If you’re considering a breast augmentation procedure, you really can't do enough research, however, not all the information you come across may be entirely true.

After speaking to various surgeons and a raft of patients, we thought it important to dispel a couple of the most common myths out there.

Myth 1: I won’t be able to breast feed

Many of our patients are concerned that if they have a breast augmentation they won’t be able to breast-feed.

This isn’t true.

The overwhelming majority of our patients have no problems breastfeeding as the milk ducts are not affected or damaged during breast augmentation surgery.

Myth 2: I'll be left with lots of scarring

With all Transform breast augmentations, the incision is a couple of centimeters long and is always kept under the crease of the breast.

The scar will fade over time and will be barely noticeable due to the positioning of the incision.

We undertake thousands of breast augmentations every year and scarring post operatively, is not an issue or concern for most of these patients.

If a patient goes on to have multiple breast surgeries, including uplifts and reductions, the scarring implications are increased and this is clearly explained at the initial consultation stage.

Myth 3: My breasts will look fake

Not necessarily - it all depends on the patient and the type of result they are after.

The vast majority of our patients favour a natural result which is in keeping with their individual proportions and body frame.

At the consultation stage, the surgeon will ask the patient about their expectations in terms of size and profile – this will help inform what type of implant and positioning is best for the patient.

It’s important to note that the more breast tissue a patient has, the more natural the result as this tissue will help ‘hide’ the implant.

We offer the full range of Allergan implants which accommodates for all size and shape requests.
