Breast implant surgery has the smallest scar among all other breast surgeries.

Pink scars appear in the first postoperative period and almost disappear completely within 6-12 months. These scars are hardly seen in white women.

  1.  Will the women be able to breastfeed after breast implant surgery?

Breast implant surgery has no risk in this regard.

  1. Is breast implant surgery painful?

Pain in breast implant surgery is related to the body structure of the woman and the area where the implant is placed. Post-op pain can be easily controlled with simple painkillers and it’s significantly reduced within a day or two.

The cause of the pain is not the incision or suture, but the tension occurred by the placed breast implant on the surrounding tissues.

If the breast implant is placed under the tissue, the pain is less after the operation, but if it is placed under the muscles, there will be more pain, especially during the first two days after the operation. This pain can be minimized by following the doctor’s instructions.
