The Scoop on Boobs: Is Bigger REALLY Better?

Breast implants can help women boost their confidence, but do the benefits outweigh the risks?

Breast implants can help women boost their confidence, but do the benefits outweigh the risks? The Travelling Goddess shares some important details about the impact of implants in this informative piece.


Choices, choices!


We all want to feel beautiful. We all want that second glance, that little smirk around the mouth, and feeling good about yourself and your looks. It's human nature. We live in a world where women are often objectified and are exposed continuously to perfect female images that are the going ideal. Those bodies usually come with awesome boobs and Kardashian-style butts. Hence, many women wish to measure up and so, every year, at least 300,000 ladies in the USA alone undergo the breast implant procedure. Oh, the choices are endless... high-profile, moderate-profile, smooth or textured, saline, silicone or, the latest trend, gummy bears. It's like shopping in a candy store. They even sound yummy-sweet, too!

There are, of course, as many reasons for women to decide to implant as there are women. Those in the swinging lifestyle make it a point to look their best and be sexually attractive; just by looking around in the community, it's clear that many ladies choose to have implants done for a little more oomph in their step. When taking a glance at the beautiful flyer in the surgeon’s office, you might notice that it has a small section on risks, but ah, we quickly dismiss that, as it states complications are very rare and we trust our surgeons that implants are safe and totally FDA approved. So, we keep our eye on the prize — perky, spectacular knockers! After a short heal and a hit to your bank account, you do have a wonderful set, indeed, perky and ready for action! Life is good!


Fast forward


A few years later, you look in the mirror and notice your boobies are perhaps no longer as perky as they were at first. In your mind, you vaguely remember the comment that the surgeon made that they'll need a revision every 7 – 10 years. Oh yes, right — these babies weren't supposed to stay in forever! So, you spend another couple of thousands to have them re-done, preferably a bit bigger because your skin may have stretched a little with time and aging. This way you will look even better! Maybe swap 'em out from saline to gummy for an even sturdier look and feel, so in with those CCs! Happy times!


FDA approved


Those that opted for implants did you ever give a lot of thought to what we ladies put into our bodies, right on top of our lungs, close to our heart? The flyer didn't mention it; neither did the surgeon because they are not obligated to and so we are not bothered too much and sign away.

Take into consideration that all implants are made of a chemical soup of about forty different neurotoxins, carcinogens, and other solvents, including benzene, formaldehyde, and heavy metals like platinum and aluminum as well as silica, to name a few.

The FDA very recently put out a letter to health care providers that ALL breast implants are now associated with BIA-ALCL, or Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphomas. So much for safe, smooth saline ones then. Why? Because the shell is made from silicone. If you wish to see how the procedure for approval by the FDA works, it's recommended to watch the documentary, The Bleeding Edge. It's an eye-opener!


Connecting the dots


We ladies put two of these bags in our chest voluntarily and leave it there; some don't even bother with revisions. Lately, though, tens of thousands of women from all over the world have reported many health issues that sent them from specialist to specialist and going downhill from there. Now there is a term used among this group which is Breast Implant Illness (BII).

Since the implants engage with the immune system on an ongoing basis, these ladies have all kinds of auto-immune symptoms and metabolic diseases in common — young as well as old. Immune system failure allows organisms such as bacteria, fungi, viruses, and parasites to grow unchecked and out of control. Silicone chemicals are also known endocrine disruptors that interfere with the body’s sensitive endocrine glandular system. Fatigue, brain fog, migraines, hormonal imbalances, Hashimoto’s, lupus, arthritis, and multiple sclerosis are just a few of a long list of reported illnesses. The interesting thing is that the majority of those that explanted report that they no longer suffer from those ailments. For them, the proof is in the pudding; just do a quick search for #thehealisreal.


Do or don’t?


It's impossible to predict when a woman's immune system will become dysfunctional as a result of continuously "fighting off" the toxic components seeping into their body from breast implants. It's like smoking cigarettes — some get lung cancer, some don't. However, the growing consensus is that it's not a matter of IF you get sick, but rather WHEN. Some have issues instantly; for others it takes years, and some never experience a thing. Many women don't even realize their implants could cause their health problems in the first place.

BII is not a medically recognized condition, but it’s definitely getting more and more attention in the media lately. With this growing awareness of what’s in implants and what could be headed your way health-wise, it’s worth it to at least look beyond the lovely flyer and the honkers before you make just any decision that pleases you!

Of course, this is not to say you shouldn't get breast implants or take them out right away. Do whatever you think is best for you. Love yourself and love your body!


The Travelling Goddess

Years ago, I was stung by the Wanderlust (the first documented use of the word occurred in 1902 and no, it wasn't me) bug. Wanderlust has different meanings in Etymology, Sociology and Psychology. 1. ""seeking unity with nature"" 2. ""strong desire to travel"" 3. ""an intense urge"" to experience the unknown, confronting the unforeseen to touch upon the unfamiliar. Guilty as charged, since this sexy trinity describes me to the T with a resounding yes, yes and yes! Desire, Lust and Travel is an intoxicating combination indeed! I travel a lot within the most beautiful of Lifestyle circles. A world shrouded in mystery and seduction and for those in it, mostly a hidden part of their public lives. How delicious, it's like going through life with an aroused mind lingering on the times you can shed your power woman office outfit for a sexy mask and irresistible lingerie. Much like an inserted sex toy that is being controlled by your partner at will, yet no one's the wiser. It's all part of the immense attraction to lifestyle circles which are growing explosively, so when you read my bits, reader discretion is advised...or not!
