Breast implants are amazing for a lot of reasons. They can provide a woman’s body with proportion and shape. Breast implants give a woman that long-desired hourglass figure. They allow clothing to fit better. Having a breast augmentation can make a woman look younger, as well. It is important to remember that there are limits to the ‘perks’ of breast augmentation, however. Implants are not miraculous; and even the best plastic surgeon is not a magician.
Breast Implants Can’t Last Forever:
Modern breast implants are created to last for many years, often well over a decade. Even at that, women with breast implants should expect to have another procedure sometime in the future. Implants are like any other piece of equipment; they will eventually need to be replaced. While the risk for ruptures and leak is minimal, they can occur. Furthermore, many women desire a different look as they age; this may be smaller or larger.
Bigger Breasts Can’t Create More Cleavage:
A popular misconception is that larger breasts equal added cleavage. Some breasts naturally sit closer together on the body, helping to create more cleavage; while on someone else, they are spaced farther apart. In this case, larger breasts may not be able to create the desired cleavage. The physical location of the breasts on the chest cannot be changed without an elaborate (and unrealistic) procedure. Putting the implants closer together is not a valid option, because this will only throw off breast symmetry and nipple placement.
Breast Augmentation Can’t Change Your Life:
While breast implants can improve your confidence level, they cannot improve relationships, secure a date, or keep a marriage together. Implants are not a ‘quick fix’ for personal issues; the problems that existed before will be there after surgery, as well. That is why opting for implants to make someone else happy is a very bad idea. Satisfying results can only come if you have picked breast augmentation for yourself and no one else.
