How is Breast Enlargement Operation Done?
The steps for breast enlargement, which is quite common nowadays, are as follows:

The Incision: There are different incision options depending on the procedure to be done. These are as follows:
- Periareolar incision: It is applied right below the brown ring.
- Inframammary incision: It is applied below the breast.
- Transaxillary incision: It is applied from the armpit area.
Implant Placement: There are also two different options. In the first one, the implant is placed either behind or in front of the breast whereas in the second one, it is placed at a suitable point below the breast.
Final Stage: At this stage, the incisions are closed with stitches and bandages and thus the procedure is completed.
2. Bread Reduction
This procedure is also known as mammoplasty where tissue, fat and skin cells are removed from the breast. This procedure may be done to eliminate different health issues as well as for aesthetic concerns. Having large breasts may cause problems like neck ache, back ache, bra strap scars and rashes under the breast. Breast reduction procedure may be used to eliminate these.
There are different options for breast reduction. You can choose the appropriate one after consulting with your doctor. These options are:
Anchor Breast Reduction: In this procedure, the incision starts from the top of the breast and after going straight down, it proceeds to both sides. So, the incision looks like an anchor. After removing fat, skin and tissue cells from the lower parts of the breast, the areola is placed at a higher position and the procedure is completed by closing the incisions.
Vertical Breast Reduction: This method has been developed recently and it is suitable for moderately large breasts. A vertical downward incision is opened, and the breasts are brought to desired size by removing fat and tissue cells from this incision.
Scarless Breast Reduction: This procedure may be defined as just removing fat tissue. Small incisions are opened for liposuction and excess fat is removed with the help of cannulas placed.
It is up to the doctor which procedure to apply, depending on the patient’s condition. This issue is clarified during the consultation stage. The recovery period varies for each patient, but in general it is 2-3 weeks.
3. Breast Lifting
This procedure can be defined as eliminating the sagging of the breasts caused by reasons like breastfeeding, gravity, pregnancy, and aging. In this procedure, apart from removing the excess tissue, excess skin is also removed. So, the breasts are more upright with or without the bras.
There are different options in the application of breast lifting procedure. To decide these, you should consult with your doctor and convey your full expectations. Your doctor will decide the most appropriate one considering your general condition and expectations. The applied procedure options are as follows:
Vertical (Lollipop)Technique: In this technique, after forming an incision around the brown (areola) area, it is descended vertically down. The formed incision looks like a lollipop, that’s why this procedure is given this name. In this procedure, flaccid tissues are removed, and the areola is repositioned. Implant may also be used in this technique. It can be said that this is the most preferred procedure.
Reverse T (Anchor) Technique: After going vertically down the areola, an incision is formed as a reverse T. Excess tissue is removed and areola is repositioned.
Periareolar (Donut) Technique: This is more preferred as it leaves less marks.
The success of breast lifting procedure is high, but after the process, women may think their breasts are smaller. The reason is that the sagged breast seems to be larger than normal. If there are such concerns at this point, breast enlargement procedure may be combined with this procedure.
