Breast implants come in many different sizes and are measured in cc’s (cubic centimeters). Our experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon who specialize in breast augmentation can be valuable in helping you decide what size of implant will best suit your anatomy.
There are two basic shapes to breast implants: round and teardrop. Round create the most dramatic cleavage. Teardrop implants are textured, which helps keep them from slipping or rotating after surgery. Decisions on implant shape are based on how patients want their new breasts to appear.
There are two types of fill for breast implants: silicone or saline. Silicone implants are filled before surgery, and require a lightly larger incision than saline implants. Saline-filled implants come in smooth and textured shells, can be round or teardrop-shaped, while ruptures are easier and faster to detect.
There are many important factors that can affect a breast augmentation procedure. These factors should be well understood and carefully discussed with your plastic surgeon at our renowned clinic, Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Istanbul.
Submuscular placement of breast implants is a slightly more invasive surgery where the surgeon places the implant under the patient’s chest muscles. For subglandular placement, implants are placed above the chest muscles. Subglandular implant procedures involve shorter recovery times and smaller incisions for inserting the implant.
If you are considering breast augmentation surgery, you must be fully developed, physically and emotionally healthy, and have realistic expectations of your surgery.
