Have you ever considered breast augmentation surgery? Did you decide against it because of a “fact” that someone told you?
Maybe you heard some nightmare stories about how fake they look, or how terrible the recovery process is.
It’s important to know that most of the information “out there” about breast implants is either out-dated or just straight-up false. For example, only about 18% of the information about plastic surgery on Instagram comes from board-certified surgeons.
So let’s talk facts. Here are some of the most common myths out there about breast augmentation, and the real truth behind them.
1. You Will Be in Bed For Weeks After the Surgery
Yes, like any surgery, there will be a recovery time in which you take it easy. But it’s actually quite easy to take care after breast procedures and you’re certainly not going to be in bed for weeks.
You will see some swelling and discomfort immediately after the surgery, but that should subside significantly after about 48 hours. You should be able to settle back into most of your daily activities during the first week of recovery. But you should most likely hold off on working out again until the start of the second week of recovery, and after you get the green light from your surgeon.
We’re seeing a lot of people taking advantage of the current work-from-home world and recovering from home, without using vacation days.
2. They Cost a Fortune
Just because Hollywood superstars frequently get breast augmentation surgery, doesn’t mean that they’re the only ones who can afford it.
In today’s marketplace, you can get natural-looking breast implants for a few thousand dollars, and many clinics are offering financing options to make things even more affordable.
3. They Look Fake
Notice how we used the term “natural-looking” in the previous section? That’s because you can have that look and it is affordable.
This may be another myth that started in Hollywood. We’ve seen countless stars get breast implants that look demonstratively fake. However, you need to keep in mind that Pamela Anderson and Heidi Montag were probably not shooting for an all-natural look, to begin with.
The realness of a breast augmentation is up to you and the conversations that you have with your surgeon leading up to the actual surgery. If you let them know that you want a natural body contour, they should be able to show you exactly what is possible.
A natural look comes from choosing the right:
Your surgeon should also be able to show you exactly what is possible on your unique body using 3D image technology. That way, you can try before you buy, so to speak.
These are only 3 of the most common myths that you may have heard. If there is anything else keeping you from getting the breast implant procedure that you’ve always wanted, you should talk to a qualified professional.
Never let misinformation stand in the way of self-improvement or your dream body!
