Here are the top four misconceptions about breast augmentation:
1. Breast implants feel unnaturally hard
These days there’s a wide range of different breast implants, shapes, sizes and textures. Modern-day breast augmentation is all about natural looking breasts – gone are the days of rock-hard, noticeable implants. An experienced and skilled surgeon like DiGeronimo M.D. Advanced Plastic Surgery will ensure a tailor-made breast implant for each patient to offer the most natural looking and feeling result possible.
2. Women with implants can’t breastfeed
There is no medical evidence to show that breast implants interfere with breastfeeding. The ability to breastfeed successfully varies in all women with or without breast implants.
3. Implants make it difficult to detect breast cancer
It is recommended that all women regularly self-examine their breast for lumps and changes and have an annual examination by a doctor.
Mammography is more difficult for women with breast implants but is well practiced by radiologists. Patients should inform radiologists of breast implants prior to an examination.
4. Everyone can tell when a woman has breast implants
The term ‘breast augmentation’ was once synonymous with large, obviously fake breasts that were often disproportionate to the patient’s build. In recent times, breast augmentation trends have increasingly favored natural-looking enlargements that balance a woman’s figure.
That’s why it is important to choose an experienced surgeon like Dr, DiGeronimo who will not only consider a patient’s desires but also take into account her height, weight, and natural breast size and shape. Choosing an appropriate implant and positioning it correctly are keys to achieving a natural-looking result.
Breast augmentation continues to be a very popular procedure with women across a wide spectrum of demographic groups. Patient satisfaction ratings are high and newer implant designs have led to much-improved implant durability. Seek a board certified plastic surgeon with a lot of experience with the procedure like Dr. DiGeronimo. This will ensure that biodimensional planning will be incorporated into your surgery. Proper implant size selection and insertion are vitally important to ensuring low complication and revision rates. There is no reason to put up with smaller than desired breasts.
