^Absolutely true. You've got to look at your frame and remember that you don't want to look like a beanstalk with two pumpkins grafted at the top under a cantelope of a head...

When u have small boobs it doesn't matter if they look fake or not, trust me! I've had less than an A cup all my life. It has boosted my confidence completely. All everyone does is stare at them. It's pretty funny.

I'm glad you like them. biggrin.gif I was a B before I had mine done, and the C/Ds suit my frame just great. I would feel silly with larger ones, myself.

I really want implants. Im married and I know my husband loves me no matter what, but I really need to boost my own self confidence because it doesnt matter what he tells me, mine are so extremely small and Im so conscious about them. I guess I would say mine are like Debra Messing's size.

Ok so since I do not have a lot of natural fat in mine does that mean that they are inevitably going to look really unnatural? Ive always heard that women who have more natural tissue there already end up having it look more natural, which makes sense to me but is that true?

More tissue does help them look more natural, as does sub-muscular implantation so you don't get the suction cup effect of two coconuts stuck to the chest wall. The muscle helps hold down the implants into a natural shape and form.

It is not a good idea to go really big, though, if you have a small frame. First, the lack of tissue will really make the surgery hurt like crazy for a while. Second, it just won't look very natural.

The max you should go is to a C comparable size; your surgeon will be able to show you pictures of pre and post surgery with clients who have a similar size and end result you want.

I picked the look I wanted from the several before and afters I saw. The after I liked was actually a nurse who worked there. She was absolutely thrilled with her results, as am I.

I had a breast lift after I finished breastfeeding my second child .... really didn't care for the deflated balloon look. smile.gif I got small implants as part of the procedure, to give my breasts more fullness on top.

I was a C cup to begin with, so I was very emphatic with my surgeon about not getting any bigger than that. I have broad shoulders and pretty muscular arms, and I think larger breasts would have made me excessively top-heavy.

Anyway, I'm thrilled with my results ..... my breasts look and feel extremely natural, and the scars from the lift have faded really well.

I totally support women who want to augment their breasts for personal reasons, but I do advise anyone considering the process to think long and hard about how big they want to go. My sister-in-law, who has a very similar build to mine -- tall, athletic, broad-shouldered -- went for a large D-cup. Big mistake, IMO ..... she used to look really elegant in her clothes, and now she's just all boobs.


Exactly! They were so nicely shaped before - now I have to 'fluff' 'em up in my bra dry.gif Is this the surgery where they use netting to reinforce the shape of the breast and alleviate sagging? That looks promising. How painful on a scale of 1-childbirth biggrin.gif

What are these comments that having larger boobs makes you more feminine? rolleyes.gif

Some women look fine with implants; they don't go too large & don't suddenly feel the need to invest in skanky halter tops. Still others look like some ridiculous science experiment gone wrong....and the scary part is that's the look some women want. They don't even have breasts anymore; they have some imaginary body part invented in a laboratory.
My sister had a friend who got too large implants & she looked stupid. It didn't make her seem more feminine at all. She just looked like a big fat cow to me.

My mom's friends has had them a long time & you would never know it, she didn't go crazy with it. She has had to have them replaced every about 10 years though, so twice so far (I know because my mom drove her). I think that's something to think about, especially if you are very young & get them. Plus most women gain weight with age & if you have children that can really change your body. You probably won't stay the same size the rest of your life. I never understand why 18 year olds run out & get boob jobs...being small & perky has long been associated with youth, so I say enjoy it now. You can look elegant and very feminine with small breasts.

Well to be quite honest I have always been toying with the idea of a breast augmentation/enlargement for two reasons, one because I feel like my breasts are small to suit my body type and everytime I lose weight they are the first thing to go sad.gif , and two because the first time I went on BC (Diane 35) it caused one of my breats to grow bigger than the other. Now I know its normal for most women to have an uneveness in their breast size, but its something that has always personally bothered me and I just wish my breasts were more even and larger in size (I would go for a full C cup) . However since I still pretty young (18) I think I will try to wait untill I am 21 or so and see how I feel then. Untill then I guess I can always hope that they will grow bigger lol.gif

I support a woman's right to choose. If she thinks enhanced breasts will give her more confidence then I say to go for it. Until society decides to come down off its high horse and stop judging people based on looks, I don't think it's really our place to say whether women should get their breasts augmented.

I'm a guy, and I hate breast implants. Bigger does not mean better.

My two cents.

No offense to anyone but it's really sad that so many women are made to feel so inferior that they have to get surgery to feel beautiful! I'm 5'5, 115 lb and a 36B and my man loves me as is! Actually my guy doesn't like large boobs, he says they get in the way. It does seem most men like huge boobs and fake looking women though. Society fucks people up with the standards of what a woman should look like.

i think a woman should get them if she wants them without anyone giving her a hard time for it, and in all reality no one has the right to make someone feel bad just because they've had them done, or to not get them..... its a personal choice, which is the REALITY

anyways now that i've ranted a llil bit.... i don't have implants but i want them, and i'll get them someday, but i know that it wont be for another few years due to lack of $funds sad.gif my breasts deflate everytime i loose weight, and ever since i had my daughter at age 21, my breasts have lost a lot of tissue from just being pregnant and breastfeeding sad.gif my natural size is a 34c/32d but they don't look like it at all when i'm not wearing a bra sad.gif i'm too young to not have nice breasts lol , at least this is how i feel, and if i only get to live once i'm going to do it!!! i cant imagine staying w/ my natural breasts for another 50 years or so lol.... i'm only 5'2 and weigh 110, but i'd really like a full D cup, i had a full D cup when i was going through puberty and they looked good on my small frame...

but i was wondering, if anyone knows that if you get sub-muscular implants, and if you had a decent amount of breast tissue before hand (c cup but a lil saggy) will your breast still fill out nciely, or will the natural breast tissue just sag off the top of the implant and look all crazy-like???? does anyone know what i mean??? lol

^I'm not sure about implants, but maybe what you want is a breast lift (if that's what it's called) since if you're a C and you're just wanting to adjust the shape then maybe that could work better than implants.

I don't think I'll ever get implants but, while it sounds like some guys say they don't like them, I imagine at least half already know a woman whose breasts are implants, and he thinks they're real. Medical advances have come a long way, and they can look natural. It seems like I've read more "My life has changed, I'm so happy" anecdotes about the outcome of getting them, than "I'm sorry I had it done" ones.

hmmmmm, not sure there was netting involved ... he basically relocated my breasts a bit higher up on my chest and used saline implants to plump them out on top.

My implants are sub-muscular, so recovery was certainly painful for awhile .... a lot less painful than childbirth, but more painful than my C-section recovery!

Go have a couple of consultations with surgeons .... tell 'em what you want to achieve and see what they recommend. You might need the same surgery I had (lift + very small implants).

Im just going to vent here. ANY kind of breast size topic theres people that want to go on their rant as if the ONLY reason anyone ever wants to increase their breast size is because of the way society looks at them. Well SCREW society! I want implants to make me feel for feminine, curvy, which I happen to think is sexy and is most important for how confident I feel when I am topless in front of my husband. I dont care if anyone else in the world noticed my bigger breasts because it doesnt matter to me how I look in front of anyone else! So anyone that thinks that this is because of the media or the general "pam anderson" frenzy that SOME people are going for these days can just forget it! Its not any different than wanting to lose a couple pounds or get rid of your acne or all the other thousands of ways people want to better themselves so that THEY feel better. Period

I find it unbelievably annoying when people go on anti-cosmetic surgery rants. Seems a very simple issue to me: if you don't approve of breast implants, by all means don't get them. But don't presume that you can get inside the head of someone who wants them ..... and please, spare us the sermon ..... we can think for ourselves.

I think it's unbelievably annoying when people say they want implants to feel more "feminine" or "sexy" or look "better" & that it has nothing to do with society/media/whatever. Where do they get the idea that bigger breasts are sexier, more feminine, and better? And how is that not insulting to smaller breasted women who have no desire for implants?
That's fine if some women want implants, but don't justify it by degrading smaller breasts.

How on earth does my wanting my breasts to return to their former glory insult you? So what if it does have something to do with the societal norms? Does that make the desire or the feelings any less real? No. It's wonderful that your happy with your breasts. Kudos. Some of us aren't, so we fix it. I fail to see why this should have any impact on your life.
