Breast Augmentation Surgery In Iran


Breast augmentation or augmentation mammaplasty is a plastic surgery to increase breast size. Breast Augmentation Surgery is one of the most popular and favored types of plastic surgery these days.


Who needs breast augmentation surgery?

Breasts are one of the important parts of a woman's body. If somebody is unsatisfied with her breasts it may have negative effects on her confidence or body-image. In addition, maybe clothes do not fit the body well just because of this problem, something that can be easily solved by this plastic surgery.  


 A lot of factors can affect the size or shape of the breast, such as:

·         aging

·         Weight gain or loss

·         Genetics


Unquestionably, there are some women who without having the factors above, would prefer to have larger or better-shaped breasts. Therefore, getting breast implants can help them have their ideal appearance and most probably improves their self-confidence.



Breast implants: Salin or silicone?

There are two main types of implants that you can get. Silicone and saline.

ü  Saline implants

These breast implants are made of a silicone rubber shell and are filled with sterile saline solution (salt water). They are filled in the operating room, so they can be modified, in terms of their size and shape.

ü  Silicone implants

Silicone implants, as their name suggests, have silicone gel, and they are like tissue breasts, and they even move like tissue breasts. Gel implants are prefilled, and they can't be modified in size in the operating room.

Both these types of silicons have their own benefits. The patients as an example have reported that silicone implants look more natural over time. On the other hand for saline implants, smaller incisions are required.


In terms of the shape of implants, there are two types: teardrop and round. The decision for the shape is to be made utterly by the patient. The plastic surgeon, however, can make some suggestions in this regard, according to a patient’s weight, chest contour, and body type.


Breast augmentation: the scars

Four following options can happen:

·         Underneath the breasts (Inframammary)

·         In the navel

·         Near the armpit (Transaxillary)

·         Around the nipple (Periareolar)

Generally, the surgery’s type of scars depends on many factors like the surgeon’s technique, type of implant, how much extension is involved, and the patient’s anatomy.


Postoperative care

After the breast augmentation surgery, the patient should be able to go home after 2 or 4 hours on the same day, wearing a postsurgical bra. If it is needed the doctor may prescribe painkillers for a couple of days. Before resuming the regular daily activities, it would be recommended for the patients to rest for a few days.


The most common type of incision used to place a prosthesis is an incision under the breast because it is very easy to access and the surgeon can easily place the prosthesis in the breast tissue.

If the necessary care after breast prosthesis surgery is not fully observed, it can include complications, some of which are mentioned below: infection, rupture or leakage of the prosthesis, formation of a hard capsule around the breast, displacement of the prosthesis

Breast prosthesis surgery does not prevent breastfeeding, but it is recommended that the breast prosthesis be placed under the muscular wall of the chest so that there is no problem in breastfeeding the baby in the future.

No. It is not possible for prostheses to leak into breast milk.

Breastfeeding and pregnant women should do this after completing their breastfeeding and delivery process. This will make them get the best results.
