Welcome! My name is Jenny Eden. I am the owner and creator of EdenKnowsImplants.com, and I’m so excited you are taking the first step to learning more about breast augmentation!
I hadn’t been happy with my breasts for years, and it wasn’t until finding out that my friend Mary had implants that I decided to learn more about them.. I was excited, fearful, even a little bit embarrassed—and I had SO many questions.
I began my research, but then I ran into a problem: information overload. After spending a few days looking around the internet for help, I remember telling my husband:
That’s exactly why I’ve created this site. You’ve made an extremely courageous decision to take a step toward getting an augmentation, and I want this to be a simple and enjoyable process for you.
My hope is that everything on this site helps you decide what’s best for you and leaves you feeling confident and empowered. Let's dive in!
The Elephant in the Room
I want to start right out by debunking one of the weirdest myths about breast augmentation:
Strippers and pornstars aren’t the only women on the planet who want to have bigger boobs. There. I said it.
In fact, using statistics straight from The American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, the most common woman who gets a breast augmentation is:
- In her mid-30’s
- Married or in a longterm relationship
- And has a college education
In other words, there is absolutely nothing weird or shameful about wanting to get breast implants.
Did you know that the number one reason women get implants is to help boost their self confidence? (and 94% say they are happy with their decision!) In the United States alone, around 300,000 women a year get the procedure… I promise there aren’t that many exotic dancers out there, so be proud of your decision to do something for yourself.
Now that I’ve given you the emotional pep talk, there’s one more thing I want to make sure we talk about before getting into the more tangible aspects of breast augmentation…
Is The Risk Worth The Reward?
I’m not going to skirt the fact that there are risks involved with getting a breast augmentation. Even though less than a teaspoon of blood is lost during the procedure, it’s still a legitimate surgery. Complications such as “capsular contracture” and “bottoming out” can also happen after the surgery.
I’m a bit of a hypochondriac, so it was helpful for me to know that 9 out of 10 augmentations are flawless and the ones that aren’t are almost always able to be revised. But of course, like anything, you can find plenty of horror stories online with a quick Google search. I wasn’t interested in unlikely, worst-case scenarios, so I’ll leave it up to you if you want to go dig those up.
Ultimately, in the same way you decide to get on an airplane or drive a car, it’s up to you to determine if the risks are outweighed by the rewards. Personally, the rewards have been exponentially greater than the risks, and you can watch my entire breast augmentation experience on YouTube:
Now, let’s look at the step-by-step path I recommend for women considering implants…
Step #1: Get Your Bearings
As you get started, it’s completely normal to have a lot of questions or even feel overwhelmed.
That’s why it’s really important for you to relax and explore.
You don’t need all the answers right now, and it’s perfectly fine if you’re not even sure you want a breast augmentation. Take a deep breath and let it out.
It’s your body, your timeline, and your decision.
To help you get started, I’ve removed all the noise and put the most important things you need to know into a daily email series where I’ll answer questions like:
- How much do breast implants cost?
- How long will they last?
- Will people be able to tell?
- What about breastfeeding?
- What’s the difference in saline and silicone?
