One of the most important issues of breast augmentation aesthetics is the choice of silicone prosthesis. Since the body structure of each person is different regarding the subject that completely affects the result of the operation, many alternatives can be mentioned.
Finding the appropriate prosthesis by calculating many variables such as the shape of the rib cage, the amount of breast tissue on it, the amount of muscle, skin elasticity, the width of the rib cage and the height of the person; It provides a natural result in breast augmentation.
Silicone prosthesis alternatives used in breast augmentation aesthetics
In breast augmentation surgeries, silicone prostheses that mimic breast tissue are placed in the breasts to obtain larger breasts. While silicone prostheses are divided into round and drop (anatomical) according to their shapes, they also consist of different alternatives in terms of content and surface.
When the prostheses, which have two alternatives as smooth and rough on the surface, are examined according to their content; saline and silicone filled. Silicone prosthesis alternatives, which vary greatly in many respects, have different alternatives according to their width, length and height or projections.
When choosing the size of the prosthesis, the appropriate shape and size of the prosthesis is decided in cooperation with the patient-doctor, taking into account the characteristics of the patient’s rib cage (such as width and length), breast tissue and the breast size they want to achieve. The base of the prosthesis should be proportional to the rib cage.
Location of silicone prostheses
Where and where the silicone implants will be placed is one of the issues that should be decided by patient-doctor communication. Silicone prostheses that can be placed under the arm, in the nipple, under the breast and in some cases through the belly button can be placed under the muscle, above the muscle, under the breast, under the muscle membrane.
In order to avoid both comfortable and long-term use and complications that may occur after the operation, it will be useful to make a decision about where to place the prostheses by taking into account the recommendations of your physician in line with your experience.
Do silicone implants used for breast augmentation cause cancer?
Research in the last 10 years has proven that silicone prostheses do not cause cancer or any other disease.
As in every operation, there are some risks in breast augmentation surgeries with silicone prosthesis. In addition to the risks of bleeding, scarring and infection, there are also some risks arising from anesthesia and the risk of prosthesis wear and deformation in the future. In the light of preoperative tests, precautions are taken to avoid such risks.
