Breast augmentation surgeries are procedures for women to enlarge their breasts in size and shape. In breast augmentation surgery, a breast prosthesis is placed behind the breast. Thanks to this implanted prosthesis, chest circumference measurements can be enlarged by one or more sizes. Today, breast augmentation is one of the most applied aesthetic surgeries. With breast augmentation surgeries, small breasts will become fuller, larger and more aesthetically perfect. Natural materials made of silicone, called prostheses or implants placed under the breast tissue, help increase breast volume. In breast augmentation surgeries, silicones will not have any negative effects on the body as long as they are not pierced and then spread to the body. Of course, there are risks in all surgical operations. Self-confidence will increase even more in people who have breast augmentation surgery.
Can I get pregnant and breastfeed after breast augmentation surgery?
There is a misconception among the public that if a person becomes pregnant after breast augmentation surgery, silicone prostheses should be removed. Yes, this is wrong. Because in breast augmentation surgeries, the breast prosthesis placed on the breast is placed under the breast tissue. The milk ducts do not close as they are under the breast tissue. As the channels are not closed, people can become pregnant and breastfeed their babies without removing the silicone prosthesis.
Does breast prosthesis inserted in breast augmentation surgeries cause cancer?
As a result of the researches that have been discussed and conducted in the USA for years, it has been revealed that breast prosthesis does not trigger cancer, therefore it does not cause cancer. In addition, breast prostheses are not perceived as a foreign substance by the body.
The outer surface of the prosthesis is made of silicone. For this reason, this material makes silicone more durable.
What will I experience after breast augmentation surgery?
Since breast augmentation surgery is not a very painful operation, it will be sufficient to stay in the hospital that night only for control. The next day, the patient can easily go home. As in all breast surgeries, a drain is used in breast augmentation surgery. The drains are removed 1-2 days after the operation. You may experience arm pain for five days after the surgery. During this period, you should move without tiring your arms and should not carry heavy things. One week after this process, you can return to your normal life.
Will my breasts sag after breast augmentation surgery?
The answer to this question is about where the silicone prostheses are placed.
If the silicone prostheses are placed under the muscle, there will be no sagging of the breast after the operation.
The reason for this is that the breast prosthesis does not burden the skin since it carries the breast muscles and ligaments.
However, it is recommended that the patient use a sports bra for about four and five weeks after breast augmentation surgery.
