Absolutely!!! I wear a 36E bra, and I would just about KILL for a breast reduction. DH and I are TTC so I'm waiting. I want to still be able to nurse.
That said, NO I would never be ok with a teen having cosmetic surgery of any kind. When I was a kid I always wanted a nose job. I thought my nose was SO UGLY. Now that I'm older I wouldn't change it at all. It's just who I am. Teenagers are looking at themselves through the lens of their peers. I think they should wait until they can see themselves with their own eyes rather than through the critical eyes of other teens. Does that make sense?
i would NEVER let my child get plastic surgery for any reason unless it was medically necessary....as for myself??? even though i would like a tummy tuck...would i ever actually do it if i had the funds? no... cause to me its just a waste of money anyways...you are gonna get old and saggy no matter what...why waste the money?
No plastic surgery for me. Yeah, I'd love to see a little less flab here & there, but eh, it's me. I'm pretty happy with how I look.
I would never allow Leah to get plastic surgery unless absolutely medically necessary. As a teenager, you're still growing and developing, both physically AND emotionally. Not to mention, I would never want to send the message that her body is flawed in some way and she should "fix" it.
I've definitely thrown around the ideas of a tummy tuck here and there but honestly I'd feel like it was a waste of money and that it was cheating lol I wouldn't be able to do it.
No way would I ever let my kids get plastic surgery done without a medical necessity backing it. I'm really hoping by the time they're adults I'll have helped teach them to love themselves for who they are and not for who/what they think they should look like.
I've had a breast reduction and if losing weight doesn't take them back down to a manageable size after I'm done having children, I will probably save to get another one along with a lift!
I come from a different perspective having had DDD/E breasts at 15 years old. If my daughters happen to be equally blessed and as miserable as I was physically and emotion-wise, I think I would be willing to allow something like a breast reduction before they turn 18. It would depend on their maturity and the rationale behind it. Otherwise, it would have to be for something that is causing them serious psychological harm (like a deformity) or they'd have to wait until they're 18 years old.
