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.
Why do you call them plastic?


the OP said she was petite.
now that i think about it,big boobs might make her look matronly.

I'm just wondering if others think it's shallow to undergo breast augmentation?
You're stepping in a minefield starting a thread about plastic surgery on your breasts. I know; I started a thread about breast reduction surgery a couple of months ago, and a mod ended having to delete a lot of the stupid posts. So be prepared for a litany of responses from guys who say you should/should not have the surgery because the way your boobs look is all about what THEY want Anyway, it is not shallow to want to improve your appearance, IMO. Your appearance is directly tied to your self esteem, and people will do many things to help themselves feel better. Even if it is shallow, so what? It's your money and your decision.

Just be aware that getting a boob job will not solve your problems or change you as a person. It will only change the way your breasts look. Be sure you choose a plastic surgeon who has done many of these procedures and look at his/her portfolio to see real life results from his/her patients before choosing that doctor. Good luck with your decision.

we need disclaimers on posts now,,

are and have you been a female all your life??

were you born with a set of gonads but want to be a woman?

are you a transgender not sure which way the wind blows??


if you are 100% female with no hyphens, stay where you are
confidence doesn't come from bra size

look at the upside....
less back issues.,,, you can sleep on your stomach, babies don't look at you like an all you can suckle buffet

The fact that you're so concerned about whether your family will approve is a potential sign of low confidence or low self-esteem. Look into that first, so that you can answer your own question about whether you should have the procedure.

A c-cup is huge for a petite person. I long for the days when I was barely a B.

I guess you could always take them out later.

If you are generally happy with yourself and your appearance except for this, and it's something you've researched and can afford, then go for it. If you are overall unhappy, this is not going to fix that. Someone mentioned it's the same as ear piercing - I don't agree with that, but I'd say maybe cosmetic orthodontia or other cosmetic dentistry. Someone may be unhappy with their smile and know that changing that one thing will make them so much happier with their appearance. There is absolutely nothing wrong with wanting to look good, and sometimes, that can take medical intervention. Just don't go too large, as it will look fake and not proportional.


And either way, your worth as a woman doesn't change. You aren't better for having natural breasts if you aren't happy with your own body.

I have been thinking about this issue for quite awhile. After I graduated from college and landed my first professional job, I was pretty much on my own financially, but somehow, my mother still managed to take control over the other elements of my life. She has a very strong personality and I'm not one for conflict, so over the years, I've let her pretty much run my life.

I'm now however at the stage where I'm living my life, by my own terms. I'm not harming anyone or doing anything crazy. I simply want to do this for myself. I realize that having breast implants won't make me a different person and that's a good thing. I like being me, but I simply want to feel more womanly and confident about my body.

Some petite women elect for larger breasts (beyond a full c-cup) and still look good with it.

If you have to try and convince yourself this much how "good" you are going to look it appears you do not really know what you want.
The pictures you are posting are not YOU and YOU have no idea how YOU are going to look.
You are also scared of rejection from your family if you get this done.

I still strongly suggest you seek a professional therapist before you have any sort of body altering surgery.

If you choose not to so be it, your body, your choice, your money.
