Women often go through life with the fear that they aren't good enough. That fear can destroy their self-esteem and continually hamper their life. For many, this problem may spring from having small breasts. In some instances, breast augmentation may be able to help.
Underlying Fears May Exist Because Of Small Breast Size
Women with small breasts who have self-esteem issues may have started feeling bad about themselves due to having small breasts in high school. Some may have teased them for this unfairly and called them names. Unfortunately, their perception of this being a problem often makes it an issue that they have to manage for years into their adulthood.
This kind of poor self esteem can cause women to do less in life than they could have otherwise and may even sabotage relationships. As a result, it is important to take steps to assess and manage this problem, a process which often starts with psychological treatment. It can also be assessed by breast augmentation.
How Breast Augmentation Can Help
Breast augmentation is the process of enlarging your breasts with implants. These are typically either inserted underneath of your breast muscles or inserted directly into the fat of the breast. The implantation method will vary depending on the type you use.
Many women feel a strong psychological boost after getting these implanted in their body. They appreciate the extra size and believe that it makes them more attractive. These feelings are not shallow but are important self-esteem emotions that are positive and constructive for a woman who has been plagued by negativity and depression.
Assessing The Cost-to-Benefit Ratio
Breast augmentation surgery costs just under $4,000 on average and is usually not covered by insurance. As a result, any woman who wants this type of surgery is going to have to save up for it for an extended period. That said, it may help to off-set some of their psychological-care costs. For example, they may be able to limit their counselor meetings by feeling better about themselves.
Counseling sessions can cost anywhere from $50 to over $200 per session. If a woman cut two or even three of these sessions out of her monthly schedule, she could save anywhere from $150 to $600 a month. Over a year period, that is between $1,800 and $7,200. At that rate, a breast augmentation surgery could practically pay for itself.
Of course, getting this kind of surgery doesn't guarantee that a woman will need fewer counselor sessions or even that she will feel better about herself. However, it can do a lot for the right woman and isn't a bad choice if you feel like a smaller breast size has negatively impacted your life.
