While there a millions of women satisfied with their breasts, there are many reasons why women opt for breast augmentation or augmentation mammoplasty.
Although the media likes to portray celebrities like Pamela Anderson, the reality is, a good breast augmentation should look natural and that’s all that most women want.
Breast augmentation gives women an opportunity to either reshape their breasts (often after rapid weight loss, childbearing or age), or increase their size to lift their self- confidence. It’s not necessarily about showing off “their goods” like so many people misconceive.If you are considering breast augmentation, there are some important points however, that you should consider before going ahead:
1. Why Do You Want the Surgery?
Getting breast augmentation, or breast enlargement should be about your own self-image. You should consider breast augmentation surgery for your own reasons of self-esteem, not because someone else, whether romantic partner, boss or mother wants you to. Getting breast augmentation to please someone else isn’t going to make your life easier, and it’s likely that they’re looking at you in the wrong way if they’re asking you to.
In addition to that, beast augmentation isn’t your ticket to success. Although the magazines will try to play on your insecurities and suggest that successful women are beautiful by their definition (big boobs, and tight figure), your success is dependent on the type of person you are, rather than what you look like. While there are some professions that will favour a different body type, your expectations of what the surgery will do for your looks, job prospects and social life should be realistic.
2. Can You Afford the Surgery?
Breast augmentation is considered an elective surgery and because of this most health insurance policies don’t cover it. It’s also quite expensive and not something you want to get a “cheap” alternative for. Any type of surgery needs to be taken very seriously, as there are not only the possibilities of complications during surgery, but also in recovery.
If finances are tight, either save up, or consult with your plastic surgeon about some kind of financial arrangement where you could pay for the surgery on a schedule – rather than taking a cheaper alternative overseas. There are regulations and
medical safeguards to receiving breast augmentation in countries like Australia and the USA that countries such as Thailand, simply cannot offer.
Breast Augmentation surgery also requires a fairly long recovery time. So it’s important to consider whether you are able to take the time off from work or other obligations? Do you have a support system that can help you through the recovery process?
