Breast augmentation surgery is one of the most popular and frequently performed cosmetic surgery procedures. It is an effective procedure for enhancing the shape and size of breasts. However, with an increase in its popularity, the myths and misconceptions about the procedure have also increased. The breast augmentation myths negatively affect the patient’s decision of undergoing the surgery and become the reason for their hesitation.
Here we will discuss the top 5 myths about breast augmentation procedure that you should not believe.
It is a common misconception that breast implants need replacement after every few years but it is not the case. As long as the implants are soft and the patient is satisfied with their appearance, they do not require replacement. However, the patient must be prepared for surgery in case of implant ruptures. If the implants require a lift or change in the size, surgery will be needed. Some plastic surgeons recommend replacing implants after ten years but the FDA has approved breast implants as lifetime devices.
It is another misconception that women can’t breastfeed with breast implants. The patient may lose the ability to breastfeed but it occurs in very rare cases. Moreover, it depends on the technique used for the surgery. There are two commonly used techniques for making incisions in breast augmentation:
It is also a common breast augmentation myth that after having breast implants, you cannot have successful mammograms. Breast implants do not have any impact on mammograms. For successful mammograms, the technician needs to take several pictures to make sure that the entire breast has been imaged.
Breast augmentation surgery gives effective results, but it takes some time for the successful desired results to appear. Immediately after the surgery, your breasts will be swollen and bruised and these symptoms require time to subside completely. You will get the final results after the implants properly settle into their places.
It is a huge misconception that breast augmentation always gives a fake and unnatural appearance to the breasts. It may occur in some cases but generally, the procedure results in natural-looking appearance, especially when silicone implants are used. Other factors like the number of breast tissues and the position and shape of breast implants also affect the outcomes. So, discussing these issues with the plastic surgeon is important to get successful natural-looking results.
