Her latest post breaks down the most frequently asked questions about her experience.
If you’ve been following along over on Instagram Stories, you know that back in May, I opted to get a breast augmentation with the folks at Bruno | Brown Plastic Surgery. And so far, I am 100% happy with this decision! My body changed pretty drastically after gaining 20 pounds over the last year, and this is something I’ve been contemplating for a while now.
A full disclaimer before I dive into this post: if you’re considering plastic surgery, you should do it for you and only you. There’s no need to try to conform to society’s unrealistic standards of beauty! However, if you believe that undergoing a cosmetic procedure will improve your self-esteem and self-confidence, then by all means: go for it.
TODAY, I’M GOING TO BREAK DOWN SOME OF THE MOST FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT MY BREAST AUGMENTATION EXPERIENCE WITH BRUNO | BROWN PLASTIC SURGERY. AND ALSO, SHARE A BEFORE AND AFTER, SO MAKE SURE TO KEEP READING!
WHY’D YOU DO YOUR BREAST AUGMENTATION?
After I gained weight this past year, my body has been a little out of whack. I’m not going to lie: the weight gain initially took a toll on my self-esteem. But over time, I started to embrace my new shape. I went up a couple of sizes, and I had to rebuild my wardrobe. This spring, I had a breakthrough, and finally just took all of my size two pieces to my local consignment shop, and started to love my new curves.
However, one unexpected result of my weight gain? My breasts were two different sizes. As much as I preached body positivity, this is one thing that drove me crazy, day after day. And to be completely candid, I am carrying most of my weight in my stomach and thighs, and I didn’t love the way I looked in clothes. I wanted to even out the size of my breasts, and I also opted to go a bit larger.
