Breast augmentation surgery blues are common, not for everyone, but for most of them. You will have anxiety leading you to second guessing in weeks and days leading up to the booked date. You will have thoughts coming to you on and off, questioning: “if you’re doing the right thing?” “What if something goes wrong”?
Just get this straight first that surgery, of any type, is a surgical procedure and is an emotional event. Breast augmentation is the same. You should not be surprise if your feel depressed and sad after the surgery. The second guess decisions for now and afterwards, the negatives-is normal and will happen.
You must have heard someone talk excitedly about her upcoming breast implantation. And just after the surgery, you found her unhappy with the results-most probable the breast size is not large enough or even close to her expectation. She is regretting the decision. This entire process of backpedalling is called Breast Augmentation Blues.
Let us assure you that these feeling along with many other will be completely normal. Let us briefly tell you why you will feel all this:
You are running on adrenaline and preparing yourself for the surgery. If anything at this time goes against your choice or unplanned, you start taking it personally. This is because of the excitement and fear mixed together.
- You will have more pain than you expected and a lot of bruising and swelling.
- The implants will seem too high on the chest, creeping out the entire picture.
- The medication will cause constipation etc.
- Your breast will seem smaller than expected.
You might even walk to mirror at times and think, “Was it even right to have breast augmentation?”. Emotional changes will occur as long as your breasts after surgery will not take the proper shape and position. Before and after the surgery, try keeping things in perspective. The depression and feeling blue will all subside as healing progresses.
If you continue to feel down, before and especially after breast augmentation-first most it’s important to contact your surgeon. Getting the surgery done from a reputable place is very important, because your surgeon will be the biggest support for you in times of making decision and to fight your depression.
