Although the topic of breast augmentation surgery is taboo in certain company, it is still the number one most frequently performed cosmetic surgery in the United States. This tells us that women are often more comfortable actually undergoing breast augmentation surgery than they are talking about it.
The reason that women feel uncomfortable talking about breast augmentation surgery is that they fear being labeled as “insecure” or “superficial” — however, real world data suggests anything but. Data shows that women in their childbearing ages are more likely to undergo breast augmentation surgery than any other age group.
This is likely because after childbirth, many women experience breast ptosis, which is the medical term for breast sagging. There is no exercise or diet that can reverse breast ptosis; breast augmentation surgery is the only “cure.” Even postpartum women who have kept their weight under control usually notice changes in their breasts in the weeks and months following the delivery of their babies. Hormones produced during pregnancy cause a woman’s breasts to enlarge, sometimes causing stretch marks, and often causing a loss of elasticity in the skin. These changes are to be expected during and after pregnancy, but that doesn’t mean women should have to live with these changes forever. Breast augmentation surgery is a safe and viable solution.
Becoming a mother is a transformative experience, both physically and emotionally. With so many major adjustments during this time in your life, it is completely normal to want your pre-baby body back. And why shouldn’t you? Your breasts are symbols of your sensuality and vivaciousness. They speak to your liveliness and youthful vigor. There is nothing superficial or shallow about changing your appearance to regain self esteem and confidence. These are crucial aspects of your identity. Motherhood demands a deep sense of devotion, and breast augmentation is one way to regain your sense of self.
If you’re considering breast augmentation surgery, you should speak with a skilled cosmetic surgeon to learn how to get the look you want. Being knowledgeable about the procedure and your surgeon will go a long way toward getting the best possible results.
