Breast implants have become very popular in the past two decades. The first breast implants were manufactured in the 1960s, and ever since, manufacturers have been working to make them better and safer. There are downsides and risks (that we have also discussed on this website), but there are certain good things about these devices.
The most important thing to consider is whether you are a good candidate. If you suffer from certain conditions, even the best quality implants will not be good for you. There are also risks related to anesthesia, so if you are not generally healthy, having elective surgeries and putting yourself at risk is not worth it. There are also other things to consider, such as lifestyle, motives and expectations. If you are a professional athlete, then breast implants might not be good for you.
If you are thinking about getting breast implants just because you want to impress someone or make your partner happy, you should stop right there and think twice. You should also have reasonable expectations. If you think breast implants will resolve all of your problems and make everything easier and better, well… that is not going to happen.
The size of the implants are also important. Huge implants are likely to make your life more difficult and it is just a matter of time when they become annoying. Over-sized implants also carry higher risks of developing capsular contracture, which can force you to have additional surgeries. Extremely large implants also look and feel unnatural. However, when we say ‘breast augmentation’, we don’t mean ‘exaggeration’. As we said, there are some good things about breast augmentation. Here they are.
