Breast aesthetics are considered an important component of feminine beauty. As a result, breast augmentation surgery, which can be applied to equalize both breasts or increase their volume, is among the most popular aesthetic procedures worldwide. Surgery changes a person’s appearance and increases self-confidence, which is one of the main reasons why it is chosen so often. Thanks to the breast prostheses placed under the breast during breast augmentation procedures, the breast circumference can be increased by more than one bra size. If the patient complains of breast sagging, breast augmentation can be performed together with breast prosthesis augmentation.
How is Breast Augmentation Surgery Performed?
Prosthetic surgery is currently the most popular and reliable option for breast augmentation procedures. The preoperative examination determines the type and size of the prosthesis to be used during the surgery, the area where the prosthesis will be placed, the incision site, the patient’s expectations from the surgery, and the patient’s existing breast tissue. The incision for the prosthesis can be made in one of three places during breast augmentation procedures. These appear below the breast line, under the nipple, or at the level of the armpit line.
