I was young, but not too young. I was able to boost my esteem at a younger age & recognize my value, which led me to leave my ex who didn't treat me so well. I enjoyed having boobs throughout my early twenties, you're supposed to ENJOY your body. I used to think, why spend the money now if I have kids I'll have to get them done again anyways....I'm so happy I niched my own advice & splurged on augmentation when I did. You know why? What if I can't "afford" implants after kids, because I can't afford to take the necessary time to heal. Or what if my finances are structured to buy a home?
Your twenties are meant to be, carefree. Mine weren't carefree, trust me, but I didn't have children which alleviated responsibilities. I worked my tail off bartending/waitressing. I picked up extra shifts, I worked doubles, I even took out a small thousand dollar loan. I was not well off or even financially stable for that matter, but I did it. I'm happy I did, life isn't worth living if you can't splurge occasionally and appreciate the finer things. I worked for it!
Currently I'm pursuing my Bachelors, I have a stable "Grown Up" job and I'm working towards the American Dream, aren't we all...?
I hardly have the time for a nap, let alone full blown surgery for an elective procedure! See what I mean? LIFE HAPPENS. It's ok. Honestly, if I hadn't done the augmentation in my early twenties, I'm sure I would have to keep postponing.....until after graduation? After I find a job with a fat salary? Oh, by that time I'd probably be getting married/house hunting/having babies?? Who knows. All I knew for certain in my early twenties was that I was broke. Basically broke. I could afford nice things but I relied paycheck to paycheck. My only responsibility was showing up to work around 4pm, LOL!!!
If I had the opportunity to get them at 18, I would have jumped...at the time. Now that I'm mature, I recognize I probably wouldn't have made the best decision on size or surgeon for that matter. At that age, teens want instant gratification and results. At 22yrs old I was smart enough to put in the research to find a good Doctor. I was also at the right age to choose silicon or saline.
There is no wrong age to get breast implants. It depends on your own lifestyle, ambitions and future. You have to decide, when is the BEST time for YOU.
I can't speak about about breast implants affected by pregnancy/children because I'm not at that stage myself. But I can tell you, I've seen plenty of Kardashian pics, if Kourtney's boobs look this great after 3 kids I'm good! I truly believe the 10yr lifespan of implants can withstand the bodies changes through motherhood.
