Is Breast Augmentation Right for You?
Why do people get breast implants?
Deciding to get breast implants is a very personal decision. Some women have felt insecure about their chest since adolescence and undergo surgery to improve their self-esteem. Others may get implants as part of a makeover following childbirth or weight loss, or to counter the effects of aging. Still others are dissatisfied with the shape of their breasts. In some cases, implants are used to reconstruct the breasts after an injury, severe developmental delays, or cancer. Some women opt for a single implant to correct noticeable asymmetry of the breasts. And, eventhough it's not a good reason to do it, some women have breast enlargement done to please a partner, boyfriend, or spouse who is pressuring them. So the first sign that breast implants may not be right for you is if you are considering surgery for someone else's benefit.
Can I afford breast implants?
Unless you need reconstruction because of illness or injury, breast enlargement is considered an elective, cosmetic procedure, which commonly means that your insurance company is not going to pay for consultation appointments, the surgery itself, medications, hospitalization, or other related expenses. But even if you've saved the $4,000 to $10,000 that all services cost on average - or if you've found a loan or payment plan - there are still costs to expect after these initial ones. You may need to have your implants replaced in the future (some may leak or rupture in 5 years whereas others may last 20 years or more), which will mean more surgery, more bills, and more time off work. For silicone implants, you may need to have MRIs regularly to check for a "silent rupture," and, again, insurance companies commonly do not pay for this type of test when conducted for cosmetic reasons. If you can justify the expense and feel that the benefits outweigh the cost (and a number of women do), then you appears to be a candidate.
What will I look like with breast implants?
Not everyone will feel comfortable talking about such a personal subject with their friends or doctor. Allergan, one of the breast implant manufacturers, realized this and created a kit with educational information about the procedure and a few sample implants. The kit lets you "try before you buy" by including samples that can be tested at home with your clothing. But in addition to size, breast implants also come in different shapes, which means that there are lots of different options to choose from. So if you can afford it and if you are doing it for the right reasons, it appears to be worth taking the next step to learn more and asking your doctor about the risks and benefits of having the surgery.
