How Breast Implants & Augmentation is done step by step?
Having one breast smaller than the other breast or having small breasts can cause self-confidence problems in women. If this condition bothers the individual, it is useful to contact the Department of Plastic Surgery and be examined. It is very important that you have an open communication with your surgeon to have the right expectations about the process of breast augmentation surgery and the image you will encounter after it. Breast augmentation surgeries can take advantage of adipose tissue and stem cells found in the body itself, as well as implants containing silicone or salt water. In operations where the bodies own tissue is used, fats taken from the fat layer located on both sides of the abdomen are placed in the breast tissue. In order for these fatty tissues to be permanent in their new places, they must be fed by veins. In order to create a new vein, it is also necessary to be transplanted together with stem cells.
Implants, on the other hand, can contain salt water contained in a silicone sheath or, again, a silicone gel. Implants containing salt water are filled with sterile saline fluid after they are placed in place. To place a breast implant, your surgeon can make a single incision (incision) in one of three possible places:
In the fold under your chest (inframammary)
Under your arm (axillary)
Around your nipple
After the incision is made, the surgeon will separate the breast tissue from the muscles and connective tissue of your chest. This creates a pocket behind or in front of the outermost muscle (the pectoral novelette) of the chest wall. The surgeon will place the implant in this pocket and center it behind the nipple. Saline implants are placed empty and then filled with sterile saline water after they are placed in place. Silicone implants are pre-filled with silicone gel. After the Implant is placed in place, the surgeon will close the incision (the incision he opened) with stitches and bandage it with skin glue and surgical tape. Choosing the incision site is important to minimize scar formation.
