Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation surgery is one of the most frequently performed aesthetic procedures and is one of the first procedures that come to mind when plastic and aesthetic surgery is mentioned. Small breasts can only be small due to genetic (structural) reasons, as well as previously large breasts may also become smaller due to weight loss, hormonal imbalances, breastfeeding or changes in the breast during pregnancy.

When the human body is considered as a whole, the lack, scarcity or excessive size of any limb causes a physical disproportion. The aim of breast augmentation surgery is to provide the proper ratio of the breast with other parts of the body. For this reason, most of the patients who want to have this surgery describe the breast size they want to be proportional to their body. This usually corresponds to an average of 2 sizes of change in breast size.

Although small breasts can hide with clothes, the person always feels the lack of it, which causes serious psychological trauma, lack of self-confidence and isolates themselves from social life without realizing it over time.

One of the most frequently asked questions about breast augmentation is whether the breasts will enlarge with cream or medicine without surgery. Breast augmentation is definitely and clearly done by surgery. Apart from surgery, the breast does not grow with some creams or drugs circulating in the internet. Breast augmentation surgery is performed with prostheses. These prostheses are made of a material called silicone, which is compatible with the human body, which is not harmful to health. It is resistant to trauma and impacts and can only be damaged when exposed to trauma with a sharp object. The used silicone prostheses are guaranteed for life and do not need to be changed in 10-15 years. It is anatomical, and they are in drop and round forms. The drop form mimics the natural breast form; the upper part is flatter, the round form is preferred especially in patients who want a breast decollete.

Silicone prostheses are placed either under the chest muscle or under the breast tissue. Both plans have advantages and disadvantages. In very thin patients, submuscular is preferred to reduce the visibility of the prosthesis from the outside, that is, to camouflage it, but this plan is likely to cause pain after the surgery and there will be restriction in arm movements. When the under-breast plan is used, the postoperative comfort is at the highest level, it means a painless operation and there is no restriction on your arm movements. Return to daily life is very short.

There are several incision sites used for the placement of the prosthesis in breast augmentation surgeries. One of them is the nipple, the scars of the incisions made here are not obvious, but since the ducts are opened on the nipple, it is considered dirty and contact with the prosthesis is not desired during the surgery. Another disadvantage is that the breast tissue is slightly traumatized. For these reasons, it is not preferred. Another area is the armpit. The aim of the surgeries performed here is to hide the scar by hiding it in the armpit fold. However, it is considered dirty because it is rich in armpit sweat glands and hair follicles, and contact with the prosthesis is not desired, so it is rarely used. The most commonly used and safest place is the incisions made from the breast fold. The scar is hidden in the breast fold, in about 1-2 years it fades not visible from the outside and remains completely in a bra or bikini.

Breast augmentation surgery is an operation performed under general anesthesia in a hospital setting. The operation takes an average of 1 hour and you stay in the hospital for 1 night after the operation. Breast augmentation surgery is an operation that guarantees 100% satisfaction from the results of the patients.
