Silicone is a chemical substance that has the least reaction to the human body and environment, which we encounter quite often in medicine and in our daily lives. It is available in 3 different forms: solid, gel and liquid. The type of silicone that is popularly known as harmful is liquid silicone, and the use of their injections was banned in 1996.

Silicone prostheses used in breast augmentation operations; the contents of which have a wall of solid silicone outside are in the form of saline or gel silicone. Some companies use silicone coated with titanium outside. Saline breast silicone implants undergo some volume loss over time. In addition, silicone gel-containing silicone prostheses experience much less volume loss, while the technology of silicone breast prostheses has emerged with the development of Istanbul cohesive gel silicone prostheses. The gel in these silicone prostheses does not go outside the silicone prosthesis, does not lose volume, does not migrate outside even if the prosthesis is cut. In addition, silicone breast implants can be classified as round, drop (anatomical) and asymmetric silicone implants. Drop silicone prostheses may have rotation problems at the site of surgery. Buddha creates disfigurement in the breasts of patients. Another feature of silicone breast implants is that their surface is flat or textured. The fact that rough silicone prostheses cause less capsular contraction is often the reason for use. Determining the volume of silicone prosthesis to be used in surgery is one of the most difficult issues.

The best method is to try putting different prosthetics in your bra. In this way, you can understand how bent your breasts will be as a result of the operation. Silicone prostheses are expressed in size according to their volume.

The most commonly used silicone breast implants are those between 250-375 cc. It is possible to conduct experiments with prostheses for the determination of the prosthesis to be used in operations. The most preferred silicone breast implants around the world are Mentor, Mc Ghan, Natrella brand silicone. You can get more detailed information about the brand of silicone from your doctor.


Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure in which a person’s expectations of which type of prosthesis will be preferred, how they want to carry the shape of the breast in their body, and the doctor’s opinions and recommendations are related. However, the reasons for choosing anatomical prostheses in the general framework can be listed as follows;

People who want to get the shape of drops in the breasts prefer anatomical prostheses.

In patients whose breast is not in a pronounced state and whose weight is extremely low, the use of a cohesive and round prosthesis can reveal an unnatural transitional image in the upper part of the chest. This is an undesirable condition in terms of ensuring an aesthetic and natural appearance on the breasts. In such cases, it would be the right choice to use anatomical prostheses under the novelties.

In cases where the patient’s nipple is slightly saggy, it is intended to lift the nipples upwards. In such cases, the patient’s need for breast collection surgery can be reduced to a minimum by means of anatomical prosthetics.


As mentioned above, what type of prosthesis will be preferred in breast augmentation surgeries is related to the expectations of the person, how he wants to carry the shape of the breast in his body, and the opinions and recommendations of the doctor. However, the reasons for choosing round prostheses in the general frame can be listed as follows;

A round prosthesis is preferred in patients who are actively engaged in tennis, swimming, rowing and similar sports, and in patients who will be implanted under novelties. If anatomical prosthesis is used in breast augmentation surgery in these patients, the possibility of the prosthesis being applied to the outside as a result of muscle movements that occur in relation to the sports performed by the person may lead to the appearance of asymmetry in the breasts. Even if round prostheses rotate due to this type of muscle movement, this condition may not present situations that will have a negative and undesirable effect on the breasts.

If the patient is to be combined with breast augmentation surgery, round prostheses are preferred to breast augmentation surgery in order to fill the gaps located in the upper parts of the patient’s chest area and give the patient’s breasts a more aesthetic and fuller image.


During the operation process, an entry point should be opened in the body for the placement of the prosthesis first. This spot should be small, leave little trace and not cause additional problems. Currently, the entrance methods used are the nipple, under the breast, under the armpit, and under the belly button. This choice can vary depending on the patient’s condition, the prosthesis to be used, and the physician’s preference. The operation is performed under general anesthesia and lasts about 1-2 hours. There is no need to remove stitches after surgery. Care should be taken not to open bandages for 3-4 days after surgery.


The type, brand and model of silicone are the main determining criteria in 2021 prices of silicone breast implants. You should contact Turkey Medicals medical desk for more detailed information about the 2021 prices of silicone breast implants in Turkey.
