Breast augmentation is an aesthetic surgery in which the size of breasts is increased and their shapes are improved by placing silicone prostheses or by fat injection.

Breasts can be small or asymmetric for various reasons. Silicone prosthesis (implant) application is the most valid method today to make breasts equal or to increase their volume.

While breast augmentation helps you achieve a plump breast size and a more aesthetically attractive breast shape, a little breast lift can also be achieved.

Instead of a breast prosthesis, the fat tissue taken by liposuction can also be injected to the breast and growth can be achieved. However, injecting fat is not a permanent method.

How to Choose Breast Implant Shape and Size?

Breast implants come in different shapes and sizes. They are called round and anatomic teardrop breast implants.

There are many parameters used when deciding on the type, size and shape of the prosthesis to be used in breast augmentation. These parameters vary depending on the person's anatomy. When choosing a breast implant; the size of existing breast, the width of rib cage, the width of breast base, the thickness of breast tissue, whether there is sagging or asymmetry in the breasts, the condition of skin and muscles, the degree of looseness, and the person's own preferences are considered. Therefore, the implant to be used in the operation is determined by your doctor after the examination.

Where to Place the Prostheses?

Prostheses can be placed in 3 different layers through the incisions made in different regions. According to your expectations and anatomy, the type and location of your prosthesis is determined by your doctor:

  1. Under the existing breast tissue (above the muscle),

  2. Under the membrane covering the muscle carrying the existing breast tissue (under the fascia),

  3. Under the muscle that carries the breast tissue (under the muscle).

Can the prostheses have been used in breast augmentation operation be changed later?


There is a silicone tissue around the breast prostheses that protects the liquid inside. This tissue prevents prosthesis from touching the breast.

Prostheses can be used for life under normal conditions, but there is also no harm in changing the prosthesis with patient's request.
