@musician32992: I did it strictly for vanity and no other reason, I admit! I did it as a gift to myself and it made me happy to do it.
However, I already had healthy self-esteem and was very happy before that, anyway, that wasn’t an issue. Good plastic surgeons (mine was spectacular, and highly accredited) will make sure of all the psychological factors being right before agreeing to any cosmetic surgery. If he doesn’t do a lot of questioning, don’t let him work on you.

I’m currently losing weight. Being 280-300 lb. for so long at 5’2″ has taken its toll and I know I’m going to have loose skin no matter how slow I lose or how much I tone. It’s inevitable. So I’m planning on getting surgery to remove loose skin down the road.

So honestly do the boobies really always look bad post breast feeding??? Do you think it matters at what age you got pregnant?

@bklynbridetobe: Thanks! 🙂
Stopping there, lol. I’m not planning to have anything else done, probably ever.

Surgery in general freaks me out and I don’t have any flaws that I feel strongly enough about to fix. But there have been a few times where I wondered about getting a breast lift down the road. I have big boobs for a small girl and they’re HEAVY so with age, childbirth, weight gain etc I know they’re going to get saggy and floppy. Lol that’s the main thing I’ve thought about but I’m not convinced I would ever truly do it.

@musician32992: I guess so. It is sad to me that people get hung up on aspects of their perfectly sound and functional bodies to the point that they can’t be happy without taking drastic action to change them, but I know it’s not as simple as just suggesting that a person “get over it.” There’s a lot of personal and societal baggage that gets heaped on us and can be really hard to shake off.
Our bodies are awesome. They turn food into thoughts, get us where we need to go, make and feed new people, bring us amazing pleasure… There’s a lot to love and feel positive about.

I think minor things are totally fine if you have something that bothers you. The only time I have an issue with plastic surgery is if the person is doing it to chase away general low self esteem (ie: I’m ugly, I wan’t to look like Demi Moore). If it is to enhance your natural beauty more power to ya!
I can’t wait til I can laser off my spider veins and laser off all of my arm hair (yep, hairy arm girl here!). I would also get a breast lift after children, and probably facial fillers. Preventative maintenance is so much cheaper so I use great skin care and wear a supportive bra 😉

@musician32992: I probably won’t get plastic surgery because I’m afraid and also Darling Husband hates it, but I just wanted to offer double chin support, haha. I have one too and I hate it! It’s the part of my body I’m most insecure about. Thanks a lot, dad!

@musician32992: Do what makes you happy. I started when I was about 19 and haven’t looked back: I will continue to have procedures as I see fit.

@Sunfire: ok wow, your pictures are making me reconsider my aforementioned fears, you look great! What exactly did they do, if you don’t mind me asking? Was it like liposuction under there or something?

I don’t really have strong feelings about it one way or the other. I suppose I’d consider getting something relatively minor done down the road if I really wasn’t happy with my body after kids, etc., but I have no real complaints right now. I’ve known a couple of people who have got things done (facelifts, for example) and they seemed very happy with the results.

I would; however I’m a horrible patient & can’t take much when it comes to the medical field. Although, my husband would be livid.

I would never have plastic surgery except as a form of reconstruction after a serious illness like cancer. I’ve never had surgery and I would like to keep it that way.
