What are the reasons why some people hate breast implants so much? Is it because some go too large and it's not proportionate to their body. Do some get mad because they can't afford to get implants and are jealous of some women that do.

They don't look or feel as good as the real thing.

This ^^^

They may look good all covered up in clothes and styled, but where it counts - naked and in bed, they just are not good. Now, Ive never seen or touched any myself, but I've seen some videos of them and they look terrible naked. TERRIBLE!!! And it doesnt depend on the size either. That wrinkly skin look or seam is just awful looking. Small and real are much much much much preferable to fake of any size - when naked.

Unless the woman has flippity floppity flat saggy hanging boobs that look like knee high tube socks with a golf ball in them, there really isnt any purpose for her getting fake ones.

I find that breast implants just look very painful to me. They gross me out. When I see a pair I just picture the poor lady knocked out on drugs getting cut open and these silicone/saline bags stuffed into her. Then the recovery afterwards, gross. They look like stretched out skin pulled over the bags.

Also I believe they have to be done +/- every 10 years. I wonder why anyone would want to go under the knife for cosmetic purposes and not for a life threatening situation.

Same reason most women would prefer a standard sized "man's apparel" to any plastic *****.

Fake and emotionless.

Meh, the boobs jobs I've seen look pretty good.

Hell, I never knew Kourtney Kardashian had breast implants until I read about it. Her tiddies look good.

Please note: The thoughts in this post apply to women who had normal, healthy breasts before implants. It is not a commentary on women who get implants due to deformity or other medical circumstances.

Why do some people hate breast implants? The reasons are endless.

I think the main point is that the pendulum is swinging back, away from fake toward natural. Natural is now a novelty, and humans are drawn to novelty. Basically, implants have been overdone. We're sick of them.

I actually think the jealousy factor is overstated and overestimated. I don't believe many women look at other women with implants and get mad because they wish they could afford some. I think the sentiment goes more along the lines of "really? you had to get those boobs? as if that's what we're supposed to look like? as if natural breasts are not enough? not acceptable?" When a woman just gets implants to have a bigger set, and her original pair was not deformed, but perfectly normal, it's almost an insult to women as a whole. It helps to further normalize a beauty ideal only achievable through surgery. It helps to foster the idea that beauty costs a lot of money. It's consumerism at its sickest - human beings paying to have strangers knock them out, slice them open, and insert foreign objects into their bodies for the sake of... "beauty". I'm telling you, the archeologists of the future are going to think our society was pretty whacked when they dig up these skeletons with giant sacks attached to the rib cages.

On to another reason people don't dig implants: they usually look grotesque because of who is getting them. Implants would really give the best effect for someone who had a nice layer of softness / padding / fat on them. The implants would look... real-ish. But people with a nice layer of fat are the least likely to "need" implants! (Breasts are mostly fat after all.) Our culture tells women "you must be skinny!" but for most women, once they get "skinny enough" their boobs go away along with the rest of the fat. Our culture then tells women "you must have big boobs!" For most women it's either / or. Either you can be super skinny with no boobs or you can carry a little extra weight and have boobs. But culture says neither of those options is acceptable. You have to be skinny with big boobs, (so all the gyms, diet companies, and surgeons can be filthy rich.) But what we get are these emaciated women, with these big, round volley balls stuck on their chests and it just looks wrong.

I think many people associate negative personality / character traits with fake boob women. Above average vanity and a misguided sense of self worth to name a couple. If bigger boobs make you feel better about yourself.. what does that say about you? Where did you get the idea that your real breasts were "wrong"? Women who get implants risk their health for beauty. I say this about cell phones too - we don't have enough generations of scientific data to know what the health risks and implications will be. Why be a guinea pig? Like it or not, we do judge others based on how they spend their time and money. Implants have to be re-done every 10-15 years or so. All of that money and recovery time could arguably be better spent. Just sayin'. Additionally, I believe many people instinctively / intuitively know that women who get breast implants are more likely to be mentally unbalanced. The suicide rate among women with implants is 3 times higher than among women without implants. Women with implants have triple the likelihood of death by drugs and alcohol compared with the general population. Here are some articles about the link between psychiatric issues and breast augmentation:

Breast implants, like myspace, silly bandz, or low rise jeans, are a fad. The look is becoming lame and dated. We are moving on. To butts apparently. But anyway the real point is: it's one thing to take part in a fad by signing up for a web page, or buying some cheap bracelets, but when you are literally having surgery to participate in a fleeting trend... yikes. Boobs, like pretty much everything else, go through fads and trends. Think about the preferred look in the flapper era vs. the 1950s vs. the 2000s! Who knows what will be in style next. It does appear that big round implants have been played out though. Maybe all the geniuses out there who got them can have them removed and re-implanted into their butt cheeks now. Gotta keep up with the times..
