Perhaps we have real life experience with those who have had breast enlargement and reduction and we know from that real life experience that the person behind those new bigger breast is the same person who was behind those smaller breast before surgery.

If it takes someone to have surgery, implant artificial products into their bodies, go through all the pain and recovery time to "make themselves feel better". There is much more going on than small breasts.
What you've been saying is just 1 possibility. You've heard your stories and there are stories of people feeling the opposite after having things done. It doesn't make your opinion or story any more likely for the OP.

My opinion, if the OP did her homework and has the desire & means, she will never know until she tries. We have one life to live and not ever knowing and always wondering is not a good position to be in either.

I think the picture posted makes her look great. Hopefully the doctor does good reputable work.

It doesn't make any less likely either though does it?

Well that's obvious, so I don't know why you keep harping on it even after you've already said it. You go on to say there are likely deeper issues. Sometimes, people just want what they want and that simply makes them happy.

you say you want them for yourself and not for other people, but the reasons you give are about other people. Maybe you should reexamine why you want them.

OP, do what makes YOU happy!

I am petite. 5'2" and a 34D naturally. I am proportionate. I run, lift heavy weights, etc., so I am pretty firm and fit. I spend a lot of time at the beach and honestly...i think I would have it done if I would have needed to.

I have had several friends who have had it done. One asked me to go to her consult because she wanted her surgeon to see what she wanted. She wanted hers to look like mine lol.

Fair enough. I should have been more clear. Breast augmentation for aesthetics is just as shallow as ear piercing for aesthetics. If there's a medical reason for breast augmentation, surely it's not shallow.

Do you have any idea how difficult, and EXPENSIVE, is to buy 32DD bras, let alone dresses that don't fit because of your boobs?
why does that matter when the OP says that she wants C cups?

I can type 32dd bras into google and see dozens of them and they are no more expensive then smaller sizes.

I find myself thinking about breast augmentation a lot. I believe it would make me happier and more confident, but oddly, I feel bad about even considering this, given the fact that my family frowns upon breast augmentation and other types of plastic surgery. I can't help but to think about all of the starving children in the world, or the people without proper sanitation, housing, etc., but at the end of the day, I know what I want and I have the resources to afford the surgery.

I'm just feeling a bit down, because I know that my family doesn't approve. Even though I'm completely independent and reside in a different state, I still care about their opinion. I don't want to feel ashamed or embarrassed. I have such respect for women who do whatever makes them happy. I wish that I could follow a similar path.

I'm just wondering if others think it's shallow to undergo breast augmentation?
Do it and do not tell anyone about it because it none of theirs business breast augmentation is a personal
decision that only you can make.

I don't know. It's surgery and there are lot's of those that don't turn out well. They require maintenance most of the time too so plan on additional surgeries down the road when you may not be up for it.

Unless there is something abnormal about them I wouldn't cut into a healthy body and put something fake in there. Believe me, I UNDERSTAND being fixated on a certain thing about yourself and seeing surgery as a way to make everything great. I did something myself but later on in life I had to start fixating on the problems it caused. I can only really deal with it by not looking at myself too closely, avoiding mirrors, etc. I mean I groom myself, I look at myself enough to know I'm presentable and whatnot. But I no longer preen or stare or look for the bad or the good. That kind of obsession with self is not healthy.
