I used to think that I would never get them myself but I've changed my mind after having my child and gravity is starting to affect me now
I'm interested in hearing about this more too so if anyone has gone through it please share the experience with us. I did a little research about breast implants couple of months ago and found out that the cost really depends on the doctor you choose (anywhere from $4000-$8,000) and that it's really important to do a lot of research on the doctor. It's best to go to a doctor that someone you know already has gone and is happy with the results. These days having breast implants isn't all about being porno in my opion. You can really have natural results unless you opt to have the porno look and also opt to dress like that after you get them.

I work with a lot of girls that have had it done. Unfortunitly, they all say that the Dr's almost always sway them to go bigger than they anticipated. Strange. Anyways, I'm really wanting to do this but I want to make sure its the right decision so, I figure if in a year I still want to do it, I'm doing it. A few years back I wanted to get a tattoo. I told myself that if I stil wanted it in a year then I'll do it, well about a year later I didn't want anything to do with tattoos, so this method of thinking works for me. LOL

Personally, I have naturally large breasts and it can be really annoying to find clothes that fit right! I don't know what size you are thinking of, but I have the hardest time finding button down shirts/sweaters that look right. Just something to consider. And are you sure that implants are necessary? Have you tried padded/push-up bras? I think some of them can look natural, and would cheaper/safer than having surgery.

I think big boobs are overated personally lol. My boobs aren't even that huge or anything and half the time I wish that I had smaller ones


The only thing I like that implants do is give that more *ahem* 'perky' look lol but a good bra will do that


I'm pretty happy with my body tho, so I guess at this point I could never fathom having surgery to change anything, but if you think it is something that would definitly make you happy, I say to each her own.

If I do it I'm only going to a full B small C. I'm totally happy with my body as it is, so is the man
I would do it because I think it looks great and I could wear more of a variety of clothes.

I've had it done so if your still interested let me know. I researched it forever before I did it and I'm very happy with the results.

OK, I hope I won't get bashed here, but I would never consider breast implants. (And I am barely an A cup, it's very hard for me to find bras that are small enough -- only because I have to wear a 36A to fit around my ribcage. If I could fit into a 32A or 34A the cups would fit.) But I would just feel that getting breast implants is giving into society's message that you have to have big boobs to be beautiful. Now of course you have to draw the line somewhere -- some people could argue that you shouldn't wear makeup, wear trendy clothes, lose/gain weight, shave your legs, etc because that's just fitting into to society! So I guess for me, the line is drawn at surgery and anything unhealthy (e.g. eating disorders) -- I want to make the most of the body God give me, but not try to create a whole new body!

Now I can understand the lure of wanting clothes to fit better, but honestly, as long as I can find a bra that fits I don't have problems with clothes -- or at least, if a shirt doesn't fit it's not just because my boobs are small, it's usually because my shoulders are too narrow or I'm just too slender all over
Plus with the right fitting clothes and bras (I don't even wear padded bras, just nice shaped "stiff" bras), I can still have a little cleavage and curves -- if I had much bigger boobs it would probably be out of proportion with my slender frame anyway. (Plus I've known girls that wear padded bras and lots of times you can tell, because their chest is flat above the shirt and suddenly they're curvier under the shirt! lol At least you can tell mine are real when I wear a low-cut shirt
)

But those are just my personal thoughts, I know others think differently

There was a time when I thought that I was definately going to do it. I'm small chested- 32B or 34A, depending on the brand. It's not so easy to look nice in all the tops I would like to wear, so I wanted to get my breasts done- so I could easily fill out tops.

But since then, I have seen way too much plastic surgery footage. Just watching them deters me from getting my breasts done. I mean that looks like it hurts A LOT.

To me, the health risks involved in the surgery outweigh any possible benefit. People die just from the anesthesia, like the lady who wrote the book that the First Wives Club was based on. And even if you get out of the surgery okay, you may have the hard breast thing or the implant could pop or leak, both of which mean that you have to get another surgery. I would never want to subject myself to all these risks for purely cosmetic purposes.

I'd like to note that I voted that breast implant surgery is acceptable. If you want to do it, it's fine by me. However, my personal choice is to not subject my body to unnecessary, risky surgery.

Its human nature to not be satisfied with what we've got. And us women are our own worst critic when it comes to our bodies. Those who are big busted want to be small and those who are small, want to be big. I'm the kind of person that believes we should just accept and love what we've got.

IMO, unless you've become maimed or deformed in an accident, or had your breast removed due to cancer, I don't believe in implants. Now getting them "lifted" after having kids, that I don't have a problem with. Its actual implants that I don't agree with. There are pros and cons to being either big busted or small, so there's NOTHING out there that's going to be perfect even if you do get implants. I've always been able to tell implants from non-implants from looking at photgraphs. Plus IMO, there is the stigma attached to having implants, yup - the porn star thing, etc., I look at Pamela Anderson and she's a joke, a cartoon character.
So even though she may be laughing all the way to bank, she still looks like a freak to me (and I'm being way too polite).


Anyway, that's MY opinion, not everyone else may share it, but hey, to each his/her own. I just don't believe in messing with nature.

I have 34A size and I am happy with them. I am sure my husband would like it bigger but he never complained about them. I am a tiny woman and I don't want to attrack all attention to a certain place.... I bought a push up bra from Victoria Secret one time and at 4th of July picnic, all male friends talked to my chest instead of my face
It made me very uncomfortable and never wanted to wear it again.

Hmmmm, interesting topic. OK, so I am in a business where how I look and how my body looks really matters. I never really gave much thought to implants. I was a full D cup when I was 12 yrs old, but then I lost some weight in HS and the first thing that went were my breasts. Before I had my son I was a full C, then I breastfed for a minute and blew up to an Fcup. Now I'm barely fitting into a C. I went back in front of the camera and considered implants, but not too seriously. I did visit about 5 doctors for consultations just to see my options. Now, I'm in the best shape I've ever been in my life and for the first time ever I can't stand my breasts at all. After months of discussions and arguments with my BF, I've finally got him to agree with me and this means I'm getting implants as soon as we can schedule some time to take a few weeks off and as soon as I can be fit into Dr. Garth Fisher's appts. Now, regardless of what I do for a living, I think I'd still be getting breasts now just cuz I want to . I've always had a nice little hourglass shape but I feel like I'm lacking so much right now in the chest compared to what I used to have,so just to put myself at ease I need a little help from the DR
But I'm only filling up the skin I've got...I don't want HUGE I just want full.

Yeah Lilla, me too 34A -(Itty-bitty-titty-club) (& proud of it )


- At this point of time in my life, the thought of getting implants scares me
with all the recalls with silicone, and problems down the road people have had....no way, jose !


What I guess that some people don't realize, is that they say "I'm getting saline implants, not silicone"!!, However, don't they realize that they're still made with silicone??? (duh), - saline is just the solution thats injected into the bag.,silicone is silicone & it's still an un-natural substance that you're putting in your body

How can I keep on complaining after that? :icon_love hehe, hubby does the same thing with me -- but he is obsessed with my boobs and probably always will be regardless of their size

If they sag after having kids, an uplift is something i'd consider. each to their own. xx

i don't even know how big 36FF is, but i'm a 40C and if i'm big, then WOW, you're huge LOL!

i always thought about getting implants (to make them a little bigger), but i guess i thought about it because i knew i could chicken out any time. i never see anything wrong with girls who want them, though.

I would love to get implants. There is several of my friend that would also do it, we always joke that if we all went at the same time maybe we could get a better deal. Everyone told me after breastfeeding my kids that I would keep the big boobs. They all LIED! My kids sucked me dry. Theres nothing left. I'm sure that I will never get the implants too expensive, but I can dream. Like someone else said you always want what you don't have.
