Breast Aaugmentation & Enlargment

The body loses its aesthetic appearance in time due to both genetic and environmental factors. Although this process can be delayed by non-surgical methods, it is inevitable. In cases where body aesthetics cannot be provided by non-surgical methods, semi-operated and operated methods are brought to the rescue of individuals. As it is known, in order to provide monolithic aesthetics of the body to individual regions, it is imperative to intervene with different techniques. Although the face, hair, butt, waist and hip area are the main intervened areas, another area that is intervened as much as these is the chest area.

Make an Appointment

Aesthetic evaluation of the chest area, more specifically, of the breasts is quite relative. Social understanding, historical process and many other factors are effective in determining whether breasts are aesthetic. Today, upright, plump and correct lateral angled breasts are considered aesthetic. Here, the operation of combining the most suitable breast version with the person’s body is called breast augmentation surgery. Although the main purpose of the operation may seem to enlarge the breasts, the main purpose is not exactly that. In addition to enlarging, it is also among the main objectives of the operation to tighten, plump and improve the angle.

About Breast Augmentation Surgery

There are aesthetic differences as well as physiological differences between the female and the male body. These aesthetic differences vary from society to society and the historical process, but it is generally accepted that the female body should look aesthetically beautiful. Breasts are the primary areas to be intervened in the process of gaining an aesthetic appearance of the female body. Since their capacity to be affected by both environmental and genetic factors is quite high, breast aesthetics disappear even when they are still in middle age. In some cases, breasts never seem aesthetic. This aesthetic invisibility affects women’s psychology, social status and lifestyle in general.

Psychological and social problems starting from the absence of breast aesthetics occupy a large place in women’s life. The way to eliminate this problem ultimately is breast augmentation surgeries. Thanks to the breast augmentation surgeries, the breasts, which are one of the most important parts of the body, are made aesthetic, it is erect and plumped.


What is Breast Augmentation?

Although breast is found in both men and women, it becomes an aesthetically necessary form only in women. Although this understanding gradually loses its effect due to the problems and physical deficiencies caused by breast cancer, breast is still of great importance in terms of aesthetics.

As it is known, the main function of the breasts is breastfeeding. Breasts play a big role in the feeding of the baby after the woman gives birth. Thanks to the milk channels it contains, it provides a healthy development for the baby. Breast augmentation surgeries are operations to enlarge and enhance the breasts without damaging the milk ducts, if not necessary.

Each geography has some unique physical features. Each individual participating in the gene pool by living for a long time in the relevant geography has these physical features to a large extent. The hips and shoulders of women in Anatolian geography are wide, their breasts are relatively small. Although they are not essentially small, they appear to be small due to the hip and shoulder effect. The second negative feature is that the breasts are very suitable for sagging. In other words, a great majority of women in our country have problems with the aesthetics of their breasts in their middle age. In addition, since the risk of developing breast cancer is quite high, breast augmentation operations are frequently performed.

Breast augmentation is not only supported by the breasts in volume. These are operations that become complicated with the combination of operations such as stretching and shaping. It is possible to increase the size of the breasts to the size of the person, and to keep them at the right angle and in a stretched manner with breast augmentation operations.

Conditions Requiring Breast Augmentation Surgery

Although there are dozens of substances added to the bottom, the disruption of breast aesthetics is sufficient for the procedure of breast augmentation operations. Direct or indirect causes that disrupt breast aesthetics are among the situations that require breast augmentation surgery. If you need to sort out the article:

With age, breasts lose their tight structure. Because of both gravity and weakening of the connective tissues, the nipples begin to sag from the thirties. Especially, more voluminous breasts sag earlier and sagging rates are higher.

Low breast volume is the main reason for surgery. Due to the genetic characteristics of the person, their breasts are small. It uses breast augmentation operations to achieve an aesthetic appearance.

Genetically, there may be developmental problems in two breasts or one of the breasts. These problems can be seen from birth as well as may occur later. As a result of developmental impairment, one breast may be larger, smaller or at different angles than the other. These appearance problems are among the main causes of surgery.

When fat is injected, hormone balance is necessary in order to maintain fat. Losing weight fast or using drugs that can disrupt hormone balance can cause breast appearance to deteriorate. If such situations cannot be prevented without surgery, breast augmentation surgeries are performed.

Breast cancer, which affects women to a large extent, is also the reason for the implementation of breast enlargement surgeries. It is the primary practice to remove the volume of the breast completely and replace it with a suitable form and volume.

Apart from all these main reasons, minor reasons can be counted. Ultimately, all causes disrupt breast aesthetics, which cannot be prevented or changed by other methods. In such cases, the only method to be used to provide the final solution is breast augmentation surgeries. Specifically, they are prosthetic implants.

Breast Augmentation & Enlargement Methods

Breast augmentation is one of the most demanding breast aesthetic operations. Since the number of factors to be considered and to be calculated is quite high, the method to be used in performing the surgery becomes important. Essentially, three methods are employed to make the breast aesthetic. These methods can be used alone or together. The main purpose is to make the breasts aesthetically suitable for the body of the person and to do this permanently.

In general, there is sagging in breasts that need enlargement. As the sagging cannot be completely resolved by increasing the volume, stretching operation is performed as standard in breast augmentation surgeries. In addition to this operation, prosthesis procedure, fat injection or filling injection are used in order to provide sufficient size. It is possible to talk about the advantages and disadvantages of all methods.

Breast Augmentation & Enlargement with Fat Injection

The main element that makes the breasts look plump in volume is the fat tissues. However, the adipose tissues in other parts of the body and the adipose tissues in the breasts differ from each other. Unlike standard fat removal and fat injection operations, the fat taken in the fat injection operations to the breast is subjected to a certain process. The more concentrated fat tissues are then injected into the appropriate and pre-planned areas of the breasts.

Breast augmentation with fat injection is extremely simple. It is preferred by many people since it does not need a surgical incision. The fact that the results obtained by the operation are permanent between one and a half to two years is an advantage for some and disadvantage for others. In general, women who want permanence are recommended to apply a prosthesis instead of fat injection.

The best advantage of the fat injection procedure is the thinning of the fat removal area. Since the fat removal area is generally waist or hip, a fuller look can be obtained with much less filling material. Today, the most commonly performed breast augmentation method after prosthesis is fat injection.

Breast Augmentation & Enlargement with Filler Injection

Filler injections refer to substances created synthetically to replace fat injections. It is possible to say that fat injection is a substitute for being used in other parts of the body as well as in the breast area.

The materials used for filling injection are injected into the breasts with the help of special injectors, just like in fat injection. Due to the fact that the substance has been specially developed for the body, no negative situation arises. In general, although there are no problems in practice, it is not preferred by doctors. In cases where prosthesis procedures are too much, fat injections are used. In cases where both methods cannot be performed for a reason, filling injections are the only option.

After the filling is injected, it should be shaped with the help of various bras. In this way, a full appearance is obtained for about two years after the operation. As of the second year, the filling material melts rapidly and the breasts is restored. The main reason why plastic surgeons prefer filling injections relatively little is that the fillers are injected into the breast.

Breast Augmentation & Enlargement with Silicone Prosthesis

Breasts are the key to making the body look aesthetic. The main method used to make the breasts permanent aesthetic is prosthetic procedure. Placed under the breast tissue, there are artificial materials that can be manufactured from various materials and various sizes and shapes. Besides being harmless to the body, they are often preferred due to the ease of the procedure.

Prostheses have a great advantage over other breast augmentation methods. When it is evaluated in terms of permanence, it is possible to keep the breast aesthetically for about two years, while it is possible for the breast to remain aesthetic for about twenty years without the slightest deterioration due to the prosthesis.

The most basic solution of any condition that may impair breast aesthetics is prosthetic procedure. Since the prostheses can be manufactured in different shapes and models, they are responsive to any kind of request. They can be used in cases where the results obtained with non-surgical methods are inadequate, such as developmental problems in two or one of the breasts due to some genetic or environmental factors, breasts that are smaller than desired, no symmetry between the two breasts.

Breast augmentation operations also include breast aesthetic operations. Although it is generally performed for aesthetic purposes, it can also be used to prevent breast cancer and to eliminate the negative consequences of breast cancer. The use of prosthesis is also very common in the correction of the social life of the person by eliminating the consequences related to a serious disease.

It is possible to divide the prostheses in terms of shape, content and surface structure. The ideal prosthesis is chosen according to the person’s body features, wishes and some other variables. Every type of prosthesis has some advantages and disadvantages, but with the right application, maximum benefits are obtained from all types of prostheses.

Shape Prosthetics

The prostheses, which are differentiated in terms of shape, have shape differences, as the name implies, independent of all other features. It is basically divided into two, but it is possible to play between these two forms according to the wishes and body characteristics of the person. When evaluated according to the most extreme points, it is possible to distinguish between anatomical prosthesis and round prosthesis. Because the anatomical prosthesis looks like a drop shape, it can also be called a drop prosthesis. The two forms have their advantages and disadvantages both in terms of price and execution. Although the form with the drop form seems more aesthetically pleasing, prostheses with round form are also preferred in some cases.

If the purpose is to inflate the breast in the direction of a natural appearance, make it full and artificially erect it, the type of prosthesis to be used is round. If aesthetic operation is performed with the aim of a natural appearance, a drop prosthesis should be preferred. The diameter of the drop-shaped prostheses on the vertical axis is lower than the diameter on the horizontal axis. This enables the prosthesis to expand when moving from top to bottom. Also, the height is different in different parts of the prosthesis.

Content Prosthetics

The material from which the prosthesis is made is also important. It is also possible to diversify the prostheses according to the materials from which they are manufactured. When we examine regardless of shape and surface structure, it is possible to divide the prostheses into silicone prostheses and physiological serum containing prostheses. Neither material has any harm to the body. However, a physiological serum-containing prosthesis is offered as a good alternative for patients who cannot rely on silicone material.

The material quality and reliability of silicone based prostheses produced from FDA approved material is quite high. It is also possible to maintain the form of the first day for many years. Likewise, the reliability of physiological serum prostheses, which are a saline liquid, is high. While the patient’s wishes are effective in the selection phase, doctor’s recommendations can also change the selection.

When evaluated functionally, there are very small differences between the two types of prostheses, these differences can be ignored. Long-term results also show that the two types of serum do not have a noticeable difference. Also, regardless of the material that forms the contents of the prosthesis, the outer layer surrounding the content is absolutely silicone. In other words, it is possible to find some silicone even in prostheses that do not contain silicone.

Prostheses for Surface Structure

After the prostheses have been placed under the breast, a certain time must pass before they can adapt to the area. The surface structure of the prostheses is one of the factors that are effective in shortening and extending this period. Prostheses, which can be attached to the area where they are placed more easily, greatly shorten the healing time. When evaluated independently of all other features, it is possible to divide the prostheses into two in terms of surface shapes.

The first and more preferred of these are prostheses with a rough surface. These prostheses are easily attached to the area where they are placed. They are also quite indifferent to external influences. Thanks to these features, it is easier to overcome traumas caused by carelessness. However, in some cases it is also possible to select flat-surface prostheses instead of prostheses with a lumpy surface. As a result of the patient’s requests and the doctor’s recommendations, this selection process takes place.

Before Breast Augmentation Surgery

Our country is well developed in all aesthetic surgery branches. Many patients from abroad come to our country for aesthetic surgery operations by considering the price advantage. Breast augmentation surgeries are the most common surgeries. When evaluated in general, it is possible to say that one of the biggest shares in all surgeries is breast augmentation surgery. As such, it is possible to say that doctors have gained a lot of experience.

When evaluated in terms of risks, complications and some other negative conditions, we can say that breast augmentation operations have very little risk. Although it is very unlikely that a negative situation will occur during and after the operation, a serious preparation process is performed before breast augmentation operations. This process is both for the recognition of the patient’s body and for the reduction of risks. In the pre-operative process, things such as sitting the patient’s wishes, evaluating the possibilities and determining the method are handled. It is precisely in the period before the surgery that the patient begins to live in the light of recommendations that will improve the quality of life.

Patient’s History

When the patient visits the doctor for aesthetic surgery, his medical history should be taken to be included in the physical examination. The operations and diseases that the patient had until that day are learned. Methods used for the treatment of these diseases, drugs used and all other methods are evaluated.

The body is fully recognized by analyzing the patient’s daily life, his daily life troubles and chronic conditions. Taking a patient’s history, anticipating the risks that may develop during the surgical operation, it is essential to check the suitability of the patient in the light of the information received. Even though the operation is simple and short, investigation of medical history is still necessary.

Evaluation of Medicines Used

When people visit an aesthetic surgeon with the request of prosthetic surgery, the medical history is taken and evaluation of the drugs used after the physical examination is completed. Medications are used in the treatment of various acute diseases, allergic reactions or chronic diseases. In addition to fulfilling the aims of taking the medicines, they can also influence some unexpected functions. Although this closed effect that they exert in normal living conditions can be ignored, such a thing is not possible before the operation. Especially in operations where an incision is made, every medication taken is examined seriously in order to eliminate the risk of bleeding. Whether the medication is being taken to regulate hormones or to relieve pain, it must be reported to the doctor. After detecting the drugs taken, the dosage is regulated. In extreme cases, the medications taken before and after the operation are completely discontinued. After the operation, until the results of the operation are fully seated, the use of medications is prohibited until the risks are completely eliminated. Pain medications that make the blood more fluid are at the top of these drugs.

Smoking and Alcohol Use

Smoking, as well as alcohol, causes serious harm to the body. Besides damaging the inner parts of the body, they directly damage the skin and tissues. It is obligatory to discontinue these two harmful substances before the operation. In particular, smokers should quit smoking about a month before the operation. Consuming alcohol should not exceed one glass a day.

Smoking affects the respiratory functions and prevents enough oxygen to go to the cells. Skin tissues and connective tissues that do not reach quality oxygen cause aesthetic losses throughout the body, especially the face area. Alcohol also has a similar effect by increasing or decreasing blood sugar. If not discontinued, it causes the skin to wear out.

Regulation of Nutritional Habits

The main structures that make them look full and upright are the adipose tissues. Breasts are the primary areas where calories in the body are stored. There is excessive growth of the breasts as a result of irregular and excessive nutrition. In breast augmentation surgeries, there is a difference as much as the mountains between the intended growth and the growth achieved in this way. Breasts that grow with overfeeding are generally prone to sagging. It is also possible to talk about an amorphous growth.

After visiting the doctor for breast plastic surgery and continuing the process, before the operation, you need to control your nutrition. It is necessary to check the presence of adipose tissues throughout the body, especially the breast tissue. In order to keep it as stable as possible (excessive reduction of adipose tissue is also dangerous in the period prior to the operation, because planning of the operation is based on the presence of existing adipose tissues) enough calories should be taken. Nutritional habits that may cause excessive increase or decrease in adipose tissues should be avoided. It will be beneficial to eat in a way to regulate blood sugar. Also, cutting sugar will be very useful at this stage.

Final Preparations Before Breast Augmentation Surgery

Following the doctor’s advice regarding your daily life until the day of surgery is sufficient to guarantee the results of the operation. However, despite all the recommendations, there are some preparations that need to be made just before the operation. The basis for these preparations is the psychological state.

Although the operation is simple and short, people can come under psychological pressure by considering the process after the operation. In this process, all necessary preparations should be made to make the operation day comfortable. It should be planned in detail from the entrance to the hospital to the discharge. The materials to be taken with you, the person or people who will be with you must be determined. In other words, any kind of psychological relief should be included in this preparation process. Apart from this, there is no physical preparation that needs to be done just before the operation. It will be beneficial to lie down with a small backpack to be prepared from materials that may be urgently needed.

After Breast Augmentation Surgery

The operation is quite simple. Since the complications and risks that may arise are limited, the process after the operation becomes important. Both the day of surgery and the moment of surgery and the process of being discharged immediately after the operation is very important. The most intense effects of the surgery are experienced in this time period. Although the operation varies depending on the technique it is performed, some unusual situations may occur with some usual effects. What will happen depends on the condition of the patient.

It is possible to divide the process after the operation into three. On the day of the operation, the healing process that starts from the day of operation and continues until three days later, and the normalization process that starts from the third day and continues until the second month, patient’s life returns to normal day by day.

Operation Day

Breast augmentation surgeries take about an hour. After the operation is completed, the patient is rested for three hours and discharged. This is how the process works when there are no complications. Since the patient is discharged on the same day, the surgeries performed are usually performed before noon. For this reason, hospitalization is made one day before the operation day or very early in the morning.

Although it is simple, it is useful to keep in mind that it is a serious operation before in order to reduce the possible risks. Any kind of nutrition that may affect blood values should be stopped completely from the evening before the operation. In addition, according to the doctor’s advice, no food should be consumed during the day of the operation.

After the patient’s hospitalization, various tests are done. These tests are done in order to find out if there are any illnesses that may be a contraindication to the operation that have been overlooked in the preparation process before the operation or to check the presence of infectious diseases. After the tests pass smoothly, the patient is taken to the operating room with the anesthesiologist. Necessary drawings are made in the breast area and the patient is sedated. Afterwards, the patient is put to sleep and the operation phase is started.

After the operation, the patient is examined by the doctor who performed the operation. The results of the operation and the patient’s condition are evaluated. The patient can stand up after resting on the backside for about three hours. In addition, there is no problem in eating and walking after completing this rest period. The patient is ready to be discharged in the afternoon due to the operation being carried out in the early hours. If there is no risk of complications, the patient is discharged. If the patient does not want or there is a risk of complications, the patient can be hospitalized overnight.


The techniques performed during the operation are quite simple. In addition, no pain is felt due to the operation being performed under the influence of anesthesia. Drugs given according to the calculation of the anesthesiologist act for about an hour. Other pain relievers may be given depending on the situation so that the patient does not feel any pain after the operation is completed.

Very rarely, due to the prostheses placed under the muscle tissue, pain can be observed with the movement of the muscles, but this pain is quite mildly dosed. With the movement of the muscles ceased, the pain disappears. This pain seen during the first three days disappears completely from the third day.


It is obligatory to continue the nutritional habits initiated during the operation preparation process. The patient can eat immediately after the three-hour rest period after the completion of the operation, but the meal should be light. Although it is a simple operation, the body is tired after breast augmentation operations. In order not to increase the effects of this fatigue, light and fat-free meals should be consumed as much as possible. This fasting should be continued for a day or two, then normal diet can be started.


Surveillance Period

Breast augmentation surgery is quite simple, as long as it is done with standard procedures. In general, the duration does not exceed one hour. Many plastic surgeons in our country also plan surgery to discharge their patients on the same day. Although it is a simple operation, keeping the patient under observation for a while after the operation is better as assessment of risks is essential. There is an observation period of approximately three hours after breast augmentation surgery. Before the observation period begins, an examination is carried out by the doctor who performed the operation. Then the patient is connected to various devices and checked for three hours. If no problem is observed at the end of the three-hour surveillance period, the patient is discharged.

Psychological Status

The main expectation of patients entering the breast augmentation operation is the enhancement of the aesthetic image. Since non-aesthetic breasts create a serious pressure on the psychological state of individuals, the expectations of the patients undergoing the operation are generally higher. It is possible to say that their psychological condition is bad. Although this negative situation is largely eliminated with the consultations made before the operation, there is always a certain level of pressure against the possibility of problems in the operation.

After the operation is completed, psychological pressure may continue due to the absence of the breast area, the presence of edema and redness. This pressure continues until the end of the first week, when the patient can obtain the most realistic view of the results of the operation. When the patient sees her breasts, she quickly regulates her psychological state and shifts to the positive area.

Drug Use

Although the probability of the patient to feel pain in the process after the operation is quite small, it is not zero. There is a possibility that prostheses placed under the muscle tissues may cause unusual pain with muscle movements. Although these pains disappear with cessation of muscle movements, drug use is recommended as a precaution.

In order to prevent such adversities that may occur after the operation, special painkillers are prescribed that can relieve pain in muscle tissues. Their individual use is more effective than their regular use. They provide relief if the pain starts to increase or when it occurs unexpectedly. In addition, the drugs that are discontinued before the operation or whose dosage is changed are evaluated again after the operation. If it does not compromise the results of the operation or the patient’s body functions, the use of the relevant drugs can be resumed.

Accompanying and Hospital Stay Duration

The operation is very simple, allowing patients to be discharged during the day. One in every thousand patients is hospitalized for a day. Some patients want to stay in the hospital for another day due to psychological pressures, although the operation was successful.

In order to prevent such situations, it is beneficial for the patient to be accompanied by someone. During the three-hour inpatient rest period after the operation, this companion will be very useful in meeting the patient’s wishes. In addition, if a one-day hospitalization is made, the companion will still be very useful. In general, it would be reasonable to accompany a loved one to make the patient psychologically stable.

Risks, Complications and Side Effects

As with any surgery, there are adverse conditions that may occur in breast augmentation surgery. While some of these negative situations have a high probability, others have very small percentages. The preparation process before the operation is very effective in preventing any negative situations that may arise. Examinations, lifestyle changes, doctor selection and prosthesis selection are purely to eliminate these risks.

After the operation, depending on the way the operation is performed, it is ninety percent probable that bleeding, redness, scarring and edema occur. However, all this is temporary. Infection, loss of sensation, deformations and sagging are undesirable but potentially unfavorable situations. By paying maximum attention to the recommendations after the operation, all of these negative situations can be prevented to a great extent.

Bleeding, Redness, Edema and Surgery Scar

In order for the prosthesis to be placed in the area under the breast, incisions must be made. There are four areas that can be cut as standard. Each area has its own positive or negative conditions. The operation can be completed with a minimum incision, by performing an operation from the region most suitable for the patient’s condition. The prosthesis is placed under the breast after the cuts to be made from the armpit, nipple, navel and under breast areas. Opened incisions are sutured with special stitches, but there is a risk of bleeding if a reverse movement is performed. This risk arises due to bursting stitches or stitches that are not well disposed.

With a small intervention, bleeding can be eliminated. Although it is generally seen as a minor complication, if the bleeding does not stop, a doctor should be consulted. Also, redness may occur in areas close to the seam areas. If the rash is in the areas where the prosthesis is placed, a doctor should be consulted due to the risk of allergies.

Edema formation is definitely observed after the operation. Edema formed is located between the prosthesis and breast tissue. Generally, it decreases after a period of three days and change their density according to the type of surface of the prosthesis used. Edema can make the breasts look fuller than they are. It may take up to a week due to edema to fully understand the exact results of the breast prosthesis. Regardless of the region entered for insertion of the prosthesis, the scar remains. If the method used is endoscopic, this trace is quite small and may also be invisible depending on the region affected. The marks on the armpit and under breast areas are largely invisible. The nipple and navel area are more visible. All these scars are eliminated with the scar removal operation performed at the end of the second or third week.


The body’s immune system is constantly fighting with foreign substances that can enter the body. The main element that disrupts this struggle is the weakening of the immune system due to various reasons or cracks in the body’s defensive wall. The incisions made for breast augmentation are like large cracks in the body’s defensive wall. After the operation, maximum care must be taken for the hygiene of the areas where the incision is made until the stitches are removed. In cases where attention is not paid to the region or regions, hygiene is not observed, various bacteria can settle in these areas and cause infection.

Although the infection appears to be a local problem, it can present serious problems if left untreated. These problems can also endanger the results of the operation. Although the treatment of the infection is easy and is made with antibiotics, it is very important to make efforts to avoid getting infected.

Loss of Sense

No nerve tissue is interfered during the breast prosthesis placement procedure. It is possible to encounter temporary loss of sensation in general due to some psychological reasons or minor errors during the operation. These loss of sensation, usually seen in the muscles of the chest area, is temporary. This loss of sensation is experienced due to the mistakes made during the implantation of breast prostheses placed under the muscle. In addition, loss of sensation in the process immediately after the operation occurs due to anesthesia drugs.

In general, though loss of sensation is an undesirable side effect, it is  not considered very important because it disappears after the intervention. Patients who experience loss of sensation after breast prosthesis operations correspond to a very small percentage.


After the patient visits an aesthetic surgeon, examinations are performed. The patient’s body is examined, requests are received. Operation is planned with the best possible method within the current conditions. Body anatomy, features of the prosthesis and any problems that may arise during the operation are taken into account while planning the operation. As a result of all this, how and when to place the prosthesis is determined. Rarely, prostheses placed due to errors in the planning or implementation of the operation cannot be integrated into the region where they are placed. For this reason, the prosthesis slips, and the aesthetic of the breast area is noticeably distorted from the outside due to the sliding prosthesis.

The probability of sagging after breast augmentation operations is very low. In cases where it occurs, it is possible to intervene quickly after a few days of waiting.

Things to pay attention to

There are some things that the patient should pay attention to for the operation to be successful and for the results to be maintained after the patient is discharged. Thanks to the utmost attention to the issues, the prosthesis will remain in the ideal position and will integrate with the breast within its position. It is possible to divide the postoperative process into three. Matters needing attention are also in these three periods. The first period is the time period that starts from the completion of the operation and continues until the third day, which is very important. The second period is between the third day and the second week. The second week to the second month constitutes the third period.

The relevant recommendations both prevent the extreme deterioration of the results of the operation and aim to keep the patient’s comfort at the maximum level. Since the breast augmentation operations are quite simple operations, the process after the operation is also very comfortable. In order not to disturb this comfort, it is essential to pay utmost attention to the points that need attention.

Physical Activity and Sports

Although prostheses are independent of many body structures, they are sensitive to external trauma. Breast augmentation surgery is simple, but in order to provide maximum benefit, the process after the operation must be carried out very carefully. It is possible for the patient to stand up and get things done about three hours after the completion of the operation. After a day’s rest at home, the patient can return to light, desk work.

Starting from the third day (the recommended seventh day), he can start very light sports. It is necessary to avoid movements that will force the upper muscle group. It can increase the severity of sports from the second week. From the second month on, the patient can switch to heavier sports. The main point that the patient should pay attention to while performing all these physical activities is to avoid trauma to the chest area.

Sauna, Solarium, Steam Bath, Turkish Bath

Sauna, steam bath and Turkish bath are public environments. They are also very prone to bacteria, even if they are personal. It will be better not to be in such environments after an operation with a surgical incision such as breast augmentation. In addition, it should be avoided from things that may affect both the prosthesis and breast tissue, depending on the nature of the prosthesis. Generally, it is recommended to stay away from sauna, solarium, steam bath and baths for two months after the operation.

Especially, the solarium that will expose the breast area to ultraviolet light should be avoided. In other environments, if it offers a personal space and provides maximum hygiene, it can be entered without any problems after removing the stitches.


Patients should not shower for three days after the operation is completed. If taking a shower is indispensable, the upper and lower breast area should be washed separately, direct water contact to the chest area should be avoided. As of the third day, there is no problem in taking a shower. Thanks to the protective tape that protects the area where the prosthesis is placed, the water contact to the area is reset. It is necessary to avoid excessive heat or extreme cold while taking a shower. Taking a shower with warm water is sufficient to protect the body from excessive extremes.

Travel and Extreme Sun Exposure

Breast augmentation operations are quite easy operations if they are not combined with other surgeries. The patient, who was discharged on the first day, can return to his social life without any problems from the third day. He needs to rest at home until the third day. This rest is a critical time for both overcoming the fatigue of the operation and eliminating the psychological effects. After the third day, the patient does not have any problem in traveling, but the patient should refrain from traveling until the stitches are removed. Pressure changes may cause the stitches to burst and the risk of bleeding. There are no restrictions on road or sea travel.

Sleeping Position

For the prosthesis to be placed on the breasts, an incision can be made from four areas. Depending on the patient’s condition, wishes and type of prosthesis, the incision site is selected. In general, an incision is made from the nipple, armpit, navel and nipple areas. Due to the fact that all the opened areas coincide with the front of the body, attention should be paid to the sleeping position. It is important not to put all the weight of the body forward until the stitches are removed. The sleeping position has no effect on the shape of the prostheses but any trauma should be avoided. All suggestions for sleeping position are for the intactness of the stitches.

Bra Use

After the prosthesis has been placed, it must be kept firmly in the area. Corsets can be used to complete the integration phase in a healthy way, but sports bras are used today. After the patient leaves the operation, the sports bra is worn. This bra also keeps the prosthesis placed in the chest area at an appropriate angle thanks to its oppressive structure. Athlete’s bras are preferred, which provide a tight look instead of loose clothing or loose bras in the two-week period until the completion of the integration phase.

Depending on the examination after the second week, the use of sports bras can be continued for another week or the selection of bras can be released.


Since one of the main purposes of the operation is to provide a more desirable appearance, the number of stitches made in breast augmentation surgeries is very low. Since some prosthesis procedures are performed with a completely closed surgery method, more than three to five stitches are not removed. Since the sutured stitches are removed from the idle parts of the body, there is no visible scar after the operation.

The number of stitches made even in the largest breast augmentation does not exceed fifteen. As such, it is possible to say that the comfort of the patient is at maximum. Sutures made during surgery do not need any dressings. The protective tape covering the stitches eliminates the need for dressing. With this tape, which is usually removed on the tenth day, the stitches disappear by themselves.

Sexual Intercourse

After the operation, no intervention will require being sexually abstinent, but it is useful to avoid sexual intercourse for up to two weeks after the operation, considering the connection between the breasts and sexual activity. This benefit is related to keeping the nipples away from impacts rather than maintaining health. In addition, maintaining the effort spent during sexual activity will be useful for relieving the fatigue after the operation. Finally, sexual activity can be postponed in order to protect the upper muscle group, which may have difficulty during sexual activity. However, all these adjoining recommendations are not mandatory. You can clarify this by talking to your doctor about your special situation.

Post-Surgery Recovery Process

After the operation, no extreme mistakes are made and if the doctor’s recommendations are strictly followed, the healing process is quite comfortable and the recovery time is just as short. Interventions with breast augmentation surgeries are effective although they are quite small. The low number of stitches, the discharge of the patient immediately and the return of the patient to his social life takes several days, which proves how short the recovery period is.

The temporal condition of recovery time after the operation may vary from patient to patient. Patients whose body is more vigorous can recover completely from the third week, while some older patients are considered to have recovered from the fifth week. The elements such as return to social life, return to work, return to sports and travel change completely for the patient. In general, you could return to your social life on the second day, perform light work on the third day, exercise on the seventh day, and return to heavy work and strenuous sports in the second month.

Regular Doctor Checkups

The easier the breast augmentation surgery, the more difficult it is to maintain the results of the operation after the operation. This difficulty stems from sensitivity. Even the tiniest intervention entails accurate calculations, as the steepness or angle of the breast may be impaired in the case of any inaccuracies. The position and volume of the prosthesis can also change due to various errors.

Doctor checkups are carried out continuously from the first results after the operation to the six-month long-term results. These checkups continue with decreasing frequency and are terminated by the sixth month. The first checkup takes place immediately after surgery. The second check is at the end of the first week and the third check is at the end of the first month. Then, depending on the situation, the operation is concluded by making two or three more checkups.
