‘Bad Teacher’ Provides Good Lesson about Breast Augmentation

Buttock and Breast Augmentation (NYC), Park Plaza Plastic Surgery New York (NY)

In the hit summer comedy Bad Teacher, Cameron Diaz plays a character seeking breast augmentation for all the wrong reasons. Diaz’s character displays a number of symptoms that generally make women poor candidates for breast augmentation, including:

  • Low self-esteem
  • An unhealthy lifestyle
  • Unrealistic expectations

While the movie exaggerates these traits to comic effect, the truth is that breast augmentation—and your reasons for seeking breast implants—deserve serious consideration. Undergoing breast augmentation does not ensure improved body image and self-esteem, and choosing breast augmentation should be your decision alone. Women may choose breast augmentation for a number of reasons, including:

  • Asymmetrical breasts
  • Dissatisfaction with breast size
  • Loss of form due to aging or following pregnancy
  • Substantial weight loss

In addition to having a definable reason for seeking breast augmentation, ideal breast augmentation candidates also:

  • Are healthy adults whose breasts have fully developed and who have no major medical problems
  • Are informed about the procedure and how it will affect their bodies
  • Have clear aesthetic goals and realistic expectations
