    So..finally I have decided to get breast implants. I have been pondering for so long and been on and off, but I always go back to being dissatisfied. I am a small B (can sometimes fit an A). If I go braless in a tight top or in a triangle unpadded bikini top, I may look flat or way too pear-shaped (I am a UK size 8, but have a bit of bum and hips). I am sick and tired of push ups and padding - it's weird and I imagine for a guy it's like unwrapping a huge present to find it half full.
    I'm sick of articles portraying hourglass celebrity women as 'real women'. Many of the hottest celebrities known as naturally curvy also have implants, they just got small ones when they were young. That is part of the reason I want to do it now - I'm almost 22 and it's better people get used to seeing me in a certain shape now than have the shock later.
    I have a discreet, feminine style and look as far from tacky as can be. I'd go to a top surgeon for best results and would get a moderate size - C or a small D.

    Guys - have any of you actually been (knowingly) dating a girl with breast implants?
    Girls - do any of you have them or know someone who do?
    How do I find the best possible surgeon?

    That's a completely fair decision to come to - would just say to make sure you're absolutely, absolutely aware of all the risks and health warnings that come with it. It might be worth going to see an independent consultant who won't be biased either way to advise you.

    Thanks. I'll obviously use a clinic which has never used an of those PIP-implants the French clinics used that went wrong.
    I'm not sure where to find objective reviews of the different clinics though. I've been looking at Cadogan Clinic, I think they're supposed to be good.

    Weird timing for me to see someone posting on here making the decision I've just made!

    In terms of choosing the surgeon/where to have it, I've chosen to go to my local Spire hospital rather than a chain of cosmetic surgery clinics. I just have the vibe from them that they're more likely to give good advice and support after the operation and long term. Also it's somewhere family and friends have been for scans or other, non-cosmetic treatment and I know it's a reliable place.

    They did an information day in cosmetic surgery the other day where I sat down with a surgeon and could ask the questions I wanted an answer to. That was free btw so you could look on your local spire hospital website and see if there's one near enough for you to go to?

    I'm booked in for my first proper consultation on Wednesday, so examination, discussing over/under muscle, teardrop/round implants etc

    We sound quite similar in just wanting to be a normal size, not porno boobs, so I'm interested in what decisions you make!mplease keep this thread updated as you go along!

    I was involved with a girl with breast implants and I knew.
    Wasn't an issue for me (infact she had awesome boobs, and they were not unnatural to touch). She did have scars there, but they were barely noticable, and I did not find it an issue at all.

    Ultimately, as long as your making the decision for yourself, rather then for anyone else, then it's your choice.

    With the internet, you'll be able to see who is highly recommended, see pictures of the surgeons work.

    One indicator of the surgeon's skill, is they are not going to be cheap, bare that in mind. If it look's too cheap, then there could be a reason for that.

    Don't go abroad to have them done.

    If it's too cheap to have them done then that's not a good sign.

    Most men won't have been in a relationship with a woman with breast implants precisely because the amount of women who do it and who are your age are very few and far between. I've not dated anyone with breast implants and I can honestly say that hand on heart, I think I would have trouble dating a girl who had had breast implants.

    What's the underlying reason for you wanting them? Do you feel less womanly for having smaller breasts, OP?

    This isn't really an indication on how good the surgeon is; PIP did use medical-grade silicone and apparently were very good implants, but then to make more profit switched to industrial silicone. Many, many UK clinics used PIP implants before the scandal came about. I've heard "Nagor" are a good brand which are made in britain? Not sure though; don't take my word for it.

    I suggest you join a boob job forum (as I did) to read other woman's surgery stories, reviews etc. They are very unbiased usually, as if you are reading reviews on the internet, it could be the clinic itsself posting the reviews.

    There are so many things to think about when having a boob job, but if you definitely want the natural look, have "under the muscle" implants (if possible). Also implant shape is important. I had "moderate" but I think the "high profile" ones are very round (like Victoria Beckham's) which isn't a look I wanted. Apparently it's more painful, but I had this done and I'm a complete wimp and recovered very well.

    I can't really give much advice as I really rushed into my boob job and went bigger than I should of, they do look and feel very natural, but they are just a bit "out there" as i'm quite petite. They actually make me feel a bit fat and frumpy. Unfortunately I found the forum after I had surgery, but they really do give excellent advice.

    Go to lots of consultations anyway, the big companies have free ones, but if you read about a particular surgeon who you like the sound of, they could have a private clinic and could charge £100+ just for the consult, but really, find out everything you need and make a well thought out decision, as even paying for consultations is better than choosing the cheapest surgeon.

    I dated a girl with breast implants, though she was a lot older than me, but I can tell you they were f-ing great.

    I've just had my proper consultation, got my operation date for the end of August which is perfect for me in terms of holidays/going back to uni! The examination wasn't as mortifying as I thought it would be either

    Cannot wait now!!

    OP if you have questions about the consultation etc ask!

    My best friend at Uni had breast implants put in about 7 years ago. When they were first in, they looked good, but they look awful now. First she lost quite a few pounds, which left her with less fatty tissue on her breasts, and left you able to see ridges at the edge of the implants. Then she had a baby, which meant they got enormous and shrunk down, so now they are looser and you can still see ridges - they look like very obvious implants and don't look natural. She didn't breastfeed her baby, but I don't know if that was because she couldn't because of the implants or just because she didn't want to. Now her life has changed and she has a child, she can't afford to get the implants replaced or changed even though they look bad. With implants, if you get them young, you often have to have replacements or more surgery several times in your life, so it is a lifetime commitment - and even if you get them removed, it still leaves them saggy with scar tissue.

    She has had to explain them to every man she has got intimate with since she got them, because they ARE obvious, which I think is far worse than having them discover you have naturally small breasts. Not all men like them, and while small breasts are just small breasts and beyond your control, some people will make judgements about you because you have implants - not because they are huge, my friend's aren't, but because you were hung up enough on your breasts to spend the money on them in the first place or because breast implants represent something in particular to them.

    There is nothing wrong with having small breasts - they aren't automatically un-sexy, you know. One ex told me he'd had a fling with a girl who was completely flat apart from her nipples which were large, and he'd found it incredibly sexy. Another guy told me it was all about nipples for him. I've never ever been out with a guy who was hung up on the size of a woman's breasts.

    If you really want them, you're doing it for yourself rather than for some guy and you have done all the research on it then I'd say go for it if you are so focused on having one.
    However, if I was your size, I personally wouldn't go through with it. You should try and gain some confidence and love who you are without having surgery. Having small breasts is really nothing to be worried about! If the surgery doesn't work out, how would you feel then? It would probably make you feel a lot worse when you already looked good! I wouldn't take the risks.

    Can I ask how much you're going with?

    I've spoken to a doctor today, and tried on implants (in their bra). I thought the 340ccs looked nice and she agreed. I'm naturally around a 34B. Smaller, and there wouldn't be much change. Bigger, and it'd look unnatural. I do have a bit of breast tissue, which will help them look and feel natural. My breasts are quite perky, they stand out like two 'little mountains' but I look very small/flat in a triangle bikini top. What I'm looking for is essentially for them to have more shape and 'weight'.
    I want them to look natural, but of course I want a good size as I don't want to get another adjustment-surgery. I know it is entirely possible, as a friend of my sister has had hers done and I would NEVER guess they were fake if she hadn't told me. I was prejudiced before, but that was because the only relationship I had to breast augmentation was online articles and pictures of TOWIE women.

    I'm not from the UK, but I've been looking at who's recommended, and I've met some from the Harley Street Medical Group here in London. I believe they have a good reputation in the UK? I've joined online forums and the women who's had theirs done there seem happy.
    The price is 4000, which is around average, 4300 with the newest, long-lasting implants.
