Breast Augmentation Myths

Breast Augmentation MythsDispelling 3 Breast Augmentation Myths

Often times there is a negative stigma associated with breast augmentation–so you probably wouldn’t know that it is one of the most common cosmetic procedures that people undergo.

Perhaps the negative views come from the tons of misinformation surround the procedure.

In an effort to clear up much of the misunderstanding regarding breast augmentation, here are some myths that you can put to rest.

Myth 1:

It Is Easy to Tell When Someone Has Implants

The overall goal at Washingtonian Plastic Surgery is to leave each patient looking natural and feeling their best–that includes patients who undergo breast augmentation procedures.

Before undergoing a breast augmentation procedure, Dr. Navin Singh meets with each patient for an individualized and complimentary consultation.

Dr. Singh and the medical professionals at Washingtonian Plastic Surgery will work with you to choose an implant that will give you the fullness and shape that you desire and will produce the most natural, appearing enhancement.

Myth 2:

A Particular Implant Will Produce the Same Result in Each Patient

Like with most procedures, one size doesn’t fit all. Every patient is different, so one must keep in mind that there are a number of different factors that will help determine the final results of a breast augmentation procedure.

These factors can include the placement of the implant, skin condition and a patients size.

It’s helpful to have a general goal or expectations in mind before a breast augmentation procedure, but it is also important to look at the different possibilities and outcomes in relation to your size and build.

Myth 3:

I Can Choose a Specific Cup Size When Selecting Implants

A person’s actual cup size is not an accurate way of determining the size of a woman’s breasts.

For example, a 36C from one bra manufacturer will obviously not fit the same as a 36C from another manufacturer.

“Breast implants don’t come in cup sizes,” said Dr. Singh. “They don’t come in A, B or C. Those are made up sizes similar to Starbucks making up Tall, Grande and Venti.”

When choosing implants, you should focus on measurements that are standard like a CC or ML. Patients should go through different sizes to see what would be the best size for them.
