Top 3 misunderstandings about breast augmentation

All implants look fake: This is perhaps the oldest myth there is! While some women prefer to have a bolder and clearly augmented look, most choose an enhancement that achieves their volume, shape, symmetry and size goals with no one being the wiser! Thanks to today’s technology, there are a wide range of implants available which allows cosmetic surgeons and clients to select the right implants for their desires, and when done with the proper preparation and attention to detail, breast enhancements look beautifully natural, resulting in a more confident woman.

Implants are dangerous: Silicone gel implants of the past were questioned because there was a lack of evidence to show they were safe. Now there’s an abundance of evidence to show that breast augmentations offer a safe and reliable way to enhancement your feminine figure. Not to mention that today’s modern materials and techniques have a first-rate safety record as well as FDA approval.

Implants have to be replaced often: A major concern for clients is that implants need replacement every decade, but this is actually a major misconception. If you still love your breast size and the implants are in good condition (no leaking, abnormal swelling, or unexplained tenderness) then there’s no need to undergo another procedure for new implants! A probable culprit for this 10-year myth is that implants have a 10-year manufacturer’s warranty, but there’s no need to replace safe, working implants simply because the warranty expired.

Many women can admit to having admired (or even envied) another woman’s breasts at least once. Perhaps you’ve admired another woman’s full figure without even knowing she had a breast augmentation performed. Now could be the right time for you to rediscover your feminine beauty in a new way. According to a recent study in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery®, the medical journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), 98 percent of women who had breast augmentation surgery said the results met or exceeded their expectations, and perhaps you could be among these women who have found new confidence in their body.
