To all women who may feel a little insecure about their breasts, do not feel ashamed – for you are not alone. In fact, I am pretty sure that we all have been in this stage. Here are some reasons why women might consider cosmetic surgeries for their breasts:
- Desire to accentuate the size and shape of the breast
- Restore the lost volume that could be caused by weight loss or pregnancy
- Achieve better symmetry
- Regain the firmness of the breasts that has been lost over time
- Medical reasons such as having been a survivor of breast cancer
While body acceptance requires some time, there are some cosmetic surgeries to consider should you ever feel a need for a change in appearance. One of the popular cosmetic surgeries would be breast augmentation, which uses breast implants to enhance the shape and size of one’s chest.
Despite the concerns raised by individuals who may feel the breast will look seemingly fake and unnatural, there is still a high demand for this surgery. This is due to the fact that the advancement of technology has set the bar high, making it hard to differentiate the appearance of natural and enhanced breasts. Plus, a qualified surgeon will take into consideration your body measurements and placement to ensure the best results for you.
Considering breast augmentation? Here are some fact checks you should know of:
Myth #1: After getting breast implants, I will no longer have any breast sensation
Fact: While some women do experience this loss of sensation after the procedure, it is a rare exception as this is only a temporary feeling. The nerves just require some time to heal and adjust to the new size of the breast. It is estimated for the sensation will return over the course of a few months.
Myth #2: I can’t breastfeed once I get breast implants
Fact: This has been one of the main reasons why women who have children hold off the idea of breast implants. Fortunately, the ability to breastfeed is reliant on the milk ducts or milk production glands, and breast implants will not touch these areas. Also, certain augmentation methods may suggest breastfeeding to be easier!
Myth #3: The lifespan of breast implants typically lasts for 10 years
Fact: Over the years, these implants have been improved to ensure long-lasting results. With the use of high-quality silicone-filled implants, these results have been outstanding, considering that some women have had these same implants for over 20 years. In addition, despite all these years, their implants still maintain their soft and natural look.
