Do I Regret Getting Breast Implants?
Updated: Jul 30, 2019
I had someone ask me the other day if
a) I regretted getting breast implants
b) If I had a hard time adjusting to a smaller chest size now.
So, I thought I would share my feelings on it.
First, I have no regrets in my life. Really! While I do see now that different decisions in my past MAYBE would have led to a different outcome in certain areas, I truly believe that everything I have experienced, including the decision to get breast implants, was part of the journey I needed to go on..and is what made me the woman I am today, all of those experiences shaped my strength and outlook on life.
In a previous post I stated that I made the best decision I could at the time, and I stand by that. What I can tell you is that having had them removed, I have found myself more confident then I was before I had them, and ironically, more confident when I had them. I think this is because as I have gotten older I gained a certain sense of self, one that isn't determined on the size of my chest, or what I look like. Don't get me wrong, I still care that I am in shape, have a healthy body, and I am fighting that aging thing with everything I've got! (naturally!), but trying to live up to the perception of what beauty is, what sexy is, what the ideal woman's body type is, nah, that is out with the garbage! (or recycling! ) If we, as women, went on what the fashion, fitness or movie industries said beautiful was, then heck, I'm brining back the 1920's, when flat was all the rage!
Which leads me to the second part of their question, no! I have not had a hard time emotionally at all, in fact, not a blip, speed bump or longing, at all! I feel like I now get to live like a different person, like trying on black hair when all you've ever been is blonde! It's actually quite fun! The only thing I am sad about is a closet full of dresses and gala gowns that I can no longer wear due to the top portion being massively big! It's crazy how much material a breast fills out! In time I will slowly replace those, but for now, thank goodness summer is here and I can go braless - tee hee!
Here's to the Itty Bitty Titty Club! Standing tall and proud in my 100% authentic, real body and loving it! Love your parts ladies, big, small, smooth or wrinkled, it's who you are and the more confident in that you can be, the more beautiful you are!
