The world is a strange place – we always want what other people have got! If you have straight hair the chances are you are envious of your friends with curled locks. And if your hair is curly, well then you’re probably jealous of all those people with poker straight hair. It’s much the same with breasts – bigger-boobed women often crave a smaller bust, while smaller-boobed women go the other way. If you are a woman with a large chest, then take solace in the fact that there are a lot of women who want what you’ve got! However, those with big chests will know that it’s not all it’s cracked up to be. Often women are driven to considering breast reduction surgery and in this article we’ll tell you a little more about it.
Why Don’t You Like Your Boobs?
If you are considering surgery then you’ll know that it is a very drastic measure. You have got to be absolutely sure, so start thinking about exactly why you hate your breasts. Many women have had a lifetime of teasing and ‘funny’ remarks about their chest and this has led them to develop a hang-up for life. If this is the case for you, do these childish remarks still burn you, or have you learnt to handle them? Or better still, have you learnt to avoid the idiots that make them?! Think long and hard about why you want your breasts reduced, and decide whether it is something you want, or something that society has made you believe you want.
Speak to an Expert
If you have made the brave decision to go for a breast reduction, then your next step is to go and see a trusted plastic surgeon for more details. They will tell you more about the procedure, along with the risks and the recovery time, and they will also ask you lots of questions. The more you have thought your decision through, the more certain you will look to your consultant. They will often suggest that you have some counseling in order to make sure that you are completely happy with your decision before you go any further. This is a great idea and you should follow up on it.
If and when you are ready to take the plunge (literally!) then you’ll need to start preparing for the operation. You’ll need to book a couple of weeks off work to give you time to recover. The operation itself doesn’t last long and you may well be out the same day, but you will need a friend to drive you home. You’ll also need some looking after during the first week or so as lifting and carrying may be tricky. You should expect some bruising for a while after the operation.
While you are recovering you can look forward to a life with no more hang-ups about your chest. You will be able to face the world with a new-found confidence, and you’ll suddenly be able to wear a whole new wardrobe!
