Breast augmentation is the most common plastic-aesthetic procedure performed on women. The beauty ideal of a full breast that conjures up an attractive décolleté is considered by many to be the epitome of femininity. In fact, in our daily practice we experience again and again that women with breast augmentation have a stronger self-confidence, feel freer and happier.
*Deformation of the breasts through pregnancy and lactation
*Asymmetric or too small breasts
*Deformation after major weight loss
Deformities and aesthetic blemishes are eliminated in a breast surgery in a safe and sustainable way. By inserting silicone breast implants, both breasts are optically perfected and look the way you want them to at the end.

Considerations before breast surgery
In order to minimise the risks of breast surgery and guarantee a satisfactory result, a number of measures are taken before the operation:
To ensure that breast augmentation is carried out safely in Turkey, the patient is first thoroughly examined. The general condition is checked as well as the condition of the breasts. For patients over 40 years of age, ultrasound sonography and mammography are also performed.
The choice of breast implant
Each breast implant consists of a silicone shell and a filling. The filling is different. This is how fillings are dispensed:
In addition to the filling, breast implants also differ in their shape, as the result should fit the woman’s body perfectly. Here you can find:
Round implants that make the breast appear fuller at the top and bottom and rounder overall.
Anatomical implants that imitate the natural shape of the breast and therefore have a drop shape.
Depending on the anatomical conditions, the appropriate shape of the breast implants is determined in a consultation. The condition of the thorax is taken into account as well as the physiological limits of the skin tissue. Special bras are used to illustrate the result: they contain the selected breast implant in the appropriate size and can give an indication of what the final result will look like after the breast operation.
Procedure: How does breast augmentation work?
Breast augmentation can be performed in many different ways. The most gentle method is to insert the implants through the breast fold.
A four to six centimetre long incision is made in the skin fold under the breast, through which the implant is inserted into a premodeled pocket. This preserves both the sensation and the breastfeeding ability of the breast.
Anaesthesia and OP duration
Breast augmentation is performed as part of an operation under general anesthesia. Depending on the extent, the operation takes 1.5 to 3 hours. After successful surgery, a breast bandage and a special bra are applied. The combination of these two measures prevents painful oedema and minimizes the risk of complications. Although the patient can get up again after the anaesthesia has subsided, on average a few hours after the operation, an overnight stay in hospital is recommended. There the lying position in bed, the administration of painkillers and the observation of wound healing can be optimally guaranteed.
Healing process after breast surgery
Immediately after breast augmentation, the breast itself and adjacent areas of the body will be swollen and may feel unfamiliar and tense. A slight discoloration of these areas is also possible.
All these complaints usually subside after a few weeks. In some cases, however, the wound healing takes place over a longer period of several months and a maximum of one year. Regular check-ups at the doctor’s monitor the progress of the healing process and the body’s reaction to the breast implants.
To relieve the pain immediately after the operation and to support the healing process, the surgeon prescribes appropriate medication, ointments and special bras.
Behaviour after breast augmentation
As a rule, patients can resume their work a few days after the operation. However, it is important not to exercise within the first four to six weeks and not to lift heavy loads at least eight weeks after the operation. The first physical contact with the enlarged breast should only take place after three to four weeks. The supporting special bra should be worn for four to six weeks.
