What is Breast Augmentation Surgery?
Breast augmentation surgery is an operation performed to obtain proportional body sizes by enlarging the breasts in a smaller volume than desired using implants or fat injection.
Who Can Have Breast Augmentation Surgery?
There are two main indications for augmentation surgery. The first of these is women whose breast size is not exactly at the level they want. The second is patients whose breast tissue has emptied after giving birth and who have not received tissue support, especially in the upper parts of the breast. It is necessary to approach the patient group differently. In the first group of patients, the aim is basically to enlarge the breast tissue only with the help of a prosthesis. In the second group, prosthesis alone may not be sufficient and recovery surgery with incisions can also be performed.
Why is Breast Aesthetics Preferred?
When it comes to female beauty, one of the first things that come to mind is breasts. People with asymmetrical breasts, small breasts or breast deformities may prefer to undergo some interventions to feel better.
Which Areas Do Breast Surgeries Leave Scars?
In patients where enlargement with a prosthesis alone is sufficient, a breast prosthesis can be placed in the lower part of the breast with the help of scars between 3-4 cm. However, in patients who need tightening, incisions may occur around the nipple and even from the head to the lower part of the breast. Every physician will want to perform breast surgeries with as few incisions as possible. However, in cases where the breast tissue is very abundant, avoiding scars often results in revision surgeries. In this case, the balance of profit and loss should be discussed between the patient and the physician, and the outcome that will be best for the patient should be implemented by a common decision.
Will My Breast Always Stay Upright After the Surgery?
This question may be answered differently in different patient groups. In patients whose breast tissue is very small and who have not given birth before or who have deformed breasts despite having given birth, the breast tissue can often maintain its erectness for a long time after a prosthesis is placed. In addition, in patients whose breast tissue has changed due to previous birth or excessive weight gain and loss, even if the skin sheath is tightened after surgery, sagging may occur again over time, and in one third of these patients, the breast skin may need to be tightened again under local anesthesia.
Is Over- or Under-Muscle Plane Better for Breast Enlargement Surgery?
In breast prostheses, either above or below the muscle placement is not superior to the other in every respect. With prostheses placed above the muscle, post-operative pain is less and the movement of the muscle does not cause any discomfort in patients who do active sports. In addition, in patients with thin skin tissue, prostheses placed over the muscle may become palpable over time or cause ripples on the skin. In these cases, the prosthesis may need to be moved under the muscle with a second surgery or supported by extra fat injections. With prostheses placed under the muscle, long-term problems such as the prosthesis becoming palpable or rippling on the skin are less common. In addition, postoperative pain is more common with under-muscle prostheses, and patients who do active sports can feel the presence of the prosthesis under the muscle for a long time, and the prosthesis moves with the muscle as they use their muscles. There is no difference between the two plans in terms of the naturalness of the image. The main rule in choosing the right plan is the patient's skin thickness. In patients whose breast skin thickness is over 2 centimeters on the upper part of the breast, the supramuscular plan is generally preferred, while in cases where it is less, submuscular plans are preferred. The best plan for you is the one that best suits your body structure.
Can I Have Breast Prosthesis of My Desired Size?
The answer to this question is no. Everyone has a size range that their body will allow. Trying to make a breast larger than it should be often increases complications and can lead to cracked breast skin. For this reason, it would be best not to insist on a large prosthesis to your doctor and to trust his recommendations.
I'm Afraid of Anesthesia, Should I Be Afraid?
General anesthesia is quite safe with current medical knowledge. When some tests recommended by our anesthesiologists are performed on our patients, it becomes easier to detect existing risks and the probability of the process going more smoothly increases. In addition, although it is very rare, the human body may react negatively during anesthesia. In these cases, the importance of performing and having surgery in a fully equipped hospital becomes evident. Equipped hospitals make it easier for us to overcome problems with their experienced physician staff. The night before the surgery, all our patients should not eat or drink anything after 12 at night. This is the most important element for anesthesia to be performed safely. In the meeting held the day before, patients will be told what time they need to be in surgery and hospital. Being in the hospital at this time is very important for the healthy operation of the surgery process.
How Long Does Breast Augmentation Surgery Take?
Breast augmentation surgery takes an average of one hour in cases where only a prosthesis is placed, and 2 hours in patients who have a lift with a prosthesis. Apart from the one or two hours of surgery time, there are other factors that should be understood by the waiting relatives of our patient. First of all, our patients are not taken into surgery as soon as they enter the operating room. Our patients are called to the operating room half an hour before the surgery begins and they are taken to rest in the waiting room. Considering that our patients waited for half an hour in the recovery room at the end of the surgery, when the transportation times are added, the total time should be considered as 1.5 hours in addition to the surgery time for the patient's relatives.
What Happens to Bra Measurement After Breast Augmentation Surgery?
After breast augmentation surgery, your back measurement and your cup size will increase one size each. In other words, a woman who wears a size 80 A will often reach a full size 85 B after breast augmentation surgery.
Do Breast Prostheses Cause Cancer?
There is no evidence that breast prostheses increase the risk of classically known breast cancer. FDA, an American health institution, has decided that the use of breast prostheses is safe after long research. The breast prosthesis does not come into direct contact with the breast tissue. In addition, shortly after the prostheses are placed, the body isolates the prostheses by creating a capsule around them. In addition, although it is very rare today, an average of one in 30,000 women has a disease called ALCL, which manifests itself with swelling in the breast tissue in the late stages. In this case, the prosthesis in the breast is removed and sent for pathological examination. In 95 to 97 percent of these patients, simply removing the capsule is sufficient treatment and no additional treatment is required. In addition, additional treatments may be required in 3-5 percent of patients. In these cases, current medical treatment methods can be applied. Detailed information on the subject can be viewed on the page of the Turkish Plastic Surgery Association.
Do Breast Prostheses Prevent Mammography?
No, you can have a mammogram with your breast prostheses. While breast prostheses will not prevent cancer cases, they help detect cancer earlier as it increases the chance of detecting masses.
Why Do Breasts Sag?
The breast, which consists mainly of skin, fatty tissue and mammary gland, is fixed to the ribcage by the resistance of the skin and hanging ligaments. If the sagging ligaments are loose and skin tension is low, sagging may occur regardless of breast size. Even small-sized breasts may sag due to loosening of the skin and hanging ligaments due to birth and breastfeeding. At the same time, a breast with a strong skin structure and ligaments may not sag even though it is large. As a result, the characteristics and structure of each breast are different.
How to Determine the Correct Breast Shape and Size?
This may vary depending on the age of the person who will bear the breasts, the breast, hip, spine and body structure, the condition of the skin and breasts, and the patient's expectations. The surgeon and the patient should evaluate the ideal breast size and shape together.
How to Increase Breast Size?
Today, breast augmentation is accomplished in two different ways, using breast implants or fat transfer to increase the size of your breasts.
What are the differences between round prostheses and anatomical prostheses? Which one is more suitable for me?
Round dentures are circular in shape and their peaks are located in the middle. In anatomical prostheses, the prosthesis supports the lower half of the breast more, while the upper part of the breast is supported less. In patients with very little breast tissue, anatomical breast prostheses are a very suitable choice if the patient wants a natural result. In addition, in cases where fullness is desired in the upper part of the breast, that is, in the décolletage area, anatomical prostheses cannot adequately support the upper part of the breast, creating a v-shaped fork appearance in the décolleté area. It would be more appropriate for patients who desire this appearance to choose round dentures. For patients whose breasts have loosened due to weight loss or birth, the correct prosthesis selection should be round prostheses, especially since these patients need support in the upper part of the breast.
Is Breast Enlargement a Painful Procedure?
You may have mild pain that can be easily controlled with simple painkillers. If the implant is placed under your muscle, you may feel slight pain when you move your arms.
What are the Risks of Breast Augmentation Surgery?
The most common problem in the early period is the formation of hematoma due to bleeding in the surgery area. In this case, if the amount of hematoma gradually increases, you may need to undergo surgery again. Another and very rare early risk is infection, in which case the prosthesis may have to be removed. In the late period, the most common problems are the prosthesis being palpable, causing small ripples on the skin (rippling), and capsular contracture due to excessive thickening of the naturally occurring capsule around the prosthesis, and these are always treated separately.
Anesthesia Type
General anesthesia is generally preferred in breast augmentation surgery.
Things to Consider Before Surgery
You must stop taking all nutritional supplements, such as blood thinners, vitamins and herbal teas, one week before the surgery. You should consult your doctor about the prescription drugs you use regularly. Your surgery is planned to be performed at a time other than your menstrual period because hormonal changes during the menstrual period may affect the breast structure. You should have a breast ultrasound or mammogram before surgery. You should buy front-opening clothes that you can easily wear without lifting your arms.

Healing Process
There may be slight swelling, loss of sensation and slight bruising in the nipple, but all of these will resolve on their own in a short time. It is not necessary to remove dissolvable stitches. After the 3rd day, the bandages are removed and the patient can continue his normal activities and work. After 7 days, you can swim in the sea or pool for a short time. You can also start taking light walks from day 10. You can start sports activities such as swimming, tennis and fitness from 3 to 4 months.
Breast Augmentation Surgery Cost
The price varies depending on factors such as the intervention plan, the type of implant to be selected and the type of anesthesia to be applied.

Can I Breastfeed After Breast Augmentation Surgery?
In patients with breast prostheses, the prostheses are not in direct contact with the breast tissue and, in terms of health, breast prostheses do not prevent breastfeeding. Implants do not affect the amount, content or flow of breast milk.
How Long Should I Wear a Corset or Surgical Bra After Breast Surgery?
It is best to wear the bra given to you at surgery for 3 weeks after breast surgery. At the end of this process, you will be able to wear any bra you want.
How Many Days After Breast Augmentation Surgery Can I Start Exercising?
You can start light walks on the 10th day after breast augmentation surgery. In addition, it would be better not to start sports that require heavy effort before 3 months.
Will My Breasts Be the Same After Breast Surgery?
It is very rare for breasts to be exactly symmetrical after breast surgery. In other words, complete symmetry is not a frequency but a rare condition. Since the two halves of the body are not symmetrical, there may be asymmetries in both the shape and placement of the nipple after the surgery. Additionally, breast shapes and sizes will not be exactly the same.
Can I be guaranteed to be satisfied with this plastic surgery?
Unfortunately, there is no guarantee that you will be satisfied with the results. Do not forget that you and your doctor are both humans. Due to problems arising from you and your doctor, there may be patients who are not fully satisfied with the results after surgery, and revision surgeries may be required in these patients.
What Can I Do to Make My Scars Remain Less?
The first thing to do is not to smoke. In addition, keeping the wound areas moist with moisturizing creams increases the efficiency of wound healing. Another precaution is to prevent the wound areas from exposure to the sun or solarium. During the healing period, wound areas exposed to sunlight may darken and this may persist permanently. This period of attention is three months. In addition, using creams recommended by doctors that are thought to reduce scarring, twice a day for three months, starting on the 15th day of surgery, will support wound healing. Another support system is the use of silicone sheets in patients who need it. Although these layers are not necessary for every patient, they help reduce scars in necessary patients.
I Have Keloid Scars, Can I Have Breast Reduction and Lift Surgery?
Keloid patients can have this surgery only from the armpit, and in this case, there is a lower risk of keloid. This risk is very high under the breast and excessive scars seriously reduce surgery satisfaction.
