The size, shape and balance of a woman’s breasts can drastically affect their self-image. Breasts can symbolise femininity and sexuality, so uneven or small breasts can have a lasting effect on confidence and esteem, but breast enlargement surgery in Turkey provides a solution.
Breast enlargement involves inserting an implant behind the breast tissue using a small incision to craft a more even and fuller breast. Implants have become synonymous with the celebrity lifestyle, however more and more women are turning to breast enlargement as a solution to asymmetry, or to subtly increase their cup size and gain a better self-image. Breasts can change for a number of reasons, including:
- Hormonal And Weight Changes During Pregnancy
- Changes To Breast Volume After Breast Feeding
- Drastic Or Gradual Weight Changes That Affect The Breasts
- Reduced Volume As A Result Of Cancer Or Other Illnesses That Affect The Breasts
These changes can cause women to suffer reduced confidence or difficulty in feeling comfortable in their skin. Alongside wanting to increase cup size, a boob job in Turkey can provide a surgical solution to these issues by using silicone or saline implants in either a round, or tear-drop shape.
Saline implants are filled with a sterilised saline solution and are more easily adjusted and changed to cater to pre-arranged or amended sizing throughout the surgery. They can be filled throughout the procedure too, making them the most flexible choice, offering balanced and accurate results. Additionally, should a saline implant rupture, the solution will be easily dissolved into your body with no ill effects. However, they offer a firmer and less natural feel and may wrinkle over time.
Silicone implants are filled with a soft gel and come pre-filled before your surgery. They are less likely to wrinkle than a saline implant and due to their cohesive nature, offer a more natural look and feel as they move and sit in a similar way to human breast tissue. These can require a larger incision due to their firmer structure but are renowned for the longer-lasting results.
Both types of implants can be offered in both round and teardrop shapes when opting for breast enlargement in Turkey at one of our clinics in Istanbul and Izmir. A discussion with your consultant can help you to determine the right shape and type to suit your desired outcome and your body type, ensuring that you are fully satisfied and confident in the results after your surgery.

What Is Involved In A Breast Enlargement In Turkey?
At Longevita, we have years’ of experience in providing breast enlargement surgery in Turkey. This common procedure will be conducted by our ISAPS (International Society Of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery) accredited surgeons at our clinics in Istanbul and Izmir, where you will be met by both your allocated plastic surgeon and a dedicated host.
During this meeting, you will discuss the breast enlargement procedure with the doctor, through which you can find out every detail and ask any questions that you may have. Following this, they will examine you ahead of the surgery to better determine the shape, size and type of implant that will be most suitable for you. You will have the opportunity to discuss this and any expectations you have, after which you can choose to pay the remaining balance and sign the forms of consent.
After undergoing a number of simple tests to determine whether you’re medically fit to have the surgery, you will then be put under a general anaesthetic.
The surgery lasts for around two to three hours depending on your requirements, and you will be required to stay overnight following the surgery to ensure that a doctor is on hand to monitor you throughout the night and change any bandages.
Your plastic surgeon will remain on hand throughout the following few days for checks on the second and fourth days, however, you can leave the hospital to rest in your hotel room on the second day. You can also take part in any relaxing activities or opportunities around your hotel and travel around either Istanbul or Izmir, depending on your chosen clinic, to experience the charms of these Turkish cities.
After the fourth day and your visit to the doctor’s private clinic to remove the drainage and change the dressing, you’ll be given a full aftercare plan including medication, what activities you can do and any other advice depending on your case. After this, you can choose to fly home, where you will remain in contact with our doctors throughout the healing process, or stay in Turkey for a few more days to enjoy the break.
If you experience any side effects or the manifestation of any risks once you have returned home, you can get in touch and visit a private clinic in the UK as part of your aftercare treatment. Some of the risks of breast enlargement procedures include:
- Poor Healing
- Changes In Sensation In Your Breasts And Nipples

What is Breast Enlargement?
Breasts are the most important features of female body because they symbolize femininity and sexuality. Small breasts may have a direct impact on self-confidence and self-esteem. Breast enlargement surgery brings a solution to those who want bigger breasts. Underdeveloped breasts, differences in breast sizes, changes after pregnancy or changes in appearance due to breast-feeding are some reasons women go ahead with breast enlargement. One may also just want to make her breasts look fuller and bigger. Breast enlargement surgery, also called augmentation mammoplasty or boob job, is therefore one of the most performed medical procedures in the world. It increases the size, form and symmetry of breasts.
Breast Enlargement is performed to increase the size of small breasts or breasts which are not developed completely. Mammoplasty may also bring back and enlarge breast volume if it has diminished as a result of pregnancy and breast-feeding. Breast implants can serve for a number of purposes; breast cancer patients may undergo boob job surgery for reconstructive purposes after mastectomy or women with asymmetrical breasts may have a single breast implant to balance the differences in size. All women over 22 years old seeking cosmetic boob jobs may choose silicone breast implants.
Breast Enlargement Treatment Options
The size and the type of breast implants in Turkey will be determined by the patient’s preference, body shape, weight, breast tissue. Breast implant alternatives are:
- Saline breast implants: Filled with salty water which is sterilized, saline implants can be filled to fit a prearranged size. Saline can also be filled during breast surgery to avoid major modifications in breast implant size.
- Silicone filled breast implants: Filled with soft, elastic gel, silicone breast implants are pre-filled and may need a longer cut to be placed.
How Breast Enlargement is Performed
Breast enlargement surgery takes about 2 hours. The appropriate size, the area of incisions and the placement of implants whether it would be on top of or underneath the chest muscle will be jointly decided by the patient and the plastic surgeon. General anaesthesia or intravenous sedation is applied before the breast surgery. The plastic surgeon advises on the suitable type of anaesthesia for each patient. Cuts are made in unremarkable sites in order to minimise visible scarring. Patients have three options for incision sites. Inframammary incision is made under the breast border. The one which is done under the armpit is called transaxillary incision. Per areolar incision is made around the nipple area. Before the surgery, patient and the doctor decides on type of the breast implant and the plastic surgeon decides on the location of the cuts. Layered sutures are used to close incisions. Skin adhesive or surgical tape may also be used. Incision lines will disappear over time.
Results of Breast Enlargement
Results of the boob job in Turkey can immediately be seen. Post-surgical inflammation and incision lines will disappear gradually. The patients may be satisfied with their new boobs as they recover and realise that their aim for fuller breast is accomplished. After breast enhancement surgery, the patient may need to put on surgical dressing that may include support bra or garments. Patients will be given detailed instructions about post-surgical care by plastic surgeons. Patients will be able to walk with their own strength right after boob job in Turkey.

Patients should not twist their upper body by lifting, pushing or pulling anything. The results of breast enhancement are long-lasting.

At this stage, you will have an opportunity to tell the surgeon about breast implant preference and expectations from breast augmentation in Turkey. If you would like to proceed, you will be asked to pay your remaining balance and sign consent forms. You will then have your medical tests and checks to confirm your suitability for breast surgery. The procedure usually lasts for two to three hours. Within an hour after the procedure, anaesthesia will ease and you will regain consciousness. Your doctor performs initial check-up and you stay at the hospital on the first night of breast augmentation surgery.
The second day will be the healing day for you. Your surgeon will perform the second check up in the morning and if everything is okay, you are discharged from the hospital. You will be advised on your medication and provided instructions on the dressing routine and using the medical bra. You will stay in your hotel room and rest as much as possible for the remainder of the day.
You are advised to continue resting in your room on your third day. You should avoid heavy activities but may take a walk or go out for dinner. There are city tours and sightseeing programs available if you want to join.
You visit your doctor’s private clinic for the final check-up, removal of drainage and change of your dressing. Your doctor advises you further on what medications you need to use and what activities you can get involved in over the course of your breast augmentation recovery period. You will be ready to go back home after your fourth day in Turkey.
