Hello again you beautiful lot! So it's that time again, and I thought that today I would talk about cosmetic surgery, my main focus being the boob job as this has become a very sought after procedure, especially in very young women across the world. I'd just like to point out that I'm aware that a lot of people have strong views on this subject and this post isn't meant to offend anyone, it's purely my personal opinions with a little info on the topic! So, what is the hype all about? And does anyone really think about the dangers? Here are my views on the subject!
Have you ever had any cosmetic surgery?
No, none at all!
Would you ever consider a boob job?
At a not particularly large size 32B chest I always used to wonder what it would be like to get a breast enlargement! But then after a lot of hard-thinking about it I decided I could never go through with such a big change to my body. As long as I'm comfortable I don't feel the need to put myself through such a big operation just to have men leer at my chest! I'm also very slim and petite in build so to get a big pair of fake jubblies stuck on to me would surely make me topple over and cause pretty bad back problems! (not appealing!) At the end of the day the breast, or it's actual name, the mammary gland is primarily intended for the feeding of babies after all! I understand that it's nice to have that little extra confidence when it comes to these things, but I now hold my smaller sized chest up with pride!
If you could have anything changed, what would it be and why?
There is one one thing that I used to want to have changed and that was my ears! I really wanted to have them pinned back! They are ever so slightly stuck out and I never used to wear my hair up from fear that someone would insult them! But since then I've grown up a lot and realised they're not that bad! And if someone laughs and doesn't like them, so what? It's my body after all, and why should I care if a stranger doesn't like something about my appearance?!
Why do you think so many young girls are getting this procedure?
I think that as this has become such a popular procedure to have done that they see no harm or danger in it. I also think that the media has a lot to answer for! Television programmes like The Only Way Is Essex where everyone gets a boob job like it's just as normal as popping to the dentist for a check up! Even in music videos you'll see women shaking their massive fake baps about! I think that if it's something you really want and you've thought about it for a long time & you also know all the risks then it's completely fine! But I think so many young girls see their friends or people on tv get this done and think they should too! Obviously it's completely up to the individual and I understand that some people can get really down and even depressed about the size of their chest, but I do think it's not something that should be taken lightly. Make sure it's definitely something you want before going ahead with it!

Do you think that people can ever really be happy with their own bodies without the need for plastic surgery?
Of course! I don't want to preach at anyone who has or is considering cosmetic surgery, but I do think over time you can learn to accept your body for how it is and even be happy with it! I know some people don't see plastic surgery as a big deal and if this is you that's fine, I hope you are happy with the changes you've made or are going to make. But personally I think I'd rather just keep my body the way it is without filling it full of silicone! Just look at celebrities such as Keira Knightley, who still looks beautiful and elegant without the need for plastic surgery!

Now once again I've done a little research for you lovelies and here are a few things to know whilst considering getting a breast enlargement!
How old do you have to be to have to be to have a boob job in the UK?
You have to be eighteen!
What are the risks and dangers of having a breast enlargement?
Now I'm sure most of you have heard about the PIP breast implant scandal of last year! If not a french company used sub-standard silicone gel for the implants which caused many to rupture, with over 300,000 women affected by this! So always make sure you know what you're getting put in to your body and make sure to discuss this with your doctor/surgeon beforehand! Another thing is that breast implants usually have to be replaced every 10 years, so before you think it'll just be one operation, it won't! Another danger of having breast implants is the risk of rupture or tear in the implant which could result in leakage which can then result in partial or complete collapse of the implant! Scary stuff eh?

What are the pros of this procedure?
The biggest pro of having a breast enlargement (given that you want one!) is a massive boost in confidence! A lot of women have said that after having a boob job they have felt happier, more attractive and that clothes appear more flattering. So if you think getting this procedure done will change your life for the better then go for it! It's your body after all!
As I've said before this post isn't made to offend anyone or preach at them for what they want to do to their body, just my personal views and to help people know more about the risks! So what are you guys views on cosmetic surgery? Let me know! :)
