really thinking about having a boob job…
@pinkpetal: talk to a doctor or maybe a therapist about why you feel like you need to alter your body in such a drastic way. Also think about long term effects. What are you going to do with breast implants when you are 70? Talk to a doctor first. I’m sure they can give you more guidence.
I havn’t had one but I’ve been to a consultation and done a lot of research. Are you having implants and a lift? Or just the implants? Silicone or saline? Under the muscle or over the muscle? A lot of considerations, right? lol
When I get mine done (and I will when I get the $11,000 it will cost:) I have to do a lift and a small implant. My issue is that I’ve had two kids and things went seriously south. lol So, I mostly need them moved back up but the doctor said if I don’t do an implant too, it will look weird. I’ve seen the pictures and he’s totally right.
I will use silicone because they have newer implants where the silicone is more viscid and less liquid-y. Less likely to leak too and they supposedly look and feel more real. They look so much better than saline, imo.
I do know too, from my friend’s experience that it’s likely you have to have them done more than once in your lifetime. It’s just a given as you age. They don’t usually last forever. Oh, and supposedly you can breast feed too, if that’s an issue.
I think that’s all I have right now. Anyone else? lol
What kind of advice are you looking for here?
My first question – how old are you?
Aka – Are you past the point where your boobs are still growing? I had growth spurts in my boobs at age 20 and again at age 23 (and gained about a cup size each time). From what I know of others, this isn’t uncommon.
i am 30 and this is something i have wanted for about 15 years! the reaon it has never happeed is due to financial reasons. i am now in a position though to make it happen!
I ave a wonderul life/job/frinds/husband/family and feel very blessed. however this is just something i think would boost my self confidence. i know it wont make the world a better place but it will make me feel good!! smaybe selfish but thats how i feel.
i was hopig to meet some bees on here wo might tell me their / friends experience of the surgery. if they have any regrets or words of wisdom!!
i have not been to any consultations yet but have 2 booked for next week.
A relative of mine got implants and they look bolted on and unnatural. Make sure you do your homework.
I had one 5 years ago. What kinds of questions do you have, specifically?
I mean it hurts like a bitch, you’ll look wonky for up to 6 weeks, you’ll feel the bag through your skin and you’ll feel it shift inside your breast, and you’ll have fabulously perfect boobs that are clearly false for up to a year before they settle and look more natural. Mine have settled and absolutely no one can tell they’re fake, but my mothers (yeah she got hers done too) look different because she has a very wide breastbone so hers literally never touch. She does not get cleavage.
What else can I help with?
@Miss Tattoo: I love your posts, but I have to say that I disagree with needing to see a therapist about wanting to get this done. Most women who do it don’t have anything psychological going on, they just… want it. To me its no different than wanting a face lift, botox, etc.
I agree with the others, make sure you do the research. You’re 30 so you’re definitely grown up. The only thing I would be concerned about is breastfeeding, I’m not sure how it works with implants or if you’re interested in breastfeeding.
I sympathize b/c when I’m thin, I have very small breasts.
My advice is don’t go too big, then you get that “made out of plastic-balloon” look. Also going behind the muscle, from what I’ve seen gives a much more natural look.
Things to keep in mind: you may lose all sensitivity in your nipples if not your entire breast. I know one person who got them whose boobs are now completely numb. Going behind the muscle gives this less of a chance of happening, but if they need to reposition your nipple say goodbye to all feeling there. They will most likely need to be redone every 10 years. Brest implants do not last forever and if you let them go too long they can leak and make you very sick.
I personally haven’t had one done (although I may need mine lifted eventually, I have D’s) but the majority of the women in my family have had them done, both behind the muscle and in front, absolutely ridiculous huge or just up a couple cup sizes so I know a ton of people who have had this done and these are my observations.
I think you need to look deeper into why you think bigger breasts will make you feel better about yourself. Seems like a “quick fix” for an overarching problem. If you decide to get them and are willing to spend the money, realize that it will be a lifetime investment – you will need to get them redone and you will need to be able to pay for that.
@pinkpetal: I can’t give a whole lot of advice because my family has the opposite issue. My mom had to have a reduction (they were giving her back problems) and I likely will have to at some point as well (I’m a 36F).
Since you are 30 and are obviously grown, go ahead if this is something you are truely interested in. Just make sure you do your research and don’t go too big. I promise, big boobs aren’t all they’re cracked up to be. 🙂
What size are you anyways?
People who want implants don’t all have deeper issues, maybe they just want their clothes to fit better or fill out a bathing suit!
I want some new boobs too. Hubby says he likes natural. I asked him, wouldn’t you prefer to look at some prettier, bigger ones? His response, ‘naw, I’d prefer to look at a bigger TV!’ not sure how i’m supposed to take that! he was kidding, of course.
Though I’d love to get some new girls I haven’t had too much luck with cosmetic enhancements so I just don’t think I’ll go there with surgery. I got laser hair removal and I’m still shaving. I got laser eye surgery and I’m still wearing glasses. I got invisalign (clear braces) and I still have a gap! So I’m thinking God’s trying to tell me to love myself as is!!
