You might think you know everything there is to know about breast augmentation and breast reconstruction but you likely have given in to some of the top breast reconstruction myths. At Reynolds Plastic Surgery, we have all the information you need to help you get all you need to understand before you undergo a breast implant or reconstruction procedure. Read on to find out more about breast reconstruction myths.
Myth #1: The common size for a female breast is a C cup
This is not true at all. In fact, there are a huge variety of sizes of breasts across all women, and there is no uniform size. C may be the “desired” size by most women in the world, but it is not the most common. Some women are KK’s and others are AAA’s. All sizes and shapes are beautiful and different.
Myth #2: Your breasts will stop developing when you are in your mid-teens
A lot of women don’t actually attain the full growth of their chest until their mid to late twenties. Some women find changes in their breast tissue all the way through menopause. Don’t lose heart!
Myth #3: You’ll always wear the same bra size
This is false. You will likely go up and down sizes up to 10 times in your life, what with pregnancies and other hormonal changes that cause your breast tissue to go up and down in size.
Myth #4: Your breasts need to be symmetrical
You might have heard women refer to their breasts as the “twins”, but it is likely not true that they’re exactly alike. Your breasts will most likely be different.
Myth #5: Any women who undergoes breast reconstruction does so for an increase in cup size
This is false. Pregnancy actually zaps fat from the chest, and women want to restore that full look once they have completed all their pregnancies. This means that many women undergo breast reconstruction to add the volume back.
Myth #6: Bras can cause cancer
This is absolutely untrue. You may have seen rumors floating around the internet, but there has been no proven scientific evidence that this is in any way linked to breast cancer. Don’t worry yourself about this.
Myth #7: If you have small breasts, you will be unable to breastfeed
This is untrue due to the fact that breast size has nothing to do with milk production, and everything to do with the amount of fat that is in a woman’s chest. There is no correlation between size and the amount of milk.
