Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure in which silicone implants are used to create a fuller and more shaped breast size and appearance.
Designed to enlarge a woman’s breasts, this operation helps make the breasts more proportional to the rest of the body.
Breasts that have lost their fullness or shape due to weight loss, pregnancy, breastfeeding or age can also be enlarged and reshaped with breast augmentation surgery. Also for reconstructive purposes in patients who have had a mastectomy or have a congenital breast deformity.
There are actually a few methods in breast augmentation, but the healthiest, the best, the longest method you can use is the enlargement of the breast with silicone.
Why is it healthy?
Because breast tissue is not touched. It is either placed under the breast tissue or under the muscle. What we call muscle is the pectoral muscle developed by athletes . Therefore, there is no damage to the breast tissue, breastfeeding function and sensation are not affected. It can be the size you want.
But generally, it is preferred that it is suitable for the person’s height shoulder body structure and that does not overflow to his / her chest.
Young people apply more
In breast augmentation applications, there are mostly women who are 18-19 years old, who have completed their development but have not developed breast tissue. There is no pathological health problem, but there is someone in the family with small breasts.
Other applications are usually after the first birth. In those women with small breasts, the breasts sag more after childbirth, the breast tissue inside is kind of creeping.
How is breast augmentation done?
For the appropriate silicone determination, the distance between the nipple and the shoulder is measured first. There should be no sagging in the chest. This distance is generally 16-17 cm, if taller it can be 18-19. If it is more than 19 cm, it means the chest is sagging. In this case, breast lift is required.
Silicone can also be attached with it. Then, the sagging rate of the breast tissue under the breast pattern, skin thickness and muscle thickness are checked. The needs and desires of the woman are listened to. Rib cage and shoulder structure are also very important.
As a result, the doctor and the patient decide on the silicone size together
Of course, the drop or round form decision is made together.
Drop silicone is recommended for women who are thinner, especially those who prefer it, and also for women who have a long shoulder to nipple. Round silicone is preferred for those who want a more flamboyant breast form.
As a region, more submuscular is preferred. So the top of the silicone will not be so obvious, it will look more natural and the silicone will stay higher.
How long do silicones last?
The lifetime of silicones is very curious. It used to be called you change it every 8 to 10 years. Now silicon producing companies say it can be used for a lifetime as long as there is no problem and they give a guarantee. If you ask what kind of problem may arise, a problem may be seen in the capsule around the silicone during ultrasound or MRI.
Normally, when the silicone is placed, a capsule is formed around it. If the capsule is solid and there is no problem with the silicone, you can use it for a lifetime. The same knee prostheses other wearable as implants applies. In other words, as long as there is no problem, as long as the material does not age, people can use their prostheses .
