Anyone else thinkign of lipo?  I seriously considered it, but my Fiance and my best friend (who is in Med school) both didn’t really support the idea.  Then I read that article that someone posted on here, that the fat just moves to another part of your body.  Anyone else find that to be true?

@MrsDulce: I used to work for a laser hair removal company! I got to have whatever free treatments I wanted. I did my legs, but I got fired before my final treatment so now I have to shave about once a week.  it is a really nice thing to not have to shave so often.

also, after the wedding, I’ve been thinking of getting temporary micropigmentation for my eyebrows! I hate darkening my eyebrows every single day. I know it sounds weird (like something only old ladies do), but if you get it done at a fancy salon, they can make it look really subtle- really soft and light like if you used a powder. also, there is a new kind that only lasts about a year– I’d definitely get that kind. but no way do I want to mess around with that until after the wedding, just in case. LOL!!

@TheFutureMrsLamkin: you are close. when you gain weight, there is not an adding of fat cells. instead, when you gain weight, existing fat cells grow larger, and when you lose weight, they shrink. once fat cells are removed, you can’t really gain much in that particular spot any more.

however, if you have lipo and you don’t watch your diet, that growth has to happen somewhere! so you can end up growing larger in a different part of your body– sometimes in a spot that you didn’t gain weight in before! so if you got stomach lipo, maybe you will begin to gain weight in your thighs or arms insetad.

also, lipo can make that area feel unnaturally hard. but I wonder if the newer techniques have improved that?

@The FutureMrsLamkin – I’m in south jersey too!  would you mind pm-ing me the doctor?

I would LOVE to have a breast augmentation, but FH is 100% against it.  He says he loves me the way God made me, and wouldn’t want me to change.  I recently had a breast biopsy, and asked them about doing implants, but they said they wouldn’t recommend it for me.  Now that my biopsy confirmed that it was benign, and now that I have a wicked scar from the lumpectomy, I would love an augmentation even more. 

I have previously had a septoplasty for a REALLY badly deviated septum, and I had hoped that it would fix my crooked nose, but it didn’t.  Still crooked.

Other than that, I’d love to have some botox or SOMETHING to get rid of the “11” wrinkle in between my eyebrows.  I’m only 30 and they’re already getting really bad!

@TheFutureMrsLamkin: I had a breast augmentation a couple years ago (small B to a full D- love them!) If I could give you any advice it would be to follow your surgeon’s post-op instructions to a “T”! I have a fairly small ribcage (but big hips so I think I look proportional now) and I didn’t massage my girls as much as I was told to. Also, I didn’t take the vitamin E I was told to (it’s supposed to soften skin and muscles and help them to stretch) so one of my implants never fully dropped. It doesn’t look awful, but it’s semi-noticeable in strapless shirts/dresses (and my wedding dress is a strapless sweetheart!). I went in a couple of weeks ago to have it fixed and it is still sitting high! So now my surgeon and I are doing everything we can to get my pec muscle to release the implant enough to drop into the pocket that my surgeon re-opened. It’s a pain in the a**! She knows my wedding is in September so she promises me it will be fixed by then, but this is just one more thing I am having to worry about. I’m sure you will be fine, I just wanted to give you a heads up because I wonder if I could have avoided this whole thing had I known just how important the post-op instructions are. Good luck, I know you will love your results! 🙂

@Tunacupcakes: I had a rhinoplasty 6 weeks ago, and it was the best decision I ever made!!  I am getting married in October, and my PS said the swelling will continue to go down until right about then. (that will put me at about 6 months post-op – even though it already looks fantastic!) Just make sure you give yourself plenty of time to recover and “de-swell”.  Please feel free to message me with any questions!!

I always said I would never get a boob job but that was back when I liked my boobs, lol. I was a small/med C cup before I got pregnant. That was perfect on my body. I am small framed, 110 lbs so they looked great on my body. When I got pregnant they went up to a Dear Daughter, it was ridiculous. Breastfeeding killed my boobs. I am now an A cup, saggy with wrinkles. I lost about 10 lbs and haven’t been able to gain it back. I keep hoping my boobs will come back if I gain weight. Fiance says just accept that they’re gone and get implants. I’m seriously considering it but it obviously won’t be before the wedding. I also don’t know if we’ll have another child and would wait till after that. I would only go back up to a C cup but I’m still concerned my boobs may come back and then I’d be ridiculous huge. It’s a big decision.

I would like to get a reduction. Big boobs may seem attractive, but the back problems are not. I’m a 42DDD and while I love my girls, I would love to be a D cup.

@TheFutureMrsLamkin: Cool! I guess most of my fear is that once he files some of it down, I can’t get it back!? what if I hate it!? haha

@Miss Tattoo: One of my Aunts had a reduction (A LONG time ago) and even at that time, medically, everything, she still said it was the best decision she’s ever made (and she still has big ones!). So with the advances in medical science and procedures, I’m sure it’s even better. She was totally 100% happy with it, and the release from her back was amazing!

Apparently the tip starts to droop creating a witchy effect

After the plastic surgeon told me this about noses I was like “SIGN ME UP

@allisonreynolds7: Oh wow! I may have too sometime! Finding a plastic surgeon is an overwhelming task.

I’ve tried joining a plastic surgery forum…but it is such a slow forum I only got one reply and the person said they wouldn’t do much if anything. lol

I’m like, how is that helpful!?  I have no $$$$ for surgery right now, but I want to know about how much I need to save up. I’m thinking….2-3 years I’ll get my surgery. I won’t be getting married for about 5-6 years anyway, so plenty of time to get that settled.

I’m glad it worked out for you!
