i guess it may be common in sg but kept to a low key.
i know of ppl as young as 16 who went thru cosmetic surgery too.
just make sure u know the consequences after surgery.
the trauma of ppl lookin at u diff and saying , "hey did u went surgery?"

    21yrs old is a legal age to make a decision for oneself. U should consider thoroughly. Since your doctor had given u an advice, u should listen to her as she may be right that u really look good without surgery. I always believe in side effects on surgery & its just the matter of time for it to occur. Natural is the beauty. There is this phrase "on the earth, there is no ugly girl just lazy girl." Don't be despair with any part of your face, be confident in yourself. Appreciate the gene your parent pass on to you. :)

hey ya....i have to agree with tat, girl.. beauty is really superficial and what really matters to me is the inner beauty.. from a guy's perspective, yes, obviously first impressions come from the looks, face boobs and all.. but after some time, that's jus tat. don u think? wat matters in the long run is how u carry yourself and how u present urself.. instead of goin under the knife, probably u can choose to dress better and more flashy? if any of my frens ask bout plastic surgery, i'd give this advice, but the decision's still yours pal. if ure really worried bout boob size, i think not many ladies are fortunate enough to be well endowed, and even fewer are fortunate to be curvaceous. most models (not that all are TAT pretty) too have small chests.. hope tis will be of some help to you.. hey. cheer up gal! :)

I agreed with you but have you considered for long run? Is it a necessity? I guess every human being are not born to be "perfect". We are always discontented with certain aspects of ourself. But think again we are fortunate to be born healthy & with pleasant looks. Like you, i've considered to do something with my eye (make it bigger). But again, i gave up this thought. As i think of what if i regretted after its done or not as perfect as i want it to be etc.... But ultimately, the decision still lies on you. If you think you really need it, just go for it.. but without any regrets in future.

I went through BA and went through pregnancy. I had a had time trying to breastfeed my baby. I didnt dare to massage the breast worrying that the implant will move. I think u should consider after pregnancy or don't do it. I regretted it and wish to remove it now after spending 20000 with dr hung, for only less than 2 years. My had very bad mothers blue due to the implants. Imagining going through the long period of recovery after removing them frightens me but I justvwant to be the real me. Pls do more research on BA, don't end up like me. Read on capsular contractures, ruptures and etc before u really decide.

@winnielee, your advise is very very good indeed. Although I am a man, an old man in the late fifties, I cannot comprehend the need to go for plastic surgery . Beauty is only skin deep. I can understand women wanting to go for it but I have seen more and more men doing it. It really blow my mind away. I fail to comprehend the needs to do this.
IMHO, go and see the shrink first before you go under the knife , no matter how small the surgery is.
You may never know it is all in your head. Take it slow, you may never know where you end up for better or worse.

Well my mom had surgery, also plastic surgery but only because she had breastcancer. she had had her breast amputated so she had let reconstructed one with plastic surgery, and she said that she doesn't understand people who do things like that just because they think they're not pretty enough because there breasts aren't that big enough or just hang a little to much because.she told me that it hurts so badly she would never ever do it again under no curcumstances, I think you should only do something like that if you're really desperate or sad about the way you look and if you do so you should do it for yourself and not because for what other people would think about you. do not change for somebody else thats just stupid and you can avoid the pain en use the money for something more important than lifting your breast :)

I had a bad experience with Dr M. Huang. Despite paying 10k for permanent filler. The result is disappointing and felt he gave patient a false promise. The permanent filler barely last 2yr.

Only keep charging when u go back for consuktation. And kind of brush you off. Thus given a choice. I will never recommend him to any of my friends.

Yeah kinda of CON, SUCK and STATION.

Look, beauty is only skin deep. It is not that you have cancerous or maglinant or even benign skin or organs that required major ops and part of it is to go for facial reconstruction or PS after the major ops.
Most of the time people opted for PS due to insecurity , peer pressure and self esteem. Having said that , a good talk with the shrink will be the first step of many steps. Once you go under the knife, it is irreversible, physically and mentally.
Have you compare other surgeons before you go and see him. If you have and comfortable with him then you have made a poor choice. If you have not done that before you take the plunge then you are committing suicide.
