I'm thinking Breast Implants. Would you ever get these? I want to first slim down and then get them. My boyfriend says I dont need them but I see the way he looks at women with large breasts.I cant help the fact I wasnt born with them. The women that are are very blessed! I am probably naturally an A cup though I am currently a little chubby bout 196 5'6 so they are a B or more but its just fat because I was flat when I weighed 120. Even then I didn't like my body because I felt I looked like a boy. If I lose the extra weight I will lose the extra I had grown as well.

I'll trade you. I actually want to get a reduction. My husband says I have to wait until after we are sure we are done having kids because there is no reason to get it done then have it ruined by getting pregnant and all that jazz. I'm a 44DD right now. When I was pregnant with my oldest I got up to a 48DD. Heck I was a perfect 32C at 12 years old (stole bras from my mom) and by the time I graduated high school I was a 40D. I hated it. I had 40 year old men ogling me when I was a teenager and it made me very self conscience. I'd rather be a C cup right now. But first I have to lose about 100lbs. Then I'll see where I am.

It's a case of those who don't have want. And those that have(at least a good number of us)would gladly be rid of them. Bigger isn't always better. If YOU want them please do research. Make certain your surgeon is board certified. Get references from your current physician. Make certain to go in with a list of health questions. AND GET ANSWERS!!Pain management after surgery. Make sure they properly teach you how to deal with the scarring. Yes whether you are reducing or implanting, there is scarring. I have both friends and family that have gone through these procedures. I wouldn't just do it for your boyfriend. Make sure you want it for yourself. For me, having body altering surgery would have to be a long thought out process. Because I have to live with it. It's my body.

I've always been a DD...I've always wanted a smaller chest. Even when I was a teen and weighed around 125 I still had huge boobs. I was built like Dolly Parton...tiny waist and huge boobs. **AT PEACE WITHIN** ~~STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS~~

I have been there. Two years ago I was 105lbs and only had a 29 AA cup. I could not fill any brawls out. I felt so bad about myself. I decided to get implants. I love them and it helped my self-esteem so much.It turned out to be the best thing I could have ever one for myself.

Yes I would. I will some day, after my daughter stops nursing. After having and nursing 4 children, they just aren't what they once were. I am a very small and petite person by nature. I am not going to go out and get huge implants unproportional to my body. I will research my doctors and I already know that I want them placed under the muscle. My husband isn't exactly thrilled about the idea, but it's for me.

yea, think about when they are around 50, blessed with backpain and t*ts that hang down to their knees, had to be sarcastic. Since i am a part of the male side of the human race, i dont have any idea what ur talking about when it comes to bra sizes. Neither do i want to do it. Id rather wait until cyborg implants become available and get some extra memory and a new processor. If you want to have plastic surgery, id advice taking a look at what risks there is envolved. If you still feel its worth it the go ahead.

Before you get your heart set on getting them I would think about a few things. The major one would be. Who am I doing this for? Am I doing this for me? Or am I doing this to change myself so my boyfriend will like me more, or think I am sexier? If your doing it for yourself then your thoughts are in the right place. From there I would do a lot of research about doctors in your area, what the risks are, and think about if your willing to take the chance that it could end up going wrong. I would find out what the chances are of that, and I would also think about. Can I afford this? Do I need to change myself to feel good about me? Do I need to change myself to look better for someone else? For the longest time I have struggled with my body images. Mainly my weight. When I tried to drop it to look good for someone else I instead gained it by self sabtoging because I was doing it for someone else. Not for me. When I just finally said, I want to do it for me, then it started coming off because I was ready to make the changes for the right reasons. Just a little food for thought!
