Breast enlargement surgery (breast augmentation or augmentation mammoplasty as the procedures are often referred to) are 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 brief information about breast augmentation surgery Turkey, to give you a solid starting point into discovering more about the surgeries and to making well informed decisions about plastic surgery abroad.

Why go for Breast Enlargement Surgery?

There are many possible reasons for an individual to decide that a breast augmentation surgery in Turkey will improve the quality of their life experience. Listed below are some of the most popular reasons:

Aesthetic Reasons
Many patients come into a doctor`s office after looking through breast enlargement surgery before and after pictures, in the hopes that they too can finally have the breasts that they envision.

People have different aesthetic preferences and sometimes would either like to improve their breast symmetry, and other times to acquire different breast sizes.

That`s why Welfare Abroad plastic surgeons prefer having an in-person consultation with our patients before the surgery date and decide about the shape and size of the breast implants together. Having a plastic surgery in Turkey has been becoming more and more popular in the recent years and we want to make sure that our patients coming for cosmetic surgery abroad leave the country satisfied.

After pregnancy, breast feeding, breast cancer treatment/surgery, or simply with the coming of age, many women choose to restore their breasts to their former shape and size with the help of breast augmentation.

The Breast Enlargement Surgery Turkey:

Even though different surgeries may vary in their procedure (depending on the purpose of the surgery or the desired results), most breast enlargement surgeries follow the below steps:

The Anaesthesia
In some cases a patient is given the choice between local or general anaesthesia; typically though, the patient is put under general anaesthesia.

The Incision
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)
Periareolar 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 the breast enlargement desired.

The Placement of the Implant
The chosen breast implants are placed into a pocket. There are two different types of placements:

a) Submammary (sub-glandular) placements; the implant is placed over the pectoral muscle, behind the breast tissue.

b) 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.

Recovery after a Breast Enlargement Plastic Surgery in Turkey:

When patients see breast augmentation before after pictures they do not take into account the recovery period in between. Recovery can take some time since body needs to adapt to the implants. Patients are usually advised not to drive for a couple of days, or engage in any physically strenuous activities for several weeks like heavy lifting.

Welfare Abroad surgeons provide information on how to care for the breasts, what medication to take, what to avoid. Our patient services team also keep in touch/ask for your pictures during restoration period so that our patients tackle this period with ease.

The costs of Breast Enlargement Plastic Surgery in Turkey:

Most patients usually wonder “how much will my boob job cost” but there isn`t a single answer to this question. Depending on the country you choose to get the breast augmentation, and your exact procedure, costs can vary greatly. Because the 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!
