    I think most people have always wanted to look good. I have pretty much zero bust and would love to be bigger but don't want to go through surgery.
    I don't personally know anyone who has had them.

    Yes, my mom's are under the muscle. They are also saline, not silicone, which I think 'settles' more?

    I actually didn't know my mom had her breasts done until I was a teenager and my sister told me. It wasn't a secret, she had them done when I was about 6 years old, I just didn't remember her going through it and it wasn't a topic of conversation. I don't think her having fake boobs has given me unrealistic expectations about breasts at all, I think mine are quite nice (a small B), especially right now while breastfeeding. But, if when I'm finished with kids they look like deflated balloons and I want to give them a little 'reshape,' more power to me.

    This argument can extend to so much. Should I not do crunches to get a flat tummy? Wear makeup? Highlight my hair? Anything that makes me feel attractive because it may send the wrong signal to a daughter?

    ........don't know where that 'crunches' comment came from......I've never had a flat tummy!

    It's a minefield isn't it? I want to raise my daughter to be a strong woman that loves who she is. But I do all those things. Does dying my hair and going to the gym send signals I'm a hypocrite that doesn't feel good enough myself?

    I have the breast cancer gene. My mum was 7 years older than I am now when she died. I'm not having any more children so breastfeeding isn't an issue, next year I'm planning to have a double mastectomy and reconstruction. I'm waiting until DD is settled into the second school term of pre-school so I can take some time off and recover properly.

    I'm actually looking forward to having them a little more perky! I'm currently a DD and will go down slightly, DD's in the plastic surgery world are enormous!

    Sorry OP - a little of track, but there are other reasons that people have implants rather than just cosmetic. Peace out!

    @Hulahoop, my MIL is having her boobs done for similar reason too. She had a mastectomy for breast ca early on in the year and come March will have the other breast removed and both reconstructed with implants. I think she's going to go a bit bigger than what she is currently because as she says, for the first time in her life she wants boobs (she's quite small). Good on her for it too. I'd rather the stigma (if there is one) about having fake boobs than being lopsided any day. Despite how realistic the prosthetics can be, they're just never quite right.

    Yes of course there are other reasons. I am specifically talking about women who have breast augmentation because they want 'bigger boobs.' Not due to back pain or medical reasons such as yours.And for those who ask how I know...well once you've seen a whole heap of them you start to be able to pick them out pretty easily. It wasn't something I could have picked out 5 years ago, but now I can quite easily. Most of the women I know who have them done get them done under the muscle, and their recovery time is long and slow until full recovery (12 months for some things). I have had one of the women I know say if she had known how they would feel and how hard the recovery would be she would never have done it. That's concerning because surely surgeons should be telling women all of this? And you're right @HollyGolightly81...it can extend so much. I guess for me it comes down to whether I'm comfortable with my reasons and happy with the explanations I give my kids. Because they're so common here I do wonder what impact it will have on my kids. I don't really care what others do, my only concern is how it will effect how my kids see beauty. I would be pretty upset if my daughter's got boob jobs simply so they could have bigger boobs.

    The person that will have the most influence on how your dds see beauty is you. It starts before they can talk. How do you talk about beauty? Is it in form of a body image or is it about someone spirit?


    I know this going to sound stupid but for me it's a real truth.

    I have 3 dds a 20 yr a 13 yes and 10 yrs. At this stage there are so many more body issues and health concerns to be watchful over than if the want bigger b00bs.

    Did you know that labiaplasty is becoming much more common than b00b jobs.

    But if you can "pick out" fake b00bs, how do you know the reason behind them? I get what you're saying about body image but unless you're in bikinis, why can't it just be either great genetics or a great bra? Kids wouldn't think much past that I don't believe, unless they have been introduced to the surgery concept.

    So if for example you had a daughter who had b00bs she was unhappy with for whatever reason, and that 'they looked different than they should' because the 'norm' is to have implants why not just explain to her that they're fake and they have had surgery to make them look like that? (And a real generalisation there because no two would look alike anyway). If this fictitious daughter was quite flat chested wouldn't it be easier to explain this? That you can change just about anything with surgery, it may make the person happier/feel better about themselves, but it doesn't necessarily follow that you're a better person or more attractive to others?

    For whats it worth I will put my two cents in....I dont think anyone should judge until they have walked a mile in someones shoes. There are all different reasons why some one may choose breast augmentation. I had mine done 9 years ago and it was the best thing I ever did. I have never regreted my decision. I didnt do it out of vein or beauty but for personal reasons. I think women these days just need to stop being so judgemental.
