I’m surprised this isn’t talked about more. As a flat chested woman I considered implants in my youth, but learning about the revisions every 10 years, the sheer cost of that, and what Lumos said about possible auto immune complications, it just wasn’t worth it. That’s not even touching on general surgery complications and that sometimes the implants burst!

ETA I researched it in the late 90s/early 00s. The crazy thing is this information was nowhere. I had to look for it. The attitude at the time was “just get boobs! One easy surgery at 19 or so! They’re fabulous and you’ll be all set!” Learning about the revision surgery every ten years was a real eye opener.

If only body parts were as trivial and interchangeable as these people pretend.

I would trade my big breasts with a flat chested woman in a heartbeat.
