Breast augmentation surgery; It is to add volume to the breast with breast implants (silicone) or adipose tissue. The breast may be structurally small and may have lost volume after birth or pregnancy. With breast augmentation surgery, the fullness and projection of the breast is increased. In this way, a more feminine body shape is achieved.
To whom can it be done?
It can be done to healthy women who have completed their body development. The patient’s expectation from the surgery should be realistic. – If you feel that your breasts are small, if you feel that your breasts are empty after pregnancy and weight loss, if you find your upper body masculine, you are a candidate for breast augmentation surgery.
Anesthesia and Surgery
Breast augmentation surgery; It is made by silicone implant or adipose tissue transfer. Fat tissue transfer is the injection of fat from another part of the body into the breast. This method can be used when a relatively small volume is needed. A silicone implant is applied when larger volume replacement is required.
We perform breast augmentation surgeries with silicone implants under general anesthesia or with sedation (intravenous drug administration). Silicone can be implanted by making an incision of 3-4 cm from the nipple, the lower fold of the breast and the armpit. Before the operation, the appropriate incision is determined by talking to the patient.
Silicone is placed under the breast tissue or under the chest muscle. Before the operation, the level at which the silicone will be placed is determined according to the shape of the breast, the shape and size of the silicone, by interviewing the patient. There are serum-inflated and silicone gel-filled versions of the silicone implant. Silicone gel is used in our clinic. Silicone can be in the form of round and drop (anatomical). Shape preference is made according to the patient’s request and breast structure. The surface of silicone implants can be smooth or textured. We prefer rough implants due to some advantages (like rare capsule formation) in the late post-operative period.
Postoperative
After the breast surgery is over, the breast is tightly wrapped with plaster and sponges to reduce bleeding and prevent displacement of the implant. We usually use vacuum drains. On the second or third day after the surgery, we open the bandage and pull the drains according to the bleeding situation. On the 10th day, the stitches where the implant is placed are removed. The intensity of the pain that occurs during arm movements gradually decreases within a few weeks. We recommend the use of sports bras that do not leave marks for the first few months. You can be discharged from the hospital on the first or second day. Although breast implants last for many years; There may be variations in the appearance depending on factors such as age, gravity, weight loss, hormonal changes. For this reason, it may be necessary to replace the silicone after years (10-15 years) in some patients. It is beneficial to have an annual doctor check-up.
Risks
As in any surgery, general anesthesia has some risks in breast surgeries.
Bleeding is the most common complication in the early period. Sometimes it may be necessary to take the patient back to the operating room and stop the bleeding.
Infection – Decreased nipple sensation
Deformities due to poor adjustment of the position and size of the implant
A very rare hard tissue formation around the implant (capsule contracture)
Pain -Silicone implants have not been shown to cause any systemic (connective tissue diseases, cancer) disease.
