Breast aesthetic operations are performed by specialists in this field, namely plastic surgeons. Although there is no exact standard for the shape and size of the breast, it is recommended that each individual should obtain the breast shape that best suits their body structure. Breast augmentation, breast lift, breast reduction and breast reconstruction are some of the most popular plastic surgery procedures today.
Surgical incisions made using the natural curve under the breast are ideal for placing breast implants. These implants are used to optimize the form, size and position of the breast. Thanks to round and drop-shaped implants that offer different volume and shape options, people can achieve their desired breast appearance.
In Which Situations Is Breast Aesthetics Applied?
Breast aesthetics is a method of physical and emotional transformation for many people. If the size and shape of the breast does not match the personal and aesthetic ideal, this type of intervention can be resorted to. In particular, inadequate breast size, age-related changes, asymmetry problems or changes after pregnancy may make this intervention necessary.
Although the age limit is generally recommended between 18 and 50, intervention can sometimes be performed outside these limits. For individuals under the age of 18, such an intervention may be possible with the consent of the family, especially for personal or psychological reasons. Likewise, it is also possible for individuals over the age of 50 to apply for this intervention after evaluating their health status and suitability for surgery.
Men may also have fat accumulation in the chest area as a result of hormonal imbalances, certain health problems or malnutrition. This can lead to a lack of self-confidence in men. With this intervention called gynecomastia, excess fat is removed using liposuction method and the individual is helped to regain self-confidence.
What are the Types of Breast Aesthetics?
Breast aesthetics aims to improve an individual’s physical appearance and self-esteem. Procedures in this field vary according to personal preferences, aesthetic goals and physiological characteristics.
Breast Augmentation: This procedure is performed to add volume to the breasts. It is generally preferred by those who experience volume loss in the breasts due to postpartum, sudden weight changes or congenital disproportion. The type of implant to be used in breast augmentation is determined by considering the patient’s body structure, weight and rib cage. The most appropriate implant is selected based on the patient’s expectations and the doctor’s assessment.
Breast Reduction: Large breasts can cause physical discomfort and aesthetic concerns. Reduction Mammoplasty is performed to eliminate problems such as back and neck pain that excessively large breasts can cause. With this procedure, excess breast tissue and fat are removed, thus achieving a more aesthetic and comfortable breast size.
Breast Lift (Mastopexy): Over time, breasts may sag due to aging, weight changes or reasons such as childbirth and breastfeeding. Mastopexy is a procedure performed to return the breast to its natural form. Through incisions made around the nipple, sagging tissues are recovered and an upright appearance is achieved by supporting them with a prosthesis.
Gynecomastia Treatment: This is the treatment of excessive breast tissue in men. It usually occurs as a result of hormonal imbalances or some health problems. In gynecomastia treatment, excess fat tissue is removed by liposuction. During this procedure, fatty tissues are sucked out through a small tube, thus achieving a smooth and aesthetic chest line.
