Are you considering enhancing your breasts through breast lift or breast augmentation surgery? Learn the facts about both procedures from a trusted source. In this blog post, leading Newport Beach plastic surgeon Dr. Nirav Savalia clears up some common misconceptions regarding breast lift and breast augmentation surgery.
Myth #1: Breast Implants are not Natural-Looking
Thanks to advances in breast implant technology, modern implants look and feel very natural. What’s more, a qualified plastic surgeon such as Dr. Savalia is highly-trained in the latest surgical techniques to deliver beautiful, natural-looking results. Dr. Savalia offers his Newport Beach patients several implant types, including the popular “gummy bear” implants. These highly cohesive silicone gel implants are designed to mimic natural breast tissue and are teardrop shaped, just like natural breasts.
Myth #2: Breastfeeding After Breast Lift or Augmentation is Dangerous
Many women worry their implants could leak and potentially contaminate their breast milk. This is highly unlikely as modern breast implants are strong and safe. It is important to note, however, that the incision pattern used to place a woman’s implants can affect her ability to properly breastfeed. For example, the periareolar approach involves making a small incision around the nipple, which can possibly interfere with the milk ducts. If you plan on breastfeeding in the future, Dr. Savalia can use an incision pattern that does not require making an incision close to the nipple or milk ducts.
Myth #3: Breast Augmentation Alone Can Correct Breast Sag
While breast augmentation can correct slight breast sag for some women, there are a few things to consider. First, if your nipple sits below your natural breast crease line, it is highly unlikely that breast augmentation can fully correct the breast sag. Second, while breast augmentation can help you achieve the breast size you have always wanted, the truth is, fuller breasts are more likely to sag due to the effects of gravity. For women who want bigger and perkier breasts, Dr. Savalia can combine breast augmentation with lift. Breast lift with implants resizes and reshapes your breasts for a more beautiful appearance.
Myth #4: Combining Breast Lift and Augmentation is Dangerous
Not only is combining breast lift with augmentation safe, there are several benefits to combining the two procedures. When performed by an experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. Savalia, breast lift with implants can achieve breasts that are both fuller and perkier, adding to a more beautiful physique. Additionally, a combination procedure means you only undergo surgery once and avoid additional visits to your plastic surgeon’s office. Your body heals all at once from breast lift and augmentation, allowing you to enjoy the results you seek faster.
