Breast Augmentation is Not for Everyone

A major issue for many women is the size and shape of their breasts because it contributes to their self-image of femininity and sexuality. This is often conditioned by media as well as the reactions of other people, but regardless it has a significant impact on how they perceive themselves.

As a result, an increasing number of women are opting for breast augmentation, also known as “boob jobs.” This is when implants are placed behind existing breast tissue via a small incision. According to the website of Bergman & Folkers Plastic Surgery, it is a relatively minor operation with significant psychological benefits, and because of improvements in technology there are few postoperative risks involved.

Breast augmentation is not a new concept; it has been around in the US for more than 40 years. The media has made much of reports of its adverse side effects that it has acquired an unsavory reputation, but in fact these are rare cases that in no way represent the majority of breast augmentation cases. Nevertheless, breast augmentation is not for everyone.

Most women believe that breast augmentation is the way to achieve perfection in their physical appearance, and they will be doomed to disappointment. Breast augmentation can certainly improve your appearance but there are many other factors to consider before you can achieve your ideal image, whatever that may be. Unrealistic expectations make you a poor candidate for breast augmentation.

Lifestyle may also be an impediment to successful breast augmentation, or any other cosmetic surgery for that matter. Ideal candidates for any procedure should be physically and mentally healthy before undergoing a procedure. Poor health can significantly affect the outcome as well as prolong post-surgical recovery. Some of these factors include:

  • Weight
  • Nutrition
  • Physical Activity
  • Smoking Habits
  • Alcohol Consumption
  • Sleep Habits
  • Exposure to Sun
  • Stress Levels
  • Coping Mechanisms

A competent plastic surgeon will discuss these with their patients during their initial consultations. Some will be advised against breast augmentation because they do not meet the requisite standards.

When you Just Need the Service

Hiring a limo service or private car can be expensive, but there are just times when you need to have private transport. And as pointed out on the website of Capital City Limousine, since you’re paying anyway you might as well get the best service possible. Here are some instances when private is the only way to go.

Errands, and More Errands

There may be times when you have a seemingly inexhaustible supply of errands that you have to get done within a certain time period. In some cities, there may be several options available that may make public transport viable. But not always. In Austin, for example there is no light rail transit, so you have to rely on buses for public transport. If you are on a tight schedule, you may run out of time running after buses. You could take a cab, but there’s no assurance you will get one when you need it. Having a private driver to take you everywhere you need to be is efficient and reduces stress on you.

Guests Galore

You would also need to hire a private car (preferably with a driver) to pick up business associates or out-of-town family from the airport or to show them around. Within Austin, it is possible (though not very impressive) to tour them via bus, but it will probably be a false savings, especially if you want to bring them out of the city.

Special Occasions

Limo services are practically required for weddings (especially if it is your own) but proms, reunions, and important business functions may also be considered good reasons to fork out the money. You are assured of a ride home, and you can impress the heck out of everyone.

Limo services and private cars are a convenience, not a luxury, although they can be both. Keep it in mind the next time you get into a fight with an old lady for the last available taxi because you’re going to be late for an important dinner meeting with your boss.
