Welcome to Part 2 of my EKI Boobie Mantras! :) In Part 1 we looked at the practical side of getting breast implants. Part 2 focuses a bit more on the way you’ll be feeling...
Get Breast Implants For You And No One Else
It’s such a positive thing to do something totally for you. So it’s important to be clear at the get-go that the decision to get breast implants is 100% yours.
It’s great to be supported by friends, family and loved ones (especially your significant other) but if you’re undecided and you feel like someone’s trying to sway your decision, only go ahead when you’re ready.
Have Patience During Your Breast Augmentation Journey
I know sometimes it's easier said than done! You'll notice I slip the word ‘patience’ in a lot here on EKI.
But that’s because it is so important. Rome wasn’t built in a day and, building references aside, it takes time for your boobs to settle and you to see the end result of your breast augmentation.
So... whether it’s patience while you save up the money for your breast surgery or patience to get in your first bra patience is probably THE most important Boobie Mantra.
Be Proud of your Breast Implant Decision
If nothing ever changed there would be no butterflies
This is your decision and your body. There are haters out there. You may be unlucky enough to encounter one (or more).
But if you’re ever faced with a situation where someone questions your decision or seems to be asking you to justify yourself be proud of who you are and the decisions you’ve made.
Girl, it’s a brave decision you’ve made to make a positive change to your body!
We Boobie Sisters have got your back (albeit it virtually most of the time) and those that doubt are actually just naive most of the time. You have to live this journey to understand it.
Love Your Body
When you look in the mirror what do you see?
We’ve all had body struggles of some sort. Addressing a body concern is liberating but be aware it can direct your attention to other parts of you.
You may not even love your breasts after getting implants straight away but if you want to you can get there.
Build others up because you know what it’s like to be torn down. And we are the worst at tearing ourselves down. Fight against the body shamers – including yourself.
You'll learn so much about yourself after deciding to make a positive body change. So many women say their confidence soars after getting breast implants.
Who knows, you may even learn along the way how to be a little bit more patient ;) and, I hope, proud of who you are :)
Thoughts from Dr. Jeremy PyleIt is not uncommon that a woman will come in with a significant other for the consultation. That's both appreciated and very useful.
Having an extra set of ears and an educated partner can be really helpful. It becomes less than helpful when the partner desires a significant say in things like implant size. That's an easy thing to diffuse, though, by just reminding that person that when you, the patient, are the most happy and the most comfortable, everyone wins.
