Wrong Reasons for Pursuing Breast Augmentation

By in Breast Enhancement  »  ,

Breast Augmentation is the most popular cosmetic procedure in the United States and over 300 thousand women received implants last year. The feedback on the procedure has been outstanding and women are reporting a significant increase in their life satisfaction. Women who have received implants have experienced a boost in their self-esteem and are feeling more confident about themselves. There are many great reasons women choose to pursue breast implants. However, it is important to make sure that you are not doing it for the wrong reasons. Make sure that these following two things are not why you are pursuing a breast augmentation.

For revenge on an ex

A handful of women who have been seeking out breast augmentation surgery have recently gone through a divorce and are looking to get back at their exes for leaving them. It is important to make sure that you want the implants for your own personal reasons and not just to get revenge on one of your exes. That is not a good reason to pursue surgery.

However, a good reason to pursue a breast augmentation in this situation would be if you are looking to increase your self-confidence as you prepare to re-enter the dating game.

For somebody else’s reasons

A breast augmentation needs to be completely your own personal decision. It is important not to let others influence what you do with your body. You should not feel pressured into getting implants simply because your husband wants you to have bigger breasts. Nobody can make you do something that you don’t want for yourself.

Think about it first. If it is also something that you want and not just something that your partner is pressuring you into, it may interest you to know that women have also reported a better sex life after the procedure. Just thought you might want to know. Just make sure this is what you want, not just what somebody else wants.

If you think that a breast augmentation is right for you, have a talk with your board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ellen to discuss the many options available for your own personal needs.
