What is Breast Prosthesis?

Breast prosthesis is an aesthetic application made to correct the shape of the breasts and to eliminate the defects in the breast area. Especially women with small breasts may prefer breast prosthesis to make their breasts look fuller and more attractive.

Silicone materials are mostly used in breast prosthesis. The structure, type and size of the prosthesis to be used are determined according to the structure of the woman. For this reason, in breast prosthesis surgeries, we can say that the process is special for each woman. For this reason, the pain felt after surgery and the postoperative recovery process vary from person to person. Some of our patients can return to daily life in a short time. In some people, limitation in arm movements, pain and edema may occur. In this case, with the help of physical therapy, the hardened tissues after the operation can be softened, and this process can be overcome more easily.

The most common complaints we encounter after breast prosthesis surgeries are pain and edema. As the tissues begin to heal, pain and edema also decrease. Many patients can return to their daily lives in about 1 week. However, in some people, especially if the application is made under the muscle, this process may be longer and more challenging. There may be limitation in arm movements, arm and back pain. In order to reduce these complaints, rehabilitation can be done after breast prosthesis.
