Are you unhappy with the shape of your breasts? If yes, then it is time for breast augmentation surgery.
Breast augmentation surgery helps you achieve a fuller breast size and a more aesthetically appealing breast shape. The surgery is designed to correct asymmetry. At the same time, some breast lift can be achieved with surgery.
The procedure can be performed using implants or fat tissue. In Turkey, breast surgery can be performed by placing a breast implant over the muscle. The implant may contain silicone or saline.
Breast implant surgery is one of the most popular plastic surgery operations in Turkey. In this surgery, treatments are performed for many various reasons, including medical and aesthetic, to balance breast size, add fullness, or correct congenital breast defects.
How is Breast Augmentation Surgery Performed?
To place the breast implant, your surgeon can make a single incision in one of three possible places:
- In the fold under your breast (inframammary)
- Under your arm (axillary)
- Around your nipple (periareolar)
After the incision is made, the surgeon will separate your breast tissue from the muscles and connective tissue of your chest. This creates a pocket behind or in front of the outermost muscle of the chest wall (pectoral muscle). The surgeon will place the implant in this pocket and center it behind the nipple.
Saline implants are inserted empty and then filled with sterile saline once they are in place. Silicone implants are pre-filled with silicone gel.
Once the implant is in place, the surgeon will close the incision with sutures and bandage it with skin glue and surgical tape. The choice of incision site is important to minimize scar formation.

What Happens After the Operation?
- Pain and swelling may occur a few weeks after surgery. Bruising may be observed. The scars fade over time but may not disappear completely.
- While healing, it is necessary to wear a compression bandage or sports bra to provide extra support for the breast implants and to maintain their positioning. Your surgeon will recommend the necessary bra. Pain control can be easily controlled with pain medication prescribed by our physician.
- You should carefully follow your surgeon’s instructions about returning to your routine life. If you do not have a physically demanding job that requires your body to work actively, you can return to work within a few weeks. You should avoid strenuous activities that raise your heart rate or blood pressure for at least two weeks. As you heal, remember that your breasts will be sensitive to physical contact or jarring movements.
- If your surgeon used sutures (stitches) that are not absorbed by the body or placed drainage tubes near your breasts, you will need a follow-up appointment to have them removed.
- If you notice warmth, redness or fever in your breast, you may have a surgical infection. If this happens, you should contact your surgeon as soon as possible. Likewise, if you have shortness of breath or chest pain, you should contact your surgeon immediately.
