What Is Breast Augmentation Surgery?

Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure that is performed because it is sometimes smaller than normal sizes, sometimes because it is larger, more collective, and more alive to achieve breast aesthetics. Although breast augmentation surgery is usually requested by women with small breasts, it can also be preferred by women who want to have a larger and more beautiful breast image from time to time. In addition, it is an aesthetic intervention requested by women whose both breasts are not the same size or who have an imbalance in the chest area as a result of a disease, a blow – accident. From time to time, after breastfeeding processes, it is also performed for reasons such as loss of elasticity of the breasts, breast shrinkage, and sagging problems. It is possible to achieve more aesthetic images permanently with breast augmentation surgeries that are also in demand for more alive – larger or upright and plump breast positions.

How Is Breast Augmentation Surgery Performed?

Breast augmentation operations, referred to as breast prosthesis or silicone placement, are one of the surgical interventions that can be completed in at least 1 to no more than 1.5 hours. During patient and physician interviews, it is decided what type and size silicones will be preferred. A doctor gives detailed information about breast augmentation surgery and transmits computer-aided images of what their breasts will look like after surgery. After the decision is made about the operation, depending on the criteria such as the patient’s age, height, etc., sedation and anesthesia-effective drugs are injected with the anesthesiologist and the patient is put into full sleep.

The entrance area of breast surgery is determined by the doctor in advance and the patient is presented with the necessary information. The areas where silicone prostheses will be placed vary depending on factors such as the type and size of the prostheses used. A surgical incision is made from one of the places, such as the armpit, nipple, under the chest. It is usually preferred under the cut breast. The reason for this is that the surgical scar, which will already look very light, is further hidden under the breast. Prostheses are reached through the incision and placed in the tissue under the breast or in the tissue of the breast muscle. After that, aesthetic stitches are thrown and the patient is sent to his room to be awakened.

 

TYPES OF BREAST AUGMENTATION SURGERY

  1. Saline breast implants

Saline breast implants, which are filled with sterile salt water, provide a consistent shape, firmness, and feel and are FDA-approved for augmentation in women aged 18 and over.

  1. Structured saline breast implants

Structured implants are filled with sterile salt water and have an interior structure that helps the implant feel more natural.

  1. Silicone breast implants

Silicone gel-filled implants are comprised of silicone shells filled with a plastic gel to increase the size of the breasts, but they are more harmful if they leak.

  1. Gummy bear breast implants

The silicone gel which has a thicker consistency than regular silicone gel implants, making them firmer.

  1. Round breast implants

The implants which are spherical and have the same dimensions across the entire implant.

  1. Smooth breast implants

Smooth breast implants have the softest sensation and may allow for more natural movement.

  1. Textured breast implants

Textured breast implants form scar tissue that adheres to the implant, making it less probable for it to move around inside the breast and be adjusted.

Breast Augmentation Surgery Risks

If the patient is over 40 years of age, radiological examinations called mammography and ultrasonography are performed before surgery. Each operation has general or specific risks. Edema and pain in the breast area are complaints seen after surgery. Bleeding and infection due to surgery are rare conditions. Some patients complain of increased or decreased sensitivity to the nipple after surgery, or numbness around the incision. This is usually temporary. It has been suggested that some connective tissue diseases develop in the body against the prosthesis, which is a foreign body (connective tissue disease), make it difficult to give milk to the baby, and the prosthesis causes cancer. But none of this has been scientifically proven .


Breast augmentation surgery, breast augmentation can be provided with a foreign substance for the body, there may be problems with the prosthesis. Around the prosthesis, there may be hardening and narrowing due to the development of a membrane called a capsule. 


A thin membrane does not cause any problems, if a medium-thick membrane is formed, a slight stiffness in the breast and a noticeable difference in the base of the breast can be noticed. In rare cases, the body may not accept this foreign substance, it tries to form a thick membrane (capsule) around the prosthesis, compress and confine it, and sometimes throw it out of the body. If a thick capsule is formed, stiffness and sometimes asymmetry can be observed in the breasts. In case of mild and medium capsular contracture, external massage and October surgery may be performed to remove the capsule around the prosthesis

Recovery Process After Surgery

After breast augmentation surgery, pain is expected. It occurs because the prosthesis is placed under the pectoral muscle. The pain will be severely reduced at the end of the first week after surgery. 

 

Another cause of pain is that the breast prosthesis creates tension on the surrounding tissues. When a breast prosthesis is placed under the breast tissue, the pain felt after surgery becomes less. The feeling of tension is more at the forefront. Restricting shoulder and arm movements for a period of time controls the formation of pain, ensuring that the pectoral muscle remains loose.After surgery, numbness in the breasts or, on the contrary, hypersensitivity is possible.

 

 The duration of the hospital stay after breast augmentation surgery is one night. In the morning operations, it is possible to be discharged on the same day. After surgery, the patient is dressed in a bra in the form of a corset. It is useful to use this bra for a month. After the first dressing, it is possible to shower. It would be appropriate to spend the first week resting.

 

 A week after surgery, pain, edema, tension, minor bruising, if any, begins to disappear, the patient moves more comfortably and can return to his daily life. Patients can be returned to office work after a week. But for patients working in a strenuous physically paced job, this process is prolonged.

After some operations, the patient experiences pain not only in the breast area, but also in the shoulders, neck and back. Cramps occur in places, which are controlled by pectoral muscle relaxants. A maximum of 1 Week of rest is enough for patients to return to their normal life after the operation, and then life can be continued by protecting them from heavy exercises, sports and blows.
