Breasts are very important organs in terms of femininity figure and a woman’s perception of her body image. Small and problematic breasts always disturb the subconscious of the woman. With small breasts, even wearing a dress befittingly becomes a problem. In short, breast is the most important part of the body that makes a woman a real woman both spiritually and physically.
Today’s implant technology has quite developed. Forms that mimic the natural female breast have been created. Silicone drop is the popularly known one among them. The outer surfaces of implants can be smooth or textured. Implants with a silicone structure are produced under extremely hygienic and special conditions. The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved the use of such materials. Silicone is an entirely natural element available in nature. It exists in the beach sand and natural crystal’s structure, which is referred to as quartz. They are added into the structures of many products from stainless steel to baby food. Silicates are the integral building blocks of the human connective tissue. İmplants medically placed into the body are the area where silicone-based materials are used the most intensively. For example, heart valves contain silicone.
Implants used for breast augmentation are placed into the body primarily through 4 ways;
Through an incision made under the breast
Through an incision made around the nipple
Through an incision made in the armpit
Through an incision made in the belly-button
Among these, the belly-button is rarely used because it does not give considerably good results. Breast implants are placed primarily into the two main parts of the body;
Subpectoral — Under the pectoral muscles
Subglandular — On the pectoral muscles.
It is determinative for the individual characteristics and preferences. The size of the breast and the place to where the implant will be placed (under or on the pectoral muscles) are determined after the patient-physician consultation and the patient’s examination. At that stage, you should discuss with your physician the size that you want and for what purpose you want the operation. I definitely consider all the body proportions, and attach importance to the waist girth, hip width and bust.
Silicone is a natural element commonly found in the nature. Silicone is a metalloid element that forms silicone dioxide by reacting with oxygen; and in this form, it is the most common substance in the world. As silica, it enters into many structures from beach sand to natural crystal. Silicates turn into silicone, in the presence of intensive heat and carbon. Silicone can be produced in a variety of consistency from liquid to gel to rubber as polymer. It is often available in the contents of lubricating oils, brighteners, body lotions, soaps, processed foods, chewing gums, and waterproof foods.
There is no evidence that silicone implants lead to a major disease in the body. Women are already often exposed to silicone in their already daily lives. And ironically, there is a greater amount of silicone in cows’ milk and infant formula than are available in the breast milk of women with silicone implants.
The clinical studies conducted have shown it to be impossible.
The technician who will carry out the mammography procedure should be given information before mammography controls. The mammography procedure should be carried out accordingly. It is not affected by MRI and CT, and the radiologist can easily evaluate the imaging results.
It is possible for us to develop an allergy to any substance in the world. However, silicone allergy is quite rare, although we are exposed to many silicone-containing materials in our daily lives. Thus, if you are allergic to silicone, it will be revealed before you get silicone breast implants.
Silicone breast implants have no expiration date. However, a woman may demand size and location changes due to the cycles and changes in her life. If the size is intended to be changed, the implants should definitely be replaced with new ones.
You can start with walking immediately after operation but sports activities that require intensive effort should be deferred for 4 to 6 weeks. You should abstain from sweating throughout the first 15 days, when wound healing is intensive. You can have a shower a week later. During exercise, use the bras recommended by your physician.
The breast area should not be exposed to sunlight in the first year.
You should not wear such a bra for a period of at least 3 months.
Temporary changes may be felt but they are recoverable.
Definitely yes, as long as you are healthy.
You can breastfeed without suffering from any problems.
