Six Things You Shouldn't Be Assuming When It Comes To Breast Augmentation

It's advisable to learn as much as you can about breast augmentation if you're interested in undergoing this procedure. You don't want to make any incorrect assumptions when you're deciding whether you should have breast augmentation done.

The following are six things you shouldn't be assuming when it comes to breast augmentation. 

You Cannot Breastfeed

You might be surprised to learn that breast augmentation doesn't impact a woman's ability to breastfeed. When a woman has breast augmentation done, the milk ducts that produce milk for breastfeeding are not typically impacted in any way. Women can therefore breastfeed normally after breast augmentation. 

Your Breasts Won’t Look Natural

Many women think that breast augmentation is always obvious. However, expert cosmetic surgeons can achieve natural-looking results when they perform the breast augmentation procedure. 

It's often impossible to tell that a woman has undergone breast augmentation, so you shouldn't worry that the results won't look or feel like real breasts. Cosmetic surgeons work to bring out a woman's natural beauty through breast augmentation so that the results look completely natural. 

You’ll Have Highly Noticeable Scars

Cosmetic surgeons can use numerous techniques to hide surgery scars when they perform breast augmentations. It's possible for surgeons to make incisions in the armpits so that there is no scarring on the breasts. Another option is to make incisions in areas where the resulting scars will be hidden by a swimsuit or a bra. 

Your Nipples Will Be Less Sensitive

Breast augmentation should not negatively affect nipple sensitivity. Although patients may briefly notice a decrease in nipple sensitivity immediately after surgery because their nerves become stretched, normal sensitivity levels will quickly be restored once the nerves have adjusted. 

It’s Not Healthy or Safe

Patients shouldn't forego breast augmentation because they are under the assumption that the procedure is unsafe. The breast implants used in the breast augmentation procedure are regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and must pass safety tests. This ensures their safety and durability. 

Only Younger Women Can Benefit From It

Women of all ages can and do undergo breast augmentation. Patients should never think that they're too old to benefit from the procedure. Many older patients decide to undergo breast augmentation to restore their confidence after they have had children or undergone a significant change to their appearance due to issues such as weight loss, for example.
