I have breast implants. This was not really information that I envisioned myself discussing in this forum –though I am quite open about it in my ‘real life’. I only release this for discussion at this point because I hope that it will educate people to think before they speak –or judge…
I was so torn over whether to go through with it. I had two small children and I kept envisioning my funeral if I died under anesthesia:
“I can’t believe she was so vain.”
“I know and with those precious boys left with no mother so she could have boobs.”
My husband intervened and said that it was ridiculous that I was only 30 years old and so miserable and insecure about my body.
“You should not want to cry every time that you look in the mirror!” (I'm sure it didn’t hurt that he has always been an implant man).
Anyway, I went to a great surgeon –not a stripper 'Sal Calabro' doctor that makes each breast identical to a submarine torpedo. I don't mind mirrors anymore --and it was wonderful to throw away the padded bras that hid my secret for so long.
We are all taught that we shouldn’t judge people on their looks or their clothes, job or wealth… but plastic surgery –especially breast implants is fair game –judge away! This procedure has been a God-send to many cancer patients and has helped to restore their self-confidence and their femininity. So the moral of this story is the next time you want to talk about the vain girl that paid $7,500 for big boobs –stop yourself and think about the reasons that she may have done it.
