The breast is an important part of female body. While its main function is described as breastfeeding a baby and symbolizing femininity, it is also a measure of beauty and complementary to the female physique. For this reason, women whose breasts are not big enough may not find themselves beautiful or feel incomplete and insecure. In such cases, breast enlargement methods can be the solution and they can have an ideal breast appearance with breast augmentation. Ideal breast size for women; It should be determined by the joint decision of the specialist and the patient according to the factors such as height, weight, shoulder width of the person, namely the body structure of the woman.
What is Breast Augmentation and For Whom Is It Suitable for?
Loss of volume in the breast may occur later or congenitally due to weight loss, post-pregnancy problems. Over time, in addition to all these, the breast form may change and sagging may occur with aging. Breast augmentation can be performed to solve all these possible problems. It is a surgical procedure performed to increase the size, shape and fullness of a woman’s breast, and it is also one of the most common aesthetic operations in the world. Those who are not satisfied with their breast size, those who have fullness and loss of form in their breasts, those who have asymmetrical disorders in their breasts, those who have self-confidence problems due to the size of their breasts or who have lost their breasts due to different diseases can have breast aesthetics.
How is Breast Augmentation Surgery Performed?
Before the operation, preferences regarding size, feel and appearance are discussed with the surgeon. In breast augmentation, silicone implants or fat tissue that are present in your body can be used. These breast implants used for breast augmentation have different qualities in terms of shape, content and surface structure. We can briefly classify them as follows:
- In terms of Shape: Drop and Round Implant
While the horizontal and vertical diameters of round prostheses are equal, the vertical diameters of drop prostheses are slightly longer than the horizontal diameter.
- In terms of Content: Silicone and Saline Implant
Implants with silicone fillers in the silicone sheath are called silicone implants, and those filled with physiological saline are called saline implants. Saline implants are placed empty and then filled with sterile saline, while silicone implants are pre-filled with silicone gel.
- In terms of Surface Structure: Pebbled and Flat Implant
There is less capsule formation around the implants with rough surfaces than those with flat surfaces. Your surgeon will provide you with flat, rough, round, or teardrop-shaped silicone implants and the surgical techniques that are suitable for you, depending on your breast structure. After you decide with your doctor about the implant types that are most suitable for you among all the options, you can start the operation. Your surgeon will make an incision in your chest to place an implant in the operation, and after the incision is made, place your implant and center it behind the nipple. After the implant is placed, your surgeon will close the incision with stitches and everything will take approximately 1-1.5 hours.
How Is Breast Augmentation Performed With Fat Injection?
In addition to silicone surgery, it is possible to enlarge breasts with fat injection. In this application, unlike implant surgery, the person’s own body fat is used instead of silicone implant. Fat tissue is extracted from any part of the body with regional fatty tissue and combined with stem cells and injected into the breast area. You can choose this method if you want to get rid of the problem of regional fat deposition and give your breast the form you want.
How is the Healing Process After Silicone Surgery?
You can be discharged the next day after breast augmentation using silicone. It will be good to spend the first 4 days resting. You won’t experience much pain, but you may not get used to the feeling of fullness for a few days. Temporary bruising and pain after the first week may be observed. However, pain can be easily controlled with painkillers prescribed by your physician. Continuing your non-heavy daily activities will reduce the discomfort and possible pain you experience. There may be edema in your breasts in the first 3 days, but it will begin to return to normal after the 4th day.
What Should Be Considered After Breast Augmentation Surgery?
For the first 3 weeks after breast augmentation, you should avoid movements that require heavy use of your arms or increase your heart rate. In the first 6-8 weeks, you should stay away from activities such as sauna, solarium, pool and steam bath and wear a sports bra for a while to support your breast implants. If you notice warmth, redness or fever in your chest, you should consult your surgeon as soon as possible.
After breast augmentation, your pregnancy and breastfeeding process will not be affected negatively and you will not have any problems with this issue. Silicone implants do not harm your milk glands. In addition, it is not possible for your implants to burst or be damaged unless you encounter an extreme situation such as a traffic accident or after breast augmentation.
