There are so many things to consider when deciding whether or not to get breast implants. For many people, one of the top questions on their minds is, how do I tell people about this?
Breast augmentation will make a visible change to your body – a change you very much want to make. But how do you explain your decision to those closest to you? How can you tell your husband or your father?
To Tell or Not To Tell
The bottom line is, it’s your decision. You don’t have to tell anyone and you don’t have to explain yourself. But not telling anyone about your breast augmentation means that it will be a secret. And after the surgery, your secret will be out. People will most likely notice that your breasts are larger.
How to Tell Your Family
For some women, the thought of telling their family about their decision to get breast implants is more than a little daunting. So how do you do it? Could you imagine telling your husband in a text message? While it would save you the uncomfortable face-to-face discussion that you fear, it would create even more problems.
When it comes to important life decisions, you need to address them as a couple. You want to have your husband’s love and support before moving forward with the procedure. Your decision will affect him as well, so it’s only right that he should be a part of the conversation.
Start the conversation by explaining why you want to get breast implants and how important this is to you. Also, make sure he understands that your lack of confidence or your insecurities have nothing to do with him. Tell him you’ve been thinking about it for a long time and that it’s not a spur-of-the-moment decision. He may not be on board right away. It may take some follow-up conversations. Just make sure to be patient and open in your discussion.
