Myth 2: Recovery time after surgery will be long and painful

Myth 3: I won’t be able to breastfeed after I have breast implants

Breast implants may seem very invasive but as long as the nipples and milk ducts are kept intact and not damaged during the procedure, you will still be able to breast feed after a breast augmentation procedure. In short, breast implants will not pose any risks or difficulty to those who wish to breastfeed after.

Myth 4: I will lose sensation in my breasts

It’s true you may lose sensation on your nipples post-surgery but give your nerves time to adjust to the size of your breasts and your nipples will regain sensation a few months after you have fully recovered. Loss of breast sensation on the other hand is almost zero to rare.

Myth 5: I will be able to see results immediately after surgery

You’ll be excited to see the results of your breast augmentation surgery and you probably will expect to see them immediately after. The truth is immediately after surgery, your muscles will react by contracting and it’s normal to experience swelling. Give it 8 to 12 weeks for the swelling to come down and you’ll be able to fully appreciate the results of your breast augmentation procedure
