Women generally want to have more attractive breasts in their appearance. Breast implants can be used in cases where the breasts are genetically small and sagging. In this operation, breast prostheses that do not deform over time and are guaranteed for life are used. These prostheses are the right choice for enlarging the breast volume and for an aesthetic appearance.
WHAT IS BREAST PROSTHESIS?
Breast prostheses are of two types, round and anatomical. Round prostheses provide a more voluminous image in the milk area, thanks to the thicker middle parts of the postoperatively. Anatomical prostheses are designed to be thin at the top and thick at the bottom. This look is also known as a drop. After the surgery, the lower parts of the chest provide a more voluminous image.
IS BREAST PROSTHESIS REALLY SAFE?
Patients often fear that there is a relationship between breast prosthesis and cancer. However, such is not the case. Breast implants do not prevent or trigger cancer. Another concern is the rupture or bursting of the breast prosthesis. However, since the breast prosthesis is filled with adhesive gel, situations such as bursting, tearing, and deformation are not possible. When breast prosthesis surgery is regularly checked, the formation of capsule (the body’s covering of foreign substances with a membrane) can be observed, this is a rare condition seen in 1 in 300,000 patients. In such a case, there will be no risk if the doctor is consulted and appropriate treatment is taken.
BREAST PROSTHESIS OPERATION MAP
Breast prosthesis surgery is an operation that takes 1-2 hours under anesthesia. It does not feel any pain for the patient. Before the operation, it is planned in which areas and how the prostheses will be placed, 5-6 cm incisions are made in the areas where they will be placed, and silicones are easily placed. That is all! After the surgery, the incisions become indistinct day by day and begin to become invisible. Since incisions will be made under the breast, not in visible areas, the incision scars are already hidden.
IS IT NECESSARY TO RENEW THE BREAST PROSTHESIS?
Today, the breast prosthesis remains in your body as on the first day with a lifetime guarantee. You do not need to renew. However, about 15% of people undergo re-implant operation for reasons such as changing the size of the implant or being dissatisfied with its shape.
HEALING PROCESS AFTER BREAST PROSTHESIS OPERATION
After the operation, the patient should remain under observation on the same day. An accelerated treatment process is followed with appropriate drugs against infections and disorders that may occur. The patient should stay in the country for a week, as there will be follow-up and controls after the surgery. Mild pains that will occur in the first days are treated with painkillers. After the 3rd day, you can take a bath without removing the bands in the incisions. Bruising and edema may occur around the chest, but these will gradually decrease within 3-4 days. At the end of the second week, the tape in the incision is removed when the control is reached. After the surgery, a corset is worn to help accelerate blood circulation in the chest. For best results, this corset should be worn for a month. It is recommended to avoid heavy physical activities for the first two months. At the end of the 3rd month, the breasts begin to soften and the ideal result is obtained.
CAN A BREAST PROSTHESIS BE DIFFERENT FROM THE OUTSIDE?
Since the breast prosthesis is suitable for the person’s own body, it is not visible even when touched, not viewed from the outside. In patients who only want an exaggerated appearance,there may be clarity when viewed from the outside.
DOES THE BREAST AESTHETIC HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THE MILK DUCT?
Since the silicones are placed under the breast tissue, they do not come into contact with the milk ducts. However, the same is not the case for breast lift surgeries, since some of the breast tissue will be removed, the milk ducts may be damaged.
WHO CAN HAVE BREAST AESTHETICS?
It is suitable for every individual over the age of 18 who has completed breast development. However, in cases of some health problems, breast reduction surgery can also be performed on people under the age of 18 with the advice of a doctor.
HOW MUCH IS BREAST AESTHETICS?
Since it will vary according to the shape, size and brand of the breast prosthesis, this can only be determined before the operation and a price can be obtained.
