Psychological Side-Effects of Breast Implants

With famous celebrities (like Kourtney Kardashian, Victoria Beckham, Sharon Osbourne, Britney Spears, and many more) having their breast implants removed – anywhere from a few days to a few decades after they got them – one can’t help but ask the question “why get them in the first place?” And this goes deeper than the obvious. There are psychological side effects to consider.

You can’t argue that these women made rash and uneducated decisions but that is simply not the case. There is no doubt that they did their research, had a pretty good idea of everything involved (ridiculous costs, pain, scaring, etc), and were determined to get them anyways.

Just for the record: I honestly don’t think any sane person would let themselves get operated on just to test what implants feel like. No, I think it is fair to say that you only commit to getting them if you are serious about having/keeping them.

Having said that, statistics show us that approximately 43% of all women who got implant surgeries, regret getting them. A lot of them spend fortunes to get them removed again.

Shocking, isn’t it?

Psychology VS Cosmetic Surgery

Breast Implant and Psychology

The argument is that “it is not so much the fact that these women get depressed as a result of having the implants, but much more the fact that they were unhappy with their self image to begin with”.

Interesting though that a lot of women prefer to go back to their saggy breasts instead of keeping the firm implanted ones. Of course there is the extra weight issue which makes implants hard on your back, and of course the million other things that can go wrong: loss of stimulating feelings, scars, discomfort while sleeping, etc, but I suspect there is more to the story.

My conclusion from studying dozens upon dozens of similar examples is, it is nearly impossible for our minds to comprehend and appreciate things on our body that change drastically overnight.

Let me demonstrate: my husband recently shaved off his beard which he had been faithfully trimming for 8 months. After all the shaving cream was washed off, he nearly started crying because he did not recognize himself. In fact, he was practically depressed for a few days – especially when he looked at himself in the mirror.

With time, he adjusted to it and all is good. But it was a psychological battle, for sure.

Just imagine how much more this happens when something on our body drastically changes during a nap. Your conscious and unconscious mind watched everything develop over a period of many years, and as soon as the implants are in, your mind practically rejects the body because it does not recognize it.

It sounds silly, but that – in layman’s terms – is exactly what happens.

Better Breast Enhancement Options

How should you go about improving your breasts then? How can you make them perkier, larger, more even, etc if surgery is such risky business?

Alternative Breast Enhancement Options

Whatever you do, do NOT get an implant surgery. It really is not worth the pain, frustration, and cost.

If you are determined to still get them, I highly recommend starting out by reprogramming your subconscious mind. My preferred way of doing this is through hypnosis. Hypnosis can be a great way to deal with the psychological impact before and after the procedure. I’ve written more extensively about it here!

Aside from that, I’d recommend giving breast massages along with breast enhancement serums and breast pills a whirl. All of those options are 100% natural breast enhancement procedures that I use, love, and feel comfortable recommending.

Do things right. Save yourself the trouble, pain, and frustration, and do it in a “absolutely no regrets” way. You have only one set of breasts and can not afford the risk of getting them screwed up! Not just for your body, but also for your psychological health!
