Breast Augmentation

Nowadays, breast augmentation surgery is almost always performed with silicone implants. Do not trust techniques such as the ones providing breast augmentation with medications. Such medications contain hormone, and will cause different reactions in your body. Besides silicone implant placement, the other technique becoming more widespread with each passing day is breast augmentation with fat injection. With breast injections, very natural and aesthetic results can be achieved by providing augmentation with the patient's own tissue in non-sagging breast; however, keep in mind that this technique has disadvantages as well. Some of the fat tissues injected into your breasts may melt especially in smokers, and this surgical procedure requires you to have significant amount of fat in your body, for being able to have this surgery. 

DOES SILICONE IMPLANT HARM MY BODY?

Implants used have features insuring that they never harm the body and do not react with the body tissues. The new generation silicone implants do not get punctured or burst because they contain a solid silicone placed in a thick silicon membrane. Even if we slice such implants with a bread knife, their silicone content does not spread around.

WILL IMPLANTS NEED TO BE REMOVED?

Implants used have a structure that last life-long. However, sags requiring a new operation will occur in your breast structure if you experience excessive weight changes after surgery, or if you experience certain conditions such as pregnancy, breastfeeding, etc.

WHAT MUCH AUGMENTATION DO I NEED?

The size of the implant that we will place is determined based on the existing amount of your breast tissue and your chest diameter. With intent to determine the exact size, some preoperative drawings and measurements are performed on your breasts, and this allows us to achieve the most accurate result. I advise my patients to place in their bra certain tentative implants (used for trial purposes) with sizes equivalent to the implant sizes that I intend to use. In this way, I ascertain whether my patient likes it, and then we make a decision together.

WILL I HAVE SCARS

I usually perform my operations through a 3 to 5 cm incision made on the inframammary fold. Since the incision is located just on the fold, it is not in sight, and remains as a hardly visible line after 1 year. If lifting will also be needed, it remains a scar around the areola, or a scar around the areola that extends vertically down to the inframammary fold (in the shape of a lollipop), depending on the degree of sagging.

CAN IT BE PLACED THROUGH THE ARMPIT

Yes. Breast augmentation can be performed endoscopically, through an incision made in the armpit. However, since a restricted visual field can be obtained through an incision made in this area, it can be difficult to arrange a suitable pouch for implants. Implants filled with physiological saline solution (salt water) can be used instead of silicone implants, which are today used as the safest implants. I do not prefer this technique because of these disadvantages.

WILL I HAVE A TERRIBLE POSTOPERATIVE PAIN?

Compared to other breast surgeries, a breast implant placement operation causes greater postoperative pain. However, such pains can be minimized with a surgical operation respectful to tissues that does not involve bleeding. Nevertheless, the first 2-3 days are a little bit critical in this regard. However, as the edema regresses at the end of the 3rd day, the arm movements become easier and the sensitivity decreases.

WHEN WILL I BE ABLE TO GET BACK TO MY DAILY LIFE?

You can get back to your daily life 5 days after the surgery, but it is important to move your arm carefully for avoiding pain and the edema. Patients can return to desk jobs at the end of 5 days.

WILL I BE ABLE BREASTFEED AFTER SURGERY

Because the surgical intervention does not involve your breast tissue and milk ducts, your ability to breastfeed will not be affected.

WHAT ARE THE SURGICAL RISKS

Despite being rare, blood accumulation called hematoma can occur in the early postoperative period. In such a case, the accumulated blood may need to be drained in the operating room. However, this possibility is very low because of the controlled techniques respectful to tissues. If there are unilateral swelling and redness in the postoperative period, they may be the precursors of an infection. They usually respond to medication.

Cases such as implant rupture are out of question. Implants have features insuring that they do not rupture even if they are thrown from the 10th floor of a building or even if an articulated lorry passes over them.

In the long term, a condition referred to as capsule contracture can occur in some patients. Normally, the body wraps the implant with a thin membrane. If this membrane is thicker and harder than normal, it can cause pain and deformity. I perform the surgery with minimum surgical bleeding and place the implant under the muscle (submuscularly), with intent to minimize this risk. In addition, this risk has considerably decreased because of the use of textured implants.

DOES IMPLANTS CAUSE CANCER?

According to current medical information, there is no relation between silicone implants and cancer.

HOW MUCH TIME DO I NEED TO ALLOCATE FOR SURGERY?

It would be best to allocate 1 week for surgery.
