Breast Implant Facts or Fictions

Thursday, September 15th, 2016


breast augmentationBreast implant (augmentation) surgery is one of the most popular and common plastic surgery procedures in the world. It’s interesting to recall, however, that approximately thirty years ago it was only the very select who could chose to enhance their décolletage.

If you’re considering breast implants but are a bit apprehensive, continue to read. Breast augmentation surgery has minimal recovery time and few side-effects and it isn’t as scary as it may sound. If you’re debating whether or not to get implants, it’s important to understand the distinctions between fact and fiction. So, here are a few implant fictions that may help you make a more informed decision:

If you have larger breasts you will be happy. If you are choosing implant surgery hoping it will make you happier, please reconsider. Implants can enhance your appearance, that’s true, but they are not guaranteed to give you a happier outlook on life.
Big breasts will make you look skinny. While it’s true that in some women larger breasts make their waist look smaller, generally speaking, breast implants won’t make you look skinny. The only real and successful “road to looking skinny” is incorporating a healthy diet and exercise routine.
Silicone implants aren’t safe. Yes, during the ‘80s and ‘90s there were problems with silicone implants leaking or breaking. However, with advanced technologies, today’s silicone implants are safe. Dr. Buchanan offers silicone shells filled with either salt water (saline) or cohesive silicone gel.
Breast implants look fake. This is one of the biggest myths surrounding breast augmentation surgery and it couldn’t be farther from the truth. Your implants will look natural because you will consult with Dr. Buchanan prior to deciding upon surgery to help you decide what shape, size and texture of implant would be ideal for your body size and type. We understand that you want to look proportionate and natural.
Breast implant surgery is safe, and you have choices to compliment your body type. To learn more, we invite you to call to schedule a consultation appointment with Dr. Buchanan, today:
