Most pop culture fans are very familiar with Denise Richards, either for her turn as the lovely, demure girl-next-door in "Starship Troopers," as one of the newer generation Bond Girls, or for her steamy liplock with Neve Campbell in "Wild Things". Arguably better known for her curvy figure than for her acting chops, Richards has also been featured several times in prominent male magazines like Maxim, FHM and Playboy. In a recent interview with Howard Stern, Richards talked candidly about the history of her two most popular assets, her breasts.
Richards had recently taken time away from acting to raise her two daughters, both fathered by Charlie Sheen. But last year, Richards made a return to Hollywood through the avenue of reality television. After being a celebrity contestant on "Dancing with the Stars" in Season 8, Richards began her own reality series, "Denise Richards: It's Complicated," where her day-to-day trials and tribulations played out before a live camera. The second season of Richards' reality show premieres in June of '09. But none of this news could sidetrack Stern from catching up and inquiring after Richards' famous pair.
"I've never talked about it but I'll talk about it with you because I can't lie to you," Richards said when Stern led off the breast augmentation discussion. Richards said she's undergone breast augmentation three times, and admittedly learned some things in the process. Richards' first breast augmentation, which she received at the age of 19 after admiring a roommate's implants, resulted in complications that made her seek a second procedure.
For Denise Richards' second breast augmentation, which she completed in the 90s before starring in the above-mentioned films, the implants were enlarged from their previous size. Richards said the second breast implants "looked ridiculous on my frame" and had to be replaced in a third breast augmentation procedure. Richards selected smaller implants for the third procedure, which she felt better suited her.
Confiding in Stern, Richards expressed regret for getting breast implants so impulsively and at such a young age. In a few words of advice to young girls, Richards said, "make sure you're older, make sure you do research". Richards also implied that her complications with the first breast augmentation were due to her young age, saying "I would encourage anyone that young to not do it because you don't realize the complications, the things that can go wrong as they did with me".
Richards' assertion that age and procedure research can make a difference in terms of a breast surgery's outcome is quite true. By researching the pros and cons of breast augmentation surgery beforehand, you will be better prepared to make important decisions concerning your implants, and you will feel more confident in pursuing and planning your treatment. Studying up on breast augmentation prior to surgery will also give patients a good understanding of the risks involved, and help educate them on proper safety measures.
Because young women in their teen years are typically still developing, it can be riskier to undergo teen breast augmentation as opposed to breast augmentation as an adult. In spite of this fact, the number of teens getting breast implants and breast augmentation continues to rise in the U.S. For teens and for other patients who are more susceptible to breast surgery risks, preparatory research is even more important.
If you'd like to learn more about specific types of breast implants, such as silicone and saline, get more information about the risks and benefits of breast surgery, and/or discover which type of breast augmentation procedure is best suited to meet your needs, scheduling a consultation with a professional plastic surgeon is a step in the right direction.
