i complain about my nose and my mom offered me money to pay for a nosejob but i declined.

i had a breast reduction, it is considered cosmetic, but it was medically necessary.

no, i probably wouldn’t have any elective surgery.  i would need a good reason to do it.

Yes, but I wouldn’t go too crazy with it. I have breast implants and LOVE them. If money wasn’t an issue, I’d probably get small lip injections and botox. I would never do lipo. Seems like such a waste of money considering you can lose the fat yourself with proper nutrition and exercise!

biancalowe8 :  I’ve had a nose job (which was primarily medically necessary, on the internal side of things but while I was under I went ahead and did the outside too). Sooo worth it! I love my new nose and I had a great plastic surgeon so it’s very natural. It’s subtle until you put me side by side with an old pre-nose job pic and then you can really tell a difference but again, it’s so natural looking.

I don’t know if I’d get anything else done…as much as I love my nose and feel it was totally worth it, the recovery is so not fun. So I don’t know that I’d willingly want to go through that with anything else.

Fuck yeah I would!

I’d get some chin lipo, then some everywhere else lipo, then i’d go up a cup size and have one of them Kardashian butt lifts. I’d also get some of those fake teeth everyone in Hollywood has.

A nip/tuck is an absolute requirement for me after children. I’ve told husband from the get go I will not conceive if there isn’t money put aside in advance for me to fix something. (If it needs to be fixed, of course. Some women are lucky, but I want to be prepared in case I’m not.)

I’ve had rhynoplasty and Botox.

I was thinking about implants, but I play too many sports for those and i’m not willing to take the recovery time just yet. That may be added to the list after children.

I’m all for doing what it takes to make yourself happy. People can afford a cruise 2 years in a row, but claim lipo is too expensive. It’s about priorities. They’re different for each of us.

biancalowe8 :  Nope. I like how I look and I’m not subjecting myself to pain and recovery unless it’s medically necessary. I eat well, use sunscreen and moisturizer, and try to take care of myself but I will EARN those laugh lines and wear them proudly. Even now that I’m pregnant and my body is changing every day I wouldn’t have it any other way – it’s all a part of this body’s journey. I have some scars too and everytime I look at them they remind me of a story and it’s a part of my history.

Absolutely. I haven’t had any work done, but if I could afford it I would get breast implants, lip injections, botox and a nose job.

Yes, I have always wanted a nicer nose!  I would totally get rhinoplasty, but my husband doesn’t like the idea.  But I am terrified of surgery and things going wrong and then hating my nose even more after!!  My nose isn’t perfect (in my opinion) but it’s still better than having a botched nose.

I recognize this is easy for me to say since I’m in my mid 20s right now, but no I don’t think I would. I took a class in college on body modification and learned a lot about plastic surgery. I wouldn’t want the unnecessary risks but also I think it effects societies overall perspective on “normal.” If women start getting more and more breast implants then the average cup size rises from say a B to a C cup. Then women who have B cups feel like to be “normal” they have to get breast implants to get at least a C cup. I support peoples personal right to get plastic surgery if they want to but I don’t want to participate in that

No, I’m not perfect, but I’m content with my body. If something were to change for me physically, I think I’d still be hard pressed to choose surgery.

I’d have all my teeth veneered and get some boobs in a heartbeat lol. Other than that, no, nothing else interests me. I don’t care for my nose, but every nose job I’ve seen makes the person look totally different, and I don’t want that.

I have pretty thin lips, so I guess I wouldn’t mind them fuller, but not something I’ve ever looked into. I still may get the boobs down the road. Just hesitant, not because of cost, but because I’ve heard so many horror stories. Same with my teeth. I actually have pretty darn good teeth, but I envy those with PERFECT, white teeth. Again, I’ve heard so many horror stories that I’ll likely never get it done and I can’t complain. I have all my teeth and they’re straight, so I don’t want to wreck them trying to make them perfect lol…

abeeinlove :  I had zero pain from my reduction. I did take 3 weeks off of work to full recover, you want to heal right the first time. I took the meds as prescribed every 4 hours for the first 4 days, then weaned off, didn’t lift my arms at all the first week, no lifting anything over 1-2 pounds till full recovered.

Did your mom and sister both go to the same doc? I would not go to that doctor. Also, my insurance covered my surgery since I had health issues from how large my breast were in proportion to my body… nerve damage, back pain, neck pain, migraines…. I’ve only had 2 or 3 migraines since the surgery which was about 4 years ago..? I use to get migraines weekly.

Nope! Not for me. Was hanging out with the ladies this weekend and they were complaining about their boobs sagging. They’re around my age, some younger, some older, but perhaps some have larger chests, every single one was complaining about their breasts. When asked about mine I said “nope, mine are perfect!”. I’m glad I have that confidence I guess!

I have always had really huge, pendulous breasts that have caused me back and shoulder aches and they’ve gotten even worse with pregnancy and nursing (went from a 34DD to a 36G)! So I’m seriously considering looking into whether insurance will cover a reduction once I’m done nursing.
