Boobie Step #2: Name Your Fears

Get in Community

Do you know what Fear wants? Fear wants you to feel alone—like you’re the only one who feels a certain way. But I’m here to tell you that you are surround by women just like you!

I know it seems like a silly idea, but Fear begins to lose it’s power when we tell others about it… when we give it a name.

Above all else, Fear fears community.

That’s why it’s so important for you to join a community of women who are in the same boat as you are.

Ladies Only! » I want to invite you to my 100% private community for women who have or want breast implants…

It’s called “Bustmob!”

At the end of the day, none of us want our nosey co-workers or mother-in-laws hearing all about our breast augmentation, right? That’s why Bustmob is a completely secret Facebook group where:

  • None of your current friends will ever be notified or be able to see that you’ve joined
  • Your posts and photos are 100% private and only seen by other women in the group
  • You will never have to worry about Instagram deleting your account or following all the crazy rules of a forum

Hi, ladies!

I am so glad you're here, because I know exactly how it feels to look in the mirror and feel self conscious.

    I am afraid of getting them too big. I don’t want to look “fake”, I’ve always wanted boobs, and loved the ones I had when pregnant and nursing, I just dong wang to go too big for my body.

    I am afraid of spending the money to do this on myself when I have 3 boys. I am also afraid to spend all that money and then have something go wrong such as capsular contracture. And lastly I am afraid I won’t like the size. I am tall and thin, never had any boobs and I am afraid they will tell me the big size I was hoping for won’t fit.

    Now I want them BC I feel so masculine as a female. I’ve always been tall and flat chested. And I think I’m being hypocritical.
    How can I encourage my daughter to accept herself and love her body, when I want a BA.
    I don’t want people to know, but the size I want, will be obvious. I don’t want to hear the judgement and comments of others.

    • Jenny Eden says:

      For what it’s worth, my husband and I had sex just a few days after my recent revision and I didn’t experience any pain at all. He was very careful around them, and we still really enjoyed ourselves!

    • Jenny Eden says:

      I am going through this as we speak. I think you will be surprised how many of your friends/family raise their hand to help you during your recovery. Don’t be afraid to ask for help, and accept any help people offer immediately 🙂

      While it may certainly feel like forever, it will only be about 4 to 6 months. Worth it! 🙂

    Being a mom of two small children and the fear of something happening to me during or after surgery. All the “what ifs” can really be a hurtle.

    • Jenny Eden says:

      I can definitely relate to this! One thing that has made me feel so much better about having a little one is having very practical things in place like life insurance, an emergency fund, and a will.

  18. Anonymous says:

    Money, fear of losing my fitness goals, and of losing my ability to do certain things because of their size, and fear of the possible complications. Also deathly afraid of being put under- I have only been put under once for my wisdom teeth!

      +1 on all of these! All of these are great concerns to bring up to your plastic surgeon. Great surgeons will be able to address all of them and make you feel at ease 🙂

    I am afraid i wont be able to train like before…. loose my fitness achievement and feel like theyre to big that i could be able to be dynamic enought… feeling that theyre too big and maybe i would prefer to stay petite……. (from latin america where all the girls are supposed to be big!)

    • Jenny Eden says:

      It will definitely be a step backwards as far as your fitness goals are concerned. You will want to give your body several weeks to heal before you hit the gym really hard again. Totally worth it in my opinion to take 1 step back and 2 steps forward!

    I am scared of the complications with surgery. What if they turn out wrong. Botched. I am also worried about the cost. Will I be able to afford it.

    • Jenny Eden says:

      Complications are definitely a real risk when it comes to getting breast implants, but the likely is low. Still though, it happens, and we shouldn’t pretend that it doesn’t. For me, I decided that the risk was worth the reward, and if something goes wrong then we’ll fix it. Taking this approach gave me a real peace about it as well. As for cost, I will always recommend that you pay cash for the new additions 🙂

  40. Anonymous says:

    I’m 45 and scared of my mom and my family thinking I’m worldly. I am the only woman in my family with AA breasts, but I feel as if I would still be judged. I can’t tell anyone except for my best friend, husband and daughters (who are excited for me) for fear of being ostracized or humiliated for my choice.

    • Jenny Eden says:

      Since you used words like “worldly” and “judged,” I have to assume that you are feeling some sort of religious condemnation. First, check out my article, “Is God Mad at Women Who Get Breast Implants?“. Then, I want you to ask yourself… is everything ok in your heart between you and God about getting implants. If so, then that’s all that matters.

  41. Anonymous says:

    I’m afraid that there will be complications. The cost worries me as well. I want to say I’m doing this for myself but how do I know that I’m not doing it for my husband as well?

    • Jenny Eden says:

      Wait just a minute there… I hope you don’t feel like I’ve ever said that it’s not ok to be getting breast implants for your husband as well. A breast augmentation is certainly a decision that you should make completely for yourself—but if you’re excited about the enjoyment your husband will receive as well, then fantastic!! As I talk about in “Dressing Intentionally for My Husband,” I love that he loves my boobs! Just be sure not to get those two mixed up 🙂

  42. Anonymous says:

    I like how my breast feel, but I’m scared they’ll feel weird afterwards.
    I’m scared I won’t wake up.
    I love myself but I’m scared I’ll be seen as too plastic.
    I’m scared they won’t look natural and in harmony with my own body
    I’m scared they would shadow my nice looking bum since it’s because I have smaller boobs that is more noticeable.

    • Jenny Eden says:

      Let me hit on a couple of those… First, the way your breasts feel. The great news is that silicone implants and the new IDEAL implants feel almost identical to natural breast tissue. Just let your surgeon know your concerns, and they’ll make sure you get a natural feel. Also, I wouldn’t worry too much about your butt being overshadowed. You’ll just be curvy from all angles now 🙂

    I’m afraid I will end up with an autoimmune disease, my full body eczema will become uncontrollable or worsen my (now controlled) depression & anxiety.

    • Jenny Eden says:

      Hey girl, I strongly recommend that you get saline implants if you are at all concerned about autoimmune disease. This was a big reason why I choose saline instead of silicone, which I talk a lot about in the article, “Why I Chose Saline Instead of Silicone Breast Implants.” Don’t misunderstand… I’m not saying silicone implants cause autoimmune disease, saline over silicone simply eliminates one factor from the equation.

    • Jenny Eden says:

      Girl, I had that exact same fear! That was definitely one of the driving factors that led me to choosing saline instead of silicone. But remember, even if you decide on silicone, millions of women have them and there have been almost no cases of women getting sick from silicone breast implants.

    • Jenny Eden says:

      Thank you so much for your honestly, girl. I’m fairly concerned about the language that you’re using, especially getting “what you deserve.” I’m an old fashioned girl who believes that we reap what we sow. If you’re going into this with a victim mentality, you’re going to reap victim results. I’m going to challenge you get excited about this procedure and go full steam ahead, knowing that you are doing this for very healthy reasons!

      Are you providing a safe place to live? Are you putting healthy food on the table? Are you current on your rent or mortgage? Is your home heated in the Winter and air conditioned in the Summer? Do you see where I’m going with this? 🙂 If your family’s being cared for, then there’s absolutely nothing wrong then you doing something for yourself, girl—of course, with the support of your husband if applicable. Chin up. It’s a good thing.

    I am afraid of them somehow looking worse than what I already have (nearly nothing!). I am afraid of something going wrong. Oddly enough, I am anxious at that “post boob” time period where you know everyone at work or the gym are noticing and staring and making me feel self-conscious.

    I have small tight boobs and I am afraid that after getting implants it may look too tight and high and fake! And then I may regret it.

    • Jenny Eden says:

      I feel like a lot of us have seen really small women with huge implants, and it’s created an unrealistic expectation that implants look huge on small women. Check out women like Sarah Jessica Parker for really a proportionate look!

    • Jenny Eden says:

      Ahh, family… it’s almost always the biggest concern when it comes to getting breast implants, and I totally understand why. Without minimizing your fear, I want you to know that it’s perfectly acceptable if your friends and family aren’t 100% on board with your decision to get a breast augmentation. Be sure to check out my article, “How to Respond to Friends and Family Who Don’t Approve.

      Whatever you do, make sure that you are going to a reputable surgeon, and you can be sure that you’ll be truthfully and carefully taken care of. You can see if I recommend a surgeon in your area right here.

    • Jenny Eden says:

      Two quick things, girl… first, breast implants do NOT cause cancer. There has been study after study confirming this, so I hope that sets your mind at ease. The problem with implants is that they can definitely mask cancer, as you state, and that brings me to my second point. I can’t recommend enough that you stop getting mammograms (whether you have implants or not). Instead, get breast thermography!

    • Jenny Eden says:

      Hard and stiff implants are a sure sign of something having gone wrong, such as capsular contracture. Speaking from personal experience, even saline implants have a soft, cushy feel to them 🙂

    I’m scared that if my 1yr old daughter grows up and has small breasts I can’t really give her a “be comfortable with your body, you’re perfect just the way you are” speech because I didn’t believe that about myself =/

    • Jenny Eden says:

      I completely disagree! During my late teens, I developed a really significant drug addiction. But just because I did drugs doesn’t mean that I can’t give my daughter the “don’t do drugs” speech. In fact, I plan to double down on it! 🙂 Whether or not you got implants for the right or wrong reasons, you can teach your daughter both from your life wins and life losses 🙂

    I’m scared everyone would think I’m a fake Christian because getting plastic surgery could look like I’m saying God didn’t make me perfect already

    • Jenny Eden says:

      Hey, good news! Christians believe that God didn’t make us perfect. We were born into a fallen state, and that may very well contribute to the reason that many of us decide to do cosmetic enhancements like wear makeup, get nice haircuts, get braces, or even get implants. If you’re more worried about what judgemental Christians think about your surgery than God, swap those priorities, girl! 🙂 Also, check out my article called, “Is God Mad at Women Who Get Breast Implants?

      I felt the same way about our first house. I loved that house, but I also love the house we’re in now. I mean, come on… It’s not like your current boobs are falling apart and that your new boobs will be a perfect new development. Both sets will have things you like and dislike, and there will be parts of your current boobs that you will miss. It’s just how it goes 🙂

    Im really only afraid of spending 5000+ on this surgery. I am proud of the way I look and judgment from anyone means very little. I have 4 kids and I hate spending $ on myself.

    • Jenny Eden says:

      There are a lot of women who feel the same way, girl. I calls this “Mommy Martyrdom Syndrome.” Yes, as moms we have to sacrifice a lot, but it’s not wise to sacrifice everything. There is zero shame in spending money on yourself, especially when you’ve done such an incredible job providing for them.

    I’m 27 and I’m still afraid of telling my mother and have no idea how to even begin to tell her.

    • Jenny Eden says:

      I can relate, girl. For me, the most important realization I had during that whole struggle was that I must respect my parent’s opinion, but not be oppressed by their opinion. Respect an opinion means that you will consider it and give it space in your life. Being oppressed by an opinion means that you allow someone else’s thoughts to control your actions—which is unhealthy, of course. Be strong. Be respectful. Be courageous.

    • Jenny Eden says:

      My husband doesn’t understand why he has to raise AND lower the toilet seat, but he knows it’s important because it’s important to me. Good men don’t need complete understanding to support what’s important to their ladies. I’m sorry that’s so blunt, but I worry about how life’s disasters will impact your relationship if something like breast implants is causing such anxiety… :-/

    My concerns are I am 45 . Most women having this are a lot younger..

    I am scared that due to my age (21) people will make the assumption that I am naive and don’t really have any idea of what I want yet. Nobody has ever understood and its funny really, those who say “you look great as you are! Why ruin yourself?” are the ones who poked fun and teased me for having “pancakes” in the first place. I have been made to feel as though I am much less of a woman and it breaks my heart that certain people still don’t and will never understand.

    • Jenny Eden says:

      I can totally relate to this… I was 21 when I got married, so I heard a lot of “you don’t know what you want yet” type of comments. 10 years later, it’s still one of the best decisions of my life 🙂 As for the folks who picked at you, haters are going to hate.

    • Jenny Eden says:

      I fully believe that there are women out there who have gotten sick from their breast implants, but it’s also important to realize how tiny of a percentage it is. As in .000001%. The reason it seems bigger than it is, is because the volume of their stories is so much louder than the volume of the other millions of women who haven’t had any problems. It’s similar to the Westboro Baptist nuts who go around picketing funerals… it’s a total of like 50 people, but it seems like more because of how obnoxious they are.

      Obviously, that’s a very legit concern.

      Did you know that a lot of women LOVE how their breast implants look after having kids? Often time, having a baby will make your breast implants look more natural than before—a perk a lot of women really prefer!

    • Jenny Eden says:

      Breast implants aren’t going to make you look good or bad—they are only going to enhance what’s already there. I mean that in the physical and emotional sense. If you don’t know that you’re beautiful now, getting implants isn’t going to do it for you, girl—at least not longterm. Believe me… I know.

    I am scared that I will disappoint my family, that they’ll think less of me. That if I choose the wrong size, I will later be disappointed with my decision.

I want to do this so I feel sexy for me, but I am worried about what others will think of me for being ‘fake’.

      There are a lot of women who are superior athletes that have breast implants, but it’s important to realize that they just aren’t compatible with some lifestyles. Bodyrock Lisa is a great example of that! On the other side of the coin, women like Jen Heward have oversized implants and still workout like crazy without any problems.

      I can relate, girl—especially as I approach my upcoming revision. It’s going to be very important for you to have a Boobie Guide to show your surgeon to ensure they know exactly what look you are going for. Be prepared to be told you might need a lift as well, as that’s pretty common for women who have breastfed.

      One of the best parts of breast implants is that they amplify what you currently have! As for asymmetry, the best surgeons will be sure and use different sized implants to ensure a really nice, even look 🙂

    I’m afraid of scars and/or keloids. I’m afraid they won’t feel as great as my own breasts feel. I love the shape of my own breasts, I just want them to be (much) bigger. I’m afraid implants will completely change their shape. I’m afraid they’ll look fake.

    • Jenny Eden says:

      Great news, girl! All of those concerns are very common and easy to address. For your scarring, please be sure to get my Breast Augmentation Recovery Kit. It contains a Scar Salve and a product called Boobie Butter that will ensure you have the most beautiful results possible. As for the feel and shape, it sounds like you would be a great fit for silicone implants—maybe even the anatomical versions.

    I’m afraid that my Christian co-workers and Christian community will judge me harshly for getting breast implants.

    • Jenny Eden says:

      Boy do I understand how you feel, girl! My husband and I are very involved in church, and we even talked to our pastor about considering breast implants (he didn’t see anything wrong with it, as long as it was for the right reasons). It also inspired an article I wrote called, “Is God Mad at Women Who Get Breast Implants?

    • Jenny Eden says:

      In almost all breast augmentations, the direction your nipples point will not radically change from how they currently are unless you also get some type of lift. If they point sideways, they will point more sideways with implants, for example. Just be sure to let your surgeon know what you want during your consultation!

    I’m afraid I won’t be able to workout at the same intensity that I do now. I’m also afraid that I won’t love my new boobies.

    Judgement. That people won’t respect me or my opinions. That it may affect my future daughters opinions of me. To tell my mom.

    • Jenny Eden says:

      The thing about judgement is that it almost always comes from a place of insecurity and jealously. When you face it, smile and remember that you didn’t get breast implants to impress a single person other than yourself!

    I have a few different fears about getting my BA done (which is actually scheduled for 11/30/15). One.. I still have not told anyone in my family except my husband and two teenage sons. My mom always tried to talk me out of it any time I mentioned wanting to get a BA done because she doesn’t understand just how being small chested has affected me. Two.. I am afraid of looking to top heavy and unproportionate due to my small frame. Three.. I don’t want people to look at me differently. Four.. what if I have this done and something goes wrong.

    • Jenny Eden says:

      All very valid concerns! Ultimately, I would encourage you to remember that this is decision for you. Not anyone else. Keep working the Boobie Steps and keep your goals in plain view!

    I’m afraid that my family will judge my decision unfairly. I’m nervous about explaining my choice to my daughters as they grow older and begin to question their own bodies, self confidence, and my reasons for needing to change myself. I’m terrified that something can go wrong, and I won’t be totally happy with my results.

    • Jenny Eden says:

      I’ve thought a lot about how I’m going to approach the conversation of breast augmentation with my daughter, and I honestly think it’s going to be a very healthy conversation. When I think of my mom, I would love for her to have an elective procedure if it helped her enjoy her life more fully!

    That since I have a daughter spending the money on getting it done is irresponsible. That there cld be complications. That I don’t like how they turn out. That they look fake. People judging me for it

    I’m afraid of doing something for appearances that might impact my health. I feel like an irresponsible mom for putting myself at risk of complications when my body is currently healthy and working properly. I’m afraid of send the wrong message to my daughter. I’m worried about knowing if a guy will like me for me or will just see me as a body with nice boobs. ?

    • Jenny Eden says:

      All of these concerns are both healthy and wise. Elective, cosmetic procedures should be carefully weighed to determine if the benefits are going to out weight the rewards. I would argue that healthy, happy moms raise happy, healthy daughters. If this is something you genuinely desire, I would keep the consideration on the table. If you’re wise enough to be concerned about how it will affect your daughter, you will be wise enough to approach the conversation with her in an edifying way.

    My family are extremely against breast implants, but for years I have always brought the subject about wanting to get them because I am unsatisfied with their appearance. Only they insist that I am being insecure and that I will ruin my body. Nevertheless, I have finally decided to actively pursue starting the process to getting breast implants.However, I still need their support and I fear that they will turn their backs on me for my decision.

    • Jenny Eden says:

      Hey girl, I’m really sorry to hear about the struggle you’re having with your family—but I have to disagree with you. You don’t need their support, what you need is their respect. There are going to be a lot of things you do in your life where your family disagrees with you, but that are the right decision for you. This is one of those moments. Stand your ground. Be strong. Make this decision for yourself.

    I am afraid of how people will perceive me and will judge me based on this decision. Also, of being botched or making the rest of my body looking overall larger.

    • Jenny Eden says:

      You know what I’ve learned? That the way people perceive me has way more to do with the way I carry myself, the way I speak to others, the way I smile or hold eye contact. Sure, the size of my breasts play a role, but they certainly aren’t the main determining factor 🙂

    • Jenny Eden says:

      This is a very legit and common fear that most women have when going into a breast augmentation. The fact that you’re working the Boobie Steps is going to play a huge role in you knowing everything you need to do to get the results you want. Keep it up, girl!

    Im scared i will look bigger all round not just my breast
    the pain really is playing on my mind
    I’m scared about the catalo operation

    • Jenny Eden says:

      Similar to the fear below yours, your overall look is going to largely depend on the way you dress! And for the pain, there is a lot you can do to make sure that you have the most comfortable recovery possible. In fact, that’s exactly why I created my Recovery Kit and my Recovery Candles.

    • Jenny Eden says:

      Be sure to tell your surgeon that you want to have a very natural look, without a lot of “upper pole fullness.” They might even opt for a breast implant that has more of an anatomical shape instead of the more popular round implants to help this happen.

    • Jenny Eden says:

      Botched breast augmentations are almost unheard of. I know that’s hard to believe because of the ridiculous television shows, but breast augmentations have the highest success and satisfaction rate of any plastic surgery. As for your family, remember that you’re a grown woman and you don’t need their approval to be happy 🙂

    • Jenny Eden says:

      Great news! Both of those concerns are very simple points for your surgeon to ensure are met, especially if you give them a really good idea of what you want to look like after your procedure. Finding your Boobie Guide is going to be a really important step for you!

    I’m afraid if what my family and friends will think, and that my implants won’t turn out how I had hoped.

    • Jenny Eden says:

      Those are two extremely valid concerns, and I would encourage you to go into this procedure courageously. If family and friends don’t agree, that’s perfectly ok. Also, but sure you find your Boobie Guide so that your surgeon knows exactly what type of looking you’re going for!

    I’m afraid of what my parents will say when I tell them I’m (finally) going to get a breast augmentation.

    • Jenny Eden says:

      Parents can definitely be tricky, especially if you haven’t naturally set some healthy boundaries. Remember that there’s a big difference between respecting their opinion and living your own life. This is a decision about you that you are choosing to let them know about, and their approval isn’t required for your happiness 🙂
