What is breast augmentation and who is suitable for the surgery?

Breast augmentation surgery is performed to improve the appearance of the breast in cases such as small or different volumes of breast sizes in women or deformation of the breast tissue after pregnancy and breastfeeding. Apart from these, it is also possible to reconstruct the breast in women whose breast tissue has been removed for breast cancer treatment.

Although round-shaped breast prostheses are used in breast augmentation surgeries, recently, teardrop-shaped prostheses have been used due to their more natural appearance. Since the breast implants are placed under the muscle tissue, it is not an obstacle for breastfeeding after breast augmentation. Likewise, the surgery poses no obstacle for mammography for any reason.

Frequently Asked Questions

Breast augmentation is the most preferred surgery all over the world. For many women, the volume and shape of their breasts can cause unhappiness and loss of confidence. In such a case, you can safely consider breast augmentation surgery.

The breast prosthesis made in accordance with the anatomy of the person will not be noticeable from the outside. When deciding on the size of breast prostheses, it will be correct to take your surgeon’s experience and guidance into account.

Technically, breast prostheses do not cause cancer.  Also, you will not have any problems with mammography at later ages after having breast prosthesis surgery,

Silicone prostheses used in breast augmentation surgery are placed under the breast muscle. The prostheses have no contact with the milk ducts in the breast and there is no obstacle to giving birth and breastfeeding after breast prosthesis surgery.

As some of the breast tissue will be removed in breast reduction surgery, there is a possibility that the milk ducts will decrease. Therefore, breast reduction and breast lift surgeries are recommended after giving birth, if you are planning to have a child.

The quality of the prosthesis is essential in breast augmentation surgery. When the right choice is made, we see that the prostheses placed 20 years ago are still used without any problems. In this sense, we can say that new generation prostheses can be used longer without any expiration date.

We can generally evaluate the breast prostheses used in breast augmentation surgeries in terms of material, shape, and size. Breast prostheses can be made of two materials, sallin and silicone. Silicone prostheses are preferred all over the world as they provide a safe and natural feeling.

Apart from that, there are two types of breast prostheses, round and teardrop. Here, you will be guided by the shape of your breast and the experience of the surgeon who will perform the surgery.

Finally, it is also important to determine the size of the chosen prosthesis. In this regard, the appropriate prosthesis volume will be determined with the experience of your surgeon in line with your expectations. As a result, your surgeon will choose the volume that will be most natural for you.

You will not have any loss of sensation after the operation.

Sometimes, even if we have planned to enlarge the breasts with a prosthesis, breast augmentation surgery can be combined with breast lift surgery in cases where it will appear sagging. Your doctor will share his/her opinion with you when planning breast augmentation surgery.

The age of breast augmentation surgery is 18 when the breast tissue also completes its development.

We would like to say that this surgery can be performed not only because you have a small breast, but also because the sizes of the two breast structures are different or asymmetrical.
