Breast Surgery: Sorting the Facts From Fiction

Overview: Are you considering undergoing breast surgery? It is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures in North America and can provide amazing cosmetic improvements. But when it comes to breast augmentation, do you know your facts from fiction? Read the blog below to find out some common breast augmentation myths and the facts behind them.

Breast Augmentation surgery is one of the most commonly requested procedures in the plastic surgery world and it can produce some fantastic results. As with all procedures it is important to consider the pros and cons before undergoing surgery. However, for many patients this involves considering a lot of common myths. How can you work out what concerns are fact and what are fiction? In this blog we'll lay out a couple of common breast surgery myths and show the truth behind them.

Myth 1: They will look unnatural

If your breast augmentation is performed by a professional and board-certified plastic surgeon, such as Dr. Brian D. Peterson, then your enhanced breasts will not look fake. It is key to choose a surgeon who knows how to create an enhanced appearance without making your breasts look unnatural. Factors such as patient height, weight, build, natural breast size, and age all play an important part in this stage.

Answer: False!

Myth 2: They will stop me breast feeding

This is another common worry for women who are considering breast surgery, and it is one that has no medical foundation. Many are concerned that if they breastfeed, harmful materials from the implant may be transferred to their infant, but there is no medical evidence to back this theory up. While certain women may not be able to breastfeed with or without breast implants, undergoing breast augmentation surgery should not affect a woman's ability to do so.

Answer: False!

Myth 3: The implants have to be replaced all the time

While there is some truth behind this myth, your breast implants certainly won't have to be replaced regularly. Depending on your age and individual case it may be advantageous to replace your implants at some point in the future, but it won't be a regular occurrence.

Answer: False!

Bottom Line: Deciding to get breast augmentation surgery is a big commitment, and one that shouldn't be taken lightly. However, while it's healthy to ask questions and to worry about certain things, there are a number myths associated with breast augmentation that are simply not true. Whether you've heard that surgery will stop you from breast feeding, or if you think that your new breasts will look unnatural, there are plenty of assumptions about breast augmentation that fall into the fiction category. We've outlined some common misconceptions in this blog and there are many more, but, as always, if you have any doubt whatsoever you should ask your surgeon. There may be myths about breast surgery, but there are never any silly questions!

I recently had liposuction done by Dr. Peterson to fix Coolsculpt I had had done that left me uneven. He was very professional, caring and compassionate and assured me everything could be fixed. I can't express my gratitude to Dr. Peterson for what an amazing job he did and how well he took care of me. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a plastic surgeon, in fact I have recommended him to many friends and they have all been very happy. My experience at the clinic was amazing, right from the beginning talking with Cynthia and the amazing care I got from all the nurses, I felt very special.
