Although the term boobie greed may sound silly, it describes a very real phenomenon. Just like with diamonds, women often develop a “bigger is better” mentality when thinking about their breast size. Boobie greed knows no bounds and has left women from AA to FF (and everywhere in between) perpetually dissatisfied with their breast size.
Carefully Consider Your Goals
If you’ve always been unhappy with your breasts and have decided to go the route of breast augmentation, you may be tempted to adopt a “go big or go home” approach to implant size. Unless your goal is a no-doubt-about-it-they’re-fake look, it’s best to carefully consider what implant size will create a result you’ll be comfortable with. Going too big can leave you self-conscious or frustrated with the fit of your clothes. On the other hand, if you’re completely set on the Baywatch-style look, by all means, go big.
Post-Surgery Boobie Greed
Getting breast implants in no way guarantees that boobie greed will end. Many women report the desire for additional surgery to further enhance their breasts even after they get implants that are realistically bigger than their face. (We’re talking to you, Heidi Montag.) The psychology behind this could be debated, but ultimately it’s an example of two universal truths: we always want what we don’t have, and nothing garners more attention than gigantic boobs.
Choose the Right Surgeon
In all seriousness, the importance of picking the best implant size for you cannot be understated to ensure you’ll be happy with your results. Choosing an experienced, board-certified surgeon is not only important for your safety, but also ensures that you have a credible expert helping you choose an implant size that will leave you satisfied and not longing for more.
