Today, breast surgery is a surgical procedure performed for both aesthetic and health reasons. It is a healthy and successful solution for breasts that have not completed their development, have post-pregnancy deformities, are asymmetrical, cause back pain due to their size, or are not satisfied with the patient's appearance.
Breast augmentation is the most popular among breast augmentation surgeries. It is used for underdeveloped breasts that have remained small according to body size and structure or that have shrunk after pregnancy and breastfeeding. Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure that increases breast size and breast volume by placing a natural material called a prosthesis or implant, mainly made of silicone, under the breast tissue. These implants are inserted through the nipple, inframammary fold, armpit incisions or navel. There are 2 types of implants in different sizes, round and teardrop. The shape of the prosthesis to be used is determined in consultation with the doctor, taking into account the breast and breast structure, height, weight and body measurements according to the patient's wishes.
A normal breast augmentation operation takes about 1.5 to 2 hours.
The implant chosen in breast augmentation is placed into the breast either from the inframammary fold, nipple, armpit or navel.
The recovery period after breast augmentation surgery takes an average of 2-3 weeks, depending on the patient's recovery rate.
Since the breast augmentation operation is performed under general anesthesia, the patient does not feel any pain during the operation. If you do wrong movements after the surgery, slight pain may occur. In this case, mild painkillers can be consumed.
There are two types of breast augmentation implants: saline implants and silicone implants. The only difference between these two implants is the filling. As the name suggests, the silicone implant consists of a silicone filling inside. Today, silicone implants are more preferred because they look more natural, have less chance of tearing, feel more natural and can be placed under the mammary glands.
There are 2 types of silicone implants: round and teardrop. Round implants are spherical and regular. Drop-shaped implants, on the other hand, have a fuller lower part and a flattened upper part. Due to its shape, it can be said that the round implant fills the décolleté area more. Teardrop implants are preferred by patients who want to achieve a more natural appearance with a shape that is more compatible with the breast structure.
Of course, the patient can choose the implant shape himself. However, if the doctor recommends a different variant according to the breast structure, sagging and condition, the doctor's advice should be followed. In this case, it is recommended to rely on the experience and diagnosis of the medical examination and leave the job to the specialist.
In this context, the patient's request as well as the doctor's recommendation are also decisive. The size of the selected implant should be compatible with the patient's body structure and dimensions. The shape should be chosen according to the doctor's advice, according to the breast structure and deformation status, and again according to the wishes of the person.
Since the surgery does not involve any interference with the mammary glands and milk ducts and the implant is placed under the breast tissue or muscle without touching, there is no obstacle to breastfeeding with breast implants.
Since the implants used in the surgery are silicone-based, there is no risk of damage or side effects. These implants are approved by the World Health Organization.
For the durability of silicone implants, it is very important to follow the postoperative care and doctor's instructions. With proper care, the service life of the silicone can be estimated at an average of 20 years.
It is of course possible to replace the implant. The patient's ideal may change over time, so the previously used implant can be replaced with a larger or smaller one, which can be tightened or wrinkled.
Most breast augmentation surgeries are performed under general anesthesia. According to the patient's request, it can also be performed with sedation technique and local anesthesia.
The answer to this question depends on the patient's work. If the patient has office work, the rest period is about one week. In physically heavy work, the time is longer.
In breast augmentation, the incisions are usually in invisible places. If scars appear during the healing process, they will disappear over time.
Breast reduction surgery is performed to correct problems such as excessive sweating due to excessively large breasts, skin rashes, back pain, neck pain, optical complaints such as numbness in the arms, sagging or change in appearance. It is a surgical procedure in which excess skin and fat tissue are removed to create a more aesthetic appearance.
Breast reduction takes an average of 2.5 – 4 hours.
During breast reduction, excess skin and adipose tissue are removed. Depending on the patient's suitability, this procedure is performed using a T-cut or Lollipop incision.
In order to improve the patient's quality of life, many breast reduction procedures are performed for aesthetic purposes. Breasts that are disproportionately large for their body structure and height may cause back, neck and arm pain, difficulty in breathing or numbness in the hands. Due to their volume, weakness can occur and can cause diseases such as rash, eczema, fungus. All these problems can be eliminated with breast reduction surgery.
One night after the procedure, the patient stays in the hospital for observation and can be discharged the next day.
4 hours after the procedure, the patient is allowed to get up and eat again. The healing process varies from patient to patient. After the procedure, the patient takes antibiotics and painkillers recommended by the doctor for a week. The dressing will be changed twice in the first week and a soft-support bra should be worn for eight weeks. After the second dressing change, the patient can return to his daily life cautiously. Bruises and edema in the operation area decrease after 2-3 weeks.
In addition to the technique used in the surgery, the skin type and sensitivity of the patient also play a role in the scar.
Since the procedure is performed under general anesthesia, no pain is felt during the procedure. Post-procedure pain varies from patient to patient and passes quickly thanks to the painkillers given by the doctor.
One week after the procedure, the patient should rest and then she can return to work.
If, after the procedure, the patient does not follow the doctor's instructions, does not pay attention to the diet and excessive weight gain, the breast may also grow back during pregnancy.
Patients under the age of 18 are not suitable for breast reduction surgery. There is no upper age limit for breast reduction surgery, there is no obstacle to the procedure as long as the patient's health condition allows.
According to studies, removing excess tissue from the breast reduces the risk of cancer and therefore is not a cause of cancer.
Since breast reduction surgery does not require any intervention to the mammary glands or breast tissue, there are no restrictions on breastfeeding. You can breastfeed as usual after breast reduction surgery.
If the breasts have not yet reached the desired shape after the first surgery, a second breast reduction surgery can be performed. There should be a period of at least one year between two operations.

Turkey is the starting point for patients from all countries of the world for breast reduction and other plastic surgeries. Istanbul is among the most popular cities with its world-famous hospitals, doctors abroad and successful results. Coupled with affordable prices, Turkey is gaining immense popularity when it comes to breast reduction.
Breast lift is a surgical procedure for restoring sagging and deformed breasts due to age, pregnancy or weight gain.
Mini stretching is performed in patients with less sagging and deformity, and full stretching is performed in patients with more sagging and deformity. In mini stretching, an incision is made from the outside of the purple circles around the nipple, which we define as the areola, and excess tissue is removed. The areola and nipple are shifted 1-2 cm to the most appropriate place for the volume and condition of the breast. In patients with more severe breast sagging, an inverted T-shaped incision is made to remove excess tissue and the areola and nipple are displaced 8 cm or more. The process takes an average of 2 hours.
The first night after breast lift, the patient stays in the clinic for observation. On the recommendation of the doctor, the patient should keep arm movements to a minimum for an average of one week after the operation. Edema and bruises heal in 5-10 days. During this procedure, a soft and non-wired bra recommended by the doctor is worn for 6 weeks.
Since arm movements should be restricted after breast lift, approximately one week of rest period is recommended. Shocks and vibrations should be avoided. After a week, the patient can return to work.
You should not do any sports for the first two weeks after the procedure, then you can start light sports. Sports with a lot of arm movements should be avoided for now. 5 weeks after the procedure, the patient can continue to exercise as usual.
About 6 months after the operation, the breast took its final shape. Shocks and vibrations should be avoided during this time.
Yes, there is no obstacle to breastfeeding as no intervention is made to the mammary glands and breast tissue during the operation.
Breast augmentation or reduction is possible during a breast lift. If the breasts to be enlarged or reduced are saggy and deformed, this will be recommended by your treating doctor during the consultation.
Scar formation after breast lift depends on the patient's skin sensitivity, habits and the technique used. If the person's skin is sensitive and the patient smokes, a slight scar may remain. However, this scar does not spoil the new general appearance of the breast.
Breast lift prices vary from clinic to clinic. If an augmentation or reduction is performed at the same time as a breast lift, the costs must be evaluated differently. During the examination, the patient will be informed about the costs incurred by the doctor. Please contact us for detailed information and price requests.
