Breast Augmentation Myths: Debunked

Do you dream of having shapelier breasts? Breast augmentation could be the solution. If you’re thinking about the procedure, you should know the truth. Today, we’re debunking five prevalent myths about breast augmentation. Have you heard any of these common untruths?

Myth #1- Silicone Implants Are Better than Saline

Many of our patients have heard that silicone implants are the superior choice to saline. This isn’t always true. Both silicone and saline implants can yield good results, and Dr. Sajjadian uses both implant types on a regular basis. He can help you determine which type of implant will work best for you. Your aesthetic goals, your body type, your lifestyle, your budget, and even your age can play a role in determining the best choice. The key to gorgeous breasts isn’t saline vs. silicone—it’s choosing a surgeon who knows how to bring out the best in both. Generally speaking Patients report that the silicone implants have less chance of showing rippling and wrinkling.

For our younger cosmetic breast augmentation patients (21 and under), saline is typically the only option available.

Myth #2- You Can’t Breastfeed After Breast Augmentation

Many of our breast augmentation patients hope to someday bear children and breastfeed. Although breastfeeding isn’t always possible after breast augmentation, it is much of the time. If you’re interested in breastfeeding in the future, tell Dr. Sajjadian. Some incision types and implant placements may increase your chances of breastfeeding success down the road.

Myth #3- Your Breasts Will Look Fake After Breast Augmentation

Surely you’ve seen women with large, obviously augmented breasts. It doesn’t have to be that way. Your breasts can look and feel very natural after breast augmentation, depending on the size of implant used and how it is placed. Dr. Sajjadian is one of the best breast augmentation surgeons in the area, and is well known for creating natural looking results. The Size of the implants and your anatomy, symmetry and your tissues can be the major determinant of how the breast will look. The incisions can typically be hidden for gorgeous results, even without clothing. Love your breasts!

Myth #4- Breast Augmentation Is an Easy Surgery, Any Surgeon Can Get Good Results

Breast augmentation is the most common cosmetic surgical procedure in the U.S. Although the surgery is common, it isn’t easy. It takes a skilled hand to produce natural looking results. Dr. Sajjadian is triple board certified and specializes in breast surgeries. His extensive experience and well known results make him a top choice for many women in California and throughout the world. Don’t just choose any surgeon. Work with a board certified plastic surgeon who specializes in breast surgery. Gorgeous results are possible but you need the right doctor to achieve them.

Breast Augmentation Myth #5- Breasts Can’t Sag After Breast Augmentation

Many patients see breast augmentation as the permanent solution to breast sagging. Unfortunately—augmented or not—your breasts are going to sag over time. Our best advice is to wear a supportive bra as much as you can and to come in for help when/if the sagging does occur. A breast lift can correct any breast sagging that does develop for a lifetime of gorgeous breasts.
