QOTW- BA March 23

Question: BA stereotypes, what did you believe? What changed what you thought about breast surgery?

I was under the impression that women only had one surgery (with the exception of necessary corrective surgeries of course), but after reading this forum, I realized that is not the case. It surprises me that some women are willing to pay and put themselves through multiple surgeries. Fingers crossed I'm happy with my post op size because I wouldn't want to do it again out of boobie greed.

I used to somewhat judge other people on how they could put themselves through a painful surgery just to achieve bigger boobs. Oh my, how I have learned. I havent had my surgery yet, but I definitely understand now. Until you are put in the position of being truly unhappy with yourself, whatever the reason (my reason being deflated & saggy after 2 kids) you should never judge someone. I never thought I'd even consider a ba, but after my appearance changed drastically, Iam ready and willing!

Mine wasn't directed at BA in general, but more at my mother wanting a BA. When I was in high school, she started researching BA for herself. She tried to be discreet, but I found out eventually. I gave her a really hard time about it. She is probably about a 30A/B. I thought it was absurd that a woman of her age (40s at the time) would want or get a BA. I thought it was stupid for anyone who wasn't a younger 18-30 girl to get one. Like, your ship has sailed, you're married, you have kids, you need to just accept what you have and get over it.

This was at a time when I was 1) very selfish and 2) a size 4 with a 28/30DD/DDD naturally and 3) very confident with my body and looks. I didn't understand her feelings at all and I never tried to. She hasn't been able to get a BA due to finances.

Cut to me losing all the volume in my breasts after two children, and I completely understood where she came from.

When I was younger, even in my 20's I didn't understand why women would do a BA I just thought for a guy... LOL, might have been a MAN hater. I love one now I see now that it's mainly for US Ladies to enjoy ourselves as best as we can how we can. Amazing how eyes open as you age.

When I was younger I thought women who got BA just wanted attention and did it mainly for men. I didn't understand that some people had reconstructive surgery, tuberous breasts, breast lifts, etc. I did some research when I was younger and found that you can have a natural look and it's not all porn stars who get implants. So I always felt pretty small and my booty was a lot larger than most girls and felt I wanted to be proportionate. Now I am and I don't think at all like I did when I was a kid. Having implants does not mean you want attention or you're doing it for a man (hopefully not), but it's about you and what you want.

SAME HERE. And when I went in for my BA I had them quote me on Rhinoplasty at the same time, but it would have brought me up to $14,000 and I just couldn't do it. I wanted to leave some money aside in the case of complications. A new beautiful nose will have to wait.

I believed all augmented breasts felt hard & taut! Like a big navel orange. Before I began researching, asking ladies who already had BA, and getting a chance to feel women's implants when they generously offered, I thought every implant would have a firm, fake result. I never would have considered having my surgery done if I hadn't been corrected! Mine feel 100% natural to the touch & not hard at all.

I always thought plastic surgery was a waste of money, unjustifiable. Well look at me now! Best money I ever spent and lesson most definitely learned

Never had any issues with BA. As far as me getting one.. I figured one day I might, but feared it would interfere with my life too much, as far as being very active (it did not).

For those mentioning rhinoplasty... when I went for my initial consult, my PS asked, "Who did your nose?" I must have had a great reaction displayed on my face, because he gave a nice one back. It was the first time anyone had ever asked me who performed rhinoplasty on my untouched nose. Totally threw me, and it took me a bit to take it as a compliment, since I never liked my nose. It did convince me to never let a surgeon near it though, lol.

I never really had any stereotypes about who got plastic surgery or getting something done in general, but i always assumed (as far as implants go) it was a go big or go home industry and that i'd have some PS trying to throw implants into me that would make me burst. i also thought that implants always looked and felt fake and that any man who felt them would feel these horrible bags in my breasts. keep in mind, i'm an RN, so when i feel a bag of saline it does NOT feel like a nice squishy boob, but those are in plastic lol but still, the idea that they'd even feel remotely similar freaked me out. it really wasn't until i felt the different implants in my hand that I was finally ok with the idea of having one in me.

I thought all BA would look like bolt on spheres that never changed and were ridiculously firm.
Seeing the actual implant as well as talking with my surgeon about the look I wanted cleared all that up.

I had a narrow mindset because I thought (with the exception of cancer reconstruction) that the only reason to get a BA was because one was simply tired of being flat-chested. I never knew there were so many other reasons to get a BA.

The amount of before and after pics I've seen over the last 3-4 years opened my eyes to what breastfeeding does to the boobs (going from full DD to A just bc you breastfeed a couple of babies?!!!) And I've seen pics of very young women, in their twenties or even teens, who have never been pregnant much less breastfed, with boobs that sag like (what I would think) a 60-year-old woman's would!!

I also really did think I was the only woman in the whole world with different size boobs. I was raised in a very strict modest home environment, I never had seen any other woman's boobs until I saw online pics, so what a relief to know I was not the only one.

Also my thinking has changed, in that I feel every woman has a right to look the way she wants to. If it means plastic surgery, whatever it is, there should be no guilt in improving on your appearance. I tried thru the years to get my boobs fixed but since my insurance never approved it, I accepted that I couldn't get it done. Idk why I never considered that this was an important part of how I felt about myself as a woman; I think bc I've always been the kind of wife/mom to put myself last over the needs of my kids. No more!
