Breast Implant Myths

woman breast for surgery of breast implantMyths have a way of living on and on, even if they simply aren’t true. If you are considering breast implants, things you’ve heard about this procedure over the years have no doubt been on your mind. Read on for more information about breast implants, and why some of the things you’ve heard simply aren’t true.

Myth #1: You can’t breastfeed after you get implants

For the majority of patients, the ability to produce milk is not affected by implants, which can be placed in such a way as to not interfere with mammary glands or milk ducts.

Myth #2: Breast implants aren’t safe

This may be what concerns women the most, and for good reason. However, thousands of women get breast implants every year and live with them for years with no problems. Please feel free to ask your doctor about the risks involved and discuss your concerns with him or her.

Myth #3: They will need to be replaced in a few years

Breast implants are made to last. They may need to be replaced over time, but some women’s implants last for decades with no problems.

Myth #4: They will look obviously fake

You may not want implants because you are concerned they won’t look natural. However, with the right surgeon, the right implants, and the right technique, you can have implants that look natural and beautiful.

Myth #5: Breast implant surgery is painful and recovery is hard

The thought of the pain and downtime involved in a surgical procedure may be the reason you have decided against a breast implant procedure. However, recovery from this type of procedure is not as difficult as you might think. Most patients report only discomfort, not pain, and recovery typically only takes about 2 to 4 weeks.
