Breast Augmentation Surgery
Breast augmentation surgery is carried out under general anesthesia and approximately takes 1-2 hours. The silicone prosthesis can be placed via three regions of the breasts. These are the nipple, under the breast and armpit. This should be discussed with the plastic surgeon and decided accordingly. After the decision is made, an incision is made in the region and the silicone prosthesis is inserted into the breast without damaging it. When the procedure is completed, the area is stitched and the patient is sent to her room.
It is important to stay under control during the first night after breast augmentation. To reduce edema it is necessary to wear a special bra or sports bra. After 3-5 days the patient is allowed to shower. Heavy movements should not be performed for 4-6 weeks.
