    Yes, I had ____ (share if you want!)

    No, but I want to.

    No, and I never would

    I had plastic surgery and I am happy with my result.

    I had plastic surgery and regret it.

    It matters if there’s also a practical reason to it – I can’t say never because…what if I were disfigured in an accident? Assuming the risks were acceptable to me, I might undergo reconstructive plastic surgery to gain a more normal appearance. But, for elective surgeries, meh.

    My stomach is all sorts of frak’ed up. I’ve lost major amounts of weight, regained major amounts of weight and lost major amounts of weight again (yes, I’m familiar with the concept of “You still have a lot of fat on your body, it’s not excess skin!” Much of it is. But I also have some stuff similar to what’s on the back of a hand – excess skin). 

    I keep it covered as much as possible, even around my husband. He very, very rarely sees my naked stomach. I usually don’t let him touch it because it bothers me. 

    I’ve thought about what I might do with it if I *ever* get to that long anticipated goal weight. Even then, I’m not entirely sure that I’d have surgery. I know myself: after that, it would probably be something else, and I’d keep going until I either ran out of money or I encountered a surgery that didn’t end up agreeing with me. 

    Shy of medically necessary reasons – no, I probably never will.

    This may seem weird and psychological, but the main reason (aside from a bad boob job being the only thing worse than small boobs) is that I don’t want to send my future kids some weird message about not being comfortable in their own skin! I feel like it would wrack any credibility I would have in that arena. Weird. Sorry.

    I voted for “No, but I want to,” but I really mean, “No, but I would consider it seriously as I age.”

    I am fairly certain I’ll get a little bit of Botox in my forehead, though I’ll leave my smile lines alone (because smiling’s my favorite!). And I’d definitely consider a breast lift after babies/breastfeeding, etc, if we have enough money that I wouldn’t feel like I’m depriving my kids’ college funds, lol. I love my boobies and I don’t want them down to my waist!

    I probably would never do lipo, but DAMN some of my sorority sisters used to get it, and they looked SO GOOD afterward. Lol.

    @TGold:  If you don’t mind my asking, how tall are you? I’m so curious how petite one would need to be to feel that limb lengthening surgery would be useful!

    I don’t want any now, but after I have kids I would so get a breast lift if I needed it.

    I would like to, but I’m a chicken shit. I’d definitely get boobs.

    I want a breast reduction!!  I seriously considered it 5 or 10 years ago, but decided to wait until after having kids.

    I’ve flirted with the idea of getting laser hair removal, but then I think that the money could go somewhere actually useful. I could donate it, invest it, or even go on a great trip. That being said, i’m pretty broke right now to even consider it. That would be the only procedure I might consider though. I’m happy with everything else. 🙂

    No, but I don’t judge those who do.  I may change my mind if something goes awry with my body and I suddenly want to fix it… But I don’t think I would ever get anything done.

    I had a boob reduction/lift. Best decision ever.

    I am not considering having any more done until I’m a lot older.. unless my boobs go back or something after I have a kid, then I’d get another reduction.

    I don’t get people who get addicted to plastic surgery. IT HURTS!! Recovery is a bitch and my procedure wasn’t exactly difficult so I can’t imagine how some people get even more invasive procedures… over and over. Ouch.

    @NauticalDisaster:  That’s awesome! It’s funny how you describe exactly how I felt before my reduction. I guess we now both have normal sized boobs and are happier for it lol.

    For myself I would never consider it. There are things I don’t love about my body, my boobs are saggy and my inner thighs are saggy. I lost a bunch of weight and with all the fat gone not everything bounced back to its original position, lol. But I still love my body and I’m not self conscious about it, so it’s really not worth the money or risks for me. I can understand why other people do it though. When you’re extremely self concious it can be crippling. I felt that way when I was overweight so I did something about it. If it’s someone’s breasts, nose, or any other part making them feel that way I don’t think cosmetic surgery is a bad solution, as long as they understand the risks involved.
