Jenny Eden: Today, we are joined by the beautiful Larissa Bartolo! Larissa is an internationally published glamour model (and Marine Biology student!), and I love this girl's heart.
When I reached out to Larissa to ask if she would be willing to chat with us about her decision to get breast implants, she responded immediately and is really excited to encourage you along in your journey. Enjoy! :-)
Why Larissa Decided to Get Breast Implants
Personally, I have always wanted larger breasts. My natural breasts sat in a nice position and were also a decent cup size (32C), however, I was not happy with the size.
After getting 400cc High Profile Silicone breast implants, I am now around a size 32E. I always wanted the more natural look, therefore I only wore my bandage top for half the recommended time to ensure the "drop" was sufficient (Generally, breast implants will "drop" or settle within 6 months of having the procedure done.)
I love how my breasts sit fairly lower than a lot of breast implants that I've seen, but I would recommend talking to your plastic surgeon about your personal circumstances before taking measures into your own hands.
Larissa's Advice to Women Getting Breast Implants
Always remember that getting breast implants is a permanent decision. Yes you can remove the implants if required, but your natural breast tissue will not be the same as before... therefore they will not be the same again if removed.
That being said, there are a few things you need to ask yourself when deciding whether or not breast implants are right for you:
- Whats your main reason for wanting the breast implants?
- How will this impact on your overall self-esteem?
- How long have you been thinking of the procedure?
- What / Who has encouraged you to have this procedure done?
Also, keep in mind that the size will impact your overall dress size... so get ready to throw out a lot of your old clothing and start again and begin the journey of finding your new bra size.
Larissa's Favorite Parts about Having Breast Implants
Since having my breast implants, I have become a lot more self confident with my body and have been able to wear the outfits I've always wanted to wear.
Overall, I am happy with my decision and highly recommend breast augmentation to anyone considering it. The fact that I can wear outfits, fill them out, and feel proud to look good in my fav tops or bikinis is definitely the biggest plus for me!
