  In today’s world, where the understanding of aesthetics and beauty changes every year and social media has a great place in our lives, aesthetic surgeries also come to the fore.  Operations, which are preferred by women in order to enlarge breast tissue, are now performed in many different ways.  Silicon removal surgeries, as well as silicone or prosthesis placement surgeries, are frequently applied today. There may be many reasons for the removal of breast prostheses. These:

-Silicone being damaged and liquid flowing inside,

-Silicone hurts the patient, creates a feeling of discomfort,

-The size of the placed silicone does not satisfy the patient, it is large/small,

-The occurrence of deformations in the silicone due to external or internal reasons,

-The need to remove the silicones due to a systemic problem of the patient,

 Silicone removal surgeries are performed due to factors such as the patient who has used the same silicone for 15 years or more senses the need to renew the silicones.

Silicone removal surgery is much more advantageous than operations where breast implants are placed. Both the recovery time of the patient after the operation is shortened and the operation is shorter. There is no problem especially in operations that are planned to be removed and placed in people who do not have much breast tissue. If preferred, fat tissue transfer is performed instead of silicone removal surgery.

In silicone removal surgery, a planning is made according to the size of the breast and the area where the incision was made before in order to avoid a second suture scar. The procedure is performed by making an incision under the breast, armpit, and nipple.


  Before the operation: One of the most important factors is the correct communication between the patient and the doctor before the operation. The patient’s expectation from the doctor, his medical history, medical records of the silicone he has had before, the drugs or supplements used, food or drug allergies should be carefully transferred to the relevant doctor. Then, before the operation, blood tests for control purposes should be performed, and any roughness that may occur should be minimized.

  Then, considering the patient’s expectation, detailed breast control is provided and the stages of the procedure are transferred to the patient. How much of the patient’s expectations can be realized, complications and side effects that may occur are clearly conveyed.

 -After deciding on the operation, it is recommended that the patient avoid alcohol, cigarettes and blood thinners during the period before the operation.

  Post-operatively: After the operation, patients are usually rested in the hospital for one night, and the patients are kept under control. After discharge, patients return to their normal lives within a few days. It is recommended that patients minimize post-operative swelling by walking and consuming plenty of fluids.

  Due to the risk of bleeding that may occur after silicone removal surgery, in some cases, a drain is placed in patients and kept for about 1-2 days. After its removal, the healing of the breast tissue begins and it reaches its original appearance within a few weeks.

  It is important not to do heavy sports and not to lift loads, especially for 1 month after the surgery. In addition, just like in liposuction surgeries, wearing a tight corset/bra after the operation plays a major role in healing the area and achieving a tight appearance.
