Why Would Anyone Ever Want To Have Breast Implants?
I keep seeing adverse publicity about breast implants in the media.
Whether it be breast implant illness, ALCL or a celebrity with out of proportion breast implants or with visible rippling or strange looking breasts.
The media seems to love to focus on the negative aspects of cosmetic surgery and breast implants in particular.
Someone who would not consider having breast implants might be forgiven for wondering why anyone would go through with such a procedure.
What the media failed to focus on is the positive effects that breast implants can be bring.
Any responsible surgeon will tell every patient the risks as well as the benefits of having surgery.
Breast Implants, Like Any Surgery, Carry A Risk
In the same way that there are potential downsides of having a hip replacement or open-heart surgery, there are also benefits and it is ultimately up to the patient to weigh the risks against the benefits and decide whether surgery is right for them.
However the reality is that the vast majority of operations produce far greater benefit than harm.
There is no doubt that there are people who have been unhappy with having implants but what I would like to see is balance in the media proportionate to the outcomes that can be achieved.
The mother who has had children or a young woman who has always felt out of proportion can gain immense emotional as well as physical benefits from restoring volume and shape to their breasts.
Base Your Decisions On Facts
You need to make an informed decision if you’re considering having breast implants but make sure you base that decision on evidence and facts rather than articles or personal opinions.
