Acıbadem Altunizade Hospital Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery Specialist Doctor, Faculty Member Çiğdem Karadağ Sarı said, “The desire to make changes in the areas of the body that people do not like during the pandemic has greatly increased the interest in breast aesthetics. However, for a successful aesthetic, all questions in mind should be asked to the Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery specialist before the operation, and the patient and the physician should definitely plan many details by talking together. Doctor, Faculty Member Çiğdem Karadağ explained the 6 most frequently asked questions about yellow breast aesthetics and made important warnings and suggestions.
” I had breast augmentation surgery with silicone, will silicones last a lifetime?”
Although silicones are mostly lifetime, in some cases they can be replaced. For example; In some patients, a thin membrane called a ‘capsule’, which the body produces around the silicone, forms over time. Sometimes, if this membrane tightly surrounds the breast prosthesis, it causes pain and deformity in the patient, in which case it is necessary to intervene in the membrane. If necessary, the prosthesis can be changed in the same session.
“I really liked my friend’s, will I have the same? ”
Doctor, Faculty Member Çiğdem Karadağ Sarı said, “We often encounter requests such as ‘I liked my friend’s, can I have the same?’ in patients who apply for breast aesthetics. Or, by bringing a photograph, it is said, “I want it to be like this too”. But unfortunately, each individual’s response to surgery is different due to their body structure, tissue, wound healing potential and environmental factors. Even if you apply the same process to two people, you may not get the same result. The individual should be unique, should not try to resemble someone else, and should plan the most suitable one together with the physician.
“Will my breasts sag again after breast lift surgery?”
Although not as much as before, it will sag a little over time. The degree of sagging is determined by the flexibility of the skin structure and tissues of the person and the surgical operation performed. If the patient becomes pregnant and breastfeeds after breast lift surgery, sagging is inevitable. For this reason, it will be much healthier to have breast lift aesthetics after the birth planning is complete.
” When can I start sports after breast augmentation surgery?”
If the implant is placed under the muscle, then sports activities that work the chest muscles should be started at least 2 months later, but if the supramuscular prosthesis is placed, then sports can be started after 1 month without too much difficulty. For this reason, breast implants should not be placed under the muscle in athletes. Walking style and activities that will not force the operation area can be started easily 1 week after the operation.
“When can I start breastfeeding after breast augmentation?”
If breast augmentation surgery is performed in the right hands, there will be no situation that will affect the breastfeeding of the mother. But it is important to distinguish the following point; Even in people who do not have any surgery on the breast, inability to breastfeed, lack of milk or less milk can be seen. Therefore, if the patient has not experienced breastfeeding before the surgery and has a baby in the post-operative period and has problems in breastfeeding, it would not be correct to attribute this to the surgery.
“Will I have back and neck pain after breast reduction surgery?”
Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery Specialist Doctor, Lecturer Çiğdem Karadağ Sarı “Breast reduction surgeries are surgeries that significantly eliminate the health problems of the person beyond aesthetic surgeries. In patients with breast size, hunching (deterioration of the spine structure), pain in the shoulders, neck and back, deep bra marks on the shoulders, and hygiene problems due to sweating under the breasts are seen. With breast reduction surgery, the breast volume is reduced as much as possible and at the same time the sagging breast is lifted, giving the patient both physiological relief and a beautiful aesthetic appearance.
