Breast augmentation is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the world, thousands of people have breast enhancement and reduction surgery every year. Some decide to stay at home, while others visit popular medical tourism destinations such as Thailand, Brazil and Cost Rica. As plastic surgery gets more popular, so do the myths surrounding it. This article will look at some of the most common breast augmentation misconceptions.
They Look Fake
Many people are under the impression that breast augmentation looks fake after the surgery has been done. If you are going for underarm breast augmentation (known as เสริมหน้าอกใต้รักแร้ in Thai) and you book your procedure with a reputable cosmetic surgeon, the result will look anything but fake. The techniques cosmetic surgeons use today guarantee that your breasts will look 100% natural, people won’t be able to tell the difference. The only time breast augmentation looks fake is when you go overboard and get massive implants that don’t complement the contours of your body. If you listen to the doctor and go with their recommendations, nobody will know you’ve had your breasts augmented.
They’ll Feel Fake to Touch
Another myth about breast augmentation is that your breasts will feel fake to touch, so your partner will immediately know the difference and disapprove. Once again, this is another myth that simply isn’t through. Advancement in modern technology has ensured new implant material feels almost exactly the same as natural breast tissue. Placing them underneath the chest muscle and taking measures to stop scar tissue ensures implants are as real as you can get.
You Lose All Feeling
Once again this is just a myth which doesn’t reflect the real result of the surgery. Your breasts will feel the exact same as they felt before, only bigger or smaller depending on the type of surgery you opt for. Although a very small number of women do experience loss of nipple sensation after augmentation surgery, this returns after a few months. It is very rare that you’ll lose all sensation, and never have it return.
Long & Painful Recovery
Some people think that the road to recovery after breast augmentation is a long and painful process, but this isn’t true. Like with any type of surgery, the area will be a little sore and tender for a few weeks. This pain and discomfort is easily managed with the right medication, and it subsides after about 2 weeks.
You’ll Need Regular Replacements
You won’t need to have them replaced as long as you deal with a reputable cosmetic surgeon. Most patients have had breast implants for well over 20 years and never needed to have anything done with them. Their implants still continue to be soft and natural looking.
There are many myths and misconceptions about breast augmentation surgery, the one’s mentioned in this article are only a small sample of them. If you are planning on going for breast enhancement surgery and you’ve questions you’d like to clear up, contact the clinic or hospital and let them put your mind at ease.
