"That is such a terrifying surgery. Knowing that your breasts will continuously fill up with fluid forever..."

"... simply because your body is internally so irritated, they could grow to different sizes, get so big that daily life is severely impacted, and that the only way to stop it is to cut off your boobs completely. I can’t even imagine the kind of issues someone has to be suffering from to consider that to be a good decision. I’m fine with people getting their boobs as big as they want, but the irreversible, uncontrollable nature of string implants are a whole other level of danger and destruction for the sake of 'beauty.'"

From the subreddit "botched surgeries." I had never heard of this — string implants.

There's some pretty gross self-directed, doctor-provided mutilation going on there. Yikes. People, people, people.

Oh yeah, the string implants are scary. I can't imagine that anyone is still using them. Some of the alliteratively named actresses that got them in the 90s are still around.

(I went to lookup youtube videos of 'girls rubbing balloons together' and fell down a rabbit hole.)

Way back, I saw some girls that had had silicone injections. Some were Japanese girls that had it done in the 50s during the Occupation,

Bad results and these will be , too.

I have never heard of this either and now having visited the link and read a little bit about it will say, once again, that some people a friggin' nuts.

Honestly, those implants are just gross. They look more like a couple of out of control tumors or cysts rather than breasts. While I'm generally opposed to most cosmetic surgery, outside of reconstructive surgery for injuries, I don't mind if people want to touch themselves up a little. But there has to be point where the plastic surgeon isn't just helping someone touch up a little and is feeding into a person's body dysmorphia.

These women are mentally ill.

I'm waiting for rhhardin's comment, should be a doozy.

Cable tv show BOTCHED frequently has women with boobs the size of volley balls. Lip injections to match.

sting implants? it looks like full size hot air balloon implants.

JAORE said...

I pity the generations that will seldom see the natural beauty of perfectly formed, often "small", breasts rather than the grapefruit under cellophane look.

Sometimes, ladies, less is much more.

These ladies are never getting trapped on a deserted island, though.

We are not just talking “daddy issues” we are talking great great granddaddy issues.

Jupiter said...

Meh. Compared to getting your dick cut off, this is minor shit. Hell, compared to what some body-builders do with steroids, this is minor shit. It does seem like a strange thing to want to do.

Iman said...

I must confess... big titties make me weak in the knees, but only natural, no plastics puhleeze.

No, that isn't 100% true. Nearly all women's breasts do, but again, only natural. There's nothing sexy about those with implants, IMHO.

Iman said...

give me big titties
Lord, I misspoke, have mercy
not me, just like 'em

Did anyone ever read Fanny Burney's detailed description of her double mastectomy back in the early 19th century. Women were a lot tougher back then. Just when she thought it was over, they scraped her bones to make sure they got it all. She was awake and screaming for the entire procedure. She lived for many years after. Maybe they got it all. Maybe it was a procedure she didn't need......People have suffered for dumber causes than vanity. I went to dentists sixty years ago. It was pretty hideous on occasion, and we're talking about saving a bicuspid, not enhancing my sex appeal.

Iman, that’s the first time one of your comments went perfectly with your avatar.

This post so soon after the “big clock” post... Hmmm....

Ew is right

mockturtle said...

I won't even read about stuff like that. Yuck!

I should have known the wiki link was NSFW. *Should* have.

I put these women in the same box as tattooed women. These women just fill up the box faster.
