Breast augmentation — breast implant surgery — is the top cosmetic surgery performed today, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, with numerous studies showing that breast implants can help boost clients self-esteem, body image, and sexual satisfaction.
There are multiple potential benefits to breast augmentation surgery. The first and most obvious change is that you can improve your appearance by choosing an implant of sufficient size and shape to improve and flatter your figure and profile, which can lead to an increase in your natural confidence.
The Benefits of Breast Implants
At the same time, it’s very important to choose the correct implant size to create a natural look to bring out your body’s best. On top of altering your appearance to your specifications and preference, general life after augmentation can see a noticeable improvement as well.
Many women struggle with self-confidence issues, particularly regarding their breasts. Post-surgery, many clients have found that many of these issues are much improved post-surgery. This boost in self-confidence can have a knock-on or domino effect of positive improvements in many aspects of your life that extend far beyond a pride in physical appearance. However, you shouldn’t forget that getting breast implants is primarily a cosmetic change that shouldn’t be viewed as a cure-all for any body image issues you may be facing.
Breast Augmentation After Pregnancy
Look at the case of 41-year-old Kristen Chase, a self-described “generous 36B” before giving birth to four children in seven years. She says: “After my fourth child, my breast tissue was just a deflated sack. My body bounced right back after the pregnancies, but my breasts didn’t. I wanted my body back.” For women who did not previously had body image issues, who were comfortable in their own skin, who find themselves on the wrong end of everyday life, understandably wish to look as good as they did before marriage or after having children.
The important thing you need to consider is why you want to augment your breasts. Rod J. Rohrich, MD, chairman of plastic surgery at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, has come to recognize patients who have the wrong reasons: “I want to do it if the patient is doing it for themselves — not for their new boyfriend, or to save their marriage.”
He told WebMD that he has refused to treat patients who are going through major life changes or stressors, like going through a divorce, or in the aftermath of a death in the family. “I tell them up front it won’t change your life, won’t get you a new job, won’t get you more dates. But it can make you feel better about who you are.”
