MYTH: Women lose all sensation in their breasts after breast augmentation/breast implant surgery.
Because of media portrayals of plastic surgery, myths about breast augmentation surgery often circulate without a proper response from the plastic surgery community. Because of limited access to media outlets, even if a response is published, it hardly reaches the ideal audience in enough time to dispel such myths about breast augmentation. One myth includes a sentiment about women losing all feeling in their breasts as a post-operative by-product of the implant procedure. This is a myth. For Dr. Oldham, breast surgery of any kind is uniquely tailored to each patient and loss of sensation, while a risk in any breast surgery, is not uniquely associated with breast augmentation. For many women, the sensation felt in the breast and in the nipples is cherished as a source of sensuality and sexuality, and no plastic surgery procedure would be intentionally designed to rob women of such pleasure.
