Hello girls. For years I have said that I was going to get a "boob job", mostly kidding but slightly serious. In elementary school I was the first to develop, but as soon as high school hit I pretty much lost everything I had "developed". I then got pregnant at a young age, and as an avid supporter of breast feeding I breast feed for a year and a half....which reaked havok on my breasts. The father of my child always teased me about my breasts, or lack there of, with areolas that seem like they take over, but at the end of the day says that they are fine and I don't need implants. I have always had body issues but now, at 21 am relatively happy with the way I look, other then stretch marks and saggy, wrinkly, A cup breasts-and this is something that no matter how hard I work, I will never be able to change "naturally". I am now just shy of 21, with an incredible 3 year old. I work part time, and I am doing my undergraduate in Physical Science and hopeing to go to Dental school in a couple of years. Yes, school is expensive on its own, especially when you are in it for 10 years, and so is raising a child. But I am lucky enough to have my school pretty much paid for (lots of scholarships and grants) and my child could have everything he could possibly want-but is it selfish to spend that kind of money on something I really don't need? I've worked extremely hard to be where I am today, and to have the resources to pay for my "new enhancement".
I have researched this topic like crazy, analyzed and dissected every pro and con (I'm a scientist-this is inherently what I was born to do). I had a consultation yesterday with a friend who had her breasts done by the same doctor, and she was very comforting-the doctor was as well, I trust him completely and am very happy with him. I don't have low self esteem, I don-t have problems attracting men- I am a smart girl, top of my faculty, attractive, with a nice figure. However, no one see's my breasts-If I have sex, I keep a bras on. The only way you will see them is if I am 100% completely comfortable with you.
People respect me for getting where I am today, with a child, especially my classmates. Unfortunately, I am the type of person who cares what people think of me-and that is what everyone thinks about me, even strangers. I'm scared that by getting my breasts done, even if I don't tell people, they will notice and they will not respect me-they will stereotype me as your classic stupid, trashy white girl (I'm not saying this to offend anyone, I know people get breasts done for all reasons and I don't stereotype anyone into this-but I know other people do). I don't want to be that girl that everyone thinks had such low self esteem that she had to spend 8k on surgically implanting a foreign object into her and risking her life doing so. Because deep down, I'm not that girl. My breasts were destroyed having a child, I gave my life to my child and I don't regret that. I personally enjoy breasts. I'm not doing it to get attention- I get enough of it as it is. I'm doing it for me, quite honestly I would like to play with them lol. I'm also scared of getting them too big and them looking fake- I just want a normal sized boob that isn't sagging and wrinkling. I'm also scared of the possible side effects-getting sick, losing my memory (I pride myself on my brain). Should I really be concerned about the side effects?
Anyways ladies, I think you get the jest of things and where I am coming from. If anyone could give me some advice, share their experience etc it would be greatly appreciated. I have another consult on monday and pretty much have to decide by then if I want them done in the next little bit.
Should I or Shouldn't I?
