    Anon or delete please. Thanks.


    I'm almost 20 and have never been naked in front of anyone, for this reason. They just look awful Even the best bra won't help.
    I've told my best friend that I hate my breasts because they look 'saggy', but she always says "Oh don't be silly, I'm sure they're fine!" But I only found out today [reading an article in Cosmo] that this is the actual name for the deformity I have. And I don't want to tell her that, because it's just so embarassing!


    I desperately want surgery, but I can't confide in my mum about this because she'd just say "Why? Who's going to see them?" [she's very religious and doesn't believe in sex before marriage], which is not the whole reason why I want surgery... It's mainly because I lack any self-confidence. 2) I'm so so nervous about going to the doctor because I'm obviously going to have to show her my breasts. And 3) There's no way I could possibly afford surgery, but I don't know if I'd be able to get an operation on the NHS...


    This is really getting me down and stopping me from being confident with male attention :cry: Advice please?

    If it's getting you down that much then surgery would be the sensible thing to do if it means it'll build your confidence up. As for your mum, tell her your husband will have to see them (thus complying with the whole 'sex before marriage' thing).

    I'm actually trained to do breast augmentation, so feel free to pop in anytime and I'll give you a check-up and hopefully we can work out a good shape that you'd like.

    i had the same problem, but i put on a bit of weight and it got better. i think that was due to the contraceptive pill though coz sometimes ur breasts get bigger coz of it.

    You're probably being far far too critical! Listen, men just love breasts/boobs/whatever. Don't be embarrassed or ashamed sweetheart please!

    Sorry! If you really don't like them then its your choice to have the surgery, people often discourage it but it makes people feel so much better. If you're an adult you won't necessarily have to tell your mum, though it will be hard to hide.

    Hi, OP. Sorry this is RIDICULOUSLY long, but you sound really upset, so I’ve tried to give you some genuine, friendly advice – and no-one else needs to read this if they don’t want to. :P

    OK for a start, never ever define yourself with a 'deformity' because you've read some article in a magazine. What the hell does 'Cosmo' know about your breasts?! Nothing. It’s not a medical journal and it’s most certainly not a doctor conducting a medical examination of your breasts, which is the only situation in which you should ever accept a diagnosis of this variety. It’s very likely that you’re getting worked up over very little. Go and talk to a doctor you’re comfortable with and get her to reassure you.

    About their appearance. Do you have large breasts? And are you, or have you ever been, overweight? Large breasts naturally hang lower than small ones (and gaining weight can increase this). The images you see in magazines of ‘perfect’ large breasts are often airbrushed or contain implants, so what you perceive as 'saggy' may very likely be much more normal than you think it is. People sometimes say that large breasts look better than small breasts when in a bra, and vice versa.

    Please do be careful when considering surgery. This is partly for general reasons (painful, invasive, carries risks as any medical procedure like that does, risk of permanent scarring etc.) But more importantly, I think that you should be careful because you specifically say that you want surgery 'mainly because I lack self-confidence'. Surgery may possibly give you perkier breasts, but it probably won’t deal with a crisis of confidence and self-loathing. My advice is for a start, to keep looking for decent bras. Go to the best shops possible and look at the best bras available - they are a hell of a lot cheaper than surgery and a lot more fun to shop for! You will need to try on a lot until you find ones that you like - this one is very good for lifting breasts into a perkier, sexier shape.

    Ask the shop assistants for advice on a bra that will give you a sexy, uplifted shape.

    As regards men - what "men in general" think of perfect breasts is completely unimportant. What is important is that you should find someone you love and feel comfortable with. Someone who loves you won't give a damn if you don't have perfect breasts, just as you won't care if his body isn't exactly like Brad Pitt's. Everyone has body hang-ups, not just you. You just need to get it into perspective.

    I really hope that helped a bit - best of luck to you. Again, sorry for the length - now, back to the essay I'm SUPPOSED to be writing...!

    I really think if you're unhappy with them you should get something done. There's no reason to be shy in front of a doc because they've seen it all before. You're just another person to them. I googled what you're talking about and you might be able to get some financial help, esp. if you say it's damaging you psychologically. Once you set the ball in motion you will feel alot of relief and it will become much easier.

    Hey, can I just say that women with tubular breasts usually have small boobs because their boobs are under-developed. It's this under-development of the breast tissue that makes them tubular shaped.

    Fair enough - thanks! If the OP does have small breasts then the bra I recommended won't work for her, but there will be others - and I think everything else I said still applies. Also of course, we still don't actually know that she does have tubular breasts because she's only going on a generalised magazine article, not an actual medical diagnosis.

    Maybe you could try and get it done on the NHS by claiming its bringing your confidence down excessively. They do it with all sorts like pinning people's ears back.

    OP. Go onto the channel 4 website and watch last weeks episode of embarrasing bodies. I think it might help you. And I think you're entitled to a boob job on the NHS.
