3 Breast Implant Myths That Need to Be Busted

It’s often easier to find misleading and falsified information than it is to find the truth. This is especially true when it comes to plastic surgery. If you are one of the many women interested in undergoing a breast augmentation but confused about the reality of the procedure, the following myth busters will help you set the record straight.

Myth 1: All Implants Look Fake

False! The truth is that you can customize your breast implants to look any way you want. Some patients prefer a firmer, rounder shape for each breast, but many opt to receive innovative silicone implants that mimic the natural slope and feel of real breasts. You will work with your plastic surgeon to make the best choice for your body.

The quality of breast implants is highly influenced by the skill and experience of your plastic surgeon. Surgeons aren’t just doctors, but artists as well. They envision and create new breasts, so the best plastic surgeon knows how to augment breasts to look modestly enhanced within a patient’s existing contours.

Myth 2: Your Implants Need To Be Huge

The Pamela Andersons of the world have created another misconception that all breast augmentation procedures result in unnaturally large breasts, but this is false! The size of the augmentation is completely up to the patient, and the size can be as subtle of an increase as desired. An A-cup can boost to a B-cup, or a C-cup can boost to a D-cup. It’s certainly possible to have breasts that are larger than is natural, but most women opt for subtlety and proportionality.

Myth 3: Augmentation Will Fix Sagging

If you are unhappy with the effects of gravity, weight loss, or pregnancy on your breasts, an augmentation alone cannot fix that sagging appearance. Since a breast augmentation adds size to your existing chest, your breasts will exist in their natural but bigger form. In order to lift sagginess, you need to pair your augmentation with a breast lift. This is very common and extremely effective.
