While doing your BA research, you'll find lots of positive and also plenty of negative stories out there. Surgery comes with risks and sadly, for a small number of women, complications do occur.
But what if you just don't like your implants? What then?
The dark side
Thankfully most women are happy with their decision to get implants and are satisfied with their surgical outcome.
But, over on the darker side of breast implants, there are women who never adjust to their implants and experience feelings of regret, remorse and disappointment.
I don't claim to be an expert in the psychological side of breast implants by any means! But, from what I've read, when you have strong feelings of remorse after a BA it can often be because your expectations were unmet.
The healing journey after a BA is likely to include some fleeting feelings of buyers remorse.
What did I do?!
Luckily, for most of us it's just that... fleeting. And we come out on the other side of healing with acceptance, satisfaction and love for our new girls. But if buyer's remorse is a bit more persistent in your thought process and for some reason you don't like your results, the first thing you should do is: give it some time.
You should wait until your girls have fully settled (at around the 6-month mark) before making a final judgment on your outcome. Patience really is key.
Most of your boobie bummers (including the boobie blues) go away once you've had time to adjust and you've hit your healing stride.
Things work out best...
Things work out best for those who make the most of how things work out.
If you can't shake the feelings of buyer's remorse, whatever you end up deciding to do should be right for you and decided by only you.
If the reason you're not in love with your implants is down to a cosmetic complication (e.g. double bubble) you should know... most problems can be fixed. One of your options after you've given yourself some headspace is to consider a revision.
If, in the end, you choose to end your boobie journey and decide you don't want implants anymore... that's okay too. Ultimately, you've got to do what's right for you.
The thing to realize when you embark on a boobie journey is that it's okay to feel a full range of emotions. It's a perfectly normal process of adjusting to and accepting the life (and body) change breast implants bring.
