I’M shocked the boob job is 60.
It’s almost become a standard procedure – anyone unhappy with their breasts will “get them done”.

It has, no doubt, revived and reshaped women’s bodies and, perhaps more importantly, their image of themselves.
I understand how debilitating it can be to have a body part that has blighted aspects of your life.
After enduring my boobs during puberty and childbirth, at 41 I had them reduced.
It was my best ever decision.
I’m not here to pour scorn on those women who have chosen to have bigger breasts, but I wonder if we haven’t created a monster in our pursuit of perfection.
I think of the many women who regret having made theirs so big.
I think of the next generation of women who carry the burden of breast perfection.
I think of all the men who have come to presume every woman to have perfectly shaped, pert knockers.
And I think how this often first foray into cosmetic surgery may lead some women to alter everything about them that they don’t like.
