Hand Making Incision Under Patients Marked BreastAlmost everyone is familiar with the term “breast implants.” Even so, there are still many misconceptions about undergoing breast implant surgery in the Tampa Bay area and what to expect from the outcome.  Below, we will debunk popular myths about breast augmentation so you are informed before undergoing surgery.

Myth: If I get the same implants as my friend, our breasts will look the same.

Truth: Every woman’s body is different, so how your breasts look after receiving implants will most likely differ than how your friend’s breasts look. A woman’s health, size, and skin condition are all factors that impact breast augmentation outcome.

Myth: My breast implants will look fake.

Truth: Before undergoing breast augmentation, it is important to consult with your surgeon and discuss your expectations from surgery. Breast implants enhance your breasts, but a drastic change is not always necessary. The more drastic the change, the more obvious it will be that you have made a significant modification. A small augmentation can go a long way while still looking natural.

Myth: Breast augmentation results in obvious scars.

Truth: Dr. Moraitis makes every effort to ensure that scars are placed inconspicuously during breast augmentation surgery. Scars are often placed in the breast fold, and are barely visible once fully healed.
