What is Breast Augmentation?

Breast augmentation surgeries are procedures for women to enlarge their breasts in size and shape. In breast augmentation surgery, a breast prosthesis is placed behind the breast. Thanks to this implanted prosthesis, chest circumference measurements can be enlarged by one or more sizes. Today, breast augmentation is one of the most applied aesthetic surgeries.

With breast augmentation surgeries, small breasts will become fuller, larger and more aesthetically perfect. Natural materials made of silicone, called prostheses or implants placed under the breast tissue, help increase breast volume. In breast augmentation surgeries, silicones will not have any negative effects on the body as long as they are not pierced and then spread to the body.

Of course, there are risks in all surgical operations. Self-confidence will increase even more in people who have breast augmentation surgery. If the individual feels physically healthy and his expectations from the surgery are realistic, this person will be a very suitable candidate for breast augmentation surgery.

For What Purposes Is Breast Augmentation Surgery Performed?

There are various reasons for having breast augmentation surgery. Having one breast smaller than the other or having small breasts can cause self-confidence problems in women. If this situation bothers the individual, it is useful to apply to the Plastic Surgery Department and be examined. In addition, breast augmentation surgery can be performed after breast cancer surgery.

It is very important to have an open communication with your surgeon in order to have the right expectations about the breast augmentation surgery process and the image you will encounter afterwards.

How is Breast Augmentation Operation Performed?

To insert the breast implant, your surgeon may make a single incision (incision) in one of three possible locations:
  • Inframammary under your chest
  • Under your arm (axillary)
  • Around your nipple (periareolar)
  • After the incision is made, the surgeon will separate your breast tissue from the muscles and connective tissue of your chest. This creates a pocket behind or in front of the outermost muscle of the chest wall (pectoral muscle). The surgeon will place the implant in this pocket and center it behind the nipple.
After the implant is in place, the surgeon will close the incision (the incision he made) with sutures and bandage it with skin glue and surgical tape. Choosing the incision site is important to minimize scar formation.
