Many women are unhappy with the size and shape of their breasts. Some will wear clothes that hide them, others will buy expensive bras to enhance or shape them, and others will have plastic surgery to change them. There’s no right or wrong choice; each woman must decide what they feel most comfortable with. It’s really important that your choice to have implants is yours. If you’re going to have breast augmentation surgery to please a significant other, you should keep one critical fact in mind: it’s your body, and you have to live with your decision.
If you have made the decision to have breast implants, it’s time to decide how big to go. The decision shouldn’t be made on a whim or a picture of the hottest celebrity. It’s a decision you should carefully consider and discuss in great detail with your doctor, because in reality you can go too big.
If want your breasts to look natural, you need to ensure they are proportionate with the rest of your body. Going to large or too small can make you be disappointed in the outcome.
Knowing what you want to look like is important in your decision making, as is determining if the size you want fits your lifestyle. Some athletic women will find that very large breasts just aren’t for them. What women will find if they have overdone it with implant size is that their breasts can get in the way of physical activities, can cause shoulder and neck pain, and it may be hard to find clothes that fit. Also, greater weight in the breast can lead to sagging of the breast due to the weight of the implants. Large breasts can cause back pain, especially if you spend a lot of time on your feet.
You should also consider that your body will change over time, as will your perception of your body. Things that are beautiful and sexy to you in your twenties will likely not be the same things that are beautiful and sexy to you in your forties and fifties.
It’s very important that you have a lot of confidence in your decision and in your surgeon. Ultimately the final decision will be yours, but a good surgeon can help guide you in what best suits you, answer your questions and ease your concerns. An ethical plastic surgeon will dissuade you from getting implants that will make your body disproportionate or cause complications. It is necessary for you to make it very clear to your surgeon exactly what you want and what you definitely don’t want, so there is no confusion.
