Thinking of getting one, all on line searches seem to be full of people saying only regret is not doing it sooner.. But surely some people must have regrets. Or have things go very wrong. I would like to go for it but what if...!?! Thanks
My friend had hers done at 19 and then had them taken out at 20 because she lost weight and thought that they looked too big. She doesn't regret getting them done she just regrets getting them too big.
2 of my friends regret theirs. One has a lot of rippling and they look very fake. The other hates the shape and thinks they are uneven. She won't take her top off around anyone and experiences pain in them frequently.
No, but bear in mind they may need replacing at some point. 10 years a further pregnancy with a dose of mastitis thrown in, I have a bit of rippling, im not too bothered at the moment but I will need them redone at some point. But no regrets having them.
Hi I first had them done 15 years ago I was flat chested (didn't even fill an A cup) I went up to a C cup, A week or so after the op one of them started to reject, I had it redone and thankfully it took the second time. Good job as the surgeon did say if it rejected a second time he would advise to leave out for about 6 months before trying again. I was so scared I would be left with just one boob! I have heard of this happening to other people.
Even with all the problems though I didn't regret getting it done. I finally had breasts!
I had them redone 3 years ago with an uplift, I had gone up to an F cup whilst breastfeeding so they didn't look the best afterwards plus they recommend having them changed after 10+ years. This time everything went fine, no complications and I have a nice pert pair of DD's
Not for a minute. I have slight rippling and I don't mind it at all. I was a 32 aa and now I'm an E but they look perfectly proportioned on me as I'm tall with very wide shoulders. My sister had to get hers redone after 6 months as the implant dropped too low and she doesn't regret hers either.
