Making the Decision
Making the Decision to Get Breast Implants
Before you make a firm decision to undergo breast augmentation surgery, make sure you’re doing it for the right reasons. Most women get breast implants simply because that’s what they want for themselves. However, a small percentage of women opt for implants for the wrong reasons, which include the following:
Your Significant Other: It is never wise to get any sort of plastic surgery simply because it’s what your significant other wants. Like most all major plastic surgery procedures, breast augmentation changes your body permanently. Yes, you can have the breast implants removed, but your breasts will never be exactly the same as they were prior to surgery. Having a surgery you don’t want will only make you unhappy, and it will cause resentment towards your partner, in addition to the other problems the relationship already has.
To Save a Failing Relationship: Breast implants will not fix a relationship that’s failing. Breast implants increase breast size, help even out breast size, etc., but that’s the extent of what breast implants can do.
You’re Depressed: Breast implants won’t change the fact that you’re depressed. Breast implants don’t change anything other than breast size. If you are clinically depressed, breast augmentation surgery is not the cure.
There are plenty of good reasons to get breast implants. The most common reasons are:
You Don’t Like Your Small Breasts: If you have small breasts and you are unhappy with them, breast augmentation is a great choice!
Breastfeeding and/or Weight Loss: Breastfeeding and/or significant weight loss can both do a number on the breasts. Volume is often loss, and sagging can be a real issue. Breast augmentation surgery can help to correct both of these problems. If sagging is severe, a breast lift may be needed in addition to the breast implants.
Asymmetry: Sometimes one breast is larger than the other, or is shaped differently than the other. Breast augmentation can help to even out the difference.
Tuberous Breasts: Women with tuberous sometimes choose breast augmentation as a way of having larger and more naturally shaped breasts.
More Clothing Options: Small-chested women sometimes feel insecure in certain types of clothing. This may include lingerie, swimsuits, or anything that accentuates how small their breasts are. Breast augmentation can give a boost of confidence so that a wider variety of clothing can be worn more confidently.
Feeling Uncomfortable While Nude: Many women feel very uncomfortable being topless in front of their partners. Even if their partner loves them just the way they are, no amount of love can make them feel comfortable in their own skin. In this case, breast augmentation give you more confidence in the bedroom by allowing you to focus more on your partner than on your insecurities.
The bottom line is that you should only get breast augmentation because you want it. As long as it is something you genuinely want, and not an attempt at saving a reltionship, curing depression, etc., you should be very happy with your decision.
