What is breast augmentation and why do it?

Breast augmentation is one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures in the world. It consists of increasing or restoring the volume and asymmetry of the breasts using different techniques.

The different types of breast augmentation in Turkey

Depending on the patient’s aesthetic choices, as well as the positioning and anatomical shape of the breasts, the plastic surgeon may propose different breast augmentation techniques in Turkey.

Mastopexy or breast lift

A breast lift is an operation to correct sagging or asymmetrical breasts and minor imperfections. It is a kind of breast rejuvenation. It is recommended after breast-feeding, pregnancy or weight loss.

The operation consists of removing excess sagging skin to tighten the breasts and give them fullness and curves. Performed under general anaesthetic, mastopexy is an operation that lasts approximately 1? to 2 hours. A small incision is made in the nipple to remove excess skin. It leaves small scars that are invisible to the naked eye.

Breast augmentation by lipofilling

Breast lipofilling is a cosmetic surgery procedure in Turkey that involves increasing breast volume by filling in fat. This minimally invasive operation is the best alternative after a mastectomy following breast cancer.

Breast lipofilling initially involves removing natural fat from areas of the body where it is present (the thighs, stomach or buttocks). This fat is then reinjected into the breasts. This operation is carried out under conditions of impeccable hygiene.

The result is long-lasting, very natural and, above all, scar-free. Touch-ups are still possible, however, as the reinjected fat can sometimes melt.

Breast augmentation using prostheses

Breast augmentation by breast prosthesis involves inserting breast implants. This is the most common and reliable operation for achieving long-lasting results and, above all, no touch-ups.

This consists of implanting silicone breast implants filled with physiological saline under the breast tissue to shape the breasts. The silicone gel is risk-free, with rare side effects.

Carried out under general anaesthetic, theoperation will last 1 to 2 hours. The surgeon will implant the breast prostheses via the areola (areola) or axilla (armpit), and sometimes the submammary region.

Depending on the type and thickness of the skin, implants can also be placed under the pectoralis major muscle. The size of the breast implants depends on the bra cup size desired by the patient. The operation is carried out in a single operation and does not require any touch-ups.

What is the procedure for breast augmentation in Turkey?

The first thing to do for a breast augmentation in Turkey is to contact a clinic in Istanbul. Once you have chosen your clinic, you will have an initial appointment with the plastic surgeon. This will take place by videoconference.

The surgeon will ask for photographs of your breasts to enable him or her to carry out digital simulations and choose the most appropriate surgical operation.

Testimonial following breast augmentation

The surgeon may request additional blood tests to ensure that you are fit to undergo breast augmentation and also to determine your serology (HIV, hepatitis, etc.) so that appropriate measures can be taken.

Do you have HIV? A special clinic has been set aside for you to undergo breast augmentation in complete safety for you and the staff.

The second on-site consultation

A second consultation takes place in Istanbul. This is an appointment that allows the surgeon to take measurements of the breasts and carry out a real simulation of the breast operation. This is also the time to receive final instructions before the operation.

Once the breast augmentation operation is complete, you will be placed in the recovery room. You will stay overnight in the clinic under supervision. You may feel some aches and pains as the anaesthetic wears off.

A period of recovery is necessary before you can resume your daily life. During this period, you will receive post-operative monitoring to assess your state of health and note any reactions or side effects. This post-operative follow-up will also allow us to note whether the prostheses have adhered well.

The convalescence period

The convalescence period is a minimum of one week. To recover properly, a period of 15 days is recommended. During the convalescence period, the patient must wear a support bra. She should not carry out any large-scale work that could tire her.

For better healing, ointment can be applied to the scars. Swelling and small lumps may appear around the breast. An ice pack may be applied, but this should not be done systematically.

Resuming sporting activities is not recommended in the 2 months following the operation. Exposure to the sun should also be avoided for several months. The new breasts will take on their final appearance after 6 months.
