For someone who has not ever had to breastfeed, a woman wanting to get a breast augmentation procedure done afterwards sounds a little odd. It sounded weird to me too because I had no idea what it was like. First, everyone kept asking me, “Has your milk come in yet?” My baby girl was nursing, so I had assumed it had. One day, my breasts hurt like crazy (worse than they ever had during that time of the month), and the swelled up more than I ever thought they could. Because of how quickly they had grown, my sore, swollen breasts had stretch marks on them like you wouldn’t believe. It was disappointing because I had gone my entire pregnancy without developing too many stretch marks. Of course, there were a couple of small ones on my stomach and a couple on my inner thighs, but these new ones on my breasts were large and visible.
Most people think that women who get breast augmentation procedures done are wealthy and vain. At one point I had a very similar mindset. Now, however, I understand where women are coming from when they want one simple thing fixed. For most women, our breasts are something that represents our womanhood. We wear bras every day to make sure that they look good, and we are proud when they provide a food source for our children. Obviously, you are no less of a woman if your breasts have stretch marks, scars, or some other abnormal feature, but still, some women do feel less complete when there is something wrong with them. As a woman, it is your right to do what you need to do to feel like a beautiful woman, so if that means getting a breast augmentation surgery, then go right ahead. Read on for some valuable tips for this important surgery.
1. Take the time to research different plastic surgeons to find one who specializes and excels in breast augmentation procedures. Ask your friends and family and look online to find all of the information that you need before making an appointment
2. Once you have an appointment, realize that it does not mean that you are committed to having the procedure done by that doctor (or at all). With such a significant surgery, it is a very good idea to talk to a plastic surgeon before deciding that you want to have the breast augmentation procedure done. If you do not get warm and fuzzy feelings from the doctor, then feel free to choose someone else. If the procedure no longer interests you after hearing about the risks and complications, then feel free to back out.
3. Discuss the procedure with your significant other before you go through with it. Although you have a right to change your body how you see fit, breast augmentation surgeries are not cheap. Assuming you share your money with each other, it is a financial decision that you two need to make together.
