i seriously dont find women with breast implants attractive...it shows they are insecure within themselves and cannot accept who they are and how they were created.i was watching dr.90210 now and i am horrified to see the types of things women would do to look better...well..."better"
|hmmm on Jan 10, 2008 @ 06:44 pm|
I wouldn't say just because a woman has implants that I would find her any less attractive. But I do agree with you in that it does make me stop and wonder about her sense of self. But if that's what it takes for her to be happy, who am I to judge her for that? If she's doing it for herself and nobody else, I don't see the harm. Now if she were only doing it to try to get a man's attention or something like that...
My mother got implants some years ago. She swears it was something she did for herself and that's something I have always doubted because it was not too long after that she got serious with the man she's now married to - who is coincidentally the kind of man who wants a picture-perfect little trophy wife to show off to his friends. But I digress... she says she's happier with them than she was without, and if that's the case then so be it. To each her own.
My boyfriend's opinion? Fake breasts might be ok to look at, but real ones are more fun and make better "pillows". ;-) Goodness knows I've got plenty of "padding" for him to fall asleep on.... LOL

Omg, you are the shallow one, not women with breast implants. Do you actually know someone that had a breast augmentation? No? Think again. You probably do but they just don't announce it because of your ignorant view on this. We are not "insecure" with who we are or how we were created. Yes, I say we, because I mean myself along with every other women that has them. Yes, I have breast implants. So what? My clothes fit better, I look more proportionate and have more confidence with hubby. There are plently of personal reasons a woman will get this done, but it all comes down to doing it for herself. Most of the women just want to achieve a sense of normalcy. Women who's breasts look deflated and stretched due to a lot of weight loss or changes caused by pregnancy and breastfeeding. Women like myself who have deformities or assymetries where things just didn't develop right. It's not about just wanting big boobs. Most women are married or have a significant other. We don't do this to get attention or "pick up guys". A lot of us are professionals, not just strippers and porn stars. (Sure a lot of them have obvious boob jobs but that demographic is not necessarly the norm.) Judge me if you will, (I know you will), but I am happy and have natural looking results. I finally look like I have "normal" breasts. And I don't care what anyone thinks.

|Plastic surgery reviews on Jan 10, 2008 @ 10:04 pm|
Those of you who have had experience should add your reviews here. We do have a category for plastic surgeons (under Wellness) and I think that info would be useful.
I think this is a really interesting topic. It's great that the first poster likes a natural woman, but you always have to be careful in assuming everyone does something for the same reasons. There are many reasons someone could choose to get implants as mentioned in the last comment and it isn't always because they have a terrible self esteem. It could be because of deformities, abnormalities or sagging from breast feeding. If you have crooked teeth you'll probably get braces, no?
However surgery is obviously much more serious and there are a number of things to consider when it comes to getting a boob job:
- It's not permanent. You will eventually have to go under the knife again. That could be in 10 years when they need to be replaced or in 10 months if something goes wrong.
- There are risks involved with the surgery itself. Complications are rare but things can happen. It is really important that you do your research and find the right Doctor. Don't go with someone because they fit your price range. Go with someone that is board certified and find out if they do their operation at the hospital or a certified clinic. Better to save up until you can really afford it than quickly do it for cheap. There are uncertified clinics out there that don't adhere to the proper standards and you don't want to mess around with that.
- You might get the wrong kind of attention if you go too big. Small breasted women are mostly used to being looked in the eye... this may change.
My personal opinion is that If you have nice looking breasts even if they are small you should probably avoid implants as you may regret it if things don't go as planned. However, if you are really self conscious about them because of the reasons listed above I totally understand why someone would want to go that route.

first of all...no need to get so feisty...i am expressing my views on women who do it for the sake of others.do u not think i know that there is plastic surgery?im talking about cosmetic surgery...done for other reasons such as impressing men.and i do know someone that has had breast implants.so what if i feel natural is better?sorry if my topic seemed to be 'shallow',but i obviously didnt elaborate well enough.
|touchie subject on Jan 11, 2008 @ 01:48 pm|
As a woman who has naturally large breasts I find it very hard to understand why women want to get breast implants for that reason (I understand the other side to do with weight loss, pregnancy, substantial breast size difference between the two) Due to having a naturally large breasts I've often considered reduction surgery - but in my case that can't happen until I have kids and decide I'm done with it!
For those doing it just to have a large chest, I think misschickie raises a lot of good points!
To add to what she said, you can experience very bad back problems. The heavier your chest the more strain is put on your back and your neck. I've spent all of my teenage and young adult life trying to keep my back muscles strong and deal with constant neck pain.
To comment on not being looked in the eye, it is so true. When I first meet a guy it is honestly the first thing they notice and I've actually called guys out on it. Some guys get past it, others don't. I've been overly impressed with the select few guys who take the time to look at me. It's something you have to be okay with and get used to.
At the end of the day it is up to you but there is a lot to consider on the subject and I think that everyone needs to do research. If you decide it is right for you than great but if not, it's okay too.
|Yikes...touchy subject indeed!!! on Jan 11, 2008 @ 03:40 pm|
I think the first poster here was probably referring to the people who go and have huge implants or whose reasons for getting them is indeed to get attention. I personally am not a believer in getting implants but that may be because chest size has never been an issue for me. If anything I have been struggling to workout more and shrink em! Anyway, having said that, I have had friends who have thought of getting implants because they have smaller chests and would like a curvier appearance or because they have developped asymmetrically. People get this type of surgery for many different reasons and I think others have to always remember that. I don't think most people would look at any kind of surgery as something to be taken lightly so if someone is getting this done, they have hopefully thought it through and have their personal reasons for having it done. Anyway, I am not a big fan in those who go out and get triple F sized boobs when they are waifer thin because I just don't think it is practical or looks natural (and as StephB mentioned, you could seriously hurt your beck); however if someone is getting implants to even things out or because it personally makes them feel better then I say, do what you think is best for you.
|FYI on Jan 11, 2008 @ 06:16 pm|
I really don't want to comment anymore on this but I just thought I'd add a few points. Other than those that work in the adult entertainment industry, no womem I've talked to (and I talk to plenty that have had a BA) go out to get huge size F boobs. That is such a huge misconception. As a matter of fact any responsible plastic surgeon will not place implants that are too big for someone's body due to the possibility if increased complications. And no, reasonably sized breasts implants will not cause back problems. This is yet another misconception. And lastly, even if somone with small breasts (or no breasts), that has no sag/deflation/assymetries etc, and wants a BA just to add volume and fullness, well power to her then.
If anyone wants to ask me anything else about this feel free, I don't mind sharing.
And for those men who think "natural" is better, they don't know what their missing! haha...Besides, with today's implants most feel pretty nice too!

|Dairinn, Where did you go? on Jan 12, 2008 @ 10:41 am|
Thanks for sharing the other side of the equation. I think this is a great discussion because a lot of different points of view are represented.
Do you mind sharing your experience with the plastic surgeon so those considering know a good recommendation?
|My PS on Jan 12, 2008 @ 04:17 pm|
I went to Dr. Mitchell Brown in Toronto. I'll post a review of my experience at some point in the future. I've posted a review on another forum but it's all BA related and I have an avatar pic (of my boobs, but clothed so don't get too exited people) so I'm not sure I want to post the link, given some of the negative comments here. I'd say PM me but doesn't look like you can do that here. Maybe I'll look into this meebo thing...
Just one final comment, I've looked back on the posts and what bothered me in the first place is that the first poster thinks all women that have breast implants are unnattractive. So basically they are assuming I am unnattractive just because of that reason. Now that is shallow...not to mention stereotypical. I bet if you met me you'd never even know I had a BA.

i took back what i said and clarified it...i really dont think it's neccessary to keep posting in such a rude manner.I AM SORRY if i offended you in any way,i really am...but get what im saying...huge over-done,for the wrng reasn,pair of boobs..is what i find unattractive.thats my opinion.i just feel the media of 2day play a huge role in women wanting to undergo surgery...think about it,back in the day,they never had surgeons who could perform such risky ops and they learned to live with themselves...right?2day,we have supermodels being flashed in our faces everyday which,being a proven fact,manipulates us subconsciously.hope that makes it more clear!cherio
