What do men think of breast implants? This is a common question we get at our cosmetic surgery center in Fort Lauderdale. We understand that others’ thoughts on breast implants play in the decision-making of patients who undergo breast augmentation.
Safety, pain, and overall feeling are the most common clarifications plastic surgeons make and that will always be expected. When it comes to touch, patients want to know what a breast implant feels like to men, if it is noticeable, and if that even matters?
Can Men Tell If You Have Implants?
Well, sometimes, yes. We have to admit to ourselves that even we can tell if someone has had surgery. Sometimes, though, we wrongfully assume they have had surgery when they haven’t or vice versa. So, basically, sometimes we can tell, other times we can’t, and sometimes we’re just mistaken either way.
The size increase, the material used, and the profile of the breast lift can all be a factor in how “noticeable” your implants are.
There is no way to tell and most modest increases in breast size will not be as readily noticeable as a 4 letter jump in cup size. The important factor to consider is if you will notice and how you will feel after the surgery. Though breast implant surgery is a cosmetic procedure, it will have a profound and positive effect on your self-image.
Do Breast Implants Feel Different to the Touch to a Man?
Can you feel implants and can men feel them too? You will feel the increased size and area of your chest after the surgery and you will have some sensation of the actual breast implant.
The feeling will depend completely on the solution used (saline or silicone), the size of the implant in relation to the original breast size as well as the placement. Scar tissue can also affect touch.
The truth is that it varies, but for the most part it’s safe to assume that they will feel some remnant of the surgery if not the implant itself. The real question is, do they care?
What Do Men Think of Breast Implants?
This is a split result! Overall it comes down to personal preference. A 2016 study released by the St. Josef Hospital in Bochum, Germany, found that “about half of men nowadays accept artificially enlarged breasts in women.”
It’s a 50/50 split. The reasons why some men may like or dislike breast implants in women they are pursuing varies as well.
You should feel comfortable in your own skin and make this decision for yourself first. Others’ thoughts on breast implants should only come as a secondary factor in your decision. There are alternatives to breast implants, such as receiving internal bra lift plastic surgery, that may provide you with the results you are looking for.
The key to being happy with your decision is to select a qualified plastic surgeon that you trust. Plastic surgery is a medical procedure, albeit cosmetic, that should be performed by a qualified and experienced professional.
How Long Do Breast Implants Last?
Breast implants, if performed by a qualified surgeon, can typically last more than twenty years before replacement breast implant surgery may be needed. Older implant surgeries done prior to advancements in cosmetic surgery may last less time. As a provider of the best breast implants in the Miami area, we cannot stress enough how important an experienced surgeon is to ensure long-lasting results.
