Breast implantation or breast augmentation mammoplasty, does not matter how we call, is a plastic surgery procedure that aims to increase the size, to change the shape and enhance the contour of the breast.

How it is performed?

Although the surgery can be done under local anesthesia with sedation, Our Surgeon, Rıza Inan Kocaarslan generally advise general anesthesia to the patients. Therefore, as with most surgery, patient first have blood and anesthesia test done first before procedure.

In the most common technique, doctor makes an incision along the underside of patient breast. Afterwards, the surgeon places the implant through this opening. The implants may place below or above the pectoral muscle. With the submuscular placement method, implants are inserted under the pectoral muscle. There are two types of ‘Mentor’ brand implants that are used by our hospital. The first and most demanded one is round silicone. The other one is called as teardrop. The placement method, the type and the size of silicone will be determined after the first examination according to the patient’s breast and chest size as well as according to patient’s wishes.
