Breast Implants and Incision in Breast Augmentation

The special silicone implants that we use during breast augmentation, have the shape and feel of real. Their composition varies, as you can choose between a silicone case that also contains silicone gel, or a silicone case that contains saline. In addition to the feel of an insert, shape also plays an important role. There are implants that are round but also in the shape of tears. Most plastics prefer round ones, as they do not change the shape of the breast in case of small movement. They also look more natural in an upright position but also in a horizontal position.

The implant can be placed above or below the pectoralis muscle. If placed under the muscle, the pain and swelling postoperatively are more intense. The insertion incision is made in such a way that it is not visible after breast augmentation. The three areas where the incision is made are below the breast (sub-incision), around the nipple or in the armpit (axillary incision). After discussion with the doctor and based on the particularities of your body, the appropriate incision point will be selected.

Who is Breast Augmentation for?

Do you think that your breasts are too small in proportion to the rest of your body? Do you feel uncomfortable when wearing an open neckline, swimsuit or anything that leaves your chest exposed? Do you see a big difference in the size of your two breasts? If the answer to the previous questions is yes, then you are a good candidate for breast augmentation!

Another important use of silicone implants is reconstructive surgery which involves women who have had a mastectomy due to breast cancer. Breast augmentation can also be done in cases where there is a significant reduction of the breast which is due to great weight loss or childbirth. The last operation can be combined with a breast lift to achieve a perfect result.


The size of the silicone implants play a very important role in the outcome in terms of breast augmentation. So, it is important to inform the plastic surgeon and discuss with him your expectations and the size you want.

The choice of the final size should result from the combination of your desire and the objective opinion of your doctor. This will ensure that your breasts have a harmonious effect and tie in with the rest of the body.

Before Surgery

After you decide to have breast augmentation surgery, it is important to tell your doctor about your medical history. That is, the plastic surgeon must know if you have problems with vital organs such as lungs, heart or liver, etc. Also, if you suffer from diabetes, hypertension, if you are a smoker, if there is a history of thrombophlebitis or if you are taking medication and if so, which.

You will also be asked if you are a smoker to quit smoking for at least six weeks before surgery. This will greatly help the recovery. You should avoid taking anti-inflammatory drugs and aspirin, as they increase the chances of bleeding during surgery. It is important to hydrate properly before and after surgery for best results.

The Surgery

Before the breast augmentation begins, all the necessary laboratory tests will be performed to make the procedure safe and to know any problem.

Breast augmentation surgery with silicone implants is performed after general anesthesia. The duration of the operation lasts about 1.5 hours, while the overnight stay in the clinic is not considered necessary. The results of the operation are immediately visible, while the final result takes a few weeks. Women who undergo breast augmentation for aesthetic reasons are able to breastfeed and conceive without any problems. The bandages that are placed are removed until the third day after the operation. The sutures are absorbed by the body. You need to wear a sports bra for breast support for about a month. You can return to work in the first week. If your job requires you to lift weights or move vigorously, then you will be able to work again in 15 days to a month. you can do intense exercise like exercise after the month.

FAQ about Breast Augmentation

1Can I do breast augmentation with fat transfer instead of implants?
In order to increase the size of the breasts by placing fat, it is necessary to transfer the fat from another part of the same patient. So, if another part of your body needs liposuction, we utilize this fat by transferring it to the breasts. This technique is used on average in 10% of breast prosthesis cases.
2Which implants have the most natural feeling in the touch but also in the face?
Silicone implants are the ones that have the softest feel. On the face are also the ones that are closer to reality, but this always has to do with the size that the patient chooses. A harmonious result with ideal proportions always looks more natural!
3How long does it take for a patient to fully recover after breast augmentation?
Most cases have fully recovered on average in the sixth week after surgery. But the patient feels perfectly well after the end of the first week. Your body-based plastic surgeon will evaluate your case and give you a personal recovery schedule.
4I have heard that breast augmentation surgery is a painful procedure. Is true;
It is true that the pain is intense in the first days after the operation. However, special painkillers will be given based on your needs. The pain will subside soon and the result will justify you! With an experienced plastic surgeon you have nothing to fear!
5Is there a suitable age for breast augmentation?
It is universally recommended for women over the age of 18 to add saline implants. For silicone implants the youngest age is 22 years.
6Is it possible for the size of the implants to look smaller than they were at the beginning?
It is common, for the first time after the operation, for the implants to be pressed and to be higher than their normal position. This is because the breast tissues that hold them in place are tight, which will change over time. In the process, they will relax and the implant will take its rightful place.
7Why should I not raise my hands the first time after surgery?
For the first two weeks after breast augmentation, you should avoid lifts. This way you will avoid the possibility of bleeding and any movement of the implants.
