Surgical Intervention: It is the contouring the size and shape of the breasts with various types of breast implants. During the procedure, “breast implants”, one of the most technologically advanced materials, are used. Today, cohesive silicone gel implants are generally preferred. With these implants, risks such as infiltration in other tissues and implant burst are eliminated. As they best imitate the consistency of the breast tissue, anatomic breast implants that look like fried eggs, which are popularly called “drop” implants, are also a thing of the past. In this way, the implants cannot be noticed even when the patients are naked.
With recent studies, the use of fat cells taken from the person’s own tissue, which can replace breast implants, in breast augmentation has begun to be considered more. For sure, the stem cells in the adipose tissue are purified and injected together with the fatty adipose tissue, increasing the success of this method, which has been tried many times before. In this way, it is possible to make sufficient augmentation in fewer times by ensuring that more fatty tissue survives after injection.
-Surgery time: 40 minutes – 2 hours.
-Anesthesia: General anesthesia or local anesthesia under sedation.
-Stay at hospital: Usually overnight
-Possible inconveniences: Temporary pain, swelling, temporary decrease in nipple sensation (very rare). Sensitivity to touch in the breast for a week or two
Risks: Formation of a hard sheath around the prosthesis in the breast (capsule contracture), general surgical risks such as bleeding and infection, late-term complications such as increased or decreased sensitivity of the nipple are below 1%, and it required an experienced radiologist in subsequent mammograms.
-Back to work: In 3-7 days. Physical contact to the breasts is 2-3 weeks, non-wired sports bras are worn
– Fading of the scars: In 2-4 months.
