Common Misconceptions About Breast Lift and Augmentation
Miami breast lift and augmentation surgeon Dr. Krau believes the most satisfied patients are those who are the most well-informed. If you are considering pursuing breast lift surgery, breast augmentation or a combination of both, Dr. Krau would like to help. In this blog post, he shares the truth behind the most common misconceptions regarding the procedures.
People Will Know I’ve Had Breast Augmentation
Modern breast implants are made to look and feel more natural than ever before. For optimal results, you should always choose a qualified plastic surgeon who specializes in breast augmentation surgery, like Dr. Krau. As a top Miami breast augmentation surgeon, Dr. Krau uses his precise skill and technique to achieve beautiful, natural-looking results his patients can enjoy.
The Bigger the Implant Size, the Better
This is simply not true, as there is no one ideal breast implant size for all women. If you are petite, overly large breasts can make you look disproportionate or “top heavy.” It is important to choose an implant size that complements your body size and frame. During your initial consultation, Dr. Krau can help you choose an implant size that enhances your physique and addresses your goals.
Breast Implants Need to Be Replaced Every 10 Years
Modern implants are made stronger and durable than ever before, allowing them to last for many years. Implants do not need to be replaced unless they rupture or leak. Some women may choose to have their implants replaced because they are no longer happy with their implant size.
Breastfeeding After Breast Augmentation or Lift is Not Safe
Breastfeeding with implants is both safe and possible. However, your ability to breastfeed properly can be affected by the incision pattern that your plastic surgeon uses to place your implants. For example, the periareolar approach involves making an incision around the nipple, which can possibly disturb the milk ducts. If future breastfeeding is important to you, make sure to tell Dr. Krau. Once he knows all of your concerns, Dr. Krau may suggest using a pattern that will not interfere with your milk ducts.
Breast Augmentation Can Correct Sagginess
Many women who want bigger, fuller breasts also want perkier, younger-looking breasts. While breast implants can improve the shape of the breasts and correct slight sagging, it may not be enough. If your nipples sit below your breast crease, you may benefit from breast lift. Dr. Krau can combine breast lift with implants to resize and reshape your breasts for a fuller, perkier appearance.
