The PIP breast implant scandal grumbles on. The company that manufactured these implants has now gone out of business, so that door is closed for any affected lady seeking redress. The good news is that those who paid for their implants with a credit card may be able to obtain compensation from their credit card company under the consumer credit act.
The thought has occurred to me that these ladies chose to undergo unnecessary surgery for reasons not related to their health, and that a degree of personal responsibility is perhaps not inappropriate.
Why do women seek out this procedure? It would be tempting to think that it is to make themselves more alluring to us males but this does not seem to be the case. Surveys have shown that those who have breast augmentation are motivated mostly by reasons of self esteem, and what we blokes think is largely irrelevant. Nor are males particularly interested in boobs that have been enhanced and it seems to be the case that men prefer the natural, and are happy with whatever their lady happens to have.
Perhaps the idea that men are totally obsessed with ladies’ chests is a misperception, a misunderstanding.
