How Does It Work?

Also known as a boob job or augmentation mammoplasty, breast augmentation is an effective surgical procedure that enhances female breast size and shape. It is one of the most performed plastic surgery procedures in the whole world. When performing this procedure, surgeons normally use two types of implants: silicone and saline.

The former is the most preferred type of implant because it guarantees more natural results.

For your online consultation, we will kindly ask you to send your photos as shown in the Photography Guide down below, so we can evaluate your case.


What Does A Breast Augmentation with Implants Involve?

Breast augmentation with implants surgery takes 2 hours to complete and it is regularly performed as an outpatient procedure. If you decide to have this surgery, we will make sure that you have a pleasant trip and on the other hand, the surgeons will make it a point that they customize the surgery so as to match your needs, preferences as well as the clinics’ practices.

Here are some of the stages you should expect to go through if you decide to go through this procedure:

1. Taking the Anesthesia

This surgery is usually performed while the patient is under general anesthesia or intravenous sedation. This is done so that the patient doesn’t feel any sort of pain or discomfort during the procedure.

2. Making the incision

Incisions are made soon after the anesthesia kicks in. Surgeons typically use one of the following techniques to make incisions:

  • Periareolar Incision: This technique involves making an incision along the bottom edge of your areola.
  • Inframammary Incision: When using this technique, surgeons will make incisions just under the breast along the bottom fold.
  • Transaxillary Incision: This technique implies that the incision will be made at the bottom of your underarm.
  • Tuba Incision: Surgeons rarely use tuba incisions because it complicated. This technique involves making the incision from the belly button.

3. Inserting the Implants

Once the incisions are made, your surgeon will have to start inserting implants. This process can be done using any of the 2 techniques:

  • Subglandular placement: This technique allows your surgeon to insert the implants behind the breast tissue and in front of the pectoral muscle.
  • Subpectoral placement: When using this technique, the implant is placed in a pocket under the pectoral muscle.

The type of technique used to insert implants will depend on your body type, implant type as well as the size of the implant.

4. Closing the incisions

When the implants have been inserted, the incisions will either be stitched or closed using skin adhesives or surgical tapes –this normally depends on the site of the incision. Once the incisions are closed, you will be dressed up with bandages.

Suppose your surgeon closes the incisions using dissolvable stitches, you can expect them to vanish between the 6th and 8th week, but if your surgeon uses sutures that are not absorbable, they will have to be removed after 7 days.

Breast Implant Shapes

There are 2 different types of breast implant shapes.

  • Round breast implants: Round implants are the most preferred ones. As the name suggests, round breast implants will make your breasts look rounder and fuller. But the downside of this implant shape is that it appears less natural.

  • Teardrop breast implants: Unlike round breast implants, teardrop-shaped implants are sloped in contour and look more natural.

What Should I Expect from Breast Implants?

  • When you woke up after anesthesia, you will probably feel uncomfortable and in pain. This is one of the reasons why we recommend that you bring a companion to take you home
  • Your surgeon will advise you on the sleeping position.
  • If yours is not a job that involves a lot of physical activities, you can return to work after one week. 
  • During the healing process, you should wear a support bra to support the breasts and also to minimize swelling.
  • You should make sure that you use the medication prescribed to you by your surgeon so that you avoid post-op pain and infections.
  • You should avoid straining yourself and you are advised to keep your daily activities on a very light level.
  • Acute pain can be felt for a few days after the surgery, but it’s nothing that can’t be handled by the prescribed meds.
  • Your surgeon may allow you to take a shower 24 hours after the surgery, but you should avoid being in a bathtub or swimming pool in the first 2 weeks after the surgery.

Things You Should Do Before Breast Augmentation Surgery

  • A week before the procedure, you should stop taking Aspirin and any other meds associated with blood thinning.
  • If you are allergic to any drugs, you should inform your surgeon as soon as possible.
  • Patients are advised to avoid smoking 24 hours before the surgery.
  • Consuming any alcoholic beverages can affect anesthesia. So you should not take in anything alcoholic 24 hours prior to surgery.
  • If you are taking meds for chronic or acute diseases such as diabetes and heart disease, you should inform your surgeon before the surgery commences.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Is Breast Augmentation Painful?

You may feel pain or soreness after the procedure is done. However, your surgeon may prescribe painkillers to relieve this pain and discomfort.

Does Breast Augmentation Leave a Scar?

Most breast augmentation scars will appear red or pink and are mostly hidden under the bikini line and they become less noticeable over time.

What Are the Main Differences Between Fat Transfer and Breast Implants?

Breast implants do not require additional surgery in other parts of the body as in the fat graft procedure. The cost of breast augmentation surgery with implants is much lower than that of fat grafting.

Finally, the implants can be easily removed, but it is more difficult to remove the fat after injection. The advantage of fat transfer is to get rid of the stubborn excess fat accumulated in certain parts of the patient's body.

    Ana was extremely helpful, friendly and made planning my trip so much easier. I don't know what I would have done without her! Going overseas to a country you've never been to before to get plastic surgery can be scary, having Ana made it a lot less scary knowing you have somebody there that's on your team to help you.

    I have been checking a lot of websites to compare, then I found flymedi. They were very responsive and answered all my questions. I spoke to Kristie, she was prompt and professional. I felt comfortable speaking with the team. Later, they assigned me a coordinator, can, who was very helpful when I was in turkey. My only concern was the transportation and the hotel stay after the surgery. But flymedi also helped me to arrange those and everything went fine. I already recommended their service to my friends.

    They made my surgery process as easy as possible. Doktor Hasan was very attentive and explained what to do during the healing process in detail. I like my helpers; Ahmed and Kristie They answered every question I had, and they arranged the pick-ups between the hotel and the clinic. From beginning to end, everything was taken care of.

    So I finally decided to go through with a much-needed breast augmentation and uplift procedure. The price and quality of the care I received in Turkey were worlds above everything I have experienced here in the US. I had a fantastic experience and will definitely return for any future procedures I want to get done.

    Had my revision breast augmentation on 17/07/2020. I am over 3 weeks post and can still say it was the best thing I ever did! The staff are amazing and they listened to what I wanted. A massive bonus for me is that they were prepared to submit and deal with my warranty claim due to capsular contraction. It significantly saved me money meaning that after 13 years I could finally change my painful breasts. I owe them so much and could never express my gratitude. If I or anyone I know ever needs any sort of surgery then I wouldn't even hesitate a second to go back or recommend Coramed and the team. Also a massive bonus for anyone requiring breast implant revision, please look into your choice of surgeon, révision is much different to initial surgery and if your surgeon isn't specifically trained and experienced then they may not be able to give you your desired result. I can happily say that after researching my surgeon, I was happy that she had substantial experience with training and courses so I had full faith in her ability to be able to sort out my problem with competence and knowledge. She did an amazing job! Looking forward to seeing my long term results. Thank you all at Coramed. I have a vlog on YouTube following my progress for anyone who is doubtful that this is a genuine review.

    From start to finish my experience with Flymedi was exceptional. The coordinator, Abud worked hard at finding the right surgeon for me. He was constantly in contact while I was away to ensure everything went smoothly. I honestly could not be happier with the company. Dr Ozge has done an exceptional job too. Thank you Abud for making me feel confident again!

    I highly recommended Mustafa was good assistance all the way through. From airport, hotel, and hospital. The surgeon who conduct the operation did a great job. I was hesitant at first and was scared what would be the result but waking up after the surgery I was surprised by his professionalism. As well as Mustafa was being present every time I needed him out anytime I could contacted him. He never fails. Thanks to Y'ALL guys.
