How much plastic surgery is too much? If you had the money and time to recover- would you ever get as many operations as Heidi Montag?
In a dream world of no pain and no money issue, here’s what I’d have done:
lipo of stomach, cheeks, and chin/neck, rhinoplasty and eye lid surgery (i have my mother and grandmother’s droopy eyes and I’m only 30!)
Would any other bees get something done before the big day?
Perhaps I’ve been watching too many Extreme Makeover (plastic surgery edition) rereuns.

I wouldn’t. I honestly just don’t like plastic surgery, but to each their own!

I don’t think that I would honestly do it. I like the way that I look when I am naturally toned and thin but not with the fat sucked out of me!

Any surgery comes with health risks, and for me, those risks just aren’t worth taking for vanity’s sake. Although I don’t like several of my body parts, I would never get plastic surgery.

idk if I would ever go through with it, but I’ve always wanted lipo of my chin/neck.

And by the way, I’m not against it. My mom had a breast reduction and a tummy tuck and she loved them!

I am totally a “to each her own” type of girl on the plastic surgery thing; I personally am not a fan of plastic surgery on the face, I really think that my face is my identity and I wouldn’t want to change it. I also am not a fan of the facial anti-aging surgeries (even though my friends are already getting them and we’re not in our 30s yet!). I might consider getting some sort of tummy procedure after I have kids though, and if I had big boobs (which I don’t) I would think about a breast lift later in life.
Just a warning about lipo: I worked with a girl who got her thighs lipoed, and now when she gains weight she gains it in the weirdest places, like her upper back … she now says she wishes she never got it!

I’ve had breast augmentation to take me from an A cup to C cup, I’m pretty happy with everything else. If someone offered me free lipo suction I wouldn’t refuse, but I’m trying to work out to get the same results for less 🙂

Maybe after we were done having children? I wouldn’t rule it out, but it’s not something I want.

For me, the only thing I would REALLY like to fix is my jawline/chin area. My chin recedes while most people’s actually lines up with their upper plate. It gives me a strange looking profile and causes me a lot of self-esteem issues 🙁
To answer your question, the pain/money issue would not be the biggest deal for me. I have actually seriously thought about trying to save up the money for it so I can get it someday. The fear factor for ME would be whether I would wake up from the anesthesia or not. The idea of going under scares me to death (ha!) and I’m afraid I would be allergic or they’d give me too much or some other CRAZY 1 in 100,000,000 chance.

I’m having breast reduction done in 6 weeks (and counting). It’s something I’ve wanted to do for a LONG time and the wedding finally made me realise that I should do this for myself now instead of putting it off for a few more years. Other than that, I don’t think I’d have anything else done. I think most things that can be lipo’d out can also be exercised out!

My great grandmother, my grandmother and my mother had the fat deposits over their eyelids removed. Their eye lids would sag over their eyes(droopy eyes). If I am next then I will definately get this done.
I would also like to get my boobs picked up after kids if I need it.
Nothing pre-wedding though.

I’m pretty happy with my body, but in a few years I plan on getting a breast augmentation. Right now I’m an A, and I’d like to be a C. If any other bees have had their breasts augmented, I’d love to hear your story and advice. I’d love a PM.

Always thought I’d never get anything done. Was even a bit against it. However, if after having children, I’m very unhappy about how my tummy looks, maybe I’ll have some work done… I train hard right now and am happy with my body and after years of struggling with body image issues, I don’t want it to change…
Since my mom gained like 90 pounds in the last 3 months of her pregnancy, following a strict diet and exercising and could do nothing about it, and was never able to get back into good shape… I figure that I might not have genetics on my side, so at least there’s surgeons! Hopefully not though.

The ONLY thing I would remotely consider is a tummy tuck if my stomach had issues returning to it’s pre-baby size. I like it the way it is now, thank you. I know I’m dreaming big, but I’d like to bounce back like Heidi Klum and I’m willing to work hard for it, so hopefully I can avoid this whole issue!
