Breast Augmentation Risk Myths

Breast Augmentation Risk Myths

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), Breast augmentation is currently the most sought-after cosmetic plastic surgery in the United States. But as the number of people going for this procedure continues to grow, so do the number of myths. These myths discourage people from getting a breast augmentation and hurt the overall image of plastic surgery. This article will debunk the most common breast augmentation risk myths.

Myth 1: Your Breast Will Look Fake After Breast Augmentation

With the current advances in plastic surgery, plastic surgeons can now do breast augmentation without altering the natural appearance of your breasts. These techniques have made it almost impossible to tell the difference between enhanced breasts and natural breasts. Since patients’ bodies are not the same, plastic surgeon, have to tailor each breast augmentation procedure to the specific needs of every patient. They have to consider important factors such as your profile, placement, lifestyle, and measurements.

Myth 2: Your Breast Will Feel Fake After Breast Augmentation

Apart from the inventive medical apparatus used in modern plastic surgery, the latest implant materials are also created to look and feel almost the same as natural body tissue. Therefore, you can rest assured to get breast implants that feel like your natural breasts. Plastic surgeons also know how to place them under your chest muscle and prevent the growth of scar tissue from keeping the implants feeling soft and natural.

Myth 3: You Will Lose Breast Sensation After Breast Augmentation

Although some patients will experience loss of nipple sensation after the surgery, the sensation will return after a few months once the nerves heal and adjust to your new breast size. It is very rare to lose your nipple sensation permanently after breast augmentation. However, you have to ensure that the plastic surgeon you choose for this procedure is qualified and has the needed experience to perform it safely.

Myth 4: You Can’t Breastfeed with Breast Implants

Just because you have breast implants doesn’t mean you can’t breastfeed. However, it is important to note that some breast augmentation procedures make breastfeeding easier than others.

Myth 5: You Will Have to Replace Your Breast Implants Often

Breast implants don’t have to be replaced if they are working perfectly. You can have the same breast implants for over 20 years and still look and feel soft and natural. The main reason why you may have to replace your breast implants is leakage.
