18 Nov Breast Implants as Part of Your Mommy Makeover
Breast augmentation surgery, including breast implants, is a popular part of the “mommy makeover” for many patients. Breast implants are one of the most requested procedures at John Park MD Plastic Surgery in Newport Beach, with many new moms interested in rejuvenating and enhancing their chest post-partum. Childbirth and breastfeeding are beautiful, natural, and exciting events in many women’s lives, and it’s no surprise that your breasts change dramatically in the process. One mom, Leslie Bruce, got very real about why she opted for breast implants in her book You Are a F*cking Awesome Mom.
Restore Your Breasts
She remembers walking into the cosmetic surgeon’s office to be greeted with a “wall of breasts” of every material, shape, size, and texture. She’d told the nurse that she just wanted to fill out her bras like she used to pre-baby. However, the nurse was eager for her to “try out” a large sampling of breasts. Bruce was already sure she wanted breast implants, but admits she was on the fence until she saw how she’d look with flawless, perky breasts.
The consultation—and a preview of what the results would look like—left her feeling confident and excited about her upcoming surgery. Two weeks later, Bruce went in for surgery. She says, “People often wonder whether I was nervous about going under anesthesia with such a young child at home or scared about being cut open, but my answer is always no. I literally had an eight-pound human pulled out of my stomach; this was a piece of cake.”
It didn’t take long after surgery for Bruce to feel her confidence begin to soar. She considered herself small-chest before her pregnancy, and the idea of having breast implants had always been floating around in her mind. Bruce found herself looking better than ever, pre- or post-baby, and couldn’t wait to embrace her new aesthetic. She says sharing her story is a way to show a “mother’s journey to reclaim her sense of self,” which she calls complex and hard-fought.
