Breast Enlargement for Active Women
you are considering breast enlargement, one of the most difficult questions you have to decide is what breast implant size is best for you. One important factor is considering what types of activities you enjoy on a daily basis. Breast enlargement with implants can give you the bust you want, and need not interfere with your active lifestyle.
In deciding on breast implants, make sure they’re not too large for your activity level. What too large means depends on what kinds of activities you enjoy. In tennis, opponents often return balls to the backhand side of larger-chested women, so you should take that possible disadvantage into account. If you are a golfer, you need to be able to keep your long, smooth, uninterrupted swing, so wider implants with less projection might be a better choice. Skiers, on the other hand, can find that wide implants interfere with maneuvering and may want to try higher-profile implants. Finally, swimmers often report that breast implants can increase your drag in the water. Runners are generally not affected too much, but may find the extra weight of a large implant to be a burden, and should definitely wear an appropriate sports bra following surgery.
If your activities depend on your pectoral muscles, you may wish to consider placement over the muscle. This makes the more natural-looking silicone implants a better choice most of the time, especially for women with little natural breast tissue.
