Life Before And After Cosmetic Surgery
You may be surprised at how different you feel after having cosmetic surgery. Whatever the procedure, it can completely change your self-image, perhaps making you feel like a new person, like losing weight or having a hair cut might. Whatever your choice of cosmetic procedure, it will be emotional! But it might be interesting to read over a typical case study of a person who has experienced a breast reduction, to see how it affected their life.
Jane is 29 years old. Since she was a teenager, she had always had larger breasts than average, and it had never been easy. When she was in school, she would get teased, and often the boys would make her feel uncomfortable. She was afraid to change with the other girls, and dreaded the days when she had P.E., because she was never comfortable. The bras she could find to fit weren’t as pretty as she would have liked, and for this reason she always felt as though she wasn’t as feminine as some of her friends.
As she got older, she experienced back and neck pain and the weight of her breasts caused her discomfort. She began to get excited about trying new fashions like her friends, but often the clothes wouldn’t fall right on her, or she wouldn’t be able to find clothes to fit properly.
Jane had a consultation with her GP, and also a plastic surgeon, and after thinking very carefully, she decided to have a breast reduction. When she spoke to the surgeon, he informed her of the breast reduction procedure and the breast reduction recovery time. She made sure she felt fully ready and prepared before the operation.
After the operation, Jane felt relieved that all had gone to plan, but was still aware of the cosmetic surgery recovery process. She rested, and resumed normal life slowly and with caution. Eventually, she was back on her feet and living life happily and freely. She bought new bras that made her feel confident, and enjoyed the new options for clothes that opened up for her. Most importantly, she walked with her head held high, feeling comfortable, and no longer self-conscious. For Jane, this was when she felt the process had been worth it. She felt like herself, but a happier, more content version of herself. She knew that she could now live very comfortably, with one less worry.
