Breast Augmentation Myths Debunked

Do you know everything there is to know about breast augmentation? There are a lot of myths, half-truths, and misunderstandings circulating about this popular procedure. Many of our patients are surprised to learn that they don’t know as much about breast augmentation as they thought. Let’s clear up some of the most common breast augmentation myths. Have you heard any of these?

Breast Augmentation Myth #1 – Your Breasts Will Look Fake After Breast Augmentation

The next time you’re out and about, take a few minutes and look around. Can you spot a woman who has had breast augmentation? Many people assume that it is always easy to spot a woman with breast implants. While some women do look fake and overdone, the vast majority of women look very natural after breast augmentation—so much so that you’d never know unless they told you. At Hunstad Kortesis Bharti Plastic Surgery + MedSpa, we pride ourselves in creating natural looking breast augmentation results.

Breast Augmentation Myth #2 – Big Breasts Are a Requirement After Breast Augmentation

What do your ideal breasts look like? Are they big, small, or somewhere in between? The goal of breast augmentation is creating your ideal body shape. There isn’t any one cookie-cutter breast size after breast augmentation. During your consultation, we’ll talk with you about your options and work with you to create your ideal breasts. We even use Vectra 3D Imaging so you can see your new breasts before surgery. Get the figure you’ve always envisioned. We will customize your results based on your goals.

Breast Augmentation Myth #3 – Silicone Implants Are Always Best

When it comes to implants, you’ve got options. We offer a variety of implant options, including saline and silicone. These implants come in different shapes and sizes. Many women assume that silicone implants are always best but, in reality, each type of implant has distinct advantages. We’ll talk with you about all of your options, make some recommendations, and help you choose the right implants. Ultimately we aim to educate you to understand all of your options so that you can make an informed decision as to which implant will suit you best.

Breast Augmentation Myth #4 – You Should Wait Until After Having Children to Get Implants

Pregnancy can lead to some unwanted breast changes. Many women believe that they must wait until after they’ve finished having children to get breast implants in order to avoid sagging. The truth is, if you’re going to have sagging after pregnancy, it will happen whether you have implants or not. If you’re planning a pregnancy soon, it may be best to wait, but waiting until after pregnancy isn’t always the best choice. Many women get implants in their late teens and early 20s and enjoy them for years before ever having children. If you’re thinking about implants, talk to us. We can help you decide if you should get implants now or wait until later.
