Breast Augmentation

Today, thanks to technological advancements in the field of cosmetic surgery, breast augmentation surgery offers an effective solution for women to feel better about themselves and boost their confidence. This surgery aims to regulate the shape and size of the breasts to meet the expectations of the patients. Augmentation is achieved by placing natural materials called implants or prostheses made of silicone beneath the breast tissue. Breast implants can be placed under the chest muscle (Sub-pectoral), on top of the chest muscle (sub-glandular), under the breast muscle fascia (subfascial), or in a dual plane. The dual-plane technique involves placing the implant behind the chest muscle and the breast tissue behind the lower pole of the breast. Due to the release of the lower attachments of the pectoral muscle, the implant does not move with muscle movements, and the double breast base (Double bubble) appearance does not occur. Due to these advantages, it is the most preferred breast augmentation technique.

Preparation Before Surgery

Before deciding on breast implant surgery, it is essential to have a comprehensive initial consultation with an expert plastic surgeon. What to do before surgery:

1. Initial Consultation with the Specialist:

Have a detailed discussion with your plastic surgeon to clarify your expectations and post-operative goals. Your surgeon will conduct physical examinations to determine the most suitable type of implant for you.

2. Implant Selection:

The most critical factors in size selection are the patient’s chest circumference, the amount of existing breast tissue, and the patient’s desires. The base diameter of the implant should be compatible with the patient’s chest circumference.

The most critical parameters in selecting the implant shape are the patient’s existing amount of breast tissue, fat percentage, and desires. For patients with thin breast tissue thickness of less than 2.5 cm, teardrop implants are preferred, resulting in more natural outcomes. Round implants are preferred for patients desiring more fullness in the upper pole of the breast.

The ‘profile height’ in breast implants indicates the forward projection of an implant from a certain base to the chest wall. The most important factor in profile selection is patient preferences. Profile types include:

3. Preoperative Tests:

Completing all tests recommended by your surgeon is essential. Tests such as blood tests, breast ultrasound, and mammography are necessary for the safe and successful conduct of the surgery.

Post-Surgery Process

After breast implant surgery, proper care and follow-up are essential:


Things to Consider in the Early Days

Since the chest muscle is connected to the arm, it moves along with arm movements. Therefore, arm movements should be restricted after surgery. Stretching movements upwards should not be performed, and heavy lifting should be avoided. Patients should lie in a semi-upright position on their backs.

Stitch and Bandage Care

Your stitches and bandages should be regularly checked as determined by your surgeon.

Scar Care

Post-operative scars are normal. Minimizing your scars with creams and care methods recommended by your surgeon is possible.

Breastfeeding After Breast Augmentation

Since breast augmentation surgery is performed from plans under the milk glands, it does not have any effect on breastfeeding.

Risks and Complications

Like any surgical intervention, breast implant surgery also carries some risks. Possible risks include infection, implant leakage, and sensory loss. However, this surgery, performed by expert surgeons, is generally safe and successful.

Who Is Suitable?

Candidates considering breast implant surgery generally have the following characteristics:

However, every patient is different, and an individual evaluation is necessary to determine the most appropriate treatment plan.
