Breast Augmentation
Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation is an operation to increase the volume of the breast and change its shape. Shape change can be achieved with breast prostheses and/or fat injection, various synthetic material injections! and tissue shifting methods. Today, the most common breast augmentation procedure is performed with prostheses all over the world.
Breast augmentation surgeries are performed under general anesthesia and are an operation that takes approximately 1-2 hours.

How many types of breast prosthesis are in the market? (anatomical?/round? or another model?)

 Breast prostheses are very diverse. There are prostheses in very different shapes and contents according to their surface, shape, filling, base and height, and the material inside. Generally rough and flat surface according to the surface structure; according to their shape anatomically, that is, flattened upper part, rounder lower part, and round-shaped prostheses; full and not full according to their filling; short-medium-long according to their length in anatomical prostheses; There are prostheses with very different features such as flat, medium, high and very high according to their height, different base diameters depending on the brand, gel or serum in them. The important thing here is to have surgery with the right physician who will decide together with you and apply the ideal prosthesis selection according to your needs.

Where should my prosthesis be placed?
To over or under the muscle? Breast prostheses can be placed under or over the pectoral muscle. In submuscular placements, semi-submuscular (dual plane) can be placed according to the indication. In supramuscular placements, it can be placed under the muscle membrane or on the muscle membrane (under the breast tissue) in two different planes. For example, submuscular placement should not be done in a professional athlete. The reason for this is the possibility of displacement of the prosthesis with muscle movements. Another example is the placement on the muscle is suitable for a patient who wants a decrease in visibility. However, when the upper skin of the breast is thin, when the prosthesis is placed on the muscle, all the contours of the prosthesis will be evident, so it is necessary to place the prosthesis under the muscle. For all these and similar reasons, it is necessary to examine the patient well and then choose a prosthesis together.

In breast augmentation surgery, where are the prostheses placed through an incision?

Breast prostheses can be placed via an incision from around the nipple, under the breast, under the armpit, and around the navel (only for prostheses with serum). In this case, the method to be chosen must be evaluated and decided by the patient and the physician.
All of them have their own advantages and disadvantages. For example, while the risk of decreased sensation is high in the incision made around the nipple, it is less in the incision under the breast. Or in the armpit incision, while the scar is not seen on the breast, the possibility of infection is high.
It is essential that all these options are planned according to the patient and decided together with the physician.

There will be traces in the form of lines about 4-5 cm long in the incision areas that we mentioned before, namely under the breast, around the nipple, under the armpit or in the belly area. However, in about 1 year, there will be a significant decrease in the scars and they will become indistinct.
Thanks to the radiological imaging methods applied today, it can be said that the presence of the prosthesis has no effect on cancer screening.
Although there are problems especially in prostheses placed under the mammary gland, this problem also disappears with radiological examinations performed in the right plan.
Yes. While the breast is enlarged, the remaining tissues are shaped and the breast is lifted. However, there may be extra scars during lifting.
In patients with breast asymmetry, we reduce asymmetries while enlarging the breasts with prostheses of different sizes and structures and applications in different plans.
Some patients stay away from prosthesis for breast augmentation. We provide breast fullness to these patients with the fat we take from them. The main advantage of this procedure is to obtain a natural breast form, and the disadvantage is that a high volume of fat injection cannot be achieved at once. Therefore, multiple sessions may be required. Can breasts be enlarged with synthetic fillers?

Hybrid breast augmentation is the process of infiltrating fatty tissue around the prosthesis to soften the corners of the prosthesis and add extra volume to the breast after the prosthesis is placed.
Breast augmentation surgery can be performed from the age of twenty.
At the end of the surgery, although rare, thin drains can be placed in both breasts to prevent blood collection (hematoma) that may occur. The drains are removed the next day. A pulling sensation may be felt during drain removal. However, since very small size drains are used, there is no pain.
After such surgery, the complaints of pain are less and the pain caused by drug treatment is relieved. Patients are discharged on the day of surgery or the next morning, they can do their daily personal affairs after discharge, they can take a shower 2 days later, and they can return to work after about 4-5 days. Our patients can start sports activities after about 1 month.

Slow Return to Physical Activities: You should not start heavy physical activities without your doctor's approval. It is better to start exercises slowly and in a controlled manner in the postoperative period.
Psychological Support: It is important to be emotionally supported in the post-operative period. It may take time to feel comfortable and satisfied with the results. It may be useful to talk to your relatives or get counseling support during this process.
If you have any problems or concerns during the post-operative period, it is important to contact your doctor immediately. Properly monitoring the healing process can help prevent unwanted complications and enable you to achieve more successful results.
