Title: Belly implant


joanne - November 26, 2008 03:56 PM (GMT)
Just a thought girls. Breast implants are common place these days but I wonder if the doctors could do a tummy implant. Could be pregnant for ever.

Faints with the thought, Love Jo

That would be really cool. I'm not 100% sure the repercussions of a belly implant (at least medically), but cool nonetheless. Go find a plastic surgeon and see what they think...

Yeah...wouldn't that really...compromise some vital organs and stuff? And I'd worry about ruptures when handled roughly (you know what I mean). I don't know. Very interesting idea, though.

Interesting to see that I wasn't alone in musing about this.

While it would be a fringe form of body modification, that doesn't make it unique in that regard. For instance:
- tattoos of varying size, detail, and location
- dental implants to create fangs
- split tongues to create a lizard-like appearance
- cosmetic surgery to make the face look feline
- piercings in unusual locations

It isn't that much of a stretch (no pun intended) to imagine other forms of cosmetic surgery to represent alternate forms of ideal beauty.

I imagine the health concerns would be similar to those with breast implants. Additional factors being greater volume/weight and location near organs and such.

My thoughts are that the implant would need to engineered to grow steadily like a real pregnancy. That way, like the expansion of the womb, the internal organs would move to the positions they take up during a normal pregnancy. Perhaps the implant could be made of 'silly string' which some of the big boob models have used, Chelsea Charms is one. Her boobs are continually growing and she has fluid drained from them to control their size. Just imagine slowly growing a triplet tummy and then being able to keep it. The braver girls could try quints or more.

Oh my!!

Love Jo :o :huh:

That's a really great idea jo! I just wish the medical community could already be onto something like this and past the 'experimental stage' so that this is safe, perhaps one day <sigh>

Even though this is two years old...
I'm so obsessed with a belly implant right now. I'm seeing cosmetic surgeons this week relating to a tummy tuck I'm contemplating, and I'm going to take a picture with me of my favorite belly and say, "I want one of these."
What I just figured out is that it won't be a cosmetic procedure. To take in a belly implant, I would need a reverse C-section. That's not a subcutaneous procedure. That's major surgery. But I would so love one...
And on that subject, what I imagine isn't a belly implant that would grow. I'd be happy to start with a medium-sized belly and have a new implant put in a few years later. I'd build to the belly I wanted to keep... and be pregnant forever.
Can't I dream?

pregjenn - October 20, 2010 11:15 PM (GMT)
If I could find a safe way of doing this, I'd be in the doctor's office first thing the next day! lol

Jenn, if I can find somebody that will do this, I'll make sure you hear about it. I've only just met you folks, but this would be worth picking a city and throwing a huge party. Could you dig it?

Now that I know what I'm looking for, I'm going to look harder. I have friends in Mexico; I'd be willing to go South of the Border to have this done. I've heard that Singapore has the best boobs in the world; Maybe somebody there would do it. For sure somebody in Thailand or China would. It's money, right?

I really don't know what will come of this fantasy. But where I am right now, today, I want it badly. There would be problems; I don't think I care.

Every time I fly I'd have to supply a medical letter saying it's safe for me. Cruise ships don't want you to be over 25 weeks when you cruise with them. And what do I tell people when I've had the same awesome belly leading me down hallways for more than a year?

I don't care. This would be incredible.

PrettyPregnantMaria - October 22, 2010 12:01 PM (GMT)
An addendum. Today's Friday. I have a <i>perfect day</i> yesterday. I was telling my friends that "this is the belly I want forever." Some gagged. Some just smiled; "Really?"

Yup. Really.

So, today I'm wearing a top and pants. I tried on several tops last night, and even with no belly padding at all these tops make me look pregnant. I thought I'd wear no padding today, but I couldn't do it. I'm wearing the same padding I wore yesterday, and I have the same belly I had yesterday, the belly I want forever.

And so, to the decision. I'm going to wear my belly to see my plastic surgeon. I'm going to walk in deliciously plump and pregnant, and sit down with him and say, "This is what I want. Get rid of my handles. Fix <this and that> and refresh my boobs. But this belly is what I really want. How can we do this?"

And I'll see. I'm so excited, and I'm looking forward to another perfect day, and a perfect weekend, too.

Big Belly Hugs

Awwww :D

Forever pregnant, mmmmmmm, sounds so nice. You want this so bad, I hope there's some way it can happen for you hun. You're practically living out my fantasy already, wearing maternity clothes everyday (so cute! I LOVE maternity clothes) and going everywhere as a totally adorable pregnant girl. I think you're awesome!

Me and a friend fantasized a time or two about if they could create some kind of intra-uterine device, a bladder or something, that could be gradually (over time) inflated and expanded until we were big and pregnant looking and could then just leave it in place so that we could be pregnant forever. A girl can dream, can't she? ;)

PrettyPregnantMaria - October 22, 2010 05:14 PM (GMT)
Having a belly that grows, slowly, completely and to a certain place and staying there? Wow, I don't think it could be more fantastic.

But where I am right now, I'm going to either wear this padding for a long time, or I'm going to get somebody to make it so.

Everybody has said it, I look so beautiful today. I look good in pants. my top is so cute. And is that a matter of having a huge belly? No. I have a huge belly but that's incidental.

And I just love that. I can't wait to see what the surgeon says.

It's not a surprise that the cosmetic surgeon said no. He can't and won't do it. So for the time being, no belly implant.

I am going to proceed with the tummy-tuck and the other procedures we discussed. I have to get labs done, but I could see the first week in November. Exciting stuff, folks.

The deal is that I want to get measured and order dresses. I can't do that until I have my new size. You can see the dresses I want on my blog MyFakePregnancy

I tried them on in a bridal shop, but they had neither my size nor maternity in stock. But they're awesome dresses.

So I go to work with the same padding I had last week, and no real opportunity to have an implant in my plan. I have other ideas. I'll explain when I get there.

joanne - October 25, 2010 03:08 PM (GMT)
What a pity your surgeon wasn't cooperative Maria. Still keep trying. I love your blog, it's great reading

Love Joanne

AmberJune - October 26, 2010 01:33 AM (GMT)
I'm sorry it didn't work out for you. Is it possible that another doctor would do it?

Amber

PrettyPregnantMaria - October 26, 2010 12:18 PM (GMT)
I don't think it's going to happen in the U.S. The AMA has things to say about it, and a doctor would be taking a risk.

I'm considering friends in Mexico who know doctors. I don't know where that will go. I sort have a lot to do between now and next summer, so I'm going to have to move focus.

Hi Maria:

I know this is a rather old topic, but allow me to surface it again...

I think the medical establishment in this country is WAAAAAY too male-oriented. They can get their Viagra, their Cialis, their tattoos, etc etc...but there MUST be some way that a woman's belly can be made to be, well, what she likes it...

Our wombs are made to expand. The uterine muscles are made that way. So, doesn't it make sense that we should be able to carry babies or balloons or jelly or whatever if we wish? How come HE can get Viagra and a tattoo, and I can't get a beautiful belly????

Good luck...tell me if you find a Dr. that will work with you...I'll tell him/her you drummed up some business! :lol:

I would like to have some sort of "jelly injection" (thru my os and not cut open....don't like the idea of scarring). Not sure if this is possible, but hey, if they are stupid enough to clone sheep, they're smart enough to give this old cow a belly-job! :lol: :lol:

HUGE belly hugs...

To be fair, viagra and a very-invasive surgery are quite different things!

Women go through a lot of hormonal changes during pregnancy that make everything possible. Having a uterus in that way could be pretty serious (bad serious) without those hormones.

It's something of a shame that people are restricted from doing very invasive surgeries, even if they really want it (see sex changes in America). But it's also not just a walk in the park.




Preg_Belly - October 13, 2011 11:02 PM (GMT)
Even if you couldn't leave a full-term size pregnant belly implant inside forever, you could have one that can grow to full size during 40 weeks, using a dense gel, and also be allowed to shrink back down when needed. (Sort of what joanne said, to allow the internal organs to move.)

And this dynamic implant would allow for taking breaks to relieve strain, and easy re-adjustment of size.

In short, if this implant is to become reality, it has to be dynamic, in one way or another, since a dynamic implant has benefits that should be enough to convince a surgeon who would otherwise say no.

pregjenn - October 14, 2011 04:57 PM (GMT)
Preg_Belly,

I totally know what you mean by dynamic, a really good synthetic implant would be even better if you could control the size. When I was young, I used to dream of having a pregnant belly that could shrink and grow as needed.

AmberJune - October 15, 2011 01:16 AM (GMT)
With all this talk of growing and shrinking, I wonder if they make breast implants that do the same thing. Is the technology there to make something similar for the belly?

Amber

Preg_Belly - October 16, 2011 11:16 PM (GMT)
The technology is definitely there to work with, at least with breast implants.

It only has to be researched upon further with belly implants in mind, especially when considering that internal organs need time to adjust when changing the size of the implant, to determine at what rates the implant can be filled safely, as well as the long term effects (which is not to say that long term effects would be a problem with a dynamic implant, since you could always drain it).

Also, the best way to fill or empty the implant has to be found.

I don't think it would take that long to become reality.
Someone could be working on it right now. I hope. ;)
