Breast augmentation is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures performed in the United States, as more than 330,000 Americans women decided to give their treasured assets a boost in 2012. Despite the abundance of breast enlargement in Miami and around the globe, there's a lot of misinformation floating around about the surgery.
Make sure you know the truth about the following myths below:
- Breast implants can melt in a sauna – You may be scratching your head about this, but it's a common concern that many plastic surgeons hear. Here are the facts: The outer silicone shell of an implant has a melting point of 392 degrees Fahrenheit. Saunas range between 150 and 190 degrees. If you're in an environment within silicone-melting territory, you may have bigger problems on your hands.
- Implants must be replaced every 10 years – There is no hard-and-fast rule about when or if you should have your implants replaced. This will depend on your lifestyle choices, whether or not you've had children and many other factors.
- You won't be able to breastfeed – Breast implants do not interfere with breastfeeding, because milk ducts are not disturbed during the procedure. A new study from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons also confirmed that breastfeeding does not necessarily contribute to sagging for mothers with breast implants.
If you want to get all the facts about breast implants, mommy makeovers and butt lift surgery in Miami, you should reach out to a board-certified plastic surgeon. Dr. Christopher Craft is available to meet with you and answer any questions that you may have.
