MyFreeImplants is a website based on the social networking model.[1] The service purports to be an alternative to traditional cosmetic surgery financing methods. Models participate on the website with the main goal of raising money to fund a breast augmentation procedure through online donations.

The site has been criticised by professional organizations including the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS) for tasteless marketing and trivializing a significant surgical procedure.[2]

On 11 January 2009 a program was broadcast on the UK channel Virgin 1 called 100 Men own my breasts which predominantly featured the website.
