Breast augmentation surgery is performed not only in cases where breast tissue is removed or reduced for various reasons but also in situations where the patient has not undergone any operation and simply desires larger breasts. The surgery aims not only to enlarge the breasts but also to achieve a more shaped or desired form. Common practices include:

  • Composite breast augmentation,
  • English Style breast augmentation,
  • Keller Funnel breast augmentation,
  • Latin Style breast augmentation,
  • Hawaiian Style breast augmentation,
  • Brazilian Style breast augmentation,
  • Breast augmentation with chip implants.

How is Breast Augmentation Surgery Performed?

The steps of the procedure vary depending on the patient’s requests, the general condition of the breast tissue, and the final desired appearance. The operations are performed under general anesthesia, with the patient being put to sleep. Depending on the specific technique used, the operation lasts about one and a half to two hours, after which special bras are fitted to the patient post-surgery.

If no complications are observed, the patient is expected to be monitored in the hospital for just one night before being discharged. Breast augmentation is performed for reasons beyond just enlarging smaller breasts. It is also used to correct asymmetry, sagging, and various congenital issues.

What Kind of Implants Are Used in Breast Augmentation Surgery?

Recent advancements in the field of breast aesthetics have led to the development of new methods and types of prostheses or implants for breast augmentation. The two widely used and effective methods are fat injection and silicone implants.

Fat injection for breast augmentation has become increasingly popular in recent years. This method involves enriching and injecting fat tissues, obtained from stem cells, into the breasts. Although it may require repetition in some cases, this method offers advantages such as a natural appearance and the natural fullness of the breast tissue.

Breast augmentation with silicone implants is performed using highly advanced technologies compared to the past, with these fillers being frequently chosen in surgeries due to their various structures and gel ratios. The fifth-generation silicone implants are cohesive and have a significantly low level of gel fluidity.

In what situations is breast augmentation surgery performed?

There are various situations where breast augmentation is considered appropriate. These can be summarized as follows:

  • Cases where an increase in the fullness of breast tissue is desired.
  • Individuals with asymmetric breast structures who seek a symmetric appearance.
  • Breast shapes with congenital anatomical issues.
  • Situations where the desired appearance is lost due to pregnancy, weight loss, or aging.
  •  All cases where the patient is dissatisfied with their breast size.

Certain conditions are expected for the surgery to be performed, which can be stated as follows:

  •  The patient must be of legal age for breast augmentation.
  •  The breast structure should have completed its development.
  •  There should be no contraindications to receiving general anesthesia in terms of physical and mental health.
  •  The patient should have realistic expectations and request the surgery of their own volition.


Things to Be Cared for After Breast Augmentation Surgery

The importance of rest conditions for the patient after breast augmentation surgery is significant in the healing process. Although the procedure lasts about an hour and a half, an overnight hospital stay under observation is required. Other important considerations include:

  • Prescribed painkillers should be used carefully.
  • Depending on the speed of the body’s recovery, the patient should rest for 3-4 days.
  • Heavy lifting should be avoided, and strenuous exercises should be shunned.
