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
In 2001 I had my implants done saline under the muscle through the nipple I remember it was sooo painful I was in pain for a whole week the cost was $3900. I just decided one day I wanted big boobs and I had the money so why not, I had done no research about the procedure (crazy) and I was not told of the complications, the risks, the horrible pain, or how was the procedure done.
Then in... 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
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'm planning to have my implants removed finally. I feel like I've been through hell already. I had my first set 23 yrs ago. Saline 325cc above the muscle. They were perfect for about 15 yrs. I started developing ripples so as soon as I saved enough money I went for a revision. The doc said I need to switch to silicone and go under the muscle. I did and the ripples became way worse and my... more

My husband and I decided it was the right time to have the corrective... more

I am 43, 5'7", 120 lbs. After having four children and breast feeding I was a 32A. For many years I was ok with my small boobies, but after a divorce, negative feedback from boyfriends and even rude comments from "friends" I decided to get implants when I was 30. I had 400cc saline implants under the muscle. I went from a 32A to a 32D. My husband loves them, I have never liked them. I always... more
