What is Breast Augmentation?
Since Breast Augmentation is preferred by most women, it is one of the most common aesthetic surgeries. Applied for breasts, which are smaller than normal due to genetic factors or have lost their fullness due to excessive and sudden weight loss, Breast Augmentation can also be applied in order to fix the shrinking caused by nursing. During the same operation, the inequalities between the breasts are eliminated. After getting Breast Augmentation surgery, women become more confident in their social life, they can wear bikinis or whatever they like and they say that they are happier with their new appearance. Breast Augmentation, albeit in a primitive level, is a procedure performed approximately since the 1800s. Since modern materials are compatible with body, they eliminate the risks and allow better results. Silicone implants have been used in breast augmentation surgeries since 1960’s. They are produced from the substances in sands or crystals, they are processed in the laboratory and get their final form. We know that it is not harmful for the body and the material does not change in time to cause damage. Since silicone is in its most natural state, today it is used in many medications.
Who can get Breast Augmentation?
As for other operations, Breast Augmentation surgery is an operation that you decide to get by yourself without the influence of someone else. If the patient has complaints about small breasts, if the breasts have shrunk and lost their hardness after giving birth, if the breasts have differences of shape and size due to weight loss, if one of the breasts is smaller than the other, if the patient thinks that the clothes don’t suit and if the breasts have completed their developmental process, the patient can get Breast Augmentation. Breast Augmentation operations can be performed for people of all ages, but it is essential for the breasts to have completed their development process. Most women think that they shouldn’t get breast surgeries before having a baby. The main reason of this mistake is that they are worried about the nursing period. Yet, breast surgeries are certainly performed so as not to affect the milk glands and they do not constitute an obstacle to breastfeeding.
Examination of Breast Augmentation
During Breast Augmentation examination, Doctor B plans the operation in collaboration with the patient. The nipples are examşned according to the shape of the breasts. Doctor B questions your expectations about the size and decides whether it is possible to obtain. During the examination, the method and incision area is discussed and planned. Also, Doctor B answers your questions. Your photographs are taken for medical archive and your breasts are measured.
Application of Breast Augmentation
Breast Augmentation operations are performed under general anesthesia. Doctor B often uses a dual plane technique in breast augmentation surgeries. Dual plane technique is applied by placing the silicone implant under the muscle tissue. Due to this method, patients feel less pain, have minimal scars and get the most natural look. It is impossible to have no scars in Breast Augmentation surgeries, but the location and size of the scars is an important issue and one of the most popular questions among the patients is the size of scar after the surgery. With this method, you can wear any kind of clothes and bathing suits you like and we would like to ensure you that you will no longer have to worry about this issue. Due to this technique, only a 3 cm incision is done and it is concealed under the breast. The incision is closed after placing the implant.
The most important issue in Breast Augmentation operations is avoiding a surreal size and shape and getting a natural look.
After Breast Augmentation
Breast Augmentation takes approximately 1 to 3 hours. Generally, patients are not kept in the hospital after the surgery, but they can spend one night if it’s necessary. The area gets a dressing and bandage after the operation. Elastic bandages and a special bra are used to prevent swelling and support the breasts. A drain is placed under the bandage in order to stop excess blood or fluid discharge. It is removed after the control. After Breast Augmentation, the final shape and location of the breasts appear in a couple of months. If you want a lifelong comfort and an aesthetic look after the Breast Augmentation operation, you should visit Doctor B periodically and get an examination. The breasts may change due to aging, hormonal factors and the effect of gravity, that’s why, if a revised application is needed, you can be informed about it on time.
