Now You Can Try On Boob Jobs With Virtual Reality

Virtual reality isn’t just for gaming – now, plastic surgeons are beginning to use 3D plastic surgery simulators so you can “try on” a breast augmentation!

The software can help you see what a round implants would look like as opposed to a tear drop one, what the implant would look like under the muscle versus above, and what different sizes would look like on your frame.

5 Facts About Boob Jobs Debunked

(Partner Post, by Claire McPhillimy)

Whether we’re wearing the wrong size bra or showing too much cleavage, when it comes to boobs we’re regularly getting it all wrong – or so we’re told.

But misunderstandings and mistakes aren’t our fault, not when you consider that from the moment puberty hits the only information we get about our breasts is usually gleaned from playground whispers. After all, the relationship we have with our barely developed boobs is kicked off listening to classroom debates about who is or isn’t stuffing their bra and fearful gossip about the dangers of wearing one to bed! Often, we end up carrying these childhood insecurities and mistaken ideas all the way to adulthood.

The Mystery of Boob Jobs

Nowhere is this clearer than the world of boob jobs.

Although 9,652 breast augmentations were performed in the UK last year, for many women going under the knife to boost their bust remains a dream.

One of the biggest reasons is that, like those playground rumors, we’re inundated with false stories and misinformation about what the process entails.

When you’ve been toying with the idea of getting a boob job for a while, separating fact from fiction with the information available is tricky.

And it’s left many of us with unfounded anxieties.

Separating fact from fiction

Don’t get us wrong, you’re right (and sensible!) to ask questions before a surgery.

But lots of your concerns are probably based on “facts” which may be fabrications or fear-mongering exaggerations.

To help you make an informed decision, we’ve debunked five of most common myths about boob jobs.

#1: You Can’t Breastfeed Afterward

Women often believe that breastfeeding won’t be possible after a boob job, and delay having one until they’ve finished having kids.

While some surgeries are riskier, like reductions, most women who have implants go on to successfully breastfeed. A respectable surgeon will be willing to talk through all possibilities with you, so don’t be shy about raising any concerns.

#2: The Gym Will Be Off-Limits

Although gym bunnies and sports enthusiasts often worry that implants will ruin their fitness regime, it’s only the recovery process which is majorly effected. You’ll be advised not to exercise at all for the first couple of weeks, and keep it low impact for at least the next couple of weeks.

Yes, it’s a pretty significant break if you’re used to hitting the treadmill five days a week, but after you’re healed up you’ll be able to resume your normal workouts.

#3: Say Goodbye to Underwired Bras

The joy of filling out a new cup size and exploring different lingerie is a big motivation for getting a boob job until someone drops the bombshell that you won’t be able to wear underwired bras afterward.

But it’s only immediately following surgery that you’ll be advised to stick to a non-wired, comfortable bra. Once you’re given the all clear from your surgeon, you’ll be able to wear whatever types of bra you choose.

#4: Everyone Will Know

Post-surgery, some people love their new boobs so much they want to show the results to the world. For others, a natural boost they can keep entirely to themselves is the goal.

The good news is that a subtle look is achievable. A good surgeon will advise you on the correct size, the appropriate placing (above or below the muscles) and the best shape of implant to give you your ideal look.

#5: Visible Scarring Will Be Left Behind

As with all medicine, cosmetic surgery has come a long way. New methods of performing breast enlargements are increasingly effective and scarring isn’t as big an issue as you imagine.

An expert surgeon will assess your individual case first but should be able to hide scars around the areola or in the small crease under your breast. Although you’ll know it’s there, strangers on the street will be none the wiser 🙂

Breast Augmentation Tops Year’s Procedures

The numbers are in for most popular cosmetic surgery procedures in 2012, and breast augmentation has topped the charts!

The Wall Street Journal covered the news in a recent story, Once Banned, Silicone Breast Implants Make A Comeback.

The WSJ is of course talking about the USA market, which banned silicone implants for years amid safety concerns that mostly had to do with leaking implants and patient health.

But the rest of the world has been continuing to buy silicone implants, with saline rarely an option anywhere else.

People often ask me if I think silicone breast implants are safe. The answer is truly different for every woman, and depends on her comfort level with the idea of silicone.

I personally chose saline implants when I made the decision years ago because peace of mind was important to me. I also liked the saline had a lower incidence rate of capsular contracture, the most common potential complication of breast augmentation that results in hardened breasts.

Yet silicone continues to evolve, and today’s offerings are better than ever before. The safety, feel, and potential lifetime of the implants have all vastly improved – and the next time I have to make the choice, I may consider silicone!

If you’re still trying to decide between silicone and saline, be sure to read Chapter 4 of my eBook, The Boob Job Bible: How To Get A Safe, Sexy Breast Augmentation. I make the choice simple, and dependent on the things that are most important to YOU.

Breast Augmentation: A Reader Speaks Out

Today, I’m excited to feature a guest post by Constance, a reader who has overcome her fears and reservations about surgery, and gone on to have a breast augmentation that she loves. Here’s her story.

My Boob Job: Making The Decision
I had been toying with the idea of getting a breast augmentation for at least 20 years before I finally decided to go for it!
But I didn’t always think I would get a boob job. When I was a teenager, I decided firmly against getting any enhancements – even though I was always self-conscious about my smaller B cup. Then I went to college in California, land of the beautiful bodies.
I continued to think about getting larger breasts. This went on for years, and through two marriages. I always felt less than adequate inside.
But then, I had a huge A-HA moment. I was having lunch with my best friend and an acquaintance of hers. At one point, this woman said to me, “I used to be as flat as you before I got my boob job.”
Well, I decided right then and there that no one was going to call me flat again!
(Why are women so sensitive and take it so much more personally when other women critique their appearance, than when other men do? But that’s a whole other topic…)
Anyway, I finally made the decision to just do it!
I was approaching 40, and had just been through a rough divorce, and wanted to start my new life with a new body. Not only did I want the breast augmentation, I was also interested in getting a tummy tuck. I had had two Caesarian sections for the birth of my daughters, and no amount of sit-ups would tighten my tummy pouch.
Now came the difficult decision of choosing the right doctor. I went with Dr. Christine Stiles and her specialty Mommy Makeover, so I could get a breast augmentation and tummy tuck at the same time. Dr. Stiles is a female plastic surgeon in Frisco, Texas, where I reside. It was really important for me personally to select a woman surgeon, because it made me feel more comfortable and at ease.
I’m thrilled with my results, and only wish I had done it sooner!

 

Lady Gaga Wants Breast Augmentation

Photo: mirror.co.uk

Lady Gaga is lusting for a new accessory, and this time, we’re not talking a fire cracker bra or or meat dress.

The pop star was overheard telling a waitress in New York that she was having a serious case of boob job envy while enjoying dinner with her beau, Luc Carl, reports the Daily Star UK.

“I love your boobs! Are they real? I really want to get implants too, I love fake boobs,” Gaga allegedly told the waitress. But the platinum blonde had some reservations. “I’m not sure how Luc would feel about me getting my boobs made bigger,” added the star.

This actually brings up a great point that readers looking to get a boob job often complain to me about: boyfriends and husbands who aren’t down with the idea, and aren’t supportive. It can be really upsetting when your man doesn’t stand behind a major (and exciting) decision like getting a breast augmentation.

It’s confusing, isn’t it? Here you are, wanting to look your best — and chances are, you probably take good care of yourself — eat well, workout, dress well — as many breast augmentation patients tend to do, because they’re concerned with looking their best. Shouldn’t a man be proud to have a woman who takes care of herself as a partner?

The thing is, breast implants cause any insecurities that a man has to boil to the surface — because many fear that a pair of new boobs is going to be followed by an upgrade in a new man too. You can allay these type of fears with a sit-down chat about how the only that will be changing will be your boobs — not your relationship. Just talking about it could be all the comfort he needs to get on board with the idea.

Other times, a guy can just be worried about your safety. There are boob job horror stories all over the internet, newspapers and television — and many people mistakenly believe it’s a dangerous surgery with risky complications and unattractive results. Nothing could be further from the truth of course if you do all your research and make the right choices, but people don’t know that. If this is the case with your man, let him know that you’ve done all the research, and show him pictures of the kind of results you’re going for. People don’t always realize that boob jobs come in more than just one size and shape — and when he sees that you’ve hired a great surgeon and have a specific final look in mind, he’ll probably relax and maybe even become your cheerleader.

And more rarely, the issue could be that your man is just a boob about boob jobs — and an underlying cause like jealousy or controlling behavior that is reflected in other areas of the relationship too comes to a head. In this case, you’ll want to consider cleaning up or moving past the relationship before you get involved with a breast augmentation — so that you’re in a healthy, positive and happy state of mind before you make such a major decision.

Breast Augmentation Fat Transfer

The thought of swapping out extra fat from your tummy or thighs to your breasts sounds pretty amazing, doesn’t it?

The technique is called breast augmentation fat transfer.

And while it sounds like something out of a sci-fi movie, it’s a technique that more and more plastic surgeons are experimenting with today!

One important thing: This technique is in the experimental phase, so I don’t advise that you try to find a plastic surgeon who will perform this on you right now.

But it’s a super interesting technique that you may be able to safely consider a little further down the road, once they’ve completed more tests to make sure everything is kosher. READ MORE.

Breast Implants Without Anesthesia

The New York Times reported a disturbing trend today: the increase in doctors offering breast augmentation without general anesthesia.

You can read the full story here.

I just read the piece, and I literally dropped everything to put together this potentially life-saving message for you. This is one of the most dangerous games I’ve seen cash-hungry doctors getting away with in this country yet.

The piece features Dr. Robert L. True of Colleyville, Texas as one of more than 100 doctors in the USA who perform breast augmentation under local sedation.

Dr. True is really a gynecologist though. No surprise there. Many non-plastic surgeons are picking up more lucrative work “on the side” since you get paid up front and in full when performing cosmetic surgery, and you don’t have to deal with insurance companies.

Doctors who perform cosmetic surgery on the side often learn how to do the surgery in weekend seminars. Meanwhile, plastic surgeons study breast augmentation for years before they’re allowed to touch a patient all on their own. I can’t tell you how drastic the difference in knowledge and care is between the two camps. It’s literally the difference between taking a weekend course or getting a PHD in a subject.

And I can’t over-emphasize enough how dangerous it is to hire someone who is not a board-certified plastic surgeon to cut into your body with a scalpel.

It’s not worth any amount of savings.

You’ve got one face and one body, not to mention one life – and hiring someone who isn’t qualified to touch you risks all of that.

But I haven’t even shared what Dr. True likes to do with his patients during their breast augmentations.

Dr. True says he actually talks to his patients while they are laying on the table getting sliced up, and even sits them up on the table in a groggy haze so they can take a look at their breasts half way through and choose their size!

Do you have any idea how ‘out of it’ you are when you’ve got all of those narcotics and drugs pumping through your system? And now you’re going to make a decision that will have permanent consequences for your body?

The story doesn’t even touch upon the potential complications a doctor carelessly exposes you to by moving you up and around while operating on your breasts.

I can’t believe a doctor can legally get away with doing this in this country.

There is a tragedy just waiting to happen here. And I don’t want you to be the one who falls susceptible to it.

Heading into your breast augmentation surgery, all implant decisions should already be made. There is no reason to have to pick your size while you’re undergoing the actual surgery.

The only thing your board-certified plastic surgeon should be doing during surgery is concentrating on your safety and the skill of placing the implant properly so that he produces the beautiful results you both agreed on BEFORE the surgery!

I of course go into detail on all the decisions you should make prior to the surgery in The Boob Job Bible.

Take the time to educate yourself and do all your research so that you won’t fall prey to dangerous situations like this one, and so that you can have a safe, gentle experience that produces the gorgeous results that you want.

Please pass this message on to anyone you know considering a breast augmentation so that they’re warned. Let’s all keep one another safe.

Just When I Thought I’d Seen Everything..

You can’t make stuff like this up.
Canadian tattoo fan Lane Jensen decided that the FFF cup scantily clad cowgirl stripper tat on his calf just wasn’t outrageous enough – so he decided to give her a boob job, as reported by The Denver Westword. As in a REAL silicone boob job!
Yes, this man is now walking around with a boob job on his leg.
This of course begs the question – just WHO did Jensen find to actually implant silicone in his leg?
And unfortunately for the raunchy yet hot-bodied cowgirl, her boobs look like one big lump of lard stuck together.
And I’m thinking the Canadian boy might have to move to a hot Hollywood type climate, where he can wear shorts year-round to show off his “art.” I can’t imagine the big bump looks all that compelling with a pair of pants over it.

The Boob Job Bible

theboobjobbible_banneranimate2

Hasn’t every woman at some point wondered what it would be like to have a boob job?

An augmentation. A lift. Or maybe a (gasp!) reduction.

Boobs are so much a part of being a woman that it’s hard to NOT think about them, isn’t it?

Well, after years of THINKING about it – I finally took the plunge.

I got a boob job!

Best gift I’ve given myself. EVER! It’s like a TRANSFORMATION.

For the curious, these are the three most surprising facts I learned during my years of research:
-Breast implants aren’t lifetime devices. Manufacturers say those babies only last about 10-15 years. Have some women out there kept them longer? Definitely. But it’s a surgery you have to be prepared to repeat down the road if you get one. Maybe even multiple times.

-There’s two kinds of implants: saline (water) and silicone. But even the saline implant has a silicone rubber shell. So either way, you’re putting silicone inside of you.

-Your new boobs can take anywhere from 6 weeks to about six months to settle down! They start out “high” up on your chest because your muscles tighten in response to the surgery. Once the boobs “drop,” they look more naturally shaped. The dropping process sometimes even makes you gain more cup size since your muscles settle their grip on your implants. So if you want your new girls to look fab for a particular event or day, plan FAR ahead in advance!

For the ladies out there who are more curious (you did find your way to this blog didn’t you?) and maybe even think they may take the plunge one day, here’s everything you need to know.
