What is Breast Enlargement?
Breasts are the most important features of female body because they symbolize femininity and sexuality. Small breasts may have a direct impact on self-confidence and self-esteem. Breast enlargement surgery brings a solution to those who want bigger breasts. Underdeveloped breasts, differences in breast sizes, changes after pregnancy or changes in appearance due to breast-feeding are some reasons women go ahead with breast enlargement. One may also just want to make her breasts look fuller and bigger. Breast enlargement surgery, also called augmentation mammoplasty or boob job, is therefore one of the most performed medical procedures in the world. It increases the size, form and symmetry of breasts.
Breast Enlargement is performed to increase the size of small breasts or breasts which are not developed completely. Mammoplasty may also bring back and enlarge breast volume if it has diminished as a result of pregnancy and breast-feeding. Breast implants can serve for a number of purposes; breast cancer patients may undergo boob job surgery for reconstructive purposes after mastectomy or women with asymmetrical breasts may have a single breast implant to balance the differences in size. All women over 22 years old seeking cosmetic boob jobs may choose silicone breast implants.
Breast Enlargement Treatment Options
The size and the type of breast implants in Turkey will be determined by the patient’s preference, body shape, weight, breast tissue. Breast implant alternatives are:
Saline breast implants: Filled with salty water which is sterilized, saline implants can be filled to fit a prearranged size. Saline can also be filled during breast surgery to avoid major modifications in breast implant size.
Silicone filled breast implants: Filled with soft, elastic gel, silicone breast implants are pre-filled and may need a longer cut to be placed.
How Breast Enlargement is Performed
Breast enlargement surgery takes about 2 hours. The appropriate size, the area of incisions and the placement of implants whether it would be on top of or underneath the chest muscle will be jointly decided by the patient and the plastic surgeon. General anaesthesia or intravenous sedation is applied before the breast surgery. The plastic surgeon advises on the suitable type of anaesthesia for each patient. Cuts are made in unremarkable sites in order to minimise visible scarring. Patients have three options for incision sites. Inframammary incision is made under the breast border. The one which is done under the armpit is called transaxillary incision. Per areolar incision is made around the nipple area. Before the surgery, patient and the doctor decides on type of the breast implant and the plastic surgeon decides on the location of the cuts. Layered sutures are used to close incisions. Skin adhesive or surgical tape may also be used. Incision lines will disappear over time.
Results of Breast Enlargement
Results of the boob job in Turkey can immediately be seen. Post-surgical inflammation and incision lines will disappear gradually. The patients may be satisfied with their new boobs as they recover and realise that their aim for fuller breast is accomplished. After breast enhancement surgery, the patient may need to put on surgical dressing that may include support bra or garments. Patients will be given detailed instructions about post-surgical care by plastic surgeons. Patients will be able to walk with their own strength right after boob job in Turkey.
