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.
That's not necessarily true. Maxwell Maltz was a plastic surgeon in the '60s who noticed that trivial surgery could make a massive change in someone's life. He invented and promoted self-image psychology, on the theory that how we see ourselves defines us. He recommended changing our self image rather than changing our bodies. His book, Psycho Cybernetics is still considered a classic self-help book.

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?
I really hope what you wrote was sarcasm.

I'm so excited. I have finally narrowed down which type of implants I will get, as well as, which surgeon I will utilize. In two months, my best friend and I will be heading to Beverly Hills for my surgery w/ Dr. Kim.

I'm hoping to achieve the same look as the woman in the video (with saline implants (which is natural salt water)). I'd love to go with silicone, but safety comes first. FYI: I can't post the link, because her breasts are shown during the examination. If however you are curious, you can view Nikita's video on drkimbeverlyhills youtube page. The video is called "Breast Augmentation Trans-umbilical Approach."

Good for you! Just be prepared for guys to talk to your chest.
Best of luck!

We've talked about it and she regrets getting them.

You may not though, some girls love their fake boobs. I would probably not rush into getting them. Maybe wait a year or two and see how you feel about it then.
I know quite a few people who have had augmentation done. Most I don't know well enough to know if they are happy with them or not. But two are pretty close friends. I am certain both of them are very satisfied with what they've done, and this is quite a few years after the fact. I've known them both before and after. Both were very small before and did NOT overdo the augmentation, so both of their "after" images are very very natural looking. You wouldn't know they'd "had work done".

Some people don't go overboard with it.

I guess my point is, no one can tell you definitively if it's shallow or not, it all depends on you. If it's something you want to do and you can afford it, do it!

Of course, ya know, (in my best Bugs Bunny voice) a thread like this on C-D wouldn't be complete unless someone didn't implore you to show us all the before and after photos!

Nope. As long as you are going with a size that looks natural, and do your research on surgeons and implants, I don't see a thing wrong with it.

Jesus - that procedure looks awful! I would never opt for that. I think she went too large, and honestly I think she looked great before. Just my 2 cents.

For what it's worth, saline implants are very unnatural looking, and feel nothing like natural breasts. Silicone is far and away the best choice, if you want natural looking. All of the old stuff about silicone was disproved - they are perfectly safe. Your choice of course. Good luck.

I'm not sure if you watched the correct video, but Nikita looks fantastic. Prior to the surgery, she looked like a little girl. I'm around the same size, therefore, I know first hand how it feels to go through life not looking like a fully developed woman. She was smart to get the implants.

I do however agree that under most circumstances, saline implants look very unnatural, but if one elects the tear dropped saline implants (like Nikita) the look is more natural, but the feel is not on the level of the silicone implants.

Although silicone gel implants are new and improved, one cannot state that silicone is "perfectly safe," because that's simply untrue. In fact, any bona fide plastic surgeon will state that there are risks involved with silicone. In any event, it's up to the individual who elects to go forward with the surgery to conduct their research and determine which option is best for their body.

I didn't watch the surgery but I agree with ChessieMom that she went too big. She even said in the video that the size was unnaturally large and that as they dropped a bit as she got further out from surgery, they started to look even bigger. I'm in favor of getting the implants if you want them but I think you need to go with a little bit smaller, more natural size.
