Have any of you had breast augmentation surgery? If so, which ones(implants) did you choose and how are you satisfied? The reason why I ask is because I heard that a lot of people say they become firmer over time and so on. Thank you.

I haven't had any surgery but I have seen some results. If you go to any nude resorts you will see many, many implants. They look very hard and unnatural(most of the time because the women went much larger than their original size). The women always look good with their clothes on but with them off it just doesn't look right. The best ones seem to be ones that aren't freakishly large.

I've also met some women don't like to have their "new boobs" toached b/c it doesn't feel good. Sorry that would stop me dead in my tracks from getting that done.

I've also heard that the surgery is not a one time deal. I don't know much about it but I read an article that said something about getting them checked and or re-done every so often. Doesn't sound like fun.

Also if you ever consider doing this make sure you see "real" examples. They are especially ugly when the woman is leaning over and you see the sacks and wrinkles from the implants. Don't believe me watch playboy and check it out when they lean over.

I had my boobs done in 2000, and the only regret is, NOT having it done any sooner!
No, they DON'T get firm over time, but rather the opposite, since the skin accommodates the implants, and somewhat stretches.
Mine look pretty real...and even if you would see me naked, you would NOT be able to tell at ALL!
Sorry, can't post a picture......CD is PG ....I got reminded of .....lol.

I've had BA too and no, they do not get firmer over time. I have silicone and in fact you cannot tell the difference between the implant and my breast tissue - they are very natural. I got 450/500 cc and look very natural and not overdone. I went to a PS who specializes in "the natural look" and am very happy. Like the other poster said, my only regret is not having it done sooner. I lost most breast tissue after pg/nursing and it has made a world of difference in my appearance and confidence.

MovingbacktoPA - I'm sure you'll get alot of requests for that pic via DM!! http://i221.photobucket.com/albums/d... (broken link)


Holy Smokes ARC 450-500???? woo hoo. Just curious, what size is that? I just wondering cuz my friend got 350 cc's and she looks HUGE, she is like a very very large C, sometimes wears a D. She's about 5'7" so it does fit her frame though.

And to answer the OP, my best friend had it done and it looks good. She had complications with the surgery and had to have them redone 3 days later, but hasn't had any problems since then and its been over 5 years ~ and they are soft ~ so she says, I haven't felt them

It's not something I'd ever consider doing. There's no attraction there for me. I'm flat, yes, but at least I can run without breaking my back.

That, and it's just such a serious operation for such a trivial issue. So many complications when you can just pad your bra.

Personally, I don't think there's anything wrong with being flat. I like the look. Women with artificial breasts always look kinda strange and doll like to me.

I know a woman who had her breasts made into a double D. She basically had a book shelf coming out of her chest. She did it to get attention from men. So sad, because clearly she thought she had nothing else of value to offer. She would drink and sleep with men who were involved with other women. One day she called me crying on the phone. I don't know what's become of her, but it was very sad.

I appreciate all of your posts. I would like to ask the girls who had them - how much they cost? O, and younglisa, I've heard that usually women "change" them every 10 years or so. Usually. I don't know if that is true or not.

I ended up paying $5000 in the year 2000.
The manufacturer of them implants gives a "warranty" against any kind of defects (It's outlined in an agreement you have to sign), which is valid for 10 years.
No, you DON'T have to change them, if there's nothing wrong with them.....However, you CAN change them anytime you feel like.
I have met girls, which implants ruptured after a very short period of time.
And, on the other hand have met ladies, having implants in already for 15 years or more!

Another thing......a pp states that she likes herself they way she is.
Well, kudos to her, really.
But, in the same token shouldn't "feel bad" for other people having it done.....
Personal preference, personal choice....to each their own!
The bra padding thing get's old....and only goes so far.......
I would ALSO like to point out, that cancer victims get breast re-construction done, with silicone implants being used in the re-construction process, most having BOTH breasts done in the process to make them less obvious.
I hope, those breast cancer survivors having that done, won't look to much "doll like"........

What I am trying to say here is, implants might have been done "just because", but also to restore ones body.
Don't judge...it is what it is.......because you'll never know!
