Though breast augmentation in metro Detroit and across the globe is becoming more and more popular (in fact, breast augmentation is the most popular cosmetic surgery procedure today), there are still some common misconceptions surrounding it.
Any surgical procedure is nothing that should be taken lightly, and we want you to be armed with accurate information upon making your decision on whether or not to undergo a breast augmentation. Here, we dispel three common mistaken beliefs surrounding breast augmentation to help you make an informed decision.
Myth: Breast augmentation is too painful for me
While there can be a certain amount of discomfort involved in nearly any surgical procedure, we do all that we can to minimize pain after your breast augmentation procedure. And sometimes, sadly, the fear of the unknown can be enough to scare folks away from receiving a procedure they truly want.
Rest assured that we do all that we can to ensure our patients’ comfort level before, during and after every single procedure. Prior to any surgery, all pain management options are discussed at length to determine the best course of action.
Pain medication and anesthesia go a long way in controlling discomfort. Additionally, anti-inflammatory and muscle relaxing drugs may also be used in combination. Truth be told, after many procedures, patients often feel that over the counter pain relievers suffice in their pain management, though we can prescribe pain medication if necessary.
More times than not, patients are pleasantly surprised that their breast augmentation was far less painful than they imagined.
Myth: I could never afford a breast augmentation
Most cosmetic breast augmentation procedures are not covered by insurance. However, that most certainly does not mean that a breast augmentation is unattainable.
Dr. Andrew’s office is pleased to offer a variety of ways to finance your breast augmentation. We accept cash, check, cashier’s check and all major credit cards. In addition, we offer financing through Care Credit, of which you can right on our website. Care Credit allows you to get the treatment you want now while paying it off with affordable monthly payments over the course of one to five years.
We often liken cosmetic procedures to other life changing purchases, such as a new car. Oftentimes we finance larger purchases in order to enjoy them now and into the future. And when it comes to being confident in your own skin, well, you can’t put a price on that.
Myth: Breastfeeding is impossible with implants
Breastfeeding concerns are common among patients who are of childbearing age. Many people mistakenly believe that breast implants make it impossible to breastfeed. Not the case. Most of the time, when the implant incision is made under the breast or in the armpit region, breastfeeding will not be affected. Also worth noting is that breastfeeding with breast implants does not affect the position of the breasts or contribute to future sagging.
