I know you’ve answered questions about boobs before, but I want to know about fake boobs. I’m thinking of getting a boob job. What do you guys really think about fake boobs? Do they think they’re weird? Have you ever felt them or seen them? Were you grossed out?
I have seen fake boobs. I have felt fake boobs. And I have to admit, I thought they were great!
Although some guys would prefer the real deal to silicone no matter what the size, I also know plenty who are just as content with well-done implants. And a smaller number in the “bigger is better” camp absolutely love augmented breasts. Ultimately, real or fake, guys just love boobs in general.
However, I do also know of some boob jobs through friends, the news, or the occasional adult film (hey, it just happened to be playing when I walked in…) that are not so fantastic. And those can be…problematic. So if you do decide to go for it, there are two things I can recommend from the male perspective:
1) Choose a size appropriate for your body type (i.e. if you’re 5 feet tall and 100 pounds, those double F’s you’re considering may be confused for basketballs attempting to strangle you).
2) Splurge and go to a highly skilled plastic surgeon. You don’t want to run the risk of ending up with something that looks especially unnatural, or, worse – misshapen.
As for the decision itself, I think you need to think hard and ask yourself some questions. Are you doing this for yourself, or to impress and attract guys? If you’re correcting a malformation, or feel that the ability to fill an A cup will make a huge difference in your self-confidence, then I don’t see why you shouldn’t go for it. But breast augmentation is a procedure you should undertake only if it’s something that you really want. Don’t worry what guys will think – especially because to the ones worthy of dating you, it won’t matter much either way!
