I know some people really hate the idea of a women getting breast augmentation. And I know some really love the idea...... Do you think that boob jobs, are bad for society? Would you ever get one?

It doesn't bother me at all if other people get them. I would probably want one, not an enlargement, but a lift if it weren't for problems with breastfeeding. I want to be able to nurse my future children. Plus, it's freakin expensive and I'd be nervous I'd get a sketchy doctor.

I would get one! But not until I am done having babies and nursing. We can afford it and I really dont find my breasts that attractive. Its not a self esteem issue. I have good self esteem and if I didnt get them done nothing would change. I would just like to fill out a sweater lol I wouldnt go crazy and get some porn star boobs, just an average size.

I'm not against them...I'm not for them either. I just really wish women felt more comfortable with their bodies (small boned, big boned, small breasts, large breasts) in general.

I personally dont have a problem with them.. I have more than enough so I dont need them.. Well actually I have too much LOL.. I would like to get a lift after I lose some weight.. I think breast augmentation is ok for those who have had breast cancer and want reconstructive surgeries that is a valid reason IMO.. Those who just want them for attention seeking motives I do not agree with that.. A nice size is ok but too big is just tacky

I see what you are saying, and I agree that some woman do get them for attention. I know a lot of women however, who did it for self esteem. They were just uncomfortable in their own body, whether they were too big OR too small (and they adjusted as needed). I am not talking about people who want to look like pamela anderson, THAT is an attention seeker!

I am terrified of plastic surgery. With my second pregnancy, I tore the tissue that holds the left and right abdominal muscle together, so I have a bulge that looks like my belly comes to a point up and down the middle of my stomach. It will not be flat again unless I have plastic surgery to repair it, and I am terrified of it. I am *starting* to warm to the idea, but it is a BIG suregery and I am deep down thinking that I am vain for having it, since it really only upsets me when I am changing my clothes and can really see it.

Although, now that I am losing weight, it is getting more and more noticeable, since everything is going down on my belly except that, so that is why I go back and forth for getting the surgery.

Now that I am done rambling, I guess my bottom line is, if you are doing it too boost your self esteem, go for it!

I'll be the minority here with my unpopular opinion...I wish we didn't live in a brainwashed society where women need to get plastic implanted in their chests to feel better about themselves. There are girls getting implants as graduation presents What kind of message is that sending to our kids? If you don't like your body, just go shell out 10 grand, have a procedure that has many risks, including death, just so you can have bigger boobs because we "think" we need that to be happy

I don't get taking that big of a risk just for boobs. What if when they leak, you can't afford new ones? Then what? What will your family have to give up so that you can pay for them? I'd rather spend that $ on my kids & college.

Potential complications: www.fda.gov
* Asymmetry
* Breast pain
* Breast tissue atrophy
* Calcification/calcium deposits
* Capsular contracture
* Chest wall deformity
* Delayed wound healing
* Extrusion
* Galactorrhea
* Granuloma
* Hematoma
* Iatrogenic injury/damage
* Infection, including Toxic Shock Syndrome
* Inflammation/irritation
* Malposition/displacement
* Necrosis
* Nipple/breast changes
* Palpability/visibility
* Ptosis
* Redness/bruising
* Rupture/deflation
* Scarring
* Seroma
* Unsatisfactory style/size
* Wrinkling/rippling
Capsular contracture and rupture/deflation are the most common local complications that occur with both silicone gel-filled and saline-filled breast implants.
* Breast implants will not last a lifetime.
* Either because of rupture or other complications, you will probably need to have the implants removed.
* You are likely to need additional doctor visits, reoperations, or removals because of one or more complications over the course of your life.
* Many of the changes to your breast following implantation may be cosmetically undesirable and cannot be reversed.
* If you later choose to have your implants removed, you may experience unacceptable dimpling, puckering, wrinkling, breast tissue loss, or other undesirable cosmetic changes of the breasts.



Sorry, I don't get it

I don't agree with plastic surgery unless it's for a medical reason. I plan on getting a boob reduction/lift when I'm done with kids, but I have really bad back problems that require it. I think it's almost insulting to the parents when someone goes so far out of their way to permanently change their appearance. My son looks a lot like me, if he decided he was so ugly that he needed to permanantly change himself I would take that as an insult.

I feel that if a woman needs to jack up her breast size to make her feel better more power to her. I personally would never have any cosmetic type surgery done unless it was for medical reasons. I love myself just the way that I am!

I was just talking about implants...lifts, I feel are okay. I've breastfeed 2 kids, I know what you're talking about I just think that implants are not safe enough at this point, to take those risks, kwim?

Lifts are a little different IMO because you aren't adding something to your body to make yourself more attractive. And honestly, coming from someone with large breasts, they aren't all that they're cracked up to be. You get wretched back aches especially when you are working out. I feel the same way about altering your facial appearance. Now if I were burned severely in a fire or something then yes I would probably consider having some reconstructive surgery done, but other then that nada.

It doesn't bother me at all. It is just another thing to seperate us. Men wise that is. some men like them natural an some like them ummm.....not natural? I think it is a women's choice what she wants to do with her body. If I had the money I don't think I would get inplants. I think I would oppt to guy those natural breast enhancing pills,or maybe just a lift. I don't like surgery. Unless I am having my toody.

I've had them for over 5 years and I LOVE them! I did not get them for attention and I didn't have self esteem problems, I was just sick of being ill-proportioned. I always had to buy different sized bottoms and tops and couldn't ever buy a bathing suit "set" or other types of "set" outfits because the top would be too roomy. I just wanted my body to look more normal. I have 34 Ds, which is about normal by CA standards. Most people can't even tell I have implants and are shocked when I tell them because they look so natural and are the perfect size for my frame.

I have been able to breastfeed 2 babies without any problems (except the natural sore nips in the beginning). I also waited until I was married to get them because I didn't want them to be an attraction to other men. My dh was really worried about me getting them, but when he saw them, he realized that it wasn't an attention-getting ploy and he thought they were the perfect size.

I am getting them done this summer. I have been considering them for about 2 years now, and I know exactly what I want. I do not even fill an A cup, and I am tired of not filling out anything. I have done lots of research and most people tell me I should get a C cup because of my petite frame, but most of the women I have chatted with who have gone low because they thought it would “fit their frame better” were very disappointed and wished they had gone a bit larger, and some have actually went back under the knife to enlarge them again. I am getting a D cup.


This might sound funny, but I would actually like to go back to one of my old jobs, when I used to wait tables and see if I actually make more with big boobs than without. You know, just for a week and see. LOL I had the funniest boss back then, he would probably let me.

Thanks for your opinions ladies, just wanted to see were the ladies stand on this issue. Can’t wait to read more!
