Managing Emotions After Breast Surgery

Women in Florida who have breast augmentation experience a range of emotions before and after their procedure. In order to deal with these feelings in a healthy way, it’s best to be prepared. Here’s what you can expect:

Before Surgery

Most women experience feelings of nervousness, excitement or eagerness before the procedure. Every woman is different, and therefore everyone will have different feelings leading up to surgery, but it’s normal to feel anxious about surgery and the results. Women who have chosen a qualified surgeon whom they trust are generally much less anxious because they know they are in good hands.


During recovery, many women go through a period of doubt. They may question their decision to have had breast implants in Florida. Rest assured that this phase is completely normal. Feelings of doubt are sometimes a result of the anesthesia, or they may be a response to the physical side-effects of recovery. Try to keep this in mind for the first few weeks if you are experiencing mood swings. Within 2 or 3 weeks, you should feel much better physically. At that point, your emotions should stabilize and you will most likely feel more like your normal self.

After Surgery

Breast augmentation is the most popular procedure in the country, and most women find the results very rewarding. At my practice, women are constantly saying, “I wish I had done this sooner.” They feel more comfortable in their bodies and now have a wider range of clothing styles and swimsuit options. They love their new look, and as a result, their confidence often increases.
