It depends upon man they are with.

I have never met a woman that was happy with it—unless they did it for themselves.

I think it’s incredibly rare that a woman would have enhancements for herself. My suspicion would be pressure from a SO or self esteem/ self image problems.

I’ve known plenty that are happy; I don’t have to guess at it.

I’ve met quite a few who had them. They’re happy for a year or two and then seem to stop liking it very much. I’ve heard a lot about loss of sensation and having to get them replaced.

And what about nursing after implants? Does it make a difference? I too have heard about loss of sensation.

I would say how well of a job you get done, like you might have to fork up an above average cost for it to be really good.

I have a couple friends who have them. They both still love them many years later and got them because of self-esteem/post-children body issues.

I’ve wanted them for years, through various partners, simply because I love boobs! My husband is actually not so sure, so I’m kind of talking him into it.

What about rhinoplasty? Are people generally happy with that?

All I keep hearing is that they lose sensation. Reason enough not to do it right there!

That depends… are you talking about women who do it for cosmetic reasons (either vanity or to please someone else)... or women who have reconstructive procedures? (like after a mastectomy?)
