Common Myths About Breast Augmentation

Consistently one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries performedbreast augmentation is highly sought after. Yet, despite its popularity, this cosmetic surgery has widespread misconceptions.

To better understand breast augmentation and to help you make a more informed decision, learn the common myths about breast augmentation.

People Are Rarely Satisfied With Their Results

Considering studies, such as one published in the International Journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, which reported 86% overall patient satisfaction, it’s a myth to think that people are rarely happy with their results.

In fact, even of the few who decided to alter or remove their augmentations, the same study that followed nearly 500 patients reported 100 percent psychological well-being.

Breast Augmentations Change the Position of Your Breasts

The goal of breast augmentation surgery is to alter the shape and appearance of your breasts, which can give the appearance that your breasts have changed position, such as appearing higher on your chest. However, breast augmentations do notalter the position of your breasts.

The only procedure that changes the position of your breasts is a breast lift. In the event of a breast augmentation, your surgeon may also recommend a breast lift. Ensure you speak to your surgeon to understand what procedures you could benefit from to receive the desired results.

You Will Have To Change Your Implants Often

Whether you get silicone or saline implants, both are designed to be long-lasting. Implants can last up to 20 years and, in some cases, can last even longer with proper care and management.

Make sure you have a checkup with imaging every few years to ensure the proper health of your implants.
