Making the decision to have breast implant surgery is very exciting, but it is not all it’s cracked up to be. It is an extremely emotional journey, and one that you must be prepared for.
You may have all of your dreams pinned on the “perfect” results, but it doesn’t always end up that way.
The procedure is expensive, and post surgery you may feel pain and nausea, with nothing to do in your recovery time but survey and critique your new breasts.
There will be days of feeling happy and excited by the prospect of shopping and buying new bras, and then days of wondering why you did this to yourself and why your boobs aren’t perfect like the hundreds of girls you have seen on social media.
It is a good idea to talk to the ladies that you are comparing yourself to and admire. They will be quick to advise that the journey was most likely as bumpy and emotional as you are experiencing.
These feelings and waves of emotion are completely normal, and it is during this time that you need to stay in contact with your surgeon and their team. They are the most crucial part of your support network, and have seen the journey hundreds (if not thousands) of times and will be able to answer your questions and guide you through.
If you do suffer anxiety, nervousness or other psychological conditions, you need to disclose this to your surgeon and consult with your treating doctor to ensure you are psychologically prepared for recovery.
Understanding and accepting that this is an emotional rollercoaster, and keeping communication open with your surgeon and their team, is essential; as is a supportive team at home to get you through the low days.
