5 Lies & Misconceptions about Breast Implant Surgery –
Breast Implant Surgery is more common, and safer, than ever. That being said, there are still a lot of misinformation and misconceptions about breast augmentation surgery! Here, we’ll put to rest some of the biggest rumors and falsehoods about breast implants, and set the record straight about one of the most highly requested procedures in the world of plastic surgery.
Lie #1: Older Women Can’t Get Breast Implant Surgery
Women of all ages who are in good health can safely have breast implant surgery. Whether you’re 18 or 48, as long as your doctor is in agreement that it is safe for you, anyone who wants breast implants can get them, regardless of age. In fact, many mature women whose breasts have begun to sag or drop because of age find that breast implants are the ideal way to restore and improive their shape!
Breast implant surgery is, in fact, very routine. And modern techniques and technologies in breast implants and surgical procedures has made this surgery safer than ever. If you are in good health and at a healthy weight, don’t let your age stop you from considering brteast implant surgery, to get the figure you’ve always wanted.
Lie #2: You Can’t Wear an Underwire Bra if You’ve Had Breast Implant Surgery
This one doesn’t even make sense. Just like natural breasts, breast implants are susceptible to sagging over time if they don’t receive the proper support – larger breasts in particular. While wearing an underwire bra immediately following your surgery can result in discomfort, once you’re completely healed you can -and should- wear an underwire bra without any discomfort whatsoever. Underwire bras provide ideal support, and will do nothing but aid in helping you look and feel your best for years to come.
Lie #3: You Can’t Get a Mammogram If You Have Breast Implants
The opposite is actually true. In fact, women with silicone breast implants often get more accurate results from their mammograms. This is because rather than the usual compression method, patients with breast implants typically receive a mammogram with an x-ray.
Lie #4: Breast Implants Cause Cancer
This is just flat out false. There has never been any scientific link whatsoever between cancer and breast implants. While this particular rumor continues to make its rounds, decades of study have time and again disproved this. All implants manufactured today have been approved completely safe by the FDA.
Lie #5: You Must Replace Your Breast Implants Every Ten Years
The misconception that all breast implants must eventually be replaced is based on outdated information and antiquated medical techniques. Modern advancements in breast implants have allowed women to enjoy a one-and-done procedure, never having to replace them at all.
Early generations of breast implants did, in fact, have some problems with leaking, popping and shifting. But today’s vastly superior breast implants are more, durable, more stable and virtually “leak-proof” – meaning one breast implant surgery is all most women will ever need.
