Busty British women are finding another way to celebrate their body confidence by throwing ‘boobirthdays’ to mark the anniversary of their breast augmentation surgery, in a bid to demonstrate the positive effect it has had on their lives.
With specific blogs and sites dedicated to cosmetic surgery, such as boobjobsupportforum.forumotion.co.uk, being used by bloggers to celebrate boobirthdays, nurses at The Harley Medical Group, the UK’s biggest cosmetic surgery provider, have noticed that women are now taking this growing trend offline. Nurses across the Group’s 31 clinics have reported that women are having boob job birthdays in their homes with family and friends, with the common aim of wanting to share with other women and with each other, how great they feel.
Lisa Littlehales, specialist nurse counsellor at The Harley Medical Group, says: “Lots of our patients keep in touch with the nurses who cared for them during their surgery process and they have noticed a small but significant number of these women comment that they like to mark the date of their breast enlargement each year – with many of our nurses even being invited to the patient’s big day. For many women, this date marks a turning point in their lives from feeling under confident, to loving the skin they are in and they like to celebrate their new lives each year.”
Says Emma Parmenter, 41, who had a breast enlargement at The Harley Medical Group: “I had my breast enlargement when I was 31 as I had very small breasts which greatly affected my confidence. My surgery was the best thing I have ever done, it completely changed my life and my image confidence has been great ever since.”
Emma continues: “I’m 41 now and feel really lucky to still feel as confident about my breasts as I was ten years ago when I first had surgery. I was so close to the nurse who looked after me throughout the experience and during my aftercare, when I decided to throw a party in celebration of my breast augmentation anniversary, she was the first person I invited. I’m still thrilled with the results and more confident than ever – I can’t think of any better reason to celebrate!”
