Some women celebrate the anniversary of their breast augmentations
July 7, 2011
Women who undergo breast augmentation are often proud of their results and want their friends to know about it. Some women are taking this one step further and celebrating what has come to be known as a "boobirthday." In other words, they are setting aside time to commemorate their new chests one year after their cosmetic procedure, according to Female First.
Often the plastic surgeons and nurses who helped undertake the cosmetic procedure are invited to these parties. Such was the case with Emma Parmenter, who recently celebrated her 10th boobirthday.
"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," Parmenter told the news source.
Most of the women who celebrate these peculiar holidays are doing so because they want to show their support for breast implants and other breast surgeries.
Women whose breasts have changed since childbirth, or individuals who are unsatisfied with their breasts, may be good candidates for a breast augmentation surgery, according to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.
