Myth-Busting “Bust Myths” – The Truth About Breast Augmentation

Myth-Busting “Bust Myths” – The Truth About Breast augmentation Chicago

You’ve heard of TV’s MythBusters, the dynamic duo of self-taught experts who conduct quirky experiments to expose common myths and discover the truth behind them. What many people don’t realize is that there are also plenty of “BustMythers” out there, well-meaning people who unknowingly spread myths, misconceptions, and outright falsehoods about breast augmentation Chicago. The choice to pursue surgical breast enhancement is a major decision with the potential to both rejuvenate your body and revolutionize your self-image. Before setting out on the augmentation journey, it’s important that you know the truth behind these common breast enhancement fictions. At the Liposuction and Cosmetic Surgery Institute, our experienced team of distinguished surgical professionals have helped satisfied clientele with our breast augmentation services throughout Chicago, Naperville, and beyond for years, and we’re happy to help shed the light of truth for you on these persistent myths. After all, they’re your breasts, and they deserve only the very best!

Myth: Breast enhancement is a piece of cake. It’s so simple that any surgeon can easily do it, so one doctor is as good as the other.

Truth: It’s true that you have many options when pursuing breast implants and augmentation in communities as thriving as Naperville and the Chicago metro area. That makes it all the more vital to choose the very best surgeons to meet your breast enhancement needs. If you ask anybody who’s had surgery of any kind, you’ll realize that there aren’t any simple surgeries. Your body is your most cherished possession, a key element of what makes you you. There’s simply nothing simple about that. A Google search of “breast implant horror stories” will tell you all you need to know about the risks of dealing with incompetent surgeons. You owe it to yourself to demand the expertise, experience, and proven record of success that you’ll find with the Naperville breast augmentation Chicago masters of the Liposuction and Cosmetic Surgery Institute.

Myth: I’ve been very happy with the outcome of a friend’s breast augmentation, so if I go to her doctor, I’ll get the same results.

Truth: Unless your friend is your clone or identical twin, you can’t expect your results to perfectly mirror hers. After all, your breasts didn’t look exactly like hers before her procedure. The human body has inspired artists and dreamers through the ages precisely because it is as varied and nuanced as falling snowflakes. No two bodies are the same, and we wouldn’t want them to be. Likewise, no two breast enhancement regimens are identical. Frankly, a surgeon who uses only one method to achieve results most likely only knows about that one method! The most important factor in pursuing implants or other augmentation services is choosing a provider with the medical expertise and eye for artistry capable of developing a fully personalized plan for you–and only you. At the Liposuction and Cosmetic Surgery Institute, we take the time to customize augmentation programs for every individual, which is why our surgeons have been consistently rated at the very top of the Chicago breast augmentation community for years!

Myth: Cup size equals breast size.

Truth: As any woman who has been wearing bras for longer than a week can attest, the truth is a little more complicated. Especially if you’ve ordered bras by mail without trying them on or received them as gifts, you know that every manufacturer is different. A Victoria’s Secret bra is not a Stella McCartney is not an Eberjey is not an Xhilaration. They’re sized differently and fit differently. Determining the true size of your breasts requires expertly detailed measurements of your own body. Bras may come off of assembly lines, but you didn’t, and the dedicated team of surgeons at the Liposuction and Cosmetic Surgery Institute understand that. We’ll work tirelessly to design an augmentation program uniquely crafted to enhance the size and shape of your breasts.

Myth: Bigger is better!

Truth: Certainly, many of our satisfied patients are thrilled to walk away with beautiful, larger breasts, but life in today’s Naperville or Chicago is not a 1980’s rock video or an auto shop pinup calendar. There are many more complex factors involved in determining the precise shape and size of your breast implants. Age, body type, tissue consistency, and other considerations all come into play when designing the most ideal augmentation regimen for the one and only you. The surgical team at the Liposuction and Cosmetic Surgery Institute will work with you and provide expert mentoring and guidance to put you on the road to new-found confidence and vigor!

Myth: Scar location is the most serious consideration in choosing a breast enhancement procedure.

Truth: Until the day surgeons can magically beam implants into your body, scarring will remain a reality. You may be surprised to learn, however, that most post-op breast augmentation clients report very few lingering concerns about scarring. The Naperville breast augmentation specialists of the Liposuction and Cosmetic Surgery Institute will take the time with you to share all the best tips and strategies for long-term scar management and reduction. Before long, you’ll discover with great relief that with breathtaking breasts, scars and blemishes become barely noticeable.

Myth: When breast sizes don’t match, a simple implant will do the trick.

Truth: First off, completely symmetrical bodies only exist in sculptures and the imagination. There are differences in left and right breast size and shape in everyone, so you’re not alone. When the variations are of a wider scale and more noticeable, the Liposuction and Cosmetic Surgery Institute team is here to help. While there are many factors to consider in making breasts more even in size and appearance without damaging the skin of the smaller breast, we’re poised and ready to design an enhancement program to restore you to full confidence.

Myth: Painful, unsightly bruising is inevitable with surgical breast enhancement.

Truth: Certainly, the prospect of your breasts looking and feeling like they’ve gone 12 rounds with Mike Tyson is enough to give anybody second thoughts. You can breathe a sigh of relief, because up to 98% of post-op breast augmentation clients report absolutely no bruising after the fact. Bruising results from bleeding taking place beneath the skin. While no doctor can eliminate bleeding with 100% accuracy, a skilled surgical hand can radically reduce and preemptively prevent most bruise-causing blood loss. With the peerless expertise you’ll encounter at the Liposuction and Cosmetic Surgery Institute, you can say “goodbye” to your nightmares of sleeping face-down in a tub of ice!

Myth: Breast augmentation Chicago means dealing with the hassle of drain tubes.

Truth: It’s hardly a pretty picture–hitting the streets with your new breast implants, Chicago’s best and brightest looking on as you struggle with a spider-web of drain tubes. Sure, that’s a bit of an exaggeration, but it can feel that way when you’re worrying ahead of time. The good news is that you need worry no longer, because, though drainage issues are real in repeat procedures, first-time recipients of breast implants never require drain tubes. Even if this isn’t your first procedure, our surgical team works to ensure drainage troubles are as minimal and unobtrusive as possible.

Myth: Saline implants are always better than silicone implants.

Truth: In the past, according to the rampant rumor mill in Chicago, breast implants made of silicone were thought to be dangerous and a leading cause of any number of problems and diseases. In truth, these rumors were much ado about nothing, and the FDA has deemed silicone safe and approved it for use in since 2005 in breast implants. Naperville, you can rest easy! Both silicone and saline have advantages and disadvantages. The key to determining what’s right for you is to work with only the most dedicated and trustworthy surgeons, which is exactly what you’ll find at the Liposuction and Cosmetic Surgery Institute.

Of course, no blog post can answer all your questions about taking this vitally important step in your transformation, but our myth-busting these “bust myths” is evidence that you can’t rely on the rumor pipeline to be well informed. Trust only the proven experts! When it comes to breast augmentation, Chicago women of the most discriminating tastes have turned to the Liposuction and Cosmetic Surgery Institute.
