Common Myths About Breast Augmentation

There are plenty of myths surrounding breast augmentation. Some are more commonly-known than others, but more often than not, they’re just that – myths. Some of the more common myths surrounding breast augmentation have to do with visual appearance, while others are more concerned with internal health as a result of breast augmentation.

Will people know if I’ve had breast augmentation?

One of the more popular myths is that people will be able to tell when a patient has undergone breast augmentation surgery. More often than not, this is totally inaccurate as a skilled plastic surgeon will be able to provide you with natural-looking results.

Is there a best spot for breast augmentation incisions?

Every incision is different and the best possible spot for an incision is where it will fade into a line. If properly done, an incision mark will fade right into the crease along the underside of the breast.

How do I know which type of breast implant is right for me?

While it is important for surgeons to provide patients with the figure they’ve always wanted, it’s also important for the patient to bring in references as to what kind of breasts they’re looking for. It’s also important to understand the different outcomes of breast augmentation based on size and volume of the implants themselves.

Are breast implants dangerous?

While there could be an issue with breast implants becoming hard or distorted, there is no connection between breast implants and any recurring illness.

How painful is breast augmentation surgery?

When properly performed, breast augmentation surgery is relatively painless. During recovery, an individual can typically return to their regular routine within just a few days. Choosing the right doctor is a step in the right direction when minimizing the recovery process.
