Breast Augmentation for Active Women
Active women have some special concerns when considering breast augmentation. First, size matters. Women who are active in athletic events should take that into account and not get implants that are too large for the level of movement required by your sport or activity. A larger-chested woman can find challenges in tennis, for example, as opponents will commonly return to her backhand side. Golfers need to be able to keep a long, smooth, uninterrupted swing. Swimmers find that breast implants increase their drag, and skiers can find that implants that are too wide interfere with maneuvering and should consider breast implants with a higher profile. Avid fitness enthusiasts and runners do not generally experience difficulties as long as they do not go too large and remember to wear a sports bra.
