How Safe Is Breast Augmentation?
With all the negative stigma and rumors that are constantly floating around, patients are often discouraged or uneasy about pursuing cosmetic surgery procedures such as breast augmentation. Don’t let all the myths mislead you about the safety of a procedure you are considering.
One of the most commonly targeted procedures is breast augmentation. News sources and health magazines are constantly poking and prodding at the procedure, making conclusions from nonsense and scaring patients from pursuing something they’d otherwise love to learn more about. Despite it all, however, breast augmentation continues to rise on the charts, still holding its place as the number one cosmetic surgery in the United States with over 330,000 performed last year and a high, 86% patient satisfaction rating. So where is all of this negative stigma coming from? Clearly the procedure is safer than they say.
BREAST AUGMENTATION SAFETY
As the numbers indicate, breast augmentation is actually a very safe and satisfying procedure when done right and by a professional. To ensure your safety and the best possible results, it is important to stick with a board-certified plastic surgeon. They have years of experience and training you can trust with handling your procedure. After all, if you were getting a part of your house remodeled, would you trust just anyone handling the job, or would you go with the professional? It’s the same concept, really. Also, it is important not to fall for a procedure just because of an enticingly low price, especially when it is across borders. There are many doctors outside of the United States charging very low prices, claiming to have an experience that they don’t have, and using fake patient reviews to lure in new clients. Your safety is truly in the hands of who is performing your surgery, so be picky with whom you trust.
WHAT DO YOU NEED TO DO?
A lot of how your procedure goes also depends on you. It is important to listen to your surgeon’s advice during your consultations and follow the pre and post-procedure guidelines that we give you. All of the restrictions and rules are created for your own safety, not because your surgeon is out to get you!

We are just as concerned about your safety and satisfaction as you are so please don’t hesitate to contact us, even if it’s just to say how happy you are with your new breasts!
