How is breast augmentation surgery done? Why is it done? Curious things Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeon Assoc. Dr. We learned from Karaca Başaran.
The importance given to the pleasantness of the breast dates back to centuries ago. The breasts, which are the symbol of femininity, may deform depending on many factors or may not complete their development due to genetic or hormonal reasons. Due to this lack of development, the breasts remain small. Accordingly, problems may occur in the self-confidence of women. However, it is possible to create fuller, more aesthetically pleasing breasts with breast augmentation surgery. Breast augmentation is one of the most performed operations in our country and in the world. Advances in breast implant technology and surgical techniques have made breast augmentation a very reliable and effective procedure, allowing patients to get beautiful and natural-looking results. Many factors to consider when considering breast augmentation surgery and there are options. We can list them as follows;
Implant sizes are measured in “cubic centimeters” (cc) and range from 120cc to 960cc
The implant profile indicates the interval at which the implant projects from the body—high-profile implants obviously silhouette more than low-profile implants.
Implant states are rounded, may be in the form of drops.
Inframammary (under the breast)
Periareolar (around the lower half of the areola)
Transumbilical or TUBA (around the navel)
Submuscular placement: under the pectoral muscle
Submammary or Subglandular placement: between the pectoral muscle and the breast tissue
under the muscle membrane
Saline: the implant is placed in the body while it is empty, after it is placed it is filled with sterile saline solution.
Silicone: the implant is filled with silicone gel (viscous liquid that mimics the structure and feel of human breast tissue) before being placed in the body.
