Specialists explain this phenomenon, since Brazil is the second place in placement of silicone
Brazil continues to occupy a prominent position in the performance of plastic surgeries. The country is second in the world ranking. It is second only to the United States. According to the International Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ISAPS).
According to the survey, implantation of silicone prostheses is the second most performed procedure, after liposuction, which ranks first.
But despite being popular, a new trend has emerged among women who already have prostheses, the reduction of them. Socialite Kim Kardashian, Anitta, Gkay, Bárbara Rossi and Pamela Anderson are some of the celebrities who changed sizes for smaller proportions.
According to neuropsychologist Rachel Campos,
these aesthetic standards are always related to the concept of beauty in the construction of self-esteem, which can lead to body dysmorphic disorder.
“Women’s mental health suffers from the eternal search for the perfect body, the psychologist’s role is to observe if there is an excessive and unbridled concern for an object of desire imposed and idealized by the fad of the moment.
Let us be careful not to become slaves of beauty, losing the pleasure of living and satisfaction with ourselves. Let’s accept ourselves and value our body, which makes us unique and with our particular essence.
The body is a part of us, but we are also choices, values and attitudes”, guides the expert.
Plastic surgeon Ricardo Cavalcanti, who is also head of the plastic surgery division at UNIRIO, believes that the decision to remove the silicone because of new beauty standards, such as women with natural breasts, is a personal choice.
“Trending beauty standards can influence individual preferences, but the decision to remove implants should be based on each person’s needs and desires. Some women may choose to have the implants removed to achieve a more natural look, while others may prefer to keep them. It is important to remember that each person has their own definition of beauty and that there is no right or wrong answer to this question”, explained Ricardo Cavalcanti.
According to plastic surgeon Dr. Regis Milani the prosthesis can be exchanged or removed for aesthetic purposes. For example:
– Poorly positioned prostheses, too mediated or too lateralized.
– When the woman no longer identifies with the volume of the implants, which may seem too small or too large for the patient’s new moment.
– In cases of sagging breasts, which are common when the woman suffers the accordion effect or after pregnancy or breastfeeding.
“A surgery called mastopexy or breast lift may be indicated. And at that moment it ends up being indicated to exchange the implants”- commented Regis Milani.
It is essential to remember that each plastic surgery is performed individually and that the patient should only do it if she really feels like it, and not because of external pressure. In addition, it is important to talk to the specialist doctor and clarify common doubts about this process, and create real expectations about the result.
