Breast enlargement in Turkey or breast augmentation is a cosmetic surgery for increasing the size of breasts with
breast implants or fat transferred from other parts of the body.
It can also be performed for altering the shape of breasts or diminishing any asymmetry in breast size.
Breast implants can be roughly divided into two categories: saline-filled and silicone gel-filled breast implants.
Saline implants have silicone shells which are filled with saline, i.e. sterile salt water.
Silicone gel implants have silicone shells which are filled with silicone, a plastic gel. These implants entail more risk in the case of an implant rupture in comparison to saline implants,but generally feel more natural.
The shells of both types of implants can be smooth or textured depending on the patient’s preference.
Before the surgery
The following might be asked of you before having your breast enlargement:
- Getting tests for medical evaluation
- Abstaining from nicotine
- Abstaining from aspirin and anti-inflammatory drugs
- Abstaining from recreational drugs
- Taking specific medications or adjusting current medication
Postoperative Care & Recovery after Breast Enlargement in Turkey
After breast enlargement surgery, the breasts are covered with gauze and elastic bandages as they heal. Thin tubes might be placed under the skin for draining any build-up of excess blood or fluids.
You are instructed on what medication to use for healing and
how to take care of the chest area during your recovery.
A follow-up appointment is arranged.
During the first few days activity should be reduced to a minimum
and any form of physical straining should be avoided for up to six weeks after breast enhancement.
One to five days are usually needed for the pain to recede,while the swelling typically goes down after several weeks,when the final results of the breast enhancement should be visible.

The breast enhancement scars can take from a couple of months to a few years to fade.
It is advised to make inquires with your surgeon concerning the period immediately after the surgery and during recovery.
You may have questions about where you will be placed after the surgery, what medications you will be given,
and when to arrange an appointment for follow-up care.
Regular examinations should be done to determine the condition of the implants and overall health of the breasts.
