Breast augmentation surgery or silicone surgery, is the process of enlarging and filling the breast tissue by placing silicone implants under the breast tissue or chest muscle. The breast implants can be placed under the muscle or under the mammary gland. The placement of the implant is chosen according to the condition of the patient’s breast tissue and chest muscle. The size of the implant is determined by both the patient and the doctor, taking into account the patient’s preference, the size of the breast, the elasticity of the breast skin and the dimensions of the rib cage.

Frequently Asked Questions

Silicones are placed into the breast tissue through a 3-4 cm incision made under the breast. The incision remains in the lower fold of the breast. The scars will have some redness to them for the first 3-6 months but they will fade over time and become less obvious.

The silicone implants are placed under the breast tissue or under the breast muscle, and there is no interference with the mammary glands. This implies that the implants do not prevent lactation.

As long as there are no problems such as capsule formation or infection, new generation implants last for life and do not need to be changed. The breast implants can’t get damaged by pressure or blunt trauma. An implant can only be damaged by a sharp instrument.

Sometimes there may be temporary loss of sensation or hypersensitivity in the nipples. These issues usually resolve completely within a few months.

With the use of the example implants available at our clinic, you can see how the different sizes fit on you and decide along with the doctor on the size that suits you best. Implants are divided by shape and by sheath. Implants are round or anatomical (drop) shaped. And according to their sheaths, they are divided into two types as rough and smooth surface. My (Doctor Emre) preference is round and smooth-surfaced implants, and my choice of brands is either mentor and motiva.
