My Great Debate

This might seem like an odd topic for me to post about but I would really love to hear the thoughts of other women. I've never been big on plastic surgery or any of it's likeness - sometimes a wonder if that is only because I can't afford it. I guess I should really back up and start at the beginning.

As a young girl I had no issues in the breast department. In fact I've never had a huge amount of confidence and rarely say positive things about myself, but, I must admit when it came to my breast... I was a fan. Then of course I had four children. Overall I can't complain, my stomach looks just like it did before my kids as does the rest of me with one exception, those breast I once loved our gone.

Everyone is quick to tell you one of the benefits of being pregnant -increased breast size- but no one every told me after I gave birth I would lose my PRE-pregnant breasts! Over the years, this is a physical thing that really bothers me. I can't wear the same tops I used to, I hate being seen in a swimsuit the lack of confidence with the way things turned out in that region can really play tricks on the mind. 

For a long time now I have been having the great breast implant debate with myself. I don't want huge ones, I just want what I once had back and in the right spot! I wouldn't be doing it for anyone but myself - my husband thinks it's a ridiculous idea. I however think, it would be good for my self-esteem. Then of course I can't help but think about the breast implant prices in the US

With four children can I really justify such a selfish purchase? Then again is it really selfish if it makes you feel better about yourself? Then I think is that vain of me to want or need to feel better about myself. I have four healthy kids, a loving husband why should I need implants to feel better about myself?

I don't know. I guess it's just one of those odd things I think about every so often and am just curious how others feel.

Personally, I think as long as it is done for yourself then I would do it.

I don't know which is the right decision to be perfectly honest with you but I do know as a mother it is hard to make decisions about ourselves as we have sacrificed for our family for so long that any decision for ourselves actually seems selfish after a while. I think this one is entirely up to you and I know you will make the right choice.

I think that you are the one that has to want it, not anybody else. I'm on the other end, when I had my first child, I was a size AA, went back to that size after having my son, then I had my daughter & now I wear a D, sometimes I wish I was back to at least a B. I gained a lot of weight with my daughter, not with my son. Again, I think it has to be what you want.

you may not need implants at all....a good surgeon can tell you if a simple lift would be more appropriate. that being said, do what you need to do for you, if you can afford it. heck, if i could afford it, i'd have everything lifted and tucked so much that when i died, my belly button would be on the top of my head!

I'm all about cosmetic intervention. I'd love to have my girls put back where they used to be... between gravity and kids - I say heck yeah!

No need for enhancement here but after my last child, I think I would be willing to discuss a reduction...bigger is not always better ;)
