Now that you have them.....would you ever........?

So for those ladies who feel like they FINALLY went thru puberty upon getting pregnant - which resulted in finally feeling like you have normal tata's........would you consider augmentation?

I've been thinking about this more and more lately and its somewhat driving me crazy.  On the one hand I was barely a B cup before DS1 was born.  After he was born and after I stopped nursing my fabulous new chest not only disappeared - but was SMALLER than what I was BEFORE I got pregnant.  How depressing.  It really affected me too.  I felt weird all of a sudden in front of DH like something was wrong w/ me or somethign was missing.  Now that I'm preggo again with DS2 and my fabulous chest has returned I realized how much this improves my self confidence.  Making me wonder - would I ever really consider surgery????  And I Guess that's what bothers me - I feel so shallow for thinking it.  Thoughts?

  • Fortunately, I have always been pretty endowed. But I will say, that from the start I've always stated that once we're 'done' having kids.. they are going back to the place they belong. So I will probably have some sort of "corrective" surgery once my tata's fall and become less 'full'

  • I would! I have a large chest naturally (normally a 32-34 C or D depending on bra), but with this little man in me, I am moving quickly towards a DD. Problem is, my mom also had large tatas pre-babies and went down to little mosquito bites after we arrived (sorry ma!). I love having a small, but curvy frame, and I think if I shrunk down to a size that made me feel less feminine I would get surgery. Most likely post-babies, and probably only to a full B or C cup, just to fill out a dress or top... Call me shallow, but I like having a nice full rack ;)

    This, if anything.  It really depends on how well they fair with my pregnancies.  I would never enhance the size of mine since i've always wanted a reduction due to back pain but I would reconstruct them if they fell too much or didn't go back down in size.

  • I was a solid B+ before kids, my largest being a DD when nursing DS1. After DS1 and especially after DS2 my chest completely flattened. You know the tribal women with pancake chests? I can empathize. I know it will only be that much worse after I'm doing nursing LO#3 and yes, it is definitely something I have spoken with my DH about. A lot would have to change with our finances for me to justify spending that dough on something as trivial as my boobs, but I hope we can!

  • Quite honestly I have fairly large tatas to begin with...I am considering a reduction when this is all over!

  • I'm the opposite. I'm definitely considering breast reduction surgery after we're done having kids. I've always been pretty self conscious about my huge chest. And although I feel pretty comfortable in my own body now, I know my life and my confidence would definitely improve.

  • I have always said that after I am finished having babies, I will be getting the girls worked over. I was a 32C before baby and am now busting out of my 32DDD. I wouldn't want to go back to this big, but possibly a nice DD. :)

  • Probably not. I have enjoyed the girls, for sure; I feel like a real woman! lol. But I never had to worry about cleavage before, and now it seems like half my shirts are indecent. NMS.

    It would be nice for them to stand at attention again, though. Post-BF they kind of resemble empty balloons. Ah well, DH still enjoys them, and that's all I really care about.


  • I'm in the same boat as you OP, so I feel your pain lol. After I stopped BFing DD1, the girls just looked sad and droopy. I guess the good thing about having small boobs is that there isn't much there to "sag" downwards.. but that's about the only positive haha.

    I see nothing wrong with plastic surgery, as long as your mindset is in the right place. Do it for you and not for anyone else, and don't expect supermodel results. I had my nose done when I was 19 and have not regretted it once. It totally boosted my self-confidence. If we somehow came across $6,000 or so extra dollars then I'd totally get my boobs done. I'd be happy with a small C lol.

  • I can honestly say I've never thought about it. I was nearly A before I had DD, we bf for almost 2 1/2 years, and they didn't go back to "normal." They were a bit saggier, but almost a whole size bigger (nearly B, lol). Now I think they are nearly C, (I'm kinda tight in my normal B's), and when my milk comes in will probably get a bit bigger. Hoping the trend continues and they stay a bit bigger than when I started out before this pregnancy, lol.

    I'm with you on a reduction! I went from nothing to a C cup in 4th grade. Before becoming p/g I was already a 34DD. Once the babies are done with these bad boys, I'm planning on a reduction to a C cup.

  • I never was pro-boob-job. But then I had kids. The girls were uneven to begin with, but pregnancy and breast feeding only made matters worse. There is now a 2 (yes TWO) cup size difference between lefty and righty. So while I wouldn't necessarily aim for an augmentation, I definitely wouldn't mind a bit of a remodel to make things more even.

  • I'd get a reduction if I could afford it.

  • I would do surgery! I have a large chest naturally (normally a 36 D), but with this little man in me, I am now a DD.  I have already told mt DH that after we are done having kiddos, I am getting a lift and maybe a reduction. I would love to be a C cup.  After my mom had kids, her tatas never went back down!

  • I have breast implants.  I had them done in 2007 after I had lost a lot of weight and felt like my breasts completely deflated.  I was 26 at the time and felt like I still had so much life to live and I wanted to feel good about myself, naked.  I totally and completely love my "new" breasts and I have no regrets.  I went from a B to a DD.  They have helped me to feel more confident and feminine and I love that my DH loves them.  We were dating at the time that I had the surgery, so he saw the before and after first hand.  He never encouraged me to have the surgery, but loves that I got them done.  

    Its a very personal decision that only you can make.  I researched them for about a year and looked at 1000s of before/after photos before making my decision.  

    If you have any questions about the surgery, I don't mind answering any questions.

  • I am naturally chesty - usually a DD. So I don't think I'll need augmentation, though I understand the logic behind it for other women. I did want to tell you that I have made it very clear to my husband that we will be paying for a hoist after we're done having kids. My boobs stayed big after nursing DS1 but fell. I would like to bring them back up to their former perky place. 

    I would never advise messing with your boobs while you're still having kids/nursing because as we've seen, a lot can change. But once you're done, I see no reason if you have the money to not do something to feel more confident.

  • I've been on the larger end at a D cup, but now I'm in the E range. When I'm done having children, I want to get a lift for sure. I feel like there is the potential for significant saggy girls in my future. 

  • After gaining 70 lbs during pregnancy with DD, pumping, and losing 60 lbs post-partum, by boobs looked like deflated balloons. Its actually pretty sad because I used to love my once very perky/firm 34Cs. Right now they are monstrous again, I call them baboon tits. I'm sure after I've had DS and once I'm done with BFing or pumping they'll go back to looking like deflated baloons. I would love to get work done but I'm quite a chicken and my immune system isn't the strongest of the bunch. I feel like I would be one of those women whose body would reject the implants.

  • As someone who went from basically flat chested to D's at the age of 11, I have considered reduction for a long time. My mother and younger sister both did it and are very happy with the results. I'm going to wait until I'm done having children because you obviously can't breastfeed after having it done, but if we have the money, I would strongly, strongly, strongly consider it. Nothing shallow about wanting to be happy with your breasts, especially if it improves your self confidence.

    (I'll add that I had a nose job when I was 17 and have no regrets.)

  • Yes, I very likely will get an augmentation.  I have a small frame and was always just fine with my small B's - they were at least proportional to my overall figure.  Then I got pg and they turned into glorious C's.  Fast forward to post-BF and all I had left were nipples, no boob.  I had a really hard time with that - NOTHING fit right.  AA bra's were too big.  Most shirts looked terrible.  I dreaded bikini tops like I was 13 again.  I wore padded AA bras just so that I'd have some sort of shape.  And it started to make me feel bad around MH - there's no point in taking off my shirt, and that just constantly put a damper on truly enjoying sexy time.

    So yes, we've talked about it and once we are sure we are done having kids, I think I'm going to get them done.  Nothing crazy, likely a large B.  I don't want to be embarassed by a set too large around my parents or co-workers.  I don't want to send a bad message to DD.  But I do just to feel feminine again.  Although I am really dreading the idea of surgery & the recovery, so who knows - I may chicken out.

  • I was a 34B before I got pregnant and always said, "Thank god for small favors!" I've shot up to a 36D and I really like the boost... at least for now.  I guess I'll just have to wait and see how I feel after they go back down since this is my first child. It's easy for me to say I won't mind my chest getting saggy, however I'm all for doing an augmentation if it will make me feel good.

  • I haven't experienced the post-nursing deflation, but I've grown 2 cups sizes (from barely B to D) since I've been pregnant. I always kind of wished I were bigger, but my clothes fit SO MUCH BETTER before my boobs grew! I'm tall and thin, so I had a hard time finding clothes that fit in the first place, let alone, tall and thin with bigger boobs (and a growing baby bump)!

    I guess I'll have to wait and see how the girls end up looking after I'm done nursing, but if I had to decide now, I'd stick with my barely B's! Wink

  • I guess I am in the minority, but I would never consider surgery to correct anything about my body. I was an E before this (H right now, yikes), so if they shrink afterwards, I would be very happy. But even if they don't, I wouldn't change the way I am.

  • Before having kids, I was a B. After weaning my daughter, I was a small B or possibly a "large" A! Teeny. But looking at pictures of me a few months after having a daughter, large(r) boobs look so weird on me! They don't fit my frame at all. I don't think I'll consider augmentation but instead, I'd rather invest in some really good bras.

  • My breasts have so far remained one size larger post bfing, but they're so floppy that I really need a lift. Since they do take away volume with a lift, I'd likely need augmentation too. I'm not really sure if I'm willing to spend all that money on a surgery. What I'd really like to do is get back into really great shape after baby and see what still needs work. I'll likely need a tummy tuck too... If someone have me the money, I'd do it in a heartbeat. It's spending the money on something like this for myself that's difficult.

    It is actually possible to BF after a reduction. You're more likely to have problems, which is why I've waited, but it is possible.

  • I've definitely thought about it and DH is on board! I had small Bs before DS and after BFing they totally deflated...made me wish I had enjoyed what I had PRIOR to having kids instead of complaining about how "small" they were. I never thought they could get any smaller, but they did.

  • I can't say I have ever really lacked in the chest area BUT after having 2 kids (and now a 3rd on the way) I have totally brought up surgery to DH. I don't want to really go up a size or anything but I would like to do something to lift them and make the shape nicer.
