About a year and a half ago, I was looking for a new routine in the gym, and I came across a beautiful, spunky woman who helped me believe I could succeed. That woman was the one and only Hope Beel, and I'm so excited to have her as a guest today!
Hope has a passion for fitness, and she loves helping others find their confidence in the gym and teaching them the importance of nutrition and weight training. Hope has also decided to get a breast augmentation, and she has graciously agreed to share a little about that decision with us. Let's get started!
Jenny Eden: Deciding to get breast implants is a big decision for many women. How come you decided to take the plunge and get breast implants?
Hope Beel: I compete in bikini fitness, and reality is that when you drop body fat you lose your fat—most of the time places you don't wish first! I was a full C-cup, but after competing on and off they became less full! So I decided to get them. I have 425cc silicone breast implants, under the muscle.
I went big, but the reason being is because I was pretty big before and now they are full!
I did hear that a lot of people said go bigger than you think, so I went as big as my doctor (Dr. Stagnone in Dallas, TX) said I could go and I'm extremely happy with them.
Jenny Eden: A lot of women who will read this are trying to decide if they should get a breast augmentation. What advice would you give to someone who is unsure if they should go through with it?
Hope Beel: Do it for you and not someone else. I got a lot of confusion from friends and family when I got them done, because to them I had "perfect" boobs. But they didn't know the truth!
And I didn't feel like I had to explain myself to every single person, so I didn't!
You can't make everyone in the world happy, and I did this for me! So if other people's ideals or opinions are holding you back, don't focus on them and make your own decision.
Also, when finding a doctor, make sure that you do several consultations. I knew I had found the doctor who was for me because him and his office made me feel so comfortable!
Jenny Eden: And finally—just for fun—what have been some of your favorite parts about having breast implants?
Hope Beel: I'm in love with my new boobs! It's nice to know that no matter how lean I get I will always have them :-)
Once again, a BIG thank you to the wonderful Hope Beel for being so courageous and vulnerable with us today. Hope and I both want you to believe in yourself and to go after the things in life that are important to you—whether that's fitness goals or finally going through with getting an augmentation. Be sure to follow Hope on her social media accounts below, and I definitely recommend you get in contact with her if you're looking to get started on a fitness program this year!
Thoughts from Dr. Jeremy PyleMy favorite part is the "Do it for you, not someone else" advice. That's true for every step of the decision. As often as I say that, and as easy as it is for me to just say it, many women will end up choosing implants their partner wants.
We are constantly evolving and I think we have just about figured out the process of helping women in a quick, much less expensive way to have an implant exchange if too big or too small.
