    This is just my two cents so sorry if anyone is offended. I have found generally speaking that it is now the normal thing for girls born in the 90's and onwards to have fake boobs. It seems to be more accepted now (i don't agree with them) but before that they always seemed taboo.. No one had fake boobs in my generation, but 5-10 years later every second girl has them. I don't know whether it is because it seems like the 'normal' thing to do now, are more accessible and affordable (eg going overseas to have them done) or whether it is the 'trend'
    Each to their own but personally i don't agree with them 90% of the time.

    Ditto! I used to have perfect shaped natural Ds pre breastfeeding and would like them back. Don't feel a need to justify why just because I can!

    I am so all over the place with this one.


    I don't like them and would never have them. My b0obs are ruined after 6 kids and huge weight loss and gain. But they are just part of me. Yet the symbolizes so much to me. Yes they may look like golf balls in socks but the fed my kids for over 10 years.

    Other women. Well I have no opinion on. They should do what right for them and what that is none of my dam business.

    If they make them feel good, that's great, go for it.

    For my young girls. I teach them they are he'll of a lot more than a set of b00bs. They are more than there physical looks. That they need to feel comfortable in their own skin. If they need fake bo0bs to feel that, than when are adults they can do that. I would prefer they love the body God gave them but that's not always practical.

    Dd2 will be having plastic surgery in the next few years. Part is medical and part is cosmetic. It was a easy decision for us. She need to be okay with what she will look like after the surgery. The professor asked her about how she felt about the op. She said I am worried it will make me look like a witch. He agreed that he would remove part of her chin and lip to stop that from happening.

    I don't see what the big deal is?
    Each individual is different and children do take a toll on our bodies and some people feel less confident and unhappy with the changes their body has gone through.

    I'm all for breast augmentation if that's what someone wants. Sometimes it's not because they want a bigger bust size but they have changed shape or become saggy over time and they want them back to the pre-baby stage.

    No I don't have fake boobs - but if I am unhappy with mine in the future after finishing having children I would certainly look into this option.

    I guess the big deal is that so many women don't accept their 'post baby' body. That we're teaching future generations of women that after you've had a baby you still need to look just like you did pre-babies in order to still feel attractive.
    Maybe I'm over thinking it, and I do teach my kids to be happy with their bodies the way they are...but it's hard to get them to listen to that message when all they see is women have plastic surgery.
    I worry about the extremes women are going to to have the 'perfect' body. It's all about anti-ageing these days...but only for women. Men can age gracefully (or not so) but women are still expected to be wrinkle free, have no grey hair, perky boobs and a flat tummy in order to be considered attractive.

    But how are they seeing women having plastic surgery? I have a 9 year old girl and she wouldn't have a clue about cosmetic surgery.

    I don't see that many women doing it (maybe I'm not looking hard enough). But honestly unless you are in the position some of these women are in you can't really judge.

    OP by your own admission you are a very slim person. I really think this is something you can't understand (sorry I don't meant to sound condescending). You wouldn't tell an overweight person not to have weight loss surgery would you?

    ETA my mother was large busted and had 4 kids before she was 30 and hated her boobs for her entire life. I have strong memories of her complaining about backaches. I'd have rather she'd had surgery and then enjoyed her following 40 years and not felt self conscious about them.

    I have always been big busted Pre babies and it was then I decided I would get a reduction as they make me uncomfortable, however I held off doing it when younger as I wanted the chance to Breastfeed my children, so when I have it done it wont be anything to do with 'post baby body' but will be something i have always wanted to do, Maybe many people have always had 'issues' pre baby and only decide to do something post baby, it dosnt generally mean people are doing to to try cover up their post baby body...

    You could ask what am I teaching my daughter agreeing to plastic surgery when she was just 11. She won't have until 13 or 14. She doesn't need it to live. It's not medically Needed.

    I hope I am teaching her she beautiful no matter what because true beauty come from what's inside. I am also teaching her that she needs to comfortable in her own skin. I am doing for her mental health just like a woman does it for her mental health. We are blessed the head professor of dental surgery is willing to go the extra mile and do it for her.

    I don't see the difference between a book and a chin and lip job.

    He actual medical needed op is on her jaw.

    I agree @anewme. I remember in the 70s the attitude of "suck it up you're beautiful no matter what" which is fine if you just hate your brown hair but if you have a pointy chin or nose and feel you look like a witch or get teased for your big ears no amount of pep talks really cut it sometimes.
