A dear friend of the family died of silicone posioning a few years ago.  My mother and I were in the gallery (teaching hospital) during the surgery she had to remove them.  What they pulled out of her was a black honey jam looking slim.  After seeing that, I would never have them, nor would I ever support that decision made by a friend or family member.  They scare the crap out of me. 

There is a new alternative that my plastic surgeon told me about (I have to have a broken nose fixed).  They take all of your own fat tissues and refold them to create alittle more umph.  That only works for one cup size or to put back up what has fallen with age.

@tksjewelry: Okay, that story (along with my obsessive viewing of Nip/Tuck via Netflix) has turned me off to the prospect forever. The fat-folding procedure sounds interesting, though I don’t think I’d want to go under the knife for a cosmetic procedure.

I asked all sorts of questions about everything cosmetically related since I have to go under the knife to fix a deviated septum and I just can’t breath.  He actually scared me off of alot of things, he was pretty straight forward with me as I used to work for his wife in politics.  He showed me all sorts of real photos of scars and how long everything really takes to heal.  Ok, I will just get the nose fixed.

What type of body frame do you have?  I personally wouldn’t do it if you are skinny or petite.  Having heavier breasts will cause back problems.  I’m not that tall and have D cups.  My back hurts constantly.  I wish I could get a reduction.

My aunt got hers done last year.  She went from a 32B to a 36C, and she looks great! Her recovery was really, really easy.  She said the whole process was easier than some of her dental work.  I know everyone has different results, but she was beyond thrilled with hers.

have you met with any doctors? Free consultations could help you feel out the water

My SIL had B’s put in a long time ago and has been happy with them for years. They aren’t high profile and look very natural. I had a few girls in my sorority get theirs done and they were very obvious on the other hand. Oh and they didn’t buy new clothes to accomodate their new breast size. You’ll definitely want new shirts =]. I know I’m going to get mine fixed after i have kids =P

I had my breasts done a year and a half ago and my only regret is that i didn’t do it sooner! It was a really easy surgery and I was back to work in four days. My best friend had her wisdom teeth out the same day and she was way worse off than I was. I did a lot of research and found a great board certified surgeon. This was something that I have thought about for years and looked into carefully. You should definitely do your research on surgeons and go to a bunch of free consultations. Good luck!

EDIT- By The Way, I am 5’2″ and 115 lbs. I was smaller than an A before and now I am a 34 C. So far, no back issues.

I had mine done about 10 years ago. I was done having kids and I wanted back what I had before I had kids. It was one of the best decisions I ever made. I had them done by a doctor in Arlingon. If you want his name, please PM me. I couldn’t be happier, and they look awesome in my gown too 🙂

Also, I am 5″ 1/2″ and petitie and I don’t have any back problems.

My SO’s ex got them while he was with her. He hated them. Said they looked awful, felt awful, all around a giant waste of money that deformed her. There are a few great surgeons out there, but I’d say it’s a gamble.

What happens to implants once you’re pregnant?  I don’t have implants but the thought of having implants on top of how much my boobs have gotten bigger during pregnancy I feel like I’d fall over.

I had mine done 9 years ago and it was the best $ I’ve ever spent on myself! Mine are saline and will probably need to be replaced in a few years, but that’s okay because I actually like the idea of always having perky boobs and changing the size as I age.

I couldn’t fit into the smallest bras available on the market, I literally had no definition on my chest whatsoever. It was incredably humiliating, I didn’t feel like a woman. I had no hesitancies about the surgery and no regrets afterwards. It changed my life, I am way more confident and outgoing. And people are shocked when they find out I have implants, it looks perfectly natural, probably because i have ample hips and butt.

The surgery was quick, about 2 hours and after maybe 2 days I still had some pain but was totally back to normal otherwise. I only took a few of the powerful pain meds until the side effects were worse than the pain. Good old tylenol was fine at that point.

I love my breats. I am a size 34C and they are real. They are perfect. I don’t feel that breast implants are necessary until after having kids. That is just how I feel cause having kids changes your body so much. I plan to get mine lifted and whatever else after I am done having kids but before, I don’t see the point.
