Breast enhancement is something that’s quite common among women these days. It is something which can help them in becoming satisfied with their bosoms. After all, not every woman is created equal, with some having nearly flat chests, while others’ breasts are saggy or even asymmetrical.

It can be quite devastating to a woman’s self confidence to have less than attractive looking breasts, especially with them being such prime targets for their partner’s arousal. It would also make them feel desirable whenever their breasts are just too flawed.

This is one reason why women choose to have breast surgery. Yet, this is also something which poses quite a few risks, though rare. Because there have been a lot of myths surrounding breast enhancement procedures, the ladies have become quite wary of things and would rather choose to live with their “shortcomings.”

It is definitely important for women all over the world to know the facts from the fallacies just so they’d get a good idea of what breast enhancement is really all about.

Below are just some of the most common myths spread all over the place.

  1. Women won’t be able to breast feed if they undergo cosmetic procedures for their breasts – This is somewhat true, although it really depends on the incision, or even the placement of the implants. Any surgical procedures done to the breast can affect the ability to breast feed, though it’s quite rare. The truth is, if an incision was made along the creases of a woman’s breast, rather than around the nipples, there won’t be any hindrances to breast feeding. This also applies to situations where the implant is slipped right under the chest muscles. For women who are still breast feeding babies, it is very important that they discuss this matter with the surgeon before going under the knife.
  2. Getting silicone implants is a dangerous affair – Back in 1992, silicone implants were declared by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration of America) as unsafe for long term use. However, they have been cleared during 2006, after many years of constant studying and testing. Yet, women must be aware that it doesn’t matter whether it’s silicone or saline implants they’re thinking of getting. Each one poses their own risks, and it would be crucial for her to get an annual checkup with the surgeon just to check if the implants are doing fine.
  3. Breast enhancement will always look fake – Considering that breast size is different among every woman, with some having smaller and others having larger breasts, it really depends on their needs. A woman can always discuss with her surgeon what sort of breast implants will be used that would appear natural, and the professional’s expert opinion will definitely matter in choosing the types of implants to be used. Factors to be considered include the woman’s weight, body shape, height and even her shoulder width.

These are just some of the misconceptions surrounding breast enhancement surgery. Since the facts have been provided, women with breast size issues should ponder on these points before making the decision.
