. . .So, Long-Made-Short, the answer is a resounding "yes" to the question of whether, or not, there is something wrong with enhancements!
Well... this conclusion is primarily an archaic, male chauvinistic perspective circa the late 20th/early 21st century. It doesn't take into account whether a woman has the surgery done for medical or esthetic reasons, or if it's performed because it gives her more confidence in herself or because she thinks it makes her look better. With actresses especially, it can be a deciding factor on whether they get a role.

It's basically no different than men taking steroids to improve their physique, or Viagra or other specialized methods to either enhance "performance" or other areas of endowment.

By 22nd or 24th century standards, the procedure may become sophisticated enough that there wouldn't be any noticeable physical or tactile difference.
