Do it...


The bigger boobs might translate into a better life overall.

You might be able to catch more men's eyes with them,and one could be really rich.
You might get better jobs offers,more people being nice to you,etc.

You think Pam Anderson would have been as popular as she is with B cups?

No more shallow than wearing make-up. Stylish clothes, and fixing your hair.

Many people don't care how they look. But just because others do, I don't think it's a crime.

If you want to to such, and can afford it, then go for it. Sometimes changes to your appearance can be to make you feel better personally. I don't think you're shallow. You just want to be able to look in the mirror and be confident and happy with what you see. That's normal. I don't think you sound like a narcissist. Some people experiment with their looks and it takes surgery or some tries before they get to a good point. Some weren't blessed to get the automatic hot looks.

Look at this lady.

A great change, and I am sure she's very happy with herself now and comfortable, and I am happy for her. Sure it took a big step. But it's done.

Me, I may have some procedures done later, because I am not happy about my body as it is. But good surgery costs money, which I don't have to spend on it currently.

I was going to have surgery on my eye. But when I went to get tested and evaluated, the risks were just really great for the vanity aspect of things. Possible blindness, if not double vision, infection, and my eyesight is bad enough. If it was just one eye, I could have risked it. But they need to actually do surgery on both of them. I can't catch a break.

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?
If you are going to feel that way, what about your TV, your computer, your home? Do you live like a monk? .....in one room with nothing but a bed and a dresser?....sending all of your extra money out to help the less fortunate?

Shouldn't all of us feel guilty about the money we spend just on entertainment, mainly television, when someone, somewhere, is starving?

with that kind of thinking.

Personally, I wouldn't worry about the money or what my family wanted.

I would worry that I wouldn't be happy with them afterward, the surgery itself and later surgeries required for maintenance.......the health risks involved.

The pros.....appearance and better self esteem {maybe}, versus the risks involved are the only things you should allow to influence your decision.

I'm a 71 year old guy that happens to prefer natural breasts on a woman. Small or large it makes no difference to me. But I also understand why a woman would want to change her size, up or down. As someone has already stated, make sure you are getting a top notch job. My ex got a botched job in 1985-6 and has regretted it. Good luck.

Its become the norm now when a few years back it was only celebs who had it done... my husband was in a private hospital for a leg operation six years ago and two girls walked into the waiting room , clearly friends who must have had theirs done together and were back for a checkup.. their boobs look like they were up to their chins almost.. and stuck out like Barbie dolls.. it has too many risks and would never dream of having it done, not even when I was young... What I would have loved it not to have needed glasses when I was very young and would like to have had fixed if possible. but not now..

I'm no expert, but IIRC they look that way right after the procedure.

I am a die-hard feminist and I believe feminism is about choice. You should be able to do what you want with your body and nobody has a right to say a darn thing about it!

Personally, and ultimately, yes, I think it is.
But a person has to deal with their own self esteem issues the way they see fit.

I think it's unfortunate that some women look like sticks with watermelons or soccer balls for breasts. But that's what they think will make them happy, so it's their business. The person may be a perfectly proportional size and want to go so large it's clearly -- to any objective observer -- too big for her frame. But even if that not the case, why does a person need to be enlarged at all. Well, there's always a WHY, be a why, behind a why. Ultimately the person doesn't think they're just fine the way they are. That is what's sad.

I stated an opinion, added to said opinion and was done.

What part of what I have already stated are you not understanding?
YOU are the one who keeps targeting me so whatever your issue is get past it already, it is tiresome.

She wants plastic boobs I don't care, won't affect my life, my bank account or my body.
