Anyone had a breast enlargement? (.)(.)(15 Posts)
i personally wouldnt go under the knife unless it was absolutely necessary but i think a great many of these ops are carried out. My sis is curently looking at breast reduction but her tits are ENORMOUS
I would jump at the chance of a boob job
Just need to find the 3 or 4 grand first!!
My Mum and my best friend both had a boob job for purely cosmetic reasons.
My friend is 6'3" so always stands out in a crowd and hated her AA chest being at eye level. She had a D cup but looks in proportion as she is so tall.
My Mum had a C-cup for her 50th birthday - just finally got the courage and money to go back to the size she was before she BF'd me my Sis!
I think you have to be pretty serious about wanting one to go through the pain - it is not a nice op. However, they are both still 100% for it and would not change a thing.
I've interviewed loads of women who have had breast augmentation (as the docs call it) and all of them were absolutely delighted with it. I would say it's not for me, and I'd never do it just to have bigger than average breasts, but some women were just miserable with totally and absolutely flat chests and some had very, very droopy, flat breasts. I thought the results were very variable - from great to not great, but all the women were happy. Quite painful at first though. I'd only choose a real specialist in breast ops personally - someone who had done lots of them. I'd want to see photos of his work and ideally talk to former patients.
Hi I am a plastic surgery nurse. Breast augment is a very successful op, far less major than a reduction! My concern with BUPA hospitals is that the nurses are expected to know about such a wide variety of post op regimes that things can go amiss.( No offence to them, they are still very skilled professionals) I have had many women referred to me from private hospitals with problems the private hospital can't deal with. Does your sister live near a plastic surgery regional unit? She might not get her sandwich served on a doily, but I can assure you she would get 1st class care. She will only be in hospital for a couple of days, and can still have a private room for a lot less money! The fact she is going through with it means she has obviously put alot of thought into it already. As long as she has done her research and found out everything she can about the surgeon then all I can say is go for it. I am sure she will feel like a new woman!
I can totally understand wanting an enlargement.
Mine weren't great, but ok prior to my babies eating them.
I did feel more feminine whilst breastfeeding (a size or so larger than usual).
I consider it occasionally, but don't know if I'd actually go through with it. I'm a self defence instructor and I don't know how practical (safe) it would be right now.
Blimey, from the sound of it, I think she ought to do some serious research. I once employed someone who had been a porter at the local (v expensive) private hospital and hetold some fairly hair-raising stories (apparently the nurses used to joke about booking ambulances to take patients to the local A & E when one particular surgeon was due to operate, and another was getting on and had been known to fall asleep mid operation). I really don't want to sound as though I'm scaremongering and I know plenty of these ops take place but I'd want all sorts of evidence of the surgeon's experience and ability!
My breasts seem bigger and have actually increased much in size. I hope boop pop helps for anyone looking for a very honest product.
Dunno anything about cosmetic breast surgery but East Grinstead is the dogs bollocks for plastic surgery. When there was a possibility of me having a mastectomy I looked into DIEP Flap recon and for our area it's all done by the plastic surgeons at East G. Spoke to a lady who had hers there and she said they were amazing.
