works with the new generation of round, smooth, silicone gel-filled implants, and structured saline-filled implants created by the worldwide leaders in breast aesthetics. The highest quality implants with unmatched strength and durability.
I) Silicone Gel Filled Breast Implants
Silicone gel-filled implants are for use in both cosmetic and reconstructive breast surgery. Silicone gel-filled implants are specially designed with a form stable cohesive gel that will not leak, deflate or change shape. Silicone is very safe and is the benchmark used for biological compatibility within the human body.
II) Saline Filled Breast Implants
Dr. Avi Islur also offers a new generation of round saline-filled implants called The Ideal Implant.
The Ideal Implant offers a unique, innovative internal structure designed to control movement of the saline filler that supports the upper pole of the breast for beautiful, natural looking results.

Implant Incision & Position
Breast implants are inserted through an inframammary (breast crease) incision or a peri-areolar (nipple) incision. Incisions are kept quite small as Dr. Avi Islur uses a Keller Funnel in all breast surgery procedures. The Keller Funnel technique decreases the size of your incision line by 40 to 60%.
The position of your implant is an important factor in achieving natural looking breasts. Implants can be placed above or partially below your chest muscle. The placement of your implants will depend on the amount of breast tissue you have prior to surgery.
Surgical incision, position and type of implant will be based on your individual characteristics and measurements. This will be discussed at your initial consultation with Dr. Avi Islur.
Length of Surgery
Breast augmentation is performed under general anesthesia in about 1 to 2 hours.
- Plan to take about 5 to 7 days off work for recovery time.
- Every patient heals at her own pace. You may be able to return to work much earlier than others, however, it’s a good idea to have a few extra days booked off work for recovery time.
- The length of time to book off work depends on the type of augmentation you are having and whether your job is physically demanding. Dr. Avi Islur will give you a specific recovery guide at the time of your initial consultation.
- Doctor notes are available and are very confidential. Your doctors note will not indicate the type of surgery you are having.
- Restrict strenuous aerobic activities, exercise and heavy lifting for 2 weeks following surgery. Avoid physical activities that will increase your heart rate and blood pressure or cause your breasts to move significantly.
- Do not massage your breasts for at least 1 full month after your surgery. Dr. Avi Islur will give you specific post operative care instructions.
- Your surgery and recovery will be custom tailored to your unique needs, individual surgical results and recovery instructions may vary.
- If you are an out of town patient and have your breast augmentation in Winnipeg, you will have specific follow up instructions provided to you at the time of your consultation.

How Do I Prepare For My Initial Consultation?
- Bring photos that demonstrate your augmentation goals so Dr. Avi Islur can get a clear visual of the look you’re going for.
- Bring a padded bra that reflects your augmentation goals. During your consultation, you will be able to see, touch, feel, and try implants on. This allows you to compare size, shape, and projection between your implant options and your favorite padded bra.
- Bring a tight fitting t-shirt or tank-top with you. Seeing yourself with a shirt on makes it easier to determine the changes you’d like to see.
How Much Do Breast Implants Cost?
The surgeon you decide to work with is the #1 determining factor on the results you’re going to achieve.
Plastic Surgeons price their procedures according to the quality care and surgical skills they bring to their patients. Seeking out a surgeon based on price often leads to undesirable results, and the problems that come along with it are often complex (and costly) to fix. Ask anyone who has undergone revision surgery, it’s a lot less expensive to get it done right, the first time.
Breast Implant surgery starts at $8,500. The exact cost of your breast augmentation surgery depends on the extent of your surgery. For example, are you getting a breast lift with your augmentation? Are you getting an Internal Bra? Everyone’s surgery is personalized according to their desired aesthetic results and unique surgical requirements.
An exact quote will be provided after your consultation with Dr. Avi Islur. Quotes are valid for 6 months from the date they are printed.

02 Natural Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation (Without Implants)
Augmentation by Natural Fat Transfer is an implant-free surgical technique that can boost your breast size by 1 to 1.5 cups. This procedure is growing in popularity as it eliminates the need for implants altogether. Dr. Avi Islur will use fat collected from other areas of your body to build natural looking, larger, fuller breasts. Incisions or scarring is minimal (if any at all) and you can expect a quick recovery.
Liposuction & Fat Transfer
Fat transfer surgery is gaining popularity because patients get two cosmetic procedures done in one surgery.
Liposuction is performed to remove and collect fat from other parts of your body such as your hips, thighs, and tummy therefore you will benefit from liposuction in the areas that you need it.
The fat is processed, then injected into your breasts for a custom increase in size, shape and volume.
New Breasts Customized To Your Contour
This advanced implant-free surgical technique results in custom made breasts that are the perfect size, shape and volume for your contour. This procedure is perfect for balancing breast size. Incision lines are generally minimal with this procedure, fat transfer is a very minimally invasive procedure. Natural fat transfer surgery is performed under local anesthesia in about 2 to 3 hours.
Fat Transfer & Breast Implant Combination Surgery
Your all natural fat transfer procedure can be performed in combination with breast implant surgery. Patients with thin skin may use fat transfer to perfectly smooth out and soften the gap between the implant and their chest. If you are interested in both breast implants and natural fat transfer surgery, feel free to bring this up during your initial consultation with Dr. Avi Islur.
Proper Candidates For Fat Transfer
If you’re looking to enlarge the size of your breasts significantly — more than 2 cup sizes — and you want more fullness in the upper portion of your breast, there’s a good chance that Dr. Avi Islur will recommend breast implant surgery. On the other hand, if you’re looking to boost your bust line by 1 to 1.5 cups and do not need a dramatic lift, a natural fat transfer can be an excellent augmentation technique.
Ideal weight for fat transfer surgery means that you have enough fat preferably in the lower abdomen or inner thighs in order to allow enough fat to be harvested. We can still get excellent results on slender women, however if you have extra fat in specific areas, this procedure will have double benefits. Get rid of your unwanted excess fat, and boost the size of your breasts.
You might experience 15% to 20% loss of volume over time due to reabsorption. Reabsorption happens when the fat injected does not receive enough blood supply. If you loose volume it’s important to understand that you may require a secondary treatment.
What If I Want To Go Larger After my First Fat Transfer, Is That Possible?
Yes, you can achieve larger breasts by multiple fat transfer treatments. You can book another fat transfer session with Dr. Islur a couple of months after your first visit.
Does Fat Transfer Put Me At Risk For Capsular Contracture?
No, the good news is you cannot get capsular contracture from fat transfer. And there’s no need for implant replacement surgery.
Will My Fat Transfer Cause Problems With Future Mammograms?
There has been a lot of research done on this subject over the past few years because this was a major concern. It was thought that a radiologist may have a hard time seeing tumors because of the fat transfer. Fortunately, imaging technology has dramatically improved over the years, a trained radiologist can differentiate between a tumor and a scar.
Can a Family Member or Friend be a Fat Donor for Me If I Don’t Have Enough of My Own Fat?
Yes, but there’s somewhat of a catch. If you don’t have enough fat reserves (this is rare), your donor would have to be an identical twin.
If I Want To Remove My Breast Implants Can I Replace the Lost Volume with a Fat Transfer?
Yes, Dr. Avi Islur can remove your implants completely and replace some of the lost volume with your own fat. Depending on your ideal breast size, you can also replace your old implants with new ones, then add a fat transfer to enhance the appearance.
If you don’t want to use implants at all, and want to go with a fat transfer instead, the size of your breasts will be smaller than your implanted breasts were. Your breasts can still end up much larger than your original breast size.
Advanced Specialized Training
It’s important to see a surgeon who has special training and experience in fat transfer for breast surgery. Dr. Avi Islur is one of the first plastic surgeons in Winnipeg, MB who trained with Dr. Roger Khouri at the prestigious Miami Breast Center. Dr Khouri is the founder and world-renowned pioneer of fat transfer to the breast for augmentation and reconstructive microsurgery.
Learning about your options is key, but keep in mind that breast augmentation is not a one size fits all kind of surgery. There are a lot of custom considerations that come in to play. Your existing measurements and aesthetic goals will help Dr. Avi Islur decide which surgical technique best suits your body’s needs.
Recovery Time After Your Fat Transfer
You may experience a very quick recovery after your fat transfer surgery. Recovery time is within 2 to 4 days following your surgery. Please note that your surgery and recovery will be custom tailored to your unique needs, individual results and recovery instructions may vary.
How Much Does Fat Transfer Surgery Cost?
Fat transfer surgery costs more than implants due to the extra surgical time required to complete the surgery. You can expect the cost to start at $8900. Your surgery will be custom tailored according to your unique surgical requirements, Dr. Avi Islur has to see you in consultation for an exact quote. Feel free to call one of Dr. Islur’s Patient Coordinators at (204) 813-0305 for estimates and financing information.
Should I Get Breast Implants or Fat Transfer Surgery?
Breast implants is the best option if you’re interested in boosting the size of your breasts more than 2 cup sizes. If you’d prefer to use your own natural fat, from other areas of your body, and would like to boost your breast size by 2 cup sizes or less, fat transfer surgery is an option for you.
