 Aesthetic Applications Are Safer in Experienced Hands

Appearance is an important factor that affects a person’s career and future due to the positive perception at first glance.

It is possible to get near-perfect results, especially thanks to the developing techniques and the superior health services offered.

Appearance plays a crucial role in personal and professional success. With advanced techniques and superior health services, aesthetic problems can now be addressed more effectively and safely.

Prof. Bülent Saçak, a professor of Aesthetic, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at Acıbadem Ataşehir Hospital, has been performing reconstructive and aesthetic procedures for 20 years. In addition to breast surgery, which is among the most frequently performed aesthetic procedures, he also specializes in facial rejuvenation, rhinoplasty, and body shaping. Prof. Saçak shares insights about breast surgery, rhinoplasty, and liposuction.

Breast Surgeries: Augmentation, Lift, Reduction

Breast surgery is a broad term encompassing all breast surgeries for “RECONSTRUCTIVE” or “AESTHETIC” purposes.

  • Reconstruction Surgeries involve reconstructing the breast tissue, which can be done immediately during breast cancer surgery or later if needed.
  • Breast Aesthetics aims to improve the breast’s shape and form and can be performed on patients aged 18 and over.
  • Aesthetic breast surgery includes various procedures:
  • Breast Augmentation Mammoplasty increases the breast volume using silicone prostheses or fat grafts.
  • Breast Lift (Mastopexy) corrects sagging and improves shape without significantly changing volume.
  • Breast Reduction Surgery reduces the breast volume to alleviate complaints like neck pain and skin problems.
  • These surgeries are generally simple and painless, with a hospital stay usually not exceeding one night. Early post-operative care lasts for 7-10 days, and full functionality is typically regained within three weeks.

From breast augmentation to rhinoplasty and liposuction, Prof. Bülent Saçak at Acıbadem Ataşehir Hospital shares expert insights on achieving near-perfect aesthetic results.

Rhinoplasty: Nose Remodeling

Rhinoplasty reshapes the nose to harmonize with the face and can address airway issues. Suitable for patients over 18, it is preferred before the age of 30 due to the cartilage’s flexibility and patient satisfaction rates.

Hospital stay is generally one night, with dressing removed after a week. Recovery allows a return to work within 10-14 days. While rhinoplasty is safe, it’s sensitive, and up to 15% of patients might seek revision surgery.

Liposuction: Body Shaping

Liposuction is for body shaping, not weight loss, removing subcutaneous fat to enhance body contour. Suitable for patients over 18 without co-morbid diseases, it can be combined with other procedures like abdominoplasty.

Patients are often discharged the same or the next day, wearing pressure garments for up to three weeks to reduce swelling. Complications are rare, with bruising and minor pain being the most common.

For a Successful Aesthetic Surgery Process

Patient safety is crucial in aesthetic surgery. Contact your surgeon, discuss details, highlight complaints and expectations. Ensure your surgery is done in a comprehensive health facility with an experienced anesthesia team and dedicated nursing staff. Post-surgery accessibility to your physician is also essential.

By following these guidelines, you can achieve satisfactory results in your aesthetic journey with the safety and support you need.
