How Does It Work?

Popularly known as a boob job, breast implants are one of the types of breast augmentation surgery. It’s one of the most popular plastic surgeries among women. The aim of this procedure is to make breasts bigger and improve symmetry, and proportion.

There are 2 types of implants used in this procedure: silicone and saline. Of the two types of implants, silicone implants are the most popular because they offer a more natural look.

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 Implant Surgery Involve?

It takes an hour or two to complete the breast implant surgery –and it’s usually performed as an outpatient procedure.

Once you have decided to undergo breast implant surgery, we will plan and customize the procedure so as to suit your personal preferences, needs, and the clinics’ practices. Although it can differ from one patient to the other, there are four main stages involved in this procedure. To give you an idea, here is the procedure’s step-by-step guide:

Administering Anesthesia

When performing this surgery, your surgeon will give you intravenous sedation or general anesthesia. This is done so that you don’t feel any sort of pain or discomfort during the surgery. In most cases, patients are asked to decide the type of anesthesia they prefer.

Making Incisions

Once the anesthesia kicks in, what follows is the incision-making step. There are 3 different incision techniques that your surgeon can use. Your surgeon will help you decide the technique that best matches your anatomy and aesthetic goals. The three incision techniques are outlined below:

  • Periareolar incision: This incision is made along the bottom edge of your areola.

  • Inframammary incision: This incision is made under the breast along the bottom fold.

  • Transaxillary incision: This incision is made right at the bottom of your underarm.

Inserting the Implants

After the incisions are made, the next step is to insert the implants. There are 2 main options of placing implants, these are:

  • Subglandular placement: when using this technique, your surgeon will insert the implants behind the breast tissue and in front of the pectoral muscle.

  • Subpectoral placement: this technique involves placing the implant in a pocket under the pectoral muscle.

Your surgeon will use a placement type that is best for you, according to your body type, implant type, and the desired size of the breast.

Closing the Incisions

The final step of the surgery is to close the incisions. Your surgeon will either use stitches, skin adhesive, or surgical tape to close the incision –this usually depends on the incision site. The treated area will then be bandaged. 

Suppose your surgeon uses dissolvable stitches to close the incisions, expect them to be invisible within the next 6 to 8 weeks. But if the surgeon uses sutures that are not absorbable, they will be removed after 7 days.

Breast Implant Shapes

Breast implants come in 2 different shapes: round implants and teardrop implants.

  • Round breast implant: This is the preferred shape of breast implants because they look rounder and fuller. However, they are considered to be less natural.

  • Teardrop breast implants: This breast implant shape is sloped in contour, but it appears more natural.

Am I an Ideal Candidate for Breast Implants?

You can qualify as a suitable candidate for breast implant surgery if you have overall good health. If you want to enlarge your breasts, this surgery is the best option for you –but it will not correct saggy or droopy breasts. In this case, you might need a Mastopexy or Breast Lift surgery, in addition to breast implants.

What Should I Expect from Breast Implants?

  • When you woke up after anesthesia, you will probably feel uncomfortable and in pain. You’ll need a companion to take you home.

  • You should sleep in the advised position of your surgeon.

  • If you are not in physical labor, you can return to your job after the first week.

  • During the healing process, you should wear a support bra to minimize the swelling and support the breasts.

  • You should use the medications which will be given to you by the surgeon. They will prevent post-op pain and infections.

  • You should keep your daily activities on a very light level.

  • Acute pain is usually reduced after one to five days, but the pain and swelling may persist for several weeks.

  • Your surgeon may allow you to take a shower 24 hours after the surgery, but you should avoid being in the water for 2 weeks after the surgery. This includes bath water, swimming pools, hot tubs, etc.

Things You Should Avoid Before 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 Implants Procedure Painful?

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

Do Breast Implants 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.

    I found Flymedi after a long search on the Internet. It is very convenient that they arrange your accommodation and ensure you are taken care of after the surgery. If you feel better, you can even go out to discover the city. In my case, that's what I did. I found everybody very attentive and professional in the hospital. The only downside is that I had a couple of delays because of the heavy traffic in Istanbul. It was a little stressful.

    I contacted Flymedi about getting a breast augmentation done and I was contacted by Abud shortly thereafter who was helped me through the initial planning phase so well. Since I am coming all the way from Africa and have never traveled alone, Abud organized a video call with the surgeon to go over some of the questions I had as well as my expectations of the surgery.

    I had an amazing experience with Flymedi for a Breast surgery, stress free. Particular thanks to Diana, that has been available 24hrs, and replied to all my questions. I couldn't expect better on that - thanks to her for being so helpful and caring. I had to worry about nothing apart from resting/recovering, everything was booked from A to Z. I am still in the process of healing, but so happy about the results so far. It went beyond my expectations, a true life changing surgery. Quite complicating to get proper advices during the healing process as it's virtual, but Diana made it much easier and trying to get all the info as fast as possible. Thanks again - this is safe and you have access to quality surgeons. I trusted mine and he did an amazing job, thanks Dr Erkin.
