Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure to enlarge the breast, achieve a more rounded breast shape or improve natural breast size asymmetry.
In general, to achieve the desired appearance of the patient is the basis of breast surgeries. For this reason, it is especially important to choose the most suitable breast appearance before the plastic surgery.
Breast augmentation surgery; allows breasts to get the desired size and form with silicone implants or fat tissue taken from the person. In the meantime, plastic surgery offers the person many implant options, such as drop model or round, in terms of shape, or textural, such as rough or flat surface. The number of options makes it difficult to choose, and that’s where 3D technologies come in.
Breast augmentation is not a difficult procedure for the patients, though as any other procedures, there are some things to consider before breast augmentation surgery is performed. Factors such as the patient’s body structure, skin structure, the amount of breast tissue available, the structure and strength of the chest muscle, also the patient’s sports habits should be evaluated and the appropriate technique for the patient should be determined.
One of the most frequently encountered questions in breast augmentation surgery is the ideal age for breast augmentation. The recommended age for breast augmentation is 18 years and above, when the breast tissue completes its developmental stage. In patients under the age of 18, in cases where one breast develops and the other does not develop (asymmetrical breast), if this affects the patient psychologically, a breast augmentation operation can be performed with the opinion of a psychologist.
