Information about the procedure
Breast implants have been used to improve the size and shape of
a female breast since the 1960s. Silicone implants were first used in 1961 and
the first saline implant was used in 1964. Both types of implants have been
improved significantly since then. Silicone was initially used to a high extent
due to its natural structure but it was temporarily banned in 1992 due to
implant leakage, tearing, and potential carcinogenic concerns. This was later
reversed in 2006 after receiving the results of major research in the area,
showing improvements in implant manufacturing. The risks were significantly
reduced. When we review the scientific literature, the investigations performed
on thousands of patients in the past 15 years revealed that there was no data
indicating breast cancer development in association with breast implants. It
has been reported that there is no need to growing concerns about the safety of

Breast augmentation is often performed under general anesthesia.
After administering anesthesia, the patient's skin is cleansed. A pocket is
carefully created for implant placement according to the type of incision
discussed. The implants are placed inside the breasts, ensuring that they are
sterile. Regular checks and measurements are carried out to ensure symmetry.
Then, the breast tissue and skin are sutured with absorbable sutures in three
layers. The skin is covered with sterile dressings and the patient is dressed
in a supportive bra.

anesthesiologist and the anesthesia nurse and once the patient is awake they are transferred
to his or her room.
