i voted no, even though i get botox. but it’s for medical reasons, migraines. i started it when i was 20, i’m now 26, i’m not too worried about wrinkles yet. and while i know i’m going to be sad about aging, as i’m already not happy about my age, i’m going to deal with it. it helps to have a fi that makes comments such as “you’re not going to get fake eye lashes for our wedding are you?” and “you’re not getting fake nail’s are you? i don’t want you to be fake.”

I actually have some deformities in my shoulders and around my rib cage from my bra straps and the weight from my “tomatoes” is causing nerve damage in my neck and back, and my shoulder blades are literally being pulled away from my back. The muscles and ligaments that hold my shoulder blades down are damaged. So, my surgery is a medical necessity, not just something to make myself look different or better. I don’t give a darn how I look, I just don’t want to have this constant ache and pain anymore.

I havent had anything done even though I have a large nose but have learned to love it and its been my trademark over the years & cant think of someone banging a hammer on my bone to reshape it – no thanks. However, I have strongly consider botox in maybe about the next five years or so (Im 29) for my “elevens” (wrinkles in between eyebrows) and would consider breast lift, smart lipo and tummy tuck after kids. But being from Miami, everyone pretty much has something done down here – pretty similar to LA but not soo extremely in the inland than in the beaches and certain circles.

Down the road several years!, i would like to get bigger breast! one is slightly bigger than the other, and i can’t stand it. It’s not too noticable but it is there. And they are a bit small, i’m a “b” and would love to be a “c” almost “d”. Fiance says they are fine the way they are! lol

I had plastic surgery done to repair my ear after a major car accident I was in several years ago.
The only thing I would consider other than that is getting a breast reduction surgery. At 34GG my size really does affect my life. It’s only for financial reasons that I haven’t actually done it.

In my family, my grandma had a facelift when she was about 55 (so this would have been 30 years ago). I never knew about it to look at her in life or pictures. My mom said the effects lasted for about 10 years and that she was always happy she’d had it done because she looked natural, only like a younger version of herself. I found this interesting because it happened before a culture of plastic surgery, and she was also in a smallish midwestern city where this wasn’t popular, so I know she did it because she really wanted it for herself. Also, four women in my family have had breast reductions because they had back pain and clothes fitting problems…all of them look totally normal now.
I am a supporter of plastic surgery if it’s something to help you look more like yourself (like getting your breasts done after having kids), or to fix something that is hurting you. I would always just want to look like the best age-appropriate version of myself, not like a Barbie doll or some fantasy thing. Right now I’ve not done anything and I’m not planning on it anytime soon, but it’s not out of the question for later.

I’m not motivated by kids/aging to ever get plastic surgery. It’s just not for me, it creeps me out. Luckily the women in my family age really well. It’s gotta be the cold weather, hah.
My mom did have reconstructive surgery after breast cancer, and if I’m ever in the position she was in, I’d likely do the same.

I had breast reduction surgery 4 years ago and I have never regretted it for one second. I did it for both cosmetic and medical reasons. Some people told me “well that’s the way God made you” but my back was killing me (I’m only 5’1″ on my tall days) and God sure didn’t make enough 32Dear Daughter bras in the world that were easy to find!
Someday if I can afford it I probably would have botox for any face wrinkles and I’d lipo pretty much anything I could.
I think it’s a personal choice and if it makes you happier than I think you should do it.

I broke my nose cheerleading during High School and 2 years later had a nose job. I had a deviated septum, so it was covered by insurance, but the surgeon also reshaped my nose so it’s a lot prettier now.
If it weren’t so expensive I would have other things done, I’m all for it!

I’m actually in the process of saving my money to get a breast augmentation before our wedding. I’ve wanted to get new boobs for a number of years now and finally said I’m going to do it. I’m almost 31 and the girls just aren’t as great as they were when I was 21 and it bugs me. I just want them a bit fuller and perkier…not going for porn style boobs. I think in Southern California it’s considered normal, it seems like every person you meet has had something done, so it’s not even a big deal. My sister lives in Indiana and freaked out when I told her I was saving for boobs.

I all for plastic surgery, but I think people take it too lightly sometimes. It’s serious, expensive, and at times, painful. I’ve had my nose fixed, and I never want to go through that again. I broke it playing basketball and had it straightened out so I could breathe. I look like the me I was meant to look like. Most people haven’t noticed it, but it made a world of difference for me mechanically and emotionally. I would consider a breast lift after children, but who knows how I will feel when that finally rolls around.

I understand that everyone has their own opinion on plastic surgery and I hope I dont get judged for saying this but I have had it. When I was 20 I had a breast augmentation. I went from a barely 32AA to a full C and it was the greatest decision I have ever made. I am comfortable in my body now (well mostly but giving up dairy queen will fix that) and I say to each their own. I will probably get them redone if needed after I have kids but thats where it stops. I don’t plan on doing anything else.
please dont judge me 🙂

I have never had surgury because I don’t really have a high threshold for pain but I have a certain part of my body which I consider to be the bane of my existence. There’s a crude way to describe it, so maybe I’ll just stick to kangaroo pouch. No matter how hard I work out or how well I eat, I can’t get rid of it! If I ever had surgury, which is doubtful, I would fix that area!

PS is a very personal decision. I personally feel that if it makes you feel better about yourself, go for it. Just be 100% aware of the commitment.
I think it’s a slippery slope though. If you just really want one thing done that’s fine. But if you’re the kind of woman that thinks everything about her body could be better, then you’re looking at a long, expensive road. My friend got a boob job a couple years back. She also goes to the tanning salon 3-4 days a week. She’s been doing this for years. I worry (not just because of skin cancer) but she is starting to look older. She’s only 27 and I already see the skin damage and wrinkles setting in. I’m pretty sure she’ll have something done plastic surgery wise to her face some time in her 30s. Or, she could just stop tanning so much.

I personally would love to have some plastic surgery done. I would love to have a boob job! I am just not happy with them and I have one that is slightly larger then the other and it is a significant almost noticable amount and I would love lipo, sigh to dream
