There was once a time (I won’t say “long, long ago” though) when cosmetic surgery was reserved for the wealthy and for celebrities (like actresses and models) whose careers depended on their appearance.
That is no longer the case. No, really…it isn’t.
Cosmetic surgery — especially breast implants — is for everyone these days. I mean, if it’s something you want and something you feel strongly about, after giving it due consideration and serious thought, as well as research (don’t forget the research!), why the heck wouldn’t you?
I bet you’ll be surprised at the breast implants prices. As I said, it is no longer for the rich and famous.
There are a few things you should know about breast implants. For starters, the average recovery time is seven days. Seven days. You need to be 18 years old to get saline implants and 22 to get silicone implants.
And, before you say, “Wait a minute. I thought silicone implants were banned!” (or something to that effect), they are not. The FDA banned silicone breast implants in 1992, but then reversed the ban in 2006 because of numerous studies that indicated no associated health risks.
However, if you choose to get saline breast implants, that’s fine and dandy, too. Saline implants are inserted in a deflated state then filled with saline once in place. (Silicone breast implants are pre-filled before being placed in the chest during the procedure.)
Lastly, to answer this question: What about breastfeeding when I have children? Studies indicate that women with breast implants have no more problems breastfeeding than women who do not have breast implants.
I personally know at least three people — not famous people, mind you — who have gotten breast implants. They have no complaints, no regrets; in fact, they couldn’t be happier with their decision. Don’t misunderstand — this isn’t about some overwhelming body-changing procedure. It’s about self-confidence and, well, yes…satisfaction with your body, your figure, your overall appearance. What in the world is wrong with that?
