    No, no, no, no and no!

    I wouldn't want to face the risks of anesthesia (small, but there) and surgery unless it was necessary. The risks might be tiny, but there is still no point at which I would say that my desire for fake b00bs outweighed... anything!

    Plus I'm happy with mine. They're not perfect, and there's loads that could be changed, but they're mine. I never want to look like any cookie cutter definition of what's currently 'perfect'. I don't like the look of fake b00bs either, and neither does DH.

    All round - no benefits, but some risk to everything I hold dear! Not tempting...

    ETA: I also want to be a role model for DD so that she has confidence with her body, and doesn't buy in to cultural fashions about what is currently beautiful. We all have different levels of what we would or wouldn't do, and I know some would say wearing make-up/ dyeing hair (both of which I do) are doing just that. But for me surgery is pretty extreme.

    No!
    I like my boobs.
    (I use to like them more pre-kids, but they are still alright).
    I don't like surgery.
    I wouldn't want to risk losing sensitivity.
    DP would find it "creepy".

    A tummy tuck , however...

    No, as much as there is room for improvement I am too squeamish. The thought of the anesthetic, the operation itself, then the foreign object under my skin makes me anxious just thinking about it.

    I had to have the implanon implant out after a week or two because it was too much for me LOL

    Nope but it's easy for me to say that as i have nice boobs already. They are small but i like them the size they are and they don't sag - no reason to get a boob job.
    If they were extremely saggy i would consider a boob lift but i'm not sure i could ever have implants - the thought of two foreign objects stuck in my chest scares me too much. I guess i would need to be in the situation to know how i would feel.
    I am very lucky my boobs are in decent shape. If it was a tummy tuck on offer though - i'd be jumping at the chance

    Up until 12 months ago I would have said HELL NO.

    Then my body and sense of self changed.

    I went from being the freak show on the outside to the freak show that only dh and I could see (well the worse of it only we can see). I has been liberating and soul destroying at the same time. I get upset if dh doesn't touch me and i get upset when he does.

    So yeah if I could get them fixed (after I am finished breastfeeding this my last bub) and have my legs and tummy fixed I would. My legs and tummy are the worst and the excess skin actually cause pain It's so bad that when I walk with out tight clothes on you can hear the loose skin hit each other with a loud slap.
    I really need to lose more weight but I am frighten to how much worse it is going to get.

    Nope. I'm immensely proud of my b00bies for nourishing and comforting my babies and love them more now than I did pre kids. They're a lot more womanly.

    When DS1 self weaned at 2 years 9 months they went saggy when the milk dried up... Then about a month later filled out back to normal I'm now feeding DS2 and planning on a couple more kids so they'll be busy for a while yet. Will love them however they look
