That's what Michelle Martin did. For years, the 19-year-old says she was teased for having a small chest. "People were just mean, Martin said. " Like, I felt ugly. I felt, like, undesirable."

Martin said her mother told her repeatedly she didn't need a breast augmentation, but Martin thought otherwise. And last week, she traded in her A cup bras for D size breasts.

Martin said the painful recovery and scars from the surgery were a small price to pay to make up for the scars left by years of teasing and feelings of inadequacy. She said she "absolutely" feels prettier.

"This was just something to make me feel better. To make me happy. To make me feel like a beautiful woman".
