When I was 18 I decided to get implants. And at the time it felt like the right thing to do. Many of my friends had implants, and I was in college and bartended on the weekends, so having fake boobs was completely normal. My parents weren't very happy with my decision, and they tried to tell me to wait and really think about what I was doing (but when you're 18, that type of advice goes in one... more

I have my first consult May 8th.
I'm still undecided. In my head I'm doing this, and I'm doing this tomorrow... But then I'm scared of so many things. I don't want pain, I don't want to be put under, what will I look like after, will my husband still find me attractive, will I feel better about myself, most importantly will my health improve.
I was 18 years old, I saved my own money and went... more
I am 41 and will be 42 this year. I had small breast that did not even fit an A-cup. At 21 I had saline implants put in under the muscle. I was so happy to be voluptuous and to look so good in and out of clothes... I have always loved full, shapely breasts since I was a little girl and was disheartened to find that mine never grew past the prepubescent stage. After I had a child at age 24... more
I decided to have implants in 2007. After nursing 2 children I felt my breasts could be a little fuller on the top. I went from a b cup to a full c after surgery. Against the advice of friends and family I decided to have my breast augmented. The implants were placed under the arm pit so I wouldn't have any visible scars but the post op pain was very bad. Actually, I've been in pain ever... more
Hi, I'm 41 year old with 2 kids. I used to work in Miami when I got married and wanted to look as good as everyone else. I was a 34 C and wanted to "fill" it up. So I got implants, but the doctor advised getting larger ones so I wouldn't need a lift. I ended up with 675 saline under the muscle. At that time I was around 120 lbs, 5'7 (in 2001). I loved them but I looked ridiculous. After... more
It has been 10 years since i got my breast implants, i used to be 32 AA maybe even smaller because i did not really needed a bra at all.

I'm so glad to be able to hear all your brave and successful stories. I'm hoping to be one of them myself. :-)
I'm so thankful to be able to not only get through this with your help, but be able to share my story as well and to maybe help someone else with their decision.
Here's my story:
I was 30 when I felt the need to have implants. I never had a boob hangup so to speak,... more
Hello, I had saline 360cc implants for about a year, but never really felt comfortable with them. Afterall, it is a foreign body, and doesnt belong to your body. It limited my daily activities, sleeping positions, sports I could participate in, etc. To cut the long story short, I didnt feel like myself, and decided to go back to the good old small A-B cup. I was freaking out at first, as I... more
I am 5'2" and I weigh 101 pounds. I was a very tiny A cup and thought I could have the world if I could just fill a shirt. I thought I would feel so much better about myself if my boobs were bigger. Little did I know that it wasn't bigger boobs I needed to feel sexy and pretty, but a smaller shirt. Ladies...don't let your boob size get you confused with your shirt size. You are beautiful just... more
I am 36 years old and had a breast augmentation about 9 years ago. I had just had a child and was not planning for any more children at the time. I was probably a good size B at the time. My chest had changed a bit, but looking back now they were still very perky and beautiful. I thought that I wanted to go to a size D. I was 120 pounds at the time at 5 feet 5 inches. I was surrounded by... more
