After having my last baby, I have never felt comfortable wearing a swimsuit in public. Every time that I would take my children to the pool or the beach; I would never take off my cover-up. Why? I never liked the way that my sagging breasts looked in swimwear.
I had purchased many different swimwear styles. Had professional swimsuit fittings at expensive swimwear stores, and still never had the confidence I needed to feel good in my skin.
Since I love spending almost every summer day with my children at the beach, I finally got tired of always sitting under an umbrella watching my children have all the fun just because I lacked self-confidence in wearing a swimsuit in public. At the end of last year, I made an appointment with Dr. Niccole at CosmetiCare to get a consultation on having a breast lift (mastopexy).
It has been about three months since my surgery, and when I went on a recent weekend getaway to La Paz, I finally took off my cover-up and enjoyed spending time at the beach with my family. I might be a little too old to be wearing a “sexy swimsuit,” but I didn’t care. My thighs might be a little bit too big, or my belly might be bulging in the swimsuit, but I didn’t care. I was so happy to wear a swimsuit with complete self-confidence because of my new breasts. I loved being able to show my daughter that while I don’t have the perfect body, I shouldn’t be ashamed or embarrassed of my body. If there is something that is forcing me to feel insecure about my body, like with my breasts, it is ok to have them fixed.
CosmetiCare gave me the self-confidence that I needed to feel good in my skin again. To love myself, and to be a good role model for my teenage daughter so that she will love her body too. If you have had a baby and feeling insecure about the way your breasts have changed, make an appointment at CosmetiCare for a consultation for an augmentation or mastopexy.
