Not every woman is naturally blessed with a well endowed bosom. Possessing the perfect size and shape of breasts is every woman’s dream. Over the last decade, breast augmentation surgery to enhance the size and the shape of breasts has taken the world by storm. Silicone or saline implants are surgically placed within the chest to naturally increase the size and better the shape of the breasts.
However, scary myths that surround this life-changing surgery prevent women from taking that final step to having the bosom that they dream of. Listed below are some of the common myths surrounding breast augmentation surgery.
Various Breast Augmentation Myths
Implants Do Not look and Feel Natural
This is the biggest myth of all. Breast augmentation surgery can leave the breasts looking bigger, fuller and feeling soft and natural. For a natural look, it is necessary to take the size of the woman’s chest into consideration. Women with a narrow chest should not opt for very large implants as this will only make it look unnatural. Also, it is important that the implants are not placed very high up in the chest.
The height and weight of the woman are important factors that need to be considered as well. If the implants are placed in front of the muscle, they lend a very unnatural feel to the breasts. This problem can be avoided by placing the implants under the muscle.
Implants Last Forever
While it is a known fact that there are women who continue to live with the same implants for more than 20 years, chances are that they will not last a lifetime. This has nothing to do with the surgery itself but mainly because of a rupture in the implant in the case of saline implants.
In the case of silicone implants, the implant may lose its natural feel over a period of time and may need to be replaced after a few years. Some women even desire a change in the size of the implants and opt for a revision surgery.
Silicone Is A Dangerous Substance
Silicone implants have caused a fear in women because of reports claiming the rise of diseases such as cancer in women who have had breast augmentation surgery. There is no evidence to support this theory. Silicone has been the material that has been successfully used for years now in implants for various parts of the body including the ears, nose and even in heart valves. There is no evidence to prove that this material is linked to cancer. Silicone is extremely safe and can last for a very long time.
The Bigger The Better For Droopy Breasts
Large implants do not completely correct droopy breasts. When breasts naturally droop with age, lack of tone and breastfeeding, the nipples move below the breasts or lower down the breasts because of the sag.
Implants cannot correct this problem – no matter how large the implants are. A breast lift procedure will be required to correct this problem. A breast lift procedure along with an augmentation surgery will give the breasts a natural lift and make them look beautiful.
