On the fence about getting a boob job? Daring to go kind of large? It's a big decision, and while images of Baywatch-era Pamela Anderson might be bouncing through your head, you should also consider some of the following little adjustments (some good, some not so good) before you go under the knife. There are a handful of unexpected breast implant side effects, so if you've wondered what happens when you get breast implants, read on to see some tiny ways implants change your life.
With Bigger Breasts, Your Posture Could Suffer... Or Improve
Sitting up straight might have been second nature for you, but with the added body mass, you may find yourself slouching at your desk. To counter the dreaded humpback, work more back and shoulder-strengthening exercises into your workout routine.
On the other hand, if you've been trying to hide a barren chest your whole life by closing in on yourself, your newfound post-op confidence might make you stand a little straighter.
Breast Implants Could Make Simple Activities More Difficult
It might be negligible, but the added weight on your chest could make balance-heavy activities more challenging. Going from a B-cup to an F-cup may have an effect on your ability to perform some yoga poses, swing a golf club, hit some balls at the neighborhood softball game, or even just swing your arms while you're jogging.
You'll Have To Learn How To Dress For Your New Body
Yeah, bigger breasts might look great in a bikini, but the reality is they make putting together an outfit surprisingly difficult. Here's the thing: when your breasts are significantly larger than your waist, most tops and dresses are going pull tight around them and float around your midsection, which might make you look larger overall.
Hugging Starts To Feel Less Touchy-Feely, More Neutral-Sporty
When you press an un-augmented bosom to another in a gesture of affection, the feeling is closer than when you've got two silicone-filled sacs separating your respective hearts, lungs and ribs. Smashing friends into a big hug starts to feel more like an attempt to make yourself feel that former closeness, or a dare to see how flat you can squash your boobs before you really start to worry about implant rupture.
