Default Question about breast implants, seriously

I know go ahead with the jokes but we all know if you need an "intelligent" question answered ask it on THT

20 yr old daughter, soon to be 21, has been saving her $$ and is wanting implants

Now she has NEVER been a minutes trouble and is doing well in college and she is an adult so really not much we can say either way but just want not know, from those of you that have wives/girlfriends (or both) that have had this done what we need to know

The Admiral is going to go to the consultation with her and there are a couple of very good cosmetic surgeons in town that come highly recommended.

Just any do's/don'ts or advice you can tell me to make sure she does all her research prior to this

and NO I will not post pictures of the finish product on Sand Bar

Dont get 'em too big. I dated a girl for a few months that had em. She was petite amd i like to pet tit so why it didnt last, i'll never know. But anyway, she said that when she had em done, she wanted a certain size that was larger than the ones she actually ended up getting. The doc recommended smaller ones than what she wanted because they would be more appropriately sized for her, given that she was not very big. I think she was 5 ft, 105lbs or something like that. Given the finished product, id have to say i agree with the doc. They were proportionally correct. They looked nice, but they didnt stand out as fake because of the size.

My wife has them. Didn't get them until all kids were born and them still waited a few years. She got them around age 33. Now, 46. It was a fairly significant surgery in my opinion. She was sore for quite a while. I have a 22 yo and a 20 yo daughter as well. Personally, I would try to have them wait. To me, that's an early age. Then if they get married, have kids, breast feed, I would just rather have them wait. Good luck

Thanks, don't she is not wanting the HUGE or anything

I assume this is something the surgeon advises them on ;?

The girl I am dating got them. She is young.
Big boost to her self confidence.
She is good looking, the new "pair" just really set it off.
More expensive is not always better.
They take awhile to "set".
They don't have to be huge to work.

"I assume this is something the surgeon advises them on?"

She goes in for a consult, they have her try on different prosthetic bras, take pictures, etc. They do this twice, just encase they change their mind (the person gittin the boobies. )
This whole process went smooth, she WAS sore, for awhile.

The question is really why does she want them ? If she is very flat chested and wants to improve her figure thats one thing.... But if she is looking to flaunt her breasts in hopes of meeting guys thats not good..

BTW - My wife got a set when she was in her mid 30's .....

Not as painful as the surgery two of my four sisters experienced. They had breast reduction surgeries in their twenties......there is such a thing. Their breasts were too large. Huge boobs ran in my Mothers Austrian blood line. One sister couldn't run or exercise since her boobs were so large. Both were experiencing back problems that would only get worse with age. They went through hell after those surgeries in the 80's. Today they are still well endowed and happy. Both went on to have children and they were able to breast feed their kids.

Sorry for the diversion tprice.

Under muscle, go 50cc larger than what she thinks is the right size.

They are far safer now with Saline as compared to Silicone.

Some girls can handle having them......some cant. From my experiences with couples in my area, big fake boobs can be the devil. I have seen marriages fall apart on numerous occasions when the guys' wives couldn't handle the new attention.

Good luck to the OP, I know you are stuck since your daughter is an adult.

I'm just a spectator, but curious about the mechanics of your question ;? Can you explain so tprice will have an idea if the subject comes up?

The old silicone implants would rupture and leak the somewhat toxic silicone into the woman's body........bad things happened then. Saline, saltwater, is not toxic like silicone.

Most important to pick the right doc. My wife is an RN at an amb surg center that does a lot of plastic. She knows which docs do good work and those to avoid (one to avoid is called Dr. frankenboob). See if you can get a rec from folks that see all of the docs work product, not just a couple of folks that have had a good experience

By the way, that is not true. The illnesses that were claimed to have been caused by these implants occurred with greater frequency in the general public than in the litigants.

I should have qualified my comment and said......"it used to be reported leaking silicone implants caused autoimmune problems"

I meant the part about going 50cc larger.

Yup it was a great time to be an attorney for either side or an "expert" not so much for Dow shareholders or confused patients. 14 years later FDA gets it right. And we are again using silicone implants, though there is no doubt the quality of the product is much improved. Lawyers science and juries, not a good combination.

Dan was in my class at Duke - always thought he would end up doing something like this for a career . . .
