You are thinking about getting a new pair. There could be a number of reasons why. For example, you were born flat-chested. You lost your boobs ever since you started your fitness journey. Or simply you don’t like your boobs. You are not proud of them. It’s ok girl. Nobody is perfect. And there is absolutely nothing wrong with enhancing your body if that’s what you want.
But, like with any other important decision, you got to be well informed and think it through. That way you wont regret anything you decide and you will be happy with the outcome. So I am going to share with you the main things you should know before getting a boob job.
Determine the reason why you want a boob job. Is this really about you? Is this to feel better about yourself? Or is this about your mate and what they like? Nobody has the right to determine how you should or shouldn’t look according to their preferences.
Take the cost into account. The average cost of breast augmentation surgery is $3,708, according to 2014 statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. So its not an order of fries. If it’s not something you can afford right now, start saving for it.
Are you a candidate? According to plasticsurgery.org you are a candidate for breast augmentation if:
- You are physically healthy.
- You have realistic expectations.
- Your breasts are fully developed.
- You are bothered by the feeling that your breasts are too small
- You are dissatisfied with your breasts losing shape and volume over time.
- You are unhappy with the upper part of your breast appearing “empty”
- Your breasts are asymmetrical.
- One or both breasts failed to develop normally or have an elongated shape.
Types of implants. There are saline, silicon, gummy bear type, round, smooth, textured, etc. Each of these types of breast implants are different and offer different advantages according to your expectations and preferences. And it doesn’t matter which type you choose, you have to monitor your breast implants and follow-up with your surgeon for future check-ups.
Risks: As with any other surgery, there are risks to keep in mind. Some of them are bleeding, infection, persistent pain, implant leakage or rupture, wrong position of the implant, loss of nipple sensation, fluid accumulation among others. You will have to sign a consent prior to the surgery to make sure you understand and accept these risks.
Before you make this important decision do your research. Make sure you know everything about this type of procedure, how to prepare for it, be well aware of the risks, and one of the main things, make sure you choose the right surgeon. Make sure he is certified, experienced, and honest. Ask him to see some pictures of other patients he has worked with. Trusting your surgeon will take away a lot of stress before and after surgery.
Do your homework and everything will go well. Next summer you will be rocking your new puppies in a cute bikini! YOU GO GIRL!
