Shedding the Stigma Surrounding Cosmetic Surgery

I'm on a personal mission to get rid of the stigma that still surrounds cosmetic surgery in many regions. Why am I on this mission? A small surgery changed my life, and I have never regretted it. I was a very shy child with little confidence due to my protruding ears. It sounds like such a small problem to many people, but it affected me and my self esteem greatly. I saved up in high school while working a part-time job, and as soon as I could afford it, I got my parents to agree to let me have my ears "pinned back" when I was 16. My confidence skyrocketed immediately, and I finally began enjoying life for the first time. I want to help others facing similar problems know that they are not alone, and I hope I can touch many lives with my new blog!

Weight-Related Considerations To Ponder When You Want Breast Augmentation


One of the many reasons that women plan to have their breasts augmented is because they aren't happy with their figure after weight loss. If you've been overweight and have lost a lot of weight, the fat from your breasts will typically reduce considerably — and this can leave them lacking the shape that they may have previously had. 

Breast augmentation surgery following weight loss can be a good idea, but you'll want to give some thought to a series of weight-related topics before you move forward. If you have any concerns about this procedure, speaking to your surgeon at length about your situation should alleviate them. Here are some considerations to ponder.

Type Of Weight Loss 

If you're going to be investing in breast augmentation, you want to be pleased with how this part of your body looks in not only the months ahead but also in the years ahead. Consider how you lost the weight, as this can reveal how dedicated you are to a heavy lifestyle. For example, if you slowly lost the weight as a result of making a series of health-conscious changes in your life, there's a higher probability that you'll be able to keep the weight off — and thus continue to be happy with the look of your breasts. Conversely, if you lost the weight because you were sick, for example, you may quickly gain it back.

Ability To Maintain A Healthy Lifestyle

You should honestly ask yourself if you're aware of how you can maintain your weight not that you've lost it. Someone who can identify a series of steps that are critical to weight maintenance is a better candidate for breast augmentation, as she will be more likely to prevent weight gain. Conversely, someone who doesn't have a solid grasp of how to achieve a healthy lifestyle moving forward could see eventual weight gain that can affect her appearance.

Attainment Of Ideal Weight

Try to also think about whether you've reached your ideal weight yet. While you might be eager to have your breasts augmented as soon as you begin to lose weight, it can be better to wait until you've hit your goal. If you get augmentation while you're still losing weight, the fat in your breasts can decrease in size and leave you with breasts that might be smaller than you wanted — perhaps prompting you to schedule another procedure. When you wait, you'll be able to pick the right size of implants.
