Breast implants squeak at high altitudes. Imagine your own personal pair of squeaky toys. like rubber duckies! You'll never get his hands off them now... lol

I have big boobs, it's a family thing. If I were flat in the chest, but still the "curvy" size that I am now, I would consider it possibly, just to even out my proportions.. but I'm not one for making drastic plastic changes to my body to asthetically please society. I would probably just stuff my bras with socks or balls of tissues and continue on my glum little way.

LOL....you crack me up...as usual.
One thing I'd like to point out though.....NOT EVERYONE choses to do that to "please society".
I sure didn't.....I did it because I wanted it, and I was able to, and I knew what my breasts looked like BEFORE and AFTER I got pregnant and breastfed my child.
It sure made me feel better, and didn't give a rats a$$ what other people thought, think....say.
I am feeling good now.......LOL.

I haven't ever had kids, but I will sympatheize with you. My mom suffers from breast cancer, and it is a very high possibility that she will require some extensive cosmetic surgery afterwards as well, ....so please don't take what I said personally.

I couldn't care less if people have implants or not. Everyone has their reasons. If having bad boobs killed my self esteem on a daily basis, I would do what I had to to be happy in my own eyes, and not give a damn about what anyone else said, imo. What you do for you, is best, for your own reasons... and there are reasons aplenty! So good for you if you're for them, good for you if you're happy the way you are... what does it matter what personal choices we make in our lives, as long as it is to better ourselves and our self esteem to lead normal healthy lives?

Mine cost about $5000 in year 2003. I think you need a re-do if there is a rupture or other issue relating to the implant or complications. It's not like you have to change them out every 10 years. I am very happy with my decision and it was the best $$ H and I ever spent.

Holy Smokes ARC 450-500???? woo hoo. Just curious, what size is that?


I'm not that big. I am 5'8" and about 145 lbs and my hips are 38inches and now my breasts measure the same as my hips. I was way out of proportion before surgery due to losing so much fat in my breasts after nursing three children. I wear a D bra but on my frame it looks normal.

go to justbreastimplants.com. They have a wealth of info and a great forum. My BA was a very positive experience and this website completely educated me beforehand.

We as women are so judgemental of one another & I truly think that is the saddest thing. If a women wants to get BA & can afford it whats it to anyone else? How does it affect anyones life that isn't getting the BA? IMO folks often get preoccupied with the choices others often do so b/c they feel a need to justify their own shortcomings.

I don't have them myself, but I have a friend who just got implants. They are really obvious, instead of her breasts naturally sloping she suddenly has two big round things there, it's quite obvious that they are not natural. I can spot those implants on other women, too. Are there implants available that are not so obvious?

I have them, and they look as natural as it can be.
Nobody really believes me, when I tell them, that they are not real.
They are soft, fit my body frame, and are well proportioned.
In the first couple of months, they kind of like sit "high" a bit, but will drop down, settle, on where they should be. (If they are proportioned enough.)
That was at least in my case.
Unless, of course, one is going for that "Pamela Anderson look".
