Hey CD!

You are getting all this done together?


I don't know, that's one of my biggest questions for him is that would it be better to go under the knife just once, or would the length of surgery to have it all done at one time be a bigger risk (being under anesthesia that long)?

I worked as a surgical tech for a few years before my daughter (2nd child) was born, around '95 - '97. So I'm pretty familiar and comfortable with the thought of surgery and what goes on. AND the techniques have come a long way in just that short a period of time! Plus I've researched this surgeon pretty well. He's a very upstanding surgeon not only in his field as a professional- but also as a member of the community here in Atlanta. That makes me feel good, too! <img src="/images/graemlins/laugh.gif" alt="" />

I couldn't really answer this question as a definite one or the other. At the moment I think my answer would be no, I wouldn't...yet if something drastic were to happen to me that altered my natural looks, such as (heaven forbid) a car accident, then I would certainly be open to plastic surgery. I'm 49 years old, and parts of my body have been making a mad dash south without the rest of me for the past few years now. My face, I've noticed in the past year, has been becoming more defined with age lines. I also inherited - from my dad - bags under the eyes, which adds to an 'aged' look (thanks, Dad <img src="/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif" alt="" />). Sometimes I look at these things and think - very briefly - it would be nice to be able to change some of it. But then I remind myself of something I once heard; that the lines and wrinkles are all a part of me...a history of my life experience that I wear. And so it doesn't really bother me to let it show. Mind you, I suppose I'd probably go to the salon and have any gray hair concealed if it were to show up, but beyond that, I guess I accept the rest of the aging process. However, my sister - who is 4 years younger than me - has a lot of gray hair starting to appear, but she says she will never have it covered over. So really, it all comes down to a matter of personal preference.

Just so long as my dog doesn't start running away at the sight of me in the mornings, I guess I'll stay this way. At least for now. <img src="/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />

Pinning my ears where they should be would be the only plastic surgery I would get but at my age I don't think I ever will (used to bother me when i was young but not anymore). If I ever get in an accident or I am a victim of a crime then I would get reconstructive surgeries if need be but that's it. I refuse to risk it.

I have had several plastic surgeries done. Last one was on my eyelids. They drooped and it made me worry about my peripheral vision. What if I didn't see something coming up and I wiped out a school bus full of kids? So I had the eyelids done. Five years ago I also had my cheeks pulled to the side a bit to get rid of some wrinkles.

That depends. I feel that plastic surgery is often abused. There are times when it's necessary, such as after a tragic accident or birth defect, but it should still fall within some sort of sound intellectual framework.

I have had several procedures done. I had my eyelids done because at my age they were getting droopy. This interfered with my peripheral vision. Since I drive, I was worried about maybe wiping out a school bus full of kids!
I also had a tuck because I had a gastric bypass and have lost 210 pounds. My old 'bread basket' was really hanging and it had to go.
I had my nose done because I had always thought it was too wide. That nose had always bugged me and now I'm happy with my new nose.
I thought I would get my boobs done after I lost the weight but surprisingly they look pretty darn good.
