Breast augmentation surgery aims to increase the volume of the breasts in accordance with
the patient's wishes and body characteristics.
Who is a good candidate for breast augmentation?
SIZE AND SHAPE
Patients who are worried that their breasts are not big enough even though they
have completed their growth, think that they are incompatible with their body,
or unhappy with the shape, are suitable patients for breast augmentation.
HEALTH AND DEVELOPMENT
In order to undergo a breast augmentation, the patient must first have completed
the growth of the breasts. For this, the patient must be over the age of 18. But
most importantly, the patient's overall health should be good and aware of the
needs of the process.
The satisfaction with the operation depends not only on the success of the
operation, but also on the expectations of the patient. The patient must fully
understand the change she will achieve at the end of the operation. At this
point, it is very important to explain the limits and freedoms of change in the

In the inspection process, it is possible to create a 3D model of the patient's
breasts and show the changes that will be performed by surgery on this
simulation. Thus, it is ensured that the patients see the results of the breast
augmentation before the operation and make the best decision for the patient.
Although it is aimed to enlarge the breasts, which will greatly beautify the
general lines of the patient, it is equally important that the results of the
operation are a natural image compatible with the body lines of the patient. In
the operation, thanks to 3-4 cm incisions hidden in the natural lines of the
breast, the scars are not visible.
There are many options from classical drop and round shaped silicone prostheses
to modern polyurethane coated prosthesis to best meet the patient's unique needs
and wishes. If the patient meets the appropriate conditions, it is possible to
enlarge the breast with oil transfer or alternative methods.
What should be done before breast augmentation surgery?
For an efficient inspection, a little research on procedures or plastic surgery can be very useful. In this way, the patient can explain his wishes and expectations more easily, so that he can get the closest result from the operation.
The first meeting to be held with the plastic surgeon is the first step to determine the needs and desires of the patient and to create a treatment plan. In this inspection, it is aimed to remove all the question marks in the mind of the patient and make the necessary simulations.
Drugs written by the doctor for the operation should be obtained in advance. Since the patient cannot continue his social life for at least a few days after the operation, she must prepare herself for this situation, suspend some work and consider some activities that will help her pass the time.
It is important that aspirin and other blood-thinning medications are stopped before the operation. It is necessary for the patient to declare the medicines and nutritional supplements used during the examination in order to stop its use during the preparation for the operation. Smoking must be stopped 2 weeks before the operation.
Since general anesthesia will be taken, it is inconvenient for the patient to drive a car immediately after the operation. Similarly, the patient may need a companion during the rest period. In this case, the patient should be with a companion who can help her for a while after the operation and get support.
Since the patient will make a sacrifice from his business and social life for a few days after the operation, he should make the necessary plans by making the necessary arrangements before and after the operation.
What precautions should be follow after the procedure?
The drugs written by the doctor to be used in the healing process must be taken as described. In addition to pain medications, antibiotics and swelling-reducing medications can be prescribed.
Although the patient can return to his social life within 3-4 days after the operation, it is not okay to do exercises for about 1 month. It is appropriate for the patient to return to the normal exercise regime may take approximately 6 weeks.
It is inconvenient to use underwire bras in the first 6 weeks after breast augmentation. It is both comfortable and safe to use a sports bra in this process where the tissue is healed.
Balanced and healthy nutrition is important in the post-operative period in order for tissue healing to take place quickly and effectively. Generally, there is no restriction on eating and drinking.
No anti-inflammatory drugs, including aspirin, should be used until at least 2 weeks after the operation, and no smoking should be used in this process, as this will significantly affect the healing process.
If temperature or redness is noticed in the breast or if the patient has a fever, this may be a sign of infection. When chest pain, shortness of breath or signs of infection appear, they should be contacted immediately.
