biancalowe8 :  I used to be against plastic surgery but I’ve come around. Let’s see. I’m not sure of this counts but it’s definitely getting work done. I would want full face laser to remove acne scars and laser hair removal. 

I’m not sure if I would have the guts to do this but I really want to even out my jaw line. I have TMJ syndrome and its affecting my jawline. I would love to get that fixed not only for jaw issues but to make it look nice and even both sides. It’s made me very self conscious lately and if I could get over the claustrophobic feelings of not being able to use my jaw during healing, I would totally do that.

Later in life, boob lift and reduction for sure. I would rant to get rid of my undereye bags that I know are going to get worse.

If I could get over the fear of Lipo, I would get my thighs lipoed.

I don’t have much interest in surgery, tbh. I’m scared to get blood drawn let alone put under hahaha. But I would defintiely want to get my teeth fixed and whitened. I would get a physical trainer to come to my house. And I think I would do a lot of “spa” type stuff. Facials, maybe get my eyebrows filled in, lash extentions, ect.

kaitie :  I’ve thought about it a lot and even had a consult in my 20s but I decided to wait until after having children. I’m breastfeeding now and am an I cup, it’s ridiculous. My husband is just so against it, he thinks it’s not worth the risk. We revisit it when we are finished having children.

sweatergal007 :  I didn’t feel it was that bad at all. But I did rest and made sure I was recovered. I had more than 3 weeks of vacation saved at work…so I took 3 weeks off of work. They say you can return to work in 2 weeks with restricted duty. However, that would not be possible in my field. You wear a full support bra that has velcor straps. You want to wear this at least the full 3-6 weeks, I wore this I believe about 6 weeks. 

I had 2 drains post op. There was a board on here where some stated their doctor didn’t use drains. Mine did. They are Jackson-pratt drains that you empty daily and record so that your doctor can be sure you are done draining… no pockets forming…which can lead to infection. Anywoo. I had no issues. The drains were removed at the end of the first week. **This was a tad painful, your not fully healed and the drains are removed quickly. It feels like a sharp rubber band sting. I had to drive myself to my appointment, otherwise I would have taken my pain meds before. Also, the pain meds knock me out, so there was no taking any pain med before this exam. Get someone else to drive you if you have drains to be removed and take your pain meds.

You can’t shower for the first few days and you can not lift your arms above your shoulders at all. I forget how long that was for… maybe 2 weeks. So, once you can shower, it’s tilting your head to the side to wash your hair… that way your arms are not above your head.

There is no lifting heavy things till recovered. You want to heal right. You will have scars BUT those have mostly faded. 

It’s the best thing I ever did for myself. I felt the difference in my shoulders immediately post op. I kept shrugging my shoulders, I couldn’t believe how much lighter they felt!! I wore a spaghetti strap dress the following summer for the first time!! <3

biancalowe8 :  I think it’s a personal decision and the person should do what makes them happy. Clearly, there are mental/self esteem issues if a person is addicted to it and wants to completely alter their appearance by many surgeries- but thats a complete other issue.

I find it rediculous that people even judge the opinions of others who opt for plastic surgery. Frankly it’s none of their damn business. Do what makes you happy.

And for the record OP, I had breast implants at age 18 and do not regret it. At 23 I did lip injections and honestly want to do it again if I had plenty of disposable income and if my Fiance wasn’t so against it.

snowflake8 :  Congrats on baby! <3

I am thinking about laser hair removal and have read up quite a bit on it. The thing that puts me off is that someone who had it (in a youtube review) said it smelled like burning skin or branding cattle. 🙁 I have also researched the Tria for at home laser hair removal. But I’ve heard you won’t get the same results as what you can get from an in-office visit. Do you still need to shave your underarms from time to time?

 Nose!!!!! I regret so so much that I haven’t done it when I could actually afford it. And now there is no way I will be able to afford it in the nearest future. I do respect all this NATURAL LOOK idea, but you need to do whatever makes you happy. I look at my nose in the mirror in different angles like twice a day at least! Its ridiculous:)))

Honestly depends on the chances of scarring. In the future I probably wouldn’t say no to some lipo suction and potentially a breast augmentation if they age badly. Maybe some lasering to remove stretch marks but that’s about it.

biancalowe8 :  NOOOOOooo WAY! Unless I was knocking on death’s door already… No offense, but I am very critical of the medical industry, and I much prefer to keep my body out of doctors’ hands as much as possible. Now, if a genie granted me 1 wish to magically enhance my body, I would happily request a 6-pack and a button nose, but going under the knife? Absolutely not. By The Way, no shade on those that do get plastic surgery…I envy your courage. And no shade to our medical professionals out there..we love you guys! This is just my opinion. xoxo

Not really. I might get the breast implants I had put in when I was 21 removed and have my boobs resculpted so they didn’t look weird sans implants. I’d prob just leave them alone though.  I would take better care of my skin and use top of the line products if money were no issue though. I might consider fillers and botox. My Mom bod doesn’t bug me. I’m sure I’m the perfect candidate for a tummy tuck but I’d never do it. My kids say my tummy smiles lol. I don’t have extra skin really, or bad strectch marks, but right above my c-section scar and curving up towards my hips my belly “smiles”. I’m terrified of surgery.

Oh hell yeah…shucks, I am not rich and want plastic surgery now.  I wanna lipo all around my tummy/flanks…total 360. I won’t ever touch my face though (well, I might consider botox.I am 39 and still dont have wrinkles so dont need it yet).

I would get cosmetic surgery. I have a very deep, very old scar on my face that I hate. It would be expensive to have revisioned.

BrideK2Wings :  Thank you so much for the info! Omg spaghetti straps! I dream of those! Lol. 

I used to have an A and then had a growth spurt plus weight gain now I’m a D and a friend says probably DD. I need to get fitted properly on the meantime. Honestly I think a B or C would helpa lot plus a lift. They feel so heavy.

I had a breadt augmentation 3 years ago. Best decision I’ve e re made for myself! & I paid for them too. It was a divorce present to myself. 

 

I currently get Botox for migraines but I love the benefits it gives me for forehead wrinkles too. If something were to come up & I wanted to do it & could afford it then I absolutely would.
