Anyone had plastic surgery??

post #1 of 308
Thread Starter 
I just wrote in another thread about watching Dr. 90210 on TV....I love seeing the before and after of people.

Has anyone here had plastic surgery?? What did you have and do you love it? Oh, and how much did it hurt afterwards?!?

Thanks for sharing!

Obviously I haven't done anything....but I've thought about it!

I use to have restylane injections in my top lip. I have a really full bottom lip and a thinner upper lip.. I just wanted to even it out. I haven't had it done in about a year. 500.00 a trip is really expensive for something that only lasts about 7 months or so. I am not sure if that is even considered plastic surgery.

I hade sinus problems in my nose and I always wanted to fix it so I did it during that operation and it came out soo good, I didn't have a big nose or anything they didn't really do much now that I think about it?.....oh well I was 16

My mom has had a tummy tuck, breast lift, botox, restylane in wrinkles, and she had lipo on the sides of her tummy and thighs, to tell you the truth I never thought she needed it, but she said excersise was never gonna get her anywhare and that fast so she literally took off 10 years. I think she looks great, her face looks very natural , and her body is fantastic. and I could not believe how little her scars are. she has none ! she went down from a size 6 to a size 3!!!

I think it is weird to alter your body for no reason. I understand if you have something happen that disfigures you. To go and get your body changed for reasons of pure vanity contributes to the already rampant superficial nature of humans...

I have not had any besides the removal of a mole on my face, which did not really hurt at all...
But I think that if people want to change their apperance than more power to them. If it makes a person feel better about themselves and helps their life, then I am all for it.

I say do it if you want...No-one should judge others for what they do to their own bodies...It is your own business...I am no judge and do not judge others for their choices....and do not understand those who do judge others for getting something done...

This isn't the type of thing I think is weird... Totally understandable.
What I think is weird is when people get things implanted in their face or boobs or whatever. I saw this woman who had cheek implants, talk about disfigured. She had them removed because they impaired her vision. Yikes. I am not judging anyone who gets plastic surgery, I would just feel super weird about getting it done to myself. I can think it is vain without judging people. Judgment is ultimately what drives people to change their appearance, is it not. Changing yourself so you look better to others just enforces the behavior (of judgement) among the population, no?

My mother has had a lotof work, she doesn't look fake though she just has procedures according to her age, she took off 10 years she looks awesome, I think changing your body is ok if it makes you feel better about yourself, I know self esteem should not come from your outside appearence but unfortunatley if you don't feel good about certain things of your body, it does lower self esteem, and if people could feel better I'm all for it

I would get my boobs done by Dr.Rey, that guy knows what he's doing! Who knows if I'll ever really do it, my husband said I can if I want to, he doesn't care. Maybe one day, once I'm done having kids! Other than that, I wouldn't get anything done.

And when you girls say just love your body the way it is...would you be saying that if you had a huge nose and ears that were like dumbos? I always look at it that way, I would get work done if I looked like that, no questions asked! Just my thoughts...

i think i would be way too scared to get plastic surgery - i know it is really rare, but the thought of dying just to be more attractive is kinda scary.
i am not being judgemental, but if someone has really low self esteem issues, plastic surgery is not going to fix it.
I have seen teens with B cup breasts and they are going on about how much of an outcast they are b/c they don't have D cups, so they need implants The body is still changing and breasts can continue growing up until age 21, so I dont think teens should be allowed to have this done.

Yea I wasn't fully developed till my mid 20s... I was a small B cup as a teen. Now I am almost too big for C.

I have been thinking about getting surgery to get a very attractive beer belly, but I hate pain, so I am still undecided about getting it. Because, in my opinion, nothing is sexier than a guy with a nice healthy beer belly, right guys?? That is why we get them.
post #20 of 308
hm. I really don't know. (sorry, I know we've deviated from the original question..)

There is definately something to be said for just accepting and loving who you are...BUT that being said, from what I've seen, the members of this forum seem to all be incredibly attractive and maybe aren't in a position where we can actually empathize with hating how you look...sure, we all have little things that we'd change, but to actually HATE your entire appearance..I don't think any of us can understand that..(from what I've seen)

I think that, like everything, there is a line. Personally, at this moment, I wouldn't and think it's silly, a waste of time, money, pain and effort. That said, I'm 24. Who knows how I'm going to feel when I'm 45.
I don't think there's anything wrong with say, changing your nose/breasts/whatever if you really really hate them. But when it goes extreme and you're up to surgery number 10, maybe it's time to step back and evaluate if it's really your physical self that you need to be working on.

SO many ppl look just hideous after PS. A lot of the time, it seems like it's one of those things where once you start, you can't stop.

I don't know, imo there are a lot of alternatives to plastic surgery and it sometimes seems like a copout/easy way out and a little extreme (ie, getting lipo when you're a size 4...jeepers.

anyways, are there things I'd change about myself personally? Sure. I wouldn't mind my, uhm, fairly nonexistant breasts to be a little more...prevalent. But, I'm also a dancer. I danced for 17 years, including professionally for 2yrs..I couldn't have done that with D's. So maybe how we're built is how we're supposed to be. (yeah yeah, cue sappy afterschool special music here..)

teenage girls dont go out with their buddies to the doctors office to get their boobs done like they go to the mall. and its not just few hundred dollars.
the way you said it sounds like every girl with B cups under the age of 21 are going out getting boob jobs which is not true

i'm not totally opposed to plastic surgery. I'm pretty happy with my appearance but I have been watching lots of plastic surgery shows lately and I see what childbirth can do to a woman's body. Stuff stretches out and then kind of deflates =( eek!!
in that case i definitely wouldnt mind a tummy tuck or a lift. i dont have kids yet but if no amount of working out or dieting can help this than i'll be first in line!

out of curiousity has anyone gotten breast implants? it seems so common but i dont know anyone that has em.

Well I see it this way, I look the way I look. And it wouldn't matter if I looked this way or another way. Who's to say my nose is huge & I have dumbo ears? I refuse to allow someone else to define the way I think/feel about myself. Its self esteem, like jetta said plastic surgery is not the cure. What will they find wrong with themselves after the first thing is "fixed"?

Oh and what is this teaching our children who are products of us? Do you think they won't notice? If mommy & daddy think there's something "wrong" with their apperance the children will come to believe the same thing about themselves.

May I ask why you feel the need for boob job? What if your daughter has inherited those boobs?
post #24 of 308
Not yet, but I don't know if a breast reduction is considered PS. I have already talked to a Dr. and he said to wait till after I have kids. THat was 2 yrs. ago, I haven't had any kids and am really ambivalent about having them. If I get pregnant, great, but if not, I will live with it. No matter how much wieght I lose, I will always be a DD/DDD, whether it is a 34, 36 or 38. I did like it for the first part of my life, but now, I just don't enjoy the imbalance. It looks natural on me, but I want smaller, and insurance will cover it!

So when I finally do go under the knife, I will probably ship in and get a lift at the same time. I have NEVER been perky,

hmm...i think you misunderstood. by no means do i think that most teens are going out getting boob jobs even if they are unhappy with themselves. i am just talking about the ones i have read about or heard about on TV.

here are some numbers taken from 2004:
Last year, 3,841 women 18 or younger underwent breast augmentation, a 24-percent jump from 3,095 in 2002, which represents a 19-percent increase from 2,596 in 2001, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Only 978 girls had the procedure in 1992. (Women between 19 and 34 account for a large segment of those getting implants; 114,005 last year.)

The phenomenon is taking off across the country, but doctors say implants are especially popular in Texas and California. "Breasts are a fashion item," said Dr. Garry Brody, professor of plastic surgery at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles. "In the 1920s--the flapper era--women were binding their breasts to make them look smaller to suit the fashions."

"When I graduated high school in 1990, the big thing was nose jobs," said Jo Trizila, director of media relations for the Greater Dallas Chamber. Now, 8 of her 10 friends have implants. Those who couldn't afford them took out a loan.

Its safe to say that a larger percentage of teens (who have parents who have the money and are willing) are getting breast implants.
