Woman after breast augmentation in Kansas CityBreast augmentation is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in America. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, it was performed over 193,000 times in 2020 alone. Yet patients considering breast augmentation still have to sort through a lot of misconceptions.

Myth: Breast Augmentation Has a Long Recovery

You can achieve your body goals even if you have a tight schedule. In fact, most patients are able to return to work within just one to two weeks of having breast augmentation surgery.

You’ll need to limit certain activities, such as running, lifting, and swimming, to support the healing process. But for the most part, you’ll be back to your routine after roughly six weeks.

Myth: Breast Augmentation Can Correct Sagging

Because there are several different cosmetic breast procedures, it can be easy to confuse them. Breast augmentation is designed to add volume and shape to your breasts. Meanwhile, a breast lift is capable of tightening sagging skin to achieve a more youthful and elevated breast position.

Many women find that their goals for surgery overlap. Fortunately, it’s possible to combine breast augmentation with a breast lift to create the full and lifted results you desire.

Myth: Breast Augmentation Will Make Your Breasts Look Fake

Breast augmentation can certainly be used to increase your breast size dramatically. However, it’s also perfect for subtle and natural-looking enhancements. A skilled surgeon will utilize a variety of techniques, ranging from careful implant selection to implant placement, to achieve the desired effect.

One of the best things about this procedure is that it isn’t one size fits all. You can customize many different aspects of your breast augmentation to achieve the exact results you want.
