    My friends think i am stupid for wanting a breast enhancement, what are your views on this subject?

      I have only one question.

      Why would you want to change your basic structure of your outside appearance?

      You really don't have to answer the question above, because I already know the answer. The question was for you, to answer to yourself, so you can remove the limitational view you have placed on yourself.

      It is important you accept who you are, as you are. It's directly against your own nature, for you to alter your appearance, because you don't like something. Altering your body isn't going to make you a complete person, because you yourself, will know that your breast are enhanced and not natural.

      Should you follow through on your actions or want, with regards to your breasts, then I'm willing to go out on a limb and say, "I don't approve!", because you've obviously have many issues with yourself and you're running away from the true problem. Your mind-set, your conscience about your true being is or will have become suppressed.

      This doesn't nothing but damage. I'm not trying to offend, but rather to get you to accept yourself the way you are and move on.

      Hope I helped.

      I think it would be a dumb move.  What are you trying to attract with largers breasts?  Can you trust the reasons another person would be attracted to you because of them?  Is the attention something you need so badly that you would put your body through this trauma?  The health risks alone are not worth it.

      media, if you are young and considering having a family, I would suggest you do lots of research before deciding anything, as pregnancy and nursing really affect a woman's body. I wore an F while nursing my last baby, though am naturally an A.

      If you are older, and simply want to put some shape back into them, I would say listen closely to those who are closest to you.

      what do YOu think?

      it doesn't really matter what your friends think, or people on this site. do whatever makes you happy. me, i wouldn't do it; just because i wouldn't want artificial things inside my body, but that's just me. if you really feel you need it and if you feel you can live with implants, and you have researched it all very carefully and still want to, it doesn't much matter what anyone else feels about it.

      If you are a man, don't do it.
      If you are a woman, don't do it.
      If you are stupid, go for it .

    Personally, I'm a big supporter of breasts! Real or fake, big or small, I like em all! You should do whatever makes you happy!
    Whatever you do, please be sure to show me when they're done! Good luck!

    I say go for it!  Just pay the extra money and go to a good doctor.  You'd be amazed what a difference a couple extra thousand dollars can do.  It's the difference between a porn star and a movie star.

    I wouldn't say I thought someone who wanted enhancement is "stupid", but I'm not a fan of anyone getting that kind of thing done.  What's "in fashion" changes.   In the late 60's/early 70's being flat-chested was fashionable and therefore considered, "desirable".  In the era of the painter, Rubens, being overall chunky was fashionable.  If nothing else, there's always the chance that being small will come back into fashion, and we'll have a world full women who regret surgery.

    Fashion trends aside, I don't think it's great that so many women today seem to think breast size makes that much of a difference between how beautiful they are.  I'm a fan of making the most of whatever it is you are/have looks-wise, and then taking the "I-am-what-I-am" approach.  Every woman (who hasn't had to have one or both of them removed, which is always something to think about too) has breasts of one size or another.  They're body parts, and they're not all that unique.  Pretty hair, a pretty face, an overall fit build, pretty arms, legs, ankles, etc. are really the things that contribute to how attractive a woman is.  Inner beauty kicks in too.  I just don't like to think that so many women today consider the size of breasts to make that much of a difference in their overall beauty or appeal.  (A lot of people have considered someone like Cher beautiful, sexy, and glamorous; and she has a "quirky" face and very little "up top".)  If someone loves you they'll love you for whatever you are or have.  The other thing is it if the idea is to try to attract attention with bigger body parts?  Isn't it better to be noticed for something more unique than that?  (I just hate to know so many women are having surgery, particularly on an area that is generally at "common risk" of getting cancer, because they think it will make them better looking.)

    You need to make sure you are doing it for the right reasons.

    If it is something you truly want then I say go for it.  Really people can have an opinion but really thats all it is is an opinion.

    Just be safe if you do go through with it.

    1. Lisa HW profile image83
      Lisa HWposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      but what are the "right" reasons?  I can't think of any I'd call "right".  Reduction surgery, on the other hand, does have a "right reason" (discomfort, back pain).

        Maybe it would help her feel better about her self.  Maybe she just wants them.  I just mean dont get them because someone is asking you to or something like that.

        Im trying to write this with out being a stereo typical guy because Im thinking that if she wants to then know one should tell her any different.

          You're being a very nice person, but she asked for opinions here.  I have no idea how old she is, but (regardless of her age) if it were my daughter I'd hope someone offered the "arguments" on the other side of having surgery.

          I don't think what anyone on here says (me included) will/should have any impact on what the OP does, but I do think decisions like this should be made on considering all the facts.  I think one fact is if you can't feel good about yourself because of the size of your "top" you're being pretty short-sighted about who you are, as a person, or whether you can be beautiful or not.  If it's "just something you'd like to have", I don't think that's a great reason for surgery either.  I think it's better for people to focus on what they do have.  They either have lots of other features find appealing, or none (in which case, surgery isn't going to do much).  To me, if someone has something like a nose that absolutely ruins their face (by anyone's standards), I can see changing it.  I just don't think size of someone's "top" is ever the thing that makes her either attractive or unattractive.

          My "Women's Movement Era" thinking is that women who have self-esteem problems should cover up their chest, look at everything else from head to toe and ask if they like what they see.  If they don't then I don't think a bigger chest will help (and they should work first on all the other stuff they don't like).  If they do then I just think they should have a healthy attitude about being smaller on top, wear underwiring if they think it helps, and keep in mind that some people actually think smaller is more attractive. Most of us have a thing or two we don't like looks-wise. It's not such a bad thing to have imperfections, especially when sometimes those imperfections aren't even something a lot of other people would see as much of a problem.

    media, if you want bigger breasts think long and hard about why and if you're going to go through with it, make sure that they're not out of proportion to your frame. 

    One of my friends got breast implants because she has small breasts and had always wanted larger.  She got them about two years after her divorce.  She basically wanted to start out fresh and one of the ways she chose to do that was to have breast implants.  She's very happy and it was the right decision for her.

    To each their own, I would ONLY enhance mine if they can take the fat from lets say my thighs, and insert it into my breast. I would Never put any foreign material in my body the risks are far too great. However for any surgery researh, research, research check credentials, talk to prior patients if you can AND get a second opinion!

    Breast size doesn't matter to me. It is a serious operation and there is risk involved. Since it is elective, one has to consider it carefully. As I said, I am a big fan of breasts, but I love em all, all shapes, all sizes!

    Mediageek, could I send you some of mine? Oh, I wish it were that simple. I went to a talk about breast reduction surgery and was listening attentively until I heard: "Then they cut off the nipples, re-position them, and sew them back on." I don't know what was said after that because I left immediately!

    prettydarkhorse, (I'm reluctant to add yet more words on this thread, but...)   Very funny.  lol  In reality, though, people like ballerinas and models are often slender and without a lot "up top".  Some of the most feminine, delicate-looking, women I know are those who are just naturally small-built and slender (small frame, narrow shoulders, etc.).  No, they're not "bombshells", but I don't like this new thing in society where so many people think it's better to be a "bombshell" than to "feminine, delicate, and graceful" looking.  smile  I don't know... maybe it's just me...but I equate being smaller on top with being youthful looking, and being bigger with being either middle-aged or older, having a lot of kids, or having a weight problem.  I just think young, slender, women should be happier with what they are/have; because a whole lot of heavier and/or more matronly-looking women would love to be like them.   smile
