Breast Augmentation - Is it for you?
Lets face it, perky boobs are pretty to look at, or so I’ve been told. Since I haven’t seen the underside of my boobs since I was like 8 years old, I can only imagine what I would look like with perky boobs. Breast Augmentation is on the rise again up 39% in the last 10 years.
I’m sure that there are a couple reasons why it is on the rise. The first I would think is safety reasons. Since the implementation of saline solution, rather than silicone, boob jobs have taken a fast track to safety. No more are their stories on the news of women who have suffered horrendous, disfiguring complications due to silicone leakages.
The second being Dr. 90210. Hey, we have to admit Dr. Rey is a cutie! Who wouldn’t want that hunk of man fondling our lady lumps? He considers himself an artist of the body. He takes imperfections and makes them perfect. Granted the women who go there look nothing like me. For him to make a more ‘perfect me’ he’d have to set aside a year of his life to molding this lump of clay.
My reasons for not doing so
I will have to admit that I have thought, pondered, dreamed or wished my way into more perfect hooters. Honestly, what would be the point? Me being the gregarious person that I am would want to show them to everyone I met. I’d end up with no women friends! The ones I have would get ticked off at me for wanting to flash them as I saw fit. Either they’d get mad at their husbands and demand new boobies for themselves, or they’d get jealous and I just don’t do jealous.
Besides there is pain. I don’t do pain. I really hate being cut up, at all. I won’t even go have my gall bladder out because of the little itty bitty cut they make to remove it. My Gynecologist taught me early in life that Doctors cause pain when he gave me my tubaligation. I couldn’t stand straight for 3 days, that was so totally not fun. The lump that was left where my tubes were, makes me think he left his watch inside me. When it’s really quiet I swear I can still hear it ticking. Either that or he and his pals played football inside my guts.
I’ve watched enough of those shows and how gentle they ARE NOT, to know that the healing process is going to take some time, and its really going to hurt. The push and pull and tug everything, you just know it’s going to hurt. I’d rather give birth to triplets naturally. Just give me a tree branch near the river and let me do the rest.
So you still want it?
If you managed to get past all of the above and still think you want a Breast Augmentation for whatever reason, you first really should do your research! You’ve probably heard the phrase “You get what you pay for”, now is not the time to go bargain hunting for boobies! It’s not like you can polish them up and make them good as new like you would a lamp from a garage sale.
Know off the bat it’s going to cost $5000 at the very least, for a good Boob Job. About 10 years ago I happened to see a girl who had gotten a very nice breast augmentation. They looked very natural and in order to tell they were implants you had to get up close and personal. I’m not that kind of gal so I took her word for it they weren’t what her momma gave her. Since her job required her to have nice hooters (strip club), the customers can spot a boob job at 10 paces, she needed a more natural look. She certainly did get her money’s worth.
Do your research!
Talk to others, let them give recommendations. There are really good Doctors out there who will do a good job. You just have to ferret out the good from the bad. Look at the Breast Augmentations on your friends, see how their turned out. Ask your Doctor for references.
You want them to look as natural as possible, you don’t want them to look like they filled a Zip-lock baggie and covered it with skin. There should be no crinkles, the skin should be smooth when the saline implant is filled.
Do not go outrageously huge. Attempt to pick something within your size range. The real purpose of getting a boob job is to make yourself feel comfortable. Who really wants to be yelled at across the mall “Hey, I see you got a boob job!!” If you would normally be a C cup (for your size and weight) then go to a C. When you were an obvious A and jump to a DD, that might be just a bit much.
You may not know that there is maintenance involved in breast augmentation. Every 5 years or so you will have to go back to the Doctor for a lift. Just because you got a boob job doesn’t mean you get perky boobs for life! You have to rotate the tires and check the oil every now and then with them (figuratively speaking of course).
Whatever the reason - do it for You!
Women get Breast Augmentation for various reasons, to make themselves feel better about themselves, to perk up sagging breasts, to make small breasts bigger, to make both breasts the same size and for medical reasons. Women who have had Mastectomies feel more comfortable with themselves after having Breast Augmentation. Some women get the boob jobs for their men, make sure it is what you want first and foremost. Don’t change yourself for anyone but you.
