If I get breast implants, have I cheated my way to a good body?
I get asked this question a LOT. Straight up girl, the idea that getting breast implants is cheating your way to a good body is crazy.
A "Good” Body (with or without breast implants)
You may have good genes and are naturally fit, or work hard at the gym to get body confidence. Any which way, your body is your body.
Getting breast implants can enhance, and compliment what you already have... giving you a newfound body confidence.
Having said that, it's really normal in the early days and weeks after surgery to be a little shocked about your new breast implant body proportions. A good kind of shocked! So, don't be surprised if you feel a little awkward in your skin at first while adjusting to your new girls.
Don't Be Quick to Judge
We do tend to judge too quickly. Have you ever noticed a woman with a beautiful figure... someone in proportion... and thought "I'd like that"? By choosing to get breast implants you can give yourself this.
Ok, so there are a few ways you can 'cheat' your way to a good body... but they're all just optical illusions through a bit of wardrobe trickery, fake tan and even make-up! Body shaping apparel and push-up bras are our secret underwear weapons... am I right?!
But where breast implants are concerned you will have made a very considered decision to take a surgical route to change your breasts. And it's not an easy ride... surgery is a trauma to your body. There's that painful 'I have to be patient' phase too, where you wait for your new breasts to evolve and allow your body to fully recover.
Care a little less What Others think about Breast implants
If your breasts become the 'icing on the cake' of your body then be proud girl.
I'd go so far as to say maybe care a little less about what other people think.
If you now see yourself the same way you once saw the woman with the enviable figure then you’ve achieved pride in your body, and that’s enough to topple all the judgers and shamers in my book :)
Thoughts from Dr. Jeremy PyleSo few patients in our practice are trying to be perfect. Way more commonly, I hear: "I want to look like I did before kids" or " I just want to know what it feels like to have a bathing suit that fits."
If a person judges you for wanting to feel good dropping your towel before you walk into the shower, or to feel comfortable at the pool, that's not a you problem. That's a them problem.
