My daughter recently told me she is getting breast implants – very soon. She recently had a tummy tuck because she had 4 children and two of them were C-sections that did a lot of damage to her stomach muscles and skin. Her need to get a tummy tuck was for more than just cosmetic reasons. Cutting muscle and also nerves, twice, made it impossible to regain any tautness in her stomach. No amount of exercising would improve it. It was a difficult recovery, butting her from hip to hip, but she is pleased with the result.
She has never been happy with her boobs and thought, if she was trying to look better, she would have better symmetry if they were a little bigger. I don’t know if that would help with the stretch marks. I was fortunate. I had two children in my twenties but my body didn’t look as if I had babies. In fact, I worked as a topless dancer until I turned 40, and quit before I looked like I needed to. For those of you who raised an eyebrow or two, I also spent years as a musician, pool hustler, costume designer, sales manager and later store owner, music teacher and now soon to be book author. I should write another book, “How to Cram a Lot Into One Life” Okay, I was a little crazy.
Okay, back to the subject at hand. When I was a dancer and boob jobs were relatively new, they were terrible. It was like the doctor cut a grapefruit in half and stuffing them under the skin. They were at least two inches apart and no way could anyone mistake them for being real. Then the news came out about silicone breasts implants and how they broke and the silicone leaked down through the body completely disfiguring it. I’m not 100% sure, but I think at the very beginning of doing boob jobs doctors just injected silicone into the breast tissue.
Now I read this article and I am worried. My daughter already has some medical issuers and I don’t want her to do anything that has a chance of hurting her and now it seems almost definite – in the future. They KNOW these implants are going to break at some point. I hope I can get her to read this. If there is any chance of them making her sick I don’t want her to take the chance.
I just couldn’t resist adding this picture. How could someone do this to themselves? i hope she at least made a lot of money from people taking picture of her. Can you imagine playing – pin the tail on the boob?
