The Blue Mosque
The Sultan Ahmed Mosque, also called the Blue Mosque incorporates Islamic architecture and Byzantine Christian elements in its design. It is considered to be the last great mosque of the classical period. The Mosque got its name from the 20,000 Iznik blue ceramic tiles used to line its interiors. The Blue Mosque is also the final resting place of Sultan Ahmed which commissioned the building in 1609, with work finishing in 1616.
The Basilica Cistern is one of the most popular tourist sites in Istanbul. The Cistern is huge, with a total of 336 columns arranged in 12 rows. It was built in order to store water during the Byzantine time – in the 6th century. Most of the columns feature decorative carvings, as they were re-used from other classical-age structures. Some of the most interesting columns on the site are the Medusa stones, in the north-west corner of the Cistern.
Topkapı Palace is one of the finest examples of Islamic art and architecture. The palace itself was built by Mehmet the Conqueror in the 15th century and has been the residence of Ottoman Sultans for over 400 years. The palace is a vast complex of richly decorated courtyards and rooms. The palace features a Harem, the Imperial Treasury room, the Imperial Council Chamber, the Second Court, the Third Court (the Sultan’s private rooms) and the Palace Kitchens. The palace became an UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1985 and has been described as “one of the best examples of palaces of the Ottoman period”.

Breast implant surgery, also known as a “boob job” is a type of breast augmentation in which a prosthesis is used to change the shape, size and texture of a woman’s breast.
Breast implants are not recommended for patients that suffer from any type of infection in the body, women who are breast feeding or pregnant and women battling cancer.
The patient should not take any medications containing aspirin, vitamin E, anti inflammatory medication or ibuprofen for at least 10 days before the surgery. Smoking is prohibited for at least 2 weeks before and after the surgery as it can interfere with the anaesthesia. Alcohol is prohibited at least 1 week before and after the surgery.
Firstly, the surgeon will discuss the procedure with the patient and decide on the type of implant, incision site and the final location of the implant. A mammography is necessary before the procedure can begin. Any irregularities in the breast tissue can interfere with the surgery.
The patient is then administered general anaesthesia and the surgeon can begin creating the necessary incisions and the pockets where the implants will be placed.
The incision can be done around the areola, in the armpit, along the lower portion of the breast or through the navel.
There are three types of breast implant surgery, according to the placement of the prosthesis:
● Subglandular breast implants
● Submuscular breast implants
● Subpectoral breast implants
Under muscle breast implants seems to be one of the most popular breast implant options as it has a positive effect on the look and feel of the breast, as well as on the post-op recovery time.
Under the muscle best suited for:
● Patients with limited breast tissue to cover the prosthesis
● Patients with little or no drooping of the bust
● Thin women
Over the muscle best suited for:
● Patients with enough breast tissue to cover the implant entirely
● Patients with drooping breasts that wish a larger bust
● Patients looking for a faster recovery period.
Once the implants are placed in their final position, the incisions are sutured up and the area is bandaged in order to prevent infection and bleeding.
Local or General anesthetic
Usually overnight stay is not required
5 to 7 days
Around 1 hour
5 to 7 days
2 - 3 weeks
There are two types of breast implants:
● Silicone breast implants
● Saline breast implants
Some of the most popular breast implant shapes are conical breast implants, round breast implants and teardrop (anatomical) breast implants.
The patient can usually return to work and normal activities in around 5-7 days. Physical exercise is allowed around 2-3 weeks after surgery. During the recovery period the patient will be provided with a medical bra and a set of instructions from the doctor. These instructions need to be followed very carefully in order to ensure the success of the procedure.
Scars depend heavily on the area where the incision will be made. Scars made in the inframammary fold will fade away in a couple of months but they will never disappear completely.
A 2017 survey on breast implant complications sets the rate at around 2%. Complications can include:
● Developing capsule contracture
● Difficulty in breast feeding
● Implant ruptures
● Breast ptosis
The patient may feel nausea from general anaesthesia, inflammation, bruising and a lot of swelling during the first 2 or 3 weeks after surgery. Painkillers can be used to soothe some of these post-operatory effects.
A survey based on 225 breast implant reviews sets the satisfaction rate at 98%.
Women experience a higher self esteem, an increase in libido, higher feelings of attractiveness and a general increase in life satisfaction after a breast implant surgery.
Types of Breast Implants
Traditional Silicone Gel Breast Implants
Traditional silicone gel breast implants are made from silicone gel. These implants are approved by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration for use in breast reconstruction procedures as well as breast enhancement surgery for patients over the age of 22. Silicone gel implants feel more lifelike, mimicking natural breast tissue compared to saline solution implants.
Form Stable Implants
Form stable breast implants, also known as “Gummy Bear Implants” or highly cohesive silicone gel breast implants are made from a highly cohesive gel that makes them firmer and thicker compared to traditional silicone gel implants. These types of implants are becoming more and more popular among patients due to the results they offer.
Saline Breast Implants
Saline breast implants are implants filled with sterile salt water. These implants usually less popular among patients nowadays.
