Breast enlargement surgery (breast augmentation or augmentation mammoplasty as the procedures are often referred to) is some of the World`s most popular cosmetic procedures. Even though millions of women worldwide have opted for this procedure, there are still many misconceptions about the procedure itself, the costs, and the maintenance required after the procedure. This article offers a piece of brief information about breast augmentation surgery in Turkey to give you a solid starting point for discovering more about the surgeries and making well-informed decisions about plastic surgery abroad.
Many patients come into a doctor’s office after looking through breast enlargement surgery before and after pictures.
People have different aesthetic preferences; some would like to improve their breast symmetry, and some would like to acquire different breast size.

After pregnancy, breastfeeding, breast cancer treatment/surgery, or simply coming of age, many women choose to restore their breasts to their former shape and size with the help of breast augmentation.
Before the surgery is scheduled, the patient and surgeon discuss the different incision options and decide on one of the three choices:
- Inframammary incision (under/below the breast)
- Peri-areolar incision (in the armpit)
- Transaxillary incision (around the nipple)
The decision not only depends on the patient`s personal preference but also on their anatomy and the degree of breast enlargement desired.
The Placement of the Implants
The chosen breast implants are placed into a pocket. There are two different types of placements:
- Submammary (sub-glandular) placements; the implant is placed over the pectoral muscle, behind the breast tissue.
- Sub-muscular placements; the implant is placed under the pectoral muscle.
There are several different types and brands of breast implants to choose from that vary in shape (for example, round and teardrop breast implants), content (for example, saline implants, silicone implants, etc.), and size (depending on the breast sizes desired). Sometimes the choice of breast implants determines what placement is used.
The Closing of the Incision
The incisions are usually closed with stitches/sutures, skin adhesives, and/or surgical tape.
Depending on the country you choose to get the breast augmentation and your exact procedure, costs can vary greatly. Because breast enlargement procedures tend to be significantly more expensive in the West (in the U.S. and U.K., for example) than they are in other countries around the world, many patients choose to seek treatment abroad.
Turkey has been one of the most popular destinations for patients seeking a variety of different treatments abroad and medical procedures such as breast enlargement plastic surgery in Turkey. This is due to several reasons; the most important one being that patients are able to receive high-quality medical services from highly skilled and trained medical experts at significantly lower costs.
Because breast augmentation procedures generally require a patient to take some time off work anyway, many choose to have their procedures done in Turkey and combine their medical procedures with a fantastic holiday in one of the world’s top holiday destinations!
