I am seriously considering having breast implants and would love some positive and negative stories.
I have done a little research and am looking at the cosmetic institute in parramatta to do the surgery. Any one had theirs done there?
Also i have been ttc for almost 7 yrs with no luck. The only thing that's stopping me is...what if i get pregnant soon after? will it ruin them? But then i also think that i can't keep my life on hold. What do you ladies think?

Just be aware than any breast surgery can cause problems for breastfeeding. I personally would wait til you're done having kids. Jmo.

A friend of mine had hers done and she was told that she should still be able breastfeed normally.... she's due with her first early next year so time will tell how it goes!

I have implants and absolutely love them. I haven't been pregnant yet but all the women I know who have them had no problem breast feeding. The implants don't affect the milk ducts, at least not when their placed under the muscle.

You could also possibly not be able to breast feed without having surgery... I think if its something you really want than go for it ;-) like you say you can't put your life on hold

If you want them, get them. One of my closest friends has had implants for around 6 years now and she fed 2 bubs with no issue. Everyone's different and as pooks said, there's no guarantee you will be able to ebf anyway, so go for it!

I personally wouldn't until I was finished having children, as pregnancy and breastfeeding (if you would still be able to??) would alter the appearance of them for sure. Completely up to you however!

I probably wouldn't get them before kids as bf, or even just pregnancy, can change your b00bs so much. I'm currently a G (previously an E) and I reckon they are gonna be trashed by the time DS is finished with them.
I've already told DH that I'm getting a reduction and getting them put back where they belong once we've finished having kids.
Totally see your point about not putting life on hold, perhaps in your situation I would go ahead with it.

I got them after several years of telling my boyfriend at the time (now husband) when I get to a size 8... He finally just said do it and enjoy them now and stop waiting for that perfect time. I'm successfully breastfeeding my second bub now, if anything I've had issues with over active letdown and too much supply - so it has had nil effect on my ability to bf. The key is making sure you have them done under the muscle and inserted under the crease of the boob, looks more natural too.
I only needed 4 days recovery when I got them done, but would imagine I wouldn't want to be having them done and run after kids - depends on how long after you have birth and breastfeed for (and how many kids your going for) as to how long this means your going to wait for them. Personally I wanted to enjoy them for as long as possible.
