Common Breast Augmentation Myths Debunked

Perfect,Body,Of,Young,Woman,On,A,White,Background,InBreast augmentation is a common type of plastic surgery. It positively enhances the lives of women who would like to either restore their breast volume, increase their breast size, or provide symmetry to the breasts. Dr. Charlotte Ann Rhee MD in Huntington Station, NY, is a board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon. She understands the immense benefits of breast augmentation and knows the practical outcome patients should expect. To ensure that you are informed about this procedure and its many benefits, consider the following common myths about this procedure and the reality behind these myths.

Myth 1: Breast Implants Must Be Replaced Often

Breast implants don’t last forever. That is true, but it is a myth that they have to be replaced extremely quickly. Many women enjoy their breast implants for ten years or longer before they need to make any changes. In reality, of the hundreds of thousands of women who have breast augmentation performed yearly, most individuals have an extremely high satisfaction rate months and even years after their procedure.

Myth 2: Breast Implants Are Dangerous

Today’s silicone and saline implants are being used with great success, with minimal to no issues for the patient. That being said, breast augmentation is still surgery and, therefore, does have some risks, but it is overall an extremely safe procedure. If you choose to get breast augmentation, all your risk factors will be outlined by Dr. Rhee before your procedure.

Myth 3: Breast Augmentation Only Makes Your Breasts Larger

While many assume breast augmentation is all about increased size (and it can be), it’s also about balancing asymmetrical breasts, improving the appearance of cleavage, and creating a more youthful, lifted feel to aging breasts. These all enhance the self-esteem of patients in most cases. In this light, breast augmentation is much more than simply increasing breast size.
