Breast augmentation (with silicone implants)
Having an important role in women’s body perceptions, absence or smallness of breasts effect their self -esteem and social relationships, hence it’s not true to assume breast augmentation operations as solely aesthetical procedures. Brest augmentation operations can be done with different types of breast implants. Breast implants can be placed under or above the muscle depending on the characteristics of patients. Before the operation planning about the selection of the implant which has the most ideal volume and shape for the patient is done. Depending on the type of the breast anatomical(tear-drop) or spherical(round) implants can be used. In the patients with too much breast sagging not only breast augmentation but also breast lifting may have to be done concurrently.
