"This is the size I wanted them to look at 19!"

There should be more stories like this about regretting breast implants. A very young woman is making a decision that binds the much older version of herself. Eh! I guess that's the way life is about all sorts of things. Time only goes in one direction. (Although I did once read a very cool book where the amazing realization in the end was that time actually goes in the other direction. I'd name the book, but the spoiler would ruin it.)

Anyway, the implant-regretter in the linked news item is mostly sad about breast feeding. I'm wondering what these implanted breasts look like 20 or 30 or 40 years later. I imagine young women thinking they won't care what their breasts look like when they are 40 or 50 or 60. But as the voice of the future, let me say: You will!

So will we.

Your husband will too.

Just saying.

I know a few women who got them after divorces. They didn't need the augmentation. They were also not so cash flush to warrant the expenditure. It is a head thing, obviously. I sign of insecurity.

Talking about regrets, how many people regret tattoos?

I see young woman with them on their necks, arms, sometimes on their faces. Pretty girls too. I find it a turn off. Like seeing a beautiful building with grafitti.

I'd say the book is "Time's Arrow," but it's clear pretty much throughout that time is moving backwards, so to say this is not to ruin any spoilers.

That's cruel.

Mick, is there anything in the Constitution about a female presidential candidate having naturally born breasts?

Because there should be if it is not there. There should be!

Mick said...

I'd rather have small and real than big and fake. Plus one of the preferred methods of installation, thru a nipple flap, can seriously impair nipple sensitivity. I have no attraction to fake. It's not nice to fool mother nature!

wv-- "uncoi": In your face.

If you are a women think about having a big tat on your shoulder for the rest of your life...in years to come we are going to see some big time remorse about this.

I guess not, but the comparison does illustrate the concept. Silicone or saline is not natural born, or a creature of one's own, and can, and does have deleterious consequences.

It had typos.

Calypso Facto said...

Ironic to see "Platic"[sic] in a paragraph title discussing Spelling.

Sixty Grit said...

It is summer here, and women are wearing skimpy clothes. I saw a friend who is my age, and noticed she had a tattoo above her left scapula. It must have been there a while, or perhaps it was just a lousy tat, as it looked like little more than a blotchy birthmark. She told me she had other tattoos, too. Nice. I didn't ask to see them.

While dropping my daughter off at the Private Christian High School during her Sophomore year (it was the late 90's), I could not help notice that all - and I mean all - of the the girls were at least minimally endowed with what appeared to be "c"-cup sizing. I mentioned to my wife that I never went to a school - or anywhere for that matter - that had so many well-"rounded" young ladies. My wife mentioned my observations to my daughter, who replied "Yeah, that's cause everyone buys 'em". We're talking 15 - 18 year old girls here, folks.

While talking with other parents at the school after a drama performance, my wife commented that she heard that some girls at the school had implants. One mother said " You bet! My daughter is not going to be left behind in that competition!" She was dead serious.

I still don't know if that's safe. I think I need to ask my daughter (or have my wife ask) how some of her 26 year old friends are doing with their implants now.

E.M. Davis said...

My wife has a tattoo on her hip and one on her foot.

I imagine the foot one will hold up well over time.

I'm always shocked that young women at the height of their attractiveness go under the knife to "fix" themselves. Big breasted or small breasted to be young is to be bonny. Sad that they don't see that about themselves.

MarkG said...

I've found that small breasts age much better than large ones (sample size = 2). And not having kids helps a lot too.

I figured if I hit 50 and started to go bald, I wouldn't care. I was right about that.

madAsHell said...

Not much of a boob man myself.

I do enjoy viewing the south end of a northbound woman. Love them long legs.

DADvocate said...

If you're naturally beautiful, like DADvocate's daughter, you don't need no enhancements.

I know a few women who got them after divorces.

My ex got breast reduction and a tummy tuck. Still doesn't look that great. Exercise and a healthy lifestyle go a lot further than surgery.

Original Mike said...

"I'd name the book, but the spoiler would ruin it."

May I request that you name it anyways? I'm a nut for time travel and related books. I'd love to read it even knowing the ending.

If you can't see your way to naming it, how about meeting me half way. Who's the author?

MarkG said...

Younger people will see how poorly tattoos age and they won't get them. Tattoos are something pathetic that their parents did -- tramp stamps and all that. In fact, that's probably already happening.

TMink said...

So both women are angry because they did not research the procedure or the doctor well enough before getting it done.

Don't be such a bimbo. Blame yourself, take responsibility and move on.

Dadvocate, your daughter is indeed a lovely young lady. And she looks bright eyed and happy! I am so pleased for you both, not surprised, but happy for you.

Armstrong and Getty on tattoos:

Not much that seems cool at 19 seems cool at 40.

Ann Althouse said...

Email me if you want the name of the book. It's much much better if you don't know how it ends.

Scott M said...

I've always thought the same for everyone that got huge tattoos.

DADvocate said...

Thanks, Trey. I've been blessed with great kids. (No tatttoos, plastic surgery, etc. either. Don't believe in it.) Unless you have a serious deformity, take what God gave you and flourish.

Scott M said...

"I'm a leg man myself," says the one.

Despite the boob/butt fixation we all have and tend to notice more than anything else, attractive feminine legs are soooooo rare.

Ditto with feet, despite the propensity to go open-toed shoe. Look, ladies, if you put on a sock and it looks like you have a mitten on, don't go open-toe.

edutcher said...

What ScottM said.

Supposedly, natural is coming back, movie producers have discovered audiences (i.e., men) like the real thing.

Ann Althouse said...

Somewhat like the Hindenburg and the Graf Zeppelin touching noses, I've read, which on an older woman, comes off rather ridiculous.

No values, thank the "parents".

I'm a leg man myself, as well. Tits are over rated.

Smile when you say that.

But a nice, firmly rounded, high-slung, sumptuous tush is as underrated as good legs.

Because your overwhelming, and overarching vanity will never die.

To all of our eternal shame.

edutcher said...

One thing these young ladies will learn is just how much bad plastic surgery there is out there.

Even Hollyweird isn't immune.

Just look at the Governator and his ex.

traditionalguy said...

So big fake breasts are out of style, which is interesting material for a Breast Blog that sometimes covers the Wisconsin Wars.

The Russian/Ukranian look seems to be the fad today. They carry Asian Mongol genes inter mixed with the Scandinavian genes from white Russians. The resulting look is perfection.

But that fad may change soon. Which is why any permanent marking and cutting of the body is a bad decision.

Heart_Collector said...

Paraphrased....

Questioner: Why dont you have big scary tattos like the other metal guys.

Dave Mustaine: You dont put a bumper sticker on a mercedes.

J said...

Why, Educita, with some upscale implants--you might even catch Cracki's eye. Maybe an anchor tat too. Oo la la

Titus said...

I love a nice set of tits that stand at attention.

"Younger people will see how poorly tattoos age and they won't get them."

John Waters made my favorite statement about tattoos: they might look fine when you're young and hot, but eventually you just look like an out-of-work Tilt-A-Whirl operator.

I always wanted to work at a Carnival.

I loved the Tilt A Whirl.

Scott M said...

I smell a billionaire in someone that could come up with a tat process that stays vibrant for a few years then fades quickly with little or no damage to the tissue.

"Exercise and a healthy lifestyle go a lot further than surgery."

There are exercises that reduce breast size?

DaveW said...

I read somewhere that 40% of young women are getting breast implants now, or maybe it was plastic surgery generally, can't recall.

I know a beautiful young woman that has them and I was shocked when she told me. She absolutely doesn't need breast implants. She's drop dead gorgeous without any enhancement.

I think it's really a shame that women think they have to fit some cartoonish ideal body type. It's horrible they feel this way.

And like the other leg men upthread, I don't even care about big boobs. I think they're making a big mistake.

Calypso Facto said...

Ever see a long-distance runner with big ta-tas?

ScottM: I did reply to your email yesterday when Blogger was down. Did it make it through your spam filter?

Scott M said...

Yes. Do I have a spam filter I'm not aware of? Did it remotely turn off the power at your house or something? :)

Calypso Facto said...

Did it remotely turn off the power at your house or something?

Don't think so...but with no return volley I'm mostly still curious if you bought a new motorcycle or not?!?

wv: wings. Ahh, maybe you got a Honda. Or a nighthawk.

Scott M said...

The HD V-Rod is the holy grail. Still working on the little missus, though.

rhhardin said...

And when upon your dainty breast I lay / My wearied head, more soft than eiderdown..

Let's keep it soft.

Perhaps it is the other way around: women with "big ta-tas" don't take up long distance running.

Then, I think it was non sequitar that once showed what was obviously a female patient sitting in front of a plastic surgeon's desk, and she is saying "I want them large enough that I can yell at men when they notice them."
Go figure. Gregory House, M.D. figures that women don't get bigger boobs for their husbands, in the end they really get them for themselves. I defer to his judgement.

MarkG said...

I've found that small breasts age much better than large ones (sample size = 2).

So you're comparing large and small breasts from a sample size of 2. She sounds rather lopsided.

Calypso Facto said...

Running point taken, MKE. Also, re: women don't get bigger boobs for their husbands, I think that's often proven by the women getting the work done AFTER divorce.

ScottM: good luck on the V-Rod (my favorite is the Muscle model). Good deals in a couple months!

wv: copsyo. My brother the policeman.

Fred4Pres said...

Titus, did you get "first contact" from some carney worker? You can tell us. You are in a safe place.

sysadmn said...

Given that implants aren't a forever thing, you'll get to change your mind every 10-15 years anyway.

I'd be all for a breast reduction (ha only six months post delivery) if it didn't have the same effects.
My guess is our bodies know what they're doing most of the time and we should just leave it that way.

caradoc said...

It's almost a certainty that Spelling's doctor told her about the milk issue -- one of the very first questions they will ask is if you're planning on having children. She probably just didn't pay attention, and it's always easier to blame someone else. Even if the doc didn't mention it just a little research would have found it out.

And Richards "was vulnerable" because she was making a movie? And didn't research her doc. It seems like both of these morons just want to dodge their own mistakes.

Oh, and the boobs have a limited lifetime. You know that going in, that you'll have to have them reworked at a later date.

Marshal said...

"Well I got my boobs done in my early 20's and if I had known it would or could possibly impact production of milk, I would never had had them done,"

I wonder what IQ is the threshold to suspect breast implants could interfere with milk production? Maybe 60?

Already has kids, so the gene pool's polluted.

Women who are insecure about their bodies need to see one of Trey's colleagues; no surgeon can fix their problems.
