4 Myths About New Jersey Breast Augmentation

Breast Augmentation Lift

A breast augmentation, or boob job, is a popular cosmetic surgery designed to enhance the size and shape of their breasts. While most women are aware of the benefits of this procedure, there are many misconceptions about the outcome of the surgery. Four of the biggest breast augmentation myths are outlined below.

Myth #1: Breast Implants Always Look Fake

While some women still prefer the more augmented look, most patients now hope to achieve more subtle results. If you have concerns that a breast augmentation will always yield fake looking results, rest-assured that selecting a highly experienced and skilled plastic surgeon means you really can achieve the look you want, and nothing you don’t.

The results of your procedure can be incredibly natural, particularly if you choose a small breast implant. Breast implants are available in a wide array of shapes, sizes, and profiles, and can be placed over or under the muscle. During your consultation, your plastic surgeon will help you determine the most appropriate option for your aesthetic goals.

Myth #2: Breast Augmentation Results Will Last A Lifetime

Although the manufacturers of breast implants have improved their design over the years, increasing their longevity, it is a myth that breast implants will last a lifetime. Instead of the previous recommendation to replace saline and silicone implants, they are now able to last decades with no issues, but regular breast exams and imaging as advised by your GP is recommended. It is always important to understand that a secondary procedure may be necessary in the future.

Myth #3: You Will Look Amazing Immediately Afterwards

While most people do not find the recovery process to be very painful, it is important to understand that some downtime is necessary after a breast augmentation and the final results will not be immediately evident. After implants are placed under them, your muscles naturally tighten, which means that your new implants will initially appear higher on your chest. In addition, swelling is to be expected for the first several weeks or even months. Patience is required and it is important not to judge your results until the swelling has subsided, so try not to schedule your surgery immediately before an important event such as a wedding.

Myth #4: A Breast Augmentation Will Give You Your Dream Body

As with any other surgical procedure, it is imperative to have realistic expectations so that you ensure satisfaction with the results. A breast augmentation can increase the size of your chest, correct asymmetry, and improve your body’s contour. As a result, patients often feel more confident and comfortable in their own skin. However, increasing your chest size will not transform the rest of your body or change any other characteristics. Many women assume that one change will deliver their dream body, but such expectations can only result in disappointment.
