Breast Augmentation/Enlargment - Implants

Introduction:

Breast Implants Plastic Surgery

Dr Yaprak’s Philosophy is for a natural enhancement and creates a synergy between your natural body type and your desired result to create a truly natural result.

Breast Implants (augmentation mammaplasty) are a common procedure for ladies who are not satisfied with their current breast shape and size due to:

  • Insufficient development
  • Disease, Trauma
  • Post-pregnanacy Loss

Why have a Breast Augmentation?

Breast Augmentation increases the volume of the breast making it look fuller and/or curvier overall appearance.  Breast Augmentation can correct an asymmetry in size between the breasts balancing them out, achieving an equal size and shape.  Breast Augmentation is used for rexonstruction after a mastectomy due to cancer treatment.

During your first consultation with Dr Yaprak, he will

  • Explain the procedure
  • Discuss your history
  • Tell you the risks of the surgery

  • Take some confidential pre-operative photos
  • Go over the procedure again to make sure you have a complete uderstanding of the operation, the risks, and expectations
  • Discuss the size range based on your discussion with Dr Yaprak

What are the choices for implants?

Bulent Yaprak in Surgery

Implants commonly used are either filled with silicone or saline.  Implants have a thick outer silicone-rubber shell which has either textured or a smooth surface. 

Dr Yaprak will discuss the implants with you at both consultations so you become familiar with the form and size before your surgery.  The companies who manufacture the implants do so under strict quality controls reducing the rist of capsule formation, gel leakage, rupture etc.  The exact make, model, and batch number is carefully recorded for any future reference.

Sometimes, Dr Yaprak will use a tissue expander to stretch the tissues.  This is inserted and continually gradually inflated.

 

Incision Location:

WHICH INCISION LOCATION IS BEST FOR ME?

Incision locations for Breast Implants can be Periareolar, Transaxillary or inframammary.  Dr Yaprak will discuss all these options with you at your consulation and make his recommendations based on your individual anatomy. 

One incision is made per implant and the scar from the incision is usually around 5-6 centimetres long.  All operations can cause a scar and it will take time to heal and fade.  

Placement of Implants:

Breast Implants are placed behind the breast tissue rather than within it.  The Implnat can be either placed:

 

  • Between the chest muscle and breast tissue
  • Behind the chest, or pectorial muscle

 

Each of thses placements has pros and cons.  Dr Yaprak will discuss these advantages and disadvantages with you and explain the best method for your individual anatomy.
