A surgical procedure in which a cosmetic surgeon enhances the volume and/or shape of breasts, breast augmentation is something that many women around the world consider opting for to help them gain the breasts that they have always wanted.
Suppose you are considering breast augmentation for yourself but aren’t yet feeling 100% sure about the decision. In that case, it’s important to weigh up the benefits of the procedure and think carefully about whether you feel ready to take such a step.
To help you arrive at a decision, we’ve put together some of the benefits that you can experience as a result of breast augmentation surgery, so get stuck in and find out more about how this procedure could benefit you!
For many years, there has been an overriding narrative regarding the female form and the ideal type of body. In amongst this is the perception that bigger breasts are more feminine and the preference of sexual partners and the constant message that they must be equally sized and pert. This isn’t the case for many women: they’ve either always had smaller breasts, noticeably different sized breasts, or have experienced sagging and volume loss due to pregnancy and breast-feeding. Over time, exposure to pornography and media containing well-endowed women can destroy a person’s confidence, leading them to consider breast augmentation surgery.
Another reason behind surgery for breasts could be that the person wants to undergo gender reassignment, and opting for augmentation is one way of finally achieving the body they have always felt they should be in.
It should come as no surprise that one of the key benefits of breast augmentation surgery is the increase in confidence it can cause. As mentioned, the relentless depiction of women with large, pert breasts that fit the definition of ‘perfect’ can shatter someone’s confidence regarding their breast size or shape, and cause them to feel self-conscious, have low self-esteem, and feel the need to cover themselves up in high-necked tops or loose, baggy clothing to disguise their breasts.
Following breast surgery, many reports feeling a sharp uptick in confidence levels immediately, more secure in sexy lingerie, bikinis, and tight or low-cut tops. This is even more pronounced in those who have had surgery as part of their gender transition, as they are finally able to feel at home in their own body – or, at least, partway there.
Alongside this increase in confidence comes a rise in sexual satisfaction and intimacy: the more secure a person feels in their body, and the sexier they feel, the more this is then translated into the bedroom! This is particularly true for those who have given birth and breastfed their children, witnessing a loss in volume and decrease in size following this life-changing arrival. It can make such women feel ashamed or lose their confidence, which might then mean they struggle to feel sexy or aroused, choosing to cover up or avoid sex altogether.
Better Fitting Clothes
Suppose you are one of those whose top half is a couple of sizes smaller than the bottom half (a classic pear shape). In that case, you’ll know how difficult it can be to purchase clothes such as fitted dresses and jumpsuits, as ones that fit your chest and shoulders are too tight on your bottom half, and ones that fit your bottom half are often too baggy up top. Opting to undergo breast augmentation surgery can help you finally achieve the type of body shape you desire and can enable you to find clothes that fit you properly!
Whatever your reason for considering breast augmentation surgery, it’s important to remember that is your decision, and not anybody else’s – so make sure you look up all the information you need to make an informed decision.
