Breast / Breast Augmentation
1-5 days with restrictions for up to 6 weeks
A better silhouette for a more confident you.
Turkle & Associates is the premier provider of breast augmentations in Indianapolis. Patients from across the state travel to see Dr. Turkle and her expert medical staff!
There are a variety of reasons a patient may choose to get a breast augmentation. Whether you’re looking to balance your overall figure, enhance your cleavage, even out breast size, or reconstruct breasts after another surgery, our experienced surgeon can help.
During a breast augmentation, we use a breast implant (made from either saline, silicone gel, soft-touch, or cohesive gel implants) to shape and increase the size of the breast.

How It Works
What To Expect
Whether you’re traveling from out of town or are local to the Indianapolis community, Turkle & Associates is dedicated to your patient experience. From your first phone call to your final follow-up, our team will ensure your total comfort and safety.
During your initial consultation for augmentation in Indianapolis, we will fully detail how breast augmentation works. After all, we want you to be fully informed so you feel comfortable in our care!
An in-depth consultation will precede your breast augmentation in Indianapolis to help you understand the procedure, recovery time, and expected results. We will discuss your overall lifestyle, budget, and medical history. From there, we’ll create a care plan that works best for you.
We will also review the recovery process with you in advance so you know how and when to schedule your surgery for a time that works best for your overall lifestyle and upcoming schedule.
Visualizing Your Results
We find many patients have trouble visualizing what their final surgical result will look like and some patients find it difficult to precisely communicate their goals from breast augmentation. In addition, talking about cup size can be daunting as there is no standardization of cup size in the bra industry.
To bridge the gap, we use VECTRA 3D Imaging which provides a general simulation of what you might expect from your surgery.
Surgery and Recovery
Before your surgery Dr. Turkle will talk you through the details of your treatment plan. Breast augmentation is an outpatient procedure and the surgery takes about 1 hour.
After your surgery, you’ll receive detailed aftercare instructions to ensure proper healing. You’ll need to avoid strenuous activities for up to 6 weeks and you’ll need to plan for 1 to 5 days of recovery at home.
Vectra 3D Imaging
We strive to equip each of our patients with a full understanding of the procedure, anticipated results, and potential deterring factors. That’s why we offer complimentary Vectra 3D imaging during your consultation. Vectra gives you the unique capability to truly see what you would look like with your intended implants.
The Vectra scans your body and simulates imaging of expected results, allowing you to see exactly what you’ll look like after surgery. This innovative technology gives you the confidence to make your final decisions about implant types and size.
Our patients tell us that after a breast augmentation in Indianapolis, they feel much more confident in their overall appearance and are happy with their new silhouette. They also find that their bras and other clothes fit much better than before!
Results are highly individualized. This is because we are able to personalize your surgery to match your vision for breasts. Generally, though, after healing is complete, you can expect larger, firmer, and more aesthetically pleasing breasts.

The Breast Implant Recovery Process
On average, patients take 6 to 8 weeks to recover from their breast augmentation in Indianapolis. The timeline below can give you a general idea of what to expect from immediately after surgery to 2 months post op.
Immediately After Surgery
You’ll spend a couple of hours in a recovery room after your procedure before we send you home. This allows you to wake from the anesthesia and receive your aftercare instructions. You need to have someone to drive you home.
Days 1 to 3
It’s important to rest and take it easy during this time. Refrain from lifting your arms and other unnecessary activities. We’ll prescribe medication to help with pain management.
Days 3 to 5
The majority of your discomfort should be subsiding, although you may still feel some slight pain. By day 5 you should be feeling closer to normal.
Most patients are able to return to work by the second or third week after their surgery. You should continue to avoid strenuous exercise and activities during this time as your body regains its strength. Light walking and normal activities are encouraged as you’re able to encourage blood flow and healing.
By 6 to 8 weeks most patients have made a full recovery and the breast implants have fully settled into their proper position. We take a second set of “after” photos at the 6 weeks mark and again at 6 months.
