In addition, all these types of implants are available in different sizes. Implants can be placed through the cuts made in different areas. They can be placed below or over the muscles. State your expectations openly to your doctor and decide together on which option is the best one for you.Ask the Doctor Now
Breast augmentation surgery usually lasts 1-2 hours. The time needed depends to some extent on how and where the implants will be placed.
Breast augmentation surgery is usually performed when the patient is under general anesthesia. Anesthesiologist makes the patient fall asleep via intravenous sedation or breathing, and keeps the patient asleep until the end of surgery. The patient does not hear, see or feel anything during the operation. When breast implant surgery is completed, the patient is woken up from anesthesia, but he or she usually feels tired and numb for a while afterwards. It will be helpful if someone who trusts takes care of you in this process. Some patients can experience side effects of anesthesia such as throat ache, headache, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, shaking and muscle pain. These effects are temporary, and they slowly disappear as anesthesia leaves your system. If you experienced any problems before that result from anesthesia, tell your doctor about it during the consultation.
Making the Cut
Breast augmentation surgery starts by making a cut below the breast, on the armpit or around areola (encircling the nipple). In breast augmentation surgery, making the cut where it cannot easily be seen is among the top priorities for both the patient and the doctor. Although the marks become indistinct over time, they never completely disappear. For that reason, making the cut in a place that cannot easily be seen makes the result of the operation better. The area where the cut will be made is defined according to the conditions. When deciding for silicone breasts, the will of the patient and her unique anatomy is considered.
Placement of Implants
There are two different implant methods among breast augmentation methods. These methods are placement of implant below the breast tissue (subglandular) and below the breast muscle (submascular). Some surgeons suggest breast implants to be placed in front of breast muscle, because this method decreases the pain after operation. Other surgeons suggest the implant to be placed behind breast muscle so that it will not affect the result of future breast x-rays. You should decide with your surgeon on which method is the best for you.
After the breast implant is placed, the cut is carefully closed with stitches. While some surgeons use absorbable threads, others those traditional threads. If the thread used in your operation are traditional ones, they are need to be removed when your surgeon decides the cut is closed enough and there is no longer the need for stitches. This is between the first and second week after the breast augmentation surgery. Absorbable stitches are decayed by the body and they dissolve on their own.
Drains and Bandages
Breast augmentation surgery ends after the cuts are closed and bandaged. Breasts are wrapped in gauze and supported. A special surgical bra that provides support is worn during the first few weeks. Or, the surgeon may suggest the use of gauze or sports bra. It is crucial to follow the doctor’s orders about when and how to wear supporting clothes. Thus, recovery process is accelerated and the discomfort is minimized.
Keeping the area of the stitches clean is crucially important. Avoid putting the cut area in water. Do not allow dirt or any substance to touch this area. Avoid all kinds of tiring activity, heavy lifting and stretching that can pull the stitches. Otherwise, your recovery process will be prolonged and your stitches will be more visible.
What Should I Expect?
Breast augmentation surgery increases the size of your breasts and beautifies their shape. Similar to many other women that had this operation, your self-confidence may increase. The results of breast augmentation surgery are usually long term.
Breast augmentation surgery cannot stop the natural effect of time on the size and shape of breasts. Breast augmentation surgery cannot correct breasts that are seriously sagging. Breast lift surgery as well as breast augmentation should be performed in order to make sagging breasts lifted and increase their size. Breast lift is usually performed at the same time with breast augmentation. However, it may be necessary to perform these at different times. Your aesthetic surgeon will help you make this decision.Get an Appointment
The Process after Breast Augmentation
Recovery after breast augmentation surgery follows certain steps. At first, breasts are stretched and swollen. Besides, there may be pain. During the next 6 weeks, significant recovery takes place. After a 3 month long period, most of the swelling disappears, breasts become softer and they look more natural. Of course, this period is directly related to your anatomy. Usually, you have to wait for 1 week before work and 6 weeks before exercising.
Swelling, pain and discomfort is observed. This is the period when most of the medicine is needed. Bruising may occur. Edema and weight gain is widely seen. This is the hardest part of the period after surgery, but don’t worry, it won’t last long.
Going Back to Normal
Showering and getting the wounds wet for a short while is usually okay. However, make sure your surgeon approves it. Constipation may be experienced because of painkillers. Pain tends to occur between 3 and 6 at night, and it increases if implants are placed under the muscle.
Be careful about signs of bleeding and infection between 7th and 10th days. This is also when the stitches are removed. Most of the swelling start to decrease. Pain may not have stopped yet but it is milder.
Risk of infection and bleeding is lower. You can start doing low level exercises. Sometimes there is pain at night. Nerves start to awaken. As a result, needle sticking feeling may be experienced on the nipple area.
Pain Went Away
Painkillers are seldom needed. Heavier aerobic exercises may be done.
Scar tissue loosens over time and stiffness decreases. The remaining 5-10% swelling disappears.

What are the Options for Breast Augmentation Surgery?
Breast augmentation surgery can be performed with breast implants or fat injection. Breast implants are of two kind, saline and silicone. In addition, implants are produced in many different sizes, shapes and tissues.
Saline implants are placed emptily in breasts. Then, they are filled with salty water. Even if implant has leakage, salty water is absorbed by the body and naturally moved away from the area.
Silicone implants include a flexible gel that feel similar to natural breast tissue. A bigger cut can be needed during placement. They may have to be checked regularly, because in case of a leakage, silicone cannot be observed naturally by the body.
Cohesive Gel Silicone implants are filled with a silicone gel that is more consistent than traditional silicone. They usually keep their shape better but they need a bigger cut. They are also known as jelly bean silicone. Implants can be placed under or above the breast muscle. Also, there are a few areas where the cut can be created.
What is Breast Lift Surgery?
Breast lift surgery is usually combined with breast augmentation surgery to increase the size of the upper part of breasts. During breast lift surgery, excess skin tissue is removed and breast tissue is reshaped. For most women, a gentle cut around the nipple is enough to perform this procedure. The cut should be bigger for people who have excess skin tissue.
When Can I Have Sexual Intercourse?
Many surgeons suggest you to wait for 2 weeks, because having high blood pressure may cause blood accumulation around implants. You should avoid positions that may dislocate the implants for 6 months.
How Do I Decide on the Right Size for Breast Augmentation?
The size of breast implants and the fat that is going to be injected is measured in cubic centimeters. Implants that are the same size look different on different people. It is important that you talk to your surgeon about your expectations and the results you want. This way, he or she may help you with choosing the most suitable size for yourself.
What Happens During the Day of Operation?
Breast augmentation surgery usually takes 1-3 hours. Firstly, you are given an anesthetic. General anesthesia is the type of anesthesia that is most widely used during breast augmentation surgeries. However, local anesthesia may also be used in certain situations. When you are ready for breast surgery, your doctor and their team start to follow the operation plan you agreed on. After the operation, you are monitored for a short while. Then, you can go home if your doctor doesn’t suggest otherwise.
How long is the Recovery Process?
Recovery after breast augmentation surgery follows certain processes. At first, breasts are tense and swollen. Also, there can be pain. Recovery mostly take place during the following 6 months. After the 3 month long period, most of the swelling disappears, breasts look softer and more natural. Of course, this period is directly linked to your anatomy. Usually, you need to quit work for 1 week and exercising for 6 weeks.
How Long do the Results Last?
The results of breast augmentation surgery is mostly long lasting. On the other hand, it is important to regularly monitor the state of implants on breasts with silicones. It is enough to look at a mirror to control the state of saline implants. Leakage is clearly apparent, because in case of leakage, the implant deflates and the salty water in it is absorbed by the body. Those who have silicone implants are advised to get an MRI scan in 3 years after the implant is placed, and then once every 2 years.
What are the Possible Side Effects?
When performed by an experienced surgeon, success rate of breast augmentation surgery is very high. Still, like every operation, breast augmentation surgery is not without risks. Possible side effects include infection, bleeding, hematoma, capsular contracture, implant rapture, bad reaction to anesthesia and dissatisfactory results that require additional surgical procedures.
Should I Wait Until I Will Not Have Other Kids to Have Breast Augmentation Surgery?
There is no certain answer that can be given to this question. This is a very personal matter, and only you can make this decision. If you consider having children soon, we advise you to wait.
What Will the Scars of Surgery be like?
In breast augmentation surgery, the cut is made under the breast, along the lines of areola (around the nipple) or on the armpit. When deciding where the cut will be made, your preference on this, how comfortable the surgeon is with this method and the type or implant is considered. Cut marks recover very well and they usually do not stand out. It takes up to 1 year before the marks take their final form. There are a few things that can help you during this. Pressuring the recovered mark and massaging it improves the appearance. Make sure that the mark is not exposed to direct sunlight. Marks tend to change colour when they are exposed to ultraviolet light during their recovery period. If there are still marks that stand out after 1 year, your surgeon may consider options such as steroid injection, laser treatment or the surgical recovery of the mark.
