For as long as breast augmentation has been around, rumors have circulated through the community, scaring and discouraging women from looking more into this life changing procedure. These myths are telling women “you can’t breastfeed after implants” or “they always look so fake,” when in reality these are nothing more than common misconceptions.
For women who are considering breast augmentation, it is important to learn the difference between the FACTS and these myths, which is why Dr. Castor and our entire team at Artisan Aesthetics Plastic Surgery & Laser Center wish to debunk some of the more common rumors going around today.
The Breastfeeding Dilemma: Can You Breastfeed After Breast Implants?
For young women who wish to improve their overall proportions with breast implants, the idea of completely taking away the option for breastfeeding can be daunting. However, it is just a myth that you cannot breastfeed after breast augmentation. Many women choose to wait until after having children to get their implants, not because of the misconceived inability to breastfeed, but because pregnancy and breastfeeding can alter the shape, size, and appearance of the breasts. Dr. Castor emphasizes that this does not mean it is impossible or that women can’t or don’t breastfeed after breast augmentation.
If breastfeeding in the future is important to you, make sure you tell Dr. Castor during your initial consultation as he will take that in consideration when placing the implants.
What Breast Augmentation Actually Does
Believe it or not, there are even misconceptions about what breast augmentation is intended for. While most people might say that breast augmentation makes breasts get bigger and go up two sizes, there’s so much more than just increasing the size of a woman’s breasts.
Breast augmentation is about enhancing your proportions by also improving the shape of your breasts and ensuring that the movement and feel of the implant is as natural as possible. Dr. Castor will take into consideration your current body proportions, your breast shape, your chest size, and breast tissue before deciding together with you about what size, shape, and type of implant will work best for your lifestyle.
Real or Fake: How Natural Can Breast Augmentation Results Look?
The media likes to openly mock implants and the women that receive them, but the truth of the matter is YOU get to decide who knows about your procedure and who does not. At Artisan Plastic Surgery, Dr. Castor’s knowledge and expertise will help make your breast augmentation results as natural as possible. He will carefully place the implants and give his recommendation for shape and size in order for your overall appearance to feel effortless and natural.
