You’re no longer in sixth grade, so stuffing your bra with tissues to have bigger breasts isn’t the best solution. Breast augmentation, also known as breast implant surgery, has become one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures for women seeking larger breasts. However, the procedure is often misrepresented by myths, so we’re here to bust them once and for all.
Myth #1: Breast Augmentation Creates a Fake “Barbie” Appearance
False! This is a major misconception about breast implants due to stars like Pamela Anderson who select implants far out of proportion with their bodies. The truth is that breast implants can be placed, position, and sized in a way that naturally enhances your figure. Many people may not even realize you have implants; they’ll just notice that you look better than ever! The surgeon that you select to complete your augmentation is key, since he will combine the art and science of implant surgery to create a natural an attractive look on your body. Furthermore, implant technology is now so advanced that the majority of saline implants mimic the exact look and feel of real breasts.
Myth #2: Breast Implants Will Eliminate Sagging
Unfortunately, this is one thing that breast augmentation cannot do. If you are frustrated by drooping and sagging breasts, your implants cannot fix that problem; they will simply make your breasts larger in their current position. If you want perkier breasts, you need to combine your augmentation with a breast lift procedure. This is incredibly common! A breast lift will remove excess skin to lift your breasts up into a more youthful and perky position. Implants can then be added to boost the size of your chest.
Myth #3: You’ll Have to Replace Your Implants Frequently
Permanent implants have yet to be developed, but the high-tech innovations of today can last at least 20 years while still looking and feeling soft and natural. They don’t need to be replaced unless a problem occurs. Leakage is the most common problem, but fortunately it isn’t dangerous! If one of your implant leaks, you can simply return to your plastic surgeon for a replacement.
