Getting any type of Beverly Hills plastic surgery procedure can be scary. Going under the knife can make even the bravest person very nervous. There are few surgeries that incite more nervousness than breast enhancement surgery. There are many myths surrounding breast surgeries; many of them are just that: myths. Before getting this procedure done, it is important to know what myths are true and what are false. This can help ease one’s mind significantly before the surgery.
One of the main myths surrounding breast implants is that they cause cancer. This is certainly not true. Both saline and silicone breast implants do not cause any medical diseases or illnesses. There have been studies which have proven this over and over. This myth may have originated because it is a fact that breast implants can make the detection of breast cancer via mammogram more difficult because the implants themselves can obscure about 10% of a patient’s breast tissue. Still, there are special techniques for performing mammograms on women with breast implants in order to view as much breast tissue as possible. When it comes to breast implants Beverly Hills residents can rest assured; breast implants do not increase a person’s chance of contracting breast cancer.
Another main myth surrounding breast implants is that they make breast feeding impossible. In most cases, this is false. However, there are some types of incisions that can make breast feeding more difficult. If a woman plans to breast feed some time after getting implants, she must make sure to tell her Beverly Hills plastic surgeon before undergoing the procedure. If the surgeon places the incisions in the folds under the breast or the armpit, they are less likely to disrupt milk production. A peri-areolar incision is a lot more likely to sever the milk ducts as the nipple is removed from the breast and re-adjusted. Still, even this procedure may not completely cut off milk production. If a woman is having trouble breast feeding, she should consult a lactation consultant.
Some people think that a lower priced breast surgery doesn’t compromise the result. This is not true. Although a small discount is one thing, there are costs associated with a quality surgery. A plastic surgeon should have a certified operating room, a board-certified anesthesiologist, and a surgeon certified by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Going abroad to get a procedure done is not a good idea. There is no way to know if the surgeon has the proper credentials and experience. Although you may cut costs by going this route, it can lead to serious health risks. When looking for a breast augmentation Beverly Hills and Los Angeles have many qualified surgeons. If money is an issue, than some offices offer no-interest payment plans.
When speaking of the many great things about breast implants Beverly Hills patients most often mention the confidence boost they give. Achieving the beautiful figure desired by so many, being able to wear fitted clothes and swimsuits with confidence. But breast implants aren’t just for vanity. There is so much more to them than meets the eye. A woman by the name of Lydia Carranza is alive today because of her double D breast implants. Lydia was working at a dental office when her co worker’s husband opened fire at their workplace. The gunfire killed her coworker, and Lydia herself was shot twice in the chest. After the CT scans were reviewed it was observed that the bullet fragments lodged in her implants were millimeters away from her heart and other vital organs. Had it not been for her breast implants Lydia could have died or been much more seriously injured due of the shooting. This doesn’t mean that we should all go get breast implants Beverly Hills surgeons advise us not to get implants as a means to stop bullets, or in place of a bullet proof vest, but this does show one of the many great things plastic surgery has done.
Breast implants have also helped women in overcoming breast cancer. For many women breast cancer runs in their family. Family history showing a mother, grandmother, or even great-grandmother having breast cancer can be interpreted as a factor for the likelihood of the next generation having breast cancer. Although studies show that unless you have mutations in the genes BRCA1 and/or BRCA2 you might never have breast cancer. Though these genes are hereditary in some cases it is not. Some cases of breast cancer are due to spontaneous gene mutation. Women with or without the knowledge of these inherited and spontaneous genes are still going through extreme measures to avoid ever getting breast cancer.
These women are undergoing what is called a masectomy. Also used as a treatment for breast cancer, a mastectomy is performed to remove all breast tissue, leaving only the nipple and areola. Often during the same procedure, a breast implant is placed, in order to replace the breast tissue lost. A masectomy might not seem like an option for some of us but for others, it is an only option. By finding a skilled plastic surgeon Los Angeles breast cancer patients can look forward to the fact that they can still have a beautiful, shapely body, even if they’ve lost their breasts to cancer. Plastic surgery Los Angeles & beyond has helped both women and men with more than just looks. It has been proven over and over that plastic surgery can be implemented not only for shallow reasons, but also for self preservation.
